Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun Is Getting a New Expansion Titled Time of Seth

This news article was first published on Table for ONE
Board Game: Tekhenu: Time of Seth


Publisher Board & Dice have announced Time of Seth, an upcoming expansion to the Egyptian themed board game Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun designed by authors Daniele Tascini and Dávid Turczi.

“With the power and splendor of Egypt increasing, its influence now reaches far beyond its borders. Seth, the god of conflict, demands that you subdue Canaan, and wage war on the mighty Hittite Empire. Your soldiers are to march on any land that dares defy you or pose a threat to your kingdom. It is the time to muster your armies, gather your priests, claim mighty artifacts and secure the favor of a powerful cult to pave your way into even greater victories.

Tekhenu: Time of Seth adds new layers of interaction and new options to Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun. A new board opens up options of conquering neighboring lands to receive in-game benefits, as well as new scoring opportunities. New dice allow for mustering Soldiers and gathering priests. However, conquest comes with a price, as with more battles fought, balancing one's deeds becomes more complicated than before.

Apart from soldiers needed to take control of lands beyond the borders of Egypt, players also gather priests that allow them to take control of artifacts. These new cards offer new and nuanced ways of planning turns, combining strategic plays and scoring victory points.

The expansion also contains advanced rules specifically designed to enhance the 2–player experience.”
- description by the publisher

At the time of writing, the Tekhenu: Time of Seth expansion is scheduled for an autumn retail release.

Publisher Mighty Boards Announces Excavation Earth Expansion “It Belongs in a Museum!”

This news article was first published on Table for ONE
Board Game: Excavation Earth: It Belongs in a Museum!


Much to the approval of Dr. Henry Jones Jr., publisher Mighty Boards have announced “It Belongs in a Museum!” an upcoming expansion to the 1 - 4 player game Excavation Earth designed by author Dávid Turczi. Featuring illustrations by talented artist Philipp Kruse, this latest expansion to the game of celestial market manipulation and artifact scavenging introduces several new layers to the base game including a new sideboard and alien races.

“The alien races have opened up an interstellar museum in the earth’s orbit. It Belongs in a Museum opens up the exhibit action, which allows players to send select artifacts they excavate to the museum, rather than selling them off at markets. This opens up new ways of interacting and competing with other players, along with a variety of new ways of scoring.

Mysterious artefacts are a new type of artefact added to the game. Mysterious artefacts can only be excavated from new locations that are added to the map. Send these mysterious artifacts to the mothership for analysis and you will be rewarded with the all new technology cards. These grant you new abilities that you can use during the game, along with extra points!

The Zu clones are also in on the action! They are rushing to excavate mysterious artifacts and populate the museum with their finds as much as you are. The solo game integrates the modules in the new expansion, giving you new strategies to explore and challenges to overcome.”
- description by the publisher

The Excavation Earth: It Belongs in a Museum! expansion is launching on Kickstarter August 3rd.

Publisher Dire Wolf Announces the Dune: Imperium - Rise of Ix Expansion

This news article was first published on Table for ONE
Board Game: Dune: Imperium – Rise of Ix


During this year’s Dice Tower Summer Spectacular, publisher Dire Wolf unveiled Rise of Ix; an upcoming expansion to the critically acclaimed Dune: Imperium designed by author Paul Dennen. The Rise of Ix expansion is designed for 1 - 4 players and features no less than three new Houses that enter the fray for dominance over the sandy dunes of Arrakis including House Ecaz and Vernius as described by the publisher:

“Rise of Ix will focus on the technocratic society of Ix, and adds new Imperium, Intrigue, and Conflict cards to the game. Rise of Ix will also add brand new mechanics to Dune: Imperium, including dreadnoughts and Ixian Technology tiles. Dreadnoughts are mighty war machines that enter combat like troops, but pack even more firepower, and are indestructible! Dreadnoughts can also temporarily take control of locations on Arrakis. These powerful units will cost players Solari to construct, so decisions on how to prioritize spending are key. Ixian Technology tiles can be acquired for spice, and unlike cards, do not shuffle into players decks. The tiles are instead placed directly in front of a player, where they provide a permanent upgrade to abilities.”

Board Game: Dune: Imperium – Rise of Ix


At the time of writing, Dune: Imperium - Rise of Ix is scheduled for a retail release during the Christmas season of 2021.

Take a Stroll Through Winterhaven Woods From Publisher Featherstone Games

This news article was first published on table for ONE
Board Game: Winterhaven Woods


Author and illustrator Joel Bodkin is currently running a Kickstarter campaign through the publishing imprint of Featherstone Games for Winterhaven Woods, a card drafting and set collection game designed for 1 – 6 players.

“In Winterhaven Woods, players are preparing the animals of the forest to endure the long winter months. They do so by planting trees to create woods, populating their woods with creatures, and using their predators to hunt creatures left exposed in player's meadows. Players may also use steal cards to swipe cards from their opponent's woods & meadow, however utilizing too many incurs a penalty.

Each round, players will draft cards, then plant & populate their woods, building it up over the course of the game. Player's may also collect predators in their meadow to hunt with, taking advantage of creatures not able to be populated by other players.

After three rounds players total their scores, bonuses and penalties, and the player with the most points wins!”

Return to the Land of Arzium In Now or Never From Publisher Red Raven Games

This news article was first published on table for ONE
Board Game: Now or Never


Red Raven Games has announced Now or Never, the third entry to what the publisher describes as “the Arzium storybook series” following Above and Below and Near and Far. Designed and illustrated by Ryan Laukat, Now or Never is a 1 - 4 player action drafting and hand management game where players are competing to rebuild their ancestral village after mysterious crystal meteorites descend upon the land.

"Far to the south of The Last Ruin lies a cliffside village called The Monument. For generations, it protected an ancient shrine until the day a crystal meteorite descended. The meteor's denizens slowly crept out into the world—bizarre monstrosities from nightmare, attacking all in their path. As they spread across the land, there was no intelligent malice nor grand invasion strategy; the creatures acted like a fungus—spreading into new territory sporadically. After many fruitless attempts to expel the monsters, the people of The Monument fled as their village crumbled, exiled to distant lands, resigned to a nomadic existence.

Twenty years later, there are rumors that the bizarre monsters are growing weak. They’re slower, less impervious to attack, some undergoing a gradual petrification until they crumble to dust. Is it the atmosphere? Are they dying of old age? Do they suffer from a strange disease? No one is certain, but as the news spreads, various factions set their eyes on the vacant, ruined village of The Monument. The original villagers, now refugees, are desperate to return and rebuild. But they must do it quickly, before someone else claims their home. This is their chance. It’s now or never.

Now or Never is a competitive strategy game that allows you to:

Choose one of four asymmetrical characters to play.

Rebuild the village so that returning villagers have a place to live. You must carefully choose what and where to build to maintain an advantage, earning the biggest rewards for long-term planning.

Interact with other players by hiring their specialists to perform special actions.

Combat dangerous creatures to rescue villagers.

Explore a fantasy landscape filled with bizarre places, technology, and peoples.

Now or Never includes two modes of play: standard and story. When playing in story mode, you read from a storybook when you explore, making choices and learning more about the characters and the world. Each character has their own set of stories, unique to the locations they explore and diverse in plot, perspective, and motive, allowing you to choose what direction your own story will take.

Journey to The Monument and help rebuild your ancient home!"
- description by the publisher

Now or Never is currently available for pre-order, with an estimated shipping date of the fourth quarter of 2021.

Lockup: A Roll Player Tale Is Getting Its First Expansion Titled Breakout

This news article was first published on table for ONE
Board Game: Lockup: Breakout


Lockup: A Roll Player Tale, the 1- 5 player game about becoming the most notorious gang within the Kulbak prison author Stanislav Kordonskiy , is getting its first proper expansion appropriately titled Breakout which is currently live on Kickstarter.

“Everyone in Kulbak has heard rumor of secret passages that run beneath the prison. Ages ago, the catacombs carved into these mountains were used to house fallen heroes. Queen Gimnax built a prison over this sacred site during the Great War, enclosing those ghosts and their treasure behind its walls. Some say the catacombs lead to the tomb of Khathandor, greatest of the Dragul warriors. Others swear that the real treasure to be found in the tunnels beneath Kulbak is a crack in the prison’s outer wall. To find the truth, you’ll have to send your seeker to explore the crumbling catacombs by lantern light.

New opportunities await you above ground, too, as you influence the legendary characters who inhabit the prison. Strike a deal with Warden Mercy. Make a truce with Masik and his Starlit Door cultists. Commune with the spirit of Khathandor. Gain their favor while you probe the hidden history of Kulbak in search of gold and freedom.

In Lockup: Breakout, players can earn reputation stars in new ways by sending their seekers to explore the catacombs beneath the prison and by dedicating crew to influence the legendary inhabitants of Kulbak. Gain the most reputation stars over six rounds by crafting items, recruiting goons, influencing legends, and exploring the catacombs — all while avoiding the suspicion of the guards.

As in the core game, the player with the most reputation stars wins!”

Command Legendary Angels Against Demonic Foes in Deliverance From Publisher Lowen Games

This news article was first published on table for ONE
Board Game: Deliverance


“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”

Deliverance is an upcoming dungeon crawler for 1 - 4 players from debut designer Andrew Lowen and publisher Lowen Games. For centuries the war for humanity has ravaged between the angelic forces of God and the demon spawn brought upon this world by the fallen prince of darkness. Having scoured the earth you have finally managed to track down their stronghold, nestled in the quiet rural town of Fallbrook.

“A strange darkness sits heavy upon the town, and the quiet cry for deliverance is heard among the humans. You tighten your grip on your blade and come up with a plan, for the Father of Lies is cunning, and this town is too insignificant… what conspiracy lay hidden here?

Choose your hero and act as the Hand of God against the Forces of Darkness, controlled by the game itself. Blessed with stewardship over Heavenly relics and holy powers, unleash your God-given gifts to slay demonic foes, cast down the Darkness, and deliver the saints.

The demons act according to their own unique skill tree, and will work in concert with the Darkness that threatens the town to slay you at all costs. The game offers incredible variety, as the demons themselves may also gain Talents that will change their behavior and challenge you in new ways as you progress in skill level in single battle skirmishes or through the game’s campaign!”
