Area 1851 Board Game

Area 1851 Board Game

Aliens from a distant world have landed, keen on trading their interstellar gadgets for what we humans see as mundane junk. You are one of the area's most forward thinking Tinkerers and you're obsessed with incorporating the Aliens new technology with the items of the Settlers and Indian tribes. You'll need to send out your assistants to scavenge for parts, create some of the strangest devices you ever did see and earn yourself some reputation.

Each turn players will have to deal with and negotiate random events in the area, then continue the turn under those circumstances by drawing Tinker cards to fill their hand up to five cards, followed up by rolling dice to determine their resources for that turn. Players then spend those resources to build new Gadgets or augment their existing Gadgets with Modifications. These Gadgets and Modifications can then be delivered to the townsfolk for Reputation. In addition players can choose to scrap cards from their hand and pull them out of circulation. To assist them in their endeavor to build the best contraptions in the land, players will utilize three Assistants that they are granted one at a time as play progresses. You'll need to activate the Assistants in order to provide bonuses from various locations around town.

Players also have the opportunity to show their worthiness by picking up new Feat cards during their turn. Completing these Feats provide a nice boost in Reputation either during or at the end of the game. Since it's hard to keep all your thoughts in one place as a Tinkerer, players end the turn by passing their hands around the table to a neighbor. The player that has earned the most Reputation from delivering Gadgets and accomplishing Feats wins!

Colossal Cave Board Game

Colossal Cave Board Game

Somewhere nearby is Colossal Cave, where it is rumored that others have found fortunes in treasure and gold. Magic, too, is said to work in the cave. But beware! Some who enter are never seen again...

A board game adaptation of the classic text adventure "Colossal Cave Adventure". The basic mechanic is "draw one, play one"; there is also a gameboard depicting a simplified map of the cave (14 rooms). Cards represent items, treasures, actions, and "reactions"; you're generally not allowed to play an item or treasure card unless your player token is in a specific room on the map. For example, the Rare Coins are not playable anywhere except in the Hall of the Mountain King. After you play a treasure, you must get it safely back to the surface, where you can deposit it in the Well House.

The winner is the first player to deposit three treasures in the Well House. Depending on the number of players and their willingness to stymie each other from the beginning, a game can last anywhere from 20 to 90 minutes.

The first one to forge four items from a list of the King's favorite weapons and trinkets will be honored as First Among Crafters and Smiths. But watch out, because the other crafters and smiths will try to outdo you at every opportunity. Are you ready to forge your destiny?

    In King's Forge, players are craftsmen and craftswomen seeking to become the favorite of the King. A variety of dice represent the raw materials (metal, wood, gems, and enchantment) and those same dice can be used to gather new dice and purchase roll-modifiers, or saved and rolled in an attempt to meet the requirements to craft the items on the King's list. An early lead is not a sure path to victory and other players will out-maneuver and out-build you whenever possible. Careful dice management, advance planning, fierce competition, and nail-biting luck will carry you to winner's circle.
