Game Arrivals: Nov. 20th - Dec. 1st



Games, games and more games are arriving as we work to have all of your favorite and must-have games available for your holiday shopping. 


Here is our most recent arrivals:




   New Game!
Azul
Plan B Games

Inspired by King Manuel I of Portugal and his fascination for decorative wall tiles, 
Azul is a colorful tile-laying abstract game. It is designed for 2 to 4 players and plays in 30 to 45 minutes.

Players take turns drafting colored tiles from suppliers to their player board. Later in the round, players score points based on how they've placed their tiles to decorate the palace. Extra points are scored for specific patterns and completing sets; wasted supplies harm the player's score. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Doctor Who Fluxx
It all begins with one basic rule: Draw one card, Play one card. You start with a hand of three cards... add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change from how many cards are drawn, played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.
