Cat in the Box: Deluxe Edition Announced
Bezier Games has announced Cat in the Box: Deluxe Edition, a trick taking card game, set for release this summer. "Hypothesize how many tricks you will win, and make your bid. Place tokens on the community research board as you play your hand, and connect large groups of tokens to score even more points. Plan your tricks carefully as you cannot claim the color of a card with the same number that has already been declared. Doing so would be catastrophic as you have just created a paradox!"

They must navigate the ocean, complete a series of activities unique to each scenario, and then return to the surface without running out of oxygen or putting too much stress on their bathysphere, lest they be lost to the world below the waves forever."

Pandasaurus Games Announces LOOP Expansion
An expansion for The LOOP has been announced, set for release in August. "This tongue-in-cheek cooperative game made a splash everywhere it was played.

Six Greetings Card Games (Tabletop Games Blog): There is certainly a wide choice of games and I’ve already started to work out which of my friends and family I will send which game for their birthday this year.”

Aqualin (Tabletop Bellhop): “If you are looking for a thinky filler that’s great for two players and is simple to teach to new players, Aqualin would be a good choice.”

Star Wars: Jabba's Palace (Unfiltered Gamer): “The benefit of the simple design is that it can lull players into a false sense of security. While the rules and mechanics are incredibly easy to understand, you might be tricked into thinking that the game lacks nuance. The truth is there are a lot of subtle strategies at play here, especially with more people in the game. Having a good memory and a keen understanding of math and probability specifically will help you out to no end.”
