Last Minute Game Arrivals: Dec. 24, 2018


Ho Ho Ho, Santa's elves have made a last minute delivery for your last minute shopping. Surprise of all surprises,The Mind was included in this shipment.


The Mind
Pandasaurus Games
The Mind is a cooperative card game of synchronization which relies on your sense of time.
     All players form a single team. In the first round (level 1) each player receives 1 card, in the second round (level 2) they receive 2 cards, and so on. At each level the team members must put down all their cards in increasing order in the center of the table on an open stack, one after the other. The players do not take turns in any particular order. Whoever wants to put down a card, simply does so. Watch out, here’s where it gets interesting: the players must not disclose anything about their own cards - no sharing of information, no secret signals.
     The team is given a certain number of lives and throwing stars which are laid out openly on the table.... At any point during a level a player can suggest that a throwing star be played - this is signaled by raising a hand. If all the players agree, the throwing star is deployed and each player discards the lowest card in their hand by placing it face up to one side.

 New Game
The Quacks Of Quedlinburg
North Star Games
Winner of this year's Kennerspiel des Jahres (Gamer's Game of the Year) is The Quacks Of Quedlinburg, a strategic push-your-luck bag building game for 2 to 4 quacks and charlatans.
Welcome to Quedlinburg, where the best miracle doctors and quack surgeons from all across the land gather to brew their concoctions against smelly feet, homesickness, hiccups and relationship woes.  Every quack has their own special brew they hope will make them the best miracle doctor in the land!
In The Quacks Of Quedlinburg each player draws from their bag of potpourri ingredients and placing on their cauldron board until they think they have a special blend that's just right. They must be careful drawing too many special bad ingredients can cause their whole potion to blow up.  Do you stop early to impove your chances of making a better potion later that will win the day, or do you risk a big setback in order to get more money?
