Welcome to our weekly newsletter!
We're please to finally be stocking games from Ravensburger & ThinkFun - initially we have a lot of kids games including 6 variants of Labyrinth, but it means we will be able to stock Castles of Burgandy, Villainous and Jaws later this year! :D
Here are some of this week's highlights....
Terror Below (In stock now)
Terror Below is a game of government experiments gone wild in the Nevada desert. The faster you move, the more vibrations you make, attracting the attention of the vicious worms underground. Navigate the difficult terrain to collect valuable worm eggs and deliver them to locations around town to claim bounties. If you're feeling lucky, collect items and weapons to go hunt 'em.
The goal of Terror Below is to be the first player to score 20 victory points (VP) by collecting worm eggs and delivering them to locations around town — or alternatively, by hunting down and killing those vicious worms.
During the game, your squad of unlikely heroes will visit locations around the small desert town to find bounties, scavenge for weapons, and try to survive as you distract the worms. Eventually, those worms will attack. If you are in their path of destruction, you better be prepared for a fight!
£36.99 (RRP is £39.99)
Codenames : Disney Family Edition (in stock now)
In Codenames, two teams compete to see who can guess all of their words correctly first — but those words are hiding in plain sight in a 5x5 or grid that includes the words of the other team, neutral words, and an game over card that will cause you to lose the game immediately if you guess it. One person on each team is a spymaster and only these two know which words belong to each team. Spymasters take turns giving one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. Their teammates try to guess words of the right color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team — and everyone wants to avoid the game over card. This version also comes with 4x4 grid cards with no game over spot to make it more accessible for families and children.
The Disney Family Edition of Codenames combines the hit social word game with some of Disney’s most beloved properties from the past 90 years. Including both pictures and words, it’s family fun for Disney fans of all ages.Codenames: Disney Family Edition keeps the Codenames gameplay, while featuring characters and locations from over 90 years of Disney and Pixar films..
We also have Codenames : Marvel edition in stock as well!
The Grimm Masquerade (in stock now)
The Beast has invited you to his castle for a Masquerade. When you enter, you are magically transformed into the identity of another character from The Grimm Forest! The Beast enjoys his antics!
Players will be outed if they are given 2 artifacts of their bane, but can win the magical masquerade if they are able to collect 3 artifacts of their favor.
The Beast loves to watch the characters try and oust each other. Each player will draw 2 artifacts, keeping one for themselves and giving 1 to any player at the ball. This reveals a lot of information on both players. Why did you keep that artifact? Oh excuse me Snow White, I see you have 2 mirrors does that oust you as the Evil Queen?
£19.99 (RRP is £23.99)
Deep Sea Adventure (in stock now)
A group of poor explorers hoping to get rich quickly heads out to recover treasures from some undersea ruins. They're all rivals, but their budgets force them all to share a single rented submarine. In the rented submarine, they all have to share a single tank of air, as well. If they don't get back to the sub before they run out of air, they'll drop all their treasure. Now it's time to see who can bring home the greatest riches.
Gubs (Hot Restock!)
GUBS: A Game of Wit and Luck invites you to partake in the secret struggle of the Gubs.
Each player competes to build the largest, strongest colony by the time the three dreaded Letter Cards emerge from the deck and end the game.
Their world is a place filled with danger; from giant Omen Beetles who consume the delicate Gub Cities to Flash Floods to deadly Wasps, your gubs hardly stand a chance on their own... but arm them with Spears, let ride the valiant Toad Riders, build Mushroom Barricades and lead your colony through the forest underbrush and to victory.
Wit and Luck. You'll need them both. The gubs are counting on you.
