It's New Game Friday! David Wiley (Cardboard Clash) is here to tell us about the new games.
Here’s what is new this week:
- Dungeon Pages
- Dungeon Pages Year-Long Adventure
- Spaceshipped: Lockdown
Greetings young page, welcome to your first quest. We are thrilled to have someone of your prowess joining the Elder ranks. The Light knows, we need all the help we can get against these creatures of darkness.
Explore a series of dungeons using the numerical values from dice rolls as you progress to gather treasure, defeat monsters, disarm traps, and gain experience. Complete enough dungeons and you’ll get to face down the boss dungeon. If you like thinky, tactical decisions on how to best utilize dice rolls, you won’t want to pass up the chance to explore through Dungeon Pages. This little game is bound to offer plenty of replay value, as you can not only choose how much of each dungeon to explore but also how to manage what the dice are giving you and whether it is better to try for the extra XP boost or to delve deeper within a single dungeon for more rewards.
Dungeon Pages Year-Long Adventure
If Dungeon Pages sounds like a great deal, then you won’t want to overlook this bundle of annual pleasure. Every Friday a new hero and dungeon combo will be sent your way if you pick this up, giving you a total of 52 adventures to explore in 2023. It’s like having Christmas every week to celebrate the arrival of the weekend, and with the ability to mix-and-match heroes with dungeons, by the end of the year you’ll have an incredible number of combinations to explore for many, many years to come.
In an attempt to weed out the criminal elements from Dynasty worlds, the military set up checkpoints throughout the sector. This makes things harder for smugglers, but lucrative for the traders who can get past these troops.
Spaceshipped is an absolute blast of a solo game, with crunchy decisions stemming from the multi-purpose cards cycling through the play area as they flip/rotate gradually. This expansion adds 6 new cards to mix into your experience, adding some added variety to the game. There’s contraband items, which you can only pick up if you already have a matching non-contraband version of that same item. And the Saboteur changes the dynamic of the game even more, stealing those precious crystals and, if he takes too many, you’ve discovered a brand new way to lose the game.https://www.pnparcade.com/collections/new-games
Game of the Week: Beach Life on sale for $3!
While building a giant sandcastle you notice that you are sharing the beach with a variety of sea-dwellers. You discard your bucket and spade to give the creatures a helping hand.
If you like mini games, the Beach Life has you covered. There are five different ones to play over the course of a game of Beach Life, each featuring a different sea animal. If you ever wanted to tickle a starfish (who hasn’t?) then this game is perfect for you. I also appreciate that three dice get rolled each round, and you choose two of them to use (and can sometimes use all three!) to determine the game you play and what you’ll use to mark off. This game is fun, fast, and easy to get played.
