A Great Two Player Game

27+30min

Blokus Duo, a new addition to our library is a great two player game. The game play is very similar to the original except players start at the designated starting spaces more towards the middle of the game board. This, along with the smaller playing area, forces a bit faster interaction with your opponent. With just two colours this version is a bit easier for a new player to grasp the concepts of the game, as opposed to the two-player variant in the original.

Game play is similar with pieces laid corner to corner. The same colour pieces cannot overlap. Players get a bonus 15 points if they use all of their pieces and a bonus 5 points if their last piece played is the single square. Players lose 1 point for each square on any unused pieces. The player with the most points wins.

Super fast past cooperative game. Everyone contributes a clue to the active player. With a Scattergories style twist clues are written in secret and any matching clues are cancelled out. Players will need to be creative with their clues to make sure the active player can see them. A game is played with just 13 cards so it’s a fast play with lots of fun. Come give it a try today at Games on Tap, the best board game cafe in Waterloo!

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.

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.
