New Things at Labyrinth and Things You May Have Missed in the Last Few Weeks

The Initiative

This is a new, light-weight cooperative board game with unique elements of storytelling involved. 


Aquatica: Cold Waters

The new expansion to Aquatica is here!


Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Blades & Blasters: Bestiary and Rulebook

Check out this super cool book for transitioning from fantasty to scifi fantasy in 5e!


Pathfinder Bestiary 3

Check out this great set of fantastical monsters and creatures for one of the most popular tabletop games of all time!


Nightroot Maze

This cool mini dungeon crawl is compatible with multiple systems and was created by local author, creator, and Labyrinth Alum, Camilla Greer. This is an extremely limited run and the copies are numbered and signed by the author, so grab your copy quickly. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for her other indie projects like Where the Wheat Grows Tall on which she is collaborating with the main creator, Evlyn Moreau. She is also a main contributor to another indie product we sell, The Demon Collective Vol. 1


Avengers Theory 11 Playing Cards

We now have fancy, Avenger-themed playing cards!


Monster Expedition

This is a fun, push-your-luck game that continues within the world of Carnival of Monsters, another great game. In the game you roll dice to determine how many points you have to spend on taming monsters or capturing and caging monsters. Be sure to check it out on our webstore.


Umbra Via

This is an interesting bidding game mixed with tile-laying. Players are vying for control of the pathway on the board in order to retrieve soul tokens from their color board by closing off pathways; however, they have to bid for the direction the pathway takes next. Check it out on our webstore.


M21 Challenger Decks




The 2021 Magic the Gathering Challenger Decks are out and are looking super fun, especially for anyone trying to get into standard on a budget. See which one suits your playstyle by checking them out on our website!


Stuffed Fables: Oh Brother!

The newest expansion to Stuffed Fables is here!


The Whatnot Cabinet

This is a very simple and cute set collection game for 1-4 players. For more details, look at the listing on our website.


Block Chain



These different sets of puzzles provide various challenges for the individual puzzler looking to try something new.


Reprint: Ginkgopolis 

This is a game of hand management and tile-placement to a degree; however, in the game, players pay down a card in the city simultaneously, then pass their hand to the left, so it requires some planning ahead to avoid giving your opponents an easy play.


Food Chain Island

Food Chain Island is a great solitaire card game from Button Shy in which the solo player attempts to reduce a 16 card grid down to one card by having bigger animals eat smaller animals in the food chain. It is a great brain teaser game to carry around and use for a brain break from work.


Maiden in the Forest

This wallet game from Button Shy is an 18-card solitaire puzzle game that uses some pattern recognition as well. 


Skulls of Sedlec

This is an interesting wallet game from Button Shy in which 2-3 players are novice monks attempting to assist with clearing space in the graveyards by digging up current graves and retrieving skulls to arrange in a more economical crypt. 


Fairy Tale Inn

This is a super fun twist on the Connect 4 style sequencing game, except a bit trickier and a lot prettier! In this two-player game, players each sit on one side of the upright grid and take turns placing one of the available fairy tale character tiles in the grid. Each fairy tale character has a different ability or effect when they are played or when they are scored at the end of the game, and when three columns are full the game ends. We've really been enjoying this one here at the store!


Candlekeep Mysteries!

The awesome new Dungeons & Dragons source book is here. This book contains several new one-shot adventures that all take place in or involve libraries in one form or another. This also happens to contain the first wheelchair accessible adventure, so it is an especially appreciated expansion to the most popular roleplaying game.


Meow



Secret Squad


This is a zany new party game in which you'll frantically try to deduce who is friend and who is foe.


Shifting Stones


This is a great mix of visual puzzler and strategy in which you'll try to score certain patterns by shifting and flipping stones; however, your opponents' might shift things out of your favor.

This is a fun, fine-motor control toy. It's a great way to keep kids occupied in the car as it has a plastic cover for the pieces and the magnetic wand is attached by a string. Using the wand, children guide metal balls to the proper garage while avoiding road blocks.


My First Carcassonne 

My First Carcassone is a simplified version of the original Carcassone that limits the number of options available when laying tiles in order to make the game accessible for younger ages. It's a great first tile-laying game perfect for introducing your kids to gaming.

Stories of the Three Coins 

This is a fun, story-telling game in which you must all work together to reach the happiest ending before you run out of ink with which to write your collective story. The game also contains an element of chance in it, as at each juncture of the story the current story teller has three possible next plot points. The story teller whose turn it is must place one coin on each possible plot point card face down. One coin has a book on it, one a single ink drop, and one has two ink drops. The story teller must try to guess which plot point the other players are going to vote for and hope that they don't end up voting for one of the cards with an ink drop coin, otherwise that much ink is lost in the process. 

 

The Key: Sabatoge at Lucky Llama Land

"A series of sabotages has shocked Lucky Llama Land! Multiple attractions at the theme park were tampered with. Players start their investigations and combine clues about the days of the crimes, perpetrators, tools, and crime scenes. They need to generate the right number code and use the key to put the saboteurs behind bars. In the end, it’s not necessarily the fastest investigator who wins the game, but the most efficient one."
