New Games for Nov 5, 2021 - Doom Song of the Poet's Mothership

Jason Tagmire

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:

        • Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes
        • Mothership: Tabletop Combat
        • Skulls of Sedlec: Poets


        Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes


        Norindaal, the world of Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes, was created by thirty-three gods as their playground. The gods would move through Norindaal via the Ley Gates, shortcuts they created to pass quickly from one continent to the other. Their location is hidden from most mortals, except for some fey creatures and powerful spellcasters. Many wars have been fought over the access to known Ley Gates.


        If you like miniatures gaming, you won’t want to miss this one. It doesn’t matter the figures used, so there’s no barrier to entry on that front. With fun, fast rules and no bookkeeping to keep tabs on, the game’s system is designed to help you experience the game and run through several short skirmishes to make a campaign. So if you always wished for a story to pair with your skirmish battles on the table, this one is bound to deliver for you in a fun setting as you watch your warband grow and develop over time. 


        Mothership: Tabletop Combat

        Mothership combines miniatures, strategy and dice combat games into an easy to pick up experience that everyone can enjoy. Control a fleet of ships and charge through the galaxy, capturing planets, building defences and amassing powerful technologies.

        Play Deathmatch Mode in a gripping, last-man standing fight for power or play the fast and frantic Victory Point Mode. With game play that’s built from the ground up to eliminate end-game drag, you’ll find Mothership to be light-hearted, engaging and thrilling from start to finish.


        Skulls of Sedlec: Poets Expansion

        Poets is a 6-card expansion that shuffles into the game, adds the ability to play with a 4th player and is fully compatible with the solo expansion, Skulls of Sedlec: Monstrance, as well.

        The base game of Skulls of Sedlec has an interesting skull: the Romantics, who will get points for being paired with another Romantic skull. This can, of course, be a challenge to pull off successfully. Never fear, the Poets expansion will help balance that risk-reward of trying to fulfill a Romantic. Put that Shakespearian skull next to a Romantic who DOESN’T score and you’ll net 4 points. That’s not a bad consolation prize, if you ask me. And with the ease of integration into the base game, this should be an auto-include into your Skulls of Sedlec game.

        Game of the Week: Doom Machine


        Uncover and destroy The Doom Core before you succumb to total extinction.

        If you like rolling and allocating dice, this will present plenty of fascinating decisions on how to use the 5-10 dice you’ll roll each turn. Dice can be used to manipulate other dice, to prevent incoming damage, or used in sets of 1-3 to deal damage to machine parts as you try to uncover the Doom Core and destroy it before it destroys you.
