Quickview Board Games, Family GamesFrom designer Matt Leacock, Pandemic: Hot Zone North America is a completely cooperative game in which players win or lose as a team. As members of an elite disease-control unit, you must work together to discover cures to three deadly diseases threatening the continent. Travel from city to city treating cases and preventing outbreaks as you research the cures together. Use your character’s unique abilities and devise a strategy that plays to each player’s strengths - cooperation is key to keeping disaster at bay! Based on the bestselling Pandemic, Hot Zone features the same nail-biting cooperative experience as you play against the game itself, but in a smaller form that you can take anywhere and play in a shorter amount of time. Every game is a challenge that you'll tackle together, working to contain outbreaks and making strategic choices as a team. Can you discover all three cures in time?
Quickview Board GamesAt the dawn of civilization, take the destiny of a whole people into your hands. In front of you, the plains of the Peloponnese stretch out. In the distance, the bright shores of the mythical Atlantis. However, in order to create a stable environment in this promised land, you will need to defeat your enemies, develop technologies, build wonders, and above all pray for the clemency of the gods who watch your every action from on high in their abode on Olympos! (The best way to describe this actually very good game is...Diet Civilization!)
Quickview Board Games, Family GamesWild animals wander across the African plains in their natural habitat. Brave the sweltering sun and join the safari group to explore the plains and spot the many wondrous animals that live there. Climb the baobab tree to get a birds-eye view, walk the trails and spot the animals hiding in the bush, blaze new trails with the ranger vehicles, and dig watering holes where wildlife can peacefully gather. On your journey across the plains, you’ll discover many different animals. Monkeys swing in the trees, lions repose in the shade, and the ground shakes under the thunderous footfalls of elephants. While animals one and all gather at the watering holes; trek out into the bush, lie in wait, and see the majesty of nature unfold. Just like in Carcassonne, you have the option to place meeple on features as you discover them and score points once they’re completed. But with Carcassonne: Safari, variety is key. Keep a keen eye as you continue your exploration. Whoever spots the most animals will amass the most points and be declared the winner!
Quickview Board GamesOnward 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.
Quickview Board GamesIn Flanders Field takes the player to the very heart of what it would have been like to be a CO in the trenches of Flanders. At every move you must make decisions that will determine the fate of the men you command. Your troops must face bombardment from the enemy's artillery, tanks and aeroplanes. How many men will you risk on a particular course of action? A game for 2-4 players where you take a role as a British Company Commander attempting to be the first to reach the "Objective Line". You start from your own trench and must advance across "No Man's Land" while trying to limit your casualties. It's a "push your luck" game where you roll dice and play cards matching the roll, after which you can decide to try to advance further, or stop and carry out card actions. Pushing too far could incur heavy losses. Designed by Martin Wallace in association with the Imperial War Museum.
Quickview Board Games, Family GamesSantorini is an accessible strategy game, simple enough for an elementary school classroom while aiming to provide gameplay depth and content for hardcore gamers to explore. The rules are simple. Each turn consists of 2 steps:
- Move - move one of your builders into a neighbouring space. You may move your Builder Pawn on the same level, step-up one level, or step down any number of levels.
- Build - Then construct a building level adjacent to the builder you moved. When building on top of the third level, place a dome instead, removing that space from play.
Quickview Board Games, Family GamesAs 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.

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.

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!

Quickview Board GamesIn Relic, two to four players each assume the role of a powerful individual from the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and bravely venture forth to shield the Antian Sector from certain doom. By completing missions and claiming victory over enemies, characters gain rewards and experience, including mighty artefacts called Relics, furthering their chance at defeating whatever evil lies beyond the Warp rift. Based on the classic Talisman system, each turn, a player rolls a single six-sided die before moving their playing piece that number of spaces around the board. That player then draws a card or cards to see what they’ve encountered, pitting their heroic persona against foul enemies, dangerous locations, and fantastic strangers. And all the while, these intrepid heroes rise in power, as they work their way toward the ultimate goal at the centre of the board, which could be anything from confronting Kairos Fateweaver, the two-headed Oracle of Tzeentch, to fighting for control over the Lost Flagship of St. Antias. This new 2019 edition by WizKids features improved and expanded highly-detailed busts of the ten available player characters, as well as upgraded punchboard player and scenario cards.
