Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Gold Up!

Moussaillons, from 2 to 10 players for 15 minutes, find the treasures!

In Gold Up, you are a pirate whose objective is to collect as many gold coins as possible.

These treasures are locked in chests that you will need to open with the right keys.

The color of each chest indicates the color of the key that opens it.

Be the smartest by using your keys at the right time to recover the biggest chests or steal the loot of other pirates using the special cards!

But be careful, robbing a pirate is a dangerous game and his revenge could be terrible...

Collect one of the 7 sets of chests using the correct keys.

Use the Joker key to open any chest.

Steal your opponents' keys using the Key Thief card.


Steal your opponents' chests using the Chest Thief card.

Arrange the chests in 3,2,1,2,3 on the table then distribute 5 key cards to each player.

Collect the chests of one of the 7 series using the corresponding color keys or joker keys that replace any color.

Steal keys or chests from other pirates with special cards, but be careful not to get them stolen back.

Once there are no more chests in the center of the table, the point values ​​of each chest won by the players are counted.

Whoever has the highest value of gold coins wins the game.

On board, sailors!

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

The Dragon of Mondragon.

The village of Mondragon is Mont Dragon, surmounted by its Château du Dragonnet!

The Drac, a winged, amphibian monster, had the face and shoulders of a young man on a reptile body (as described by Frédéric Mistral) and resided in the Rhône.

He went out regularly to feast on the inhabitants, especially the young girls, terrorizing the population by ransoming them.

Tired of undergoing the incessant assaults of the monster, the lord of the village, Guilhem, launched a desperate appeal.

Anyone who managed to kill the beast would receive his daughter Guillemette in marriage and the lordship of the village as a reward.

One day, a valiant knight, Arnaud, presented himself to take up the challenge.

At the cost of an epic fight, Arnaud brought down the beast, marrying Guillemette and becoming the new lord of the village, renamed Mondragon!

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of “Offs du JJV”!

December 2022, the rise of board games.

Once the crisis passed, the boom for board games experienced a new craze.

A need to meet and share together to help recreate the links among the communities of players.

Gaming associations, town halls, leisure and reception centres, or quite simply individuals and gaming enthusiasts have relaunched the gaming world.

By your desire to get together for a good time shared and your mood, the playful world was able to find its superb!

The Christmas and outdoor activities allowed us to play together again in complete freedom and to let the creativity of each of us express itself...

Many of you have followed the Christmas games on the site as well as the stories related to the Tales and Legends theme.

I had the pleasure of co-hosting with great animation teams like Lia Team and Team Fada!

Crazy teams, moments of delirium and unforgettable moments for the public as for us! ;)

I am very happy to find my different players all year round in animation, on the times that I propose but also at the end of the year with these brilliant teams. :)

The end of 2022 brought many new projects, in the Vaucluse in particular with the creation of new gaming associations!

I am very happy to see that in 5 years, the gaming world has evolved and that its different actors have not finished surprising us!

That's good, I'm like you, I like novelty! ;)

Hello everyone !


Today we are going to talk about Patatrap Quest!


Go on a quest, for 2 to 4 players for 10 minutes, and find the objects to defeat the big bosses!

 

For a very, very long time, the castle of Patatrap has been regularly invaded by all sorts of threatening and more or less evil creatures.


This is how the order of the intrepid was created, bringing together all the adventurers and adventurers of the region ready to defend the castle of Patatrap and its fabulous Tower with 1000 mirrors!


In turn, each player must move their Character token on the trapdoors of the game board. Use the mirrors to see the contents of the trapdoors.


The goal?


Collect useful equipment to fight the final Big Bad!


The first player who manages to land three blows wins the game. But watch out for trapped hatches, you'll have to remember their location...


Finally, unless the elf, the ghost or even the thief decides to get involved and make a mess.


A real dungeon crawler for children! Includes 5 different endlessly replayable adventures.
Do you dare to face Sheuloub the spider, Michel the werewolf, Elvys the vampire, Smok the dragon or even Babakazoo the cursed king?


To win Patatrap Quest, you must be the first player to successfully attack the "Big Bad" in the castle three times.
The castle consists of a wall of mirrors surrounding a central pillar. On a turn, roll the dice, then move a distance equal to the face of the die or the sum of the faces of the die.

When you land on a space in the castle, your character lowers a lever and whatever is depicted under that lever is then visible in the mirror.


Sometimes you need to scavenge gear, sometimes you need to trade boards, and sometimes you do something else.
When you have the right gear and can access the stairway to the top of the pillar, you can take on the Big Bad.


Draw the topmost token from its stack, then look at it secretly. If you can discard the represented object, you recover this token; otherwise, you're kicked out of the castle and have to start moving in again.

 

The first player to collect three tokens wins.


Patatrap Quest includes five Big Bads, each with its own stack of chips.

Hello everyone !

The Yule log that…poops (Catalonia)

In Catalonia, there is a unique tradition called Tió de Nadal, which vulgarly translates to “Christmas log”.

The hollowed-out log comes with a face, legs, and a little red hat, and starting December 8, families “feed” it every night, filling it with gifts and sweets.

They also put a blanket over the log to keep it warm.

On Christmas Eve, the log is placed in the (unlit) fireplace, and family members take turns hitting it with a stick, ordering it to defecate the gifts and sweets, while singing traditional songs.

After the beating, family members reach under the blanket of the log to retrieve the presents.

Welcome to a new opus of “Offs du JJV”!

June 2022: 4 years store.

I had the pleasure in June 2022 to share a privileged moment with all of you during the game activities and during the store's anniversary on Saturday June 25, 2022.

I didn't even stammer too much during the speech in store and yet it's not my forte...^^

And as always my guests were there and ready to play and have a good time together.

After looking for the key game with One Key, practicing different challenges with Olémains, for some you even played werewolf at 45!

I will repeat myself, but I love your enthusiasm and your unfailing enthusiasm when it comes to discovering the personalized animations that I am preparing for you.

I like to design unique game times, because I love to offer you a unique experience like you...

Animating with you is for me really playing the game of the playful world.

When I think that five years ago, I struggled to offer game animations, because no one knew what it consisted of.

And then, I had partners who trusted me like Mac Donald of Saint Romain in Viennois or town halls.

Then finally, I am now delighted to be able to say that my outdoor activities are complete and booked in advance. :)

This 4th year allowed me to start a very positive turn for the animations and for the sales in store or online.

I'm so happy that you continue to be present on a daily basis that I always have new ideas that come to me to share even more original times with you. ;)

I am satisfied to have held on despite the covid and to continue to love sharing with you my passion for board games. ;)

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

 

Today we are going to talk about Team Team!

 

Together, from 2 to 6 players for 10 to 20 minutes, find which animal is where!

 

As you might guess from the name, in Team Team you play as a team, with each team consisting of a speaker and a builder.

 

Each builder has a set of five tiles, with the tiles featuring five shapes, five colors, and five animals; each team's tiles have a different layout of these features.

 

Each builder lays his tiles in a row in front of him, and he wishes to arrange these tiles according to a pattern known only to the speaker, the pattern being the same for all teams.


At the start of a round, one of the speakers reveals a sound card, like "Woof!" or "Bong!", then they place a pattern card on a screen that is only visible through the speakers.

 

The pattern can be 3-5 animals in a row, 3-5 shapes in a row, or 3-5 colors in a row. The game then begins. Each builder begins by placing a finger on two different tiles, then their interlocutor:

 

Make the sound once - Bong! - if the builder has to finger different tiles.

Make the sound twice - Bong! Bof! — whether the builder should swap the finger tiles.

Make the sound three times - Bong! Bof! Bof! — if all the tiles are laid out correctly.

At this point, the builder slaps the multicolored tile in the center of the table.

 

If that team's tile layout is correct - and with only 3-4 tiles depicted on a template card, the tiles must be in the correct order and adjacent to each other - then they claim the template card as a point.

 

If they are incorrect, each other team scores a point.

 

The first team to score 3 points wins.

Hello everyone !


Lucky cobwebs (Ukraine)


Would you feel lucky if you found a spider web on your Christmas tree?


Probably not. But Ukrainians associate cobwebs with good omens.


This legend is actually taken from a popular tale, in which a poor family grew a Christmas tree from a pine cone.


The children were excited to decorate it, but the family could not afford decorations.


Sensing the family's desperation, the spiders spun shimmering webs of silk around the tree, which turned to silver and gold when the sun rose in the morning, leaving the family with a beautifully decorated tree.


Even today, Ukrainian families decorate their trees with cobwebs for good luck.

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Just Desserts!

To your desserts, from 2 to 5 players for 25 minutes, to place perfect orders!


It's Dessert Night!

The guests are here, and they are hungry!

Serve them their favorite sweets in this delicious dessert distribution game.

Become the best server of the evening by ensuring that all guests get their perfect desserts!

The guests are here, and they're hungry, so try to be the best waiter in this cafe by making sure all the guests get their perfect desserts!

In this card game, each player starts with a hand of three dessert cards while three guest cards are placed in the center of the table; each dessert card shows 1-3 tastes it satisfies, such as chocolate, fruit or pastry, while guest cards show what they crave as well as what they refuse to eat.

You take turns drawing a dessert card, adding a guest card to the table from the draw pile, then performing one of three actions:

- Serve (and claim) one or two guests by discarding one or more dessert cards to give them what they want (while avoiding what they don't want); if you give a guest their favorite item, you receive a tip with an additional dessert menu.


- Draw another dessert card.


- Lay down as many dessert cards as you want, then draw as many cards from the deck.

At the end of your turn, discard guests from the table so that only one guest from each "suit" is still waiting to be served - but the guest heading for the door (top of the discard pile) can still be claimed by any server.

If at any time you have served three guests of the same costume or five guests of different costumes, then you have won!

Just desserts includes game variations that let you steal guests from another server by sending more candy, force other servers to each drop a guest, and throw a surprise party to claim a guest out of turn.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone ! 


From roller skating to mass (Venezuela)


 While Australians are surfing, Venezuelans are rollerblading. 


This unusual Christmas tradition wants the entire capital of Caracas to go to Christmas mass on rollerblades on Christmas Day.


 In fact, vehicles are banned from many areas of the city before 8 a.m. 


As if this mode of transportation wasn't weird enough, the night before, kids tie one end of a string to their big toe and hang the other end from their bedroom window, so the roller skaters in passage can amicably pull the string on their way to mass the next morning.
