Blackout Hong Kong is a typical Alexander Pfister design.  There is a lot going on.  Each player will have 3 crew working in the city of each round.  One crew member is added to each crew each turn.  The bigger the crew the more they can accomplish.  Once everyone used all 3 of their crews they check for crew members left in reserve.  If that number is low it will be necessary to disband your largest crew and put them all back in reserve.  Each player will be working on a series of goals they have selected from an ever-changing tableau of goal cards.  Players gain points for securing sections of the city and for completing goals.  the player with the most points will be the winner.  The game also includes a 5 chapter campaign made for more adventurous volunteers.

Godsforge
Atlas Games
New from Atlas Games is Godsforge, a simultaneous crafting and combat game for 2 to 4 players. All players roll their dice, craft their spells, and launch their attacks at the same time. There is no downtime.

publisher description
Players roll dice and play cards to set up defenses, collect resources, and attack their opponents. You win if you are still alive after reducing all of your opponents to zero life or less.
Play follows a sequence of four phases: Upkeep, Forge Roll, Reveal, and Attack. Within each phase all players act simultaneously. That is, everyone rolls their dice at the same time, then everyone plays a card at the same time, then the played cards all attack at the same time. No player may move on to the next phase until all players are done with the current phase. All four phases constitute one round. When all phases are complete, a new round begins.

Holy Grail Games
New from Holy Grail Games is Museum, a set collection game that allow players, as the curators to choose the playing style that suits them. Set in the 1900’s , the game is all about the golden age of museums, when worldwide travel was becoming a reality and demand for exotic displays of objects from faraway lands was high.

Museum
Players build up their personal museums with artifacts gathered from four different continents. To display them in your Museum’s galleries, it must be paid for with one or several cards of equal or higher value, which are put into your warehouse pile. Any artifact in your warehouse while still in your possession can be taken by one of your opponents.

Each artifact card has a value that represents the number of points you gain by adding it to your galleries. To gain even more points, you can create collections by positioning cards adjacent to one another on your player board, much like in a real museum. Collections can be based on one of the twelve different civilizations in the game, or on the 6 different archaeological domains, so combine your cards creatively to get the highest score.
