Board Game: Santa Fe



In Santa Fe, the players — western heroes that they are — aim to take as many tricks as possible during the eleven rounds of the game, in addition to collecting as many points as possible.

Unlike most games, lower-valued cards are worth more as the deck contains fewer of them. The players can challenge each other, as well as the sheriff, to the Mexican standoff.

Players View

After a duel, only one player is left standing, and this player takes several tricks at the same time. The player who fights a duel at the most appropriate time and collects the largest points — as well as the highest number of special bandit cards — will be the final one standing when the game ends.

Board Game: Oriflamme

The Crown .... Who will be the new King in the Realm

In Oriflamme, the players find themselves in the middle of a medieval feud over the French royal crown. The King is dead! Long live the King! As heads of influential families, the players strive to come to power with cunning and malice, power and strength, virtue and infamy. Their goal: the king's throne!

In the tactical card game, hidden cards are played in turn. By tactically uncovering and activating their effects, players can outdo or get them out of the way, because all players have the same goal in mind — to collect the most influence points for their family and thus win the game.

Photo Impression of .... Rossio

Board Game: Rossio


The Portuguese King has called the finest stonemasons of the country to pave one of the most important squares with calçada tiles (worldwide famous black and white tiles that pave several squares in Portugal). But the task is enormous and players will have to count with the aid of helper cards who will help them score points and/or collect money.

Board Game: Rossio


Board Game: Rossio


In Rossio, players start the game by drawing five cards and keeping three of them on their hands.

Board Game: Rossio


On a player's turn, players will first recruit a card from their hands, placing it on the rightmost space under their player board, sliding to the left all cards previously recruited, discarding the card that slides off their boards (under each player board there are only 3 card slots). If the newly recruited card is played face-up, players must pay its cost in coins. If the card is played face-down, no money needs to be spent.

Board Game: Rossio


Board Game: Rossio




Then, ALL cards under a player board will activate: face-up cards will give the player Points for each time the pattern depicted on the card is found on the square. Face-down cards will provide the player 1 coin each.

Board Game: Rossio


Board Game: Rossio


Then, players must build the leftmost calçada tile of their player boards. Players can never voluntarily change the order of the tiles on their board. At any moment players can, however, spend 1 coin to swap 2 pieces on their board that are orthogonally adjacent. The tile must be built in the square orthogonally adjacent to at least 2 elements: 1 tile and 1 wall, or 2 tiles. And must be built on the leftmost available space of the line it is being built. If the players manage to build orthogonally adjacent to a similar tile, they can as bonus build the next leftmost tile, and so on, until they decide to stop or until they can't build more. Players collect then 1 coin for each coin depicted on the spaces that were left free on their player boards after tiles were built.

Board Game: Rossio


Finally, players end their turn by drawing 1 card into their hand from the 4 cards available on the market. However, the amount of cards players can choose from depends on the number of tiles that they have built. So, if players build only 1 tile, they must take the 1st card. If they build 3 tiles, for example, they can choose between the 1st, 2nd or 3rd cards. Players end their turns by refilling the empty spaces of their player boards with tiles from the facedown stacks.

Board Game: Rossio


As the square is being cooperatively built, certain patterns appear more often than others and the scoring of face-up cards becomes exponential. Also, when players complete a column, they collect a bonus, that can be either 1 coin or drawing more cards. Money is very tight in this game, so gaining an extra coin can be crucial to recruiting a card from your hand face-up.

Board Game: Rossio


Board Game: Rossio


The game ends when the square is finished and the player with most points wins the game.

Rossio is all about timing: Recruit a card face-up late in the game, and then it will score fewer times than expected. Recruit it too early, and it will score you a few points since there are few tiles built on the square. To many cards recruited face down will give that extra amount of money, but, they won't score any points. Build several tiles and you're probably helping your opponents. Build fewer tiles and you probably won't have money next turn to recruit a face-up card.

Board Game: Rossio


Rossio is a game with very simple rules, but with high interaction between players and interesting decisions every single turn.

The city of Babylon appeals to the imagination, in music, history, and stories of the past ... Who wouldn't want to wander around in those gardens and see the splendor before the signs were written on the wall?

A nice light game with nice colorful parts that play away quickly and quickly and that also appeals to young teenagers.

Designer Bruno Cathala created Ishtar, a game in which you play the role of a gardener aiming to transform the dry desert into the Lost Hanging Gardens of Babylon. To accomplish your mission, you will have to plant flowers, which, if you place them well, can help you gather precious gems and activate actions. Whether to buy Trees (which will block the link between two Flower spots, as well as earning you points) or to purchase upgrades (such as getting two more points per Tree card at the end of the game), collecting gems will be a crucial part of the game. Get them before your opponents, recruit apprentices, send them to earn points in the copses of flowers you have created, block others and think carefully of the upgrades to purchase if you want to become the best gardener at the end of the game!

A small impression of Menara

As a tight-knit team in Menara, players use pillars and wondrously-shaped temple floors to build a spectacularly soaring structure full of nooks and crannies. Cooperation and static skills are in demand since for each mistake in construction, you have to add another floor to the temple.

A steady hand, an alert mind, and mutual assistance can help you successfully complete what seems to top out at dizzy heights...

A Beautiful light-weighted family game with great components.
You

Try to achieve the goal together despite the pressure you feel to balance the pieces well without the temple collapsing.

In Pendulum, each player is a noble in battle to succeed the timeless king as ruler of Dünya empire. Players take command of their workers, implement strategies, and expand the provinces in their domain in real-time to gather resources and grow the four victory tracks in power, prestige, popularity and legendary achievement.

Players should use actual time as a tool to manage their strategy to defeat their opponents, spending time on different action types and balancing them with the time they spend planning and analyzing. The winner is the player who most effectively manages and invests his time and who builds the best engine, not the player who acts the fastest.

Pendulum has an interesting game mechanic although
(Simultaneous Action Selection, Variable Player Powers
& worker Placement) I wonder if this is a good fit for any player company. Handling the hourglasses simultaneously requires good knowledge of the rules of the game and handling them correctly. The mechanisms feel good and without the hourglasses, it played smoother with us.
