The New, New, New, New, New, Stuff

According to purchase order 5,887, arriving today:

Board Games

Merchants Board Game (Catalyst): Merchants focused on a theme of Old World trading in the 16th century. While the over-all theme of tall-ship trading remains unchanged, all new art has been generated, focusing the items traded towards an American market. A classic German-style resource management style of play, with rules that are read and understood in minutes, but a depth of play that allows for a lot of fun repeat play.

Warhammer Invasion LCG: Assault on Ulthuan
This deluxe expansion brings two new factions to the forefront of the war for the Old World. Assault on Ulthuan contains two core starter decks of forty cards, as well as two capital boards for the Dark Elves and High Elves. Players of the existing factions will find plenty to aid them as well; new cards for the other four factions, plus a handful of neutrals, bring a host of new strategies, tactics, and deck-building options for each of the six races in the game.

New from Last Week: Dixit 2, Dixit (restock), Cyclades, Mow, Canal Mania, Brief History of the World, Frontline D-Day, Tower of Mystery.

Classic Games: Restock of chess sets and cribbage. Large Kem card order arriving next week.

Jigsaw Puzzle: Ravensburger restock last week, including new Puzzle Stow & Go.

Role-Playing Games

Rogue Trader: Lure of the Expanse:  
You are a Rogue Trader, an explorer with a sacred mandate to venture beyond the limits of the Imperium in the name of the Emperor. Whether you live the life of an outlaw privateer, or as a scion of an ancient noble line, as a Rogue Trader you have the power and the tools to challenge all rivals for supreme control of the riches lurking in the uncharted reaches of space.

Now, you can bring the light of the Emperor to the darkest corners of the Koronus Expanse. Lure of the Expanse features three adventures set amongst the unexplored stars beyond the Imperium. Wealth and glory await those with the courage to venture into the farthest reaches of space.

Warhammer 40K: Blood Angels (Friday): Codex: Blood Angels, Blood Angels Death Company, Blood Angels Sanguinary Guard, Blood Angel Baal Predator, Lemartes, Guardian of the Lost, The Sanguinor.

One of the key things about the Blood Angels is the duality of their nature - their noble intentions and desire to defend Mankind, pitted against their fight to control the Red Thirst (a genetic curse that drives them into an insane fury) that boils within them. The sculptors have done a great job of showing this on the models themselves: the Death Company appear sombre with skulls and symbols of death adorning their armour, while the Sanguinary Guard's armour is covered in angelic wings and wreaths.
