Board Game: Student Bodies
PAX East 2014 was a fantastic event, bringing together gamers and games from around the world, and here's a look at four upcoming games — and one recently released title — that were on display at the show.

Student Bodies

Smirk & Dagger Games and Angry Duck Games have teamed up to bring out Student Bodies, a competitive zombie survival game. The goal is to enter a zombie-infested high school, find a cure for the infection, and make it out alive (locking the door behind you).

Board Game: Hot Tin Roof
Hot Tin Roof

Mayfair Games showed us this new Leo Colovini game it will be releasing in May 2014. Your goal in Hot Tin Roof is to get pairs of your cats together to score victory points, and to do this you need to construct paths across the roofs of a city.

Board Game: Mars Attacks: The Dice Game

Steve Jackson Games has been pulling in some pretty cool licenses as of late, and this latest one for Mars Attacks: The Dice Game has players taking the role of aliens trying to conquer or visit locations from around the world.

Board Game: VOLT: Robot Battle Arena

Taking cues from robot combat TV shows of the 1990s, the fast-paced simultaneous movement game VOLT: Robot Battle Arena is now available. In the title from Nazca Games, you play a robot trying to score victory points by destroying other robots or controlling specific locations.

Board Game: Heavy Steam

GreenBrier Games has grown from a single game at a shared booth to an entire company of its own. For 2014, it was showing off a cool steampunk miniatures game. Heavy Steam combines miniatures combat with a cube management system.
