Bandido

£9.99

The game where cooperation and intuition catch the bad guy.

A prisoner is trying to escape through tunnels starting underneath his cell. Will you be able to join forces and cards to stop him?

What’s in the box?

  • 69 cards
  • One super card

How to play:

On your turn, place one of your cards to connect it to one or more cards already on the table. The card you play must fit perfectly; every tunnel has to line up with another tunnel.

After you have placed your card, take a new card from the draw pile. If you can’t play, you can place your cards under the draw pile and take three new cards.

If you manage to block off all tunnels, you have won the game together! If one tunnel remains open after all cards have been placed, Bandido escapes and you all lose.

Kawaii Card gameHelvetiq Kawaii Card Game

Kawaii

£9.99

Be the fastest to collect as many ice creams of your favourite flavour as you can, or you might see your score melt like ice in the sun!

To succeed you need to constantly observe other players’ actions, use your memory and act fast, with no hesitation.

What’s in the box?

  • 55 ice cream cards
  • Five “favourite flavour” cards
  • Five “favourite shape” cards
  • 10 heart-shape capture tokens

How to play:

Each player quickly turns a card over from their reserve and places it in front of them. The cards must be placed in front of each player in a pile, slightly offset from one another, so that the flavour and shape of the ice creams on each card remain visible.

When a player spots one or several piles they find interesting, they can capture it. They
should quickly put their token on the corresponding pile and say “Kawaii”. The player takes all the cards from that pile and puts them aside in a score pile. The player then gives their capture token to the player whose pile they just captured. The given token can be now used by another player (immediately or later in the game).

Once all the cards have been played and captured, each player counts their score with the cards they captured. The player with the least points starts the next round.

After three rounds, the player with the highest score wins the game!

Misty Card GameHelvetiq Misty Card Game

Misty

£9.99

It’s raining outside and you’re doodling on the windowpane, when suddenly your drawings come to life: trucks are moving, rockets are soaring, leaves are falling.

But watch out, a flower eating monster is lurking nearby… welcome to Misty!

What’s in the box?

  • 54 cards

How to play:

On your turn, choose one card from your hand and put it in front of you, face down. When every player is done, they simultaneously reveal their cards and place them in front of them.

The five remaining cards go to the next player to your left, face down. Take the cards you got from your neighbour: this is your new hand. Repeat the choosing card and passing the hand phase until you have six cards in front of you. Then repeat with six more cards until you have a full window of twelve cards in front of you.

Once the construction phase is finished, each player activates their window, in turn. To activate your window, you can start with any card you want and then activate the other cards in the order you choose. To activate a card, complete the action it states on the card.

When every player is done activating their window, the players count up their scores.

The first player to win two rounds is the winner!

Omerta Card Game

Omerta

£14.99

Chicago, 1932. You are a prohibition gangster. The untouchables are about to raid your smuggling warehouse.

Don’t get caught handling illegal alcohol and try to get rid of as many banned bottles as possible before your opponent’s get rid of theirs!

What’s in the box?

  • 40 bottle cards
  • 20 character cards
  • Four Famous Gangster cards

How to play:

On your turn, you draw a card, then you choose to either:

  • Replace one of your cards with the card you just picked, but without looking at the card from your hand.
  • Or put the card you just drew directly on the discard pile, face up (this is only when you draw from the draw pile, not the discard pile).

When a player discards a bottle card, all the players can get rid of an identical card by revealing it and discarding it. When the active player discards a character card, the power of the card is activated. The powers are described on the cards.

When you think your stock is 7 or lower, including points from character cards, you can call Omerta. The game ends immediately. Everyone reveals their hands and counts their scores.

If no one calls Omerta, the game ends after a certain number of rounds: you play as many rounds as players around the table. Lowest score wins!

Bonus!

Omerta is a classic card game revisited in the best way possible with an original theme.
