More Smash Up, X-Wing Tiles, and Free Stuff from Mayfair!

17 04 2013

smashcoverAlderac has officially unofficially announced today that there will be yet another expansion for the hit Paul Peterson title Smash Up, releasing in August. It will feature 4 new factions taking on the same format as Awesome Level 9000. With a few twists. From Alderac’s Facebook page: There have already been a lot of questions about more Smash Up, so we’ll let you know there is another set of 4 factions coming in August! For the first time, this set has an overall theme running through the factions. Each is distinct, with its own focus mechanically and visually, but there is a common thread that runs through all of them. Speculate away!

We interviewed designer Paul Peterson a few months ago, you can check out our interview and see if he left any clues for us on this third expansion…

Fantasy Flight has announced that they are releasing a Tile/Battlefield kit for their X-Wing Miniatures game. The set comes with 12 tiles each measuring a square foot, and featuring iconic locations in the Star Wars Universe. They look slick, and appear to offer a great, and FLAT, surface to hold your battles on! Check out the photo we’ve included. And you can see the official info on Fantasy Flight’s site here.

Deck the Halls with…Bales of Wool?

26 11 2012

Last week, Mayfair Games announced their Catan Ornament for 2012; this year is their third release in the line, and the featured resource is wool.

It’s a cut brass ornament featuring iconic symbols from the island of Catan. For more information and a sneak peek at another ornament offered this year just follow this link.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned this week for more from our 2012 Christmas Holiday Gift Guide!





‘Give You Brick For Ore? Highly Illogical….’

11 07 2012

Mayfair Games, who never met a franchise that couldn’t use the word “Catan” attached to it, have recently announced Star Trek: Catan. The game will feature resource collecting, a variable board, and the help of the original series’ characters through the play of support cards. How, exactly, it differs from the original we won’t know until GenCon next month, where Mayfair will be previewing the game.

Perhaps the most interesting piece of the announcement is that the new game will be sold exclusively through Target stores.

We hope to have a review of this once it’s released. Stay tuned to Theology of Games for more board game news and reviews. Thanks for reading!
