In The Quacks of Quedlinburg Board Game, each of the player charlatans (‘Quacksalber’ in German) makes their own secret brew, drawing ingredients from the shared supply bag to do this. Take care with what you draw, though, for a pinch too many peas will spoil the whole mixture. If you stop in time to cook only the small portion you have, maybe you can then use the income you earn from selling this creation to buy more valuable ingredients in the future, making your next potion even better to bring in many points.
The Quacks of Quedlinburg Herb Witches Expansion allows up to five players to compete at the same time, with this expansion also including more ingredient books, a new ‘fool’s herb’, and the introduction of herbal witches to add more variety.
Word has since spread far beyond the city boundaries of the alchemists of Quedlinburg. Their healing arts are as famous as they are infamous. People come from far and wide to have their at times exotic conditions treated by a ‘professional.’ Chicken eyes, a witch’s hump, and even vampirism (often misdiagnosed as polymorphous light eruption) are just a few of their ailments. The very best from among their ranks are needed: the alchemists of Quedlinburg take on the most complex cases in quack medicine. They use elaborate equipment to distill essences to relieve their patients’ suffering. Distilling earns players valuable bonuses and special functions that yield additional advantages as the game progresses. The Quacks of Quedlinburg Alchemists Expansion includes 20 new fortune teller cards and two new ingredient books for the locoweed.

In the PARKS Board Game, players will take on the role of two hikers as they trek different trails across four seasons. While on the trail, these hikers will take actions and collect memories of the places your hikers visit. These memories are represented by various resource tokens like mountains, forests, and wildlife. Collecting these memories in sets will allow players to trade them in to visit a National Park at the end of each hike.
Each trail represents one season of the year, and each season, the trails will change and grow steadily longer. The trails, represented by tiles, get shuffled in between each season and laid out anew for the next round. Resources can be tough to come by especially when someone is at the place you’re trying to reach! Campfires allow you to share a space and time with other hikers. Canteens and Gear can also be used to improve your access to resources through the game. Welcome to PARKS!

Race to create your town to the best of your ability as the conditions keep changing. Just completing the town is easy enough, but quickly satisfying all the conditions is enough to make your brain go crazy. From kids to adults, Nine Tiles Panic is a speedy and exciting puzzle game for everyone!
The Nine Tiles Panic board game is the follow-on game of the game ‘Nine Tiles’, an Oink Game that is only available in Japan. Both games are created by the same authors. ‘Nine Tiles’ also is a speedy puzzle game, but the new ‘Nine Tiles Panic’ adds decision making and tactics to the game, so that you can experience a totally new kind of fun game play.
Each player gets one of these tile sets, which consists of nine different tiles. The fronts and backs of the tiles show different road parts of your city. While playing you can flip and turn the tiles as you like. The only important things are that you create a city which is exactly 3×3 tiles big and that you connect the roads. Completing such a city is rather easy…
But these condition cards make everything a little more difficult. In each round you draw three condition cards randomly and in the end everyone gets points according to how well you satisfied the conditions. The points you will get, depend on the order of successfully satisfied condition cards. You can choose if you want to use the full capacity of your brain and fulfil all three conditions or if you want to focus on one of them and be the first player to fulfil it. It might me a good idea to focus on a condition nobody might me interested in. Amongst the condition cards you will find really difficult ones as well!
Be careful! It can be dangerous to think about a solution too long! The first player that finishes their city can turn the hour glass and from that point on everyone has only 90 seconds left to finish theirs. Players who can’t finish their city in that time, won’t get any points! If two or more players get the same amount of points for one condition card, the player who was quicker wins. This is why it is very important to be as quick as possible. You can definitely try to fully use the 90 seconds for completing a task perfectly as well… this is where opinions differ.
A mysterious case involving a MacGuffin…the investigators are ready to report their prime suspects and are poised to arrest the criminal. However, behind the scenes the Phantom is pulling away.

While being wary of the Phantom, speculate about and discover just who the criminal really is. This quick, mystery card game is packed full of reasoning and fun. Let the battle of wits begin!
In Tricks and the Phantom, every player is an investigator in a truely mysterious case. You have to find the criminal which has one of many professions, such as politician, yakuza or detective. If you succeed and find the lawbreaker, you are rewarded with winning points. Normally the culprit is always the card with the highest number, but there are some exceptions: ‘If someone played a 10, then this card is the criminal’, ‘If all other players played a card lower than 5, then this card is the criminal’ and such are conditions that change the outcome of a round! The only thing you know is, who played which card colour. Through knowing this, you can analyse and predict the actions of the others and finally find the criminal!
However, there is another role, who will take your winning points away, if you suspect him – the phantom! the investigator who plays this card wants to mock you and make you think he played the criminal card. Can you read their intentions, avoid suspecting the phantom and finally find the real culprit?

The game ends when all tiles are turned face-up and until then you have to try to collect as many trios of consecutive numbers as possible. You also need to collect a trio of the same number, a so-called ‘fuel-set’, or you won’t be able to go back to Earth again…
As the number of tiles you can collect hidden is restricted and since there are many more No.7-tiles than tiles with other numbers, the game becomes very exciting!
