Abandon All Artichokes

£13.49

A heartless card game!

This isn’t your garden-variety card game! A bumper-crop of prickly produce has overtaken your patch, and there’s only one choice: abandon all artichokes!

Prune your deck by harvesting fresh vegetables, each with a special power that lets you swap, discard, or compost cards. You’ll need luck, strategy, and a green thumb to grow a winning hand!

What’s in the box?

  • 100 cards

How to play:

Abandon All Artichokes is a fast-paced “deck-wrecking” card game. On your turn, carry out the following actions:

  1. Replenish the garden row by revealing cards from the top of the garden stack until there are 5 cards.
  2. Harvest 1 of the face-up cards from the garden row into your hand. This card may be played at any point during your turn.
  3. Play any number of cards from your hand. To play a card, place it in front of you and resolve its actions. Once the card has been resolved, place it face-up on top of your personal discard pile.
  4. Discard all unplayed (or unplayable) cards in your hand face-up to the top of your discard pile.
  5. Draw 5 cards from the top of your deck to refill your hand.

When you refill your hand at the end of your turn, if none of the cards are Artichokes, you immediately win the game!

Bonus!

Abandon All Artichokes reinforces visual discrimination and strategic thinking.

Bloom Strategy Board GameBloom Strategy Board Game

Bloom

£11.99

Flowers are power in this freshly picked dice game!

Roll the dice, choose a colour, and then circle the number of matching flowers. Choose wisely – the dice you pass might score for your opponents!

What’s in the box?

  • 150 score sheets
  • Six dice

How to play:

A round proceeds in the following order:

  • Roll the 6 dice
  • Choose customers & make bouquets

Starting with the start player, take turns choosing 1 die from the common pool of dice. Then each player circles the exact number of flowers equal to the value of their chosen die. You may circle a smaller number of flowers, but this will result in unhappy customers.

A customer is unhappy if you circle either: flowers in a different colour than your chosen die or a smaller number of flowers than your die value. Add a tick mark in the unhappy customer section on your sheet for each unwanted or missing flower. Each tick mark is worth -1 point.

If you circle all flowers of a colour, shout “Bouquet!” and circle the highest available number of the matching colour in the scoring section.

The flowers are divided into six garden beds on every sheet. Once you circle all 12 flowers in a garden bed, you may circle the first available number in the “garden beds” scoring section.

A round ends when all players have taken a die and circled flowers. Collect all 6 dice and give them to the next player. Continue playing rounds until either one player has circled three numbers in the colour section or one player has circled the fourth number in the garden bed section.

Most points win!

Bonus!

Bloom reinforces visual discrimination.

Dragonrealm Family Board GameDragonrealm Family Game

Dragonrealm

£24.99

Dare to venture beyond Dragonwood!

Collect sets of adventurer cards in order to roll dice, which you will use to explore the mystical lands of Dragonrealm. Claim the land’s treasure, but beware of meddling goblins, who pop up to snatch the spoils. Gather the most gold and become ruler of the realm!

What’s in the box?

  • 68 adventurer cards
  • 50 treasure coins
  • 32 adventurer meeples
  • 21 location cards
  • 16 enhancement cards
  • Six goblin meeples
  • Six dice

How to play:

On your turn, you may either rest or explore.

Rest
Announce that you are taking a rest and draw 2 adventurer cards, one at a time, either from the face-up cards or the face-down deck (or 1 from each). If you draw a goblin card, place a goblin on the corresponding location card.

Explore
You may explore one of the face-up locations with one of the following three actions: sneak, search, or storm. To explore, play up to six cards from your hand face-up and announce which location you’re exploring and the type of action you’re using.

  • To sneak: play cards that are numerically in order regardless of colour.
  • To search: play cards that are all the same number.
  • To storm: play cards that are all the same colour.

Take one die for each card you played and roll them. If the total is equal to or greater than the amount listed for the action you chose, the explore succeeds! If the total is less, the explore fails.

  • If the explore succeeds, place one of your adventurer meeples on one of the locations open spaces, if the explore type has a gold circle around it, place 2 meeples.
  • If the explore fails, take the cards played back into your hand and place your adventurer in the academy where they can be used in the future to add one to a dice roll.

Once a location is full of adventurers, the location is complete and the player who has the greatest amount of adventurers on that location card claims it and the points are dealt out. In the event that the goblins have the majority, in the case, the treasure is lost and the goblins take the card.

The game ends immediately once the Dragon location is complete. The player with the most coins wins!

Bonus!

Dragonrealm reinforces probability and visual discrimination.

Dragonwood Family Board GameDragonwood Components Family Board Game

Dragonwood

£15.99

Deep in the heart of this mythical forest lurk angry ogres, giggling goblins, and even the famed and fearsome fire-breathers themselves!

Collect sets of adventurer cards to earn dice, which you will use to roll against your foes. Stomp on some fire ants, shriek at a grumpy troll, or strike the menacing orange dragon with a magical silver sword. Only the bravest will overcome the odds to emerge victorious!

What’s in the box?

  • 108 cards
  • 6 dice

How to play:

On your turn, you may either reload or capture.

Reload
If you choose to draw an adventurer card, add it to your hand and signal that your turn is over by saying out loud, “reload!”

Capture
Announce which creature or enhancement you are trying to capture and show the cards you are using (including any enhancements) by placing them face up in front of you. There are three ways to capture a card from the landscape:

  • To strike: play cards that are numerically in order regardless of colour.
  • To stomp: play cards that are all the same number.
  • To scream: play cards that are all the same colour.

If you defeat a creature, take the card from the landscape and place it face down in a “victory” pile next to you. If you capture an enhancement, take the card and place it face up in front of you. This card can then be used throughout the rest of the game. If your capture is unsuccessful, you must discard one card from your hand.

The game ends when either:

  1. Both dragons have been defeated,
  2. Two adventure decks have been played through.

If you have the most victory point, you win!

Bonus!

Go Nuts For Donuts Card GameGo Nuts For Donuts Components Card Game

Go Nuts for Donuts

£15.99

Time to take the donuts!

Will you go for a stellar cruller or grab a glorious glazed? A double chocolate is sure to score, but in the long run Boston Cream may be worth more! Choose carefully – if two or more players go for the same donut, nobody gets it!

What’s in the box?

  • 70 donuts cards
  • 42 player cards
  • 7 donut row markers

How to play:

A game takes place over several rounds. To start a round, each player secretly picks which card they want from the donut row by taking a selection card from their hand and placing it face down in front of them. The numbers on your selection cards represent the position of the card in the row.

Once each player has a selection card face down in front of them, everyone simultaneously reveals it. Then, starting with the lowest selection number and counting up, players look to see if they get to take the card:

  • If two or more players picked the same card, no one gets it! Immediately discard that card to the discard pile.
  • If you are the only player to pick a card, take it from the donut row and place it face up in front of you.

If a card has a star at the corners of its description border, that means it has a special power that must be activated immediately when it is taken from the donut row.

When all of the selected cards have been taken (and all powers have been resolved), refill the empty spaces in numerical order with cards from the donut deck. All players should take back their selection cards into their hands and begin a new round, which plays out just like the previous one.

The game ends when there are not enough donuts in the donut deck to fully replenish the donut row. At that point, each player counts up their points and the player with the highest total is the winner!

Bonus!

Go Nuts for Donuts reinforces visual discrimination or strategic thinking.

  2. Play: play cards from your hand, as many or few as you like.
  3. Discard: you cannot end your turn with more than eight cards in your hand. If you have more, discard until you have eight.

Hi Lo Flip Family Board GameHi Lo Flip Family Board Game

Hi Lo Flip

£15.99

Fortunes will flip in this wild game of strategy and chance! Play number cards to a centre pile, following the direction on the Hi-Lo chip.

If you get stuck, flip the chip for a chance to reverse the order and save your turn. But if you wind up without a move, the points go to your opponent. Be the first player out of cards and Lo! You end the game on a Hi!

What’s in the box?

  • 100 cards
  • 1 Hi Lo chip

How to play:

On your turn, look at the Hi-Lo chip. If “Hi” is face-up, you must play a card to the discard pile that’s higher than the current top card of the pile. If “Lo” is face-up, then you must play a lower card.

You must play a card if possible, but if not then flip the Hi-Lo chip. If the chip lands on the opposite side, play a card from your hand and end your turn. If it lands on the same side as before, draw the top card of the draw pile and play it if possible. If you’re still unable to play a card, you’ll instead make a “reset” play. To make a reset play, first, the player who most recently played a card collects all the cards in the discard pile.

Special Card Abilities:

  • Cards ending in “1”: Playing one of these cards causes the next player to draw 1 card and immediately skip their turn.
  • Cards ending in “2”: When you play a card ending in 2, you must immediately play a second card, unless it was your final card.
  • Cards ending in “0”: These cards are each worth 10 points when scoring

Ending the round: The round ends when one player has discarded all the cards in their hand. That player wins all of the cards in the current discard pile and receives a bonus of 10 points for going out. All players count the cards they collected and score 10 points for each card ending in “0”, and 1 point each for all other cards. Each player announces their total for the scorekeeper to tally.

The game ends once any player has accumulated at least 75 points at the end of a round. Whoever has the highest score is the winner.

Bonus!

Hi Lo Flip reinforces probability and strategic thinking skills.

Hit List

£9.99

1 clue, 6 answers, 30 seconds.

Put this hit party game at the top of your list! How quickly can your team name ice cream brands? Vampires? Cartoon cats? Answers can be obvious or obscure, but they score only if they’re on the Hit List!

What’s in the box?

  • 200 cards
  • 10 Scoring chips
  • Sand timer

How to play:

One teammate takes on the role of “reader,” draws a card from the box, and looks at it without showing others. Then a player from the other team flips the sand timer. Simultaneously, the reader announces the category at the top of the card and – without taking turns – the reader’s teammates start shouting examples that fit the category.

Whenever the reader hears an item that matches one on the card, they shout “Hit!” and reveal one of the remaining available scoring tokens. If a teammate shouts out the “pink” item, reveal two tokens. Keep shouting examples until either:

  • time runs out
  • all items have been guessed

If time runs out and the team did not guess all of the items on the list, the other team gets one chance to guess a remaining item. If they can give a correct example, they collect one of the remaining tokens.

Take turns alternating between teams (selecting a different reader each time) until each player has been the reader twice. Then total the scores. The team with the higher score wins.

Bonus!

Hit List reinforces language & vocabulary skills. Part of the Gamewright port-a-party range!
