Welcome to SCIU #60, for the weeks of May 4th – May 17th.
This week the following new titles were announced:
Ryu – The ancient dragon of legend, Ryu, is about to awaken and the players must now compete to construct their own statue to honour him. To do this they will need to explore the nine islands to find remains of other dragons for the statue. The game is designed for 2-5 players (13+) and plays in around 45mins.
D&D Rage of Demons – WotC has announced that the next storyline will be Rage of Demons. Players will need to descend to the Underdark, team up with the iconic drow Drizzt Do’Urden, and prevent the demon horde before it reaches the surface world. The first book, Out of the Abyss, is scheduled for release on September 15th and will include information on the races of the Underdark, as well as settlements of mind-flayers, duergar, and derro to name a few.
Firefly: The Game – Two additional ships have been announced by Gale Force Nine for their hit Firefly game. The first is the Esmeralda, a dedicated transport, designed and equipped to carry passengers in luxury. While the Jetwash is a large cargo hauler, equipped for speed and stealth.
Don’t Turn Your Back – Welcome to the Mad City. A place where players will need to try survive by extracting dreams and bartering them with the “Nightmares” for favours. This deck building game by Eric B. Vogel takes place in the same setting as Evil Hat Productions Don’t Rest Your Head RPG.
