Pechvogel

£14.99

Murphy’s wife has flown away. The bank repossessed his nest and a magpie stole his last few coins. It never rains but it pours. And why should your luck be any different when you play Pechvogel?

What’s in the box?

  • One game board
  • 13 frustration counters
  • 15 score markers
  • Seven dice
  • One murphy counter

How to play:

At the start of your turn, throw the seven dice. After the first throw, put all dice of one rolled number onto the board. This number is your target, you must try to collect four of them this turn.

You can’t choose another target this turn.

After each roll you also have to put all ravens you throw onto the board. You need to avoid collecting three or more of these!

Continue throwing the remaining dice till there are four of your target or three ravens on the board.

As soon as there are at least four of your target or at least three ravens on the board, stop throwing – unless somebody uses a frustration. If you’ve collected four of your target, take a score marker showing that number.

You can either take it from the middle of the table or (if possible) steal it from an opponent. If you steal it, return a score marker of your choice from the middle of the table to the game box.

If you’ve collected three ravens, take all frustrations from the board, or if there are none there, take one from the supply instead.

If there are both four of your target and three ravens on the board, do both: take a corresponding score marker, along with all frustrations from the board or a frustration from the supply.

The game ends when there are no more score markers in the middle of the table. Most points wins!

  • If you don’t find a match, put the penguins back on their eggs, and it’s the next player’s turn.
  • If you find one matching egg, place the corresponding penguin with its egg inside in front of your iceberg, and it’s the next player’s turn.

Qwantum Strategy Board Gameqwantum strategy board game

Qwantum

£9.99

After Qwixx and Qwinto, here comes the third strike!

Enter numbers in your grid that are always higher than the previous turn – until those totals need to go lower once again…

What’s in the box?

  • 7 dice
  • Score pads
  • Four pencils

How to play:

Take all seven dice and take your first turn. If you are not happy with the score, you can reroll.

Select one colour and enter the total for the dice in this colour on the corresponding coloured row on your scoresheet.

Now remaining players can enter any one of the remaining three colours on their scoresheet. The white dice is also added to every colour’s total here too.

Numbers always have to be entered from left to right in each coloured row – gaps are not allowed. The numbers within each coloured row always have to be higher from left to right but only up to the thick line and then from there on they have to get lower.

qwinto strategy board gameqwinto strategy board game

Qwinto

£9.99

A follow on from the award-winning bestseller Qwixx.

It’s a race to fill your scoresheets with numbers as quickly – and as highly – as possible in order to score the most points!

What’s in the box?

  • Three dice
  • A scorepad
  • Four pencils

How to play:

Decide how many dice you want to roll, whether 1, 2 or 3. Roll your die or dice and call out the sum.

Now all players can (but do not have to) write down the sum that was called out into exactly one field on their score sheets. The sum can only be entered into a row that matches in colour with the dice that were rolled. Within a coloured row, the numbers must be in ascending order from left to right and no number may appear more than once in the same row. Within a column no number may appear more than once. The order of the numbers in a column doesn’t matter.

It is a failed attempt if the player cannot or doesn’t want to enter a number.

The game is over when a player has two coloured rows completely filled out or when someone has recorded their fourth failed attempt. Points are recorded as follows:

  • If a coloured row contains empty fields, each entered number in this row is scored as a single point.
  • If a coloured row contains no empty fields, the number showing on the far right is scored as points.
  • If there are empty fields in a column, no bonus points are rewarded for this column.
  • If all three fields in the column are filled with numbers, the number in the bonus field is scored as bonus points.

The points from the three coloured rows and the bonus points are then added up. From this sum, subtract points for each failed attempt (-5 each). The player with the most points wins.

Bonus!

Perfect for on the go gaming!
