As one of the two most powerful traders in the city of Rajasthan, you must trade, sell, and barter your way to the top of the marketplace. Jaipur is a fast paced two-player card game from Gameworks that requires quick thinking, luck, and patience. On any player’s turn, it’s their decision to take or sell cards. Taking cards involves choosing between camels, cards from market, and swapping cards between your hand and market. If players choose to sell, they sell only one type of good per turn and they can get any amount of chips possible from that. The player with the most chips at the end of the game wins.
Forbidden Island is a gorgeous cooperative board game where players work together to try to keep the Island from sinking. Tiles progressively sink as they are stepped on, sinking the board entirely. Players collect treasures and explore the island as much as they can before the Forbidden Island is lost forever. With an abundance of random scenarios and game variations, it’s a beautiful and memorable game with a lot of replayability.
As a symbol of peace, the Chinese Emperor gifted the Japanese Emperor a giant panda bear. The Japanese Emperor tasked his esteemed court to care for the panda and tend to its bamboo garden. In this gorgeous game known for its design and artistry, players must balance gardening and feeding the panda during the Imperial dynasty of Japan. Players must cultivate lands, irrigate, and grow either green, yellow, or pink bamboo and feed the court panda. Depending on how many players there are, 7 to 9 objectives must be completed for the game to end. The player with the highest point total from their completed objectives wins.
