Game Arrivals: Week Ending Feb. 23rd


Here is this week's exciting game arrivals:




   New Game!
Tak
University  Edition

Cheapass Games
Tak is a 2-player abstract game introduced in Patrick Rothfuss' novel, The Wise Man's Fear

This compact version is easy to learn how to play but provides plenty of depth.  Players take turns either adding a piece to the board, or moving a stack of pieces under their control.  Playing a flat piece adds to your road, while playing a piece in the standing position creates a wall, and your capstone piece counts as your road and a blocker. To win, a player must create a line of pieces connecting opposite sides of the board.

Traverse the fringes of the galaxy on a quest to discover new worlds and rebuild your empire. Conquer the fringe of the galaxy using Might or Diplomacy. Manage a hand of cards, each of which adds to an immersive, unfolding narrative.

You'll find ancient ruins, stop planetary wars, transport desperate leaders to distant locales, and rescue worlds from imminent invasion.
