Passtally
Pandasaurus Games
Passtally is an abstract tile-laying game for 2 or 3 players. Players compete by strategically placing tiles on a central game trying to connect pathways to their markers at the edge of the board.  Tiles can be stacked to create multi-levels.  The higher the stack the greater the points. Upper level tiles must overlap two lower level tiles.  Points are scored after each player's turn. Points are based on the total number of passes over tiles a route makes from your connecting markers.  A pass value is determined by the level that the tile sits.  A tile on the second level is worth 2 passes, a tile on the third level is worth 3 passes, and so forth.  Play continues in this manner until one of the stacks of tiles is depleted or one of the three face up tiles cannot be placed.  Player with the most points wins.

Periodic
A Game Of The Elements
Genius Games

New from Genius Games is Periodic: A Game Of The Elements a board game that transforms the periodic table into a mental obstacle course.  In this scientifically accurate and cerebrally strategic board game, players race around the periodic table by choosing to spend or gain energy to activate one or more periodic trends.  By navigating trends like atomic number and atomic radii, players can research elements and score points.  Players can also pursue prized Academic Achievement points by ending their turn within specific elemental groups like metalloids and noble gasses.  The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
