Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about 8 bit box!

Lovers of old-school video games, get out your coffee tables!

8Bit Box is a set of 3 board games, directly inspired by retrogaming for about 30 minutes and 3 to 6 players.

Each game board will remind you of the biggest names in video games of the 80s, which you will have the pleasure of introducing to your loved ones for incredible moments with friends or family.

With its 6 controllers, 8Bit Box allows you to invite up to 6 players for frenetic games.

 It contains all the basic equipment, common to all of your games (pawns, dice, tokens, etc.).

 The 3 included games are presented individually, like the game cartridges of yesteryear.

Each contains the specific hardware needed to play it, which complements that of 8Bit Box.

As for the controllers, they allow each player to plan and perform their game actions, such as the movement of characters or vehicles.

 All together, you play board games on a table that take up the major themes of video games.

It is clearer ?

So, don't wait any longer: unplug the screens, and open the 8Bit Box!

In the center of a printed circuit, Pixoid tries to escape the Bugs who want to catch him.

Controllers in hand, the Pixoid player and each Bug player move around the circuit.

Pixoid must survive as long as possible without being hit.

Bugs players, meanwhile, must coordinate their moves to capture Pixoid.

In this asymmetrical game in "all against one" mode, the players take turns embodying the brave Pixoid.

A fun and jubilant tribute to one of the most famous video games on the planet.

Pilot in the middle of obstacles and under the fire of opponents! Using your controller, you zigzag through a canyon to cross the finish line first.

Know how to position yourself wisely at each new course tile revealed, watch your fuel, and pick up the right bonus at the right time to leave your competitors in the dust!

A great futuristic racing classic, full of adrenaline and fun!

In this multi-test game, you will have to know how to manage your energy to become the God of the stadium.

Use your controller wisely to measure your effort, and know how to trust your teammates to take over if you are out of breath.

10 events await you: which team will bring back the most medals?

Stadium is a revamp of old-school sports games, swapping the frenzy of the controller for a tasty mix of management, tactical opportunism and team spirit.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Loops!

Embark on a journey of at least 15 minutes from 2 to 10 players for a high-flying moment.

Settle into the cockpit and take off for an uncontrolled adventure...

In LOOPS, players fly the same plane together, taking turns controlling its altitude and direction.

Keep the right cards in hand and trap your opponents by changing the direction or attitude of the plane.

The players take turns placing an altitude card (or several if they are identical), respecting 2 conditions:

- One direction: to the right or to the left; which indicates the order in which the players around the table must play.

- A base: positive or negative; which indicates whether the altitude of the aircraft should increase or decrease.

When a player cannot place any card during his turn, he recovers all the cards placed on the table.

Keep the right cards in hand to never be blocked.

Trap your opponents by changing the direction or attitude of the plane using special cards.

Be the first to run out of cards to win the game.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about the game of the goose!

A good classic, from 2 to 6 players and about 20 minutes, to land on the right squares. To your geese!

The game of the goose is a parlor game where pawns are moved according to the results of two dice.

Traditionally, this game of pure chance comprises 63 squares arranged in an inwardly-wound spiral with a number of traps.

The goal is to get to the last square first.

The basic rule is intangible. The game is played with 2 dice. A first move decides who will start.

The goose signals the lucky squares arranged 9 by 9.

No one can stop on these beneficial squares and the roll is then doubled.

• Who rolls 9 on the first roll, will go to 26 if he did it by 6 and 3, or to 53 if he did it by 4 and 5.

• Who drops to 6, where there is a bridge, will go to 12.

• Who drops to 19, where there is a hotel, rests when everyone plays 2 times.

• Which falls to 31, where there is a well waiting to be raised.

• Who drops to 42, where there is a maze returns to 304.

• Who falls to 52, where there is a prison waiting to be picked up.

• Who falls to 58, where there is death, starts again.

The first to reach 63, in the garden of the goose, wins the game.

 On condition of getting it right, otherwise he goes back, on as many squares as he has left to go.

If a player lands on a square already occupied by another player, he sends the latter back to the square from which he started.

There can only be one player per space.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Battle Gum!

No time to bubble! From 2 to 4 players and about 15 minutes, discard all your cards, but watch out for the traps!

We are here in a discard game where you will have to be the first to have no more cards in your hand.

It all starts with the usual distribution which will be divided into three parts.

Three cards in the players' hand, three cards placed in front of them face down and three others face up.

At the start of the game, players will be able to freely switch between their hand and the visible cards.

To initiate a trick, a player can place up to three cards provided that they are of the same value.

The following players must place one or more cards of equal or higher value than those already placed.

If by chance a player can no longer play cards that meet this rule, he collects all the cards already played and adds them to his hand.

A player who has played draws again to have three cards in hand again.

When the draw pile is exhausted, attack the cards placed in front of you.

In the deck of 54 cards, 22 have special powers. The 1 for example can also land a 13 (the strongest card).

The 8 will skip the next trick, etc.

The rules are proposed with variants which make the pile played disappear under certain conditions.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Witty Pong!

Ping, Pong, Ting, Tong! Something very strange is happening in the jungle for 2-8 players and about 15 minutes.

In Witty Pong, the ping pong table is recreated by laying four cards in a 2x2 square, with a ball token being placed on one of the cards.

 On their turn, a player turns over a card and places it on one of the three cards not covered by the ball. Two situations can occur:

• If the card represents a ball somewhere in the illustration, the player must move the ball token to a new card. If he says something or hesitates too long, he loses one of the three banana tokens he started the game with.

• If the card does not have a marble on it, the player must say the word “appropriate”, the word being determined by the letters and colors of the three cards uncovered. The word begins with "P" or "T" depending on which letter is displayed more frequently, and ends with "ong" or "ing" depending on whether more blue or red paddles are displayed. If he says the wrong word or takes too long, he loses a banana.

Lose all your bananas and you're out of the game. The last player standing wins.

 The game includes advanced rules that change what to say if the same letter or color is on all three palettes; additional rules allow for competitive play in which players can steal bananas from each other if they say the correct word first.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Chapito!

Experience 15 minutes of pure balance for 2 to 4 players! Join the circus and become the best acrobat to win!

The Chapito circus is back in town with a breathtaking acrobatic show!

Stack the character blocks on top of each other by

trying to reproduce one of the figures indicated by your cards.

Keep your balance well so as not to bring down the whole show!

Place the 3 Podium tiles in the center of the table, spacing them about 10 centimeters apart.

Place the 9 Character blocks around the Podium tiles.

Shuffle the cards and deal 4 to each player.

Everyone tries to reproduce on a podium one of the

figures imposed by the cards in his hand.

Either choose a Character block that is not yet in play on a Podium tile to place it above any block (or stack of blocks) already in play, or on an empty Podium tile.

Either move a block or stack of blocks already in play above another block (or stack of blocks), or onto an empty Podium tile.

When a player moves multiple blocks at once, they can only do so by holding the lowest block in the stack.

Blocks can only be placed in their upright position, without rotation or flipping.

 It is forbidden to make the exact opposite movement to that of the previous player.

At any time, even if it is not his turn, a player can shout: “Photo!” if a stack of blocks meets the conditions indicated by one of the cards in his hand.

He reveals his card and we check that he was not mistaken.

- if he is right, he places the card in front of him, face up and draws a new one from the pile to add it to his hand; then play resumes.

- if he made a mistake, he takes the card back in hand and the game continues.

If the same pile of Character blocks corresponds to several cards of a player, he can place them all in front of him to validate them.

He then draws to always have 4 cards in his hand.

If the card a player has just drawn corresponds to the layout of a stack in play, he can announce it and place it immediately before completing his hand again.

If a player knocks down a block or knocks over a stack of characters, their turn ends immediately, they must return one of the cards placed in front of them to the draw pile as a penalty.

If he doesn't have any, he doesn't return any and the turn passes to the next player.

Blocks that have fallen or are still in hand are replaced around the podiums.

The first player who manages to place 7 cards in front of him wins the game.

If several players play their seventh card at the same time, they share the victory.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Unsuspected Treasures!

Collect old furniture from a bulky waste collection site and make a profit by reselling it, for about 30 minutes for 3 to 6 players.

On a first-come, first-served basis, players can only take a few items at a time.

 And they must beware of thieves, who are on the prowl and just waiting to steal goods collected from players' homes.

 Each player takes a set of cards numbered from 0 to 5.

Each round consists of three phases which are played in the following order:

Deposit of new goods

The most valuable treasures to discover are at the bulky collection site. And they are increasing day by day!

Draw 1 mission card from the mission card pile and place it face up next to the other face up mission cards.

Take a merchandise tile from the cloth bag for each symbol on the mission card you just drew and place them in the bulky collection site, sorted according to their values.

Keep drawing mission cards until there are at least 2 goods tiles per player in the bulky collection site.

Any goods tiles in the possession of the players or that are next to the mission cards remain where they are and are not put in the bag.

Selection of the numbered card

Each player secretly chooses one of their 6 numbered cards and places it face down in their playing area.

After all players have finished placing their selected cards, all players turn their card face up.


If several players choose the same number, they fight over who can access the site.

Only the player with the lowest numbered contest token can leave their card on the table and can loot the bulky collection site.

The thief can steal as many goods tiles from his teammates as there are players heading to the bulky waste collection site.

Players who "stay at home" are not at risk of having their belongings stolen from the thief.

Once a player has all the goods corresponding to one of the mission cards, they can complete the mission by exchanging these goods.

A radio tile can also be used as a joker for any other commodity tile.

Once all the players have finished ransacking the bulky waste collection site, everyone gets their numbered card.

 Players may keep any collected goods tiles that have not been used to complete a mission.

 If there are any Mission cards and/or Goods tiles left, these also remain where they are.

Once the last mission card has been drawn from the reserve pile, the round is played until the end.

The game ends once the round is over.

Each player adds up the value of his completed missions, including the value of the goods tiles he still has in his possession.

The player with the highest score wins.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about the Yellow Dwarf!

The Yellow Dwarf game is played by 3 to 8 players for 30 minutes where you earn tokens by getting rid of your cards as quickly as possible.

The goal of the Yellow Dwarf game is to win tokens by getting rid of his cards as quickly as possible, discarding them in ascending order by performing suits ranging from ace to king, without worrying about the color.

A game is usually played over several rounds. At the start of the game, the players all have an equivalent betting token value.


Each player is distributed tokens for a minimum value of 50.

 The following values ​​are most often given to the tokens: 1 for the circles, 5 for the small rectangles and 10 for the large rectangles.

At the start of a Yellow Dwarf round:

Players place their tokens in the bowls on the board, for values ​​of:

 1 to 10 of diamonds,
 2 to the Jack of Clubs,
 3 to the queen of spades,
 4 to the King of Hearts,
 5 to the Yellow Dwarf (the 7 of diamonds).
The 52 cards of the game (without the jokers) are distributed to the players:
 at 3, 15 cards per player and 7 on the heel,
 at 4, 12 cards per player and 4 on the heel,
 5, 9 cards per player and 7 on the heel,
 6, 8 cards per player and 4 on the heel,
 7, 7 cards per player and 3 on the heel,
 at 8, 6 cards per player and 4 on the heel.

Players must discard their cards in ascending order (from Ace to King), without color distinction (a 5 of spades can follow a 4 of diamonds).

Designate the player who will start the game (the youngest player, the tallest or by drawing lots...).

This first player, the dealer, begins the round by starting an increasing sequence and by announcing the cards "5, 6, 7, 8...".


When he can no longer extend his sequence of cards, he announces the missing card: "5, 6, 7, 8, without 9" and passes the hand.

His neighbor on the left continues the sequence until he can no longer complete it: "9, 10, jack, no queen".

The player who arrives at the King can start a new sequence from any card.

When a player shows a card present on the Yellow Dwarf board (10 of diamonds, Jack of clubs, Queen of spades, King of hearts or 7 of diamonds), he announces it and pockets the bet present in the corresponding bowl.

 If a player forgets to pocket his bet or does not have the opportunity to place his bet card(s), he must double the bet in the bowl at the end of the round.

To win a game of Yellow Dwarf you have to win as many tokens as possible.

You can earn tokens:

 by placing and announcing a card from the board,
 finishing the round first. A round ends when a player has gotten rid of all his cards.
The other players must then give him as many tokens as the sum of the card values ​​remaining in their hand; knowing that the values ​​of the cards are:
  Ace, King, Queen, Jack = 10 points
 10 to 2 = Value of the card (8 points for the eight, 7 points for the 7...)

When a player can no longer place bets at the start of the round, he leaves the game.

When the first player scrolls through all his cards at once, he performs the "Grand Opera".

A rare but profitable move, the player then recovers all the chips bet on the Yellow Dwarf board and the other players must give him the value of their hands in chips, enough to upset more than one!

We could give the clue word “Veterinarian” because it is a doctor for animals.

After announcing your clue word, hope the team finds the link and contact information for your clue!

 If your team finds the correct coordinates, we place the map that is there upside down to signal that the location is taken.

If your team can't find your coordinates, we turn the card over.

It will no longer be possible to make words corresponding to these coordinates become.

The ideal would be to find all the coordinates of each one.

Will you be able to do the maximum?

 If it gives the correct location, the decryptors advance in their deductions, if the location is wrong, it also gives information as to the letter to be found, but it also awards a point to the coder.

Each player has four architects numbered from 1 to 4 and during a turn, a player places an architect next to a row or column in the grid, claims the tile that is as far as the number of the placed architect (e.g. the fourth tile in for architect #4), places that tile in the appropriately numbered row or column on the player's 4x4 city board, then claims all resources associated with the tile (inhabitants or energy).

 After four rounds, the game ends. Players can move dwellers and energy between their tiles at any point in the game to see how to maximize their score.

At the end of the game, they then score for each of the six building types based on how well their city was built – as long as they have activated the buildings with dwellers or energy as needed.

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Edamame!

It might be the end of the beans in 45-60 minutes for 2-4 players, but don't get too fired up!

Do you know what an Edamame is?

 An Edamame is a kind of soy that can be eaten in Japanese restaurants.

It's also what you are in this game.

As the leader of an Edamame clan, you will raise a dragon because you need its life energy to sustain you.

 To do this, you will need to recruit new Edamame to strengthen your clan.

You will send them to work for resources and you will also make your opponent's Edamame work for you.

Finally, you will use your resources to raise your dragon.

A game of Edamame will be timed by the number of dragon cards that will be purchased by players.

In a 2-player game, a round corresponds to 3 dragon upgrades.

 In a 3 or 4 player game, a round corresponds to 4 dragon upgrades.

At the end of each round, everyone will check a common intermediate objective.

After 3 rounds, the game will end with an honor championship in which each clan will compete.

So who will win?

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Hanafuda Koi Koi!

Develop your floral strategies in 40 minutes as a duo, based on seasonal flowers and combos.

A traditional Japanese two-player card game played with the beautiful Hanafuda (literally "flower card") deck. Setup: the cards are all shuffled, and a card is randomly revealed: the player whose birthday month is closest to the month of the revealed card is the first player and therefore the dealer.

The cards are again shuffled and dealt, two by two, to the two players, as for the greenhouse visible in the middle of the table. Turn: Next, each player proceeds as follows: first, they discard a card face up on the table from their hand. If this card corresponds to another card on the table (corresponding months), the player then wins the two cards that he places in his collection face up, in front of him. The collection is always displayed in 4 columns, as follows: Flowers, Ribbons, Animals and Specials.

If it does not match anything, the discarded card remains on the table. Second, whether it matches or not, the player then draws the top card from the deck face down and proceeds in the same way: if it does not match any card, the drawn card remains on the table, but if it matches a card , the player wins the two cards that he adds to his collection. Then the other player takes his turn.

End of turn: At the end of a player's turn, if he has Yakus, he can stop the current month (round) by indicating his Yakus, then the points are scored and the next month begins. However, if he wishes to continue in order to increase his score for that month, he says "Koi-Koi" and the other player takes his turn. If later in the game, the player who said Koi-Koi wins another Yaku OR increases his previous Yakus, then he can stop the game again or say Koi-Koi, as many times as he wants. But if a player gets a Yaku in a game where his opponent has already said Koi-Koi, then he has the right either to say Koi-Koi too or to stop the game and receive his points, thus causing his opponent to get no points at all this month.

End: Since each player has 8 cards in hand, a month (round) can at worst last 16 turns. In the case of a game where one (or both) player(s) said Koi-Koi and no other Yakus were added or increased before the end of the month, then only the last player who said Koi- Koi scores his points as usual. The winner of one month becomes the croupier of the following month, or remains the same if there was no winner.

But if a player gets a Yaku in a game where his opponent has already said Koi-Koi, then he has the right either to say Koi-Koi too or to stop the game and receive his points, thus causing his opponent to get no points. at all this month. Each Yaku can be added to the others.

Here are the Yakus:

Basic Yakus 10 Flowers / Kasu: 1 point (Each additional Flower earns 1 point) 5 Ribbons / Tanzaku: 1 point (Each additional Ribbon earns 1 point) 3 Purple (blue) Ribbons / Aotan: 5 points 3 Ribbons with Poems (red) / Akatan: 5 points 5 Animals / Tane: 1 Point (Each additional Animal earns 1 point) Deer + Boar + Butterflies / Ino Shika Chô: 5 Points 3 Specials without Rain Man / Sankô: 5 Points 4 Specials with the Rain Man / Ameshikô: 6 points 4 Special without the Rain Man / Shikô: 8 Points 5 Specials: Gokô: 10 points Special Yakus The Moon + The Sake Cup / Tsukizake: 5 points (Bonus Yaku, only in addition to at least another normal Yaku) The Cherry Curtain + The Saké / Hanamizake Cup: 5 points (Bonus Yaku, only in addition to at least one other normal Yaku) The Iris Flower is a "Joker" card: it can either be counted as an Animal or as a Flower to form a Kasu (but not both). The 4 Cards of the Current Month / TsukiFuda: 5 points No Yakus / OyaKen: 1 point The game ends when a player reaches 50 points.

In some variants, at the end of a month, the points scored by a player are subtracted from his opponent's score.

In some variants, the player with the most points at the end of the year (December) wins the game.

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Sushi Express!

In Sushi Express, from 3 to 6 players, become the best sushi delivery man for around 30 minutes.

Deliverers in a Japanese restaurant, players must accumulate the maximum number of Customer cards before the end of the game.

The game path is made up of 12 tiles (10 House tiles, 1 Sushi Express tile and 1 Park tile), laid out in a circle around a mini telephone-shaped board. Each time a player makes a complete turn (thus passing in front of the Sushi Express tile) he collects a Customer card from among those offered face up. In addition, a player who manages to stop in the park collects a face down Action card.

 Two players cannot be on the same tile: the occupied tiles are therefore skipped "for free" when moving (they do not count when calculating the distance).

At each game turn, the players bet on the result of a roll of a pair of dice (thus from 2 to 12) by placing a marker on the central board.

Whoever has chosen the highest number rolls the dice first: he has two attempts to obtain an amount greater than or equal to his bet.

If he fails, he does not move his delivery man, but wins an Action card, and it is up to the next player to roll the dice to try to reach his bet, and so on...

 As soon as the player obtains on the dice the sum he had announced or more (for example 8), he advances his deliverer by the number of squares fixed (8 tiles, even if he rolled 10 on the dice), without counting the occupied squares.

 If he passes in front of the Sushi Express tile, he chooses a Customer card among those revealed (there are as many revealed cards as there are players).

The players who follow (who had therefore bet less than 8) then advance their delivery men automatically (without having to roll the dice) and also recover a Customer card if they pass in front of the Sushi Express.

Customer cards are available in different colors.

The first card of each color that you collect is worth 3 points, the following cards 1 point (for example, the 1st yellow: 3 pts, the 1st green: 3 pts, the 2nd green: 1 pt only). It is therefore necessary to try to diversify the colors.

There are also Tips cards: the player with the least Tips at the end of the game takes negative points.

Finally, the Action cards allow you to bypass certain rules: place the same bet as another player, swap your bet with that of another player, advance your delivery person one more tile, get a tip bonus, etc…

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Tajuto!

Let's go to Japan with Tajuto, a game for 2 to 4 players lasting about 45 to 60 minutes.

In 532, Buddhism arrived in Japan, and took its place alongside Shintoism, which was the official religion.

Prince Shotoku, seduced by this new religion, commissioned Buddhist monks to build a village with a huge garden, in which 8 pagodas (tajuto) would be erected.

He announced that once the fourth tajuto is completed, it will make this city an important pilgrimage destination for all Buddhists around the world.

The Buddhist monk who has attained the highest level of Spirituality, through deep meditation and other mental qualities, at that exact moment will be rewarded, and the Prince will appoint him "Grand Guardian of the Sacred Garden of the Eight Pagodas", and this monk will become the overseer of the pilgrimage.

In Tajuto, players take on the role of Buddhist monks, trying to achieve the highest spirituality.

On their turn, they can activate their action tiles to draw (and build) pagoda tiles from the bag, make offerings to gain meditation points, and acquire tiles that will help them progress faster or gain spirituality points.

Activating more than one action tile or acquiring tiles costs meditation points.

The game ends once the fourth pagoda is completed. The player with the most spirituality points wins.

The main feature of the game is to draw the pagoda tiles from the bag.

The pagoda tiles have a decreasing size per level.

 Players are encouraged to search blindly to try to recognize the floor by its size, but they probably won't be able to detect color that way, so drawing the size of the floor they want depends on their tactile recognition, but they must weigh their chances of drawing the flush they want.

 Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Wangdo!

Wangdo lets you explore Northeast Asia for 2-4 players and a game time of 30 minutes.

Long ago, before the age of man, there were four clans of bears that helped the king rule over Northeast Asia.

The time has come for the king to decide who will be the heir to the throne.

Clans send their princes out into the world to gain all the qualifications to be the next king.

They travel from town to town and build statues of sacred bears; in return they inherit knowledge of religion, education, military and trade.

The new journey is about to begin.

Who will succeed to the throne?

Summary of the game

1. Place the bear stelae to acquire a knowledge token.

2. Pay the equivalent in number and color at the temples.

3. If a player is done collecting tokens, the game ends.

During a turn, we take either 2 bear steles of any visible color available on the temples.

You can also choose to draw three at random or grab a token from the board.

To recover it, another bear stele of the player will have to replace it by being placed on an adjacent stele and which is not the color of the stele that you want to place.

You will then have to pay the number of steles of the same color as the adjacent steles.

The last stele placed on a temple line leads to the discard of all the steles in the bag and makes the person who places it win a stele of the temple they want.

The token is then placed on the player's personal board. We have completed a column as soon as we have two tokens when playing 4 and 3 when playing 2.

You can then perform the special actions offered by the bonus card.

The game ends when a player has collected 2 of the 4 different tokens.

Good day and good game ;)

7 wonders02 06 23

On 02/06/2023

Hello everyone ! Today we are going to talk about 7 wonders!

7 wonders is a cooperative game of about 30 minutes for 2 to 7 players. You are the ruler of one of the 7 great cities of the ancient world. Gather resources, develop trade routes and assert your military supremacy.

Build your city and erect an architectural marvel that will transcend future times. 7 Wonders spans three ages.

At each age, players are dealt seven cards from a particular deck, choose one of those cards, and then pass the rest to an adjacent player.

Players reveal their cards simultaneously, paying resources as needed or collecting resources or interacting with other players in different ways. (Players have individual boards with special powers on which to arrange their cards, and the boards are double-sided). Each player then chooses another card from the deck passed to them, and the process repeats until players have six cards in play from that age.  After three ages, the game ends.

In essence, 7 Wonders is a card development game. Some cards have immediate effects, while others provide bonuses or upgrades later in the game.  Some cards offer discounts on future purchases. Some provide military strength to defeat your neighbors and others only give victory points.

Each card is played immediately after being drafted, so you'll know what cards your neighbor is getting and how their choices may affect what you've already built.

Cards are passed left-right-left over all three ages, so you need to keep an eye out for neighbors back and forth. Although the previous editions box is listed as being for 3-7 players, there is an official 2-player variant included in the instructions.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone ! Today we are going to talk about Dragomino!

Dragomino is an exploratory game of dominoes lasting about 15 minutes for 2 to 4 players.

The big moment has arrived. You have been named "dragon trainer", and you have the chance to meet them on a mysterious island.

But you are not the only trainer sent to these lands. Who among you will discover the most baby dragons?

Dragomino features gameplay similar to Kingdomino, but with gameplay geared towards younger players.  

At the start of a turn, you reveal four domino tiles, with each domino featuring two types of landscapes.

Starting with whoever has the mama dragon figurine, players draw a tile and add it to their landscape.

 If the newly placed tile matches the landscape of one or more adjacent tiles, then you draw an egg tile for that type of landscape and place it face up where those tiles meet.

Some eggs feature a baby dragon, which is worth 1 point; others feature an empty shell, which allows you to take the mama dragon, giving you first choice on the next turn.

After seven rounds, the game ends and the player holding the mother dragon scores 1 extra point.

Good day and good game ;)

Azul19 05 23

2 words game

On 19/05/2023

Hello everyone ! Today we are going to talk about Azul!

Azul is a 30-40 minute tiling strategy game for 2-4 players.

Each player will take turns taking tiles and placing them on their pattern lines. He must take all the tiles of the same color from a single factory, or take all the tiles of the same color from the center of the table. Once the player has taken the tiles, he must immediately place them on one of his pattern lines by placing them from right to left.  In the same line, only tiles of the same color can appear, and this color must not yet have been placed in this line.

When all the tiles in a line are placed, the line is considered complete. If you have captured more tiles than you had spaces, then you must place the excess in your floor line (bottom), which will inflict a penalty on you at the end of the round. Each time a player takes tiles from a factory, they must take the rest of the tiles from that factory that they did not take and place them in the center of the table. After a while, the pile in the center can be large and even dangerous, as you can be forced to take many penalties.

You are obliged to take at least one tile on each of your turns. In this phase, each player looks at their pattern lines and for each one that is complete, they can take a tile from that line and place it on the space of the corresponding color (in the same line, follow the arrow). The rest of the tiles are returned to the box.

For each tile that is placed on your wall this turn, starting with the top one and going down, we will then see if it forms a horizontal line with the others. If this is the case, a number of points equal to the size of this line is scored. Same thing for a vertical line. The two can thus be combined, but only if the tile placed this turn is part of the line. If your tile is alone, you only score one point for that tile. Score your points using the black cube on your score track.

 Finally, subtract the number of points indicated for each tile in the floor line. The number of penalty points increases over time, so the more you have in the same round, the higher the penalty will be (it starts at -1 and ends at -3 per space). Fortunately, it is impossible to go beyond 7 penalty tiles, which is still -14. Once the penalty has been deducted from your score, discard all the floor line tiles and don't forget to put the first player pawn back in the middle of the factories.

If a player has completed at least one horizontal line, then the game ends and the final scoring proceeds. If no player has completed a horizontal line, then the game continues, we put 4 tiles back on each factory. Once the game is over, for each line completed, each player scores 2 additional points.

For each completed column, 7 points. And finally, if a player has 5 identical tiles in his wall, he scores 10 points for each group of 5 tiles of identical color.

The winner is the one who has scored the most points!

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about Dixit!

Dixit is a cooperative game of about 30 minutes for 3 to 8 players.

A player is the storyteller of the round and looks at the pictures on the 6 cards in his hand. From one of them, she composes a sentence and pronounces it aloud (without showing the card to the other players).

The storyteller shuffles her card with all the cards received.

All images are shown face up and each player must bet which image was the storyteller's.

If no one or everyone finds the correct card, the storyteller scores 0 and each of the other players scores 2.

Otherwise, the storyteller and whoever found the correct answer score 3.

Players score 1 point for each vote for their own card.  

The game ends when the draw pile is empty or if a player scores 30 points.

In both cases, the player with the most points wins the game.

Hello everyone ! Today we are going to talk about Rummukib!

Rummikub is a game of sequences of 30 to 45 minutes for 2 to 4 players where you have to put number sequences according to the tiles you have.

To win at Rummikub, you must position all your tiles on the table by making sequences or series.

Sequences: You place AT LEAST 3 consecutive tiles (i.e. on which the numbers shown follow one another) of the same color. The series: You deposit, AT LEAST, 3 tiles on which are indicated the same number but of different colors.

To start the game, each player draws 14 tiles which he then places on his easel so that the curious little ones cannot peek!!! The rest of the tiles will be used for the draw pile.

To determine who will start, each player draws a tile. The one with the highest number will start.

ATTENTION: For a player to start, the combination(s) he places on the table must be worth at least 30 points. If not, the player draws a tile and it is another player's turn.

Reminder: A combination must have at least 3 tiles, but you can also use your tiles in different ways:

 If a player uses a joker in his combination, you can recover it by placing the tile he was replacing. ATTENTION the joker must be used immediately in another combination.

 You can also add a tile at the end of a combination in order to recover the tile that is at the other end. to use it immediately in another combination).

 If you want to use a tile already positioned in a combination you can but you must absolutely replace it with another tile.

 You can also divide an already positioned suit into two. you can remove one in order to use it. The player who lays his tiles the fastest wins the game.

The other players must therefore add up the points remaining on their rack.

These points will be negative points. A joker left on your easel will cost you 30 negative points.

Supergang21 04 23

2 words game

On 21/04/2023

Hello everyone !

Today we are going to talk about SuperGang!

SuperGang is a cooperative game of about 120 minutes for 3 to 5 players.

In SuperGang, each player is the godfather of a mafia team made up of three gangsters: the killer, the dealer and the vamp (femme fatale).

The object of the game is to own a complete suburb of the city or be the last surviving gang.

A variation has a fifth player having the cops with the goal of sending all the gangs to jail.

You can steal money from the streets, sell drugs, vampirize other players' characters, buy/rob/rob shops, or kill other characters, shopkeepers, or cops.  

The killer has a kill bonus, the femme fatale can vampirize characters, and the dealer is the only one who can deal (of course).

The cops are played by the player whose turn it is (so they move every turn of each player) except in the variant where they are played by a player.

 They can testify against or arrest gangsters but they can also be bought off.

The fights (duels) are resolved in the following way and are one of the originalities of the game.

Each player involved rolls the dice according to the characters in the duel (1D6, 1D6+2 for a killer, 2D6 for a cop) and adds them up.  The highest roll acts first and is the attacker.

A cardboard figurine is set up for each character participating in the duel.

 The attacker fires the dart gun at the targets with as many darts as the difference between the totals rolled. If he shoots all the opposing characters, he wins. Then the defender shoots with the same number of darts.

This exchange continues until one player has killed all of the other's targets. A face down target means the character has been killed. Face up means he is only wounded.

 If all 3 of a player's characters are dead at the same time, he loses. He should, however, recruit reinforcements before that happens.

Good day and good game ;)
