Welcome to our weekly newsletter!
It's still a relatively quiet time of the year for new releases so we didn't send a newsletter last week - we don't like to email you unless we have something that we think might interest you....we all hate junk mail after all :)
This week's new release and those popular restocks follows below...
Teotihuacan : City of Gods (yet another restock of this VERY popular game)
Travel back in time to the greatest city in Mesoamerica. Witness the glory and the twilight of the powerful pre-Columbian civilization. Strategize, accrue wealth, gain the favour of the gods, and become the builder of the magnificent Pyramid of the Sun.
In Teotihuacan: City of Gods, each player commands a force of worker dice, which grow in strength with every move. On your turn, you move a worker around a modular board, always choosing one of two areas of the location tile you land on: one offering you an action (and a worker upgrade), the other providing you with a powerful bonus (but without an upgrade).
While managing their workforce and resources, players develop new technologies, climb the steps of the three great temples, build houses for the inhabitants of the city, and raise the legendary and breath-taking Pyramid of the Sun in the centre of the city.
Each game is played in three eras. As the dawn of the Aztecs comes closer, player efforts (and their ability to feed their workforce) are evaluated a total of three times. The player with the most fame is the winner.
Growing tomatoes, lettuce, or carrots on Iceland? What an absurd idea!
But still, whoever had that idea was a genius! Geothermal energy on the island allows you to cultivate the most unexpected fruits and vegetables — an oddity that no tourist would want to miss. You are not the only farmer in Reykholt who is looking to make a fortune out of this, however, so you better be quick! The tourist season in Reykholt is short, and there are more people coming every year. Making use of the right people and having the right vegetables at the right time in Reykholt will give you the advantage you need to win the race!
Long John Silver's crew has committed mutiny and has him cornered and tied up! Round after round, they question him about the location of his treasure and explore the island following his directions — or perhaps his misdirections? Who knows... The old sea dog is surely planning an escape, after all, after which he will definitely try to get his treasure back.
Treasure Island is a game of bluffing and adventure in which one player embodies Long John, trying to mislead the others in their search for his treasure. The hunt reaches its climax with Long John's escape, when he will make a final run to get the booty for himself!
Dice Forge : Rebellion Expansion
This is the first expansion for Dice Forge.
This expansion adds two different modules that can be added to the game. A total of 30 exploit cards as well as new die faces, new boards and an expansion to the sanctuary box are added to offer players new challenges, greater interaction and more replayability.
Best Wishes, Russ & Kelly
