Ice Cool

“The lunch break is almost there and all of the young penguins would finally get the fish they’ve been craving. However, some rascals think they are quick enough to snatch some of the fish before the lunch break starts, but they have forgotten one thing – the Hall Monitor! Each school day one of the penguins is designated to watch over the school, and this is his moment to shine – for each rascal penguin he catches he would get additional fish!” This is a great dexterity game for 2 to 4 players.

 

Spyfall 2

Spyfall is played over several rounds, and at the start of each round all players receive cards showing the same location — except that one player receives a card that says ‘Spy’ instead of the location. Players then start asking each other questions — ‘Why are you dressed so strangely?’ or ‘When was the last time we got a payday?’ or anything else you can come up with — trying to guess who among them is the spy. The spy doesn't know where he is, so he has to listen carefully. When it's his time to answer, he'd better create a good story!” This is a fun bluffing game for up to 12 players.

 

Pandemic Legacy: Season 2

“The world almost ended seventy-one years ago. A virulent plague came out of nowhere and ravaged the world. For three generations, small groups of survivors have struggled to keep the world alive. Operating from floating stations known as “havens,” they have maintained a loose network of the largest cities by delivering supplies to the mainland. But their efforts are no longer enough. Cities are falling off the grid and supplies are running low. The world needs a group of heroes to emerge and lead it through this crisis. In Pandemic Legacy: Season 2, this task has fallen to you.”

 

2 to 4 Players, 13 and up
