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:

  • Birdscaping
  • Agropolis: Seasons Expansion
  • Shadow Kingdoms of Valeria



Birdscaping is an 18-card game in which players compete to get the best and greatest number of birds to join their backyard sanctuary. Discard cards from your hand and activate cards in your tableau to make improvements to your yard features as you simultaneously attract curious birds into your tableau.


If you can’t get enough games featuring animals on your table, you won’t want to miss out on Birdscapes. You’ll be paying costs to recruit birds into one of three distinct areas in your tableau, depending on the bird type. With nice artwork and clever abilities, there’s far more than you’d expect to find in such a small package, which is always a pleasant surprise. As a bonus, it includes a solo mode to challenge you when you don’t have a friend available. Be the best birdwatcher in the yard with Birdscapes.


Agropolis: Seasons Expansion


The crops are growing, but the winds are blowing. Manage both to the best of your abilities!


Seasons adds only four cards to your experience, but they transform the game in a whole new way. While it doesn’t impact anything for the rules, it does have a guarantee that one of these will be a scoring condition at random, with the rest shuffled in. The other nuances are that when you draw a Seasons card, it MUST be the next card you play, and from that point on you have specific directions you can expand from that card based on your Seasons scoring card. If you want something easy-to-integrate that spices up the Agropolis experience, look no further than this expansion.


Shadow Kingdoms of Valeria


Humans, Elves, and Dwarves from Valeria have slowly encroached on your territories and slain your monster-kin in the name of progress. They’ve built citadels and villages over your homes and sacred spaces as they push you further into the darkness. Now is the time to rally your troops, lay waste to your oppressors, and bring forth the reign of the Shadow Kingdoms! You are a Warden of the Shadow Kingdoms, tasked with proving yourself worthy to become the next General of the Dark Army. Use the resources of the shrines to fill your army with ravenous troops and monstrous champions, then send your minions out to ambush, clash, and lay siege to the trespassers.


Move your captain around to one of several locations on your turn, triggering the respective action. You’ll be recruiting dice, getting them manipulated to the sides you need, hiring generals, forming battle plans, and then leading them all into glorious battle for points and chaining rewards. If you like games that are mechanically simple to learn but offer tons of replay value through a variety of strategies, then this one is a game you won’t want to miss. Whether you are a Valeria veteran, or a newcomer to the line of games in this universe, there’s a lot of great stuff for you to explore and enjoy in this game.

Game of the Week: Roll-Z

Will you survive? Roll-Z is a Solo Survival Time Challenge, in Print and Play format, but with colorfull high definition PDF files, and that's not all!

If you manage to repair the old Chevy (by putting together the 5 necessary pieces) before time runs out, you have won, but if your barricade collapses or you run out of time, you will became another brainless wobblers.
