    Your mission, should you choose to accept it… band together with your teammates, don your Adventurer identity, and race around a sinking island, trying to capture the hidden treasures and escape before it all disappears under the churning sea! That, in a nutshell, is the concept behind this innovative cooperative game. The game consists of 24 beautifully illustrated, double-sided island tiles, four treasure figurines, Treasure cards, Flood cards, Adventurer cards, pawns, and a water meter. To begin, lay out the 24 tiles in a group, with the treasures close by. Six Flood cards are played, and their corresponding island tiles are flooded, and flipped to their blue-shaded "underwater" side. At this point, players are randomly dealt Adventurer cards, and take the matching pawns. Each Adventurer has a role (Engineer, Navigator, Pilot, etc.), and slightly different abilities than his/her teammates. As the game begins, players (although taking turns) act as a team to accomplish treasure-gathering, shoring up flooded tiles, and (hopefully!) keeping everyone on stable parts of the island. On each turn, players can take several actions including moving their pawn, shoring up flooded tiles, giving Treasure cards to another player, or capturing a treasure. After they have completed their actions, they draw Treasure cards and Flood cards. This is the most unpredictable part of the game, as you never know when you will trigger a rising water level which increases the number of Flood cards you have to draw on every turn! Flood cards dictate which tiles on the island are "flooded." If tiles aren't shored up and a Flood card matching that tile is drawn again, the tile is permanently removed from the island… and the island shrinks. Once you begin, it's a race against time to gather the treasures (and keep the tiles that hold treasures from sinking!), and leave the island as a group. If you fail to gather one or more treasures, or you lose a teammate the game is over and you lose. You'll find your whole team strategizing together and breathlessly watching each other draw the fateful Flood cards. Truly unique, this pulse-pounding game is a bit different every time you play and a great team strategy game too! Highly, highly recommended. For 2-4 players. – Jess

       Create a dozen custom bath bombs with this kit! Simply choose a mold; follow the crystal clear directions to get the right amount of ingredients; mix; pack the mold; and let dry. The bomb sets after 5 minutes so you can reuse the mold, but the bombs should be left to dry for about 4 days before using. Once you have the basic idea, you can be really creative. Mix colors to get unique shades, supplement scents with your own essential oils, pack the molds with multiple colors for fun effects and details, use your own cookie cutters for different shapes, or even hide little surprises inside the bombs to give as a gift! Everything you need is included: three 75g bags of colored baking soda (Pink-red, yellow, and blue), 4oz of citric acid, strawberry kiwi scented oil, 1.05 oz of glycerin, and five plastic molds (penguin, ice cream cone, dolphin, yay cloud, and sphere; sizes are between 1.5” and 3.5” long).

    There are twelve treasure pieces hidden within Monkey Beach Isle. Can a matey like ye use yer tactile powers to help the pirate monkeys find their booty? The game starts with all of the treasures dropped into the fabric island through the volcano opening. Each turn, a player flips over a green tile and a blue tile. The blue tile will be a piece of loot to find. The green tile will be a location to get it out of – or it might be a volcano tile if you're unlucky! Once four volcano tiles are found, the volcano erupts and it's game over. However, if the tile is not a volcano, it will reference one of three openings in the island: a beach opening, a waterfall opening, or a jungle opening. Once a player has determined the treasure and location to get it out of, they will feel for the treasure through the fabric. When they think they have found it, they will push it towards the correct opening. The player gets to keep the treasure if they were right. But if they were wrong, the isle re-claims the treasure. The game ends when all the treasure has been found or the volcano erupts. Whoever has the most treasure by game's end is the MVP – most valuable pirate!

One day Mr. Mallard decides to venture down the river, and he tells Mrs. Mallard to meet him at the park in exactly one week.

    This card game with a nautical theme combines elements of other familiar card games into a unique game with various levels of complexity. Even the cards are unique; the four suits are maps and shells (green) and waves and oars (blue). The A through 9 look familiar, but instead of 3 royalty we have the Dolphin, Mermaid, Seeker, and Whale. The object of the game is to take the most tricks by playing the strongest cards. In addition to value, attributes such as trump, color and specialty cards come into play. The number of cards dealt varies depending on the initial cards turned over. Once you master this, bidding determines how scoring is done. Play with 2 or 3 individual players, or 4 players in teams of 2. This game will take a little while to get used to, but won't become boring anytime soon.
