Barony .... at the farthest reaches of the Empire, four barons fight for the power. With their armies of knights,
they extend their territories and build villages, strongholds and cities. At the end of this race for power, one of them will become King or President?

As a pirate captain, it's hard to steal booty — but it is even harder to share that booty equally. If you can outsmart your fellow pirates by using your brains and trading skills, you'll probably end up with the most valuable loot!

Stingy is an interactive booty-swapping game for 2-6 players, with the booty in question being rum, parrots, coins, diamonds, and pirate flags; these first four items come in four colors, with 3-6 tiles of each item in those colors, while the pirate flags come only in black (as you might expect).

A little tricky trading game with a knife on the table.

Stingy at the booth of Play this One @ Spiel in Essen 2015

Each player starts with six randomly drawn tiles, with the remainder of the tiles being scattered face down on the table or placed in the included pouch. On a turn, you swap tiles with a fellow player, then draw 1-2 tiles and add them to your collection. When you swap, you choose an opponent, then take all the tiles of one group (matching symbol & matching color) and add it to your collection. Each group has a value, with the values mostly being pyramidal (1 tile = 1, 2 tiles = 3, 3 tiles = 6, etc.). In return, this opponent then takes one or more groups from you that sum at most the same value as what you stole. If it's impossible to take groups this way, that opponent can take groups that sum to a lower value or demand that you hand over groups that sum to a higher value, with you choosing which groups you give up.

When you collect all the tiles in a group (e.g., four blue parrots), you place those tiles face down to the side. No one can take these tiles from you.

After the last tile is drawn, each player takes one final turn, then players score points — but only for the complete groups that they've collected. Whoever has the most points wins.

Stingy includes two-player rules that introduce a ghost pirate with whom players can trade, a variant in which players also score points for the number of differently colored groups they collect, and a "Captain Sly" variant in which an opponent who can't take tiles worth at most what you took gets nothing. Good luck trying to make those unfair trades!

Simone Luciani & Daniele Tascini are giving us new adventures at the board to the east and Dennis Lohausen ad some great artwork to the Travels

In 1271, 17-year-old Marco Polo started on a journey to China with his father and older brother. After a long and grueling journey that led through Jerusalem and Mesopotamia and over the "Silk Road", they reached the court of Kublai Khan in 1275.

In The Voyages of Marco Polo, players recreate this journey, with each player having a different character and special power in the game. The game is played over five rounds. Each round, the players roll their five personal dice and can perform one action each turn with them. After five rounds, the game ends with players receiving victory points for arriving in Beijing, fulfilling the most orders, and having reached the cities on secret city cards that each player gets at the start of the game; these points are added to the VPs gained during the game. Very different starting positions and characters make this game different and fresh every game.

VERSAILLES is an innovative family game for 2-5 players, who will take on the roles of architects and interior designers, working together to create the magnificent palace for King Louis XIV, and compete for the favor of the great monarch himself. Each turn, a player will move one or more of their workers from one location to another and activate all of their workers gathered there. This will provide them with resources, allow them to build puzzle-like palace pieces, design impressive decorations for the interiors and the gardens of the palace and learn new skills, before His Majesty

Versailles is wel produces with fine components and artwork and a interesting theme.
The Idea of moving workers is fresh. During the game a variable way of strategies is missing especially in the end game.
Mechanics working smooth and it has a fast gameplay, clear rules and accessible for new gamers.

Witness the craziest camel race of all time, as things really go topsy-turvy when
camels stack up and entire pyramids turn upside down.
As members of Egyptian high society, you gather in the desert with one simple
goal: to gain the most money by backing the right camel to win a leg or even the
entire race. However, in this race, it’s not just the lucky ones who can beat the
odds. Reading the dynamics of the race and having a good sense of timing is just as
important when it comes to backing the right camels and taking the victory

Great little race and bedding game for the family which is easy to teach and very funny, but can supply great tension as we wait to see which dice tumbles comes from the Pyramid.

Hustle and bustle in the bazaar district of Istanbul: merchants and their assistants are hurrying through the narrow alleys attempting to be more successful than their competitors. Good organization is key: wheelbarrows have to be filled with goods at the warehouses and then swiftly transported by the assistants to the various destinations.
The goal of the merchants is to be the first to collect a certain amount of rubies.

Istanbul, simple rules but deeper game play, a worker-placement with planning, buying and selling goods, planning you path though Istanbul, making a lot of choices for collecting as soon a possible 5 red rubies. The modular game-board is well designed. Rüdiger Dorn created a solid medium weight game which is playable within 60 minutes!
