Toy(794819422909:Toys And Games), Imhotep Builder Of Egypt Board Game (0814743011816:Thames Kosmos), Imhotep. the legendary architect of the egyptian monuments. his awe-inspiring structures and brutal tactics earned him divine status among ancient egyptians. can you match his ruthless determination to build the most revered monuments? to do this, you will need to transport stone blocks on ships from your quarry to different construction sites. but you alone do not choose where the ships go. your opponents have monumental plans of their own and want to prevent your success. a fierce competition for the precious stone resources plays out. only with the right strategy and a little luck can you succeed. in imhotep, the players take on the roles of ancient egyptian architects. over six rounds, they try to transport their stone blocks to end up in the most valuable positions at five construction sites: pyramid, obelisk, chamber tomb, temple, and market. but a player can only choose one of three actions in a turn: excavate a new stone block from the quarry, load a block onto a ship, or move a ship to a construction site. from there, the massive stone blocks must be unloaded in order from bow to stern and placed on the sites in preset sequences. depending on where the blocks end up, players earn different point values either immediately or at the end of the game. in each turn, you must weigh your options for getting your own stones into place and thwarting your opponents' placement plans. you must get your blocks to the right places, in the right order, at the right time to be the greatest architect..

Super fun game! i really like this game. It is quite simple in concept but really deep in gameplay. This game was a spiel des jahres (game of the year) award nominee for 2016 and though it didn't win i really feel that it should have. Such a fun game. The components are stellar, nice chunky cubes, solid cardboard tiles, and solid finish cards. The game itself revolves around simple decisions on ones turn they may, get more blocks, place blocks, or move boats. But those simple decisions can be extremely important. Boats can be shipped to one of several destinations and those locations will then score immediately, end of game, or end of round as specified. Scoring can be a bit fiddly however, the components are extremely well marked and with a minor amount of background knowledge one could probably play this game without even reading the rules. Scoring for tiles is clearly labeled on the tiles. I also feel that the game moves quickly and games are over in a flash making it easy to play another round or another game during game nights. . This one is a real home run!

Isle of Skye Board Game

Isle of skye, one of the most beautiful places in the world: soft sand  beaches, gently sloping hills, impressive  mountains: the landscape of isle of skye is breathtaking and fascinates everyone.  in this tile-laying game 2 to 5 players are the chieftains of 5 famous clans. The players try to build their little kingdoms to score as many points as possible. But in each game only 4 of the 16 scoring cards will be scored. Each game is different and leads to different tactics and strategies.  to have enough money is useful in all games: in each turn the players can buy a tile from another player. The seller determines the price,  but to do it wisely is the most interesting part of this game: a high price will lead to wealth, if someone buys this tile, but if there's no buyer, the seller will lose the money spend on this tile.  and in the end the player with the best kingdom will become the sovereign of the island, not the richest player!  isle of skye is a gateway game for the whole family. With a playing time around 45 minutes, a huge variability and easy rules it's a perfect game for all players. The awesome illustrations by klemens franz brings all the atmosphere of the scottish island on your table.

Potion Explosion Board Game

I think this is a great game for several reasons; and personally like it better than splendor. . I like it because the game is easy to learn and teach. The rules book is short, well written, and has helpful well labeled images. When you get this game you're playing basically within minutes. The most time consuming part is assembling the box that houses the marbles, and that doesn't take very long. This game however, in my opinion is better than the highly popular splendor. It's better because the replayability of this game will outlast that of splendor. Outlast it because this game has 8 different types of potions and only 6 are used. So, each game varies slightly with the combination of potions/powers being used. Splendor doesn't have varying powers, it's basically like playing an even-keeled game of checkers, which is bit more interesting because it's an engine building game, were efficiency is the name of the game. The engine building in splendor feels a bit limited because it's a bit slow. In splendor you have 3 rows of 4 cards, and your basically stuck in the bottom level 1 row for the majority of the game and when you finally built a good engine, it feels like there's only a few turns left were you get to do those awesome combos and then the game is done. Also, in splendor you need to do a lot of shuffling and shuffle pretty damn good. Otherwise when you refill the rows you'll end up with a lack of variety in gems/options, resulting in a bad turn. In potion explosion you have 5 different columns of marbles to choose from as well as help tokens, which allows you to set up some amazing combos from the start of the game. When you trigger the combos it feels very satisfying, and it's fun collecting the marbles and watching them slide down the track refilling the columns. There's always good options in this game and it feels great when you activate a potion and that potion helps you complete another potion. The games i've played of this have been very close, i've played my little brother about 6 or 7 times and in most of our games the point difference lied between 1-3 points. And that's another good point about this game, a kid can play an adult and the kid has a good chance of winning, i don't have to go easy on my opponent. But the same is pretty much true in splendor, my win to lose ratio in both games have been about the same when playing my kid brother. I guess another good point is that the iconography on the potion cards is intuitive, simple to understand. Both splendor and potion explosion are language independent which is another good selling point. You can decide to get either board game, both are good, but all i'm saying is that splendor will probably burn you out eventually that was the case for both me and my brother, both of us enjoy potion explosion more. And if you end up buying potion explosion and not liking it, you can always sell it, i think this game will retain it's value and down the road even increase in value. It's the type of game that's more likely to be found out of print since, this type of game is different for the publisher coolminiornot, which typically makes miniature games. If this game doesn't sell well it could easily become discontinued and coolminiornot could just fall back to doing primarily miniature games again. Splendor on the other-hand can be found anywhere, the price on it always fluctuates and it's always on sale, especially on days like black friday. There's not many good board games in the puzzly category, it'd be a shame to not own this in your collection.

It's senior year at horribilarum sorcery academy for witty witches and wizards. All the hard work and studying comes down to this: the final exams! under the helpful, tutelage of the headmaster, players have learned how to handle volatile ingredients and turn them into fantastical potions! by pulling ingredients like unicorn tears and fairy dandruff, represented by marbles, out of the potion dispenser, the higher up ingredients slide down to fill in the gap. Players try to make the same ingredients smash together causing explosions and big turn combinations. Once all the necessary ingredients have been collected, players complete the potion for points and a special ability. The player with the most points graduates head of the class!

Addicting fun game that's easy to learn and explain. Totally a worthwhile game to buy for the family. And the preview video is the quickest way to explain the game. I read the rules in the book. And explaining the game was 100% faster using the video they give (b/c in person, you have to play with the marbles to give examples and your fingers and hands get in the way, the video also gives visual effects like explosions & highlights. ). . Quality of game parts: some reviews say to glue the box together. I agree with this recommendation. But so far, i haven't had the need to glue it together yet. Also about 1-2% of the marbles seem to have shape issues. I. E. I have 1 or 2 marbles out of the 80+ marbles that have a rounded flat side. But they still roll 90% of the time and when they stick, just jostle the box and it'll move. So i don't see this an issue. As they give you an additional 8 marbles to replace an missing / damaged ones. Same goes for the paint jobs. One of my yellows is see through. But again, it doesn't hurt the game, just my ocd lol. -Notice from N. Eva, Bretagne

This game is super fun. The adults love it and my 7yr old was able to pick up the rules right away. This is an easy to teach game as well. Set up is quick after you build the marble dispenser. I recommend hot gluing it after you build it so it doesn't come apart. We are analog gamers who play many "involved" games but this is perfect when you want to play something light and quick with kids, family or non gamers.

Potion-explosion-board-game-(cmon) set picture

- T. HaywardInitial setup of this game takes a little bit of time because you are literally constructing a cardboard container/slide to house the marbles. Once this is done, setting up a game to play is super fast. . The game plays a lot like candy crush/bejeweled in which you're removing a marble from a track and trying to cause matching colored marbles to hit so you can take them and spend them on recipes that require varying amounts of the 4 different colored marbles it the game. . Super easy to learn and teach and games go quickly. Also includes some spare marbles in case some get lost.

By far one of thee best games i have purchased on a long time. The family is a huge board game family and this seems to be out go to game for months now. If you like candy crush you'll love this game as it has the same idea. Here is a like to one of my favorite youtube channels "watch it played" where ryan does a fantastic job showing you how to play it. Its guaranteed hours of fun. . .

Patchwork Board Game

Patchwork is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design. In the past, it was a way to make use of leftover pieces of cloth to create clothing and quilts. Today, patchwork is a form of art, in which the designers use precious fabrics to create beautiful textiles. The use of uneven pieces of fabric in particular can result in real masterpieces and is therefore being practiced by a large number of textile artists. To create a beautiful quilt, however, requires effort and time, but the available patches just do not want to fit together. So choose your patches carefully and keep a healthy supply of buttons to not only finish your quilt, but to make it better and more beautiful than your opponent s.

Sushi Go Party Card Game

It's cute! it's sushi! together, they're a party! . . This is a pass-and-play card game. Each round every player starts with a hand of cards. You play one card, then pass your entire hand to the left. When all the cards are played, you score the cards you played. Three rounds and you're done. . It's easy to teach to beginners, but there is enough strategy to keep things interesting. Knowing what to play and what to pass, and guessing what your opponents will play, is where you win or lose. . The game comes in a good size metal tin with an insert to keep the different types of cards organized. The tin can be shoved into a bag or suitcase and taken anywhere without fear of damage or mixed up parts. The cards (and game tin) are colorful, cute, and attractive. There is a sushi go! game out there, but you want this one. It has a lot of different cards in it, allowing for loads of replay value as you can have a different "menu" each time. . And for the price? this is an amazing deal. It would be worth it for twice the cost. . My only grumble is that the rule book is just a few millimeters too large for the tin. The corners get mushed when you put it away. But if that bothers you, just do what i did and trim it slightly with a metal ruler and a click-knife. Oh, and you can't put sleeves on the cards and still have them fit into the slots in the insert.

It's a party platter of mega maki, super sashimi, and endless edamame in this expanded version of the best-selling card game. You still earn points by picking winning sushi combos, but now you can customize each game by choosing a la carte from a menu of more than 20 delectable dishes. What's more, up to 8 players can join in on the sushi-feast let the good times roll! .

Broke it out last night, and played a few rounds with the family. We have kids ages 7 through 19, so finding a game that is good for everyone is tough, but everyone in our family loved it. We only tried the beginning deck combination of cards, but i could see playing with that set up plenty of times without getting bored, but there are so many combinations to make that i believe the game will have very good "replayability. " everyone picked it up really fast, and our 7 year-old didn't even lose. I did, but then again, i was taking risks, and everyone loves to get dad! -Notice from Y. Parker, Southwark

This game is incredibly fun. We loved sushi go! , but we were bummed that only 5 people could play as we are a family of 6. When i saw a new version that allowed for more players, i knew we had to have it! this one adds some really fun new game play. The only reason i can't give it 5 stars is because after only 3 games played, the cards are rubbing off color onto other cards. I'm hoping to find a way to contact gamewright and let them know about the issue. Hopefully it was just a bad batch print-wise?

Sushi-go-party-card-game-(gamewright) set picture

- T. IsabelLove this game! it comes with more cards and new types of sushi items! i decided to buy this game after playing the orginal sushi go. At first i wanted to order the regular game but came across sushi go party and found out that you can include up to 8 players so i ordered this one! yayyy i'm so glad i bought the extended pack no regrets! they have all the old cards mixed in with a bunch of new ones so it makes the game more interesting! . . The party pack also comes with a board so it's makes it easier to keep track of everyone's points! if you loved the original sushi go game you'll love this one! your family will love it! you friends will love it! great for all ages! plus it's so cute!

As someone who loved the original sushi go! , i was pretty excited to hear that a deluxe version was out. Here are my thoughts about it:. Still great for casual players, but the added variety (you use 7 out of 22 different card types, plus the nigiri cards, for each game) offers a lot more replayability. The expanded player cap (8 players instead of 5) is fantastic for larger groups, previously at game nights i'd have 7 or 8 and would have to settle for tsuro or the resistance, but sushi go party! has become my go-to game for those scenarios. The player board is a nice addition, allowing everyone to see what cards are in play and eliminating the need for paper/pen scoring is convenient. Some of the new cards are a lot of fun, and the 2-player variant in the rulebook is way better than 2-player original sushi go. . The only complaint i have is that the card quality is severely lacking, at least compared to the original, which is why i'm rating it 4 stars instead of 5. Either way, if you play with medium-to-large groups of casual players, i'd certainly recommend picking this up.

Codenames

Codenames is a social word game with a simple premise and challenging game play. Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their codenames. The teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the table. Their teammates try to guess words of their color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin. The game works very well with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help. Or you can add more players if you prefer lively discussion. There is also a cooperative variant where a single team tries to achieve the highest score they can by playing against the game itself.

I like this game because it's simple to learn but difficult to master. Gameplay is really elegant with only one main game mechanic. It makes a great gateway game for this reason. . The rest of my remarks are addressed to those who consider themselves experienced euro gamers. This is a worker-placement game with an interest mechanic for doing the placement (sailing the ships, but your opponent if free to sail any ship - even ones that have your blocks on them). This is almost a pure game theorist's delight; there's a lot of: if i do this, then he'll do that, but if i don't, then he'll do that other thing, and then. The only significant randomness in the game is the bonus cards, but they are dealt face up into a shared pool at the beginning of the round, so from that point on, it's just game theory. There is also randomness arising from changing which ships appear in each round, but i don't believe that affects play significantly. . However, i think that replayability is somewhat limited, so that's why i'm giving 4 stars instead of 5. The game intends for the reversible sides of the building sites to add replayability, but they don't really change the overall strategy that much. I've played it with my kids (12 and 15) 3 or 4 times, and i can tell that if it weren't such a quick game - we can play it in under 30 minutes - there'd probably be little enthusiasm for playing it much more. But it makes a good "quickie" game when we don't have time for something more involved. . Summary: for non-gamers, this is a great gateway to "euro" style games. For hard-core gamers: buy it as a filler game, but don't expect to base a game night around this one.

Very enjoyable. You load your building blocks onto boats, then dock them by various projects. You can add your blocks, sail to an advantageous project, or dock your opponents blocks to their disadvantage.

F. Lawrence, Arizona

Really cool game once you get the hang of it!

I. Mahood, Rheinland-Pfalz says

Surprising amount of strategy to this game. Very easy to learn, but a lot of depth as you play more and more. It was a blast playing with 3 people, can't wait to try it with more!

K. Hannah, Utah says

Great game! lots of strategy and player screwage!

P. Morgan, Iowa

This is a great game, really easy to learn. Resource gathering, strategic moves, sometimes helping yourself, sometimes trying to derail the other players. So far we've only played with 2 players, but i imagine it'll be a lot of fun with 4 as well. . Just one thing, there was an additional item in the box. Fortunately, he's really cute so i'll keep him ; ) just kidding - my cat wanted to be part of the gang and feel like he was playing too. But he lacks opposable thumbs so he plays in boxes haha
