Brick PartyIn our world of Minecraft and 90’s nostalgia, nothing makes me more excited than the possibility of playing with legos! Brick Party is a fun and frenzied game of brick building that takes you and a teammate through a wild round of assembly. Reveal the special rule for the round and build the chosen shape faster than your opponents, using only the directions given by your teammate and the restrictions given by the rules for that round.

 

Players: 2-9
Time: 15-30 Minutes
Ages: 5+
Type: Cooperative, Party Game, Dexterity

Arena of the PlaneswalkersHot off the success of their new card expansion, Magic: The Gathering continues their brand expansion by bringing their Lovecraft inspired universe, Shadows over Innistrad, straight into the realm of board games. In this standalone expansion to Arena of the Planeswalkers, players customize their battlefield by placing different terrain around the map and leading their Planeswalkers and legions of creature allies around, attempting to cast spells and dominate the board. Last Planeswalker standing is deemed the victor!

Players: 2-4
Time: 60 Minutes
Ages: 10+
Type: Fantasy, Grid Movement, Dice Rolling, Miniatures

 

Archer Love LetterArcher: Once You Go Blackmail… is a new variation of the classic Love Letter game engine — except with far more ARCHER! Each player starts the game with a character card in hand. On a turn, a player draws one card, then plays one of their two cards, activating whichever card they chose to play. The goal is to knock other players out of the round, or to have the highest number of cards in hand when the round ends. Win enough rounds, and you win the game! Have I mentioned Archer?

 

Players: 2-4
Time: 10 Minutes
Ages:10+
Type: Card Game, Hand Management, Player Elimination

Dead Last

Looking for a great game to fit that awkward 6-12 player category? Something involving murder and mayhem perhaps? Dead Last is a game of social collusion that rewards betrayal, shifting alliances, and murder for profit! Each round players may use any type of communication — glances, a nod, outright pointing, in order to conspire and vote on who to kill. Try not to make things too obvious, or your whole plan could backfire! Whoever makes it through to the end alive, gets the gold!

 


Players:6-12
Time: 45-60
Ages: 14+
Type: Bluffing, Murder/Mystery, Party Game

Dice Heist 2

Let’s continue this week of questionable morality, by talking about the game Dice Heist. In this game you dive into the role of an international thief, attempting to steal the world’s most valuable artifacts, gems, and paintings. Whether it’s robbing the Louvre in Paris, or the Metropolitan Museum of art in NYC, your job is to get in and get out with the most impressive and valuable collection of priceless treasures! Recruit sidekicks, rip apart some security systems, and roll some dice!

Players: 2-5
Time: 20 Minutes
Ages: 14+
Type: Dice Rolling, Set Collection

Exploding Kittens

“A kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette”. Exploding Kittens is a game that has alluded the shelves of physical game stores for quite some time, but it’s here now! Take turn drawing cards with your comrades until someone draws an exploding kitten and is abruptly eliminated. As the game goes on, few cards are left in the deck, which means a greater chance of drawing an exploding kitten!

Players: 2-5
Time: 15 Minutes
Ages: 7+
Type: Party, Press Your Luck, Hand Management

Formerly exclusive to a certain big box store that shall not be named, Star Trek Catan has hit warp ten and materialized on the Pulp Fiction shelves!  This version plays like the extremely popular base game excepted for an added mechanic called Support Cards and an entire thematic redesign to accommodate the source material.   The source cards are distributed at the beginning of the game, and add extra benefits to each action.

Another twist in the bend that is railroading board games, Trains and Stations is a massive resource management game from WizKids.  This family friendly railroader has players acting as railroad barons, laying track, constructing buildings, and organizing many other aspects of the business, as they compete (and occasionally work with) other players.

Attention, space cadets!

A classic Sci-Fi double shot is coming your way in the form of the Rocket Age RPG and Space Cadets:  Dice Duel.

Rocket Age from Cubicle 7 operates off of the same Vortex system as their hit Doctor Who and Primeval RPGs, but cobbling together references and settings reminiscent of all the great sixties space adventure films, comics, and television series.

Space Cadets: Dice Duel takes the original Space Cadets board game and turns it into a team based dice rolling game.  Each team of players (up to four a team) control different members of a starship crew, with each rolling dice fast and furious to see if they earn their pay during a ship-to-ship battle.

Mage Knight receives the Heroclix stand-alone treatment with Mage Knight Resurrection.  As with the Star Trek, The Hobbit, and The Dark Knight before it, Mage Knight Resurrection is a complete miniatures adventure battle game in box.  Out as well is a matching blind box expansion tower of miniatures to add to the game.

A new party game from Looney Labs, makers of Fluxx and Chrononauts, Choose One, has players making bets on how much they know their friends.  Each turn consists of a question, such as aisle or window, and players must decide how they think their opponents will answer.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the new hotness, has players taking on the roles of men and women, with the male characters controlling the stock market and the female characters making dresses.  Each side must roleplay their respected character in efforts of accruing extra points all leading up to a looks contest at a culminating dance.  And that’s why it’s extremely popular.

And finally, the lightning round!

-From Chaosium, World War Cthulhu:  The Darkhest Hour RPG supplement for Call of Cthulhu.

-Night Eternal, the competitive True Blood card game from Cryptozoic, makers of both Walking Dead board games.
