A Fictional Game Becomes Reality: A Review of ‘Romance of the Nine Empires 15th Anniversary Edition’

For a game which was designed almost as a gag – included as an incentive to fund Zombie Orpheus’ Gamers: Hands of Fate – there’s a hell of a lot to really like with R9E. Many of the mechanics which make CCGs so popular are here so you get that same addictive gameplay without the seemingly never ending expense of purchasing more and more cards.

Love Letter: Legend of the Five Rings to Appear in February

Our pals at AEG are taking their hit introductory card game Love Letter and giving it the Legend of the Five Rings treatment. Themed to coincide with the popular collectible card game, Love Letter: Legend of the Five Rings will feature art by Andrew Hepworth.

The new edition will include 16 game cards, 4 reference cards, 13 tokens of affection, and a green velvet bag emblazoned with Love Letter and L5R Rings in gold. The gameplay will remain the same and, with an MSRP of $10.99, the title will continue to be a steal.

Rockin’ on Rails: A Review of ‘Trains’

I will mention if you’re a fan of Dominion then Trains is a must buy as it does share some things in common with that popular deckbuilder. If you’re like me and feel Dominion is simply an alright game, I think Trains is still a extremely fun since it completely avoids my biggest issue of “vacuum gaming” while providing good, challenging play. If you really can’t stand Dominion (or any other deckbuilder) you might still even want to give Trains a try because its not the same old same old, but take my opinion for what it’s worth; if the genre isn’t your bag it’s just not your bag.

The Obligatory Cthulhu Expansion Coming for Smash Up

This was one I hoped would be coming from AEG for Smash Up and sure enough we now have word The Obligatory Cthulhu Expansion will be available in September. Rats! I was keeping my fingers crossed we’d see this at Gen Con! Regardless, four new Lovecraft inspired memes will be part of your shuffle building arsenal to drive your opponents mad. The MSRP for The Obligatory Cthulhu Expansion is $19.99.

From AEG:

AEG Announces a New English Edition of Trains

Our pal Todd Rowland, of AEG, has sent word of a summer release for an English language edition of Hisashi Hayashi’s Trains. The game was available in very limited numbers at last year’s Essen and now the title will be made available to a much larger audience! Two to four players take part in this new deck building game as they look to control the most powerful railroad in all Japan.

I’ll guess we should see the release at this year’s Gen Con but there’s no guessing with the price tag, as the MSRP will be $49.99.

From AEG:

The railways of today are amazing things and bullet trains, freight trains and more keep entire countries [...]

Sneak Peek of Smash Up: Awesome Level 9000 from AEG

Coming in March is the follow up to last Summer’s hit AEG release Smash Up. The Smash Up: Awesomeness Level 9000 expansion features four new factions to add to the shuffle building action. The expansion features 4 all-new distinct factions that you can mix and match to defeat your opponents. Try them with the Core Set to create exponential new combinations!

Killer Plants – Better deal with these guy fast, leave them alone and they’ll grow all over the place… like weeds! *rimshot*

Ghosts – Unlike just about every card game in history, Ghosts benefit from having less cards in your hand. Can you be immaterial?

Steampunks – Can’t leave a good base alone, the [...]

Unboxing AEG’s Love Letter (TGG Video)

Let’s take a look  at the fourth game in the City State of Tempest line from AEG. Love Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck, for 2-4 players. Get your love letter into Princess Annette’s hands while keeping other players’ letters away. Powerful cards lead to early gains, but make you a target. Rely on weaker cards for too long and your letter may be tossed in the fire!
