Here is a look at the games that came in this past week:


   New Game Arrival!
T.I.M.E. Stories
Space Cowboys
T.I.M.E. Stories is a co-operative narrative board game. The latest board game from Space Cowboys who did the hit game Splendor.
Players will live adventures in various worlds, through the eyes and characteristics of their character. They will have to fight, search, discuss, and be clever and convincing to the characters they meet… and sometimes even the other agents. Each player will be able to include the dose of “roleplay” they want into the character they’ll have chosen. But they will also need to optimize their actions.


Each scenario contains a new world, new characters, new rules, and new surprises. This basic box contains the T.I.M.E Stories system and the Asylum scenario.

       New Game Arrival!
Between Two Cities
Stonemaier Games
Between Two Cities is a tile-drafting game for 3 to 7 players with an interesting game mechanic.  Each tile is part of a city. You work with the player on your left to build one city center while simultaneously working with the player on your right to build a second city center.  On each turn you select two tiles from your hand, reveal them, then work with your partners to place one of you selected tiles into each of your two cities.

At the end of the game, each city is scored for its architectural grandiosity.  Your final score is the lower of the scores of the two cities you helped design.  The player with the highest score wins.

       New Game Expansion!
Munchkin Kittens
Steve Jackson Games

Munchkin Kittens is the latest blister pack expansion for the base game, Munchkin.
