Just in from the designers of the detective game Mr. Jack is Le Fantôme de l' Opéra, a 2-player game of deduction.

The game features a stylist board with 10 rooms and 8 characters each with their own special ability.  One player randomly chooses a character to be the Phantom . The other player becomes the investigator whose only job is isolate and catch the Phantom. The Phantom can cause mischief if that character is alone in a room or in a room with the lights out.  If the Phantom can continue to cause mischief and avoid being identified he/she wins the game.

New in from Ravensburger is Start 11, a tile laying family game for 2 to 4 players.
Start 11
    Play starts with an 11 numbered tile, hence the name Start 11.   Each player tries to be the first to get rid of all of their tiles by placing them on the four different-colored number rows of the game board. Players must plan their strategy as the tiles they place may help their opponents to win. Bridges and bonus tiles adds a twist to the game.  Once a player has gotten rid of their last tile the game ends and that player is the winner. 
     Or, you may continue the game by playing as many rounds as there are players.  At the end of each round the other players would then score minus points equaled to the value of tiles left in their tile holders. The player with the least minus points at the end of the game wins.
