    Camel Up Board Game (2nd Edition)

    ,
    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!

    Andromeda Board Game

    ,
    The far future. Humanity is long extinct. Its place has been taken by many new races from across and beyond this galaxy. Peace is preserved only by the Galactic Council of Elders maintaining a balance of power among ambitious races. And each of these secretly seeks to discover new technologies that would grant them dominion over the Universe. One day, a huge, devastated spaceship appears suddenly in space, with the name "Andromeda" marked on its side. It seems that Andromeda is the abandoned wreck of a spaceship from an ancient, vanished race. Every modern race knows that these Ancients had fantastic technologies far beyond those now known, and many wish to seize the ship's secrets for themselves. The Galactic Council has authorized an exploration team composed of scientists from different races, but while they'll all go aboard together, they each represent a race with its own interests and goals... Andromeda is a board game with an interesting action selection system based on the "I split, you choose" idea. One player rolls dice and splits them into two groups, but another player choses which group will be assigned to which action.

    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.

The idea is that you have decided to play your grandpa’s old arcade machine on a rainy day. You have to try and beat all of the levels in the arcade machine to escape, otherwise it is game over. Each adventure comes as a separate deck of cards. At the start of the adventure the top card which will reveal some clues to get you going. It is then up to you to solve the scenario, whether by combining objects on different cards, or solving puzzles to make a machine work. The solutions are numbers which will lead you to other cards. If you are correct you will unlock new cards. If you are wrong you may get landed with a time penalty. To add tension, the app sets a timer of an hour for you to complete the mystery. You can continue if you have not solved the scenario within the hour but this adds an escape room feel.

    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.
