    Agricola: Family Edition

    , ,
    Your goal is to build a farm for yourself and your family. At the start, you just have a wooden house with only two rooms, providing shelter for your first two people (the farmer and his spouse). During the course of the game, you can add more rooms to your house in order to grow your family. The more people you have, the more actions you can take. But you also have to feed your people during the harvest. To do so, you will need to plough fields and breed animals. Certain improvements may help you with that. After 14 rounds, the game ends. The player whose farm is worth the most points wins. This game takes the best of the popular classic Agricola and makes it more accessible for the entire family.

    Onward To Venus board game
    Quickview

    Onward To Venus

    ,
    Onward to Venus is based on the Doctor Grordbort graphic novels from writer/artist Greg Broadmore, with those books being a parody of sorts of the British Empire in the late 19th century, but instead of the race for Africa, we now have the exploitation of the Solar System, which is populated by various natives who resent the Earthling settlers. The game Onward to Venus takes lots of artwork from the books and mixes it together to create an empire-building game set in the Solar System. The core rules are fairly straightforward, and a game can be completed in 90 minutes. The game is played over three turns; in each turn you whizz around the planets and moons claiming tiles. The tiles grant you cards, allow you to build a factory or mine, let you hunt strange beasts, or simply earn you some money. Other tiles allow you to attack other players or add to the crisis level on the planet/moon in question. You have to be careful with crisis tiles as if you let too many build up, bad stuff - Martian invasions, robot rebellions, space pirates, etc. - starts happening. Designed by Martin Wallace.

    Carcassonne: Amazonas Board Game

    As you venture into the South American rainforest, river and jungle alike abound with colourful wildlife that create a spectacular panorama. But you have little time to appreciate the serenity of the moment: Others are heading into the wilderness to build camps and explore down the river. The race is on! Carcassonne: Amazonas sends you on a journey down the Amazon as you fill in the river and surrounding areas, one tile at a time. Along the way, discover many wonderful secrets deep in the rainforest. Ultimately, it is up to you to decide whether you want to place your meeples or camps on the features you discover, or if you want to forge ahead of the competition and push farther down the river. Whoever amasses the most points on their journey will be declared the winner! All sorts of things are waiting to be discovered in the jungle. On your journey, you’ll come across many animals, visit villages, and walk along the many tributaries of the Amazon River. Just like in Carcassonne, you have the option to place meeples on these features as you discover them and score points once they’re completed. But with Carcassonne: Amazonas, it takes more than just cunning tile placement to win - it’s also a race down the Amazon River itself. When a tile is added to the river, the player whose boat is farthest down the river scores points equal to the number of piranhas and caimans that appear on that tile. To become a legendary explorer, you'll need to strike the right balance between placing your meeples and camps and staying ahead of the competition! Carcassonne: Amazonas is the third title in the "Carcassonne Around the World" series.

    Ex Libris Board Game

    In Ex Libris, you are a collector of rare and valuable books in a thriving fantasy town. The Mayor has just announced a new seat in the Village Council, Grand Librarian. The prestigious and lucrative position will be awarded to the citizen with the most extraordinary library! Unfortunately, several of your book collector colleagues (more like acquaintances, really) are also candidates. To outshine your competition, you’ll need to expand your personal library by sending your trusty assistants out into the village to find the most impressive tomes. Sources for the finest books are scarce, so you’ll need to beat your opponents to them when they pop up - especially if they match your library’s secret focus! You only have a few days before the Mayor’s Official Inspector comes to judge your library, so be sure your assistants have all your books shelved in time! She is a tough cookie, and will use her Official Inspection Form to grade your library on several criteria including alphabetical order, shelf stability, prominent works, and variety. And don’t think she’ll turn a blind eye to books the Council has banned! You’ll need shrewd planning, cunning tactics, and perhaps a little magic to surpass your opponents and become Grand Librarian!
