Game Arrivals: Week of Dec. 4th - 9th

We've been busy filling those empty spaces on the shelves with more board games. Here is our latest arrivals:

   New Game!
When I Dream
Repos Productions
When I Dream is an interesting storytelling deduction party game for 4 to 10 players.

Players take turns as the Dreamer who places a mask over their eyes.  The other players are Dream Spirits who each use a single word to describe the same card.  But beware the Sandman and other Boogeymen who will try to lead the Dreamer astray.

    Holiday Mini-Expansion!

Catan Santa Scenario
Catan Studio
Holiday up your Catan game this season with the Santa Scenario

Santa needs wool for his new coat and the coats of his elves. If you give Santa Claus wool on your turn, you may move him to a hex on the island of Catan. Once he arrives on the hex, he gives the settlers Christmas gifts and may even chase away the robber and/or to protect a hex! This expansion increases the strategic value of wool, which in the basic game is considered the least attractive commodity. 
This variant scenario is suitable as an add-on for up to 6 players and all expansions that include the robber.

Kingsburg has changed publishers. It is now published by Z-Man Games. Kingsburg 2nd Edition not only has new artwork but includes all 5 modules from the To Forge a Realm expansion and a new module: Alternate Advisor Rewards.

This is still the same worker placement game where players influence the king's advisors to gain resources, develop their province, and defend it from ruthless invaders.  After 5 years of governance, the player with the most prosperous province wins.
