New Games To Watch For!

Obscurio – Available Now!

The Grimoire guides their team towards the exit using images, upon which they point at certain details. Working together, the other players have to find the exit as quickly as possible while avoiding picking the wrong cards. However, a member of the team is a traitor looking to lead the other players astray. A wide variety of traps are on your way to the exit of the library, making player communication harder!

Obscurio is a family game, an original mix between an image-based communication game and a secret role game in which the players have to be careful when sharing ideas with their team. Supported by rich contents, Obscurio proposes a fresh new experience in its genre by putting the emphasis on the details of the images and the constant doubt created by the presence of the traitor.

Our team had a chance to get hands on with this game and it is great! It’s from the creators of Mysterium and we have a demo copy at our Brookfield location that you can come check out!

Ecos: First Continent – Available October 25th!

What if the formation of Earth had gone differently?

In Ecos: First Continent, players are forces of nature molding the planet, but with competing visions of its grandeur. You have the chance to create a part of the world, similar but different to the one we know. Which landscapes, habitats, and species thrive will be up to you.

We were able to snag an early copy of Ecos and in early October we will have a demo version of this game for you to check out! The gameplay in Ecos is simultaneous, which is great to keep every player engaged. Each round, one player reveals element tokens from the element bag, giving all players the opportunity to complete a card from their tableau and shape the continent to their own purpose.

Eternal: Chronicals of the Throne – Available Now!

From the makers of the award-winning Clank! A Deck-Building AdventureEternal: Chronicles of the Throne combines deck-building games and strategy card battlers into an intense strategic experience. Summon powerful allies to attack your opponents, or build an unbreakable defense. Will you exhibit patience and seek the power of the Eternal Throne, or forgo such a risky path? The decisions are yours in Eternal: Chronicles of the Throne!

 

This is a fun, fast-paced deck-builder that introduces new ideas and mechanics, and one we suggest!
