KOT-3D_Box

Today’s the big day! If your FLGS preordered the new edition of King of Tokyo, you can now go pick up your very own copy! As we said in a previous post (announcement), the new edition replaces Cyber Bunny and Kraken with Cyber Kitty and Space Penguin. It also features reworked, clearer rules and all-new art done by Regis Torres! Check out the comparison of the two editions by Game Boy Geek here or an overview by The Dice Tower here!

Monster Chase, by Antoine Bauza, is also widely available, through both brick and mortar and online retailers. Our new version of the game features new artwork and a handful of variants that increase and decrease the game’s difficulty, making it enjoyable for young and old gamers alike!

New releases – World of Yo-Ho & Mexica

We’re excited to announce two BIG (seriously, these boxes are heavy) games that are joining the IELLO family today: World of Yo-Ho and Mexica!

World of Yo-Ho_Box_EN small

World of Yo-Ho is a fantasy game of adventure and piracy on the high seas. It’s a new type of game, for 2 to 4 players, that combines the tangible and social pleasure of a board game with the interactive mechanics of a video game. Become the most famous pirate of this parallel world full of intelligent animals, lost islands, and wild magic. The app is free and brings hilarious animations and sound effects to your battles and explorations. Though gameplay is more dynamic with a phone, the game includes material to allow you to play with four phones, or even just one phone. Tom Vasel from The Dice Tower picked it as his top game of December and also put out a fun review that shows gameplay! Check out our World of Yo-Ho youtube playlist for more gameplay and review videos!

Mexica is the third installment of the legendary “Masks” trilogy designed by W. Kramer & Mr. Kiesling. Tikal and Java were the first two games in this series, but we’ve redone the art to modernize it. Mexica is an investment game, requiring players to successful block their opponents while vying for majority with simple and subtle rules. Judiciously use your action points to build neighborhoods, dig navigation canals, build bridges … and counter the plans of your opponents! The game comes with sturdy resin temples to place and beautiful artwork on the map. Check out our Mexica youtube playlist for gameplay and review videos!

New releases – The Big Book of Madness & HON: Gazette #4

BigBookMadness_3Dbox

Today has been long-awaited by many gamers across the world (especially those of you who didn’t make it out to Essen)… The Big Book of Madness is now available for purchase! We’re really proud of this game since our French team has been working hard on this game all year long! The Big Book of Madness is a cooperative deck-builder from 2 to 5 players where each player is a magic student working together to imprison terrible monsters in the tome from which they were mistakenly released. Each player has their own element deck that they use to cast spells, heal curses, and improve their decks further. If you manage to turn six pages of the book and defeat all the monsters,  you win the game! For a closer look, you can Watch it Played by our very own Sara here, or watch a Dice Tower review here.
