Ra is a bidding and set collection game from Asmodee and WindRider. This beautifully redesigned version adds lots of new flavor to a tried and true 2-4 player tile game.

The player with the most valuable set of tiles at the end wins the favor of the sun god.

Kevin and Melissa look at Heroes and Tricks, a 2-6 player trick-taking card game co-designed by Edo Baraf and Jon Gilmour.
Lords of Waterdeep is a no nonsense worker placement game. With solid and enjoyable mechanics, and attractive artwork--the fun in this one rests comfortably in the strategy it takes to collect resources, bonus points, and rewards better than your opponents.
Vikings Gone Wild is a 2-4 player deck building game. Become a viking and pillage the surrounding villages as you grow your own empire.
Tempurra is a new simple card game in which players try to avoid drawing too many cards for fear of over-eating and ending up bloated and gassy. Yep, that's right, those dishes just keep adding up, and at some point you're going to have to draw. If you end up with three gas tokens you lose! With some sickeningly cute artwork, and easy to learn rules, Tempurra makes for a fun filler and conversation piece--it's the cat's meow.
Hoard is a 2-6 player set collection, memory game. Become an adventurer as you gather gold and jewels before the dragon awakes!
ION: A Compound Building Game is a card drafting game where players use their knowledge of chemistry (or visually match "+"s and "-"s) to build neutrally balanced compounds, collect noble gases, and strategically hold on to radioactive materials. Action tiles help shake things up and add another layer of strategy. And slick artwork, accurate scientific principals, and a proven mechanic make this one a great filler, or a perfect game for teachers and students.
Kevin looks at a few board games coming to Kickstarter in June, 2016.
Tesla vs. Edison: War of Currents is a worker placement, bidding, stock market, networking, et. al. board game in which players take on the role of Luminaries from the 1880's trying to outdo each other in the race for AC vs. DC electrical domination...

3 Seeds is a card game for 2-4 players. Will you use your time, money and labor wisely? On Kickstarter until June 9, 2016
Blood & Fortune is a 3-6 player card game full of negotiation, deduction and betrayal. In the game players offer their influence cards to other players in order to gain points--all the while trying to figure out who is winning in order to avoid offering them too much. With optional role cards and special actions, Blood & Fortune is easy to learn and add to as you play, but is tough to master. And did we mention that it looks absolutely gorgeous?!
