Description

Not to be confused with the 1988 Ravensburger game of the same title by Edith Grein-Böttcher (German: Goldgräber, English: Eureka).

This older game is kind of a monopoly variant, but with less (if not to say: no) interaction between the players.

Original text from the box:
A dice-game for 2-8 players of 8 years or more.
Ravensburg Games No. 11.418
Contents: 1 board, 1 die, 8 men, 48 claims, 48 claim cards (8clours with 6 cards per color), 24 saloon cards, 24 store cards, 24 surprise cards, money.
Somewhere in the "far west" all players dig for gold. Each gold-digger tries to get possession of the sector with 6 claims which in colour correspond to his man. The way there takes him through saloons, stores, banks, and also to the doctor and the sheriff, where pleasant and unpleasant surprises await him. The winner is the player who has amassed the largest fortune. The claims and cash are added.

Description

In Kultapeli ("The Gold Game"), 2-6 players represent prospectors in the Finnish Lapland in 1949. The idea of the game is to first make one to three claims, register them at the Bank/Registry Office, then pan for some nuggets of gold and sell them - and any claims that have not run dry yet - to the bank, to reach a sum agreed before the start of the game (eg. 20,000 marks). Each time a player visits the Registry they must also visit the saloon and play a Blackjack-like dice game for at least half of their money. The first player to reach the agreed sum wins. When moving on the map, the players may encounter some events which are usually negative.

The gold nuggets are called according to the old gold prospectors slang: Lifeless, Nit, Louse, Bedbug, Nugget, from smallest to biggest.

Description

Wayfinder is about four Polynesian tribes who, while voyaging, got mixed up among a group of islands. Each player plays a Wayfinder (navigator-priest). The goal for the Wayfinder is to go on a series of voyages to unite the people of the tribes and form villages.

On the player's turn, the player must execute a voyage where the wayfinder is located - picking up all the residents of that space and voyaging (mancala like) placing one tribesman on each spot along the way.

You get points for creating villages (exactly 5 men of one color in a space) - but more points for villages of your own color. Huts mark created villages - which is used in end game scoring.

There is a real time part of the game play. That is, when it's not your turn, you must race to place your Wayfinder to mark the beginning of your next voyage before the beginning of your next turn.

The game ends when there are no more moves possible. The player with the highest score wins.

Description

Sport of Kings (SOK) covers the campaigns of the War of the Austrian Succession in the German theaters of Silesia, Moravia, Bohemia, Bavaria, and the Rhineland, beginning with the outbreak of war in 1740 and running until 1745, when Prussia withdrew from the conflict and the emphasis shifted to other theaters. From December 1740 to 1748, the War of the Austrian Succession raged on the continent of Europe.

SOK is a two or three-player operational study. One player is the French, one is the Allies, and a third may play the Prussians (under French control in a two-player game). The Allied army includes contingents from Britain, Hanover, Holland, Austria, Hesse, and Denmark. Saxony is a potential ally, but could join the Franco-Prussians instead. Under French command are Bavarian and Pfalz troops. The forces of the Empire are available to the side that can demonstrate the greater strength.

The game system is essentially the same as CoE. A number of important changes have been made to deal with the fact that there are three sides. Map scale is still 8.5 miles per hex. The counters are brigades. Units are rated for Strength (in battalions), Effectiveness (a combination of morale and training), and Movement. Turns are equivalent to months. Each turn is broken down into several phases - supply, operations, admin, etc. There are scenarios for the 1st and 2nd Silesian Wars, the Austro-Bavarian War, and the Dettingen campaign, plus a huge Campaign Game covering the entire period.

The players work together to catch all the fish before the wind reaches strength 12. Players roll the special die and move their boats accordingly. Fish are caught by moving the required number of boats to adjacent spaces - bigger fish (2-4 points) require the corresponding number of boats; only small fish (value 1) can be caught by one boat alone. Rolling the wind symbol increases the strength of the wind by 1; bringing an even number of fish into the harbor reduces the strength of the wind by 1. Players win if all the fish are caught before the wind reaches strength 12.

Description

Eclipse is a little "push your luck" game with dice. The goal is to be the first player to "Eclipse" his scoring grid by covering it with black tiles.

The active player throws the 5 dice and must set aside all dice coming up showing the black side. A decision is then made to "quit" or "go on".

If the player quits, he takes the same number of tiles as black sides he has thrown and places them onto his grid. His turn ends. If he goes on, he throws the remaining (white face) dice again. If more black sides come up, he sets them aside and decides again to quit or go on. Any time a player throws the dice and no new black sides come up, his turn ends and he places nothing on his grid.

If he eventually gets all black sides up, he gets to place 5 black tiles onto his grid and start a new turn.

The tiles placement must obey to certain restrictive rules.

It is also possible to do an attack roll of the dice. The attacking player roll one time the 5 dice and have to place all for all the black sides coming up. He places on the grid of the player of his choice and follow the same placement rules. But, of course, he will do so in a manner to mess up the grid and make it harder for him to win.

Description

The Game:

The Hunt takes place in a future world where people entertain themselves watching a game called THE HUNT. An arena/maze is prepared where a violent criminal is put into along with less harmful people and the main actors of the game the hunters.

The latters are taken over by the players and their object is to hunt down the so called fox, while collecting points for various actions, like "killing the fox", "dying a noble death" or "witty statement". Maybe you know the film "Running Man"? That's it. Not 100% but very close.

The whole spectacle is run by a referee, who plays the fox, awards points and comments on the players actions. He is the one who keeps the game running.

So its a "classic" death match game, where action and fast gaming are the most important ideas.

Every player has to create a character, buy equipment to go hunting (weapons and armor) and maybe tell a short story about the person the represent. Even at this point you can score points for a great introduction of your character.

The game is played in turns, in which a player could take two of these actions: Movement, Use Skill, Aiming, Reloading a Bow, Attack. Actions are taken by initiative and Combat is run by an extra combat sequence.

The material:

THE HUNT comes as a simple booklet with the rules and counters to be copied and cut out. All very simple and black/white. No fancy artwork or mounted boards, just plain paper. The maze is as simple as the rest, simple squares printed on plain paper.

Description

Ranged Fun is a simple game of vehicular urban shootyness.

The core of the game is based around the four statistics which each unit has. These are reduced as the unit is damaged, so they gradually loose effectiveness before being destroyed. This means there is some bookkeeping involved, but it means the rules a great for quick skirmish games.

The statistics themselves are generalized: each is the combination of many factors the unit may have. For example, all the guns, ammo, rate of fire, targeting efficiency and range are represented by a single number. As the number is reduced through damage, it can represent individual guns being disabled, hampered aiming, ammo destroyed etc.

This may not be that realistic but it speeds gameplay and reduces bookkeeping. This is after all a game of fun - at different ranges

Description

The players each take different a role - prince, princess, juggler (x2) - and work together to retrieve treasures from the dragon's lair.

The game board shows the path to the dragon's lair, which is located on an island the players can only reach by a raft. Players roll and move their pieces, but there is a lucky and an unlucky side to the dice. If they roll the unlucky side, the dragon is moved and might capture them; if they roll the lucky side, they can move their own piece.

If a piece reaches one of various unlucky fields, it is stuck there and can only be freed by another player who announces a "lucky roll" - if successful (the die lands on one of the lucky sides), the stuck player can move out of his/her field. If unlucky, the dragon moves as usual.
The players must reach the dragon's island, retrieve the treasure and return to their home base to win.

Contents: 1 board, 4 pawns, 4 special dice, 1 dragon

Description

Cooperative children's game around traffic education.

The children have decided that walking is better than going by car, as it's faster and more environmentally friendly. So, they challenge the grown-ups to a race to the pool; the children walk, and the grown-ups drive. Both parties have to follow the traffic rules. The children win if they make it to the pool before the cars arrive.

Description

A jungle-themed cooperative children's game.

Theme
Baba Banana and his four monkey friends have decided to throw a party. They've got the decorations and the food, but they don't have any guests yet. So they are running, climbing and jumping through the jungle to invite the other animals. Will they be able to invite enough friends for the biggest and greatest party the jungle has ever seen?

Aim of the game
The players work together, trying to get seven or more animal tiles and three monkeys to the clearing before the game ends.

Game play
The board shows a track consisting of 18 spaces. Each of the spaces shows a different animal; the same animals are also printed on the tiles. At the center of the board there is a clearing.
The 5 monkeys are placed on random spaces. The animal tiles are shuffled and placed next to the board in a face-down stack. Players take turns drawing a tile and then look for the corresponding space on the board. Then they try to reach that space with one of the 5 monkeys. Each of the monkeys carries 1-3 fruits, and this number shows exactly how many spaces that monkey can move. If none of the monkeys can reach that space, the tile is removed from the game. If a monkey succeeds, the tile is placed on the clearing space that shows the fruit which the successful monkey is carrying. Then the player may also place the monkey on the clearing. Monkeys that have been placed on the clearing stay there for the rest of the game.

The game ends when all animal tiles have been used or all monkeys are on the clearing. If there are 7 or more animal tiles and 3 monkeys on the clearing, the players win the game. Only animal tiles accompanied by a monkey count.
