Game Arrivals: Oct. 26th - Oct. 31st

Here is this week's arrival of games:

New in are 2 more in the Timeline card game series from Asmodee, Timeline American History and Timeline Americana. As with the other themes in this series, each can be played as a stand-alone game or combined with the other themes.
 American History
The goal in Timeline is to be the first to rid your hand of cards. A timeline is started in the center of the table with a starting card date side up.  In turn players will select a card from their hand only seeing the written historical event and places it before or after a card already in the timeline.  The card is then flipped over and the date is revealed.  If it is correctly placed in the timeline it remains.  However, if it is not in the correct date sequence that card is discarded and the player must take a card from the draw pile into their hand.  Be the first to place all your cards and you win.

American History - Do you remember when Harvard College or NASA were founded? Was Watergate before Woodstock?  Put your knowledge of American history to the test.

Americana - Test your knowledge of America's popular past.  Do you remember when the Red Sox traded Babe Ruth, or when Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic?  When was Route 66 established?

Marvel Dice Masters
Uncanny X-Men

In Marvel Dice Masters Uncanny X-Men you will put together a team of Marvel super heroes made up of custom dice and character cards.  Your ultimate goal is to reduce your opponents' life points to zero.  Throughout the course of the game you will roll your dice to see what resources you have available. You will need to collect energy, recruit new heroes from your collection, and send your team of super heroes into the field to strike at your opponent.  Can you build the more powerful super hero team?
