June Game Highlight

We regularly add new games to our collection. Here’s a couple of recent additions. Stop in today and give them a try.

Dungeons & Dragons Rock Paper Wizard

Dungeons & Dragons: Rock Paper wizard

Players: 3-6
Play time: 30 Min
Ages: 14+

We had a lot more fun with this game than we expected. At first glance it looks like there’s a lot of hand gestures, but there are only every 4 at a time to choose from so it’s easy to do. I don’t recall the cards being non-PG, so you can probably play with a younger audience than suggested. It’s pretty easy to pick up. First to collect 25 Gold wins.

Come in and try it out today. For more details check it out on bgg.

Zangle!

Zangle!

Players: 1-6
Play time: 45 Min
Ages: 6+

From the same family of games as SET, this a good one for the whole family. Get rid of your cards first by building the shapes in the middle of the table with 2 or more of your cards. Good for pattern recognition, try it out with your kids next time you bring the family in.

For more details check it out on bgg.

The Binding of Isaac Four Souls

Players: 2-4
Play time: 30–60 Min
Ages: 13+

The Binding of Isaac Four Souls

A fun and fairly quick card game for up to 4. Defeat the tougher monsters to capture their souls, first to earn 4 souls wins. If you’ve played Munchkin, you may enjoy trying this one out. It has familiar aspects of loot, monsters, cooperation and betrayal.

Come in and try it out today. For more details check it out on bgg or at www.foursoulsspoiler.com/.
