Create the greatest civilization the Ancient World has ever known! In 7 Wonders, you lead an ancient civilization as it rises from its barbaric roots to become a world power.

2. 504 (PSI SG-4002)
In a distant future, scientists were able to build small alternate Earths. Exactly 504 such Earths have thus far been built.

3. Codenames (CGE 00031)
The two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their Codenames. In Codenames, teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. Their teammates try to guess words of the right color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin!


4. Mysterium (ASM MYST01)
A horrible crime has been committed on the grounds of Warwick Manor and it's up to the psychic investigators to get to the bottom of it. In Mysterium, one player takes on the role of the ghost and, over the course of a week, tries to lead the investigators to their culprit. Each night the team will be met with visions, but what is the ghost trying to tell you? Can the psychics determine the weapon, location, and killer - or will a violent criminal pull off the perfect murder?

5. Baby Blues


6. The Bloody Inn (ASM BLOINN01)
1831 Peyrebeille, France. Times are tough for the common man. It's all your family can do to make ends meet as lowly innkeepers. No crime is too sinister, no traveler is safe! Hey, an innkeeper has to do what an innkeeper has to do! Fortunately, your scruples have no qualms with murder. Of course, you can't just have dead bodies piled everywhere: it's bad for business, and besides, what if the police drop by for a visit? It's all so much work! Perhaps you could employ some of the guests as accomplices? Everyone has a price, after all! The Bloody Inn is a devilish game that pits family members against each other in a battle to see who can walk away with the most francs.



7. T.I.M.E. Stories (ASM TS01US)
When are we this time? It has been a grueling training regiment at the Academy, but you're finally ready for your first mission as a full-fledged T.I.M.E. agent. You and your team will travel back (or forward) in time to prevent some cataclysmic event. But don't waste a moment...every second counts! In T.I.M.E. Stories, players work cooperatively as a team to solve a mystery taking place in a different era. Each team member will enter a shell of someone alive at the time and gain their physical strengths and weaknesses.

What resulted is a year that will never be forgotten. This was no ordinary virus. This was no ordinary year. The team on the front lines saw things, lived things, did things that kept humankind from being snuffed out completely. The results of this virus will be spoken in whispers for generations. Can your team save humanity? Can your team make it through the year? Can your team face month after month of surprises, set backs, and fleeting victories? Are you prepared for Pandemic Legacy?

15. Stand & Deliver

Roll! Build! Win! The Kingdom of Rolldovia is in turmoil!

As leaders of one of the country's influential noble families, players vie with each other to establish their provincial city as the best home for Rolldovia's new capital.

17. ExoPlanets

18.Taverna

19. Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization



20. Trickerion (IMP APE2500)

21. Nippon



22. Alchemists (CGE 00027)

New IDW Products Coming Your Way!

Check out these games coming in stock soon from IDW Games!

The Game (IDW 00946, $19.99)
Are you ready to play The Game? Nominated for the 2015 Spiel Des Jahrs (Game of the Year), players in The Game must work together to play cards into one of four different piles, with the hopes of discarding all 98 cards. The trick is, you aren't allowed to tell anyone else what cards you have, so you'll constantly be on edge as each card played could upset your best-laid plans.

Fire & Axe (IDW 00850, $79.99)
Power and glory - or untold sorrow: which shall be your destiny? Glory and blood are at stake in Fire & Axe: A Viking Saga! A strategy game full of raiding, trading, and ultimate control, Fire & Axe features a unique wind mechanic and an innovative, semi-cooperative quest system that pairs pulse-pounding action with merciless strategy and tactics to deliver a game worthy of the mightiest warriors!

Pirates of the 7 Seas (IDW 00891, $59.99)
Take a turn for the topsy-turvy, where the top of this very tin serves as the board, your dice are your ships, and where they land on the board means as much as what you roll! Choose to remain an independent vagabond, or maybe cut a deal with a Governor to become all official-like in your pirating ways. Consult with a Shaman to curse the other pirates or pay a visit to the Cartographer to find a map with some hidden treasure. The Pirate with the most booty will win the day, but a Pirate's life isn't always on the up and up. Savvy?

Awesome Kingdom (IDW 00898, $29.99)
Get ready to get awesome! In Awesome Kingdom by Kevin Wilson (Descent, Arkham Horror, CHEW) you’ll take charge of one of the Awesome Ocho, a band of heroes on a dungeon crawl searching for untold riches. This tongue-in-cheek dungeon crawler delivers three rounds of highly-strategic laughter in an over-the-top setting of awesome proportions!


Star Wars Comic Packs (IDW 00921, $95.76)
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... Star Wars changed the film industry forever!
