    Dixit Board Game

    , ,
    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.

    Marvel Infinity Gauntlet – A Love Letter Game

    The Mad Titan Thanos seeks the Infinity Stones to bend the universe to his indomitable will, but courageous heroes are assembling to stand in his path to ultimate power. Based on the beloved Love Letter card game and set in the Marvel Universe, Infinity Gauntlet: A Love Letter Game features the elegant mechanics of the original, re-imagined in a one-vs-many twist for thrilling team play. While one player takes on the role of Thanos on a crusade to change the universe as we know it, 1-5 other players must deploy iconic heroes to defeat him before he can achieve his aims. Throughout the game, players take turns drawing a card and playing a card, then executing its effect. Hero players can call upon the likes of Iron Man, Spider-man, Thor, and Scarlet Witch for their abilities to battle and gather intel about their opponent’s schemes. A worthy adversary, Thanos plays with a two-card hand, drawing from his own deck of minions and powerful Infinity Stones. The heroes will have to use their abilities in strategic combinations to knock his health down to zero before he can do the same to them, or find all six Infinity Stones and win with a snap of his fingers. Who will prevail in this battle for the universe?

    What Came First – Big Potato Games

    , , ,
    Pick a side. Place your bets Flush toilet or stop sign, mayo or ketchup, Statue of Liberty or Eiffel Tower… reckon you know which came first? Then it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. The more you wager, the more you win and the faster you move around the track – but get it wrong and you’ll be heading backwards in a hurry. The first team to cross the Finish Line wins. The team with the Dealer Chip goes first. They choose to either bet one, two or all three of their chips on the ‘correct’ side of the board. When they’ve locked their bet in, move clockwise around the table until all teams has placed their chips. Teams can risk a side bet if they’re feeling really confident by placing one chip on the Year Circle. If they choose the right side, and guess the correct year, it counts as five extra points. Now flip over the card to reveal the answer. If a team was successful, they move their piece forward the same number of spaces that they bet (plus the side bet if they got it right). If a team bet on the wrong side, however, they move backwards the same amount. For extra strategy and venom, every team is given a secret Time Token. At the beginning of the game, these tokens are dotted facedown around the board. These can be used to give a team a little boost, but some of them are traps. How do you know which is which? You have to land on them to find out! Once all the teams have moved, gather your betting chips, draw a new card and go again.

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!
