September 2015 Games of the Week

By Margaret Duncan, Ed.D.

The Histocrats 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 style games.

Lanterns, Renegade Game Studios
The harvest is in, and now it's time to celebrate! Lanterns: The Harvest Festival is a tile-- placement game set in imperial China. Place tiles, adorn the palace lake, and dedicate lanterns in this fast paced board game. Players act as artisans decorating the palace lake with floating lanterns. The artisan who earns the most honor before the festival arrives wins the game.

Dungeon Deep
Work with and against other players as you battle through the dungeon in this intriguing card game. Choose your Hero Deck and Henchmen Deck and shuffle them together to form your adventuring party. Use bluffing and strategy to outsmart other players and to collect the most fame, items, and treasure! Enemies you defeat drop loot that you can use to advance in power!

BrewCrafters Cardgame, Dice Hate Me Games
In Brew Crafters: The Travel Card Game, you have opened your own brewery and are competing with other brewers in town to be named the Brew Crafter of your city. You will build your brewery by installing equipment and hiring workers, and then get to work brewing your beer! The player that earns the most reputation as the city's best brewer will win! Brew Crafters: The Travel Card Game is based on the Dice Hate Me Games release Brew Crafters.

Retro Loonacy, Looney Labs
Retro Loonacy is a neato, rapid-fire game where players race to be the first to empty their hand by matching one of two images with the images on the open piles in front of them. Retro Loonacy has an out-of-sight design, featuring nostalgic images of times gone by. It's easy enough to teach in a single sentence, and so addictive you can't play just one game. Speed of the hand and luck of the draw determine the winner in this frenzied free-for-all! It's a gas!
