Game Arrivals: July 6th - 12th

Come in and check out this week's game arrivals.  Here's a look at what arrived:

Legendary Villains
Upper Deck Entertainment

The Marvel Legendary™ universe has just taken a twist with the newly released Legendary™ Villains. Now you are the villains playing either with each other or against each other but with the same goal of defeating the Legendary Heroes.

As with Marvel Legendary, Legendary Villains is a stand alone deck-building card game.  What's really cool with this release is that Legendary Villains is compatible with all Legendary sets so you can really mix it up. 

Legendary Villains includes 500 new content cards, 4 original art pieces per Ally, 15 allies, 4 commanders, 7 adversary groups, and a game mat.

New from SET Enterprises is Karma, an easy to learn family fun card game.
SET Enterprises

 The object of Karma is to get rid of your cards.  Each player has a hand of cards as well as cards on the table in front of them.  Cards from a players' hand must be played before their table cards can be played.  On a turn, players will play a card to a central discard pile.  The played card must be equal to or higher than the top card on the discard pile in order to avoid picking up the discard pile.  Player's can deplete their cards more quickly by playing doubles or triples.  There are special Karma cards that can either help you or mess with your opponents.  The last player with cards loses the game.

Adding to our kids selection are these 2 Disney themed games:

Disney Planes - High Pilotage

Disney Planes: High Pilotage is an exciting aerial racing game aimed at ages 7 and up. High Pilotage includes a model of Dusty Crophopper and Ripslinger from the animated Disney film Planes.  Players assemble their plane and then race through the stand-up gates set up to create a race track.  Each plane has its own special abilities. Players must choose their speed and direction carefully so as to avoid getting penalty tokens.  Special maneuvers like a barrel-rol or a U-turn may be necessary to keep your plane on track. The player who ends the game with the fewest penalty tokens is the winner.

Disney Cars - Cool Twists

Disney Cars: Cool Twists is an exciting car racing game aimed at ages 7 and up. Cool Twists includes a model of McQueen and Francesco from the Disney/Pixar film Cars.  Players assemble their car then race through a customized big race track.  Each character car is unique and has it's own abilities for the race. Special events on the track can change the entire race in an instant.  The winner is the first player to cross the finish line after 3 lap
