Well Good Day Blogger it's been awhile! Board Game Pre-Orders

Well Good Day Blogger it's been awhile!

I wish I had more time to write, but there is always something else to do, books to read, board games to demo, new drinks to make, customers to help...etc.

Well today we are going to see if we can spend a little bit on time give some love back to our blog.

Today is a board game pre-order day!  So these are some of the new games we are looking at bring into the store.  Now seeing that we do not have the games in the store right now, I am just going to post the images and the game description.

Lets start with Terra.

Terra is a party/trivia game of general geographic information by Friedemann Friese, where being close counts.
How long is the Golden Gate Bridge? Where has “evidence" of the Yeti been found? How many sculptures are on Easter Island?
It‘s likely that you don‘t know any of these facts. But you might have a rough idea, and that‘s good enough, because Terra is the party game where being close counts. And if you have absolutely no idea what the answer is? Take advantage of your friends who do know!

Terra is a redesign of Friedemann’s 2009 SDJ-nominated Fauna, which had similar mechanics, but was specific to animals. Terra changes the subject matter to general geographic information, includes a brand new Imperial measurements map side (retaining the Metric map side for gamers outside the US), has 300 topics (with three categories of questions) on oversized cards, and simplified scoring. Terra plays in 45 minutes for 2-6 players.


One Night Ultimate Vampire

No moderator, no elimination, no werewolves.

In One Night Ultimate Vampire, the sun has just set, and vampires have descended on your sleepy little town, slowly turning the villagers into even more vampires. Fortunately, the village has several residents with special powers, with most willing to help eliminate this fanged menace!

One Night Ultimate Vampire is a fast game for 3-10 players in which everyone gets a role: The nefarious Vampire, the well-meaning Cupid, the sneaky Assassin, or others, each with a special ability. In the course of a single evening, your village will decide who among them is a vampire...because all it takes is finding one vampire to win!

One Night Ultimate Vampire can be combined with One Night Ultimate Werewolf or One Night Ultimate Werewolf Daybreak or both games.



Funemployed is a card-based party game in which everyone's trying to become employed. Apply for real jobs, like astronaut, lawyer or priest, with unreal qualifications, such as a dragon, the ability to speak panda, or a DeLorean. In the game, each player uses his qualifications to convince the other players that he's the best qualified for a job. To do this, players tell the story of why their qualifications make them the best fit for a job by role-playing and acting like they are on an interview. Find innovative ways to use your qualifications and become the most "funemployed" player at the table!

These guys are Hilarious!  Check out the bearded fellow at the start of the video!

Yes it is almost that time when it will be all this STAR WARS!  Seriously this game looks amazing, like all the other ones they have released and 170 plastic miniatures!!

Star Wars™: Rebellion

"The more you tighten your grasp, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers."
-Leia Organa

Star Wars™: Rebellion is a board game of epic conflict between the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance for two to four players!
Experience the Galactic Civil War like never before. In Rebellion, you control the entire Galactic Empire or the fledgling Rebel Alliance. You must command starships, account for troop movements, and rally systems to your cause. Featuring more than 150 plastic miniatures and two game boards that account for thirty-two of the Star Wars galaxy's most notable systems, Rebellion features a scope that is as large and sweeping as any Star Wars game before it.
Yet for all its grandiosity, Rebellion remains intensely personal, cinematic, and heroic. As much as your success depends upon the strength of your starships, vehicles, and troops, it depends upon the individual efforts of such notable characters as Leia Organa, Mon Mothma, Grand Moff Tarkin, and Emperor Palpatine. As civil war spreads throughout the galaxy, these leaders are invaluable to your efforts, and the secret missions they attempt will evoke many of the most inspiring moments from the classic trilogy. You might send Luke Skywalker to receive Jedi training on Dagobah or have Darth Vader spring a trap that freezes Han Solo in carbonite!

Contents include:
- 1 game board (split in 2 halves)
- 170 plastic miniatures
- 25 leaders (with stands)
- 10 custom dice
- Over 170 cards
- 1 Learn to Play Booklet
- 1 Rules Reference


Swords will clash with the Breakers of Shadow booster set! Sharpen your blades and get ready to Duel with brand new Deck themes and the revival of a legend to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME!

Buster Blader is back as Buster Blader, the Destruction Swordmaster, with a mighty band of new support cards that make this iconic monster stronger than ever before! In addition to this legendary warrior, Breakers of Shadow also introduces exciting new Deck themes and strategies! The Shiranui use the strength of Samurai spirit warriors to power you through Duels, while Twilight Ninjas rely on speed and numbers to overwhelm your foes. Opponents will feel the power of the Dinomists, steam-powered Pendulum dinosaurs that can land a heavy hit when you least expect it.

New cards for existing themes are also included like Melodious, Goyo, Majespecter, Odd-Eyes, Performapal, Magicians, and more, headlined by over a dozen new Extra Deck monsters! Many cards in this set will have excellent synergy with the newly released Master of Pendulum Structure Deck. Also, Duelists can now look forward to getting at least 1 foil card in every booster pack!

The Breakers of Shadow booster set contains 100 cards:
48 Commons
20 Rares
14 Super Rares
10 Ultra Rares
8 Secret Rares


Oh man! Oh Man this is amazing Kittens in a Blender has an expansion!!  More kittens more blending and extra flavours!  

More Kittens in a Blender

This expansion adds thirty-two unique kittens to the game in two new groups, allowing for play with up to six players (or teams). It also has color-reminder cards, and flavors.

Flavors add a new dimension to the strategic play of Kittens in a Blender. If you are having trouble rescuing your kittens, you really really can't keep them out of the blender, throw some vanilla extract or strawberries into the mix and make a smoothie! It's a new way to score points toward victory, and now other players have to think long and hard before sending too many of your kittens toward the evil blender.


MTG is how we got started selling board games in the store(I know it is a card game but you know what I mean!)

MTG Shadows Over Innistrad Booter Boxes
We also have the new Duel decks coming in February!

Holy Warriors Unite Against the Unquiet Dead

A divine mission has once again united the Humans, Spirits, and Angels of Innistrad. Together, these protectors will stand against the shadows, fighting for humanity's salvation.

Evil rules the night. Shambling hordes of the dead roam free, their cemetery gates in ruins, as powerful Demons soar overhead. The fate of the living remains shrouded in darkness.

Will you defend hope or snuff it out?
