Every month we get a new batch of games and this month is no different! Check out our first thoughts below, and plan a day to come give them a try!
3 + Players
The game is simple. The current play flips over two cards. The cards represent a person they are going to date. One card is a "perk". Example; They have a pet unicorn named Cinnabun. One card is a "quirk". Example; They collect your tears while you sleep. Now all the remaining players must discuss and vote whether or not the current play will date this person. We've been playing this with friends and staff at the cafe the last couple days, and its great.
Timeline: Historical Events
If you haven't played a timeline game before you are missing out. Flip a card, it will reveal an event, and then your timeline begins. From then on you must get rid of each event card you have by placing it in the right location of the timeline. Its a great game to play while waiting for the rest of your group, or for those history buffs, make a night out of it.
Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game
Deck building, cooperative, light strategy
Have you ever wanted to team up with your friends and have superheros like Captain America, Hulk, and Deadpool at your disposal?! This game lets you do that! Do you like Pandemic or Dominion, and also Marvel stuff, combine those things and you have this game! There is a little bit of setup, but the game is quick to pick up and plays in 30-60 minutes! It's also a lot of fun!
Hand management, strategic, thematic
K2 is the second tallest mountain on Earth and 1 out of 4 climbers perish attempting to make it to the summit. In K2 the goal is simple and brutal; get to the top of K2 and back first, and don't let the mountain kill you. There is a lot of interaction with the other players and the mechanics compliment the theme very well. You'll have to know when to put up tents to avoid storms, when to make a quick dash, and when the steep and slippery path is better than playing it safe. We are really looking forward to people get to experience this one.
In Bezzerwizzer you receive a card that has a number of categories on it. You have point values that you can wages on how confident you are that you will be able to answer the question within each category. There is also a way you can steal other peoples categories if it is a topic you know more about. In all honestly, haven't played it yet, but its pretty legit!
Light Strategy, Economics, Trains
This is one of Joshua's favorite games. Yes that Joshua, the guy who teachers you all the awesome games! In Chicago Express you build railroads, but you also invest in your competitions railroads. The sharpest executives will gain the most from their investments, and thus be victorious!
Cooperative, cards, light strategy
In the Grizzled you take on the role of a WWI French soldier in the trenches. The goal of the game is simple; you and your friends must survive. You and your teammates must get through the deck while dealing with challenges ranging from Mortar Fire to Sleep Deprivation. The artwork is beautiful and the mechanic is interesting. Give it a try!
