Walking in Burano
Walking through the island, you will see these vibrant houses on both sides of the canal, as well as the personalized decorations placed by the inhabitants and shopkeepers.

The local government has asked you to refurbish a street in their famed city. Use your creativity to amaze both tourists and locals with your masterpiece of design!

Legendary Forests
Relax and embellish your planet with beautiful trees and leaves in this poetic and quick game! Each player has the same numbered World tiles (drawn randomly one by one), and will play them at the same time on their individual planet to create color and Rune match-ups. Show your individuality! Placing Tree tokens in your forests will increase their beauty and worth, and at the end of the game, the closed forests will reward you with even more points!

Join us for great Learn-to-Play weekends in November!

This time is Gizmos & Utter Nonsense.

New players always welcome! Your Barrister host will teach the rules before we begin and provide guidance during gameplay.

Gizmos
The Great Science Fair is drawing together the sharpest minds of our generation. However, only one can be crowned champion. In Gizmos, you and your fellow players will look to create the most magnificent of machines, taking on the role of inventors at the Great Science Fair and utilizing four different types of energy marbles.

You’ll need to plan ahead, because Gizmos will be able to chain-react with each other giving them multiple results from taking a single action!

Utter Nonsense
Combine silly accents with even sillier phrases to create sayings that are just plain ridiculous! Each round features one accent, and each player must read one of their Phrase Cards in said accent. The Nonsense Judge picks their favorite to win that round. You don’t have to be good at accents to play—have fun with it and be silly to make the phrases your own in this laugh-out-loud game for the whole family.

Learn-to-Play: Tiny Towns & Cartographers @ Mayfair
Nov 23 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join us for great Learn-to-Play weekends in November!

This time is Tiny Towns and Cartographers.

New players always welcome! Your Barrister host, Theo, will teach the rules before we begin and provide guidance during gameplay.

More about Tiny Towns
You are the mayor of a tiny town in the forest. This new land is small and the resources are scarce, so you take what you can get and never say no to building materials. In Tiny Towns, your town is represented by a 4×4 grid on which you will place resource cubes in specific layouts to construct buildings. When you’re the active player, you select a resource for everyone to place next, but when the next player goes, they’ll be selecting what you place next.

More about Cartographers
Queen Gimnax has ordered the reclamation of the northern lands. As a cartographer in her service, you are sent to map this territory, claiming it for the Kingdom of Nalos.  In Cartographers, players compete to earn the most reputation stars by the time four seasons have passed. Each season, players draw on their map sheets and earn reputation by carrying out the queen’s edicts before the season is over. The player with the most reputation stars at the end of winter wins.

Learn-to-Play: Fairy Tile & Photosynthesis @ Mayfair
Nov 24 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for great Learn-to-Play weekends in November!

This time is Fairy Tile & Photosynthesis.

New players always welcome! Your Barrister host will teach the rules before we begin and provide guidance during gameplay.

Fairy Tile
Welcome to Fairy Tile, a kingdom of magical lands where a daring Princess, a devoted Knight, and a dreadful Dragon roam looking for adventure. They need your help to discover the kingdom and tell their epic tale! Develop the kingdom of Fairy Tile by putting new land tiles in play and moving the Princess, Knight, and Dragon across different places such as mountains, forests, and plains. Help them have extraordinary adventures by accomplishing objectives written on the pages of your book. Be the first to read all the pages of your book to win the game.

Photosynthesis
The sun shines brightly on the canopy of the forest, and the trees use this wonderful energy to grow and develop their beautiful foliage. Plant and grow new seedlings wisely and position the shadows of your growing trees to slow your opponents down—but don’t forget that the sun revolves around the forest and that shade might swing back the other way soon enough.

Each turn in Photosynthesis, the sun will revolve 60° of the way around the hexagonal board and provide sunlight to all of the trees that are not in the shade of the trees in front of them. Each player will then have a chance to spend their sunlight, planting seeds and growing trees in preparation for next turn’s revolution!
