Game Arrivals: Oct. 23rd - 28th

Here is this week's exciting game arrivals:

   New Game!
Pandemic Legacy
Season 2
Z-Man Games
Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 has finally arrived in either a yellow box or a black box!  Regardless of box color, it's the same game on the inside.  

Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 is a stand-alone unique cooperative game for 2 - 4 players and follow-up to Pandemic Legacy: Season 1.

A New Mission
The world almost ended seventy-one years ago. A virulent plague came out of nowhere and ravaged the world. For three generations, small groups of survivors have struggled to keep the world alive. Operating from floating stations known as “havens,” they have maintained a loose network of the largest cities by delivering supplies to the mainland. But their efforts are no longer enough. Cities are falling off the grid and supplies are running low. The world needs a group of heroes to emerge and lead it through this crisis. In Pandemic Legacy: Season 2, this task has fallen to you. You must reestablish supply lines and get the world back on its feet. Along the way, the decisions you make affect future games. As you play, you will unlock new components, make new discoveries about your world, and stumble upon secrets that could change the course of history. No matter what happens, though, the world is counting on you. You are humanity’s last chance.

    New Game!
Ex Libris
Renegade Games
Calling all librarians and avid book readers, Ex Libris a new game from Renegade Games, is the game for you.  This game has colorful and clever artwork and book titles.

In Ex Libris, you are collecting rare and valuable books in hopes that the Mayor will appoint you as the village's Grand Librarian. Unfortunately, several of your colleagues are competing for this title as well.

For the most impressive library you will work with your assistants to seek out a variety of impressive tomes insuring that they are not on the banned list. These prominent works will be placed alphabetically on stable shelves.
Shrewd planning, cunning tactics, and perhaps a little magic is what it'll take to reach your goal.

Clank! In Space
Renegade Games
Clank! In Space! is a sequel to Clank! the deck-building adventure games by Renegade Games.
Clank! In! Space! is built on the same game system as Clank!: A Deck-Building Adventure, with players building a personal deck of cards throughout the course of the game, with the cards allowing them to move through the spaceship, attack things, acquire new cards, and — oh yeah — make noise to attract Lord Eradikus and potentially seal their own doom.

    New Game!
Capital Lux
Aporta Games
Capital Lux is a tactical set collection card game from Aporta Games.

The object of the game is to collect sets of different color cards in your play area (hometown) where each color type has the highest total value without that total exceeding the total value of that color type in the central area (city).  Each color type has a specific ability when played to the city: gain a coin, draw and place a secret  modifier card, draw and add a card to your hand, and move the lowest value card from the city to your hometown. Knowing when to play to the city versus playing to your hometown is the key. At the end of the round each player tallies each of their color sets and compares it to the tallied value (adjusted for any modifiers) it's respective color set in the city. The player with with the highest value within the limit receives the highest numbered card of that color from the city as end game victory points. Any hometown color sets that exceeds the limit are forfeited. Everyone else keeps their sets and begins a new round. At the end of the game the player with the most points wins.

Watch Zee Garcia's video to learn how to play Capital Lux.
