support the idea of incorporating board-games into your personal life as well
as in the classroom. As such, we support
and participate in a local board-gaming group.
Any and all board-game enthusiasts are welcome to join the Game Nights that
are held every first and third Friday night of the month. As part of our gaming group initiative, we
also recommend history centric games that are fun to play each week to all of
our followers. The selected games receive
our “Game of the Week” distinction.
Recommended games are a mix of cooperative, card games, as well Euro
Yedo: Rule From the Shadows, Pandasaurus Games
Japan, 1605 Hidetada
Tokugawa has succeeded his father as the new Shogun, ruling from the great city
of Edo (a.k.a. Yedo), the city known in present times as Tokyo. Players assume
the roles of Clan Elders in the city of Edo during the early years of the
Tokugawa Shogunate. The object of the game is to amass Prestige Points, mainly
by completing missions. To do so, players must gather the necessary assets and
most importantly outfox their opponents and prevent them from completing their
missions. It's all up to you but be careful to make the right choices, for in
Yedo, eternal glory and painful disgrace are two sides of the same coin.
One Night Ultimate Werewolf, Bezier Games
One Night Ultimate
Werewolf is a fast-paced game where everyone gets to be a different role. In
the course of only one night and the following morning, the players will
determine who among them is a werewolf...hopefully. One Night Ultimate Werewolf
is a microgame of the party game Ultimate Werewolf that doesn't need a moderator.
There's no elimination, and each game lasts about 10 minutes.
1969 Game, Coffee Haus Games
The Space Race has
begun! In 1969, this prestige contest will decide who is the world leader--who
will win? The U.S.A.? The U.S.S.R.? Or a nation of the old Europe perhaps? Who
will be able to build the most technologically advanced rocket and bring Man to
the Moon without crashing? Will you be able to defend your space program from
the saboteurs sent from the other world powers
Destination Hogwarts, RTL Games
