Wildlands
Four-player core set. Wildlands
By Martin Wallace
Illustrated by Alyn Spiller, Yann Tisseron

 

Players: 2-4

Ages: 14+

 Playing Time: 30-60 minutes

Contents: 20 Unique Miniatures, 20 Character Cards, 120 Action Cards, 42 Battlefield Cards, Double-Sided Playing Board, Counters & Tokens.

The great Darkness has fallen, and the Empire with it. The arcane crystals which once powered entire cities were shattered, and the darkness was destroyed by the magics unleashed. All that remains are the lawless ruins known as the Wildlands, and the shards of the crystals that have been strewn across them. Now a few souls, the brave and the desperate, seek the shards to harness their power for their own ends.

Take control of one of four factions, from the spell-slinging Mages’ Guild or the nimble Gnomads to the versatile Lawbringers or the hard-hitting Pit Fighters. Each brings their own playstyle, with unique decks of action cards determining their abilities on the battlefield, so plan your tactics carefully. Dash through the ruins to grab the crystals you so desperately desire or focus your efforts on taking out the opposition – but take care, danger may be lurking in the darkness… In the Wildlands, opportunity awaits… if you fight for it.

Cryptid
By Hal Duncan, Ruth Veevers
Illustrated by Kwanchai Moriya

 

Number of players: 3-5

Ages: 10+

Time: 30-50 minutes

Components: 5 player booklets, 6 board pieces, 60 cards, tokens & counters.

You’ve studied the footage, connected the dots, and gathered what meagre evidence you could. You’re close – soon the whole world will know the truth behind the Cryptid. A group of like-minded cryptozoologists have come together to finally uncover the elusive creature, but the glory of discovery is too rich to share. Without giving away some of what you know you will never succeed in locating the beast, but reveal too much and your name will be long forgotten!

Cryptid is a unique deduction game of honest misdirection in which players must try to uncover information about their opponent’s clues while throwing them off the scent of their own. Each player holds one piece of evidence to help them find the creature, and on their turn they can try to gain more information from their opponents. Be warned – give too much away and your opponents might beat you to the mysterious animal and claim the glory for themselves! The game includes a modular board, five clue books, and a deck of setup cards with hundreds of possible setups across two difficulty levels. It is also supported by an entirely optional digital companion, allowing for faster game setup and a near-infinite range of puzzles.

Wildlands: The Unquiet Dead
By Martin Wallace
Illustrated by Yann Tisseron

Number of players: 2-4

Ages: 14+

Playing time: 30-60 minutes

Components: 6 unique miniatures, 30+ cards

Across the Wildlands the word is spreading – the dead are rising, swords in hand. Drawn to the life-giving power of the crystal shards, a gang of undead nightmares have taken to the battlefield. This ghoulish team can replace one of the existing factions, with the unique mechanic of shared activation offering an aggressive new playstyle, or they can be played using the new ‘Encounter’ rules as monstrosities that can be controlled by any player, flooding the board as the battle rages. Requires a copy of Wildlands to play.

Escape from Colditz By Brian Degas, Pat Reid  

Illustrated by Peter Dennis 

Colditz Castle – World War II. An impregnable fortress. An inescapable prison. Until now. Designed by Major Pat Reid, one of only a handful of prisoners-of-war to escape Colditz Castle, and screenwriter Brian Degas, Escape From Colditz is the iconic game of careful planning and nerves of steel. Become Allied escape officers – assemble your equipment, plot your escape routes, and coordinate your efforts to avoid the guards. Become the German security officer – maintain control through guile, ruthlessness, and careful observation despite limited numbers.

This deluxe edition of the classic game for 2 to 6 players includes both original and updated rules, new hand-painted artwork, an oversized board, 56 wooden playing pieces, 100 fully illustrated cards, a 32-page history book, and unique replicas of artefacts from the prison. Seventy-five years ago, Major Reid braved barbed wire, searchlights, and armed guards to Escape from Colditz. Now it’s your turn to do the same.
