Hanamikoji is a strategic two-player card game where you are a geisha trying to earn the favor of seven geisha masters. Players will decide which of the geisha masters they will try to win the favor of and assign corresponding point cards to that geisha master. Many of the ways you assign cards give some amount of control to the opponent or have an element of secrecy to them, so you'll have to outwit your opponent to win.

Honshu is a 2-5 player tile-laying, trick-taking game with some nice feudal Japanese flavor. Each card has blocks of geographical features that you can lay atop of another to expand your territory. Grouping similar features will benefit you, especially when it comes time to deal the next hand. Careful positioning in the turn order will reward you with greater opportunities, but you'll still need to be smart enough to seize them!

Qwitch is a card game for 2-5 players that feels like if Uno was thrown into the Tilt-A-Whirl. Players will try to get rid of their cards as quickly as they can find a card with a letter or number that is one more than, one less than, or equal to the letter or number on the current card. Which direction the card will go fluctuates as the game goes on, so you'll need some good reflexes to master this fun family game.

When we saw the Marbleocity Dragon Coaster and Marbleocity Skate Park we knew that we would have to open one up. Perfect for the mechanically inclined, these 3D marble runs are a blast to put together and even more fun to watch in action.

The Pokémon Lycanroc & Alolan Raichu Trainer Kit is a great way to learn the Pokémon Collectable Card Game. Two 30-card decks are perfect for head-to-head battles or you can combine the two half decks to make one full deck. With new cards, this set is good for both new players and veterans looking to show their friends the game.

10' to Kill is a logic and deduction game where each player is trying to make their way though a list of assassination targets without being caught or killed by other players. Each assassination must follow very specific rules, so if you watch carefully, you just might be able to pick out the opposing hitmen from the crowd!

The Runewars Miniatures Game is an all-in-one package for fantasy war game enthusiasts. Jam-packed with miniatures, two players will be able to square off against each other with the armies of Waiqar versus the armies of the Daqan Lords. This game is worth it for the miniatures alone, but the fact that this is all you need to fight an epic battle against a friend makes it all the better.

Sea of Clouds is a card drafting and set collecting game. 2-4 players take on the role as captain of a sky pirate ship and must divide loot among their fellow pirate captains. Collect items, relics, rum, and crew to score points or maybe even steal treasure from other pirate ships. Very quick to play, and one of the few drafting games that is just as enjoyable with two as it is with more than two.

EXIT: The Game is a series of escape room style adventures for 1-6 players. Use your wits to solve riddles and logic problems to unlock your escape from The Secret Lab, The Pharaoh's Tomb, or The Abandoned Cabin. These games make a wonderful group activity, and with the ingenious solution checking system, you'll never have to worry about accidentally spoiling one of the challenges.

This Belongs in a Museum is a tile-laying game for 2-4 players. As players add tiles to the map, they will build a world of base camps, airfields, and relics ready to be carted back to museums. Think you have what it takes to be the world's premier adventure archaeologist? Give This Belongs in a Museum a try!

Little Bird Big Hunger is a game for 2-4 players aged three and up. Roll the die, feed your bird and watch them grow! This game is a great way to reinforce counting and identification skills.

The newest Magic: the Gathering set is here! We have Booster Packs, Planeswalker Decks, Deckbuilder's Toolboxes, Bundles, and more for the Egyptian-inspired world of Amonkhet. We also will be selling single cards from the set, so if you're interested in making a deck, check out mtg.labyrinthgameshop.com.
