Board Games new to Dr. Comics & Mr. Games this week!

The Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game (Deck/Pool Building) - $44.95, WizKIds Games.

2-4 Players, Ages 14+, 30 min play time.

In The Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game, which uses the dice-building game engine from Quarriors, players lead an army of brave men, wise elves, battle-hardened dwarves, and even the short-statured but stout-hearted hobbits – represented by custom dice – to stand between Sauron and his armies of orcs, goblins, trolls and ringwraiths as they scour the land to find The One Ring.


Disaster Looms!
(Economic/Negotioation) - $60.00, Break From Reality Games.

2-4 Players, Ages 11+, 1-2 hours play time.

The race to escape Earth has begun! With the world’s nations in decline, powerful corporations now stand as humanity’s last hope. Take the reins of one such corporation, as CEO, and venture out into space. With your mission in hand; build ships, collect resources, research technologies, survive the dangers of space exploration, and, while ticket sales hold steady, preserve the human race. Remember to stay a step ahead of competing corporations, which can use slick marketing campaigns and 10 cent tchotchkes to buy the loyalty of the people you just saved from certain doom!

Balance of Power  (Area Control) -  $49.95, Catalyst Game Labs.

2-6 Players, Ages 13+, 45-90 min play time.

It is 1815 and the world has been turned upside down. Napoleon Bonaparte has finally been defeated after nearly conquering all of Europe through years of devastating warfare. Now the Great Powers must deal with the chaos left behind. As each nation eagerly tries to grow, a careful balance of governmental, military and economic interests must be maintained. In Balance of Power, players carefully create and move Kings, Generals and Bankers as they capture territories and expand their empires.

Grave Business  (Bidding/Worker Placement) - $44.99, Minion Games.

2-4 Players, Ages 13+, 45-60 min play time.

You are a Necromancer. In fact, you are a particularly dangerous one, as you are a Necromancer with a business plan. Your zombies will dig up and loot valuables from graves, and while they’re there, they can also grab fresh body parts so you can make MORE zombies to dig up MORE graves. Sounds good, right? Unfortunately, it’s so good that other Necromancers are now competing with you for the choice cemeteries!


Cutthroat Caverns
(Hand Management) - $34.95, Smirk & Dagger Games.

3-6 Players, Ages 14+, 45-60 min play time.

Cutthroat Caverns is played over 9 rounds, each with a random encounter. It is essentially a game of ‘kill stealing’. Each round, any monster encountered will have a prestige value of 1 through 6. The player that successfully jockeys for position and lands the killing blow gets the prestige value for the encounter. Some encounters will not have a specific monster, such as a trap room for the heroes to pass through (and in this case, earning no prestige). The surviving player with the most prestige after the 9 encounters is the winner. If the players do not survive all 9 encounters, no one wins the game.

A unique combination of cooperative game play and opportunistic backstabbing.

Hey board game lovers! Dr. Comics has recently spiced up our Board Game Rental Program (BGRP) with four new games!

Cargo Noir - A smuggling-themed resource grabbing and bidding game.

Kingdom Builder - This area-control strategy game was created by Donald X. Vaccarino, creator of Dominion.

Snake Oil - A fantastic party game in the tradition of Apples to Apples. You must combine two cards in your hand to create a product you must “sell” to the dealer!

Mad Zeppelin - Compete to be the first to push the most goods out of the Zeppelin using your hired mercenaries.

The games in our BGRP are available to customers to rent for a week at a time. Rental fees are 15% of the purchase price of the game, and returning the game on time will earn you a coupon that is good for 10% off the price of a new copy!

A listing of our full game rental library, complete with descriptions and rental prices, is available in binder at the front of the store.

Try something new at your next game night, courtesy of Dr. Comics!
