Retracing Darwin’s journey to the Galapagos in an exciting Worker Placement euro game by Simone Luciani and Nestore Mangone.
With an innovative worker progression system, each worker will have to study the disciplines that are a prerequisite to perform several actions in the game, such as exploration, correspondence, and discovering specimens in order to contribute to the human knowledge of biology.
Scribbletown is the new low-luck roll-and-write for any number of players. Every turn is a tough choice between using your precious land plots on buildings or roads. Avoid your opponents filling your board with junk piles by timing your use of waste. Special building cards truly make every game different by changing the importance and placement of standard buildings. Enjoy deluxe components like dry-erase boards and huge custom dice! Playable solo or with dozens of players; it even plays easily remotely over Zoom. On Kickstarter now!
Kingdoms of the Deep
The sequel to Animal Kingdoms is here! Kingdoms of the Deep is an area control and simultaneous action selection game for 2-6 players in 45-60 minutes. Dive into this thinky game that has a beautiful table presence. Balance control of the capitals against round specific goals like deploying units in a spatial pattern, planning certain actions, and making specific upgrades. The game moves forward whenever any player resets their actions, so time your actions wisely to anticipate scoring rounds. Watch out for the community controlled shark that can work both for and against you!
