Small World Board game

Small World is inhabited by a zany cast of characters such as dwarves, wizards, amazons, giants, orcs, and even humans, who use their troops to occupy territory and conquer adjacent lands in order to push the other races off the face of the earth. Picking the right combination from the 14 different fantasy races and 20 unique special powers, players rush to expand their empires. Yet they must also know when to push their own over-extended civilization into decline and ride a new one to victory! A race in decline is designated by flipping the tiles over to their black-and-white side. At the end of your turn, you score one point (coin) for each territory your races occupy. After the final round, the player with the most coins wins.

Dominion: Intrigue 2nd. Ed....

Dominion: Intrigue (Second Edition), an expansion for Dominion or Dominion (Second Edition), contains 26 Kingdom card types that can be used with the base game. It no longer has Basic cards and thus is no longer a stand-alone expansion; to expand to 5-6 players, use Base Cards. Dominion: Intrigue (Second Edition) replaces six Kingdom card types from the first edition with six new types of Kingdom cards, while also replacing the blank cards in that item with a seventh new Kingdom card; these new cards are also available on their own in the Dominion: Intrigue Update Pack. In addition, the rulebook has been rewritten, one card has had a mild functional change (Masquerade skips players with no cards in hand)

King of New York Board game

King of New York keeps the core ideas of King of Tokyo while introducing new ways to play:your goal is to be the first monster to collect 20 victory points (VPs) or to be the last monster standing. What's new in King of New York is that you can now try to become a star in the big city - you can achieve "Fame", which nets you VPs, but superstar status is fleeting, so enjoy your time in the spotlight. The game board for King of New York is larger than in KoT. When you attack, you can displace a monster in another district, whether to escape military forces or to find new smashing opportunities. The monsters from King of New York can be used in KoT and vice versa, but the power cards are specific to this game.

Evolution: the Beginning...

In Evolution: The Beginning, you'll adapt your species to succeed in a dynamic ecosystem where food is scarce and predators roam. Traits like Flight and Horns will protect your species from Carnivores while a Long Neck will help them get food that others cannot reach. With hundreds of ways to evolve your species, every game unfolds in a beautifully unique way.

Evolution: The Beginning borrows ideas and concepts from other games in the Evolution branded product line, but it is a stand-alone game that is not compatible with anything else in the Evolution product line. It is the most casual and quick playing adaptation of the Evolution concept, but it is highly strategic as a two-player game.

Akrotiri board game

Akrotiri places you in the role of an explorer in Classical Greek times, combing the then-uncharted Aegean sea for lost Minoan temples. You've not only heard of these temples hidden around the island of Thera, but you actually have access to the secret maps that tell you of their hidden locations. But running an expedition can be costly. In order to fund your voyages into the unknown and excavate the ancient temples, you will have to first ship resources found on surrounding islands back to the resource-poor island of Thera. In Akrotiri — which combines tile placement, hand management, and pick-up and delivery — players place land tiles in order to make the board match the maps that they have in hand. Players excavate temples; the ones that are harder to find and the ones further away from Thera are worth more towards victory, but the secret goal cards keep everyone guessing who the victor is until the end! May the gods forever bless you with favorable winds!

Change Horses Board game

Change Horses Board game

Change Horses is a race game with a twist. Players secretly get a horse (of a particular color) assigned before the game starts. The player with the horse in last place at the end of the game wins. On your turn - sequence of play is decided by auction - you play a card that controls two different colored horseS. When every player has put down cards, the horses move; but only horses with an odd number of cards on the table! If the number of open cards is even, the horse does not move. But, true to the spirit of horse racing, each player has a chance to play a "dirty trick", including Change Horses. This can affect the game dramatically.

Jaipur card game

Jaipur is a fast-paced card game, a blend of tactics, risk, and luck where you are one of the two most powerful traders in the city of Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, but that's not enough for you because only the merchant with two "seals of excellence" will have the privilege of being invited to the Maharaja's court. You are therefore going to have to do better than your direct competitor by buying, exchanging, and selling at better prices, all while  keeping an eye on both your camel herds.

GIPF Board game

GIPF is a strategic game for two players based on a classic concept: In turns, players introduce one piece into play until achieving four-in-a-row. Players then remove their row and capture any of their opponent's pieces which extend that row. This principle of capturing pieces creates each time again completely changed situations on the board. The purpose is to form successive rows of at least four pieces, until the opponent has no piece left to bring into play. GIPF is not only the name of a game, but of a project as well. This project concerns a group of games and extra pieces that will follow step by step. Each game of the project will be playable either separately, or, by means of extra pieces, in combination with GIPF. It concerns a system that makes winning or losing GIPF-related games a strategic factor of the game GIPF itself.

Roskis Board game

Players in Roskis need to toss trash into the garbage bin, but unfortunately they're all a bit lazy and instead of emptying the bin when it's full, they're content to pile everything as high as possible in the hope that someone else will knock it over and have to clean up the mess.  Before the game begins, each player takes a set of cards numbered 1–10, and the forty pieces of "trash"—milk cartons, tin cans, bottles, and apple cores—are placed next to the garbage can. Each round, players secretly choose one of the three cards in their hand, then reveal them simultaneously. In order from low number to high, each player places a number of pieces of trash equal to the number she revealed into—or onto—the garbage bin...

My Happy Farm Board game

All players have their own farm with four nice animals. They feed those cuties. Animals that are fed well fill their stomachs with tasty food, grow and become longer and longer, even reaching unnatural lengths. The longer your animal, the better a farmer you are. The owner of the longest animal receives bonus points. Animals that aren't fed even one time lose their weight, take offense, and leave their bad master. Moreover, they will take some victory points from the bad master to punish him, so players have to be good and careful farmers and feed their animals well to create Their Own Happy Farm.

Resistance Coup Card game

In the political card game Coup, you want to be the last player with influence in the game, with influence being represented by face-down character cards in your playing area. Each player starts the game with two coins and two influences – i.e., two face-down character cards; the fifteen card deck consists of three copies of five different characters - Duke, Assassin, Contessa, Captain, Ambassador - each with a unique set of powers. On your turn, you can play the character, regardless of which characters you actually have in front of you, or you can take one of three other actions: take the coin, take two coins or launch a coup against an opponent, forcing that player to lose an influence. If you do have the character in question and choose to reveal it, the opponent loses an influence, then you shuffle that character into the deck and draw a new one, perhaps getting the same character again and perhaps not. The last player to still have influence wins the game!

Brix Board game

Brix brings a new dimension to tic-tac-toe, with players building a wall of X and O bricks by stacking their pieces on top of each other. The first player to align four of their symbol or color in a row wins the game. In more detail, the bricks are effectively two cubes pushed together, with half the brick being orange and the other half blue; when an orange face shows an X, the blue face shows an O and vice versa. Each turn the active player adds one brick to the wall either vertically or horizontally, with each new brick connecting to existing bricks on at least one face and at most eight symbols in a horizontal row. If no one has won by the time that all bricks are in the wall, then on their turn players remove one brick and place it in a new location; if you knock the wall over on your turn, you lose.

Triarchy Board game

Since ancient times along the Nile, the Eye, Scarab and Snake vie for positional advantage. Be the first to reach your home base in the sands of Egypt. But beware, sandstorms can literally change your world. Each player has 8 tokens and one home base. Players roll 4 tokens and move 4 tokens, including their own and those of their opponents in order to get their tokens home first. But even the best laid plans can be upended when a player rolls a “sandstorm”. This is an abstract game of simple rules and greater depth than one might expect at first glance. Elements of many classic designs are echoed here, the result is a fresh synthesis of luck, maneuver and skill. It’s one of the very few abstract games that works equally well with two or three players.

Schotten Totten card game

In Schotten Totten, nine boundary stones lie between you and your opponent. In front of each, you build poker-like formations of three cards aside. Whoever plays the higher-ranking formation wins the stone. And in a unique twist, you may use your powers of logic to claim a stone even before your opponent has played all three of his cards, by demonstrating that the stone is impossible for him to win. Successfully claim five stones, or any three adjacent stones, and you win the game.

SWAT! Card game

SWAT! - party card game about capturing cards. A dealer turns over cards one-by-one until someone decides he wants the exposed cards and hits the colorful "SWAT!" board. That player then becomes the dealer and the same process continues until all players have "swatted" three times or the deck runs out. Your challenge is to remember what you have already swatted and decide how far you can push your luck before another player swats the stack. The artwork is fun, imaginative, and might get a little bit under your skin!
