Check out this week’s new releases at Jupiter Games!
Prepare to be challenged as you to harness your powers and challenge up to three other players in a battle for dominance. During the game, your dice provide the resources you need, but throughout the game, you’ll change your dice, snapping new faces on and improving your chances of claiming victory. When the gods call an end to your contest, the player with the most glory wins the game. The box contains:
- Temple board
- Island board
- 96 cards
- Round tracker
- 8 dice and 108 die faces
- 4 hero inventories and four hero pawns
- 20 resource markers
- 25 tokens
A real-time observation game based on the psychological Stroop Effect, which is a phenomenon caused by different functions of the brain interfering with one another. The cards in Stroop each display a single word. The words are printed in several colors (black, red, blue, and yellow), sizes (big and little), and styles (hollow and solid), and they have different numbers of letters (three, four, five, and six). The challenge is to read one word and quickly match it with the description of another word — without regard to what the second word says. Round one players are dealt an equal number of cards, and a card is turned face-up in the center of the table, forming the base of a pile. Players then race to find a card in their deck that the center card describes, and place this on top of the pile, changing the center card. Play continues until one player runs out of cards. Round two is the exact except that the rule for eligible cards to play is reversed: now a card may be played only if its text describes the qualities of the card in the center. The player with the fewest cards remaining wins.
Near and Far
A sequel to Above and Below, four wanderers search for the Last Ruin, a city that legends say contains an artifact that will grant the greatest desires of the heart. In Near and Far, you and up to three friends explore many different maps in a search for the Last Ruin, recruiting adventurers, hunting for treasure, and competing to be the most storied traveler. You must collect food and equipment at town for long journeys to mysterious locales, making sure not to forget enough weapons to fight off bandits, living statues, and rusty robots! Sometimes in your travels you’ll run into something unique and one of your friends will read what happens to you from a book of stories, giving you a choice of how to react, creating a new and memorable tale each time you play.
Tales from the Loop
In this game, which is totally not Stranger Things, you play teenagers in the late Eighties, solving Mysteries connected to the Loop, the world’s largest particle accelerator. Choose between character types such as the Bookworm, the Troublemaker, the Popular Kid and the Weirdo. Everyday Life is full of nagging parents, never-ending homework and classmates bullying and being bullied. The Mysteries let the characters encounter the strange machines and weird creatures that have come to haunt the countryside after the Loop was built. The kids get to escape their everyday problems and be part of something meaningful and magical – but also dangerous.
Pathfinder Adeventure Path: Prisoners of the Blight
For your 14th-level characters, continue the Ironfang Invasion Adventure Path! A war-torn homage to classic fantasy adventure in which the heroes defend their homeland from a savage invading army. An array of new boons and banes powerful fey can bestow upon mortals, a selection of blighted and First World monsters, and a review of the faith of Cyth V’sug, demon lord of filth and pollution!
New and Improved D&D Spellbook Cards
These spell cards are more logically organized and with more content per deck. The cards will have every spell you’ll need, so you’ll never need to search the rule book for several minutes to find the spell you’re casting.
