Asmodee Editions has announced two upcoming winter releases designed by Martin Wallace (Brass, Steam): Onward to Venus, a retro sci-fi game featuring art by WETA Workshops, and Mythotopia, a medieval fantasy deck-building game.
Onward to Venus is a tactical area control game set in the retro sci-fi world created by famed artist and designer Greg Broadmore, where planets and moons are just waiting to be settled, civilized, and exploited, if the pesky local inhabitants will behave.  Players take the role of Earth-based empires, out to gain influence over planets and moons by building factories and digging mines over three periods.  Points are awarded at the end based on how much influence a player has on areas of the various planets and moons.  The game features artwork by Peter Jackson’s world-famous WETA Workshops (see "Two-Volume Weta Set").
The box contains: 132 cards, 3 custom dice, 8 wooden components, 12 counter sheets, a player aid card, a cloth bag, and a rulebook. The game is for 2-5 players, ages 13 and up, and plays in 90-120 minutes.  MSRP is $49.99.  Release is planned for Q1.

Mythotopia is a deck-building game based on the award-winning A Few Acres of Snow system (see "A Few Acres of Snow, 2nd Ed.").  Players are new lords in the fantasy realm, who have just inherited a number of scattered provinces. The goal is to expand the empire: building roads, growing towns into cities, and keeping back the dragons and armies that would destroy forward progress.  The game includes random point conditions each time, for good replayability. 
The box contains: player counters (towns, cities, armies, ships, citadels, etc.), victory point markers, victory point counters, reserve cards, player starting card, action reminder cards, province cards, improvement cards, variable victory point cards, fixed victory point cards, a game board, and rules.  The game is for 2- 4 players, ages 13 and up, and plays in 60 -90 minutes.  MSRP is $49.99.  Release is planned for January.
