FoxMind Toys and Games would like to announce their partnership with Mandoo Games to publish the North American version of Slide Blast, a fun and fast-paced family strategy tile laying game with easy rules and great components.

“In Slide Blast, by cleverly choosing and placing tiles, players try to build the longest slide, allowing them to engage in high-speed straightaways, gut-wrenching curves and mind blowing tunnels!  Players also gain extra points each time they make another player slide.”

Slide Blast is a game for 2-6 players, ages 7 and up, and plays in about 30 minutes.  It is expected to be released in the 2nd quarter of 2017.

The game will be showcased at the upcoming 2017 Toy Fairs in Nuremberg and New York.  For more information on this announcement, visit the publisher’s site here.

Join forces with legendary heroes to brave the many dangers of a cavernous dungeon. Wield potent weapons and magic. Conquer hordes of vile monsters. Discover fabulous treasures. Glorious battles and astonishing riches await you with the upcoming release of Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game!

Fantasy Flight Games announces the upcoming revival of the classic dungeon-crawl board game, Warhammer Quest, in the form of a cooperative adventure card game.  In this game, 1-4 players will select from four hero types (Bright Wizard, Ironbreaker, Waywatcher, or Warrior Priest) and enter the tunnels together underneath the fantasy city of Skompf to fight monsters that threaten the city’s very survival.  Behind the havoc of the monsters in the dungeon is the quest’s deadly nemesis, whom the hero must confront and defeat to win the quest.

Each player will control his or her hero using four different action cards: Attack, Aid, Explore, and Rest.  While each hero possesses the same four action types, the effects of taking the action and amount of dice rolled varies between the different heroes based on the role they play in the party.  When executing an action, players will exhaust the appropriate card to take the action.  Exhausted action cards cannot be used again until the player refreshes all actions.

Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game is for 1-4 players ages 14 and up and plays in 30-60 minutes.  It is scheduled for release late in the third quarter of 2015.  For more information on this exciting new release, visit the game’s pages on the FFG website here.
