In Calico, players compete to sew the coziest quilt as they collect and place patches of different colors and patterns.

Dragon Parks – Ankama

  • Number of Players: 2-4
  • BGG Rating: 7.0
  • Game Time: 15 mins

Dragons are back into our world, and they are in vogue! As the proud owner of group of islands where dragons nest, you’ll have to manage both the tourists’ expectations and the dragons’ appetite. Dragon Parks is a drafting game which makes use of transparent cards. Select a new card each turn to put on one of your three islands, adding or covering dragons in this park as you do. Some dragons hate to be covered by others and will snap back at you, and if you manage to hatch an egg by covering it, it will attract new visitors!

Rolling Ranch-Thundergryph Games

  • Number of Players: 2-20
  • BGG Rating: 6.9
  • Game Time: 20 mins

 A hurricane destroyed all the fences in the area and the animals fled! However, they should not be that far and after fixing the fences it’s your mission to recover them in the woods. In Rolling Ranch, all players use the same result from the dice to rescue animals and improve their ranch, with each player working on their own ranch sheet. Each player attempts to place the animals in their ranch the best way possible, and to construct buildings and receive bonuses that will help them achieve the highest score. Everyone plays at the same time! Who will be the most successful ranch to rescue their animals?

Equinox- Plan B Games

  • Number of Players: 2-5
  • BGG Rating: Unrated
  • Game Time: 40 mins

In Equinox, mysterious creatures gather in the forest in an effort to write themselves into the legendary storybook and for tales to be shared for countless generations. However, there is room for only four more stories not every story will be recorded, so the creatures have to be cunning and clever to outwit their opponents and make the cut. Equinox is a deeply satisfying betting game that gives players agency to influence the outcome of this competition. Each round, players place numbered power cards in front of the creatures, with the lowest-valued creature being eliminated from play.

Umbra Via-Pandasaurus

  • Number of Players: 2-4
  • BGG Rating: 7.1
  • Game Time: 30 mins

Just beyond the towering vines lies an ancient pathway into the unknown. Push back the thorn-riddled stocks to discover a clandestine garden, blooming with mysterious vigor.

In Umbra Via, players compete to control and complete the most cunning paths. Reach into your bag to select wooden flowers, then place them on your secret board in the order of the paths you want most. But when players reveal their choices, things get delightfully tricky.

Spring Staff Picks!

by: on April 13, 2021  |  

Everyone loves hearing about the games we look forward to playing. So here’s another round of Staff Picks!

Wrestlenomicon -Boyce Asquith

  • Name of Game: Wrestlenomicon
  • Number of Players: 2-4
  • Play Time: 20+ mins
  • BGG Rating: 7

Wrestlenomicon is a new 2-4 player card game where players take the role of competing Old Ones, with the goal of being the last one standing. Each Old One has their own deck with a different strategy. Uniquely, this game uses part of the deck as the Old One’s Health and telegraphs the Old One’s Attacks, allowing both players to see what is coming. So choose your favorite eldritch horror and may the Great Old Ones overlook you.

Parks – Nichole Davis

  • Name of Game: Parks
  • Number of Players: 1-5
  • Play Time: 40+ mins
  • Publisher: Keymaster Games
  • Year Published: 2019
  • Difficulty: Medium

Parks is a really fun game about going on hikes through a bunch of different parks, represented by beautiful art cards. It’s played in a few round with the trail getting progressively longer as you collect different kinds of resources, take pictures, and activate special abilities by drinking from your canteen. The bits are really nice, wooden and nicely colored. One of the things I love most about this game is how cleverly everything fits into the box so the game is never scrambled when you open it up to play. It’s a lot of fun to play and just such a beautifully crafted one as well. Available as a Rental Game!!

Deckscape Pocket Escape Rooms- Dani Kennedy

  • Name of Game: Deckscape (Behind the Curtain)
  • Number of Players: 1-6
  • Play Time: 1 hour
  • Publisher: dV Giochi
  • Year Published: 2017-present
  • Difficulty: Medium- Hard

I love a good escape room, and recently have picked up the games. If you have enjoyed Exit or Unlock! and need a new puzzle try out Deckscape. I played the Behind the Curtain one, where you have been invited to a magic show, then something unexpected happens and you find yourself trapped in the magician’s dressing room! Nichole and I played this while the store was slow one night and we couldn’t stop until we had figured out the puzzle (staying 5 mins after closing just to finish the game). What I love about Deckscape vs. Exit or Unlock! is that I don’t need an app to play the game and you can pass it on to someone once you’ve finished the puzzle. There are a ton of different ones to pick from, Behind the Curtain is available as a Rental Game!!
