New Game Releases for September

Posted: September 7, 2012 in Uncategorized

From the distributor Impressions, we find out about several releases that are currently winging their way towards your shelves this month.

The universe is a big place with big problems – that’s where you come in! Put on your space suit, charge your ray rifle, and flip ignition on an outer-space adventure! Imagine if the first RPG had been one of interplanetary adventure—rules-light, fast-paced, and inspired by a passion for science fiction. In X-plorers, you’re part of a group of galactic troubleshooters on the look out for the next job—whether it be salvage, search, or rescue on an alien world.

Disaster Looms!
The Earth is probably doomed, and rumors and speculation runs rampant. News headlines from across the globe stir the populace to desperation.  The race to escape Earth has begun. With the world’s nations in decline, the shareholders turn to you and your massive corporation to take advantage of this opportunity, and ensure their safe retirement. You are humanity’s last hope. Take the reins as CEO and venture out into space. Colonize profitable worlds, ensure brand loyalty among your customers, and save the human race. Disaster Looms! is a 2-4 player space exploration and colonization game, where each player takes on the role of the CEO of a massive global corporation in order to save humanity (and pad their own bank account). The game features a random, player-built map every game, a unique technology system, and gameplay designed to keep every player engaged and focused. (from Break from Reality Games)

Snapshot: 1969
Snapshot: 1969 is a hippie story telling game where you lead a single hero through a wild time. Literally anything can happen – just like in the 60?s!  This is a very simple Engle Matrix game.

After each scene the game host awards the card to the most entertaining player. Win the most scenes to win the game.

Colonial Gothic: The French & Indian War
IT WAS A DIFFERENT TIME.  A time when Washington was a militia colonel.  A time when Franklin was best known as a scientist. A time when Bostonians drank tea.  A time when the British were the good guys.  Welcome to a new era for COLONIAL GOTHIC, as the pages of history are tuned back to a time prior to the American Revolution. In THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR, players and gamemasters are presented with the tools and sources they need to run their games during this critical time of American history. (from Rogue Games)
