Black Spy—A Teaser from Z-Man Games

Z-Man Games this morning has teased a new game on their Facebook page. Black Spy LogoBlack Spy, from the little information they've given, sounds like a trick-taking game with some intrigue mixed in.

From Z-Man "Black Spy is a film noir take on Hearts. You must enlist the best spies to get what you want, but beware of the black spies; they will turn against you if given the chance. Keeping your hands clean won’t be easy. Can you outsmart your opponents?"

The juiciest bit of info from the announcement is that the game is designed by Ticket to Ride craftsman Alan Moon!

We'll keep our ears to the ground and bring you more info as it becomes available.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for a great week of news, reviews and interviews this week!

Gourd On the Tracks—Ticket To Ride Adds Pumpkins...

Just in time for Halloween, Days Of Wonder has announced a limited edition Halloween Freighter set for the ridiculously popular Ticket To Ride game. There will be 45 trains pieces with bright orange pumpkins, and three orange station markers. You can use these to replace any trains in any of the Ticket To Ride games. Not sure what makes it Halloween-y (Halloweenie?), since they aren't even Jack-O-Lanterns—just plain old pumpkins. Nevertheless, it should be out in time for Halloween, and will retail for $12.
