The board game (and board game-related!) news that caught our attention for the week ending November 10, 2017.

  • Richard the Lionheart makes its way to shelves next week from CMON. It promises to be an interesting battle between teams and individual goals. Check out this article to learn more about that dynamic.
  • Want a more in-depth preview of the Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch? You should because if you’ve checked the weather the last couple days, you can see that winter is, indeed, coming.
  • A few other games showing up at your FLGS next week include Dungeon Draft from Upper Deck (expect a review from us soon), the hidden movement game Last Friday gets an expansion, Return to Camp Apache, and the beautiful and fun bluffing/set collection Campy Creatures, which had previously been on Kickstarter (read our review).

At GeekDad, we write a lot about tabletop games. Here’s what we’ve written about this past week:

  • Jonathan Liu wrote about a Kickstarter for HeroTec, which lets you be Q for a bunch of superheroes, Dino Dude Ranch: Hatchlings, which is an expansion on Kickstarter, Ravine, a survival card game project from the group that brought us the awesome Spaceteam, and he also told us about a more fleshed out version of an old game. Looney Labs is bringing us a full box set for Zendo, one of the Pyramid games from the past.
  • I wrote about Hotshots, a cooperative firefighting game with awesome tokens that plays a little like a family-oriented Pandemic.

Finally, here’s what some of the GeekDad Crew has been playing this week:

  • Michael Harrison: Legends of Sleepy Hollow, Spires, Terraforming Mars
