What’s On Our Demo Table? (August 4th, 2017)

We try and keep, at least, three games open on our demo table for our customers look at and demo. Check out what we have out this weekend!

 

Terraforming Mars

Designer: Jacob Fryxelius

Players: 1-5

Playing Time: 90-120 min

 

 

“In the 2400s, mankind begins to terraform the planet Mars. Giant corporations, sponsored by the World Government on Earth, initiate huge projects to raise the temperature, the oxygen level, and the ocean coverage until the environment is habitable. In Terraforming Mars, you play one of those corporations and work together in the terraforming process, but compete for getting victory points that are awarded not only for your contribution to the terraforming, but also for advancing human infrastructure throughout the solar system, and doing other commendable things.” – via Board Game Geek

 

Cottage Garden

Designer: Uwe Rosenberg

Players: 1-4

Playing Time: 45-60 min

 

 

“In Cottage Garden, you compete in the art of gardening and are working two beds with a variety of flowers. Whenever no unplanted box is visible on a bed, you have completed it, then you count your points and replace it with a fresh, unplanted bed. You gain points for all of the visible plant pots and planting bells.” – via Board Game Geek

 

Dixit

Designer: Jean-Louis Roubira

Players: 3-6

Playing Time: 30 min

 

 

“One player is the storyteller for the turn and looks at the images on the 6 cards in her hand. From one of these, she makes up a sentence and says it out loud (without showing the card to the other players). Each other player selects the card in their hands which best matches the sentence and gives the selected card to the storyteller, without showing it to the others. The storyteller shuffles her card with all the received cards. All pictures are shown face up and every player has to bet upon which picture was the storyteller’s. If nobody or everybody finds the correct card, the storyteller scores 0, and each of the other players scores 2. Otherwise the storyteller and whoever found the correct answer score 3. Players score 1 point for every vote for their own card.” – via Board Game Geek

 

Ticket to Ride

Designer: Alan R. Moon

Players: 2-5

Playing Time: 30 – 60 min

 

 

“With elegantly simple gameplay, Ticket to Ride can be learned in under 15 minutes, while providing players with intense strategic and tactical decisions every turn. Players collect cards of various types of train cars they then use to claim railway routes in North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who fulfill Destination Tickets – goal cards that connect distant cities; and to the player who builds the longest continuous route.” – via Board Game Geek
