No Assembly Required No Batteries Required Each player leads a five-member group of four adventurers and a researcher on the searc...h for lost cities. To reach each city, the players must travel a separate path nine steps long. On a player?s turn, he plays a card and moves one of his adventurers or his researcher. The color of the card played determines which path the figure moves on. The player should try to play a card of low value, because when the player wants to move this adventurer again, he must play a card of equal or higher value. Each player must send his adventurers on different paths - no two from the same player on athe same path. A player may send all his adventurers to search, but need not. The goal is it to get one?s adventurers as far as possible along the paths they travel since the first steps of a path score minus points. Only the later steps on a path score positive points. At the end of the game, the winner is the player who earned the most points. Artifacts, which adventurers can collect along the way, also earn the player?s points toward a possible victory. Also, the researcher (the larger figure) is more valuable than the adventurers: during the scoring at the end, the player doubles its points, making it imperative to move it as far along its path as possible.

Th...e latest cooperative publishing effort from Friedemann Friese and Rio Grande Games, removes the crayon aspect from network building in the original edition while retaining the fluctuating commodities market like McMulti and an auction round intensity reminiscent of The Princes of Florence. The object of Power Grid is to supply the most cities with power when someone's network gains a predetermined size. In this New edition, players mark pre-existing routes between cities for connection, and then bid against each other to purchase the power plants that they use to power their cities. However, as plants are purchased, Newer more efficient plants become available, so by merely purchasing you're potentially allowing others access to superior equipment.

No Assembly Required No Batteries Required In Race for the Galaxy from Rio Grande Games, players build galactic civilizations usin...g game cards that represent worlds or technical and social developments. Each round consists of one or more of five possible phases. In each round, each player secretly and simultaneously chooses one of seven different action cards and then reveals it. Only the selected phases occur. For these phases, every player performs the phases action, while the selecting player(s) also get a bonus for that phase. For example, if at least one player chooses the Develop action, then the Develop phase will occur; otherwise it is skipped. In it, each player may simultaneously select a development from his hand of cards to build. After revealing the cards, each player adds his development to his tableau of cards on the table and then discards cards from his hand equal to its cost. Each player who chose Develop discards one card fewer as his bonus. Explore allows a player to draw cards and select which of them to add to his hand. Settle allows a player to place a world in his tableau. Some worlds produce goods, represented by face down cards, when Produce is selected. These goods can be discarded for victory points or sold to add cards to the players hand by selecting Consume. With cards, players can settle new worlds and build more developments, gaining both victory points and card powers that provide advantages in certain phases. The player who best manages his cards, phase and bonus selections, and card powers to build the greatest space empire, wins. The winner is the player with the most victory points.

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

The search for energy crystals continues without respite throughout the universe! The Merchant guild is ready to pay outrageous am...ounts of money, and all the Seekers roam about to find them. Breaking news! The surface of the "forgotten planet" on the edge of the galaxy is full of them. In a few days, a new gold race will begin, with men replaced by robots that search, explore and fight to control the precious mineral! The Forgotten Planet is a tile-laying management game in which tiles represent safe areas on a planetary surface on which robots walk and take other actions. These tiles also accumulate energy from the sun, then conduct it to robots, giving them (and the player) more actions if they absorb enough energy - so building and maintaining ownership of these tiles is fundamental in the game strategy. Players and robots use this energy to build new bases, discover mines, build walls to keep out other robots, push those same walls out of the way, produce more robots and much more. Read More

Your goal in NER is to have more assets than other players at game end, as determined by cash in hand, cost of businesses owned, special routes completed and state subsidies acquired.<br /><br />The game lasts at most 16 rounds. Each round players forecast the upcoming economic condition - depression, normal or prosperity - for a future turn, then take care of any events that occur, such as Improved Bridge Building Techniques that allow players to build across estuaries or Sheep Boom Goes Bust which represents the decreased demand for wool from New England farmers as the century progressed. Four of the first five events are fixed and represent historical activities, while the other events - including devastating floods, snow, and an improved business climate - are randomized into a face-down deck. Players then each draft a business or action card, with the option to play it immediately (thereby gaining a free action) if they choose to pay the cost.<br /><br />If all mail routes, state subsidies and special routes are claimed by the end of any round, the game ends at that point; otherwise the game ends after round 16, with the richest player winning New England Rails. 2-5 Players Read More

In their turn, players may take and play a character from the 'El Presidente' board: the worker, dancer, attorney, warden, revolutionist or musician. They all have different effects. The worker acts as a warehouse; all your goods are safe this turn. The revolutionist gives you one victory point, the musician two money. The player with the dancer card becomes start player.With the attorney a player may use a building even when his supervisor is not on the row or column of this building. The warden may change two adjacent ships in position. There is a mule card that is used when playing with less than four players; this card cannot be chosen. When all players have chosen a card, the car of the president moves to the position of the remaining card; remember, there are five cards that each turn are shuffled and randomly placed in the window of this board.Under each card on the board are symbols that come into effect when the car of the president stops here. The first makes all law proposals go into effect; the second makes it possible to move the supervisor anywhere on a player board.

It adds 26 new Kingdom cards to Dominion. Its central theme is your next turn; there are cards that do something this turn and next, cards that set up your next turn, and other ways to step outside of the bounds of a normal turn. Dominion: Seaside is an expansion to both Dominion and Dominion: Intrigue. As such, it does not contain material for a complete game. Specifically, it does not include the Treasure, Victory, Curse, or Trash cards. Thus, you will need either the base game or Intrigue to play with this expansion and have experience playing Dominion with either of the first two games. It is designed to work with either or both of these sets, and any future expansions that may be published. Read More
