What’s that clock say? Ten thirty? Yuuuup.

‘Kay, let’s get started.

Two restock items from the same company shipped in today; both are card games, both are colorfully designed.

First up, we’ve got The Big Idea. And what is The Big Idea, you may ask sniddly? Well, I’ll explain. You may be familiar with the game if you ever picked up the previous Cheapass Games version of it. Now, however, The Big Idea has been retooled as a complete party game. Players combine noun and adjective cards to create insane inventions that they then attempt to pitch to the other players. Every secretly votes on the best inventions and who ever ends up with the most approval wins the round. Add drinks and you’re good to go.

For the second I’ll need you pay close attention, ladies and gentlemen. As my lovely assitant takes the stage, please remain utterly quiet.

Yes, Illusio brings the magic, folks! A card game based around a battle of illusion, players choose which famous magician they want to control, then set out to trade off spells, slights-of-hand, and other parlor tricks in an effort to become the top trickster of the 1920′s.

Finally tonight there’s a new Dungeons and Dragons tile set on the block. This time around the setting is Cathedral of Chaos. As always, six tiles, double-sided tile sheets as well as tokens comprise this handy-dandy little supplemental pack.
