Asmodee game releases Q3-Q4 2015
Asmodee publish some great games (â7 wondersâ, âAbyssâ, âDixitâ to name but three) and theyâve got more coming later this year, so we thought we’d give you a heads up of what tabletop gaming delights lay ahead from them.
Let’s start with bluffing game âMafia de Cubaâ, this looks real nice and adds a new spin on the “Werewolf” style games wherein you usually play in a larger group (in this case 6-12 players) and it involves betraying your fellow players. Along with the base game, Asmodee are also releasing an expansion, aptly titled âExpansion Revolucionâ, which brings new characters and agendas to the table.
Mafia de Cuba sounds like a lot of fun
We mentioned â7 Wondersâ, yes it’s another expansion inbound. Joining the already expansive array of expansions available comes â7 Wonders: Duelâ which changes the original gameplay mechanic to one-on-one gameplay (thus the name), itâs set for a November release.
One game that got a lot of GenCon buzz this year was âDiscoveries: The Journals of Lewis & Clarkâ. Set in the American West the game enters on the expeditions of the eponymous Lewis & Clark and uses a dice based system. Set for an official release 27 August (U.S.), this one is definitely on our ‘to check out’ list and it’s already been spotted on Aussie game store shelves.
Lewis & Clark… intrepid explorers in board game form.
Sadly this next game is not based on âThe Last Starfighterâ. âStraighterâ is a 2-player strategic battle card game set for a release this year, thatâs it, no definitive release date, but if you’re into your card games… Asmodeeeeeeeee.
Lastly weâve got a beautiful looking game in the form of âThe Little Prince: Rising to the Starsâ by Antoine Bauza and Bruno Cathala. This looks to tie-in with the animated movie release (based on the childrenâs story), not that thatâs a bad thing, Bauza pretty much negates those tie-in worries, this is set for a Q4 release.
And thatâs your upcoming Asmodee tabletop gaming releases.
