Star Realms
List Price: $14.95
Our Price: $14.95

Forge your own Star Realms. Build up your military through shipping and trade, then use your mighty fleet of warships to protect what's yours and take what isn't!

Designed by Magic: The Gathering hall of famers Darwin Kastle and Rob Dougherty, Star Realms combines the fun of deckbuilding games with the interactivity of trading car game-style combat. As you play use trade to add new ships and bases to your deck. When played, those ships and bases generate powerful effects, additional trade and combat to attack your opponent and their bases. If you reduce your opponent's score to zero, you win!

This deck is a complete 2-player game containing rules and 128 cards. To expand for more players, simply use an additional deck for each 1 - 2 additional players.
Pengoloo
Our Price: $27.50

From the publisher:

A fun new way to stretch the mind, the Pengoloo Game from Blue Orange Games tests kids memory as they race to match colored eggs and collect penguin pals to win. In the Pengoloo Game, players must first put an egg in each penguin and mix them up in the center and pass out iceberg scoreboards. To start playing the Pengoloo Game, the youngest player rolls the 2 multi-colored die and then has 2 tries to find eggs under the penguins that match one or both colors on the die. If a player finds one matching egg, he or she places the penguin by their iceberg; and if the player finds both matching eggs, he or she places both penguins by their iceberg and plays again. Watch out - finding eggs in the Pengoloo Game is trickier than it sounds since you have to remember their locations. The first player to collect 6 penguins wins the game! The Pengoloo Game from Blue Orange Games includes 12 penguins, 12 colored eggs, 4 iceberg scoring pads, and 2 colored die. For 2 to 6 players.

Warning: Choking Hazard. Small Parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

Quarto
Price $29.95
currently unavailable

Quarto has been among the best selling two-player games in our stores for the past several years. This is another game which is nice to touch and see. The rules are quickly taught. One of our staffers is so good at this game, we've occasionally offered a prize to the customer who can beat him in front of witnesses -- a safe offer.

The twist to the game is that your opponent gets to pick the piece that you must place during your turn, and vice versa! The winner is the one to place the fourth-in-a-row with any one feature in common. Each piece is a wooden block which is either cylindrical or square; tall or short; light or dark; and hollow or solid. A "Quarto" is four-in-a-row with any one of these qualities in common, e.g. all cylindrical or all hollow or all dark. Don't overlook height! You can win with four short pieces in a row, regardless of color, shape, or solidity.

Despite the longish description here, Quarto is actually quite simple to learn, very interesting to play, and nice to see and touch.
