Game Arrivals: July 13th


Here's a look at the exciting games that came in this week:



 New Game!
Round House
Deep Water Games
New from Deep Water Games is Round House, an economic game that is long on strategy, low on luck, and has an interesting 2-tiered roundel mechanism. Round House is centered on a type of Chinese rural dwellings dating back to 17th century Ming dynasty  The Round House served as housing and protection for its residents under unified culture and commerce - a village within walls.  By cleverly navigating pawns around the Round House and manipulating faithful family members, players assume the role of the head of a family attempting to lead their members to glory. 

Round House
Publisher Description:
Players will move their family leader token clockwise around the round house, from room to room, and dispatch their assistants to perform all sorts of actions.  Each room will have actions that players can take in order to collect resources, recruit experts, and fulfill order cards. Doing these things will gain prestige points. When a family leader token moves to the Ancestral Hall stand, it must stop its movement, and the active player must take their family to the temple to worship their ancestors and leave one member behind to serve the temple. Through this act, the player will gain resources, amulets, and prestige points. Once a certain number of assistants in the temple has been reached a certain number, the game will come to an end and prestige points will be calculated. Whoever earns the most prestige points is the winner.

Round House has plenty of replayability due to the variable setup including contracts, experts, amulets, temples, and especially the modular outer ring of the roundel.
