Steve Jackson Games announced a new game on November 23rd - Bill & Ted's Excellent Boardgame! The game will include 60 cards, 36 tokens, one game board, and a rulesheet. It's priced at $19.95 SRP but there's no release date yet. Steve Jackson Games only lists it as In Production. There's not a lot of information on the game yet but the Press Release does give us an idea of the game play. It looks as if it will follow the movie closely with you having to pass an oral history exam and gathering persons of historical significance so you can create the most excellent future everyone is looking forward to. The official Press Release is listed after the break.

Steve Jackson Games has announced a few new expansions to their Munchkin and Chez Geek line - Munchkin 6.5: Terrible Tombs, Munchkin Puppies, and Chez Geek: Spring Break. All three expansions are scheduled to be released in April of 2016 and, hopefully, we'll see some more information and images of these soon.
Munchkin 6.5: Terrible Tombs
This is an add on to the expansion Munchkin 6: Demented Dungeons which incorporates portal travel to different dungeons and adds a whole new element to Munchkin. Munchkin 6.5: Terrible Tombs adds more of these but they will be tomb themed instead of dungeon themed. Munchkin 6: Demented Dungeons is not required to play with but it would be neat to add both expansions to the game. Munchkin 6.5: Terrible Tombs will add 20 tombs and 16 portals.
Munchkin Puppies is the opposite of the recently released Munchkin Kittens pack - but only in species. Munchkin Puppies is perfect for the dog lovers in the family much as Munchkin Kittens is perfect for the feline lovers. Adding both together in a game should make for interesting play, too. The pack will include 30 new cards.
Chez Geek: Spring Break
The Chez Geek: Spring Break expansion will add 40 additional cards and 16 over-sized event cards to enhance Chez Geek and change the rules. Everything a slacker needs to have fun during their college spring break.

Gale Force Nine (GF9) has announced that they are releasing a new Dungeons & Dragons board game in the Spring of 2016. Tyrants of the Underdark is set in the Forgotten Realms and will be playable with 2-4 players in about 60 minutes. Tyrants of the Underdark is being designed by the same team that brought us Lords of Waterdeep so this will be an exciting addition to the D&D universe. The GFN Press Release also states:
Designed by Peter Lee and Rodney Thompson, Tyrants of the Underdark is a competitive board game in which you play as a drow house recruiting monsters, cultists and demons to aid you in controlling locations such as Menzoberranzan and Blingdenstone. Using power and influence as resources, Tyrants of the Underdark features multiple strategies you can use in crafting your deck of minions. Be the spymaster infiltrating your enemy's strongholds or the deadly war-leader concentrating on assassinating enemy troops. No matter how you decide to play, whoever controls most of the Underdark at the end of the game wins, unless there's some hidden strategy in play.There are also some images of sample cards, miniatures, a market deck, and a house card from ICv2 that look really cool.
