If your interested in a particular board game you have not played before or would like to relax and bring a board game with you to try out with more people you are more than welcome.
This weeks theme will be Land grab style games, Settlers of Catan, Carcasonne and Ticket to Ride.
Settlers of Catan is an award winning and very popular board game that was released in 1995. You play as a settler on the Island of Catan, the first player to gain 10 victory points wins the game.
Victory points come from having the largest road, biggest army or from development cards you buy with resources generated by the land you settle!
Carcasonne is another award winning 2-5 player game where players take and places a tiles to create roads, cities, farmland. monestarys and use small "meeples" to claim these areas for themselves.
As you claim areas you receive points and reclaim your meeple for further use.
The game ends when all the tiles have been placed and points have been totaled!
Last but not least is Ticket to Ride, In ticket to ride you collect and play matching train cars to claim railway routes connecting cities.
The longer the route the more points you earn, you also can get points by connecting cities listed on your "Destination Tickets"
The game ends when all players have two or fewer rail cars, you then count up your points and determine a winner!
Each of these games are sized to 2-5 players and take about an hour to an hour and a half from start to finish.
Come out and join in the fun! Also our Demo shelf is always available if anyone wants to try a different board game. We are open to suggestions on themes or board games you would like to see!
