Our inventory is perhaps a bit chaotic right now as we figure out what stuff we want to carry long term, but I for one am completely okay with this because it means we are constantly getting in new and exciting games I’ve never heard of.

New to us this week:

  • Catan Junior
  • Dutch Blitz (and expansion pack)
  • Hanabi
  • Innovation (and expansions)
  • Taboo
  • Tokaido

Tokaido
“TOKAIDO is a game for 2 to 5 players, with unique atmosphere and aesthetics, in which the players are pilgrims on a journey along the legendary East Sea Road of Japan. Along the way, you will try to collect the most beautiful souvenirs, discover glorious vistas, enjoy enriching encounters, soak in soothing hot springs, sample sumptuous cuisine, and much more!”
Unique atmosphere and aesthetics is right, this game is beautiful. Half game, half work of art. We’ve also got the crossroads expansion in stock, come check them out.

In preparation for the highly anticipated release of Sharknado 2 this Wednesday (July 30), we will be bringing in new copies of Survive and its expansions this week.  If you’ve never waded through the shark/whale/monster infested waters of Atlantis, this Friday is the perfect time to learn.  Friday (7-9pm), we will kraken open all the expansions and play through the game during Open Game Night.  It’s a quick game to play and even quicker to learn so come on by.

If you haven’t been to our game nights/afternoons yet, they are a great way to learn new games.  I learned Quarriors last week after a quick game which was way more fun than trying to get through the 10 page rule book.

I can’t count how many times someone grabbed the Marvel Deck Building game off the shelf and asked “Do you have the DC version of this?” Well ask no more!

Available this weekend, the 10th anniversary edition of Ticket To Ride. Now with 50% more game board and  custom trains in tin boxes for more of the “old timey” feel.  Call or email now to reserve your copy.

This special 10th Anniversary Edition is a “must-have” for Ticket to Ride fans. The game play remains faithful to the original classic US map version – but the new design, illustrations, oversized map and especially the new custom trains and tin storage boxes – take the Ticket to Ride experience to a whole new level.
