Alderac Entertainment Group will release three new games in November: Treasure Lair, Istanbul Letters and Seals, and Dice City: By Royal Decree.

In Treasure Lair, players are adventurers seeking to enter the lair filled with treasure. But there are dangerous charlatans and fearsome monsters to overcome. When assembling a party players must consider the skills and abilities the chosen members bring to the adventure.

The box contains 30 action cards, 64 hero cards, 4 starting hero cards, 90 challenge cards, 12 treasure cards, and a rulebook.  The game is for 2 – 4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 30 minutes.  MSRP is $24.99.

Dice City: By Royal Decree is the latest expansion for Dice City (see “'Smash Up Munchkin,' 'Epic Adventure,' 'Dice City'”). The game sees the Queen taking a personal interest in the development of the cities. The expansion comes with a new and separate trade board, extra dice for that board, and new strategies with the Queen’s Plans cards.  The Queen wants buildings constructed in specific places, and trade is very high on her priority list. The new locations require players to be very specific about when they are used.

The box contains 39 location cards, 18 Queen’s plans cards, 12 army strength tokens, a double-sided board and 4 six-sided dice. The game is for 1 – 4 players, ages 14 and up and plays in 45 minutes. As an expansion it requires the base game to play. MSRP is $29.99.

Alderac and Pegasus Spiele will release an expansion for Rudiger Dorn’s award-winning Istanbul board game. Letters & Seals introduces five new places to the game, providing new options to hunt for rubies. Players can deliver letters to the embassy, and parlay that interaction at the auction house and kiosk into useful advantages. The expansion also introduces a companion, which can act independently from the merchant. The expansion can also be combined with the Mocha & Baksheesh expansion (see “Expansion for Kennerspiel Winner 'Istanbul'”).

The box contains 5 place tiles, 24 kiosk tiles, 36 letter tiles, 28 bonus cards, 5 companions, 1 courier, 10 rubies, 12 stickers, a bonus card overview, and a rulebook. The game is for 2 – 5 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 60 minutes. As an expansion it requires the base game to play. MSRP is $29.99.
