Fantasy Flight has announced a new expansion for the third edition of Arkham Horror, Dead of Night. According to Fantasy Flight’s website, this expansion features “two all-new scenarios, new encounters for every location in Arkham, new monsters and anomalies, a new monster deck holder, and four new investigators to face these fresh horrors, armed with new spells, items, and allies.”
In the first of the new scenarios, Shots in the Dark, the investigators are tasked with trying to bring peace to Arkham by getting the O’Bannion and Sheldon gangs to cease firing at each other and all the while investigate the underpinnings of why the gangs are at each other’s throats again.
The second of the new scenarios, On the Lam, concentrates on the character of Skids O’Toole, a down on his luck ex-con who has vowed to make his mother proud by finding ways to keep Arkham safe and protect it from the unknown.
More information on the new expansion is available here.
Investigators in Arkham Horror: the Card Game will be divided between reality and the world of dreams in the upcoming fifth expansion cycle. The Dream Eaters expansion includes 95 scenario cards, split between two different scenarios, and 56 player cards, including new investigator Luke Robinson, the Dreamer. The full campaign will consist of The Dream Eaters expansion box and six mythos packs to be subsequently released.
Each of the scenarios in The Dream-Eaters can be played on their own or combined with three of the six Mythos Packs in The Dream-Eaters cycle to form a larger four-part campaign. Alternatively, these scenarios can also be combined with all six of Mythos Packs to form a cohesive eight-part campaign.
The full campaign involves two parallel storylines, one in the Dreamlands and one in the waking world, each with their own campaign log. The expansion content brings back the keyword bonded, which was first introduced in the Before the Black Throne mythos pack of The Circle Undone expansion cycle. Bonded cards enter play through the use of a specific player card, but do not take up a spot in the investigator deck.
Fantasy Flight Games will open the Dreamlands for your group of 1-4 investigators to explore in the third quarter of 2019. This expansion is not standalone; a copy of the core set is required to play.
Agricola, one of the great classics of the Eurogame genre, was originally released in 2007. It was reprinted as a revised edition with new rules, art, and cute little ‘animeeples’ in 2016. But Agricola: Farmers of the Moor, one of the more popular expansions, was not given the same treatment at that time. Lookout Games has now released the expansion with the matching updated art and pieces.
Agricola: Farmers of the Moor steps up the misery on your farm a notch from the base game by requiring that you keep your family warm in addition to feeding them. But it’s not all starvation and pain, you have the opportunity to expand your farm by converting forests and peat bogs to arable land, and even better, you get some cute little horse meeples to add to your paddock. If you have the 5-6 player expansion for the base set, the expansion has everything you need to add the expansion in for all six players.
If you didn’t get quite enough medieval farming with the base set you bought in 2016, Agricola: Farmers of the Moor is available now. See the Lookout Games page (German) for more details.
