New releases for the week 2/10/12

Kingdoms

   Designed by Reiner Knizia (Through the Desert, Colossal Arena), Kingdoms is a fast-paced, strategic board game in which two to four players assume the roles of rival kings trying to increase their wealth by establishing castles across the land. By building castles in the richest regions, you stand to reap the most rewards. But build carefully! The most sought after regions may be infested with dragons, trolls, and other hazards that seek to rob your kingdom of its riches.

Hawaii

   In Hawaii the players play the game on a variable game board that is different for each game. Thus, the players must adjust their strategies to the board each game in order to be successful. The player who manages to find the best tactics for the board offered will win the game and the admiration of the other players. The players will need to decide when and what to build, when to buy, and when to wait.

Last Will

   In his last will, your rich uncle stated that all his millions will go to the nephew who can enjoy money the most. How did he want to find this out? Each player is given a large amount of money and whoever can spend it first will be the rightful heir. Visit the most exclusive theatres or eat in the most expensive restaurants. Buy old properties for the price of new ones and sell them as old ruins. Host a huge party in your mansion or on your private boat. Spend like your life depend's on it. Spend to become rich!

Rattus - Africanus

   Rattus - Africanus, a new expansion for the 2010 release Rattus, introduces a caravan and diplomats to add more strategic possibilities to the game. What's more, with the introduction of region cards, players will have more control on possible outbreaks of the Black Death.
   In addition to making Rattus feel like a completely new gaming experience, Rattus Africanus makes it possible to play the game with up to six players.

new in stock: the return of nexus ops!

Nexus Ops

Nexus Ops is a board game of fierce sci-fi battles and fantastic alien creatures in which two to four players control factions of corporate troops and strange life forms on an alien moon. Players deploy troops from their home base to explore the landscape, mine resources, purchase troops, win battles, and fulfill missions, all in an attempt to gather enough power to claim the moon for themselves.

This new edition of this classic title features detailed plastic figures, stunning new art, a clarified rulebook, and a host of optional rules and variants. Race to the monolith in King of the Hill mode, face the peril of the deadly Vortex, or introduce a full set of alternate unit powers!

New releases for the week!

Ora et Labora

In Ora et Labora, each player is head of a monastery in the Medieval era that acquires land and constructs buildings – little enterprises that will gain resources and profit. The goal is to build a working infrastructure and manufacture prestigious items – such as books, ceramics, ornaments and relics – to gain the most victory points at the end of the game.

 

 

Ticket to Ride - India

Embark on a tour of Ian Vincent's India and discover one of the most densely populated and colorful countries of the world. The year is 1911, and the world is changing fast in the British Raj. Will you complete your Grand Tour in time, or lose to more cunning – or simply better connected – opponents?

Also includes Alan R. Moon's terrific map of Switzerland, specifically designed for 2 and 3 players and made famous by Ticket to Ride Online! Discover Switzerland's challenging geography with its verdant valleys and mountain passes, as well as the charm of its neighboring countries.

 

Welcome to Walnut Grove

Walnut Grove is a cross between jigsaw puzzles and worker placement, with the players as farmers who find their plots merging into a single landscape as time passes and their holdings grow. Come fall they must head to the city with their goods as winter will soon return.
