Game Arrivals: Week of Dec. 7th - 13th

Another new game has arrived just in time for Christmas.  From AEG is Planes, a family friendly strategy game.

You and your party are at the airport trying to board your plane, but must first check your luggage, pass security and grab some food, all while avoiding getting bogged down by the hustle and bustle of the terminal! Your cards not only allow you to take special actions in order to board your plane more quickly, but they will also allow you to score goals, which are your key to victory.

Also back in stock in time for Christmas is La Isa, the latest game from designer Stefan Feld (Bora Bora, Castles of Burgundy, Burges, Rialto, Amerigo and more).

La Isla

In La Isa you have a team of 5 explorers that you will send to the tropical island of La Isla searching and collecting creatures considered extinct ages ago. You will play cards to perform special functions, receive key resources, and to score victory points for the creatures you have collected.  

The game board is made up of various shaped tiles placed randomly around a 10-sided central tile. There are 45 animal tokens consisting of 5 different types. Only 35 of the animal tokens will be in play in a given game. Each player will have a team of 6 figurine explorers one of which will be a scoring marker.
