Hachette Games and Gigamic announced the upcoming tile placement game Akropolis will be coming to the US on July 1st 2022. "Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!" Gameplay Overview Take on the role of an architect and build your own akropolis in ancient Greece. Try to construct districts of similar buildings and stack them high to increase their value. Add plazas as multipliers for even more points! Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city.

KRAMPUS! BRINGS THE YULETIDE CHEER IN DECEMBER


Unconventional hero saves Christmas in Image Comics graphic novel


He’s the Krampus, yuletide wielder of birch switches and punisher of wicked children, long locked up so that his particular brand of outdated discipline won’t ruin yet another Christmas. And he’s the unexpected hero of the Image Comics graphic novel KRAMPUS!, a jolly holiday romp by Brian Joines (Imagine Agents) and Dean Kotz (Charmed, Mask of the Red Panda).

Scheming Sugar Plum Fairies have stolen the Secret Society of Santa Clauses’ power, and the only one cunning enough to get it back is the Krampus. With his flying wolf Stutgaard, the Krampus sets out on a world-crossing mission, encountering other mythical figures of winter lore and uncovering a sinister scheme to topple the Santas. If it succeeds, it will change Christmas forever — and if Krampus succeeds in stopping it, so will he.


“I grew up with a kind of jaded, dark sense of humor and I love the idea of anything that punches holes in the bright and shiny ‘sacred cows’ of childhood and innocence, like Christmas,” said Joines in an interview at What’cha Reading?. “I think the Krampus is a figure that represents a rebellion against the false elements. In a lot of ways, it’s kind of cathartic.”


With raucous, action-packed art by Kotz and belly-laugh gags, KRAMPUS! arrives just in time for holiday cheer, in comic book stores on December 3 and bookstores on December 16. It is available for pre-order now.
