How to play:

A game of Evolution: Climate takes 5 to 7 rounds. Each round consists of the following 5 phases.

Deal Cards: deal each player 4 cards, plus 1 card for each species they have in front of them. When the draw deck runs out, this triggers the final round.

Select Food Cards: every player chooses a trait card from their hand and places it face-down on the watering hole section of the climate board.

Play Cards: play as many trait cards as you want.

Modify Environment: reveal the food cards on the watering hole and complete the following steps in order:

a. Adjust the Climate
b. Trigger Climate events
c. Climate population results
d. Adjust the plant food
e. Replace the climate event card

Feeding: each player must feed one of their hungry species. Feeding ends when all species have food equal to their population, or when all hungry species are no longer able to eat. It may take several times around the table for this to happen.

When the population of any species is reduced to 0, it goes extinct.

Highest score at the end of the game wins!

Evolution: The Beginning

£29.99

Evolution: The Beginning is a stand-alone game.

With hundreds of ways to evolve your species, every game unfolds in a beautifully unique way. Gather around the table and see who best adapts to the changing world around them!

What’s in the box?

  • Watering hole
  • 160 food tokens
  • 88 cards
  • Five food bags

How to play:

Each turn consists of four phases:

  1. Gather: place food on the watering hole and get your cards.
  2. Adapt: play your cards.
    There are three things you can do in the Adapt phase: create another species, add population to your species or add traits to your species.
  3. Eat: feed your species.
    There are two ways to get food, either from the watering hole or from another species (only if your species is a carnivore). Every species that doesn’t eat starves, a species goes extinct when it has no more Population cards.
  4. Score: score points for Food eaten.

When the deck runs out, shuffle the discard pile to create a new Deck. Then play until the player to the right of the starting player finishes their next turn. At this point, every player has had the same number of turns, and that’s the end of the game.

The player with the highest score is the winner!

Gembatan Strategy Board GameGembatan Strategy Board Game

Gembatan

£15.99

Armed with amulet tiles and dual-direction gems, your goal is to align colours to score points.

You may only lay a tile if you have a matching gem to place within it, so plan your moves wisely. Earn the most points and you will be richly rewarded as the victor!

What’s in the box?

  • 60 tiles
  • 60 gems
  • Game board

How to play:

On your turn, add one or more tiles to the board according to the rules of tile placement.

  1. For every tile you play, you must also play the connecting gem with the colours aligned as shown below.
  2. Gems may be placed in either a socket created when you add a new tile to the grid, or by filling in a socket left empty by another player.
  3. Each tile you play after the first of your turn must connect to a tile you already played that turn.
  4. Your tile cannot cut off a socket.
  5. If placing a tile creates more than 1 socket, you are only required to place a gem in 1 of those sockets.

Every gem you add to the grid counts for one point, this includes gems played to fill an existing open socket. If a gem that you add creates a diagonal chain of 3 or more gems that share a colour, score one point for each gem in the line. You cannot form horizontal or vertical chains. You score points for every gem in the chain, even if you are adding to a chain created by another player.

Play continues until there are no gems left in the tray, and either:

  • One player uses up all of their gems, or
  • A round passes with no player able to make any plays.

Each player then deducts one point for each gem they have left. The player with the most points wins!

HiLo

£13.49

HiLo can have you flying high, although you’d rather keep your cards low!

In the highly addictive, quick playing card game, each player tries to replace the high cards in their piles with lower ones.

What’s in the box?

  • 104 playing cards
  • Score pad

How to play:

Each turn is made up of one action. On your turn, you choose to either:

Take the top card from the (face up) discard pile, in which case you must trade it for one of the cards in your layout.

Take the top card from the (face down) draw pile and then make the following decision:

  • You can trade any face up or face down card in your layout with the card from the draw pile. Lay the traded card face up on the discard pile. Then the card drawn from the draw pile is placed face up in the player’s layout.
  • Or you can place the drawn card directly onto the discard pile, face up.

A player gets a HiLo each time they turn over or lay the third card of the same colour as the other two in a row – horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The player can then remove the entire row from their layout and discard the three cards of the same colour on the discard pile. The player then has three fewer cards in his or her layout.

After a player has turned over all of the cards in their layout then all of the other players have exactly one more turn. Should this create a HiLo, the cards are removed as described before. Every player adds together the value of all of the cards in their layout.

The game ends when at least one player has more than 99 total points (total from all rounds) at the end of a round. The player with the fewest total points wins. If two or more players have the same low total, it’s a tie.

Ishtar Strategy Board GameIshtar Strategy Board Game

Ishtar

£39.99

Play the role of a gardener aiming to transform the dry desert into the Lost Hanging Gardens of Babylon!

To accomplish your mission, you must plant flowers to gather precious gems, buy trees to earn you points or purchase upgrades. Choose carefully and plan ahead to become the best gardener!

What’s in the box?

  • Four player boards
  • Six hexagonal terrain boards
  • One carpet board

  • Eight blooming tiles
  • 26 tree cards
  • Six cup tiles
  • 20 trees
  • Six fountains
  • 114 gems
  • 16 assistants
  • Scoring pad

How to play:

Players play clockwise until the game end condition is met. On their turn, you perform the following actions in order:

Choose a Vegetation Tile: move the Watering Can clockwise to the next Vegetation. Take the top vegetation tile from the pile.

Place a Vegetation Tile: add the selected tile to any terrain board, making sure not to cover any fountains, sacred tablets, or other vegetation tiles. At least one space of that tile must be adjacent to a fountain or to any other vegetation tile placed previously.

Collect Gems: collect all gems from the corresponding spaces that you covered and place them in your supply in front of you.

Special Action: perform a special action if your tile has either a worker, skill or question mark icon on it. For a worker tile, place one of your gardeners on the tile, the skill icon means you can unlock a special skill on your player board and the question mark icon is a wildcard, meaning you can perform either action.

Plant a Tree: you may plant trees on each turn by buying them with your gems. Take the tree marker that was on the card and place it on any free grass space.

As soon as two piles of vegetation tiles are empty, the end of the game is triggered. Complete the current round so that each player plays the same number of total turns. Then, proceed to the scoring!

The player with the most victory points wins!

How to play:

The game is played in four phases:

  • Distribute tiles: at the beginning of each round (except the first) the starting player draws landscape tiles randomly from the bag and places one on each cloud. Each cloud may contain a maximum of three tiles.
  • Roll dice: the player sitting to the right of the starting player rolls both the bonus and direction dice. They may decide for each die whether they want to roll it again. The second result of any re-rolled die is binding. The results rolled on the dice apply to all players!
  • Actions: players carry out three actions – moving their balloon, collecting tiles and placing tiles.
  • A new starting player is determined, and the next round begins.

If a player connects all six coasts of their island to their balloon yard with landscape tiles of any kind, the current round will be completed, and one final round will be played before the game ends.

After all players have finished their final turn, a final scoring takes place by counting points from the number of landscape tiles. The player with the highest total of victory points wins the game!

Bonus!

Islands in the Mist has three modes, each providing an increasing level of challenge for experienced players!
