Fast Sloths is a race game that at its core is a classic pick-up-and-deliver game — except that we ourselves are the cargo being delivered. Get carried along the way and never take a single step on your own! Play with six out of twelve different animal species, and the giant game board can be in four different combinations. On a turn, draft 2-3 cards of different animal types from the top of their face-up decks, then play as many animal cards as you like of a single type. Each animal provides a different type of movement or interaction with its package (that’s you!), with ants carrying you along in a chain and the elephant throwing you with its trunk. Fast Sloths is a game free from randomness that evolves only through the interaction between the players, doing so without any “take that” mechanisms — except for you snatching an animal from under the other players’ noses because you need to use it yourself.
Your succulent garden is amazing! Through thoughtful selection, delicate pruning, and tireless care, you’ve earned a reputation as a master horticulturist. In Succulent, compete against your peers for lucrative and prestigious projects that will cement your place as the community’s premier succulent gardener. The game is played over a series of turns during which players collect succulent cuttings from their gardens along with water crystals and use them to complete projects which grant various benefits, including earning points. Most victory points at the end of the game wins!
Sheriff of Nottingham 2nd Ed.
The bustling market in Nottingham is filled with goods from all over the kingdom. Most of it is entirely legal, however, Prince John is looking to make sure no contraband gets sold. He’s tasked the Sheriff to inspect Merchant’s wares, looking for any illicit goods. The Sheriff’s shrewd, but not above taking a bribe to look the other way. In Sheriff of Nottingham 2nd Edition, players take turns playing the Sheriff, looking for contraband goods, and the Merchants trying to stock their stall with the best goods. The Sheriff can inspect any bag they want, but be careful, as they’ll have to pay a penalty if they find the Merchants were telling the truth. This new edition includes updated rules, as well as expansions such as the 6th Merchant, Black Market, and Sheriff’s Deputies.
