November 24, 2015

Arriving on the shelves this week – a few expansions for games we love and a few new games that look fantastic!

Pie Face!20151124_122953
This game is filled with fun and suspense – and somebody’s bound to get splatted! Just put some delicious whipped cream from home or the provided wet sponge on the game’s “hand”and start turning the handles. It could go off at any time, but you score a point for every time you turn the handle without getting pie-faced – and the first one to 25 points wins. Take some risks and hope for the best in the hilarious game of Pie Face!

20151124_122938Dice City
The Kingdom of Rolldovia is in turmoil. Vie with your fellow players to establish your provincial city as the best home for Rolldovia’s new capital in this “dice-crafting” game where the locations in your city act as the changing faces of your dice each turn. Players must choose their city’s path in gaining the approval of all others in the kingdom by creating strong armies; constructing wondrous buildings; or opening up trade routes.20151124_123007

Above and Below
Your last village was ransacked by barbarians. You barely had time to pick up the baby before they started the pillaging, but after months of wandering, you finally found the perfect place to make your new home! Above and Below is a mashup of town-building and storytelling where you will compete to build the best village above and below ground. You’ll send your villagers to use their unique abilities and perform jobs like exploring the caves, harvesting resources, and constructing houses. At the end of the game, the player with the most well-developed village wins!
