WizKids has announced two new games releasing this August:  Zombie Princess and the Enchanted Maze and Free Radicals.

Zombie Princess transforms the knight-saving-princess trope by turning the princess into a zombie who hunts the knights.  Players place and manipulate tiles to create a variable maze, hoping to build a path for their knight to reach the key and reach the three-dimensional castle in the middle of the maze while avoiding the zombie princess.  Any knight caught becomes a zombie as well, turning against the other knights.

Intended for 2 to 5 players, ages 10 and up, Zombie Princess take a little under an hour to play.  The game comes with acrylic standees for the princess and the knights in both normal and zombie form, 1 game board, 48 maze tiles, 4 keys, 1 die, 20 extra action tokens, and a four-piece castle model.  MSRP is $39.99.

In Free Radicals, players assume control of 10 factions that are competing to unlock the secrets of The Sphere, a mysterious structure holding advanced technology.  In this highly asymmetrical game, each faction has its own game mechanics, goals, and driving philosophy, such as Farmers who use domino-style tiles, Couriers who specialize in pick-up-and-delivery, and Artisans who build their own constructs.  Players can earn points by advancing their goals and by helping others reach theirs.

The game comes with more than 300 faction-specific components, 1 main game board, 5 double-sided faction boards, 60 resource pieces, 31 tokens, 50 cards, 5 player aids, and 200 favor cubes.  For 2 to 5 players, ages 14 and up, games take about half an hour to play.  MSRP is $59.99.
