News Flash: Zombie Kittens Released, CLANK! Catacombs Announced

Zombie Kittens

Zombie Kittens Released
A new, standalone sequel to Exploding Kittens (that can also be combined with the original) has been released. "Zombie Kittens is still the highly strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette that you love, but it introduces a brand new deck of cards so that your game doesn’t end just because you blow up. Only living players can win the game, but dead players now get to keep the cards in their hands when they explode. They also get to play certain cards to torment the living players. And they can even come back from the dead to win the game."

CLANK! Catacombs Announced
The new publisher of CLANK!, Dire Wolf, has announced a new standalone CLANK! game. "CLANK! Catacombs brings a new twist to the hit line of CLANK! deck-building board games: rather than a single dungeon to plunder, the map in Catacombs is built as you play with a series of modular tiles that are revealed as you find your way through tangled passages in search of treasure."

KuZOOkA Announced
Pegasus Speile has announced a new cooperative game, set for release this month and themed around animals escaping from the zoo. "Players begin each round be receiving a new set of item cards which they may not show to one another. Instead, they try to let the others know which cards they have and which escape plan to use by cleverly placing their marker on the game board. It shows the colors of the different items as well as numbers going from low to high. On their turn, a player must either propose a new plan by moving their animal marker to a space farther along the way than the previous player, or end the current escape attempt."

Ticket to Ride: Ghost Train Announced
A brand new, spooky-themed edition of Ticket to Ride First Journey has been announced. "In this horrifying edition of the classic Ticket to Ride First Journey, parents and kids collect Parade Float cards, claim routes on the map, and try to visit different locations in this hair-raising town"
