Wise Wizard Games announced the launch of Wacky Wizard Games, a new brand imprint focused on family-friendly, lightweight games. Three games are planned for release in 2024 as part of this new brand imprint: Star Realms Academy, Caution Signs, and Pack the Essentials. If you are interested and attending PAX Unplugged they will have prototypes of Caution Signs and Pack the Essentials. "We are super excited to be adding this new family friendly product line to our catalog. We wanted to maintain the focus of Wise Wizard Games on strategy card and dice games with geeky themes, and have created Wacky Wizard Games as an umbrella for lightweight games with a more whimsical, cute vibe," shared Debbie Moynihan, COO of Wise Wizard Games. Star Realms Academy Forge your own star realms, overloaded with cuteness! A kid friendly but still fun for grown-ups version of the popular Star Realms deckbuilding game for 2 players. A little less math, no reading necessary, but still tons of fun! 

Machi Koro 2 by Pandasaurus Games Coming Soon

Pandasaurus announced the release of Machi Koro 2, a standalone sequel to Machi Koro - the smash-hit family-friendly dice game from Japan! Machi Koro 2 takes the original rules and adds new rules to deepen and vary gameplay so even veteran players will have new strategies to try!

What's New

The cards available in each game are randomized, making each game you play different! Buildings are separated into three decks (1-6, 7-12, and landmarks), but only five card types from each deck are revealed at a time. You can't bank on your favorite forest strategy anymore!

Players will complete three initial building rounds where they spend coins to choose the first buildings in their little towns. Landmarks also work different, as they each have unique effects and can be built in any order, but each one you build gets more expensive.

Pandasaurus will also be offering a pre-order promo for Machi Koro 2. Pre-orders placed through the Pandasaurus webstore or participating game stores. The promo pack will include 3 additional Landmarks: City Hall, Private Club, and Renovation Company!
