Look at what we've been adding to our gaming shelves!

Hex Hex by Smirk & Dagger Games



Quote from: smirkanddagger.com
HEX•HEX™ is a fast-playing, stand-alone card game for 3-6 people. Players hurl Hex after Hex around the table, constantly redirecting, deflecting and altering the Hex’s power until finally someone runs out of options and becomes HEXED.

In the end, the winner alone will command enough Voice to control the group and lay down the law... creating a new rule for the next game.

The new base game, Hex•Hex 1.5, has been upgraded with a more durable box (which now allows for proper storage of all the game components), glass bead scoring tokens, even more Hex tokens, a marker to track who went first --AND two ALL NEW cards that better balance gameplay, LEVEL and THE FORGOTTEN.

Okay, that's what it says on the box... what's it really like?
Fast and fun. This game is all about non-stop player interaction. Every card you play is an attack or a back-stabbing tactic. A good amount of the rules are right on the cards so there's a small learning curve (one game ought to do it). After that, it is pretty simple to play. Heck, even your non-gamer friends will enjoy it. A single hand lasts from 3-5 minutes. A game from 20-30 minutes. But more often than not, groups play sessions running 3-5 games long as players create new and different ways to be ‘mean’ to each other. (check our list of favorites) It's no strategy game. But if you're looking for a great 'beer & pretzels' style game with a fun mean-streak. This is it.

Gloom by Atlas Games



Quote from: atlasgames.com
Gloom:
The Game of Inauspicious Incidents
and Grave Consequences

The world of Gloom is a sad and benighted place. The sky is gray, the tea is cold, and a new tragedy lies around every corner. Debt, disease, heartache, and packs of rabid flesh-eating mice -- just when it seems like things can't get any worse, they do. But some say that one's reward in the afterlife is based on the misery endured in life. If so, there may yet be hope -- if not in this world, then in the peace that lies beyond.

In the Gloom card game, you assume control of the fate of an eccentric family of misfits and misanthropes. The goal of the game is sad, but simple: you want your characters to suffer the greatest tragedies possible before passing on to the well-deserved respite of death. You'll play horrible mishaps like Pursued by Poodles or Mocked by Midgets on your own characters to lower their Self-Worth scores, while trying to cheer your opponents' characters with marriages and other happy occasions that pile on positive points. The player with the lowest total Family Value wins.

Printed on transparent plastic cards, Gloom features an innovative design by noted RPG author Keith Baker. Multiple modifier cards can be played on top of the same character card; since the cards are transparent, elements from previously played modifier cards either show through or are obscured by those played above them. You'll immediately and easily know the worth of every character, no matter how many modifiers they have. You've got to see (through) this game to believe it!

For 2 to 4 players.

Lunch Money by Atlas Games



Quote from: atlasgames.com
Lunch Money

It's a lot like a real fight -- only without all that slippery blood.

Lunch Money is an exciting, fast-paced, multi-player card game that combines dark, psychological images with the raw dynamics of a merciless street fight. One set is a complete game that supports 2-4 players. Additional sets may be combined to accomodate even more players!

Zombie Fluxx by Looney Labs



Quote from: wunderland.com
Zombie Fluxx takes the award-winning card game Fluxx and cranks up the fun with a Zombie uprising.

The Zombies arrive in the form of a new type of card, called the Creeper, which hangs around in front of you, preventing you from winning.

The good news is, the Keepers include a Shotgun and a Chainsaw and various other things you can use as weapons against the Zombies. Plus you've got Sandwiches and Coffee and a couple of Friends to help you win.

The bad news is, if your Friends become Zombies, you'll have to destroy them.

Welcome to the dark side of Fluxx, the card game of ever-changing rules!


and more!
