Food Chain Magnate is a 2-5 player game about hiring and firing the right people to make your fast food chain flourish. This game is usually incredibly hard to find, Splotter Spellen, the publisher, only make a few hundred copies of their games at a time, and they are sought out by hardcore gamers. We just received four, so if you've been searching for this incredibly rare game, grab it before it's gone!
Covert is a dice allocation game for 2-4 players where you will complete missions by rolling and placing dice on various locations. Players can steal objectives from others by placing a higher die on an objective, but special skills will allow you to subvert your opponents' plans.
Terraforming Mars is a strategic economy and development game for 1-5 players. As competing companies trying to develop the infrastructure needed to support human life on Mars, you will have to gain resources, modify the atmosphere and take on projects that will score you victory points.
Castle Dice is a worker placement game for 1-4 players where your goal is to create the greatest castle. Use your workers to roll dice and gather resources used in the production of your castle. By the end of several rounds, the player that has made the most of their resources and built the best castle wins!
Codenames Pictures is a new game that follows in the footsteps of the original Codenames, players split up into teams and try to guide their teammates to the correct cards by using one word at a time. In this game, instead of trying to get your team to guess which words you want them to pick, you have to get them to choose wacky pictures. This version is just as good as the original...maybe a little bit wackier, but in my mind, that's a good thing.
Twistocity is a wacky tongue-twisting party game. Each player takes a tonguetwister and tries to recite it in a character voice. Pirates, Goblins, Valley Girls...you'll be hearing these voices stumble over their words in an effort to gain points. We saw this game being played at Washingcon, and it was incredibly entertaining.
Dreamwell is a beautifully illustrated strategy game for 2-4 players where each player must navigate though the dream world to find their lost friend. To find your friend, you must visit certain tiles by moving, rotating and playing cards, but other players will be doing the same and might disrupt your plans. The first one to complete their goal wins!
Pin Point! is a game for 1-6 players where you have to quickly find the original image among the other images that are missing pieces. Made by the same people who make Spot It!, another one of our favorites, we're looking forward to bringing this game to the game classes we do for children at local schools.
