Game Arrivals: Week Ending Oct. 4th


Here are our recent arrivals of great games:



Crown Of Emara
Pegasus Spiele
New from Pegasus Spiele is Crown Of Emara, a worker placement, pick-up and deliver strategy game for one to four players.  Game play takes place over two modular boards.  

During the course of the game players aim to satisfy as many citizens as possible.  The citizen tracks a players' current Citizen Points on the scoring track.  Additionally, at the end of the game, all of a players' citizens require housing.  A players' Building tracks the current building points on the scoring track.  To win, players need to manage both the number of citizens and their housing.  A players' final score will be the lower of these two.

We have an open copy of Crown Of Emara available for you to come in and play while you are here.

Foothills
Lookout Games
Adding to our selection of 2-Player games is Foothills, a tactical card game that takes two players on a railway construction through Wales.  You will use your five action cards to collect resources, remove rubble, build track and stations, then use the spaces you unlocked to collect victory points.  A game mechanic twist is that the action cards are two-sided with one side showing the primary version of an action and the other side showing the secondary version of a different action.  When the primary side is played it is then flipped to the secondary side.

Charley Harper's
Spot the Birds
Pomegranate
Adding to our selection of kids games is Charley Harper's Spot the Birds, a board game aimed at ages 7 and older.

publisher description
Grab your binoculars and keep an eagle eye to the sky with Charley Harper's Spot the Birds.  It'll be a hoot!  Peregrinate through the board's five habitats - the Backyard, the Desert, the Woodland, the Wetland, and the Shores -  and track each bird you spot.  Along the way, you'll discover how to be a good bird steward.  But watch out - you'll need to dodge storms, avoid falling in a river, and beware of birds that poop on your head (if happens).  Be the first to the Bird Sanctuary, and you'll rule the roost!
