Game Arrivals Aug 22, 2018

Here are this week's game arrivals:

New Game
Low Lands
Z-Man Games
In Lowlands, players strive to build a farm along the wave battered coast of the North Sea.  At the same time they must work with their opponents to build a dike to ensure the safety of all.
Each player receives a pool of farmers that can be assigned to complete tasks such as buying sheep or constructing farm expansions. 
No matter what you do on your farm, the water will eventually rise and threaten to to sweep away some of your hard-earned profits. To prevent this, you can contribute farmers and resources to the construction of dikes that protect everyone. A sturdy dike will reward those who helped construct it. If players neglect the dike, however, it will inevitably break, forcing those that contributed the least to take dike breach tokens that have adverse effects at the end of the game.

 New Game Expansion
Age Of Giants
Blue Oragne Games
Age of Giants is the first expansion for Kingdomino and Queendomino.
Age of Giants adds more challenges, more player interaction, and allows for a fifth player to join in on the game. Choose a tile with a giant, then add a giant meeple to your kingdom- it covers up any crown of your choosing. Choose a tile with a giant’s footsteps, then pass one giant meeple from your kingdom to another player, who then must cover up a crown in their own kingdom. Covered crowns do not score points. End of game bonuses are eliminated, instead, before the start of each game, players must draw 2 challenge tiles. These provide additional ways to get points.
