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.
If you’ve grown accustomed to Heroes as puny resources to be gathered and slain, get ready for the adventurers to strike back! The first mini-expansion for Boss Monster: the Dungeon-Building Card Game, Tools of Hero-Kind introduces new Item cards like “Cheat Code” and “Extra Life” that make Heroes more formidable. But if you can defeat these heavily-armed Heroes, you can claim their Items to gain new offensive abilities!

Adventurer is a dirty word. You’re a scoundrel, a villain, a wastrel, a vagabond, a criminal, a sword-for-hire, a cutthroat. Respectable people belong to guilds, the church, or are born into nobility. Or barring all that, they’re salt of the earth and till the land for the rest of us. Your problem is that you’re none of that. Based on the award-winning Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game system, Torchbearer is a riff on the early model of fantasy roleplaying games. In it, players take on the role of fortune-seeking adventurers, delving into forlorn ruins, braving terrible monsters, and retrieving forgotten treasures.

Life’s rough out in the black: money don’t come easy and makin’ it doesn’t often allow one to preserve their honor. It’s important to keep both of course: can’t eat without the coin, but a handsome reputation will get you pretty far, too. In Firefly: Out to the Black, you play as one of the nine Serenity crew members and work together with your fellow players to face the various entanglements that come your way. You’ll face the Alliance, Reavers, low-down dirty deceivers and all manner of nastiness as you scour for jobs, choose partners for your missions, and ultimately do your best to stay afloat and keep on flyin’! Firefly: Out to the Black includes nine character sheets, 88 cards, over four-dozen tokens, and much more!
