At the International Toy Fair going on now in Nuremberg, Germany, Gen42 Games is showing new versions of Hive and Junkyard Races. Hive is a quick but fantastic abstract strategy game that recently also appeared on the iPhone. Hive Carbon provides an alternative to the existing set of pieces for those who prefer a classic black and white color scheme.

Junkyard Races is a game where players rush to collect crazy parts for tricking out their racing carts—like jet engines, missiles, and robotic mallets—while keeping other drivers from doing the same. The new version is extensively revised from the earlier edition. This one has new rules, new art, a two-sided board, and accommodates up to eight players.
