Pokemon Construction Kits and Collectibles

Architects of the West Kingdom: Age of Artisans

"In Architects of the West Kingdom: Age of Artisans, journeymen have returned to the city as master craftsmen, equipped with knowledge of new crafts and tools. The Guildhall has never been so busy! While some apprentices spend time learning new skills, others adorn the city’s buildings with everything from golden tapestries, to stained glass windows. But don’t let the shimmer of lights and fancy wares deceive you. For not all that glitters is gold. In addition to including components for an extra player, Age of Artisans adds the new Craft Cards, a dual-layered Guildhall Board, two new Player Boards and a variety of new Apprentices and Buildings" (RenegadeGames).

Fire Tower

"Fire Tower is a competitive game where players must fight fire with fire. Most fire fighting games have a cooperative aspect with players working together to beat back the flames, but in Fire Tower your only objectives are to protect your own tower and spread the blaze towards your opponents. The game plays 2-4 players, ages 12+, and takes 15+ minutes. Action cards allow players to alter the direction of the wind, and add varying patterns of fire, water, and defensive barriers to the board. The skill comes in effectively directing the resources in your hand and using sound spatial planning to deploy them" (BoardGameGeek).

Tiny Park

"The park designer is building a new amusement park. But what's that? You have competitors building their own amusement parks next door. Good planning is half the battle! With the right mix of risk-taking and dice-rolling luck in Tiny Park, who will manage to perfectly place the attractions and complete their construction site first (with no gaps) and be the first to open their park to the happy customers?" (BoardGameGeek).

Rock, Paper, Switch

"Capture your way to victory in this strategy game that combines the concepts of chess with the rules of classic rock-paper-scissors! Remember that paper can capture rock but not scissors as you move across the board, but be ready to improvise: switch tiles can change the game in a single turn! A great introduction to strategy games, Rock Paper Switch develops big picture thinking as you try to be the last player with at least one of each pawn on the board!" (Mindware).

Otter Confusion

"Players must guess which zany otter is in front of them, all while Behavior cards tell them what goofy action they must perform throughout the rest of the game! You otter ask your questions carefully, or you may quickly become a burping cry-baby who talks like a robot! This family-friendly guessing game teaches memory and deduction, and will have everyone laughing by the end" (Mindware).

Slam Cup

"Match the cups then slam them down fast! Slam Cup is an intensely fast speed matching game. Match the color on the inside of your cup to the color on the outside of the top cup on the stack. Then slam your cup on top as fast as you can before someone beats you to it! The first player to stack all their cups is the winner" (BoardGameGeek).

Bye Bye Mr. Fox

"Bye Bye Mr. Fox​ is an adorable cooperative game that teaches young players about teamwork and strategy. Work together to help the hens keep their eggs safe from the cunning Mr. Fox! Spin the spinner and see what will move this turn: an egg, a chicken, or Mr. Fox? Move three eggs into each hen's house to win!" (BoardGameGeek).

Cupcake Academy

"Cupcake Academy is a cooperative game of logic and speed. Work together with your fellow pastry chefs to organize your kitchen based on your instructor’s assignments. Each assignment wants your cupcake cups to be arranged in a specific layout in the kitchen, so you must quickly move the cups to empty plates or on top of smaller cups, one at a time, before time runs out!" (BoardGameGeek).

Starlink

"Starlink is a drawing party game that takes its inspiration from the constellations in the night sky. On your turn, you must try to represent a secret word by drawing straight lines between the stars on the board, and then hope that the other players can guess what you are illustrating" (BoardGameGeek).

Professor Noggin Card Games


We just received some more Professor Noggin games!

Go Cuckoo!

"On your turn in Zum Kuckuck!, you take one standing stick and put it on the nest. If both ends of the stick have the same color, you may choose to lay an egg on it. Otherwise, you take another stick whose top color is the same as the hiding color of the previous one, up to three sticks. After laying an egg or putting the third stick with different colors, your turn ends. There are penalties for a stick touching the ground or eggs falling from the nest. The first person to lay all of their eggs can then put the cuckoo on the nest and win the game" (BoardGameGeek).

New Puzzles

There are a bunch of new kids' puzzles and some more grown-up puzzles as well available in our jigsaw section.

Karuba

"This is a tile-laying race game with players starting with boards that are identical, and one player drawing tiles that they all will use. They race to get their explorers to temples first and earn points. Along the way they can collect additional points by collecting items off the paths they create. The game ends when one player gets all of their explorers to their corresponding temples or whenever the last tile is drawn and placed. Most points wins" (BoardGameGeek).

Quantik

"Quantik is a pure abstract strategy game. The goal is to be the first player to pose the fourth different forms of a line, a column or a square zone. Each turn the players will put one of their pieces on the boardgame. It's forbidden to put a shape in a line, a column or an area on which this same form has already been posed by the opponent. We can only double a shape if we have played the previous one ourself. The first player who places the fourth different form in a row, column or zone wins the game immediately, no matter who owns the other pieces of that winning move." (BoardGameGeek).

Orchard

"Obstgarten is a cooperative game for two or more players aged 3 and up. Only a quick harvesting of the trees carrying crunchy cherries, juicy apples, sweet pears and marvelous plums prevents the snitching of fruits by the impudent and insatiable raven. All players work together to harvest the fruits." (BoardGameGeek).

Rabbit Rally

Rabbit Rally is another beloved Haba game that is now in stock at Labyrinth!

Karuba Jr.

With skill and a bit of luck, you'll be faster than the pirates!" (BoardGameGeek).

Secretly rally rabbit lords and recruit skillful masters to make your cities and resources even more valuable at the end of the game.After each turn, your groups of contiguous warrens grant you points depending on the cities and different resources they include. The game ends after 4 rounds, and the player with the most points wins the game." (BoardGameGeek).

Composition

"Composition is a word spelling, card-drafting game that puts the player in the role of a maestro! Players compose words to earn ovation cards and awards. Whichever player has the most of these cards at the end of the game wins.Each round a number of cards are laid out on the center of the table, with the maestro holding the baton choosing from the selection first. From these, players can choose between a face down crescendo card that costs 5 roses, face up note cards that are free to take, and the ghost note: a wild card that may be played as any letter! Once all available cards are selected, players spell a word. Players resolve abilities on cards, earn roses, and a new round begins!Sometimes players will uncover tomato cards that can really mix the game up, so be sure to read them aloud and make sure their effects aren't getting thrown at you! Some cards also have symbols, which when paired with identical symbols earn the player bonus roses or other boons.The game has a strong music theme interwoven with the cards and concept, and of course the winning player should have a rose or two tossed their way from the others to celebrate their magnificent performance!" (BoardGameGeek).

"Katamino Family is a junior version of Katamino, with two players competing on separate game boards (or possibly one game board divided into smaller spaces) to fill all of the empty spaces first. The game is played over a number of rounds, with each round becoming progressively harder. Katamino Duo also works as a solitaire puzzle, with the solver trying to fit the pieces onto the playing area in different ways." (BoardGameGeek).

Go Ape!

"Go Ape! adds a hilarious twist to the traditional game of Go Fish! Instead of asking other players for a card, you’ll act out the funny monkey picture on the card you want without talking! For example, if you need a card that shows a monkey covering its eyes, you’ll cover your eyes to see if another player has a card that matches. If you want a card that shows a monkey standing on one foot, you’ll stand on one foot. Collect the most monkey matches, and you’re the winner." (BoardGameGeek).

Keys to the Castle Deluxe Edition

"Keys to the Castle is a tile-based game of strategy and luck. Players must open and close doors (the tiles) to move along a path and be the first to cross to the other side. Special cards are played to hacksaw through barred doors, use a skeleton key to unlock padlocked doors, throw a net on a player to stop them in their tracks or use secret passageways to maneuver your way to the other side. The game is easy to learn and quick to play. With the tiles acting as the "board", there is a new outcome to each game every time the tiles and cards are shuffled." (BoardGameGeek).
