Game Arrivals: March 3rd - 12th

Two new games from Final Frontier Games and one from Wizards of the Cost plus plenty of restocks have arrived!

Here's a look at look at what's new:

Final Frontier Games
Coloma is themed on the western frontier town where gold was first discovered at Sutter's Mill kicking off the California Gold Rush.  Players are pioneers who have have arrived in this fast-growing boomtown in the hopes of striking it rich.  They will prospect for gold, use windfalls to recruit workers, rustle up horses, and establish businesses while trying not to go bust.


Coloma is a fast-moving strategy game with many ways to win.  It offers unique twists on simultaneous action-selection, resource management, and engine-building.  The buildings in your tableau allow you to become more efficient, gain extra actions, and bend the rules to your advantage.  With these and the dynamically-scoring Bridge tiles, you can fine tune your gears to suit your individual play style.

Players: 1-6
Time: 60-90 min.

A Fistful Of Meeples is another new wild west-themed game in from Final Frontier Games.  This is a Mancala meets worker-placement game. Played on a central board representing the town street.  On a turn you'll grab a Fistful of Meeples and place them around the street.  Then you'll take actions such as mining for gold, building businesses, busting robbers, and dueling in showdowns. The meeples come in four different colors and your actions are determined by the color of the meeple and the location.  After the dust has settled, the player with the most points wins.

Players: 2-4
Time: 30 min.
