A pair of rather different releases for you this week from Fantasy Flight. On one hand, you have Unfathomable, a new horror board game about being out at sea when eldritch horrors attack. The other is the War Machine Hero Pack for Marvel Champions. I bet the folks aboard the boat wish they had a suit of power armor brimming with guns.
The year is 1913. The steamship SS Atlantica is two days out from port on its voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. Its unsuspecting passengers fully anticipated a calm journey to Boston, Massachusetts, with nothing out of the ordinary to look forward to. However, strange nightmares plague the minds of the people aboard the ship every night; rumors circulate of dark shapes following closely behind the ship just beneath the waves; and tensions rise when a body is discovered in the ship’s chapel, signs of a strange ritual littered around the corpse. This voyage began like any other, but now it seems that the Atlantica may never reach its destination.
Immerse yourself among the passengers and crew of the SS Atlantica in this game of hidden loyalties, intrigue, and paranoia for three to six players. Some players are humans who are fighting for the survival of the ship, while others are traitors sent aboard the ship by mysterious beings to ensure that it never reaches port! Because player loyalties are hidden, determining who is friend and who is foe is critical to winning a thrilling game of Unfathomable.
A proud soldier and a longtime friend of Tony Stark, James Rhodes fought for his country as a United States Marine fighter pilot before Stark outfitted him with his very own advanced armored suit. Now, he fights for all of Earth as War Machine, and the forces of Thanos won’t know what hit them!
This heavily-armored Avenger flies into battle in this expansion pack, which introduces War Machine as a brand-new playable hero, along with his fifteen signature cards. With a pre-built Leadership deck ready to play from the get-go, you’ll be eager to unload on your enemies with War Machine’s massive arsenal from the moment you open the box. With tons of powerful weapons and upgrades to play with, War Machine is an awesome hero that is perfectly at home on the front lines.
