Tabletop Games (New and Returning) at Modern Myths
Hey, Modern Myths RPG guru Jim here! I’ll be sharing my highlights of our new arrivals on the gaming front. We don’t necessarily get a lot of new releases every single week of the year, so check back here every couple of weeks for the latest news.
If you don’t see me call out something you were hoping to see, or, better yet, you’d like us to set something aside for you to pick up when you can make it in, drop us a line in Northampton or Mamaroneck! If we didn’t get it in, we’ll be happy to order it for you.
Scroll down for previous picks, and check out the bottom of the page for our regular perks and special offers.
It’s the week of Friday, May 17th, and it’s been a couple of weeks since we updated!
Magic the Gathering: Dragon’s Maze is the reason why! As usual, most of the other game companies are wary about getting their own releases swallowed by the excitement of new Magic release, and these last couple of week shave been no exception. This set finishes up the Return to Ravnica block and follows Gatecrash.
Dragon’s Maze: Booster pack $3.99, Fat Pack $39.99, Intro Deck $14.99
We also have single cards in both locations, and also a very limited quantity of the Pre-Release Sealed Decks ($25.00) while supplies last!
Duel Decks! We just got back in a VERY limited qty of the Sorin vs. Tibalt Duel Decks, featuring reprints of long O/P cards including the two notorious Planeswalkers. Supply is VERY limited, and these are only available while they last.
Duel Deck (2 60-card constructed decks) $19.99
Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition Deluxe Reprints: ‘The Old School Renaissance’ craze continues at WotC as the next in their line of deluxe classic D&D reprints arrive: THACO Lives!
Player’s Handbook, Dungeon Master’s Guide, Monstrous Manual (all in HC) $49.95 each
Teen Titans HeroClix: DC’s favorite angst-filled teen heroes are ready to duke it out in the latest expansion to WizKids’ superhero battle game! Available in both single blind packs and traditional ‘booster bricks’.
Booster Pack (5 figures): $16.99, Single Mini Blind Pack: $2.99
Finally, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the tragic cancellation of the Marvel Heroic RPG. It was a great game, and it’s a shame that MWP couldn’t retain the license, they had some great plans for it. Some of you may know that we’re kind of champions for the game here at Modern Myths, so rest assured: we managed to get our hands on some copies of the wonderful core rulebook before they disappeared from distribution. If you ever wanted to check the game out, stop by either store and check it out while we still have them! Don’t miss out on the chance to play the best RPG of 2012, possibly of the decade so far.
Marvel Heroic RPG Basic Edition: $19.99
It’s Friday, April 26th. Here’s the new games of note this week:
SHADOWFIST! The card game of furious martial arts combat returns! It’s no longer collectible, but still expandable with faction decks. A favorite of Jim’s!
4-player Starter $49.99 (Boxed game)
Back for Seconds (Jammers & Monarchs Faction Deck) $19.99 (Tuck Box)
Reloaded (50-card ‘Shadowpack’ expansion) $11.99 (Tuck Box)
Settlers of Catan: Explorers & Pirates: A full-sized expansion for Catan that adds FIVE new scenarios of exploration and adventure, but mostly cool because of the little wooden pirate ships. $50- (Boxed Game)
Pathfinder Adventure Planner: A great little campaign tool from Louis Porter Design! Fill in the blanks to design well-balanced and fun Pathfinder adventures, and keep the results as a campaign record. $14.99 (paperback)
Time Traveller’s Companion: GET IT? It’s a ‘companion’ for the Dr Who RPG! Luckily, it’s not just a bad pun, it’s a very useful sourcebook for Cubicle 7′s Dr. Who RPG, where you’ll find detailed secrets of Gallifrey, temporal mechanics, and the inner workings of the TARDIS! $39.99 (hardcover)
D&D 3.5 Deluxe Spell Compendium: The classic reprints continue, with this, arguably the single most useful and beloved 3.5 sourcebook. An indispensable resource for the serious 3.5 (or Pathfinder!) spellcaster.
Kuro: A neo-Tokyo horror RPG in the style of Uzumaki or Gyo. It’s the near-future, and a weird supernatural event means Japan is quarantined as they figure out what happened. Great scary stuff from the publishers of Trail of Cthulhu and Night’s Black Agents. $34.99 (Hardcover RPG)
INDIE RPGs!: We just got in a sizable restock of excellent small press RPGs and story games from Indie Press Revolution! These are innovative independently-published RPGs that you won’t find in most game stores. Restocked titles include the very hot Dungeon World, Serpent’s Tooth, The Quiet Year, Serpent’s Tooth, Our Last Best Hope, Fiasco, A Thousand and One Nights, Psi*Run, Dread, and many more. If you want to check some of these great new games out, check our calendars for Indie RPG Night in both locations!
