    Review: Age of War

    February 19, 2015

    Our Gotta-Play series is a weekly spotlight on particular games that we think are exceptionally fun and that we believe everybody should try, whether brand new or old classic. On every Saturday afternoon we’ll have a game laid out on one of our front tables, and we’ll be offering free demos and a chance for you to give it a shot. If you try it and find that you simply must have a copy, we’ll be offering a 10% discount on that title through the demo period. So it’s great way to build up your library of the very best games we have in the store – while saving a few bucks along the way! We’ll be demoing Age of War this Saturday, February 21st 1-4pm.

    Age of War takes the concept of a traditional dice game and turns up the volume. With added layers of strategy, fast and easy rules, and beautiful production, it’s a real winner. Set in feudal Japan during the rule of a weak emperor, you’re striving to conquer the many castles across the land and bring the country together under your rule. That would be easy if there weren’t other daimyos trying to do the same thing…

    Review: Dungeon Raiders

    February 12, 2015

    Following in the footsteps of other great “semi-cooperative” games like Cutthroat Caverns and Munchkin, Dungeon Raiders is a card-based strategy game in which 3-5 players delve into dark and arcane passages to acquire gold and defeat deadly monsters. The objective is simple: survive the dungeon with more gold than the other surviving players. After all, you need them to stay alive. But making that happen can be very difficult when your companions are trying to throw you under the proverbial monster-bus.

    Review: Ticket to Ride Europe

    February 4, 2015

    Ticket to Ride is an entry-level Eurogame about resource management, objective prioritization, and figuring out your opponents’ hidden objectives. Players are contracted to connect strings of cities throughout Eurasia by an expansive network of railroads. Each player builds his own rail lines on a limited number of contracted routes, forcing contestants to generate and spend resources and to devise building plans without letting on his ultimate objectives.
