Pandasaurus Announces New Localization, Two Game Expansions To Hit Retail At End Of Year

There is not “quiet season” for games companies, and Pandasaurus Games (Dinosaur World, Brew) have proved that by revealing three new releases scheduled to hit store shelves in Q4 of 2022. The first is Orichalcum, a new localization of French game Orichalique focused on the Ancient Atlanteans. They’ve also announced new expansions to time-travel game The LOOP and Sobek: Two Players that add new components and mechanics to those games. Check out all the details below:


Orichalcum from Pandasaurus box art
  • 2-4 players
  • Ages 12+
  • 45-60 min
  • MSRP $49.95
  • Designer: Bruno Cathala & Johannes Goupy
  • Artist: Paul Mafayon
  • Mechanics: Action drafting, race, tile placement, tug-of-war
  • Release date: Q4 2022

The prophecy of the Atlanteans is about to come true: the cataclysm is imminent! You have been sent by your people to search for a new welcoming land. As the head of the expedition, it is up to you to explore, exploit, and free the island from its monstrous creatures in preparation for the great exodus. You have to be the first to find a new land for your civilization!

Orichalcum game contents

Orichalcum (formerly known as Orichalique) is a race against your opponents. Whoever is the first to collect 5 Victory Points above their board and eliminate all Creatures on their island will be the winner! There are three ways to earn victory points: draw the attention of Titans, erect Temples and forge precious Orichalque medallions – that legendary metal that only the Atlantes know how to extract.

Sobek 2 Players: Treasures of the Pharaoh

Sobek 2 Players: Treasures of the Pharaoh from Pandasaurus box
  • 2 players
  • Ages 10+
  • 30 min
  • MSRP $14.95
  • Release date: Q4 2022
  • Requires Sobek: 2 Players to play

This expansion introduces new, highly coveted Pharaoh tiles on the Market board. These extraordinary items obviously shine with their value, but also with their flexibility as they can be included in either of the two types of goods that they depict. However, they are a direct source of corruption!

Sobek 2 Players: Treasures of the Pharaoh game components

There are also new Character tiles that tie in with the Pharaoh tiles and 2 new Pirogue tokens, both of which are sure to enrich your Sobek: 2 Players experience.

The LOOP: The Fur Brigade

The LOOP: The Fur Brigade from Pandasuaurus cover
  • 1-4 players
  • Ages 12+
  • 60 min
  • MSRP $19.95
  • Release date: Q4 2022
  • Requires The LOOP to play

In this new expansion for The LOOP, we’re bringing the legendary Fur Brigade back together again! Play as Catruman the Black, king of the catgicians and Arsène Lupus the were-gentlewolf to go scratch at Dr Faux’s door.

We’re also introducing the Charcoal 14 Tele-travel Micro-stations! Leave the Charcoal 14 black cubes around the board and spend them to transport directly to that Era. New Artifact cards are included and we introduce a new card/”Dimension” type — the Voidhole Dimension provides powerful actions but are removed from the game after use.
