Description

This game is a derivative of Shut the Box and is also called Help Thy Neighbor.

Each player is supplied with a number card with the numbers 2 through 12 printed on it. Players start by placing a chip in the kitty or ante or some other predetermined amount. As each player rolls the dice they cover the corresponding number on their board much like bingo. If a 7 is thrown, the player loses a turn unless it is their first throw. In which case all players put a chip in the kitty and the player keeps throwing dice and covering numbers on their board or their neighbor's boards if he/she cannot use them until another 7 is thrown. The player who covers all their numbers wins and wins the chips in the kitty.

Description

TAIJI is a strategy board game for 2 players Ages 6 and up.

TAIJI is a Chinese term that means ‘Great Duality’ and represents the fight of Good vs. Evil, Light vs. Darkness, YIN vs. YANG.

But YIN and YANG are indivisible! That’s why both players use the same indivisible “dual” pieces called TAIJITUS.

The object of the game is to get the highest score summing up the 2 largest shapes of connected squares of your colour (DARK or LIGHT) by placing TAIJITUS anywhere you want in the board, as long as there’s a free space to do so. Be careful! Every time you put a TAIJITU you’re playing both colours! So you might be helping your opponent!

Self-published free computer version is available for download (see files section).

NESTORGAMES version features a special 11x11 "Deluxe" board, so you can play on 7x7, 9x9 or 11x11. It includes a new victory condition (at the start of the game you can choose 1,2 or 3 groups as the victory condition).

Sail the Seven Seas. Plunder the treasure. Make your crew walk the plank.

Munchkin Booty brings the greatest gold-grabbers in history – pirates! – to the world of Munchkin. Use your Silver Long Johns to beat the Lobster Mobster, drink your Demon Rum to fight off the Viking Kittens, and defend yourself with the Cutlass (or Cutlad, for the gents) against the Prince of Whales. But watch out for Sharks!

Plunder the seven seas as a Pirate, Naval Officer, or Merchant. Taunt your foes with your horrible Accent: British, Spanish, Dutch, or French. Equip your Half-Galleon with a Crow's Nest and Figurehead. But above all...level up!

Munchkin Booty is a standalone card game that's compatible with the original Munchkin and other titles in the same universe of games.

Part of the Munchkin series.

Munchkin is a satirical card game based on the clichés and oddities of Dungeons and Dragons and other role-playing games. Each player starts at level 1 and the winner is the first player to reach level 10. Players can acquire familiar D&D style character classes during the game which determine to some extent the cards they can play.

There are two types of cards - treasure and encounters. Each turn the current players 'kicks down the door' - drawing an encounter card from the deck. Usually this will involve battling a monster. Monsters have their own levels and players must try and overcome it using the levels, weapons and powers they have acquired during the game or run away. Other players can chose to help the player or hinder by adding extra monsters to the encounter. Defeating a monster will usually result in drawing treasure cards and acquiring levels. Being defeated by a monster results in "bad stuff" which usually involves losing levels and treasure.

Note: The 2012 edition of Munchkin Booty from Pegasus Spiele includes the first expansion, Munchkin Booty 2: Jump the Shark.

Description

This roll-and-move game features a winding yellow track on top of a green (grassy) background. It's "a jolly game for 2, 3, or 4 players." From the Powerhouse Museum "The game is significant because it uses scenarios familiar to Australian country motorists during the first half of the twentieth century, when Australian roads were largely poor, gravel sections and steep hills made conditions treacherous, and cars were unreliable. The poor road conditions sometimes saw cars needing major repairs to axles and springs. Another very Australian obstacle on the road was a flock of sheep. The game reflects the poor state of the roads and the uncertainty of arriving at your destination without some mishap occurring. The aim of the game is to progress from the petrol station at the 'start' and travel to the gate marked 'home' via 100 squares numbered 1 to 100. Players move from the start to finish as quickly as possible by taking it in turns to throw the dice. Along the way various motoring obstacles, calamities, and misadventures including punctures, collisions, wrong turns, road blocks, flocks of sheep, bridges under repair, gravel on the road, broken springs, steep hills and axle trouble must be negotiated. These all require the player to miss throws or return to the start.

There is several versions of this game and several board sizes produced. The earliest version was registered in 1910 and most likely continued till the late 1930s or early 1940s. In the first version the designer cryptically placed the date of publishing in the number plate of the car closest to home.

Description

In Angel in the Attic, players take the part of the Willowby family, who must search the house to find the missing pieces of the nativity set on Christmas morning. The children in the family liked to play with the nativity set so the pieces are scattered throughout the house. Players must use logic to correctly discover which piece was the last to be found, which room it was found in, and who found it.

This is a Christian Family game, which uses a mechanic similar to that of Clue (the cards players try to identify are placed in an envelope under the board), but without the murder theme. There are variations provided in the rules to make it more or less challenging depending on the ages of the children involved.

The game features a miniature nativity set and distinctive art on the board, box, and player tokens. The game also came with an offer from the publishers to order new custom drawn player tokens of your family based on a photo you mailed in.

The initiates have waited for this day for centuries, and now that the grail appeared, they are well prepared. Following an ancient plan, the grail shall be brought to its designated place. But do the other initiates have the same goal as you? Whom can you trust?

Assassins, Templars, Rosicrucians and Illuminates start the hunt for the grail. The pawns on the gameboard belong to nobody, each player may move each of them. Throughout the game, however, each player may try to gain control over the pawns by secretly exerting influence on them. The winner of the game is not the one who brings home the grail, but the one who controls the bearer of the grail; in other words: The one who proves to have the highest influence...

Clockwise, the players move one of the pawns on the gameboard, or invest hidden influence points. Displeasing moves by other players may be rejected if you reveal to have a higher influence on that pawn than the player who made the move. Furthermore, displeasing pawns can be removed from the game by uncovering them. But in order to do so, you have to control the pawn which blows the other pawn's cover, and the amount of influence you can spend during the game is limited.

Players race to be the first to close out the most and most valuable number categories. Each turn, you roll six dice, but you can only use three of them for yourself--you have to let your opponent use the other three!

The only things needed to play are six ordinary dice, two pencils, and the provided score sheets.

Description

Up to eight people can play as individuals. Eighteen people can play as partners. Each person (or partnership) is randomly assigned an occupation: manufacturer, planter, jeweler, broker, inventor, doctor, lawyer or publisher. Each player begins the game with a wad of cash. Each player will move one’s own playing piece along the game board’s track. Players move along the gameboard according to a pair special dice, which, together, yield a random number from, zero to six. Along the way, each player must buy all six sections of an assigned possession as a victory condition.

The gameboard is divided into six sections. No player may advance to the next section until all the players have completed the previous section:
Paths of Fortune - Each player moves along a separate path using only one die. Players may pay and collect money from each other. Each player has a guide card, which says what to pay or collect and from whom as one advances along the path.
The Trading Area - Four trains, four planes, four ships and four buses are placed on random Purchase spaces in this area. Here players can buy transportation for use in the next section for price determined by a spinner or barter with other players.
Transportation Department - If a player owns the method of transportation on the space landed there is no penalty. If the player does not own the method of the transportation landed on that player must pay all the players who possess that vehicle. The penalty escalates with the number of vehicles of the designated type owned.
The Jamboree - Whenever two or more players land on the same space, all the players on that space spin the spinner and the player who gets the lowest number pays the penalty the space assigns.
‘Round and ‘Round Circle - If a player has yet to own all six parts on the assigned possession, the player must buy the remaining parts at double the price spun on the spinner. Advancing in this section means paying other players because of their occupation or because one lacks the transportation mode the space asks for. Players continue in this section until rolling doubles.
The Pay Off - Players sell their possessions back to the bank for whatever space on which they land.

When all the players have reached the end of The Pay Off section, each type of vehicle is sold back to the bank for values as determined by the spinner. Bank loans are paid back at 50% interest. The player with the most money wins.

Game components are an 8 inch metal globe with large numbered and colour-coded base with integrated two-dimensional spinner, 4 coloured magnetic jet planes, 16 flight plan and 32 chance and a large lot of fuel cards, play money and a transparent distance finder.

You have to round the globe first, starting in New York in eastern direction. On the way you have to land on 4 pre-dealt cities depicted on the flight plan cards. You encounter hazards and have to refuel your plane.

In order to move you whirl the whole globe (hence the name of the game), and the two-dimensional spinner at the globe base connected to the globe shows on the inside what chance cards and hazards are encountered and if and how much you can refuel. On the outside is shown how many hours (points)you can fly and how much fuel is consumed.

And there is also a colour code depicted on the globe base, which adapts to the various countries spread all over the "world".
You have to take all these informations into account to work out the best route with the help of the transparent distance finder depicting the travel distances point-to-point.

There are also some extra advantages to gain achieving some goals during your travels (such as crossing the equator).
