VCK: Shadowvale & Songbirds both release to retail today!

Today is the retail release date for both Valeria: Card Kingdoms - Shadowvale and Songbirds! If you missed the Kickstarters for either, now is your chance to grab them from your friendly local game store or favorite online shop. Let’s take a look at these two games.

Valeria: Card Kingdoms - Shadowvale: Darkness looms upon the Kingdom of Valeria. Werewolves, Vampires, and other shadowy creatures reach out in the night to tear apart your people. But never fear, new Citizens have joined the fray - some specializing in taking out these dark creatures! Valeria: Card Kingdoms - Shadowvale brings in a whole new set of Citizens, Monsters, Domains, and Dukes that you can play stand-alone using components from the base game, or mix with card stacks from the base game and previous expansions for all new experiences.

Overall, put our group solidly in the camp of enjoying this expansion a great deal. Fresh art, new abilities, interwoven into a solid game that remains one of our favorites.” - Arkobla Conn (BGG user)

Songbirds: As a forest spirit, you help your favorite songbird color prosper in secret. Each turn, you’ll place one songbird with a specific volume into the forest. The volume of each songbird will add to those of the same color in rows and columns. The songbird color with the loudest volume wins the berry token in the respective column or row. If there is a tie, the songbird color with the next loudest volume wins. When the whole forest is filled with songbirds move on to end-game scoring. At the end of the game, you reveal the last remaining songbird card in your hand. This is your favored songbird and you score the points that the songbird color collected in berry tokens and add in the volume of your favored songbird. The player with the most points wins the game!

"The game looks very attractive. It's very clean, it's very crisp... and the more you play especially, there is going to be a little brain burning going on. Which is nice to say about a game this small." - Zee Garcia (The Dice Tower)
