Vinhos Deluxe Edition
Eagle-Gryphon Games
It's time to break out the fancy glasses! Vinhos is an economic game about wine making.  Players develop their estates with vineyards and wineries, producing the highest quality wines and selling them for profit and victory points.
The game takes place over six years as players work to expand their businesses in the different region of Portugal.  Hire skilled enologists and capable farmers to increase the quality of your wine, but keep a careful eye on the changing weather which will affect production at the beginning of each year.

This deluxe edition allows you to play 2 different versions of Vinhos: the Special Vintage 2016 and the 2010 Reserve.  The Special Vintage 2016 is less complex but with the same depth.  The 2010 Reserve has some new rules, concepts, and tiles.

   Back In Print!
Take It Easy!
Eagle-Gryphon Games
This is a new edition of an old family favorite.  It's a multi-player solitaire game in which each player individually completes a hexagon-shaped board with spots for 19 hexagon tiles.

One person (the caller, who may also play) randomly draws one of 27 tiles featuring colored/numbered pipes crossing in three directions. Each player then places a tile on his hexagonal board, with the goal of connecting the colored lines edge to edge. Placement continues and increasingly tough choices ensue until the hexes are filled, and scoring is calculated by multiplying the number on the tile with the number of tiles in the completed line.
