Check out Onitama!

Onitama, by Arcane Wonder, is a two-player ‘perfect information’ abstract strategy game where players take on the role of a Master, guiding their monk followers, attempting to defeat your opponent armed only with a handful of moves, your cunning and your wits.

In Onitama, players will vie to capture their opponent’s Master, or, traverse their Master across the board to their opponent’s Master’s starting position to win the game.  To do this, you will be armed with a handful of special and ancient maneuvers, presented on beautiful Tarot size cards, that manipulate the field of battle to your advantage.  Will you use the Dragon to overpower your opponent, the Horse to outmaneuver them, or the Cobra to strike quickly?

This game is super easy to learn and had a ton of strategy.  Since the possible moves available to everyone are always known, planning ahead can be done, but watch out for tricksey opponents!

The game is beautiful with really high quality, simple miniatures.  The board is a roll-up playmat  Rated a 7.7 on Board Game Geek, this is really just a fantastic game.

We’ve added it to our library, so check it out!

Happy Salmon Has Arrived!

It’s finally here!

We played this game at GAMA and I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.  It’s loud, crazy, and super fun!  We’ve added one to our game library so you can come in and check it out!

Happy Salmon is the simple, fast-paced card game packed to the gills with high-fivin’, fin-flappin’ fun. Actions including the classic “High 5”, the unifying “Pound It”, the frantic “Switcheroo”, and the delightful “Happy Salmon” will leave players doubled over in laughter. With so many mini-celebrations built into the play, it’s the happiest game ever!

How to Play

  1. Everyone calls out the action shown on their top card.
  2. When two players have a match, they celebrate by
    performing that action together, then discard their top card.
  3. The first player to match all of the cards in their deck wins!

This game is super fun for young…

…and older alike!
