Board Game: Ashes Reborn: Rise of the Phoenixborn
• Isaac Vega's Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn from Plaid Hat Games is a thing of beauty, and it was one of a handful of titles that had people salivating in anticipation prior to Gen Con 2015. How does the game play? Vega visited the BGG booth to give us (and you) and overview.

Board Game: WWE Superstar Showdown
• Gale Force Nine has made a name for itself with licensed game releases that live up to the spirit of the license, and its latest offering along these lines is WWE Superstar Showdown, with Matt Maggitti almost yelling himself hoarse as the ringside announcer in this presentation of the gameplay.

Board Game: Heroes Wanted: The Stuff of Legend
Heroes Wanted: The Stuff of Legend from designers Chance and Little and publisher Action Phase Games adds more of what you found in the base game — two-part adjectival & noun hero and villain cards that come together in strange ways — as well as new scenarios in which to start the action.

Board Game: Ninja Camp
• Adam E. Daulton's Ninja Camp from Action Phase Games brings together gameplay reminiscent of Hey, That's My Fish! with animal karate masters that pick up movement cards which determine which actions they can possibly perform on future turns.

Board Game: Helionox: The Last Sunset
Helionox: The Last Sunset from designer Taran Lewis Kratz of Zeroic Games was something I missed seeing on Kickstarter, but man, does this game have eye-catching graphic design!
