CQ PLANNING NEW YEAR’S EVE BASH

While we haven’t announced the details yet and we have a few things to iron out, one thing we know for sure is that a New Year’s Eve Bash WILL BE HAPPENING here at Comic Quest this year! That’s right! You and your family (kiddos included) can join us for a night of fun and games as well all bid adieu to 2016 and welome 2017 together!

Keep an eye on our Facebook Events page for all the details, because that’s where we will post them first and it is sure to be a great time for all of you looking for something fun to do that includes all of your friends and family!

LOVE IELLO MONSTER GAMES?
Well, more are on their way in 2017!

Iello is really ready for the new year with a handful of new products, so let’s take a quick look at the three upcoming releases scheduled for the first quarter of 2017.

First up is a small addition to the King of Tokyo and King of New York family – the first in a line of Monster Packs that are planned for the popular pair featuring the cult favorite, Cthulhu. These monster packs will come with a standee, player board, and evolution cards for both Tokyo and New York. Cthulhu also comes with several cultist tokens and a double-sided temple presumably used in conjunction with his unique set of evolution cards.

Next is a fast and fun game for 2 to 6 players called The Legend of the Wendigo. Players take the roles of scouts at a campground, who’ve heard a tale of the Wendigo who now lurks among them. It sounds very similar to Werewolf with each player receiving a hidden role token, one of which is the Wendigo who can “steal” (or most likely, eliminate from play) one other scout at night-time. There’s a sand-timer included, and a 10-minute play time on the box which both suggests this plays like a speed version of Werewolf more focus on memory while not trying to be as condensed as the instantly classic One Night series. It’ll be interesting to see what other twists in the rules will separate this game from the rest as we learn more about it.

Last is a new small-box card game that takes us back to the time of Ancient Egypt. Pyramids is about building the eponymous wonders by collecting the best materials and organizing them for points. As described on the product page,

 “Your necropolis, a place of eternal sleep, luxury, and glory, will be made up of Pyramids, Obelisks, and Tombs. Select the best combination of stones in the quarry, optimize their layout, and make your necropolis the most famous in all of Egypt!”

Watch for these awesome games to hit the shelves here at Comic Quest sometime in Q1 2017!


JUST IN!

Harry Potter: The Deck Building Game
harry-potter
Publisher: USAopoly
# of Players: 2-4
Age: 11+
Playing Time: 30 – 60 minutes
The forces of evil are threatening to overrun Hogwarts castle in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, a cooperative deck-building game, and it’s up to four students to ensure the safety of the school by defeating villains and consolidating their defenses. In the game, players take on the role of a Hogwarts student: Harry, Ron, Hermione or Neville, each with their own personal deck of cards that’s used to acquire resources.
By gaining influence, players add more cards to their deck in the form of iconic characters, spells, and magical items. Other cards allow them to regain health or fight against villains, keeping them from gaining power. The villains set back players with their attacks and Dark Arts. Only by working together will players be able to defeat all of the villains, securing the castle from the forces of evil.

The Crow: Fire it Up!
