The X-Files: Conspiracy Theory – Everything Is Connected Is Available Now!

The X-Files: Conspiracy Theory – Everything Is Connected card game, designed by Matt Fantastic is available on shelves now!

After another truly unbelievable case comes to an end, Agent Fox Mulder finds himself in a familiar seat — directly across from his superiors at the FBI. While Agent Scully urged him tell a story that the panel would accept, Mulder’s need to believe is just too great.

In The X-Files: Conspiracy Theory – Everything is Connected, players take turns at Fox Mulder as he uses the provided clues to explain his conspiracy theory to his FBI superiors. But reputation is everything at the FBI, and Mulder’s superiors are more interested in voting with the room rather than their gut. Mulder weaves together the conspiracy, and the superiors must deduce the way the rest of the room will vote…because the only thing worse than being an outlier is being a nut-case like Fox Mulder.

The game includes a second game mode, based on Jose Chung, from one of the most famous episodes of The X-Files: “From Outer Space”. Other players play as witnesses to a paranormal event and Jose Chung must look at all the evidence they provide and create a complete narrative that ties all their stories together.

Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell – Available Now!

The Cell Games are on the world’s greatest fighters have gathered to see if they have what it takes to defeat Cell, the perfect warrior. Teaming up to take him down, Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Krillin, Trunks and Piccolo must strategize together in order to stop the supposedly unstoppable machine.

In Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell, 2 to 4 players will each take control of an iconic Dragon Ball Z fighter and roll their dice to generate energy. Using custom icons, players allocate their dice into performing attacks, helping other players, or buying upgrades. Players need to work together though, as Cell will continue to generate new threats that can heal him, damage all players, or lock players out of potentially game-changing upgrades.

 

At the beginning of each round, reveal a number of Threat Tiles from the top of the stack equal to the number of players, then place those Threat Tiles face up next to the Cell Board. Then each of the players take a turn, rolling and spending their dice. The start player takes the first turn, then play passes to the other players in a clockwise order. After all players have taken their turns, Cell activates all of his active Threat Tiles, regaining health and dealing damage to the Z-Fighters as indicated.

Taking a closer look at the Power Up Tiles, they represent permanent powers that the Z-Fighters can acquire through training. Acquiring these Power Up Tiles will be essential in their effort to defeat Cell. Most Power Up Tiles have an effect that can be used if you spend the indicated dice. You must spend all of the required dice at once in order to use the effect. By spending the required dice multiple times, you can use a single Power Up Tile multiple times per turn. You can have a maximum of 3 Power Tiles equipped at a time. If you acquire another, you must immediately discard one that was previously equipped.

The Threat Tiles indicated the various maneuver that Cell will perform. All face-up Threat Tiles are considered active. New active Threat Tiles are revealed at the start of each new roudn. Each Threat Tile that isn’t cancelled by the Z-Fighters will activate at the end of each round. Some Threat Tiles prevent dice from being shared or rerolled. Any such limitation remains in effect as long as the Threat Tile has not been discarded. The tiles that have not been cancelled remain in play from round to round, so it is likely that, for some rounds, there will be more Threat Tiles in play than the number of Z-Fighters. It’s important to manage these Threat Tiles so you don’t get overwhelmed!

Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell, by Chris Bryan is on shelves now. Check out your local game store and save the Earth from Perfect Cell!

IDW Games and VIZ Media Announces Death Note: Confrontation

San Diego, CA, March 15th, IDW Games and VIZ Media announce Death Note: Confrontation. This 2-player game challenges players to a head-to-head battle of the wits.

Based on VIZ Media’s popular anime series and recently adapted into a Netflix live action film, Death Note follows Light Yagami, an ace student with great prospects bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by Ryuk, a rouge Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal… or his life?

In Death Note: Confrontation, players take on the role of either L, as he tries to deduce Kira’s true identity, or as Light, as he delivers justice to as the supernatural killer Kira. Each player uses their character’s specific notebook and either as L, reveals the criminal targets and to systematically locate Kira, or as Kira, eliminates targets in order to gain enough victory points. Death Note: Confrontation, designed by Jordan and Mandy Goddard (Lotus), places players in the hot seat as they battle wits to out-smart the other player.

Jerry Bennington, VP of New Product Development says “Being able to bring the story of Death Note to the tabletop is great and we are looking forward to people playing this spine-tingling game. Jordan and Mandy have done a great job capturing the feel of this story and it will be fun to see people be able to play it out and see who wins.”

Death Note: Confrontation will be releasing to retail in June 2018 for $29.99.

For more information follow the IDW Games social media and website about this upcoming head-to-head game.

The agreement was brokered by Evolution USA, the licensing agent for VIZ Media in North America.
