Game Arrivals: Mar.17th - 23rd

Here are this week's game arrivals:

We accountants can lead interesting lives beyond numbers.  Some of us open games stores while others design board games. Recently released from R&D Games through Game Salute and generating quite the buzz is Keyflower .  One of this games' designers is Richard Breese an accountant who in his 'spare' time designs board games.
R&D Games/Game Salute

Keyflower is played over the 4 seasons; spring, summer, fall, and winter.  Each player begins the game with a home tile and an initial random team of 8 workers of various colors. The workers are used to bid for tiles to add to their village and to generate resources.  Each season more workers will arrive on the Keyflower and her sister boats and new tiles will be available for auction.  The player whose village and workers generate the most victory points wins the game.  Keyflower has an interesting worker placement mechanic where workers are used for both bidding and for taking actions.  Part of the strategy is to maximize the size and color makeup of your worker pool while minimizing your opponents worker pool.

Keyflower presents players with many different challenges and each game will be different due to the mix of village tiles which appear in that particular game.
