The world of horseracing has long been associated with cheating in all its forms. But few games ever attempt to simulate that aspect. Players are assigned a horse and must move it around the track by rolling a single die. This would be rather boring if the game didn’t allow for the players to bet on another player’s horse, so the dilemma is whether or not to move your horse badly just to make it easier for the horse you bet on to win. Even that could be boring, but then each player is issued cards that allow them to commit dirty tricks, for instance making a horse fall or forcing the winner to take a drug test. All in all, it makes for some very interesting racing.
An auction based game.
In each round a different player is the auctioneer and auctions off, primarily, factories with a unique bidding mechanism. Factories bring points and produce raw materials. Building factories themselves cost money and raw materials. But they are in short supply, so you need to manage your resources well. Linked factories and other improvements bring in extra points at the end of the game.
The player with the most points wins.
In Apocalypse Chaos, your ship has been surrounded by a hostile alien race and the situation looks dire, but you and your crew ain’t going down without a fight! You must work together to contest the onslaught of enemy forces, recover items of scientific interest, rescue the innocent, escape imprisonment, and destroy the alien leader.
The shadow of Bhaal has come over Baldur’s Gate, summoning monsters and other horrors from the darkness!
As you build and explore the iconic city’s dark alleys and deadly catacombs, you must work with your fellow adventurers to survive the terrors ahead. That is, until some horrific evil turns one — or possibly more — of you against each other. Was it a mind flayer’s psionic blast or the whisperings of a deranged ghost that caused your allies to turn traitor? You have no choice but to keep your enemies close!
Based on the award-winning Betrayal at House on the Hill board game, in Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate you’ll return to Baldur’s Gate again and again thanks to the fifty included scenarios only to discover it’s never the same game twice.
Can you and your party survive the madness, or will you succumb to the mayhem and split (or slaughter!) the party?
Try to get your partner to say as many words from a particular category written on the cards within the thirty second time limit, you may only pass once. Move your team pawn forward a number of spaces on the board equal to the number of words you got correct. If you land on an Orange or Red space, spin the spinner for a chance to move yourself 2 or 3 spaces forward, or move an opponent piece 2 or 3 spaces back. If you land on a spade space, try to get you team mate to say the word on the card before any other team can say it. Whoever answers correctly gets a turn immediately.
Categories include Person, World, Object, Action, Nature and Random. First team to make it around the board and successfully answer a spade category (chosen from any of the above) wins the game.
Architects of the West Kingdom is set at the end of the Carolingian Empire, circa 850 AD. As royal architects, players compete to impress their King and maintain their noble status by constructing various landmarks throughout his newly appointed domain. Players need to collect raw materials, hire apprentices, and keep a watchful eye on their workforce. These are treacherous times, and rival architects will stop at nothing to slow your progress. Will you remain virtuous, or be found in the company of thieves and black marketeers?
The aim of Architects of the West Kingdom is to be the player with the most victory points (VP) at game’s end. Points are gained by constructing various buildings and advancing work on the Archbishop’s cathedral. Throughout the game, players need to make a lot of moral decisions. However, only at game’s end will their virtue be judged. A few underhanded deals here and there might not seem like much, but fall too far and you will be punished. The game ends once a set number of constructions have been completed.
