Rue Morgue
Cool Mini or Not
Take the lead of a survivor team and harness its members' unique skills to achieve victory against hordes of zombies! The infected creatures are controlled by simple rules and a deck of cards. Play 14 missions on 14 different maps made from the included modular map tiles, or create your own...
Choose your team members among 12 survivors & lead them with Team Actions.... Supplies are scarce enough to pit each team against team in the brutal Competitive mode, but weapons like bows, chainsaws, Molotov cocktails, shotguns, & urban maces can be found anywhere. The only way out is Zombicide!



Zombicide Season 3: Rue Morgue includes 80 miniatures, 12 experience trackers, 9 double-sided game tiles, 155 mini-cards, and more. While it is a standalone game it can also be combined with the other Zombicide base games and expansions.

Castle Panic's newest game expansion, The Dark Titan arrived in this week as well.

The Dark Titan expansion brings more panic. Agranok has returned and has brought a new army of monsters to lay siege to the Castle.  Agranok is an 8-point monster and has 5 different difficulty levels that you can choose from. Included in his new army is a Boom Troll & the Dark Sorceress.  The Boom Troll carries explosives and can blow up parts of your Castle unless you stop him. The Dark Sorceress cripples your hand size while in play.

Breathe deep, you will gain additional assistance in your fight to defend.  The Cavalier, when he gets on the board, can deal up to 2 points of damage to any monsters in the same space.  Also Support Tokens can damage monsters or give you special advantages if they make it all the way to the Castle.
