Hello everyone !

Today we're going to talk about Penny Papers!

In Penny Papers, go on a 30-minute adventure, from 8 years old and from 1 to 4 players without forgetting the peppers to score the highest score!

Adventure is before us with this series of small strategic games.

We roll the 3 dice and the result is common for all players, who write down the path they wish to take to obtain objectives.

We then advance to the heart of the adventure in more depth to complete our grid in order to score as many points as possible.

All players write numbers into their grid optimally to get the most victory points.

 Test your ability to manage space and use dice special effects wisely.

Oh, and don't miss an opportunity to upset your opponents' grids when dangers appear!

Influence the grids of other players with your roll of the dice and adapt to the different results to win this adventure!

The number of players is unlimited since everyone plays at the same time!

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Galapagos Islands (Ecuador)

The Galapagos Islands are an archipelago and province of Ecuador located in the northeast of the South Pacific Ocean, at the latitude of the equator.

The Galapagos Islands are also called the “Columbus Archipelago”. Unofficially, they are also called “the Enchanted”.

“Islas de los Galápagos” means “Islands of the Sea Turtles”.

Among the 48 eminences that form the Galapagos archipelago only 19 of them are islands. The remaining 29 are uninhabited islets, with all the local population concentrated on the islands of Santa Cruz, San Cristóbal, Isabela and Floreana.

The interior of the islands is, due to its volcanic formation, quite mountainous; moreover, it is the craters which represent the highest points of the islands, which can reach up to 1,707 m (Wolf volcano).

The oldest island, San Cristóbal, only reaches an altitude of 730 meters compared to 1,476 meters for the island of Fernandina, one of the most recent.

The Galapagos Islands are depicted in the Mysterious Cities of Gold cartoon.

Hello everyone!

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

Chili dice, the dice are cast and life spices up their score.

The die is cast throughout the year. And sometimes they don’t lack spice…

It happened to me when I embarked on a new project, to wonder if I was capable of carrying it out and to be afraid to commit to it thinking that I would not be qualified enough to carry it out…

I'm thinking, for example, of the first team building around the second year of the store where I was asked to lead a group of 20 people.

So many people for this type of event for the first time, it was really stressful, I assure you.

I felt like I had forgotten half of my equipment and then didn't know where to stand in front of 20 pairs of eyes...

And then, I tried everything and launched different styles of play mixing cooperation and competitive. This isn't the best idea I could have had...

Clearly competitiveness won out over cooperation and they all lost.

And I can tell you that I felt the spices of life there... :s . I was very hot because I was so stressed...

And then, DING, I said to myself, damn it, we're going to try to integrate role play which will allow them to integrate the competitive game and end up being forced to cooperate and succeed together.

Competent and competitive each in their field, I understood that this team needed to see that they all had weak points to help each other.

Finally, realizing that their colleagues also had shortcomings allowed them to create the beginnings of cohesion by initiating a more calm dialogue.

In the end, I still managed to initiate the beginnings of a dialogue in this team. The following team building sessions went very well. ;)

In short, one of the spicy episodes of the store.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we're going to talk about Chili Dice!

In Chili Dice, create dice combos for 30 minutes, from 8 years old and from 1 to 4 players without forgetting the chili peppers to score the highest score!

In Chili Dice, you can roll the dice as many times as you want during a round to try to maximize your score.

But you only have thirty dice rolls at most in the entire game, so be careful when you try your luck!

Chili Dice includes a set of six six-sided dice, with one side on each die having red pips instead of white, with a red 1 on one die, a red 2 on another, and so on.

On a turn, you roll all the dice, set aside any dice you want, and rotate any red die facing the side you want (or leave them as is).

You can re-roll the remaining dice and repeat the process, noting each roll on the score sheet.

 When you stop, you score the dice in one of the ten fields on the score sheet, scoring for the numbers 1 through 6 (the red die doubling your score, if present); a straight; red dice; sets; and everything you have in front of you.

If you complete all ten fields before maxing out your rolls, you receive 5 points for each unused roll.

Whoever scores the most points wins!

Hello everyone !

Caño Cristales (Colombia)

The Caño Cristales “the stream of crystals” is a river in Colombia, a tributary of the Guayabero River, located in the Serrenia de la Macarena.

The Caño Cristales is commonly known as the “river of five colors” or “the most beautiful river in the world”. It owes this nickname to the plants which, from September to November, give it a green, red and yellow color.

The geological formations of the Caño Cristales River, with sediments and rocks approximately 1.2 billion years old, combined with the abundance of aquatic plants create a unique color.

The Caño Cristales is a torrential river with many waterfalls and rapids.

At several points of its bed we find natural cavities called "devil's pots" formed by the impact of pebbles carried by the current against relatively less hard parts of the bottom.

Once these pebbles fall into one of these cavities, they gradually widen it by spinning driven by the current and banging against its walls.

Hello everyone!

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

Oceanos, oceans of shared fun moments.

Since I dove into the gaming world with you in 2018, I don't regret having taken the plunge into the deep end of gaming makers. ;)

With so many talented authors and creators, we have not finished surfing on an ever more interesting and creative gaming world.

The wave of board games arrived in Vaison a few years ago and many players are joining in the pleasure of the playful ocean.

I personally like playing with you and discovering with you all these new things that are available to us. There are so many innovative and original games to try that one year is not enough... :)

The Cannes International Games Festival allows you to discover part of them in advance so that you can then show them to you in animation and offer them to you in store as soon as they are released.

There hasn't been a single moment in almost 6 years when I haven't enjoyed fun moments and discussions with you all, so thank you!

Thank you for your trust and enthusiasm on a daily basis and for ensuring that in Vaison too, we play the game. ;)

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Oceanos!

 In Oceanos, play as an expedition captain for 15 to 20 minutes, from 8 years old and 2 to 4 players collect astonishing animal species!

Throughout the game, the player composes his underwater expedition by arranging his exploration cards on three superimposed lines.

Each captain chooses an expedition card and passes them to the other captains who do the same. The exploration cards contain several elements that allow you to score points or improve your submarine.

 Each submarine is made up of five elements which improve as you progress through the levels: a thruster, an engine, a cockpit, an aquarium and a diving hatch.

Exploration cards represent the discoveries of expeditions which are either positive (animals, corals, treasures), negative (kraken eyes) or improvements (bases and crystals).

 The game is played in 3 rounds of rounds. Each player chooses a color and assembles their submarine with the level pieces, then after placing the diver and fuel tokens, we randomly draw a kraken token for the 3 sizes.

 The expedition cards of the round are distributed, then each player receives an exploration card per possessed periscope.

You choose an exploration card to play face down in front of you, then the players place them from left to right on the same line. We will have one line of exploration cards per round. Fuel tokens allow you to keep a card face down for safekeeping.

The diver token allows you to recover the treasures found there and all those on the cards under which they are found on the ascent on a map with a treasure.

To improve your submarine, the crystals placed before the base will determine its level at the end of the round.

You earn points based on the animals collected and the submarine thrusters.

Then we count the Kraken's points with a token. It is the player who has the most on his cards who loses the points associated with the token of the current level.

At the end of the game, the player with the most victory points is the winner.

Hello everyone !

Los Roques Archipelago (Venezuela)

The Los Roques Archipelago is a federal dependency of Venezuela consisting of approximately 350 islands, cays or islets located approximately 130 km off the Venezuelan coast.

Gran Roque, the main island, is located in the north of the archipelago, 146 km from the small town of Naiguata, on the Venezuelan coast.

This island complex has a population of 1,500 inhabitants.

Due to the presence of a wide variety of seabirds and a very rich aquatic fauna, the government transformed the archipelago into a national park in 1972. It is the Los Roques Archipelago National Park.

The main island is Gran Roque (the big Roc), the only inhabited island and where the airport is located.

Other important islands are Francisqui, Nordisqui and Madrisqui y Crasqui. The archipelago was recognized as a Ramsar site on September 4, 1996.

These islands receive around 58,000 visitors per year, mainly for the day from Caracas.

Hello everyone!

Welcome to a new opus of “JJV Offs”!

Without tail or head, resolve the insolvent.

Sometimes we have the impression that certain things cannot be solved. And yet, there is often a solution to be found or an alternative that offers a good compromise.

At the moment we can feel overwhelmed, which is completely normal, then by thinking about it with a clear head, find the beginnings of solutions.

I have already had to end partnerships because the relationship was no longer professional on the applicant's side.

I can make concessions and adjustments to best suit what a partner is asking of me, but as the expression goes “when respect is no longer served, you have to know how to leave the table”…

So I went to sit at other tables, much more welcoming, who see on a daily basis my investment in our partnerships and do not listen to defamatory rumors...

And then there are also these partnerships which stop, due to lack of time, but which are added to other partnerships or become your references without you having to ask. :)

Thank you to all these people who showed me that even in partnerships, mutual respect is necessary to work on healthy foundations and that in the end actions speak more than words...

And above all, thank you to all my partners who make the everyday life of the gaming world a magical moment!

I am very happy that our partnerships continue and allow us to contribute to the development of the board game world in Vaison and its surroundings!

Difficulties shape us much more than when everything works the first time. So thank you all for these daily experiences. :)

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we're going to talk about Sans queue ni tête!

Place your chameleons for 15 to 20 minutes, from 8 years old and from 2 to 4 players to win the game!

You have to rebuild the chameleons on the table piece by piece and try not to be the color with the most points on any of them.

At the end of a round, the player whose color has the most points on a chameleon will score those points.

Players can score on multiple chameleons at once.

Once a player reaches 32 points, the game is over and the player with the fewest points wins.

A complete game takes place over several turns, a turn is made up of 6 turns, a turn is made up of 3 phases

1.Choose cards Each player secretly selects the card he wishes to play and places it face down on the table.

2. Roll the dice When each player has a face down card in front of them, everyone rolls their die. The player with the lowest score starts. In the event of a tie, tied players reroll their dice until a winner emerges.

3. Playing card The first player reveals his card and plays it. Then, starting with the player to their left, the other players take turns doing the same in a clockwise direction.

Once you start building a chameleon, you need to finish building it by placing cards on it clockwise.

When all players have played, begin the next round by starting again from phase 1.
