The Witches: A Discworld Game is the second of three games by Martin Wallace set in Terry Pratchet...ts Discworld, the first being Discworld: Ankh-Morpork.

The Witches is set in the magically charged land of Lancre. Players take on the role of trainee witches, such as Tiffany Aching and Petulia Gristle, learning their craft and dealing with all the problems, both petty and serious, that life on Discworld can throw at them. A subtle blend of headology, magic and, of course, the all-important cup of tea will see our heroines tackle everything from a sick pig to a full-blown invasion of elves. Each player tries to be better at everything than the others, while also cooperating to prevent crises from escalating.

Life can be tough for a young witch in Lancre. Fear not, however, as some of Terry Pratchetts most famous characters will be on hand to aid your quest. Along the way you will meet Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick, as well as a rich supporting cast of familiar faces from the Discworld series. When things get really tough and you feel you are turning Black Aliss, you can always have a cup of tea with one of your fellow witches.

The Witches can be played competitively, cooperatively, or solo.

Contains:

- 1 game board
- 55 cards
- 80 counters
- 4 trainee witch displays
- 4 wooden pieces
- 4 custom dice
- 1 player aid card
- Rulebook

Catan: Explorers and Pirates is the fourth major expansion for The Settlers of Catan (following Seafarers, Cities and Knights and ...Traders and Barbarians) and it includes five scenarios and three missions; some of the scenarios make use of the missions while others do not.Catan: Explorers and Pirates differs from the Catan base game in three main ways. First, instead of having only a single island in the game on which players build and compete for resources, three islands are present but the landscape of only one of these islands is known at the start of the game. Players start on this island, then build ships and bring settlers into play so that they can then travel to new lands. When a ship ends its movement on unexplored territory, that hex is revealed and a randomly-drawn number chip placed on it, with the player earning one resource as a reward assuming the hex produces resources, that is. (The number of unknown tiles varies from 16 to 32, depending on the scenario.) A settler and ship can be transformed into a port settlement, from which roads and new ships can be built to enable further exploration.Second, instead of using cities, Catan: Explorers and Pirates allows players to build port settlements for two corn and two ore, with a port settlement supplying one resource when the adjacent number is rolled at the start of a turn. Like cities, port settlements are worth two victory points (VPs), and the number of VPs required to win depends on the scenario.Third, if a Read More

By Rio Grande Games<br /><br />Players: 2 to 3<br />Playing Time: 210 minutes<br />Ages: 14 and up<br /><br />In October 1740, Cha...rles VI, the German emperor and the Austrian head of state, dies. Succession falls on his oldest daughter, the 23 year old Maria Theresa. However, by Imperial law and tradition, women cannot succeed to the Imperial throne. Although the other states of Europe had agreed to Maria Theresa succession only a few years before by signing the Pragmatic sanction, her enemies now regard Austria as easy prey. Bavaria and Saxony lay claim to large swathes of Hapsburg possessions. Supported by France, Bavaria is even claiming the Imperial title itself. And what could be easier to achieve? Austria is isolated and ruled by a young, inexperienced, and, it is assumed, weak woman.<br /><br />In December 1740, the War of the Austrian Succession nally breaks out. Seizing the opportunity, Frederick II of Prussia himself King for only six months invades the Austrian province Silesia, driven by his ambition for power and personal glory. The Prussian surprise attack takes Silesia with scarcely a fight. In Spring 1741, Bavaria, Saxony and France take up arms as well. Engulfed by this wave of attacks, Austria seems doomed. However, the attackers have underestimated Maria Theresa, her strength of character, and her erce tenacity. Against the advice of her ministers, she is not willing to give up the smallest part of her heritage. Read More
