Game Arrivals: Week of Jul. 27th - Aug. 2nd

Come in and check out this week's game arrivals. This week's shipment includes includes more new games and a newly released game expansions.  Here's a look at what came in:

Regular Show Fluxx
Looney Labs

Adding to the Fluxx collection is the newly released Regular Show Fluxx, a collaboration between Looney Labs and Cartoon Network. 

Join Mordecai, Rigby and the whole gang. Do your friends a solid and distract the Destroyer of Worlds to save The Park… but don’t let Benson catch you doing donuts or you’re fired!

For those not familiar, Fluxx is a card game all about change as the name implies. The rules are simple.  Begin the game with a hand of 3 cards and one basic rule: draw one card then play one card.  Follow the directions written on the card you chose to play. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change from how many cards are drawn, played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.  You won't know what the winning condition is until someone plays a Goal card. If you don't like the Goal, play a new Goal card. If you don't like the Rules, play a new Rule card. Collect the Keepers and avoid the Creepers. Match the Keepers to the Goal and win.

Lost Legacy - The Starship

Also new is AEG's Lost Legacy: The Starship  designed by Seiji Kanai and Hayato Kisaragi. Seiji Kanai is the game designer who created the card game, Love Letter.

In the distant past, a starship from a faraway world appeared in the sky.  Damaged in battle, the craft broke apart and traced lines of fire across the horizon.  These falling stars crashed to the surface, and in the ages to come, became enshrined in legends as the Lost Legacy.  Discover where the Lost Legacy can be found and win the game.

Lost Legacy: The Starship is a card game of risk deduction, and luck stowed in a blue and silver velour pouch.  The game consists of 2 phases. The first phase of the game consists of playing your cards with the goal of eliminating your opponents and seeking to find the Lost Legacy card.  The Investigation phase begins when the draw deck runs out in which eligible players get a shot at identifying the Lost Legacy card and thereby winning.

Say Bye To The Villains is another new game from AEG and designer Seiji Kanai. 
This is a cooperative card game of vanquishing villains. 

Say Bye To The Villains
...valiant heroes, called vanquishers, who stand up to protect good people from evil villains beyond the reach of the law. Vanquishers work in the shadows, cutting down evil wherever it can be found, but they must be quick to discover the villains’ secrets and constantly hone their martial skills in order to succeed. 

...The vanquishers themselves are not invincible; ambushing a villain in a dark alley with no preparation could result in defeat as easily as victory.
