New Board Games – Fall 2014

Posted November 2, 2014 in News

Come by the store to check out some of our awesome new board games! We have expanded our board-game selection a ton over the past four months and there are too many to list, but here are some of our favorites:

Lords of Waterdeep
(Tabletop with Will Wheaton Game Demo)
Lords of Waterdeep is a strategy board game for 2-5 players. Each player takes on the role of one of the masked Lords of Waterdeep, secret rulers of the city. The players use their agents to recruit adventurers to go on one of five different types of quests, which earns rewards and increases that lord’s influence over the city.
Betrayal at House on the Hill
(Tabletop with Will Wheaton Game Demo)
Described as a “Terrifying B Movie” this is a new and exciting game. All players start as allied explorers of a haunted house filled with dangers, traps, items, and omens And one of the group members is a traitor, watch out! As the players explore the mansion, new room tiles are chosen at random, so the game board is different each session.
Hive
(Video Demo)
From Josh: This is my favorite board game that we carry. Chris and I played it all summer long, and it’s awesome. Games last 10-20 minutes usually, and can get very interesting and complex. It’s sort of like chess, but the tile-placing aspect makes it completely original and fresh.
Power Grid
(Video Review)
Friedmann Friesse’s must-play classic competition for domination of the power-grid of the cities across the USA (or Germany). Rich and complex strategy unfold as you play against one to five other opponents. This one’s a must-try.
Dungeon!
(Video Review)
In many ways Dungeon! is Dungeons & Dragons transformed into a single-session board game. Players explore a dungeon that is divided into levels of increasing difficulty, fighting monsters for valuable treasure. As players venture deeper into the dungeon, the monsters become more difficult and the treasure more valuable. Several character classes each have slightly different fighting abilities – most notably the wizard, who can cast spells. Combat is simulated using dice; players roll the dice to attack a monster, and if unsuccessful, the dice are rolled to determine the effect of the monster’s counter-attack.

And more! We have demos if you’d like to try them out first. Stop by or call us to try these out!
