Game Arrivals: Week of Feb. 26th - Mar. 2nd

Here is this week's exciting game arrivals:

 New Game
Welcome To Centerville
GMT Games
Welcome To Centerville is a dice-based board game that models the growth and management of a small city. Each player contributes to the development of Centerville scoring points in both wealth and prestige. However, striking a balance between your wealth points and your prestige points is key to winning as it is the lower of these two that will be your final score.

Welcome To Centerville

The board is divided into 4 areas of play: the town proper, the political offices, the available vocations, and the surrounding greenbelt. On your turn you will roll 6 custom dice.  You can reroll any or all of the dice 3 times before resolving your dice in the different areas on the board. Each area offers players opportunities to score wealth and prestige in various ways.
Such as, the town is divided into 4 colored zones and a central park space. Two of the colored zones generate wealth, the other two prestige. Control of the central park provides a player with +1 value in each of the four town zones. Controlling the length of a round is the time track. When an hour glass is rolled the time marker is advanced down the track after resolving your other dice. When the time marker reaches the end the round is overs and a scoring and reset phase occurs. Play then continues for a total of 3 rounds. During the scoring phases the offices, town and greenbelt score every round; vocations only during the final round. Collected milestones may be converted to either wealth or prestige points. Each player will have a wealth scoring marker and a prestige scoring marker. At the end of the the 3rd round a player's final score will be the lower of his/her wealth points or prestige points.

  New Game
Castles Of Burgundy
The Dice Game
The popular The Castles of Burgundy board game is now in a Dice game version.  The Castles of Burgundy: The Dice Game is a 15 to 30 minute game for 1 to 5 players.

Each player's game sheet consists of various colored hexes in a duchy, a bonus tracking area for completed sections of their duchy, a time track, and a score track.  The active player rolls 5 dice of which 2 have colors, 2 with numbers, and 1 with hour glasses.  The hour glass die moves the time marker the number of spaces as hour glasses rolled on the active players' sheet. Then all players use the die roll results of the remaining dice. Each player builds one combination;  one number die and one color die and marks a corresponding hex in their duchy.  Play continues in this manner.
There are 3 time columns. Each column represents a different scoring phase. When the hourglass gets to the bottom of the column that scoring phase ends and the next begins. Early on you score more points for individual sections while later on you'll get points for completing a total color. Player with the most points at the end of the 3rd scoring phase wins.
