For a limited time, Fireside Games has 3D Printer files for The Village Crone available on their website.

The Village Crone is a new worker placement game for 1-6 players where you become a witch and use your spells on the villagers and fight over the title of the Village Crone. The game includes tokens for familiars and villagers, and it looks like you can replace those tokens with nice 3D miniatures if you have access to a 3D printer!

Titans, & Witches, & Bears! OH MY!

Last week at the GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas, Fireside Games proudly announced three product releases for 2015: Castle Panic: The Dark Titan, Bears!: Trail Mix’d and The Village Crone.

Castle Panic: The Dark Titan

Castle Panica tower-defense cooperative board game in which players strive to defend their castle against an onslaught of monsters, will be receiving its second full expansion, The Dark Titan.  This expansion will add new monsters, new cards, and new support tokens, as well as Agranok, the Dark Titan who has escaped exile and returned to exact his revenge on your Castle.  The Dark Titan requires the Castle Panic core game to play, is fully compatible with the game’s first expansion, The Wizard’s Tower, and is scheduled for release on April 1, 2015.

Bears!: Trail Mix’d

Fireside Games’ dice roller, Bears!, is a fast-paced game in which players pair dice to avoid bears that are attacking their camp.  The game will now receive an expansion, Trail Mix’d, which will give players 6 new rules for the original game, as well as a die that is rolled before each round, changing up the rules that affect pairing and scoring for even more versatility and unexpected results.

Bears! is a game for 2 or more players ages 7 and up, and plays in 20 minutes.  Bears!: Trail Mix’d will be available in June of 2015.

The Village Crone

Finally, Fireside Games announces a brand new game, The Village Crone, where each player takes on the role of a witch in the medieval village of Wickersby.  Each player will vie for the venerable title of the Village Crone using worker placement and resource management to gather ingredients and cast spells on the villagers.  Players will achieve goals and score victory points by making the villagers fall in love, turning them into frogs, or teleporting them.  The game will also feature a solo play option.

The Village Crone is for 1-6 players ages 13 and up and plays in about 90 minutes.  It is scheduled for release in the fall of 2015.
