This week's arrivals includes a re-released game and some new game expansions.  Here's a look at what hit the shelves:

Z-Man Games

Vikings was originally published in 2007.  It was on the Spiel des Jahres recommended list that year.  Now Z-Man Games has reprinted this family friendly strategy game. Players are leaders of a tribe of Vikings tasked with the scouting and settling of undiscovered islands off the coast of the mainland.  Craftsmen, nobles, and warriors will need to be stationed at these islands to claim and defend the land that will gain you gold and fame for your tribe.  The acquisition and cost of new islands and Vikings is governed by the game board's rotating wheel.
