diamant strategy board gameDiamant Components Strategy Board Game

Diamant

£24.99

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.

Dizzle Strategy Board GameDizzle Strategy Board Game

Dizzle

£13.49

Take turns to pick up dice from the middle of the table and place them on your sheet. The next dice you take must match the others… watch out for the bombs!

With four levels of difficulty, you can keep rolling until you become a certified Dizzle superstar!

What’s in the box?

  • One pad with four different levels
  • Four pens
  • 13 dice

How to play:

On your turn, roll all the dice and sort the dice in ascending order. In a clockwise direction, everyone takes exactly one die and puts it on a field on their game sheet. The following rules apply:

  • The die must be put on an unused field.
  • The die must be put on the fields matching the number of pips.
  • Every player must put their first die chosen horizontally or vertically next to any field that has already been crossed out.

If there is no available field next to already placed dice you can “jump”. Jumping means that the player can put the next die on any available field next to an X on their game sheet. Only when a player is no longer able to place dice according to the rules are they allowed to choose to roll again or drop out. When all players but one have dropped out, the last active player has exactly one more opportunity to choose a die.

The game ends once all rounds have been played. Points are now awarded. Each player adds up the points they earned for special fields minus the points for bombs and brown piles.

Whoever earned the most points wins the game.

Bonus!

One of many Schmidt roll-and-writes!

Doppelt so Clever Strategy Board GameDoppelt so Clever Strategy Board Game

Doppelt so Clever

£13.49

Next in the series is Doppelt so Clever!

With five new dice-marking challenges and a new action beyond the re-roll and “use one more die” actions of the earlier game, you really have to be twice as clever to score big!

What’s in the box?

  • Six dice
  • Four pens
  • Score pad

How to play:

On your turn, roll all 6 dice at once, then choose a die and place it on your scorepad. Cross off that value and colour on you sheet. The white die is a wild colour and can be used in place of any other colour. But remember, the white and blue dice will always combine.

Put all dice that show a lower value than the currently selected die on the silver tray printed in the box. If you’ve picked the lowest value die, no dice are placed on the silver tray. Dice on the silver tray can no longer be used.

With the remaining dice, repeat this process twice till you have three dice on your game sheet. Place the three remaining dice on the silver tray. The other players can now choose one die to use to mark a space on their score sheet. A round ends after each player has been the active player once.

As you go through the game, you’ll unlock combos and additional moves. You can earn reroll abilities and extra dice. The fox bonus gives you extra points on your lowest scoring area, so make sure to score in every colour!

With new colours and new scoring methods, you’ll have to think twice as much!

Once everyone has taken their last turn, it’s time to count up the points! Highest score wins! If you score over 320 points, you’re twice as clever!

Bonus!

Solo mode available, so the gaming never stops.

Double Spot Strategy Board GameDouble Spot Strategy Board Game

Double Spot

£24.99

Get ready to out-pattern your opponent but watch out!

The double-sided disks mean each time you get closer to matching a pattern card, so do they! You’ll need a keen eye and the luck of the die to make a match and claim a card.

What’s in the box?

  • Game board
  • 40 double-sided disks
  • 40 pattern cards
  • Two card stands
  • Coloured die

How to play:

On your turn, roll the die and complete the action as follows:

  • If you roll a solid colour: drop a disk of the corresponding colour in any slot on the vertical board with the colour rolled facing you.
  • If you roll a blue/green split circle: drop a blue/green disk in any slot on the board with either colour (of your choosing) facing you.
  • If you roll a pink/yellow split circle: drop a pink/yellow disk in any slot on the board with either colour (of your choosing) facing you.

Play your disks strategically as you work to match the pattern on either of the pattern cards facing you. If your turn results in making the pattern on either (or both) of the pattern cards facing you, point out the match (or matches) to your opponent and take the card (or cards) to score. When a match is made, replace the card with a new card and continue playing. If the pattern on the new card already exists on the board, the first person to spot the match can claim the card.

The first player to earn five pattern cards is the winner! If you fill the board before that happens, the person with the most pattern cards at that time wins.

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!

Downforce: Wild Ride

£15.99

Clear the road! Here comes the new expansion for Downforce, introducing two new tracks: Aloha Sands and Savanna Stretch! Pass the other cars by speeding on the jumps, and avoid wild animals crossing the road. A copy of Downforce is required to play.

What’s in the box?

  • One double-sided game board
  • Eight ramps
  • Three animal tokens

How to play:

There are two new tracks to play – each adding new mechanics to the gameplay.

Aloha Sands features ramps. If you hit them just right, you can catch some air and zoom ahead of the pack.

  • A car may use a ramp only if the car’s movement on the played card is equal to or higher than the number on the ramp AND the car has at least 1 space of movement remaining AND the ramp’s landing space is empty.
  • If none of these conditions are met, the car may not use the ramp continuing to move in the next available empty space.
  • Cars may use multiple ramps in one turn.

Savannah Stretch features wild animals stampeding across the track. You must avoid the animals as they rumble through the course.

  • Each animal occupies a space outlined by their colour on the board. Animals block movement into the spaces, just like a car.
  • At the end of a turn in which at least one car has passed an animal’s line, that animal moves to its next open space on the board. If it is in its last space on the track, remove it from the board.
  • Once an animal leaves its space, cars may enter that space as if it were a regular space.

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!

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.

Dreams

£25.99

The Gods have illuminated the sky with constellations. But who is the mortal amongst the Gods? Can they remain hidden, or will the false images confuse those without divine inspiration? Keep your eyes open, as not all will be as it seems…

What’s in the box?

  • Two God tracks
  • 20 God markers
  • Four mortal markers
  • Six crescent moons
  • 18 stars
  • 72 dream cards
  • Four image numbers

How to play:

The game is played over several rounds. Each round consists of the following phases:

  • Lay out dreams: lay out 4 dream cards face up arranged as a square on the game board. Place one image number on a corner of each card.
  • Determine the vision & the mortal: each player is dealt a God/mortal marker. Now have a look at your own God marker. Don‘t let any other player know what you see on your marker.
  • Place stars: the player who dealt out the God markers begins. They place one star on the game board. After that, players continue until all players have placed their 3 stars.
  • Guess & resolve: now, all players secretly indicate their own guess on the uncovered prong of their own selection token. Each God guesses the player colour of the mortal. The mortal guesses the image number of the true vision. Everyone reveals their guesses!
  • Record points on the God track: you are rewarded with God points for correct guesses and smart laying-out of the stars. Each player records their points by advancing their own crescent moon piece on the God’s track. If nobody has reached 16 God points yet, play continues.

The game ends with the completion of the game round in which (at least) one player reaches 16 Gods points.

The player who is in the lead on the God track is the (almost) immortal winner of the game!
