Board Game: Clank!: A Deck-Building Adventure
• After recently finishing Clank! Legacy and being a fan of all things Clank!, I think it's great to see that Renegade Games released Evan Lorentz's Clank! Adventuring Party, an expansion that adds asymmetrical starting decks and allows up to six players to get their burgle on in Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure, while also being compatible with a completed copy of Clank! Legacy.

What will you find in the box?
The thieves' guild is recruiting! Clank! Adventuring Party expands your merry band to include up to six players in your dungeon run!

Board Game: Clank!: Adventuring Party

Want a new thieving identity? Shuffle up as one of six unique characters, each with their own asymmetrical starting deck and special abilities:

• Lead trusty companions as the Dwarf Agnet
• Build wonderous collections as the Elf D'allan
• Smash hordes of enemies as the Orc Garignar
• Sling arcane spells as the mage Lenara
• Amass primate power as the MonkeyBot Prime
• Or stir up a paw full of trouble as the devious cat Whiskers

But beware: the ravenous hydra Hexavultus won't give up his treasures easily...

Board Game: Aeon's End: The New Age
Indie Boards & Cards launched a Kickstarter campaign in February 2020 for the newest standalone expansion in the magical Aeon's End series, Aeon's End: Outcasts, designed by Sydney Engelstein, Nick Little, and Kevin Riley, and targeted for retail release in late October 2020.

As a follow-up to its predecessor, Aeon's End: The New Age, Aeon's End: Outcasts continues the epic narrative and introduces new mages, nemesis, gems, relics, and spells that are fully compatible with all existing Aeon's End content. In more detail from the publisher:
Aeon's End: Outcasts continues the Expedition system that was introduced in Aeon's End: New Age, which allows players to replay all of the content they own in a short campaign format. After each game, players receive new treasures and player cards that allow them to become more powerful. However, the nemeses that players will face grow stronger and stronger with each battle.

Board Game: Aeon's End: Outcasts

Aeon's End: Outcasts follows Z'hana, an original Aeon's End breach mage who has turned her back on New Gravehold, and Xaxos, who was exiled after betraying his fellow mages. Xaxos comes to Z'hana with a quest to find a mythical legend, the Fountain of Souls, which can supposedly bring back mages who have fallen in battle.

While in the Void, the Gravehold life dial is replaced with Xaxos himself, who needs to be protected if you're going to stay safe from the corrupting atmosphere of the Void. Unlike Gravehold, Xaxos is a mage in his own right and can help the players out with powerful abilities.

In addition to the new mode, more unique breaches, more thought-provoking cards, more mage-specific tokens, and more entirely brand new mechanisms, Aeon's End: Outcasts comes with eight fresh mages that each bring their own playstyle to the table.

Board Game: Dale of Merchants 2
• In other deck-building news, Dale of Merchants 3 is the newest standalone game in the Dale of Merchants family from designer Sami Laakso and his publishing company Snowdale Design, and the game is currently available for pre-order if you missed the Kickstarter campaign from May 2020.

Here's a brief description of what you can expect in Dale of Merchants 3:
It is an age of great discoveries. New and wonderful items find their ways into the hands of the greatest merchants, and if there ever is a place those traders love, it is the town of Dale. There's an extraordinary guild in the Dale founded by the greatest merchants. The tricky part is getting the membership since one must win the annual trading competition to be invited to the guild.

Notable animalfolk merchants from all over the world have gathered in the town to take part in the event. Everyone has only one goal in mind — to be celebrated as the winner and the newest member of the legendary guild.

Board Game: Dale of Merchants 3

In Dale of Merchants — a series of deck building games set in Daimyria, a world of animalfolks — players take the roles of those participating merchants learning new techniques, trading goods, and managing their stock. The player who first manages to complete their astounding merchant stall wins the game and gets access to the guild!

Dale of Merchants 3 is a standalone game that introduces six new animalfolk decks and that can be played by itself and combined with other games from the Dale of Merchants series.
