    Twin It Party Card Game – Cocktail Games

    , ,
    Flip the card, spot the pattern, give the signal and slap the table. Those are the four techniques you and your teammate will need to learn in order to master the art of Twin it. At first glance, this might seem like an innocent card game for kids and adults, but there's a lot more to this family game than meets the eye. It’s not just about lightning-fast reactions – to capture cards and score points in this card game, you’ll also have to learn how to communicate with your teammate… without alerting the other team. Like most card games, the rules are simple... Each round, a player flips a card from their deck and onto the table, adding another pattern to the collection. Sometimes, these patterns will match; if that happens, slap down on one of the matching cards as quick as you can. Now, you just need your teammate to slap down on the other matching half – before the other team catches on. So, if you’re a fan of family games like Dobble or Uno, this could be the next big hit for you. Easy to learn, quick to play and beautiful to look at, Twin It provides a great stocking filler for children or adults and a hectic experience for Christmas Day… or any other day you feel like putting your Ninja reflexes to the test!

    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.

    Root Board Game – A Game of Woodland Might & Right

    , ,
    Root is a game of adventure and war in which 2 to 4 players battle for control of a vast wilderness. The nefarious Marquise de Cat has seized the great woodland, intent on harvesting its riches. Under her rule, the many creatures of the forest have banded together. This Alliance will seek to strengthen its resources and subvert the rule of Cats. In this effort, the Alliance may enlist the help of the wandering Vagabonds who are able to move through the more dangerous woodland paths. Though some may sympathise with the Alliance’s hopes and dreams, these wanderers are old enough to remember the great birds of prey who once controlled the woods. Meanwhile, at the edge of the region, the proud, squabbling Eyrie have found a new commander who they hope will lead their faction to resume their ancient birthright. The stage is set for a contest that will decide the fate of the great woodland. It is up to the players to decide which group will ultimately take root. Root represents the next step in asymmetric design. Like Vast: The Crystal Caverns, each player in Root has unique capabilities and a different victory condition. Now, with the aid of gorgeous, multi-use cards, a truly asymmetric design has never been more accessible. The Cats play a game of engine building and logistics while attempting to police the vast wilderness. By collecting Wood they are able to produce workshops, lumber mills, and barracks. They win by building new buildings and crafts. The Eyrie musters their hawks to take back the Woods. They must capture as much territory as possible and build roosts before they collapse back into squabbling. The Alliance hides in the shadows, recruiting forces and hatching conspiracies. They begin slowly and build towards a dramatic late-game presence--but only if they can manage to keep the other players in check. Meanwhile, the Vagabond plays all sides of the conflict for their own gain, while hiding a mysterious quest. Explore the board, fight other factions, and work towards achieving your hidden goal. In Root, players drive the narrative, and the differences between each role create an unparalleled level of interaction and re-playability.

    Imhotep Builder of Egypt Board Game

    ,
    Imhotep. The legendary architect of the Egyptian monuments. His awe-inspiring structures and brutal tactics earned him divine status among ancient Egyptians. Can you match his ruthless determination to build the most revered monuments? To do this, you will need to transport stone blocks on ships from your quarry to different construction sites. But you alone do not choose where the ships go. Your opponents have monumental plans of their own and want to prevent your success. A fierce competition for the precious stone resources plays out. Only with the right strategy and a little luck can you succeed. In Imhotep, the players take on the roles of ancient Egyptian architects. Over six rounds, they try to transport their stone blocks to end up in the most valuable positions at five construction sites: pyramid, obelisk, chamber tomb, temple, and market. But a player can only choose one of three actions in a turn: excavate a new stone block from the quarry, load a block onto a ship, or move a ship to a construction site. From there, the massive stone blocks must be unloaded in order from bow to stern and placed on the sites in pre-set sequences. Depending on where the blocks end up, players earn different point values either immediately or at the end of the game. In each turn, you must weigh your options for getting your own stones into place and thwarting your opponents’ placement plans. You must get your blocks to the right places, in the right order, at the right time to be the greatest architect.
