Antidote is a semi-cooperative logic and deduction game where players pass, steal and discard samples of what could be the antidote to the terrible toxin that has filled the lab you all work in. Only one of the 8 compounds is the correct antidote, so you will have to watch to see which serums other players keep and get rid of if you want your last card to be the correct type. All the staff members got together to play this on Monday, and we had so much fun.
Stockpile is a game that makes insider trading fun! Each round players will know how some of the stocks will change, but not all of them. Face-up and face-down stock cards will be added to several stock piles and players will have to bid against one another to claim the pile. Some of the piles will be filled with junk stocks or trading fees, and will actually lose money for the player, so you'll need to be a savvy trader to make the most profit.
We have a lot of new Pokémon this week! The new set, Pokémon XY: Fates Collide is here with two new intro decks, booster packs and more. Also available is the Pokémon Mega Mawile EX Premium Collection featuring Mawile EX and Mega Mawile EX. Don't miss your chance at grabbing these cool new cards!
We have a couple of new roleplaying books in stock this week: Kingdom and Dungeon World. Dungeon World is a no-nonsense epic adventure game that is incredibly easy to pick up. If you're looking for a fantasy game to start with your friends that's off the beaten path, look no further. Kingdom, on the other hand, is a less combat-focused game that is more about acting out scenarios and building communities. It's certainly something different than most RPGs, but quite enjoyable nonetheless.
Back in stock: Time Stories, World-Wide Wrestling Roleplaying Game, Eight-Minute Empire and Eight-Minute Empire Legends
