Game Arrivals: Feb 5th - 8th

Here is this week's exciting board games and jigsaw puzzles arrivals:

New Frontiers
Rio Grande Games
New from Rio Grande Games is New Frontiers a stand-alone board game version of Race For The Galaxy
Description from BGG
Many worlds that players can acquire have special powers, with these worlds being drawn from a bag during the Explore phase. Unlike in Race, in New Frontiers worlds need colonists to be settled, in addition to either payments or conquest.
Some worlds are "windfall" worlds and receive a good upon being settled. Others are production worlds and receive goods when the Produce action is selected. Goods can be traded for credits or consumed for victory points.Play continues until one or more of four game ending conditions is reached. After all actions for that round have been done, the player with the most victory points from settled worlds, developments, 9-cost development bonuses, and VP chips earned from consuming goods wins.

Ganz Schoon Clever
aka That's Pretty Clever
Stronghold Games

New from Stronghold Games is That's Pretty Clever! (aka Ganz Schon Clever) a dice game for 1 to 4 players.

Choose your dice carefully marking them in the matching colored areas on your score sheet.  Putting together tricky chain-scoring opportunities can rack up the points.  The dice you don't use are as important as the dice you choose.  Every die that's numerically smaller than the chosen one can be used by the other players, keeping everyone in the game at all times.

Rebel/ Asmodee

K2 now is back in stock after being missing in action for quite awhile.  Each player manages 2 climbers to reach the top of the mountain and survive not only the climb up, but also the descent. The climbers start at a a base camp where they can rest and acclimatize.  On their turn players will use a variety of movement cards and acclimatization cards.  Sections of the mountain are harder to climb and require more movement points to progress.  The lowest elevations allow climbers to gain acclimatization points.  The higher climbers go on the mountain the more acclimatization points are required to be there.  Each climber carries a tent that can be pitched to provide shelter not only for themselves but also for their climbing team member which in turn will save them valuable acclimatization points.
