Mafia-like game - only 8,50

Sultans of Karaya will feel familiar to fans of Werewolf/Mafia in that players each have a secret role and (most of them) belong to one of two teams, each team having a specific way to win the game. The two teams are:

• Sultan and Guards (Loyalists) – to win, they must eliminate all the Assassins and have no more than two Slaves still in play, or the Sultan must survive for a round after being revealed.
• Assassins and Slaves (Rebels) – to win, they must kill the Sultan or have three Slaves seated adjacently with their identities revealed, in which case a slave revolution brings down the Sultan.

lovely looking game for girls stocking

Euro 15

Everyone wants to see the first rainbow in the sky because of the satisfaction it brings.

In Rainbow Seven, you are an explorer looking for that "First Rainbow" – but you're not the only one, so you'll need to be quick to collect the seven color clues and find out where that first rainbow is before the rain stops. Watch your bearings, and don't let the North, South, East, or West lead you away from that first rainbow...

looks cute 2 player strategy card game

Published by:
Odynaut Game Company

Euro 10

To play the game, each player receives an identical deck of 25 cave, fire, and caveman cards. Players use the cave cards to create a playing field on the table with three fire cards for each player at each end. In turns, players place cards and take action. They walk and fight among their own caves and those of the enemy to try to reach one of the enemy's fire cards. The cavemen cards are ranked, and some have special abilities. Lost cards can return to the drawing deck, but to do so a player must lose certain cards first. Losing these is tricky, though.

In the tactical card game Shinobi: War of Clans players will take on the role of secret agents of the most powerful clans of feudal Japan.

The aim of the game is supporting your clan with military advantage; the clan which has the most troops at the end of the game wins.

looks fun - and limited to 500 copies

In Shark Attacks!, each player owns a beachfront hotel, and business is good as long as the tourists who come to the hotel spend a lot of time swimming in the water. They enjoy their time, spread the word to others, and word about your fine establishment gets around. Unfortunately, the beaches are visited repeatedly by sharks – and if a bather gets injured by a shark, well, naturally your visitor count (and subsequent business) will be injured as well.

Thus, you want to send as many swimmers as possible into the water when no sharks are about – and if sharks do happen to be swimming nearby and eager to taste a tourist or two, you need to ensure that as many swimmers as possible come out of the water unharmed. You'll receive points for both satisfied swimmers in the water and those who flee successfully from sharks.

Shark Attacks! is limited to a production run of 500 copies.
