And the last board game is Moai Tectonic: a tile-laying game where you have to match up islands to gain villagers of one (or two) color(s). But there’s a lot of twists, because there’s always some special rules in effect, like sacrificing villagers for an advantage, which are drawn from a separate card deck. Be the first one to 15 villagers and win the game! Moai Tectonic is 7 GBP. You do need to supply the villager tokens and such yourself, but that’s why the game is so cheap (and you probably have like a gazillion wooden cubes lying around anyway).

Über Epic (Relaunch):
Uber Epic is being relaunched! It’s a social competitive battlefield strategy board game of attack, defense and revenge!

But, one remote planet may hold the key to epicness. Nay, make that UBER EPICNESS! As the general of your own rag-tag army of mercenaries, it's time to seize your destiny. I Love that piece of writing! I wish there was more graphics on the page so I could actually see what it was about, but the 1 minute 29 video looks pretty Well... Epic. Anyway, Uber Epic is 65 USD!
