12 Gangsters Blue Orange Board Game12 Gangsters Blue Orange Board Game

12 Gangsters

£13.99

Your 12 gangsters must participate in 12 heists in order to prove themselves to the Boss.

Your gangster cannot steal more money than the Boss! It is up to you to send out the right gangster at the right time. The more money your gangsters collect, the happier the Boss will be…

What’s in the box?

  • Boss token
  • 72 gangster cards

How to play:

All the players, including the Boss, choose a gangster to play from those in their hand. Players then reveal their chosen gangsters by placing their cards down on the table, face up, at the same time. All the gangsters are compared with the gangster chosen by the Boss. Three outcomes are possible:

  • Your gangster has chosen to steal less than the Boss’ and so the heist is successful. Place your gangster card face up in front of you.
  • Your gangster wants to steal more than the Boss’, they are stopped. Place your gangster card face down in front of you.
  • Your gangster wants to steal the same amount as the Boss’ gangster and is successful. Place your gangster card face up in front of you. Consequently, the Boss’ gangster doesn’t manage to steal any money. The Boss must place their gangster face down in front of them.

The gangsters chosen by the Boss always manage to steal money EXCEPT when another player’s gangster tries to steal the same amount. The Boss token is passed to the next player in a clockwise direction and the next round starts.

The game ends at the end of the 12th round (or 10th for 5 players) when all your gangsters have participated in a heist. Add together the total money won from your heists (all face up cards): the player with the most money wins!

Bonus!

12 Gangsters reinforces social play, problem solving and maths skills.

animix park blue orange card game

Animix Park

£13.99

Welcome to Animix Park! Try to score the most points by keeping the right mix of animals. Each type of animal scores points differently, so plan ahead to make sure the cards you keep and the cards you play are the perfect mix to win the game!

What’s in the box?

  • 80 animal cards
  • 30 mountain tokens

How to play:

Score the most points by playing the best mix of animals.

The last player to have petted an animal starts. Players take turns in a clockwise direction. On your turn, you complete one of two actions:

  • Choose an animal from the cards in your hand and place it face down in front of you. At any time, you can look at the cards that you have placed.
  • Take an animal card from the grid and place it face down in front of you. You must then choose an animal from the cards in your hand to place, face up, in the space left by the animal you just took. Place a mountain token from the pile on top of the animal that you moved to the grid. This token locks the animal in so it can no longer be taken.

The game ends when all players have no cards left in their hands. All the cards which are face down in front of a player are flipped face up. For every species, the player with the largest number of animals in that species wins the corresponding points.

Opposing sheep herds go head to fluffy head in a strategy game the whole family will love!

Plan your moves carefully to occupy the most pastures and fence out your foe. A different playing board is assembled before every game, making the game full of new challenges every time you play!

What’s in the box?

  • 16 pasture tiles

Play continues with each player moving by splitting any of their stacks and moving the new stack to a new pasture. A stack is blocked when it is surrounded by opponents’ pieces or the edge and can no longer be split and moved.

When all your sheep are blocked, you no longer continue playing. The game ends when no player can move. The player who succeeds in controlling the most pasture land (the most tiles) wins!

Bonus!

Being bad never felt so good. As an evil overlord, recruit a host of creatures to your kingdom – from simple goblins to terrifying dragons – and assign them roles. Some will gather resources and explore the surrounding area, while others will join your army to attack the human kingdom!

  1. Choose an active horde – the captain rolls the dice to decide which horde will work today.
  2. Gather resources – each evil lord takes food and glyphs collected by their castle’s active horde from the reserve.
  3. Call back scouts – each player counts the treasure cards brought back by their castle’s active horde. The player with the most treasure cards immediately wins a metal chest.
  4. Attack – each player can either attack the human kingdom OR attack another player’s castle to win potential spoils.
  5. Recruit creatures – each player can recruit creatures by spending their food and glyphs.

If a player has 10 or more chests after the attacking phase then the game is over. Add up the treasures and the richest player wins the game!

Blockness

£23.99

The Block Ness monsters are finally sticking their heads out of the water… but it looks like the lake isn’t big enough for everyone! Will you win the title of Monster of the Year and the privilege of being photographed by tourists?

What’s in the box?

  • One board
  • Four different coloured monsters made up of 12 segments each (one head, 10 body segments, one tail)

How to play:

The aim of the game is to place as many monster segments as possible on the loch board to make your monster the longest.

Monster segments can only be placed either horizontally or vertically – NOT diagonally.

Each player chooses a segment from their reserve and uses this to make their monster longer according to the following rules:

  • Each new segment should be placed on a space that is adjacent to the monster’s head or tail. The other side of the segment must sit on a free space
  • A player can place a segment that crosses over their own head or tail as long as they move their head or tail to the new segment during their turn
  • If they are able, a player can directly cross another segment of theirs
  • A player can cross over one or more of their opponents’ segments
  • A player cannot place their segment under another segment, including one of their own, even partially
  • Monsters cannot cross over an opponents’ head or tail
  • A player may not cross over a segment that is the same height as the one they are placing
  • When a player cannot place a segment on the loch, they are blocked and skip their turn

The game ends when all the players are blocked, or everyone has placed all their segments on the loch. The player with the least segments remaining wins the game!

Bonus!

Blockness has an extra game mode which allows players to play solo, using a companion game app.

cloud city blue orange strategy board game

£26.99

The city is kickstarting one of its most exciting projects with buildings so high that they rise above the clouds. As an architect, put together the most ambitious project than your rivals.

How to play:

The game is played in 8 rounds starting with the player who has the starting tile number 1. Gameplay continues clockwise. On your turn, carry out the following actions in order:

  • Expand the base of your city – choose a cloud tile from your hand and add it to your city face up in front of you.
  • Choose and place buildings – on all cloud tiles there are two building locations. Each location is represented by a space that is the colour of the building that should be placed on it. Take the two buildings you need from the box and place these on their corresponding locations.
  • Build walkways – walkways will allow you to connect your buildings and will win you council votes. If a connection between two buildings of the same height is possible once your buildings have been placed on your cloud tile, you can take the corresponding walkway and place it across
    the two buildings.
  • Draw a cloud tile – draw a new cloud tile so that you always have three in hand.

When all players have built their 3 x 3 city model, votes can be counted. Add together the council votes for each walkway built in your city, based on their length. The value of each walkway is marked on it. The player with the most council votes wins the game!

 

 

ColleXion Blue Orange Strategy Board GameColleXion Blue Orange Strategy Board Game

ColleXion

£17.99

Collect polygons to create sets which will win you points.

Seems easy? Well, watch out! All the pieces you collect that aren’t part of a set will lose you points at the end of the game! Don’t be too greedy and make sure to keep an eye on your opponents’ pieces!

What’s in the box?

  • 80 polygons
  • 12 score tokens
  • 12 power tokens

How to play:

Turns are divided into three stages:

  1. Pick one or more polygons from the game space: you must take a minimum of one accessible polygon from those in the game space.
  2. Add the chosen polygon(s) to your collection: add the polygons you picked on your turn to your collection. A collection corresponds to all your polygons that have not yet made up a set.
  3. Complete one or more sets: once you have added the polygon(s) to your collection, if you have one or more sets you must submit them all.

Each time a colour set is discarded, take one score token found at the top of the matching colour pile. Each time a shape set is discarded, take a score token from the smallest pile. If there are several piles of the smallest size, choose which one to pick from.

On your turn, you can use one and only one of your 3 power tokens to give yourself an
edge. Each power can only be used once. At the end of the game, turn over all your unused Power tokens. You will get a bonus point for each one.

The game can end in two ways:

  1. There are no more bonus tokens at the end of a player’s turn. Turns stop so that each player has played the same number of times. During this last turn, as an exceptional rule, it is not required to take the minimum one polygon. You can complete one or more sets or use a power token.
  2. There are no more polygons. The round must be completed so that each player has played the same number of times.

The player with the highest score wins!

Bonus!

ColleXion reinforces maths and problem solving skills.

cross clues blue orange party gamecross clues blue orange party game

Cross Clues

£12.99

Cooperate to connect and win!

Can you come up with a clue that is a cross between “Bear” and “Doctor”? Got one? Then say it out loud to the other players and hope they can figure out which two code words you crossed to make your clue!

Consider your clues carefully and think as a team to fill in as much of the grid as you can! With thousands of combinations of code words, this party game guarantees endless fun!

What’s in the box?

  • Ten axis tiles
  • 25 clue cards
  • 50 code word cards
  • One five-minute timer

How to play:

Each player draws one clue card from the pile, without revealing it to the other players.

Clue cards have coordinates on them that represent a unique crossing of two of the code words laid out during setup (row and column). You must try to come up with a single word that best combines both of the code words listed on your clue card.

There is no turn order. If a player is ready, then they may give their clue.

All other team members work together to intercept the clue. If they guess the coordinates correctly, that player places their card in its location in the grid facing up. If they guess incorrectly, the clue card is placed to the side of the table without revealing its coordinates.

Keep drawing cards until the pile is empty and players have no cards left (or the timer runs out!)

Players then count the number of clue cards correctly placed in the grid and use the scoring table to determine their final grade!

Will you get a perfect score and show you’re telepathically linked?

Kingdomino

£18.99

In the best-selling family classic, you are a king seeking new lands to expand your kingdom. Match tiles, claim crowns and expand your land to build the most impressive Kingdom!

But be careful, other kings will try and claim the same terrain!

What’s in the box?

  • Four starting tiles
  • Four 3D castles
  • 48 dominoes

How to play:

As a resourceful king, you are looking to expand your land. But be careful: other kings may want to claim the same terrain!

Each turn, connect a new domino to your existing kingdom, making sure at least one of its sides connects to a matching terrain type already in play. The order of who picks their domino first depends on which tile was previously chosen. The higher number tiles will have more crowns, but will mean you pick last in the next turn!

To score, you’ll need to make sure you have crowns in your terrains. Multiply the numbers of matching terrain squares by the number of crowns in that territory. Combine the scores for all yuor territories, the person with the highest total WINS! Be careful, if a territory has no crowns, it scores no points.

When you have completed your 5 x 5 grid, or you can’t place your final tile, the game ends. Highest score wins and rules the kingdom!

Kingdomino has 4 other ways to play; Middle Kingdom – if your castle is in the middle of your grid you score 10 extra points. Dynasty – play 3 rounds in a row, the most points wins. Harmony – score 5 extra points if you discard no tiles. Mighty Duel – in a 2 player game, use all the tiles to make a 7×7 grid.

With so many ways to play, Kingdomino is sure to be a family favourite!

Bonus!
Kingdomino reinforces focus and attention, maths and visual perception skills. There are additional rules for added challenges, including a 2 player variant.

Kingdomino Duel Family Board GameKingdomino Duel Family Board Game

Kingdomino Duel

£12.99

Roll the dice, create your domino and watch your kingdom grow!

Domino by domino fill in your map while entrusting the territories of your kingdom to loyal nobles. Use the power of the wizards to cast spells and strengthen your domain!

In this head to head battle, will you be crowned King?

What’s in the box?

  • Four domino dice
  • 1 double-side scorepad
  • 2 pencils

How to play:

Kingdomino Duel is a completely independent game which preserves the essence of the acclaimed original Kingdomino.

Kingdoms are made up of domains, which are groups of identical coats of arms, connected either horizontally or vertically. Domains score points at the end of the game equal to the number of nobles (crosses) in that domain multiplied by the number of its coats of arms.

Player A rolls all four dice and picks one. Player B gets to choose two, and then Player A takes the remaining die. Your two dice form your domino – now you need to draw it on your kingdom!

Each time a coat of arms without a cross is added to a kingdom, fill in a square in the spellbook corresponding to that symbol. If you’re the first person to fill in a coat of arms, you get to use that wizard power!

As in Kingdomino, you’ll need the nobles to score!

Once you have filled in your grid, or cannot add any more dominos, total up your points. Highest score wins!

Bonus!

Kingdomino Duel reinforces problem solving, visual perception and maths skills.
