    Across the history of our world, great nations have been founded, risen to prominence, then slowly faded away as newer, more energetic groups sprang up to replace them. Rise of the Inkas takes this fascinating concept and wraps it in the classic game of Catan! Players begin with a single tribe, which grows and expands using roads, settlements, and cities. But the ultimate goal is to establish the great Inkan empire, and to do so, players must send their first two tribes into decline by removing all roads and covering settlements in vines. These settlements continue to provide resources but can be taken over by a cunning opponent! This mixes up traditional Catan gameplay by completely removing permanent settlement and encouraging players to seek fresh opportunities constantly. New rules and mechanics further spice up this epic rendition, providing a completely original Catan experience! Does not require Settlers of Catan. For 3-4 players. ~90-minute playtime.

    Granada, 1278. You and up to five other architects have been commissioned to create the most splendid palace and fortress complex in all of Spain: the Alhambra. Master builders and workers from all over have come to show off their skill and aid you in this projectfor substantial fees, of course. To make matters worse, all workers wish to be paid in their national currency!

    The objective of the game is to construct the most of certain types of buildings in your Alhambra: Pavilions, Gardens, Towers, and so on. Each turn, players perform some combination of buying building tiles, taking money, or redesigning the Alhambra. The trick is that all building tiles come with a variable currency and cost, and you dont get change (or get to keep buying) if you pay more than the necessary amount. Once you acquire tiles, you can add them to your existing palace. Tile walls represent another hazard to construction: certain building tiles include sections of wall which must be connected to other walls in the Alhambra. Making things more complicated are mid-game scoring rounds; throughout the game, randomly-placed scoring cards will be drawn from the money pile. These initiate a round of scoring, rewarding each player who currently has the most of a certain type of building. Once all building tiles are exhausted, the game ends, and a final scoring round takes place. Make sure to manage your resources carefully, lest a more successful architect snatch victory out from under you! Duration: 45-60 minutes. 2-6 players. Winner of a Spiel des Jahres award in 2003.

    Board game of the year in 2012, this one does not disappoint! It boasts a good blend of luck and strategy, plenty of variation built in to randomize every game, and easy to learn gameplay that will appeal to the serious and light gamers alike. The goal of the game is to earn the most gold at the end of the game; however, the path to doing so is different every time. To set up the game, players choose four of the eight possible quadrants, each of which can go in any spot, and three of the ten possible Kingdom Builder cards, which determine how players earn gold. Each quadrant of the board is divided into hexagons of seven different terrain types, so the board looks like a birds-eye view of land - varoius patches of flowes, forests, mountains, etc. Each grouping of terrain is a different size and shape. Each quadrant also holds a couple of hexes with a unique landmark. Basic gameplay is simple - each turn, draw a terrain card and place three settlements on that type of terrain. The golden rule of the game: each settlement has to be adjacent to another one of your settlements if possible, so choose your starting point wisely! What adds strategy to the game is that settling next to a landmark earns you a special action for each turn for the rest of the game, such as moving a settlement two spaces, or building a fourth settlement on the end of a three-settlement line. Also keep in mind the Kingdom Builder cards as you plan your placements; depending on which three you have on the table you may earn points for the largest settlement, the most settlements in one line, or settlements surrounding a landmark hex. Maximize your special actions to complete settlements according to the Kingdom Builder cards to earn the most gold! 2-4 players, 45 minutes. - Steph

    Rainbow Price: $20.00
    Not quite a card game in the traditional sense, Rivals for Catan is more of a board game created and played with cards. Each player begins with a "principality" consisting of resource fields (ore, wool, hills, forest, gold, and grain), settlements (worth victory points and allow you to construct more buildings), and roads (which allow you to build additional settlements) which are organized in a grid-like fashion in front of him or her. Similar to the standard game, a die is rolled to determine which resources are produced at the beginning of each turn; however, an event die is also rolled, incurring brigand attacks, improved harvests, and more. Each player is also allowed an "action phase" to play building & action cards from their hand, which can give long-term and temporary bonuses; and build settlements, roads, and cities. Resources can also be traded to the bank, but not your opponent. The end goal is to have as many victory points as the given scenario calls for through settlements, cities, trade, and strength advantages. Three "themes" are included, each introducing new concepts and adding challenges to the game. Once players have mastered each theme, the scenario "The Duel of the Princes" can be played, incorporating all event cards and extending replayability even further! For 2 players. 45-60 minutes.
