Red Rising

Stonemaier Games Announces Red Rising
A collector's edition is available for pre-order and will ship in April, while a standard version will be released a few months later. "A hand-management, combo-building game for 1-6 players (45-60 minute playing time). You start with a hand of 5 cards, and on your turn you will deploy 1 of those cards to a location on the board, activating that card’s deploy benefit. You will then gain the top card from another location (face up) or the deck (face down), gaining that locations benefit and adding the card to your hand as you enhance your end-game point total."

Brew Announced

"Players must choose how to use element dice—either to take back control of as many seasons as possible in an area control game or to procure goods at the local village in a worker-placement game. Recruiting woodland creatures and brewing potions can help offset chance die-rolls or create an engine to help you tame the lands."

Metro X (The Board Game Family): “It’s not full of complicated rules to remember or things we need to look up. We just open, shuffle, and play. And each game lasts only about 15 minutes.”
