Tasty Minstrel games have just released their latest newsletter detailing their plans in the run up to GenCon.
First up is the first expansion to their hot game Scoville – Scoville: Labs coming to kickstarter from August 11-20th. The expansion will come in the smaller box size like Harbour with minimal components but a maximum amount of depth being added to the game. Each player gets their own new 3×3 lab board that you can plant peppers on which no-one else can use. It comes with additional wooden peppers, new recipe cards and pepper multiplier tokens.

They are also pleased to announce that Cthulhu Realms is waiting for them at GenCon but stock of these few pre-release copies is expected to sell fast. It’s a family friendly Cthulhu game with funny artwork capturing the spirit of the mythos but in a funny way and is described as a child of Star Realms.
Flip City should be on retailers shelves soon. This unique deck builder works without a hand and cards played directly from the top of the deck. You play one at a time and can then buy a new card with any money you may have earned from those played cards. You could end up playing bad cards as well as good but don’t play too many unhappy ones or your turn will end.
