New Arrivals 5/24/2016

by Alexander "Four Player Ferris Wheel" Smith

World's Fair 1893 is a set collection game for 2-4 players where your goal is to gain prestige by organizing exhibits for the fair. Send your supporter to the Agriculture, Fine Arts, Transportation, Electricity, or Manufacturing spaces to collect cards and establish a majority in the area for later scoring. We'll be organizing a convention of our own later this year, so maybe this will be good practice for WashingCon!

The Castles of Burgundy Card Game is a streamlined and portable version of one of our favorite modern classics: Castles of Burgundy. If you're looking to play a euro game on the go, you really can't do better than this little gem.

Team Play is a card game that is easy to pick up and fun to play. You'll have to help your partner complete objectives in order for you to win, so there is a lot of teamwork involved. If you want to make it a bit more competitive, or have an odd number of players, the game can also be played without pairing up with a teammate. Definitely give the team version a try though, the game is much more exciting when you have to not only think of what's best for yourself, but how you can make your teammate's goal easier as well.

StoryLine: Fairy Tales is perhaps one of the best implementations of the storytelling mechanic found in Tell Tale and the judging mechanic found in games like Apples to Apples. Players use cards in their hands to complete a Mad Libs style fairy tale, and take turns selecting which option they prefer. In our story, we had an old grandmother who we named "Weird Wendy", and detailed her story about how she overcame her problem of being beautiful with the help of a dragon and a mirror. We thought it was incredibly funny, and I'm sure we'll be playing more of this one.

T.I.M.E. Stories: Under the Mask is the latest expansion pack to the popular time-traveling problem-solving game, T.I.M.E. Stories. This new adventure takes you to Ancient Egypt where an unsolved crime threatens to unwind the future. Do you have what it takes to jump back in time and save the future yet again?

New Pokémon sets are here! The Blastoise EX Red & Blue Collection, Zygarde EX Tin, and Yevetal EX Tin are all now in stock. So if you're looking for these powerful Pokémon, then look no further.

New demos: Norsaga, Brain Freeze, Telepathy Magic Minds, Tapple 10, and World's Fair 1893
