Game Arrivals: Week of Jan. 7th - 11th

Working hard at getting all of your favorite games back in stock while also adding some new ones.  Here is this week's arrivals:

 New Game
Tasty Minstrel Games
New from Tasty Minstrel Games and game designer, Seth Jaffee (Eminent Domain)  is Crusaders: Thy Will Be Done.  

Get ready to ride across a map of Europe in this 2 to 4 player strategy game.  Actions are determined by each player's up-gradable manacala-type-rondel.  Strength of each action is determined by the number of cubes in a rondel location.  Managing your personal rondel is critical.  Locations on the main board must be conquered before one of 4 different buildings can be built.  Each built structure releases more strength for future actions and may even release an additional knight or two.  Points are accumulated by conjuring and by building.  May the most knightly player accumulate the most points and victory.

Yea - Back In Stock! 
City Of Gods
NSKN Games
Teotihuacan: City Of Gods is a 1 to 4 player heavy strategy game by game designer Daniele Tascini (Council Of 4 and Tzolk'in).

Travel back in time to the greatest city in Mesoamerica, and become a part of its history.
Teotihuacan: City Of Gods is a strategic game of worker and resources management, clever planning and adaptability.  Each player commands a group of worker dice which move around locations on a modular board.With each move a player relocates one worker to a new location, always choosing one of its two areas to perform an action (and upgrade their workforce), or a powerful bonus (but no upgrade).  As the mysterious  twilight of Teotihuacan approaches, players research technologies, raise the magnificent Pyramid of the Sun, build houses for the inhabitants of the city, collect precious masks, and climb the steps of three great temples to secure bonuses granted by the favor of the gods.

New Expansion
Red Dragon Inn Allies
Spyke and Flower
Slugfest Games

Spyke and Flower are two alternate reality characters shamelessly pilfered from the world of Munchkin for this addition to the Red Dragon Inn series.

These 2 adventuring Munchkins' sole purpose in life is to kill monsters, take their stuff, and level up... so they can kill more monsters and take more stuff.  In this alternate timeline, they've come to The Red Dragon Inn to see what's up at this tavern that they've heard so much about.  The good is the tavern's new patrons are eager to make a good impression.  The bad is it isn't working!  Level up - get treasure to amp up your card abilities.  Try the Prize Variant to add some spice to gambling rounds.
