Hey folks, it’s been a while since we’ve had a stock update. Remember, we try to keep our shelves supplied every week with the latest and greatest, but if you don’t see a game you want just let us know and we might be able to bring it in!
These are some of the games we got in last week (restock and new stock): Flash Point, Rex, Room 25, Splendor, Stone Age, Robinson Crusoe, Ugg-Tect, Sentinels of the Multiverse, and Relic.
Three games I’d like to specifically spotlight for you. First off, a brand new game through Z-Man: SULTANIYA
“The sultan has issued a decree: Whoever can build the most amazing palace in the city of Sultaniya will be made Grand Vizier. Become a character from 1001 Arabian Nights and build graceful minarets, dazzling gates and soaring cupolas to draw the eye of the sultan and carve your name in history. Players will carefully select the best building tiles to erect the most impressive structures, scoring points for following patterns and fulfilling secret objectives. Earn sapphires, and use them to secure the services of the mighty Djinn, whose aid will be invaluable in your quest to create the most stunning palace the city has ever seen.” – from boardgamegeek.ca (check out the site for pictures of the game pieces!)
Our second spotlight game is CITY OF REMNANTS.
“Hot rain falls down upon a cold, rotting city. Here the Yugai, a species of militant humanoids, leave the survivors of the worlds they have ransacked and destroyed. It is a prison and a work camp, a place for those who lived through Yugai invasion to live out their remaining years as slaves. This is Gatorum, the City of Remnants.
In City of Remnants, players take on the roles of gang leaders, each one with unique qualities and motivations. Players will struggle to control the city, but only the winner can decide the city’s future. Many paths to victory lie before you. Bid for gang members who provide a variety of shady skills. Get an edge with weapons and other sundries from the black market. Build districts that can provide you with advantages, production and income, but beware because a greedy opponent might sweep in and take over the work of your own hands.
City of Remnants combines strong resource management, auction, and conversion mechanisms with spatial tactics, assymetric player powers, area control and direct conflict. A variety of tools, different every game, are at your disposal to build up your gang and claim the city for yourself. But watch out for the Yugai police force, who will meddle with everyone’s plans!” – from boardgamegeek.ca (Go check out the site for more information, and pictures of the box interior!)
Our Third spotlight game is RIVET WARS!
“Rivet Wars is a miniatures boardgame that springs forth from the warped imagination of Ted Terranova – set on a world that never quite left World War I but with crazy technology like walking tanks, diesel powered armor, unicycled vehicles and armor plated cavalry!
Don’t let the cute visuals fool you, it’s a world full of angst, war-torn camaraderie and dark humor.
Rivet Wars is at its heart a strategy game, with both players deploying units each round to counter the threats set forth by their opponent and stay one tactical step ahead.Heavily influenced by Ted’s experience working on RTS games like Rise of Nations, players gather resources (bunkers and capture points) and use these to deploy streams of new units!There’s an ebb and flow on the tactical landscape and you can stock up surprises for your opponent to be unleashed even as he thinks he’s winning!
