++++++++++ Game of the Week ++++++

-- Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game --

!!! You can purchase the game from our store with a massive 15% discount until next week (from 05.11.2019 to 12.11.2019) πŸ˜ƒ

Detective is an immersive deduction game in which you and your friends are a group of detectives trying to solve 5 cases that don't seem, at the beginning, connected. While it is not the only deduction game on the market, Detective differentiates itself by having a special website where you can research an extensive database, having case files that are full of stories and letting you even use the internet - anything you would actually do when trying to find clues and connections.

This is a medium complexity 1 to 5 player game that takes around 3 hours per case.

++++++ Game of the Week ++++++

-- Alchemists & Alchemists: The King's Golem --

!!! You can purchase the game and its expansion from our store with a massive 20% discount until next week (from 12.11.2019 to 19.11.2019) 🀩

Waking up early to gather some mandrake root, spongy mushrooms, and chicken feet, selling potions in the marketplace, testing new potions and trying to publish a correct thesis before your fellow academics - this is just an alchemist's average day. This is a fairly complex game where 2 to 4 alchemists race to find out the elements' alchemic formula and use it to gain points, money and, most importantly, reputation.

Here's what our staff has to say about this game:

"It's a really cool game with an interesting deduction mechanic where you do experiments with different elements to eliminate what formula they can't have and, even though it takes 2 hours because it's a bit complex, each time I've played it people were really involved and enjoyed it a lot." - Rossy

"Alchemists is a fun deduction game. You get to mix things like scorpion tails, warty toads, spongy mushrooms and more to find the right ingredients for your potions, publish them and get the respect of the community to be the ultimate winner. πŸ˜ƒ I loved that you get to use pen and paper to work out the combinations and after that you can test your hypothesis with the app." - Noemi

"Definitely one of the best deduction/puzzle games out there, combined in just the right way with some worker placement, bidding and hand management. If you enjoyed Einstein's House Riddle or if you're one of those people who sometimes relaxes by playing Sudoku, then this game is for you. Mixing and brewing alchemical potions, foraging for ingredients, publishing your theories to gain reputation, debunking other players' theories or simply going from excitement to despair when testing your potions on your students (or on yourself) - this game has it all! πŸ˜ƒ" - Tudy

++++++ Game of the Week ++++++

-- Raiders of the North Sea & expansions--
!!! You can purchase the base game and its expansions from our store with a massive 15% discount until next week (from 19.11.2019 to 26.11.2019) πŸ˜ƒ
Raiders of the North Sea is a worker placement game all about Viking life. Here you'll be a Viking warrior who has to assemble a crew and head up north to plunder gold, iron, and livestock. The unique feature of this game is the way the worker placement mechanic works - you have to place a worker on free space and resolve the action indicated there. Then you take a worker from another space and resolve its action.

Here's what our staff has to say about this game:
"Raiders is my current go-to game for introducing new players to euro-style board games. It has a great combination of resource management and card play, where you have to think twice about what you want to spend. It is very clever and easy-going, and the downtime is almost nonexistent as the number of actions you take each turn is minimal. The art also helps by being great, but that is more of a subjective opinion. It also has two expansions that make the game better in every conceivable way. Huge like!" - Raul
"Raiders of the North Sea is one of my favorite games. A worker placement game with a nice design and easy to explain rules that's fun to play even with only two players." - Noemi
This is a medium complexity 2 to 4 player game that takes around 1 hour and a half.

++++++ Game of the Week ++++++

-- CARCASSONNE & extensions --

!!! You can purchase the game from our store with a massive 15% discount until next week (from 27.11.2019 to 04.12.2019) πŸ˜ƒ Limited stock!

Carcassonne is a tile-placement game in which the players draw and place a tile with a piece of southern French landscape on it. The tile might feature a city, a road, a cloister, grassland, or some combination thereof. It must be placed adjacent to tiles that have already been played in such a way that cities are connected to cities, roads to roads, etcetera. Having placed a tile, the player can then decide to place one of his meeples on one of the areas on it: on the city as a knight, on the road as a robber, on a cloister as a monk, or on the grass as a farmer. When that area is complete, that meeple scores points for its owner.

Here's what our staff has to say about this game:

"Carcassonne is a beginner's game that is easy to explain. It has lots of expansions that can give some extra flavor. Fun to play, and it can get really competitive after a few games." - Vlad

"A really nice entry-level game that you can make as competitive as you want. Great to play with friends or family, and the fun gets even better with a couple of extensions." ~Noemi

This is an entry-level complexity game for 2 to 5 player game that takes around 30-45 min.

🎲 Game of the Week 🎲

-- Tudor --

!!! You can purchase this game and a whole lot others from our store with a massive 15% discount until the 23rd of December. πŸ˜ƒ

In Tudor, players represent lords in the court of King Henry VIII and their purpose is to assign courtiers in audience chambers where they will be granted different actions throughout the game. The winner is the lord that knew best how to play the politics game and win the most prestige at the end of the game.

This is a medium complexity game for 2 to 4 players that lasts about 2 hours.

Here's what our staff has to say about this game:

"An interesting worker placement game where positioning and maneuvering are essential. It has a robust mechanic that centers around set collecting and activating special powers, and that makes it an exciting game indeed. It's not hard to teach or understand, but it is at the end of the day a boardgame for boardgamers :) " - Raul

"It's an interesting game where you have to think ahead at what actions will serve you best and figure out what combination of rings, chambers and movements will get you the most points. The fact that you have player screens that look like hands and hold your rings is both ridiculous and hilarious when you have conversations like "I will move my ring from the pointer to my middle finger and I will steal your blue ring, as well" πŸ˜ƒ " - Rossy

"Did you ever dream of being an influential lord in the court of King Henry VIII? Academy Game's Tudor board game allows you to do just that. You send your courtiers into audience chambers and hope that there's a lord there to receive you. Otherwise, your courtiers are stuck doing nothing. Also, there's limited seating! So, unless you can maneuver your way around the queue, you'll be out of the room in no time! You then use those room actions to plot and scheme, in an attempt to gain prestige, power, and office titles. And rings. Yes, the rings themselves, the ring colors, and the fingers you place them on your hand/screen matter, as they give you a bit of an edge on some of the actions you can perform in future rounds. But beware, any other player can go for that much-coveted "Lord Keeper of the Privy Seal" title you've worked so hard to obtain! πŸ™‚ All in all, it's an enjoyable and fresh worker placement game with relatively short setup time and high replayability. Highly recommended! πŸ‘" - Tudy

🎲 Game of the Week 🎲

⛏ Imhotep ⛏

!!! You can purchase this game and its expansion from our store with a massive 15% discount until next week (14.01.2020). πŸ˜ƒ

In Imhotep, your purpose is to gather the most points by building monuments in the most valuable places. Each player has stone blocks in front of them and can perform one of the following actions on their turn: take more blocks from the supply, put one block on a ship, use and action or sail a ship into one of the 4 docks. Each dock leads to a certain location, such as the market, the obelisk site, the burial chamber etc. The timing of your actions, combined with the places your stone blocks end up in, will determine if you are the greatest builder in all Egypt or if your monuments lack in construction and location!

This is a competitive, medium-complexity game for 2 to 4 players that lasts about 40 minutes.

Here's what our staff has to say about this game:

"Imhotep is a simple and fun game, but it's also competitive. On your turn, you have to think very well about what action you want to take because whatever you don't do, the others can take advantage of! I think this can be a nice family game, a starter game if you want to introduce someone to the world of board gaming or a light game to start off your board game night πŸ˜ƒ " - Rossy

"I love competitive games that you can learn quickly, don't take too long to play, that are pretty to look at, and Imhotep checks all those boxes. This is an easy and fun game, perfect for playing with your family or friends. Highly recommend for beginners but also really to everyone who wants just to disconnect and have a great time." - Noemi

🎲 Game of the Week 🎲

πŸ—‚ [redacted] πŸ—‚

!!! You can purchase this game from our store with a massive 15% discount until next Tuesday (28.01.2020) πŸ˜ƒ

The Cold War. Spies. Crucial intel.
You get this and much more in [redacted], a game of intrigue, bluffing and betrayal. Take on the role of a spy, Russian or American, be the first to get the other team’s intel and fly away in your helicopter, foiling their plans.

While trying to complete your mission, you seek to interrogate, steal or injure the other players, move carefully around the embassy as to not get caught by the opposing team and use every room's special effect to your and your team's advantage.

This is a competitive, medium-complexity game for 2 to 6 players that lasts about 45 minutes.

Here's what our staff has to say about this game:

"A game about secret roles and secret alliances. Spies being invited at a Grand Ball and trying to retrieve crucial intel while avoiding enemy operators? It sounds like the plot of a great book or even a movie, but now you can actually play it and see how ingenious you have to be in order to survive. Each room has a special ability, and you have to use all your tools and unlikely allies if you are to bring the package to the helicopter and complete the mission. Not an easy game to learn but very fun and rewarding once you get the cogs turning. " - Raul

"This is a cool game if you want the planning and plotting that hidden role games come with (like The Resistance, Secret Hitler etc.) but you would like a more complex game that lets you do more than a couple of different actions and strategies. It takes a bit to set up, so it's not really a short party game, but once you start it, it becomes very fun and interesting." - Rossy

To listen to an opinion on this game, check out this short video by Rhado: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4IEtnRcZJ4

Here's more information about the game: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/161578/redacted

You can find the game for sale in our store or you can find it as part of our game library and play it here while you enjoy a hot drink and great company πŸŽ²β˜•οΈ

🎲 Game of the Week 🎲

🍻 Red Dragon Inn 🍻

!!! You can purchase this game and its expansions from our store with a massive 15% discount until next Tuesday (04.02.2020) πŸ˜ƒ

You're an adventurer that just finished a hell of a mission, defeated the dragon, stole his loot, and walked by foot to the nearest village to rest for the night. But before getting to that sweet, sweet long rest, where do you go? To the inn's bar to celebrate, of course! In Red Dragon Inn, you and your friends each choose a character and proceed to try to get the others drunk, weak, or too broke to continue playing. There's no need for actual drinking in this game since the drunk part is done by giving people cards with drinks on them, but it's a flexible game, so as long as you are responsible, you can play it with actual drinks, too.

This is a competitive, medium-complexity game for 2 to 4 players that lasts about 45 minutes. By buying the expansions, you can play with more friends, every expansion bringing new and interesting characters.

Here's what our staff has to say about this game:

"Ever wondered what the characters are up to after they slay the monster? Nothing good, that's for sure. It all starts with light drinks at the local tavern, and it escalates in hilarious ways as the game progresses. Out of nowhere orcs attack the Inn or you have to deal with a drinking contest initiated by one of your party members. Or you didn't tip the wench the correct amount of coins. Or your drink becomes twice as alcoholic thanks to the good for nothing wizard that is seated next to you. Its a wild and funny game. " - Raul

"Red Dragon Inn is an entertaining game where you give drinks to your opponents and sometimes start gambling to make everyone lose money. It's a fun party game and having different characters and action cards makes it a bit more complex than your average party game" - Rossy

Chimera Station is a worker placement board game with a twist - you can customize your workers! At first, you get workers of your color, but during the game, you can splice them and attach tentacles, claws, leaves, or brains, which make them better for different actions. The game has a lot of replayability because of the customizable workers and all the different modules that you can add to the space station, modules that grant you different actions and ways to score points.

This is a competitive, fairly complex strategy game for 2 to 4 players that lasts about an hour and a half.
