New Games Played

This week we had a chance to play 3 games that we had not played before.

Bull's-eye  ~  Edo  ~ Africana




AFRICANA from Z-Man Games
Doug R. was kind enough to let us play his copy of AFRICANA.  This board game is one you can learn to play in minutes, but has enough going on to keep you coming back many times. The pace is fast and players get to travel to many cities in Africa completing and collecting artifacts.  Thank you Doug R.

BULL's-eye from DNA Family Games
The BULL's-eye word game turns out to be an easy, fast paced game. Rounds are a minute long and score management takes on new meaning as players race to 100 points.  Designers Doug and Nilda Loriz put on an enthusiastic demo for us.

EDO from Queen Games
We grabbed  EDO off our demo shelf and got a chance to experience its interesting planning system with game enthusiasts, Schel and Jessica. The game provides lots of options for actions and worker placement on every turn.  The minute this one got done we started thinking of the many ways we could have played better.
