The Morning Roll – Day 23

| Your Opinion

Good morning gamers,

Aporta Games has two new games lined up for release. First, Capital Lux is a sci-fi card drafting game, where you play a card in front of you of points or play a card from the centre of the table to trigger an action, so it should allow for some interesting strategy. Player with the most points at the end of the game wins. Second, Avenue is a route building game where you have to connect points using cards you collect. You get points for the route you create, and the player with the highest points wins. Expect both games in stores next month.

The Trial of Louis Riel is a new game available for pre-order from Victory Point Games and is the first of many The World on Trial series of games. This card drafting game is based on a historical figure and is meant to simulate a courtroom drama; like the real trial it is based on, the deck is stacked in favour of the prosecutor. You can preorder the game here.

The cult hit Room 25 will be getting an upgrade. Surfin Meeple will be releasing an ultimate edition of the game that includes the original base game and season 2 expansion, plus some refined rules. Find the Room 25: Ultimate Edition on store shelves later this month.

The Sid Jackson classic Aquire, originally released in 1964 by Avalon Hill, has seen many incarnations through the years, last one being released by Hasbro in 2008. Now Hasbro will be releasing the latest version this year, but this time upgrading the game with miniatures to replace cardboard models, plus some much improved artwork.

I’m a little ashamed to admit that I am late to the board gaming bandwagon. I briefly dabbled with RPGs and gave up on video games many moons ago, so board gaming never seemed like an option – until I was introduced to King of Tokyo, my gateway game, and it was all uphill from there! Outside of that, I work in entertainment in the true north, strong and free, and spend my off time embracing fatherhood.
