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. (And please note that stock at both stores is not always the same, so call or e-mail for confirmation that we’ve got a game in-stock at your location!) All prices are based on information received at posting time, and may change without notice. Again, call for confirmation of final in-store pricing.
Scroll down for previous picks, and check out the bottom of the page for our regular perks and special offers.
A revised and updated version of the Japanese game Fairy Tale designed by Satoshi Nakamura in 2004, this new edition of the introductory-level, card-drafting game includes new cover art by Chris Quilliams, a new variant by Richard Garfield, and five new expert cards that will “change” the game entirely.
Boxed Card Game, $19.99
The Doom That Came To Atlantic City is a beer-and-pretzels game of monstrous mayhem. You travel around the city building up your cult and expanding your abilities; do you want Flabby Claws and Membranous Wings, or would you rather be Non-Euclidean and Tentacular? Smashing houses provides you with the power you need to perform the rituals you acquire through Chants, and if you can steal all of an opponent’s cultists you can temporarily banish them. Chants cards, traits, and various methods of controlling movement provide strategic hooks, but it is a casual game and newcomers have a chance to bring down veteran players.
Boxed Board Game, $75.00
