The Village Square: September 30, 2019


More Madness
Capstone Games will release Feuerland Spiele’s Crystal Palace after Essen. The unique dice placement Euro design (because players choose the value of their dice when placing) is slightly historical and slightly quirky as you represent a country at the 1851 World’s Fair to attract the best minds and material to create the grandest spectacles!

Domino Theory
Holy Grail Games’ Dominations will release in November. The triangular tile laying civilization design tasks player with expanding and developing their fledgling empires over 3,000 years.

More Madness
Iello announced the release of the first expansion to Big Book of Madness, The Vth Element, to be released in February. The add-on includes two new modules and new characters to the cooperative game of magicians confronting the big book’s monsters.

Other Worldly…
In December, Wizkids will release a fantastical and unique coop game, Coraline: Beware the Other Mother. You and your team are the Ghost Children, previous captures of Beldam (that Other Mother), trying to help Coraline escape her clutches. Confront mouse circuses and mantis tractors to get skeleton keys and snow globes so that Coraline isn’t trapped in the Other World forever!

How do you say that?
In other Wizkids news, they are remastering Sidereal Confluence, the highly unique, asymmetrical trading and negotiation game that can support up to 9 players, with new art and layout.

Avast ye groundhog!
In a Groundogs Day meets Pirates of the Caribbean, Tasty Minstrel Games will release Chrono Corsairs in October. Each day you wake up stranded on the same island with your memory of each day intact. Improve your efficiency every 24 hours to escape the island and grab as much treasure as you can, of course!

Cats gonna cat
Furry Foodies is now available from The OP. The family friendly set collection game is all about curious kitties pouncing on unattended plates of food to snatch as many morsels as they can – before their owners catch them…as if cats cared about being caught!

I have lots of kids. Board games help me connect with them, while still retaining my sanity...relatively speaking.
