Queen Games continues their big-box rampage with Alhambra, while Teratozoic makes radioactive mutants fuzzy and cute! Keep your eyes peeled as researchers fight for prestige in the underwater depths of the AquaSphere, and watch for flying bottles from N30N City RUMBLE.

N30N City RUMBLE

by Davy Wagnarok

Do you like retro? Can you feel the neon buzz in your veins? Are you ready to rumble?

If so, check out N30N City RUMBLE by Davy Wagnarok; a card-fighting game that combines the style of old-school beat em’ ups such as Double Dragon and River City Ransom with over-the-top action. It’s only a shame that the actual printed cards can’t match the GIF-tastic awesomeness of the project page.

N30N City RUMBLE is a hardcore dueling card game for 2 players averaging 45 minutes. The game is set in a fused 80’s-90’s pop-culture/dystopian city, swathed in radioactive waste and neon lights.


AquaSphere

by Tasty Minstrel Games

What’ve we got here, a Feld game, on Kickstarter? Well, I never!

Claiming that they have no idea how many copies to print, TMG has brought AquaSphere to Kickstarter at a pre-order price of $40, a cool $20 off of the MSRP value (with free shipping). An action-selection game with a bit of area-control (you want to be the one to take credit for the work being done!), and what appears to be quite a few moving parts, AquaSphere is designed for 2-4 players and plays in about an hour and a half.

The AquaSphere is a research facility stationed deep below the ocean’s surface, and your skilled team – consisting of an engineer, a scientist, reprogrammable bots and exploratory submarines – is trying to gather as much data as possible.


Teratozoic

by Teel McClanahan III

A deckbuilding game for 2-6 players, Teratozoic forces you to design adorable monsters from both your personal gene pool and the common stock in an attempt to dominate each successive generation of breeding. At the end of the game, you must be able to build the biggest complete monsters from your own gene pool (deck) in order to win!

Check back here next week for our preview of this light but humorous game!

In their final global nuclear strike, humanity accomplished only two things: They wiped themselves out, and they created a highly mutagenic environment where the monsters could thrive.


Alhambra: Big Box and Special Edition

by Queen Games

Up next on Queen Game‘s Big-Box-O’thon? Alhambra!

There are two different boxed sets available through this campaign, the Alhambra Big Box, which includes the base set and all six expansions, along with two micro expansions (‘Queenies’), and then the Alhambra Special Edition Big Box, which includes everything else Alhambra, such as the dice game, the card game, The Gardens of Alhambra, and Granada.

Also just added, a free copy of New York to all pledges over $75.

Phew!

At the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, one of the most exciting and interesting projects in medieval Spain begins: the construction of the ALHAMBRA, which has become one of the world heritage sites. Compete against your opponents to build the Alhambra.

SENIOR EDITOR : Refined gamer, collector, consummate geek. Hoarder of miniatures, reluctant painter. My tastes run towards the strategic side of the fence, with city / civilization / empire builders at the focus. I've moved away from direct-conflict games these days, unless they're two-player or one versus many, so one can properly admire the beatdown put upon the opposing side. Yes, I've been known to wear hats with fuzzy ears on them.
