    How far are you willing to go to solve a crime? Travel to sunny California, and delve deep into the drug-filled Los Angeles of the 80’s. Experience being an L.A. detective and realize that sometimes, just like detective Foley from Beverly Hills Cop, you may need to stretch the laws a bit to suit your needs. Try some controversial methods to solve your case, all the while battling with the red tape of bureaucracy. Use all the new mechanics of Stakeout and Observation to learn more about your suspects. The choices are yours, but are you willing to cross the line? Detective: L.A. Crimes expansion for 1-5 players, will let you play as a group of LAPD detectives working on three different cases, solve them in ascending order because each of them will affect another. Together they form a campaign that will put your skills to the test. Detective: L.A. Crimes expansion is a campaign game. The three cases in the box are connected by one overall narrative thread. While playing, you might find clues that seem unconnected to the current case. Sometimes they are dead ends; sometimes they are clues you will need to solve upcoming cases. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t understand the significance of a clue when you first encounter it. Maybe that information will soon become crucial?

    Imperial Struggle board game

    Imperial Struggle Board Game

    ,
    Imperial Struggle is a two-player game depicting the 18th-century rivalry between France and Britain. It begins in 1697, as the two realms wait warily for the King of Spain to name an heir, and ends in 1789, when a new order brought down the Bastille. The game is not merely about war: both France and Britain must build the foundations of colonial wealth, deal with the other nations of Europe, and compete for glory across the span of human endeavour. Imperial Struggle covers almost 100 years of history and four major wars. Yet it remains a quick-playing, low-complexity game. It aims to honour its spiritual ancestor, Twilight Struggle, by pushing further in the direction of simple rules and playable systems, while maintaining global scope and historical sweep in the scope of a single evening. In peace turns, players build their economic interests and alliances, and take advantage of historical events represented by Event cards. They must choose their investments wisely, but also with an eye to denying these opportunities to their opponent. In war turns, each theatre can bring great rewards of conquest and prestige… but territorial gains can disappear at the treaty table. At the end of the century, will the British rule an empire on which the sun never sets? Or will France light the way for the world, as the superpower of the Sun King’s dreams or the republic of Lafayette’s?

    Viticulture Essential Edition Board Game

    ,
    You find yourself in rustic, pre-modern Tuscany, where you’ve inherited a meagre vineyard. You own a few plots of land, an old crush pad, a tiny cellar, 3 workers…and the dream of owning the best winery in Italy. Your job is to allocate your workers and helpful visitors to complete various tasks throughout the year. Each season is different on a vineyard, so the workers have different tasks they can take care of in the summer and winter. There’s competition over those tasks, and often the first worker to arrive at each one has an advantage over the rest. Using those workers and visitors, you can expand your vineyard by building structures, planting vines, and filling wine orders as you work towards the goal of owning the most successful winery in Tuscany. This essential edition includes the second edition of Viticulture along with several elements from the original Tuscany expansion pack, hand picked by famed designer Uwe Rosenberg. These include Mama & papas, fields (properties), various visitor cards, & automat (solo variant).

    Every picture tells a story – but what story will your picture tell? Dixit is the lovingly illustrated game of creative guesswork, where your imagination unlocks the tale. In this award-winning board game, players will use the beautiful imagery on their cards to bluff their opponents and guess which image matches the story. Guessing right is only half the battle – to really succeed, you’ll have to get your friends to decide that your card tells the story! Every turn, the storyteller will call out a short phrase or word to match the image on his card. Then each player will choose the card that most closely matches that phrase, and then everyone must guess which card the storyteller saw when he invented his brief tale. Correctly guess the storyteller’s card, and you’ll move ahead. Convince everyone else that your card is best, and you’ll do even better. Dixit is a wonderfully simple game, playable by nearly anyone with whom you share a common language. With a fantastic range of beautiful illustrations and rules that can be understood by children and adults alike, Dixit will appeal to anyone with an imagination. It’s no surprise that Dixit won the Spiel de Jahres award for game design in 2010. It is brilliant and simple, beautiful and imaginative, and fun for all.

    You are crew members on a passenger plane bound for Barbados. You have flown this route countless times already. Of course, you have experienced everything possible (and impossible) on these flights: technical malfunctions, turbulence, tour groups who are also flying to Hamburg, Berlin, London, or Amsterdam in order to visit so-called “escape rooms” there… But what’s waiting for you today is going to leave everything else in the dust. The weather service already announced that things might get a “little rough,” but now you find yourself in the kind of electrical storm that can easily throw even an experienced crew into a state of panic. The clouds are almost black, flashes of lightning rip through the dark sky, and rain pounds the engines. Suddenly, an alarm light comes on…and another…and you have a queasy feeling that the rest of the flight might become the greatest adventure that you have ever experienced. Escape room game with a difficulty level of 2 out of 5. **NB: This game can only be played once, because you mark up, fold and tear the game components...but it makes a great evening of entertainment while you do that!**

    Targi: The Expansion

    In this expansion, the original gameplay is both expanded and improved with new tribe cards, border cards, sand dune cards, water tokens, and a special Targia pawn — all of which combine to make a great game even better. The Targia presents an exciting twist to the original game as she moves opposite the robber and uses her abilities to upgrade the effects of the border cards. The addition of water tokens presents a host of refreshing new possibilities to the game, while the new sand dune cards allow a Targi to gain a unique advantage if they travel to an outlying sand dune — but they may miss a valuable action in the center play area as a result!

    In Camel Up, players bet on five racing camels, trying to suss out which ones will place first and second in a quick race around a pyramid. The earlier you place your bet, the more you can win - should you guess correctly, of course. Camels don't run neatly, however, sometimes landing on top of another one and being carried toward the finish line. Who's going to run when? That all depends on how the dice come out of the pyramid dice shaker, which releases one die at a time when players pause from their bets long enough to see who's actually moving! This 2018 2nd edition of Camel Up features new artwork, a new game board design, a new pyramid design, engraved dice, and new game modes, including crazy rogue camels that start the race running in the opposite direction! You never know how a race will end!
