More new games have arrived!

   New Game!

New from Iello is Pyramids, a clever card drafting and necropolis building card game for 2 to 5 players.

Each player is the architect of an entire necropolis tasked with constructing a Pyramid, an Obelisk, and a Tomb. The key is to select the best combination of cards that will optimize the points each of your structures will score. On each round players will select a god tile.  The god tile will determine player order for selecting two cards from the stone quarry, and how many and where you will place these cards within your necropolis.
