Hachette Boardgames will release Vaalbara, a new hand management card game by Studio H, into U.S. retail in May 2023.

In Vaalbara, players have set out with their tribe to explore uncharted lands of this Neolithic world.  They must use the various talents of their tribe members to optimize their tribe's development, expand territory and enforce their hegemony. It is a hand management game where players all have the same deck of 12 cards that represent the members of their tribe.  Players choose one card and reveal it to activate their powers in an attempt to take over on the Territories.  The game ends after 9 rounds, and the player with the most points wins.

This game is for two to five players, ages 10 and up, and plays in 20 minutes.

Hachette Boardgames USA will also release In the Footsteps of Darwin, a rondel tile placement board game by Sorry We Are French, into retail (see "'In the Footsteps of Darwin'").
