Are you looking for stocking filler ideas? We’ve got a few suggestions for you.
The Exit the Game series (More stock arriving soon)
RPG Dice Sets (we’ve got more in store!)
Blackstone Fortress is the next adventure in the Warhammer Quest series, seeing this new set of adventures taking place in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Firstly, every single model in the box is a brand new sculpt. They are push fit, meaning that they're very easy to build and you'll be ready to play in no time. You don't even need to use glue! (Although we'd still recommend you use glue.)
Choosing from one of eight explorers, each with their own background story and motivations, you'll brave the depths of the Blackstone Fortress. It won't be easy, as you face Traitor Guardsmen, Chaos Beastmen, Rogue Psykers, Negavoly Cultists, Ur-Ghuls, and Spindle Drones. The game includes 5 rulebooks, each covering areas such as datasheets, background, combat, rules, and precipice.
Each game will last 2-3 hours, but you are able to link the games to form a full campaign. The game plays on a board made up from a selection of hexagonal tiles. Anyone who has delved dungeons in the past will be familiar with this style of layout. Wondering about the cards that come with the game? Well, for starters, you'll get a whopping 234 cards in the set, including encounter, exploration and discovery cards. Of course, you'll also get a large number of counters and markers, as well as 28 dice! They're not all D6s either! You'll find D8s, D12s, and a D20 to help to create that roleplaying experience.

Do you want a board game that's unlike any other? That only you have? I don't mean a legacy game that ends up different to anyone elses. I mean one that starts unique. Well, you can have that! Discover: Lands Unknown is available to preorder now and out towards the end of the year.
Discover: Lands Unknown, for 1-4 players, is a new adventure for Fantasy Flight Games, joining KeyForge as one of their first Unique Games. Every copy of the game is unique. The copy that you pick up off the shelf will have different components than the copy your friend gets.
While the mechanics and some common components like meeples will be the same in every copy of the game, the vast majority of the cards, tiles, and tokens in your box will be randomised, selected from a vast pool of possible components. When you open your copy of Discover: Lands Unknown, you can never be sure what you'll find inside, and the combination will be different from every other copy in the world. Like the survivors of Discover: Lands Unknown, you don’t know what awaits. Lost in an unfamiliar world, can you survive and find a way home?
Watch the trailer below.

For two decades, Twilight Imperium has defined the essence of epic in board games. Now, Fantasy Flight Games has pubished Twilight Imperium Fourth Edition, a game of galactic conquest in which 3 to 6 players take on the role of one of seventeen factions vying for galactic domination through military might, political manoeuvring, and economic bargaining; a game generates unique space operas every time you sit down to play.

For players who don't own the game, it's the perfect time to jump onboard.

This 1-6 player game contains 6 quests, using the Oracle system, that sees adventurers build their own stories that will hopefully lead them to foiling the plot of an evil overlord. The Oracle system helps to create an immersive world of storytelling without the need for a games master. Your characters will gain experience, may increase stamina, learn new skills, or gain fame throughout their adventures; all of which will help them in their quest to solve the mystery of Dragonholt and save its citizens from the monsters that inhabit the world.
Despite Raxxon’s best efforts, the global infection rate has reached the tipping point. Many cities are unlikely to be salvaged, and citizens everywhere should evacuate to safer regions immediately.

Raxxon is a challenging cooperative experience in which every action you take has unintended consequences. Tempt fate as you investigate the crowd looking for healthy to evacuate and infected to quarantine or kill. The choices you make determine the fate of humanity - search desperately for those final healthy survivors as Raxxon's power reaches its apex, or watch as the undead overrun your city.

As you play, you will unlock new components, make new discoveries about your world, and stumble upon secrets that could change the course of history. No matter what happens, though, the world is counting on you. You are humanity’s last chance.
