Game Arrivals: Aug. 6th - 16th

Come in and see what games are now in stock.


The following new games and game expansion arrived:


Newly released from Laboratory Games is Province, a 2-player micro game.  In this game players will vie for power as they settle a new provincial town. They will need to control growth as they develop the town by building camps, bank, smithies and harbors.

Province is a two player game where you must strategically manage your resources and workers to build, complete goals, and score the most victory points to win! The game features a communal worker pool representing the available workers in your town. Players move their workers to generate resources (Labor and Coin) that are used to build the various Structures, which in turn effect resource generation. But your opponent can also move the workers leaving you without the resources you need!

Another new game is Qwixx from Gamewright.  Qwixx is a fast family dice game for 2-4 players.

Players are involved with every roll of the dice.  The object of the game is to cross off as many numbers in the 4 different colored rows as possible on their score sheet. The more numbers in a particular color row the higher the score.
Sound easy?  You must mark off numbers in each row from left-to-right.  You may skip numbers in a particular row, but any numbers skipped over may not be marked off later.  A player who has marked off at least 5 numbers in a particular color row may lock it. This row is now finished and closed off for all the players and no more numbers may be marked off in this color in any of the subsequent rounds. The key to winning is to utilize the dice rolls to maximize points and timing as to when to close rows.
