New from Mayfair Games!

Mad City

Take on the role of city builders as you race against time and other developers, and strive to build the most lucrative city. Arrange your city tiles in order to score for Residential, Industrial, and Urban areas. Do you dare boast that you have the largest communities or show off your roadwork skills in order to score bonus points? If you're a really efficient builder, you can wrap up your building projects before your opponents and be the only one to score bonus points from your city's ponds and parks.


Lords of Vegas: UP!


Your casino empire is expanding. But new players want a piece of your action. There's only one way to go to stay ahead of your competition - UP! This expansion for Lords of Vegas allows up to 5-6 players, as well as increases the size of your hotels, not just by building out, but also by building up. These new, taller hotels are more prestigious, and as a result earn you more Victory Points.

 Lords of Vegas will be featuring on Tabletop in late February. Make sure you've got both Lords of Vegas, and the UP! expansion (which will release earlier in February) to be ready for it!


Steam: Map Expansion #4


Experience the "Crossrails" of Europe in Poland and Mining and Markets in South Africa with this Map Expansion for Steam, which comes with four double-sided map panels (Poland and South Africa), plus an exclusive, new Steam Tile Sheet with new tiles for Expansion #3, and complete rules on how to incorporate them.

Ready Yourself for the Zpocalypse!

"I had heard a radio transmission saying the army had been overrun in the city and the government was gonna nuke the whole area. Well a few of us – the smart ones – we headed ourselves up n’ out to this old abandoned hotel with a fallout shelter."
"About a week or two ago, they dropped the big one. When it came, not all of us were inside. Some’ve us had been out scavenging. I don’t like to think on it much. The rest of us closed the doors and huddled together, with hell on earth raging outside."
"We have made it so far in the shelter. We are nearly out of supplies and need to find more. We have to open the doors, and hope it is all worth it.”

Zombies roam the earth...and they’re hungry! A survival board game set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, players in Zpocalypse start in a basement/fallout shelter which can lead out to several base locations, or even through the tunnels to sewer grates throughout the modular board. Utilizing combat, tactics, resource collecting, character development, team play, and strategy, the survivors endeavor to make it day-to-day in a world torn asunder by the walking dead.


As in any survival game, one needs food, guns, ammo, and more. Players venture into the wasteland and scavenge for supplies, or perhaps to find a new gun or melee weapon to fend off the next zombie attack. In addition to gathering supplies, each player forms and controls his own squad – and each squad works to fortify the bases. Your walls and barbed wire won’t hold the dead for long, however, and they’re getting hungry!
