Capstone Games is ready to ring in the new year with two new games coming in January.
Magnastorm is a 2-4 player tactical board game that uses a sci-fi theme and resource management to help players on their way to victory by creating suitable mining areas on the planet. Players perform actions, buy influence, manage their resources and keep an eye on their opponents to time their moves perfectly to achieve victory. At the end of the game, players receive a card that can be beneficial in future games, changing up the replayability. It is for ages 12 and up and has a 70-100 minute play time.
Fuji is a cooperative dice game in which players roll simultaneously and secretly behind screens, much like in Roll for the Galaxy. Players must use their dice and terrain cards to move to a safe village and escape the lava of Fuji. But you can only move if you match the requirement on the terrain card better than your opponent. It is a 30-60 minute play time for ages 10 and up.

Quined Games is set to launch Counterfeiters– a resource management game of mafia mastery where players print fake money and launder it into the real thing. Play as a mafia counterfeiter in Miami, Florida using Supermarkets to launder your fake money, Black Markets to make higher quality counterfeits and Offshore Accounts to hide your real money from the Godfather and the police. To play you place one of your henchman on the board in the location you want to go. There are 6 different options: Buy at the Black Market, Print fake money, Flog (launder) your money at the Supermarket or through a Receiver, Commit Tax Fraud or Fly to the Caribbean (stash your real cash.) You take the action based on that location- for instance: if you go to the Black Market you use real money to purchase printers, ink, holograms and paper (so you can make better fake money,) diners (convert fake bills to real ones) or a private jet (to fly your real money to safety). You can also ask the Godfather for protection – but it’ll cost ya! All the while the police are on your tale and the Supermarkets are getting wise to your counterfeit game. So look out! You may not be able to launder those low quality bills for long! Be the one with the most real money at the end of the game and you are the winner! Counterfeiters is for 2-4 players ages 13 and up.
