Tuesday Designer Spotlights
Dragoon

Dragoon

In Dragoon, you play as a dragon as pesky humans threaten to invade your homeland. You'll use dragon cards to enhance your powers as you race to be the first dragon to earn 50 gold. For 2-4 players, Dragoon features a beautiful fabric "board" and metal pieces.

Spank the Yeti

Insert Picture of Spank the Yeti

Spank the Yeti is just as wonderfully inappropriate as it sounds. Spank the Yeti, from the creators of the wildly popular movie game Schmovie, has players aligning dirty-sounding action cards (like "Milk" or "Tongue Bathe") with people, places, and thing cards (like "Unicorns" and "An Old Jar of Mayonaisse"). The results of this adults-only party game are always hilarious, and never PG.

Wednesday Designer Spotlights
Bad Medicine

Insert Picture of Bad Medicine

Bad Medicine is a little game about big pharma! In this party game, players pull drug cards to create hilarious drug names, the conditions they cure, and the terrible side effects they spawn.

Ghost Pirates

Ghost Pirates is a tactical board game for two players. In it, players are each ghost pirate captains leading their ghost pirate ships (built by placing cards together). Players roll dice, move their captains and crew, and attempt to keel haul the other ship's captain. It's spooky fun on the high seas.

Mad Science Foundation

Mad Science Foundation is a drafting game for 2 - 4 players who take on the roles of mad scientists trying to raise funding for their evil schemes. Will you have what it takes to convince the Mad Science Foundation to fund your shark-filled, laser-centric evil plan?

Dominion, Dominion Intrigue & Update Packs - Second Edition

Dominion is the popular "expand your kingdom" board game. With Dominion 2nd Edition, players can find an expanded variety on kingdoms to play, as well as updates and refinements to several mechanics. Dominion Intrigue 2nd Edition expands on these even more, while opening up the game for up to eight players. The base cards have been removed from the Intrigue 2nd ed. expansion to bring the overall cost down. Base cards can be purchased separately for the option to play Intrigue or any other Dominion expansion as a stand alone game.

Giaco's Top 5 Games of the Week

Top 5 This week I'm taking a look at five of my favorite games new and old, available at the store and absolutely worth checking out.

Star Wars: Imperial Assault

Star Wars: Imperial Assault Star Wars: Imperial Assault is one of the most massive games you'll find set in the Star Wars universe. This game, like many RPG's and the board game Descent, has one to four players take on the role of rebel adventurers playing against another player who controls all of the "baddies"—monsters and imperial troopers, even Darth Vader himself. Everything from the adventures, to the expansions available, to the level of detail in the sculpted miniatures really sets this game apart from others like it.

Smash Up

Smash Up Smash Up describes itself as a "shufflebuilding" card game, where each player chooses two small decks of cards belonging to separate factions and shuffles them together. The question is: who will you smash together to fight against your opponents? Will you team up Zombies and Ninjas? Aliens and Dinosaurs? And the expansions aren't just fluff, with new factions based on sci-fi, mythical heroes, and just plain awesome-ness. This game is fast, easy to understand, and great for goofy crowds of friends.

Star Wars: Age of Rebellion [Roleplaying Game]

Star Wars Age of Rebellion Whoa, Giaco... Another Star Wars entry on this list? You're mad with power! True, but Star Wars: Age of Rebellion is one of the best roleplaying games I've played in years. Featuring easy-to-grasp rules (that are also used in the Star Wars RPG's Edge of the Empire and Force and Destiny), this game sets players and Game Masters in the center of the battle raging during the original trilogy. While Han, Luke, Leia, and co. are off freezing on Hoth or blowing up Jabba's barge, you'll play as lower-ranking rebel soldiers trying to steal secret plans and investigate rumors of Imperial hide-outs. The other RPG's in this series mentioned above are great, too, but nothing feels better than donning that bright orange jumpsuit and blasting away at a bunch of fool stormtroopers.

Betrayal at House on the Hill

Betrayal at House on the Hill The leaves are changing here in Brooklyn, pumpkins are beginning to appear on the stoops of brownstones, so naturally I'm getting truly into the spooky mood. And when Halloween season roles around, I really only want to play Betrayal at House on the Hill, the amazing semi-cooperative board game from Avalon Hill. In this game, players work together to search a creepy haunted house (generated randomly from hidden tiles revealed as you explore) for secrets and treasures, but when a random event called the HAUNT is triggered, one or some of the players will be revealed to secretly be a traitor. From there, the game turns on its head and is a frenzied race to survive at the House on the Hill.

Sushi Go / Sushi Draft

Sushi Go / Sushi Draft Why do we need two sushi-themed card-drafting games? Because sushi is delicious, and card-drafting games are the best... duh! These two sushi games will appeal to different tastes. Sushi Go is all about building the best plates of sushi, and it involves split-second decision making and planning ahead. Sushi Draft is much lighter, and better for kids, featuring large, round cards that can either be "Eaten," "Stored for later," or "Passed." So, do you want build the perfect sushi plate with Sushi Go? Or do you want to stuff your face with Sushi Draft?

Race to the North Pole

Can you and your crew be the first to make it to the frosty north? In Race to the North Pole, players compete to become famous explorers by beating their opponents to the Pole. The game features a rotating board to capture the wild and unpredictable weather of the North Pole. Move you pawns toward the center of the board, gear up to survive the harsh conditions, make a perfect plan... and watch helplessly as the merciless wilderness spins the board and changes your route.

Mystery of the Abbey

Someone's died in the Abbey, and it's up to a small group of investigative monks to find the killer. Mystery of the Abbey wonderfully updates the classic whodunnit board game Clue. Move your monk around the Abbey, cross off suspects from your list as you investigate, and be the first monk detective to solve the Mystery of the Abbey.

Bycatch

Bycatch is a brand new card game that requires the use of a camera phone. Each player takes on the role of a nation, and cards are drawn representing people, some of which are terrorist suspects. Players can create shelters for their people, and players can use their camera phones to do surveillance on the opposing teams. Bycatch is a very smart game that asks deep questions about surveillance and wars on terror.

Lotus

Clear your mind, ignite your senses, and take in the beauty and power of the lotus garden. With Lotus players compete to grow beautiful flowers, using insect guardians to help them. Along with easy-to-learn rules and fast, fun gameplay, Lotus also features stunning artwork, with a unique "card fanning" technique to recreate a blooming flower.

Coup : Rebellion G54 Anarchy Expansion

This new expansion to the famed bluffing game Coup: Rebellion G54 adds new characters and gameplay mechanics. Lie your way to victory with new roles like the paramilitary, arms dealers, and socialists, and try to gain as much influence as possible before the end of the game.

Mansions of Madness (2nd. Edition) Expansions

Two new expansions to the second edition of the Cthulhu-centric investigative/horror game Mansions of Madness - Suppressed Memories and Reoccurring Nightmares - hit shelves today. These expansions bring all your favorite investigators and monsters back from the first edition of the game and make them playable with the second edition. So whether you miss playing as Ashcan Pete, or you want to square off against the Priest of Dagon, these two expansions bring the best moments from the first edition back from the grave.

Star Wars X-Wing: ARC-170 (Expansion)

Take flight with the newest expansion to rebel fleets in the tactical ship-to-ship combat game Star Wars X-Wing. The ARC-170 provides heavy firepower, crew and astromech upgrade slots, and introduces new pilot cards like Shara Bey (Poe Dameron's mother) and three other aces.

Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu

In a foggy New England town an unknowable terror lurks. Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu challenges you and your fellow investigators to work together toward saving the region (and your sanity). With mechanics based on the globe-spanning medical disaster game Pandemic, Reign of Cthulhu tests your cooperation, strategy, and problem solving skills. Can you save the day before the Old Gods turn you into a maddened, mindless husk?

Monikers

The beautifully illustrated Monikers describes itself as "a dumb party game that respects your intelligence," and the description is pretty apt! Based on the classic party game "Celebrity," each clue-giver has a card with a name or type of person on it (like "Georgia O'Keefe", "Florida Man", or "David After Dentist"), and the clue-giver has to make the group guess their cards. Each round it gets a bit harder, as clues go from being any amount of words in round one, to just one word in round two, to no words -charades only- in round three. This game gets goofy, causes an uproar, and is perfectly inappropriate.

Codenames Pictures

Codenames Pictures sets two teams of spies against each other in a race to find enemy secret agents out in the field. Cards with a single image are laid out on a 5x4 grid, and one spy-master on each team knows who's who in the layout. This is a fast-paced, exciting party game that's all about using images and carefully chosen words to help your team guess correctly. Say the wrong hint and your teammates may give a point to your opponents, or worse: they may find the secret assassin and cause an instant loss!

Drinking Quest (New Printing)

Drinking Quest is back! If you like your tabletop roleplaying games a bit on the sloshy side, you'll love this light RPG/drinking game. Pull clever cards to battle monsters, gain experience points, rack up gold, chug beer, and let the room spin around you. Always slay goblins responsibly, do not Quest and drive.

The Resistance: The Plot Thickens [Expansion]

Classic party/bluffing game The Resistance gets an update with The Resistance: The Plot Thickens, which adds plot cards, new characters, and new missions. We're so excited for this update, as The Resistance is the kind of game you play and play with friends for years. Any additions that spice up the core game are great.
