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