9. Risk Legacy

Once the excitement of opening new packets is over, you’re stuck with regular Risk; it’s like spraying perfume on a turd.

Fantasy Flight Games: Fury of Dracula

gw09_mainFantasy Flight Games is remaking Fury of Dracula:

The most notorious vampire of all rises again in this third edition of Fury of Dracula, a board game of deduction and gothic horror based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel. One player takes control of the legendary Count Dracula as he stealthily crosses Victorian-era Europe, spreading his diabolical vampirism everywhere he goes. Up to four other players govern Mina Harker and her determined companions as they try to locate and destroy the fiendish Count before he plunges Europe into horrific darkness. But in this heated game of cat and mouse, the hunted prey may also be preying on his hunters. Any day’s travel might bring the hunters to Dracula’s location. On any night the Count may attack.

This edition features all-new art and graphic design crafted to complement the game’s intuitive, thematic mechanics. Rounds are now broken into day and night: hunters take actions during both, but Dracula can only act at night. Combat is now more streamlined and decisive, and new rumor tokens allow Dracula to mislead hunters and extend the terrible reach of his influence. Count Dracula triumphs if he advances his influence track to thirteen; if the hunters can defeat him before then, they save the continent of Europe and win the game.

Fantasy Flight Games: Cave Troll

tj10_box_rightFantasy Flight Games has announced an interesting-looking new game called Cave Troll. Not only do you control heroes seeking to gain treasure, but you also control monsters seeking to thwart your opponents’ heroes!

Your ultimate goal in Cave Troll is to claim more gold than any of your opponents, using the heroes and monsters at your command to control chambers throughout the dungeon. Each turn, you have four actions that you must use to strategically position your figures and claim control of crucial chambers.
