    A Pioneering Challenge

    Pioneer is a format that drummed up a lot of attention when it was first announced, mostly because it was the first of the ‘what if modern but smaller’ formats that Wizards of the Coast were offering official tournament support...

Honga
Returner
Honga is for all levels of experience.

I discovered Honga in a search for a seemingly elusive worker placement game that would be ideal for an introductory session with non-gamers, or at best the very inexperienced. It has been a success, with a novel mechanism that reminds me of collecting taxes in the complex Tzolk'in The Mayan Calendar - but in a more approachable format that is entertaining despite the vexations of knowing which actions to choose. I am so glad Athena Games had this beautiful production in stock; it did not seem to be available at a decent price elsewhere. It also got an excellent reception from very experienced devotees.

Love the Digimon TCG & Athena!

I love everything about the Digimon TCG, and will continue to purchase from Athena Games. I always get my preorders on time and safely. No complaints!

Smashin’

Citadel finally nails the boar minis. And the savage orc riders have great flexibility for weaponry. Perfect for building up that Waaagh! energy.

Dice scroll

Very helpful for the storing and rolling of dice generally looks good and I would probably by another. Can store at least two dice sets or a stationary set so very good in general

Master of Mankind

Just started reading this, ordered it and the book arrived super fast. This guys writing is something else, fantastic!!!
