Aye, Dark Overlord! The Red Box
Whether it's in comic books, movies, or fantasy novels, the forces of Good always seem to eke out a win over Evil. Once the minions and monsters have slithered back to the darkness, however, there's an Emperor, Evil Wizard, or Dark Overlord demanding to know why his or her plans fell apart. Aye Dark Overlord!: The Red Box is the classic version of the storytelling party game for four to seven players where Servants give their best excuses to appease their evil master, lest they suffer the wrath of their Dark Overlord. Hint cards give the players a framework for their story, but it's up to their wits to avoid the Withering Looks of the Dark Overlord and live to serve another day.
The Red Box is a re-release of the 2005 version of Aye, Dark Overlord! from Fantasy Flight Games. Players who have been groveling as minions or ruling with an iron fist as the Dark Overlord Rigor Mortis will already be familiar with this version of the game. You can even double the fun by expanding The Red Box with the brand new actions and Hint cards included in The Green Box.
Aye, Dark Overlord! The Green Box
No Evil Wizard or Dark Overlord throws in the towel after just one battle, and the fantasy storytelling game is back for round two with Aye, Dark Overlord!: The Green Box. Whenever an Emperor fails to quash a rebellion or an Evil Duke kidnaps the wrong heir, someone has to take the blame. In Aye, Dark Overlord!, players tell their best excuses to an unforgiving master in the hopes that they won't be blamed for the latest failure of Evil to triumph over Good. Servants of Darkness will use Action cards to sabotage each other as they build excuses around Hint cards, all while trying to avoid the Dark Overlord's Withering Looks and live to serve another day.
Aye, Dark Overlord!: The Green Box is a new version of the game that's a complete game on its own, but can also be paired with The Red Box or the original Fantasy Flight Games version of the game for even more variety! With the same card backs and production specs, you can trust the Hint cards, Action cards, and Withering Looks to match both The Red Box and the FFG edition of the game, and The Green Box adds entirely new mechanics, including the Back of the Line and No Way! Action cards. Occult Hunters, The Best from the Labyrinth, The Jar with a Thousand Demons, and Impossible Math Calculations are just a few of the new hints in The Green Box, giving you more stories to shield yourself from the Dark Overlord's wrath.

"The king and his allies moved westward at the head of fifty thousand men - knights in shining armor with their pennons streaming above their helmets, pikemen in steel caps and brigandines, crossbowmen in leather jerkins."
-Robert E. Howard, The Hour of the Dragon
You won't command fifty thousand men when you play Conan as the Overlord, but you can harness the power of Bossonian guards, Pict warriors, giant snakes, dark demons, and other fiendish and fearsome forces. To these forces, the Crossbowmen expansion adds an assortment of ten identical, highly detailed crossbowmen miniatures.
Dressed in light armor, and holding their crossbows at their hips, these soldiers come with three tiles that you can add to the Book of Skelos and that allow you to field them with two different sets of abilities. Two of these tiles allow you to deploy your crossbowmen in as devoted warriors who will harass the heroes with their deadly ranged attacks before sacrificing themselves, when necessary, to protect their leader. The third tile allows you to field your crossbowmen in a specialized unit of snipers that ignores the first point of a hero's armor.
Conan: Yogah of Yag
"Conan stared aghast; the image had the body of a man, naked, and green in color; but the head was one of nightmare and madness. Too large for the human body, it had no attributes of humanity. Conan stared at the wide flaring ears, the curling proboscis, on either side of which stood white tusks tipped with round golden balls."
-Robert E. Howard, The Tower of the Elephant
It was in Robert E. Howard's story The Tower of the Elephant that Conan first met the strange, towering, transcosmic creature known as Yogah of Yag, and the Yogah of Yag expansion brings this creature to the Conan board game as a towering, elephant-headed hero with talents in both sorcery and swordplay.
Considerably larger than the heroes from the Core Set, Yogah of Yag enters the game with a whopping twelve energy, a melee attack that rivals even Conan's, and the ability to cast spells. Additionally, this strange hero's abilities recall his appearance in The Tower of the Elephant by allowing him to sacrifice himself for another hero and then strike at his foes from beyond the grave.
Time Stories: Expedition Endurance
Prepare yourself for a horrifying journey to the frozen wastes of Antarctica!
In Expedition Endurance, the fourth expansion for T.I.M.E Stories, a temporal anomaly of the worst sort has opened up in 1914, in Antarctica. This is the year that the crew of the Endurance attempted to cross the continent and failed, and your efforts to unravel the mysteries of this temporal anomaly will carry you into a realm where temperatures drop below -40 and, as Bob warns you, there may be supernatural forces at work.
Watson & Holmes
Race to find the truth in the mysterious world of Watson & Holmes, a game of deduction and intrigue for two to seven players. Each aspiring detective will work alongside Sherlock Holmes in order to solve a series of mysterious cases.

Once you believe you have all the facts, you must present your findings to the brilliant Holmes and the good Dr. Watson. Answering every question correctly will lead you to victory, though one misstep and you will be forced to retire from the case, leaving the remaining investigators to accurately interpret the clues before it's too late.
