What's New at Labyrinth 11/15/2019

Come check out what's new and newly restocked at Labyrinth!



Button Shy Games


We just received several beloved games from Button Shy Games, including Circle the Wagons, In Vino Morte, Sprawlopolis, and Tussie Mussie. Of particular interest to many of our customers, Tussie Mussie is Elizabeth Hargreave's (creator of Wingspan) new game. Coming from an era full of fads such as using tear catchers to determine the length of mourning, Tussie-Mussie is based on the Victorian fad that assigned meanings to the flowers that friends and lovers exchanged. Featuring I-Split-You-Choose drafting, players draw 2 cards and offer one face-up and another face-down to their neighbor. The neighbor takes their choice and the active player receives the other. After everyone has 4 cards, face-down cards are revealed and everyone scores their collection. After 3 rounds the scores are totaled to determine a winner!



Azul Summer Pavilion


In Azul: Summer Pavilion players are tasked to tile the floors of King Manual’s Summer Pavilion – a building intended to honor prestigious members of Portugal’s royal family.  Fans will immediately recognize the core Azul style drafting but will be intrigued by the new scoring mechanisms based on set collection and pattern building. Players will also appreciate the new style tiles found in the box – elongated diamonds and stunning player and scoring boards. Azul: Summer Pavilion is a feast for the mind and eyes! Designed by the world famous, Michael Kiesling and illustrated by acclaimed artist, Chris Quilliams, Azul: Summer Pavilion invites fans of the Azul to return to Portugal. Azul: Summer Pavilion was designed for artisans aged 8 and older. While building the Summer Pavilion would have taken years to do, a game of Azul: Summer Pavilion typically takes about 30 – 45 minutes.



Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated


The 9-to-5 of adventuring can be such a grind. Pesky gremlins, sinister vampires, and a giant dragon all stand between you and the treasure you so rightfully deserve. But you're not in it alone.

In this Legacy game, you'll work with and against your co-adventurers through a 10+ game campaign. Your successes, failures, and choices will permanently affect the game and the world around you as your journey unfolds, resulting in a unique Clank! game you can continue to play after the campaign. The story may end, but the adventure continues!



Clank! In! Space! Cyber Station 11

It is a heavy euro game that blends beautifully with its theme. The game revolves around players running their own fashion companies in a ruthless industry.

Jetpack Joyride


Jetpack Joyride - The Board Game (based on the video game of the same name) is a great way to bring your video game experience to the table and share it with your friends and family.

Everyone plays at the same time by taking pentominoes available in the middle of the table and drawing Barry's path through the lab with them, while trying to grab the Coins and to avoid the Obstacles.

Ankh'or


Ankh'or is a quick-playing resource management game in which each player on their turn either collects three types of tokens (with an ankh being a supplemental resource) or buys a tile from a marketplace and adds this tile to their structure, trying to connect tiles of the same color or bearing the same scarab while doing so. By spending an ankh, you can shift tiles in the marketplace and change the cost and type of goods needed to purchase them. Each player's structure will have at most thirteen tiles, so don't wait too long to start building!



Mandala


In the two-player game Mandala, you are trying to score more than your opponent by collecting valuable cards — but you won't know which cards are valuable until well into the game! Over the course of the game, players play their colored cards into the two mandalas, building the central shared mountains and laying cards into their own fields. As soon as a mandala has all six colors, the players take turns choosing the colors in the mountain and adding those cards to their "river" and "cup". At the end of the game, the cards in your cup are worth points based on the position of their colors in that player's river. The player whose cup is worth more points wins.



Arkham Horror TCG: The Search for Kadath

Silver & Gold


Distant islands, golden treasures - who hasn't dreamed of them?!  You are in luck, because the treasure is in your hands.  You are holding Silver and Gold: pure, addictive gold by Phil Walker-Harding (Sushi Go, Imhotep, Baren Park).  Players must rain X's down, rapid fire, in the right configurations to close out island cards and hit the right bonuses before they can jump to the next card. Silver and Gold is a game of luck, bad luck, quick manipulation and exhilaration.  You've found your fortune!



Black Sonata


In Black Sonata you will find yourself in Shakespeare’s London, circa 1600, in pursuit of the shadowy Lady. A specially ordered deck of cards determines her hidden movements from place to place. You must deduce her location and then intercept her to catch a glimpse and gain a clue to her identity. You will need several clues to deduce her identity, but with each clue gained the Lady becomes harder to track. Black Sonata combines hidden movement and logical deduction into a unique solitaire steeped in literary history.



The Taverns of Tiefenthal


In the village of Tiefenthal lies "The Tavern of the Deep Valley." There, all citizens from the area gather, but it's important to attract new, wealthy guests for only then is there enough money to expand the tavern, which will then lure nobles into the tavern as well. But which tavern expansion is best? Should you focus on money? Or rather ensure that the beer will keep flowing? In The Taverns of Tiefenthal, the challenge is to skillfully choose the dice and develop your personal deck of cards as profitably as possible. The game is structured with five modules so that your group can add extra levels of complexity as you become more familiar with the game.



Tsuro: Pheonix Rising


In Tsuro: Phoenix Rising, two to eight players each control an agile Phoenix. Each turn, you will create a path in front of your pawn, either by placing a new tile or by flipping and rotating the tile in front of you. Following your path, you will transform Lantern markers into Star tokens to score them, and you’ll then choose the locations of new Lanterns. As a Phoenix, you have the power to Rise From The Ashes once per game. Use this ability to return in a strategic position that will allow you to score multiple stars! The player who collects a constellation of seven stars—or is the last Phoenix in the sky—wins the game!

In order to make your mark as well as your fortune, you’ll need to create the most prestigious speakeasy of the time before the 18th Ammendment is repealed. Collect expensive items such as yachts or cars to prove your worth. Invite in well known historical figures of society of the time to class up the joint. Make deals with mobsters while being careful to hide them from view during classy soires lest they detract from your reputation.

Lion in My Way


In Lion in My Way two to five players work cooperatively to problem solve as they use the tool cards they are dealt to creatively handle the obstacles that arise along their path. For instance, one player may have a rocket and the other player may have an umbrella. The obstacle may be a wall or maze. The player with the rocket suggests flying over the obstacle, while the player with the umbrella suggests using the umbrella as a parachute when they fall down on the other side. It is a super fun game for ages five and up that encourages imaginative thinking and ingenuity through teamwork.



Yu-Gi-Oh! Hero Strike Structure Deck

Twilight Struggle: Turn Zero


For those of you who'd like to expand your Twilight Struggle experience, Labyrinth now has in stock the Twilight Struggle Turn Zero and Promo Packs expansions. Each of the two Promo Packs includes four new cards for the game, some including "What if" alternate history additions to the game.

National Parks Trivia


Discover the rich history of the U.S. national parks and challenge your friends and family to a clever game of guesstimation. Each trivia card presents an educational tidbit relating to the national parks, followed by a question. The answers to these questions are always numerical, so players will compete to win the card by writing a number on their whiteboard that they think is closest to the correct answer. This "closest-without-going-over" rule lets players with any level of national parks knowledge stay competitive even with experts in the room. Even if you know nothing about the national parks, you can still play, learn and win!
