Biblios Strategy Board GameBibilios Components Strategy Board Game

Biblios

£21.99

As the head of a medieval monastery, your goal is to assemble the greatest book collection and build the most famous library.

Use your limited gold wisely to acquire the necessary pigments for decorative lettering, hire the best copyists and reproduce the most precious works!

What’s in the box?

  • One category level board
  • Five special six-sided dice
  • 87 cards

How to play:

Your goal is to win the most victory points by having the highest total score in one of the five categories: pigments, holy books, monks, manuscripts and forbidden tomes.

The game is split into two phases.

Gift phase
Allocate the designated number of cards (according to player count) and then give the remaining players an opportunity to draw a card. When you allocate a card it is placed in one of three locations:

  1. In front of the active player (face-down)
  2. Into the public space (face-up)
  3. Into the auction pile (face-down)

Once all the cards have been picked from the public space, then your turn ends. The player to the left then becomes the active player. Players continue taking turns in the gift phase until the draw pile has been exhausted.

Auction phase
Reveal the topmost card of the draw pile and lay it face up at the centre of the table. Then all players bid for the card. The highest bidder pays the bid amount by discarding a certain number of cards from their hand.

Once all the cards in the draw pile have been purchased or discarded, it’s time to add up your points for each of the five categories. The player with the highest number of points in each category wins the victory points for that category and takes the corresponding die from the Scriptorium.

When the winner of each category has been determined, the players add the numbers on their dice. You win the game if you have the most victory points!

Oh my code! Your goal is to guess the numbers and colours of the cipher tiles. Ask the best questions and be the first player to decipher the code to win!

Will you break the code before your opponents?

What’s in the box?

  • 20 number tiles
  • 21 question cards
  • Four game screens
  • Memo pad

How to play:

In a two-player game, on your turn, you may perform one of the following two actions:

Ask a question: choose one of the six face up question cards to ask your opponent. Your opponent must answer truthfully. Once you have asked the question, remove it from the game.

Guess your opponent’s tiles: when you believe you know all of your opponent’s tiles, you may choose to guess your opponent’s tiles instead of asking a question. State the number and colour of your opponent’s tiles from left to right.

Your opponent answers either “correct” if you were right, or “wrong” if you were not. If your opponent guessed your tiles and only some were correct, do not tell them which were correct, as they can guess again on their next turn.

Should the first player correctly guess the other player’s number yiles, the second player has one chance to guess the first player’s number tiles. If the second player correctly guesses the first player’s number tiles, the game ends in a tie.

Bonus!

In a 3-4 player game, you are trying to guess hidden number tiles in the middle of the table!

Diamant

Venture down mine shafts by turning up cards from a deck to collect treasure.

Before the next card is turned up, you have the chance to leave the mine and stash your finds, including any gems you get on the way out! How far will you push your luck?

What’s in the box?

  • 35 expedition cards
  • 16 decision cards
  • 100 precious stones
  • Eight explorer figurines
  • Eight chests
  • Five barricade tiles
  • One game board

How to play:

When you advance into the cave you reveal the next expedition card. There are three types:

  • Treasure card: take as many precious stones from the reserve as there are rubies on the card.
  • Trap card: if the same trap is revealed a second time, all players in the cave immediately return to camp emptyhanded.
  • Relic card: go directly to the “Players’ Decision” Phase.

Player’s Decision: before a new expedition card is revealed, each player still in the cave must decide to continue the expedition and delve deeper into the cave, or to return to camp to put their precious stones safely in their chest.

If you return to camp, gather all rubies that were left on Treasure Cards. If multiple players are leaving at the same time, no one takes the relic cards. However, if only one player leaves, they take all relics in the cave.

The game ends when the last barricade tile is placed on the fifth cave entrance. Count your rubies – the player with the highest score is declared the winner.

Downforce Family Board Game

Downforce

£34.99

Tires screech. Gears shift. Drivers push their million-dollar cars to the limit.

Restored by Rob Daviau from the 1996 Spiel des Jahres recommended game “Top Race”, Downforce puts players behind the wheel of cars with a different Power each. The difference between victory and defeat could be a single card.

What’s in the box?

  • A double-sided game board
  • Six race car pawns
  • 54 cards
  • Six driver plaques

How to play:

A game of Downforce is played over three parts:

  1. The Auction: After everyone look at their hands of cards, the cars are auctioned off one at a time. To bid, pick a card from your hand and place it face down on the table. If you have the highest speed card of the car colour shown wins the bid and pays that much.
  2. The Race: During the race, you play a speed card from your hand and resolve it. Then the player to their left takes the next turn. Play continues until all the cars have finished the race or no more cards can be played.
  3. The Betting: There are three lines on each racetrack indicating when betting occurs. Once a car first crosses the first betting line and after all of the movement on the card has been resolved, you all secretly mark on your score sheet which of the six cars you think will finish the race in first place. At the end of the race, you’ll gain money for each of your bets as indicated on the score sheet if the cars they bet on finished first, second, or third.

As soon as a car crosses the finish line, it is placed in the appropriate winner’s space near the race track. After all cars have finished the race, work out how much money you earn from your cars based on how they finished and any winnings from betting.

If you make the most, you’re the winner!

“Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime” – Edward Whymper.

Only the best can join the expedition to climb the highest peak in the world!

In this fast-paced push your luck game, will you be satisfied to advance slowly but safely, or will you move fast but risk falling off the mountain?

What’s in the box?

  • 16 climber tokens
  • 6 dice

How to play:

A game is played over an unlimited of turns, until all of one player’s climber tokens reach the summit.

2. Set the ‘Ascension’ and ‘Weather’ symbols aside.

If you only rolled ‘Danger’ symbols on your dice, move your highest token down the mountain, stopping at the first open zone below your next climber token. If this climber token is your only token to have left the basecamp it falls back to the basecamp.

If you have set all 6 dice aside, keep them and immediately play another turn.

If you have chosen to end your turn voluntarily, advance one of your tokens toward the summit as many zones (occupied or not) as Ascension symbols you have set aside.

The first player to have all of their climber tokens in the summit is the winner!
