News Flash: You Lying Sack Announced, Wordle Board Game Released

You Lying Sack

New Game from Exploding Kittens
Exploding Kittens is partnering with the magician Penn Jillette, to make new party game, You Lying Sack, set to release in January. "The game revolves around an actual Lying Sack drawstring bag that players reach into retrieve either a Good Thing or Bad Thing in their clenched hand. They then bluff or tell the truth, baiting opponents to accept the item. If no one agrees to take the item from them, that player must keep it. The goal of the game is for players to avoid collecting 10 Bad Things, which would eliminate them from the game, and be the last player standing."

Wordle The Party Game Released
Hasbro has released a party game based on the popular online word game Wordle. "Each round, a player designated as the Wordle Host writes down a Secret Word. Just like the original Wordle game, players try to guess it in the few-est tries (six max). But in this game, players are competing against others. The fewer tries a player needs, the fewer points they score. The player with the fewest points at the end of the game wins!"

"Get ready to face the cut-throat world of business-Orcs, a maelstrom of competition, and wheel and deal to be the best: Orconomics, "the" boardgame to recreate the chaotic economic world of modern Orcs on the gaming table, will be soon in stores. Backstabbing, ripping off opponents, taking away their industries - all is legit, if you get to the top of the Orc jet-set. Build up your companies with your strong, green hands, and bargain to the bitter end with your rivals."

Wingspan Asia Pre-Order
Stonemaier Games has Wingspan Asia available for pre-order. The game is the third expansion to Wingspan but also can serve as a stand-alone game for 1-2 players. "Wingspan Asia is several different things: A stand-alone game for 1 player or 2 players (Duet mode that can be used with any bird/bonus cards), a card expansion to the original Wingspan (any bird/bonus cards across any Wingspan game or expansion can be combined), and a 6-7 player expansion via the new Flock mode (for which the player components from the core game are necessary)."

The Three Little Wolves (Opinionated Gamers): “I think that this game does what it wants – providing a nice light family level game.  After experiencing it again after a few years away, it’s still enjoyable and a nice entry level game.  I still think this is a great game to have around after family dinners, birthday parties, etc.  Would definitely recommend it for similar gaming situations.”

Shaky Manor (What’s Eric Playing): “That said, this is a game that kids and parents and grandparents and anyone not fitting into those buckets can pretty effectively enjoy. You just shake the box until you’ve gotten what you want where you want. And, like any good speed-based game, the simple concept is a lot easier said than done.”

Silver (The Board Game Family): “It’s getting played over and over in our family as well as at the office. The light nature of the game, simple set up, and quick player turns all help make it such a draw.”
