The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31

The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 was a hot game for a while. Released by Mondo, the game was popular, selling out and commanding high prices in the aftermarket. A lack of reprints, and really any news, of the game, was head-scratching, as the game was a hit and featured a lot of buzz from its Gen Con debut years back. Now, Mondo and The OP have announced that The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 is back and available for pre-order!

In the game, you relive the 1982 classic John Carpenter horror movie, The Thing, with this social deduction, hidden identity tabletop board game.

To win the game, players must complete missions, locate and identify the imitations, and escape the Outpost. Your ability to uncover the truth is critical to discover the imitations and win the game.

Play as 1 of 12 iconic characters (and as either a human or an imitation) from the movie, such as MacReady, Palmer, and Blair. The game is for 4 to 8 players and one we highly recommend.

Designed by The OP with art by Phantom City Creative, The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 retails for $60 and is expected to ship in November 2021.

Smash Up: Marvel

The Op has released Smash Up: Marvel bringing the comic world to the popular tabletop game. Listened from AEG, the game has players choosing two decks of fan-favorite characters and combining their powers to attempt to dominate their opponent.

The game centers around locations called Bases that have a “breakpoint”. When the limit is breached, each player earns Victory points accoring to their ranking in first, second, and third place. The first player to 15 total points wins the game.

You can choose from eight factions each with a different playing style. The game is perfect for long-time Smash Up fans and new players.

You can choose from:

  • The Ultimates: The cosmic themed faction that has the likes of Captain Marvel and Spectrum moves quickly from one base to another, allowing its member to attack from afar.
  • The Avengers: Six well-known and loved characters including Iron Man and Hulk have robust powers that are enhanced by items that were made just for them, creating impactful results.
  • Spider-Verse: Moving with spectacular speed is this deck’s forte, which means a quick response and special actions that boost the power of its stealthy arachnid characters.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D.: These highly-skilled agents infiltrate the battlefield with intensely honed team effort.
  • Masters of Evil: Diabolical members like Baron Zemo are built to become more aggressive as the game goes on, claiming more points through their nefarious plots.
  • The Kree: Otherworldly and steadfast, their leader The Supreme Intelligence is able to add power to the other members of this militaristic faction.
  • Hydra: If one member falls, two can take its place, resulting in intentional sacrifices that evildoers Arnim Zola and Red Skull will have no problem putting into effect.
  • The Sinister Six: The city is at this group’s mercy as they have base modifiers that lower breakpoints and allow characters like Doctor Octopus to grab up Victory points as he pleases.

The collection is a stand-alone game, but the 160 faction cards are also compatible with all Smash Up games, which have grown to include over 50 other factions, providing the ultimate crossover experience.

Smash Up: Marvel is for 2-4 players ages 12 and up.

The Batman Who Laughs Rising

The Batman Who Laughs is rising in the new game, Get Your Hands on The Batman Who Laughs Rising from The OP. It’s a terrifying side of Batman as one of DC’s most dangerous villains comes to tabletop games.

The Batman Who Laughs is a twisted evil version of Batman merged with the conscious of the Joker coming from the Dark Multiverse. A deadly combination of smarts and willingness to do anything to win, he’s been a terror for the DC Universe. The Batman Who Laughs has transported from DC’s thrilling Dark Nights: Metal series to terrorize the tabletop, accompanied by an evil army from across the DC universe. Working together as your favorite DC Super Heroes is more important now than ever, as players are urged to recruit allies, overpower the boss’s slew of Dark Knights, and prevent the relentless monster from taking over the universe.

In the game, players start by choosing their favorite starting Super Hero among Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hawk Girl, and the true vigilante Batman to defeat seven malicious Batman-The Joker hybrids that lead up to a faceoff with the quintessential Super-Villain himself—a shadowy enrobed and spike-blinded figure gripping Rabid Robins with a fistful of dangling chains. The Batman Who Laughs is at the center of this game as a custom sculpted, 120mm full color figure who oversees three zones where you and the other players must match dice to either add Heroes to your team or defeat threatening villains.

While similar to other Rising games in that players are joined by familiar allies, including fellow Justice League members Superman, Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg, tension is especially built up by a unique story arc-inspired Dark Knights Track, which not only pulls powerful anti-heroes into play as the game progresses, but forces players to confront the strongest Super-Villains before having a winning chance! Only by first defeating all seven cards that comprise this lineup of dangerous Batman Super-Villain combos, such as The Drowned, The Devastator, and The Red Death, can players go on to battle the demonic leader, putting their combined skills of Power, Purpose, Justice, and Determination to the ultimate test.

Also included are 1 Deployment Zone Tile, 4 double-sided Dark Knights Track Tiles, 1 Dark Knights Die, 1 The Batman Who Laughs Die, 15 Hero Dice, 32 Dark Knights Track Counters, 60 Damage counters, 4 Team Deployment Tokens, 30 Bonus Tokens, 4 Team Ability Cards, 38 Characters (Hero and Villain) Cards, 7 Dark Knights Cards plus 1 The Batman Who Laughs Card, and rulebook.

The Batman Who Laughs Rising is for 1-4 players, ages 15 and up. It retails for $49.99.
