Hello Readers! AEG is going to be bursting into November with some exciting game releases so let’s get right to it!
The highly talked about game Planes, by David Short, will have players taking on the roles of passengers trying to get through a crowded airport to board their plane before it takes off and leaves them behind! As in real life, this won’t necessarily be the easiest task to complete! Players will have to put up with checking in their luggage, going through security check points, grabbing a bite to eat or visiting the gift shop all while navigating the crowded airport and still being on time! Planes plays 2-4 players in about 30 minutes.
Planes is the 2nd in AEG’s “Destination Fun” Series following Trains. AEG hints at more travel titles in the future so we’ll have to wait and see!
AEG brings us back to the city of Tempest with it’s newest game, Patronize. Designed by Hisashi Hayashi (Trains), Patronize plays 3-5 players in about 20 minutes. Described as a trick taking game (love those!) players will be the head of a house that is very influential in Tempest. You’ll be giving your patronage to sculptors, painters, composers, forgers and charlatans in order to make sure your family name is remembered for their great accomplishments of the time. They key to winning is knowing when to support the right personality card at the right time or knowing when to withholding your support and passing.
With each personality card having their own strengths and weaknesses there will be multiple avenues of victory, which will bring depth and countless replays!
Listen up Pardner! New Town, New Rules here in Gomorra! The first exciting expansion to Doomtown: Reloaded makes its way into town squares everywhere in November! Several cards have been spoiled already but the Saddlebag Expansion will be bringing in cards to further strengthen all four factions. Morgan Cattle Co. known for it’s massive economy, Law Dogs for their control, Sloane Gang for their brute force and the Fourth Ring for their Spells and Hexes will all benefit from this expansion. It’s an exciting time to be playing Doomtown: Reloaded so stroll on by and pop in to the Town Square! Unless yer a yellow belly…
