In Werewords Deluxe Edition, players guess a word by asking "yes" or "no" questions. Figure out the magic word before time is up, and you win! However, one of the players is secretly a werewolf who is not only working against you, but also knows the magic word. If you don't guess the word in time, you can still win by identifying the werewolf! To help you out, one player is the Seer, who knows the word, but has to be careful while helping you. If you guess the word, the werewolf can pull out a win by identifying the Seer!

Werewords Deluxe Edition contains several new special roles in addition to the Mayor, Seer, Werewolves, and Villagers, and a brand new Speedwords mode, new artwork, and can play as few as two players and up to twenty players.

Mysthea is a hand management and area control eurogame. Time-tested euro mechanics get a modern twist and are infused with a strongly thematic design to immerse you in the strange world of Icaion.

The game takes place on the planet of Icaion which was hit by a giant crystal in the distant past causing massive changes to the planet.  Through time these changes created floating islands held in place by the gravitational pull of the planet.  Through all of this the planet has developed a civilization which has found ways to use the power of the crystals to their benefit.

Mysthea has you taking the role of a champion with unique powers allowing them to explore new lands on Icaion with the ultimate goal of conquering five lands and returning to your homeland for victory.

It uses hand management and area control to drive game play.  With the use of their champions players will be able to move islands dramatically changing the power structure on the planet.  

But beware as players go about their strategic decisions they may encounter monsters that may force player cooperation in order to defeat them.  Players may also make some choices as to what they encounter as they build their armies to conquer lands to victory.

Mysthea will launch on KICKSTARTER March 7th, 2018. Sign up for their NEWSLETTER to get all the latest updates and news. Also visit their WEBSITE for more information.

What The Film?!
Designer: Alex Mackey & Mike Szalajko
Artist: None
Publisher: Lethal Chicken Games
Year Published: 2018
No. of Players: 3 - 8
Ages: 12+
Playing Time: 30-60 mins

What The Film?! is a fun party game where you get to come up with crazy movie ideas based on the hand you're dealt. On a player's turn from their hand, a player lays down an actor, set, and plot card. With 300 cards the mashups are endless. Not only are you competing with your friends, you are also fighting the clock. After cards have been played, you have exactly 36 seconds to pitch your movie magic to the table.

Voting is done simultaneously, so you don't have the time to persuade anyone at the table, no one like beggars in the film industry! On the count of three, everyone hands their colored award token to who they thought had the best movie. The player with the most points keeps their cards as points, everyone else discards the cards they played.

We know not everyone is a director at heart, for that reason we added Industry Cards. There are two types of Play Immediately's and Play and Discard and contain good and bad things that can occur on your turn or someone else's. For instance, one card can have you stealing the rounds points or another, causing you to pay union dues, which cause you to lose cards.

After six rounds, the person with the most points is declared the winner, and just like that, you're ready to receive your director of the year award!

What the Film?! is on KICKSTARTER between now and March 20, 2018 and has a funding goal of $5,000.
