District Noir by Pandasaurus Games Coming Soon

Pandasaurus has announced a new 2 player set collection game District Noir is coming this summer. Preorders will start on May 19th with retail release planned for July 19th. District Noir was originally published in Japanese by Taikikennai Games in 2016 as Throne and Grail. It was then published in 2019 as Chocolate Factory by Nasza Księgarnia in Polish. The current art and theme was published last year in French by Spiral Éditions. When the time is right, gain control! At the head of the city’s largest criminal organizations, men and women fight to control territories and gain support by trying every means possible to grow their influence. Control of the District Noir, a central and highly contested area, remains the major issue that will make all the difference in dominating the city. There are two paths to victory: win over District Noir's various supports, or directly control the city’s three strategic locations. Before players can claim these, they must be played to the center

Cities of Venus by Tin Robot Games Coming Soon to Kickstarter

Tin Robot Games next project, Cities of Venus is coming to Kickstarter May 2nd.

The year is 2222, and the people of Earth have established floating city-states in the clouds of Venus. To provide aid, Earth periodically sends immigrants and city upgrades in the form of Cloud-drops. However, a catastrophe occurred on Earth, cutting off communication with Venus. No one knows when the last DROP from Earth will come.

As one of these cities' governors, you must compete against other players to establish dominance for your city's survival. Strategically grow and upgrade your city, deploy your scientists to the International Innovation Station, prepare for inevitable hazardous events, and mine the surface for priceless V-nite minerals. You must make the most of every Cloud-drop from Earth; the next one may be the last!


Cities of Venus is a medium-weight sci-fi Euro for 2-4 players – expandable to 6, which combines worker placement, tableau building, and resource-gathering mechanics. Each pledge comes with premium standard components such as quad-layer city player boards with slots for upgrade cards, resource trays, an in-box neoprene mat, and more than 450 game components. With a randomized game-end trigger mechanic and starting deck, every game is different, maximizing replayability. Will you rise to the challenge and lead the independent planet of Venus?
