Renegade Games
New from Renegade Games is Honshu, a map building card game for 2 to 5 players.

Honshu is played in rounds, with each round is divided into two phases. During the first phase, Map cards are revealed and the player who played the highest value card gets to pick first from those played. In phase two, the players use their chosen Map card to expand their personal maps. Each player must expand their personal maps to maximize their scoring possibilities. After 12 rounds, players will score points for lakes, forests, residential areas, and production of goods within their city. 

Manipulating your position in the player order is crucial for mastering Honshu.

Blue Orange Games
Kingdomino is a tile-laying family game for 2 to 4 players that plays in 15 to 20 minutes.
Each turn, connect a new tile to your existing kingdom, making sure at least one of its sides connects to a matching terrain type already in play. The game mechanics for obtaining the tiles is clever: the order of who picks first depends on which tile was previously chosen. Make sure to secure tiles with crowns- these royal treasures help to multiply the worth of your kingdom at the end of the game! The game ends when each player has completed a 5×5 grid, and then points are counted based on number of connecting tiles and crowns.
