What's New At Labyrinth: 6/28/19

What's New At Labyrinth: 6/28/19

We got a massive influx of new games this week, so come on in and test them out! But first I wanted to bring up a recently back in stock game that everyone has been asking for...

Root


Root and its Riverfolk expansion are both finally back at Labyrinth! In this asymmetrical game, players take control of one of four factions (six with the expansion) looking to maintain or retake control of the woodlands. Each faction not only plays differently but also has different win conditions, making Root a highly replayable adventure!

Maskmen


Welcome to the world of Pro Wrestling! Players use cards of the same wrestler type to determine their strength and try to get rid of all their cards first to gain the most points. After four seasons/rounds a winner will be declared!

Proving Grounds



Proving Grounds is a real-time solitaire dice game that merges narrative and gameplay in a brand-new way. In this box, you will find a novella, "Only the Strongest Has the Heart of a Wizened Queen", written by Monica Valentinelli. This sweeping story sets the stage for the events of the game. Read the story of Maia Strongheart as she fights to ascend to the Sun Throne, then recreate her extraordinary battle!

ShipShape


In ShipShape, 2-6 players each control a ship. Over the course of three voyages (rounds), you bid using numbered crew cards to claim unique crate tiles off the central stack. Fill your hold with gold, cannons, and contraband and cover up what you don't want. At the end of each voyage, score coins by comparing your holds with everyone else, looking only at what is visible in your hold. The player who amasses the biggest bounty will be declared the greatest smuggler SEA CAPTAIN of all time!

Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Inc. Upper Management Pack



Some thieving jobs deserve a professional approach. When you absolutely must acquire it, call Acquisitions Incorporated! This renowned multi-planar corporation has years of experience snagging all the loot that isn’t nailed down. Each Upper Management character comes with a unique deck reflecting their talents. Use them in the original Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure, or with a franchise established in Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated!

Arraial



"Arraial" is the name given to traditional Portuguese summer celebrations during which people take to the streets eating, drinking, and having fun in the old neighborhoods. In the game Arraial, players try to make their neighborhood traditional event the most popular by attracting visitors to their celebration. Grab the most beautiful decorations, hire the most inspired performers, serve the most traditional delicacies, take to the streets, and host the party of the year!

Spymaster


As the head of a shadowy intelligence agency, you must manipulate agents around the world, using valuable intelligence to complete missions. Each round begins with intelligence being gathered using the "I split, you choose" mechanism, with the spymaster player divvying the available intelligence cards into files, after which the players go around and take one stack in clockwise order, ending with the spymaster. By playing intelligence cards from hand, players take turns moving agent meeples — both their own and ownerless freelance agents — into position so that they can control the areas, meet mission requirements, and claim the mission cards.

Everyone Loves A Parade



It's a beautiful day, and everyone in your hometown is excited to watch all the fun, pageantry, and spectacle of the upcoming parade! But first, the floats that will thrill the crowd must be built... and the one who crafts the most exciting floats will become the Grand Marshal! In Everyone Loves A Parade, 2-6 players act as float designers, selecting colorful decoration cards (flowers, balloons, and flags) to add to their floats and wow the crowd, which is represented by dice showing colors and items they wish to see.

Menu Masters



It's a fine dining frenzy! In Menu Masters, you are a world-class chef, brimming with ideas for the greatest menus ever crafted, but the only way to become the Menu Master is to beat the other chefs to Market Street for the freshest, most delicious ingredients! You may choose to open a store to earn some money...or just grab your shopping basket and be the first in line at the market. It's the only way to get the best selection! But beware of the other chefs as they drive up demand and increase prices! Earn your stars in this deliciously fun race to gourmet supremacy, proving you are the greatest of menu masters!

Shutter Bug



1932! The world is fascinated by growing rumors of hidden creatures that roam America. Popular tabloids are desperate for photographs of these mysterious beasts to prove the myths and sell tabloids. That's where you come in: As a freelance photographer looking to make a name for yourself, you must follow tips that have you scouring the country hoping to snap the pictures the tabloids desire. When your deadline arrives, you will sell your portfolio to score big! Now grab your camera and field notes, stay one step ahead of your rivals, and race to a photo finish as the greatest shutterbug of all time!

Capital City



Howdy, partners, and welcome to Capital City! In this fast-playing card game, you've got one year to help build the most famous town in all the West! Each season, the train brings in city slickers and kinfolk from the east to help you run your new businesses on Main Street. Hire your workers carefully, keeping in mind that members of the same family help each other reach success faster! Dollars are useful, but victory points (VPs) are like pure gold! At the end of the year, the player with the most VPs wins the game and becomes the new Mayor of Capital City!

Hive Mind



Up in the hive, the bees are trying to prove to the Queen Bee that they deserve to stay! During the game, the players must be harmonious in answering intriguing questions based on their experience and opinions. The more answers they have in common with other players, the more points they get! Represented by bee pawns called Beeples, players move through the hive; those who score the fewest points each round must move closer to the hive exit. As soon as one or more bees exit the hive, the game ends. All the remaining bees win and survive the winter!

Running With The Bulls



Get ready to embark on the craziest vacation ever! A herd of mischievous bulls has taken over the quaint town of El Toro, and players must outrun & outwit them in order to get to the fabulous destinations on the coast. Skillfully play cards to dodge the rascally bulls as they chase you through the streets. The dice themselves are the Runners, and you must manipulate them to determine both their paths & those of the Bulls themselves. It's all a bit like strategic pachinko! With a bit of planning & lot of luck, you’ll reach your spectacular getaway while Running with the Bulls!
