Super Munchkin
Price $24.95

Munchkin has parodied the classic dungeon, the kung-fu warrior, the space epic, and the creatures of the night. Now, it's the superheroes turn!

Be a Mutant, an Exotic, a Mystic, or a Techno. The higher your level, the more powers you can have. Battle dastardly masterminds, devastating monsters, and invading aliens from the next dimension - from the wimpy Triplicate Twit all the way up to Big Ol' Planet Eater Guy himself - and take their stuff! With the Aura Helmet, the Telezapinator, and the (jet-powered) Pogo Stick, no foe can stand before you.

Price $24.95

Go down into the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run.

This stand-alone card game captures the dungeon experience. All you have to do is kill monsters and grab magic items. And what magic items! Don the Horny Helmet or the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm, or maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment.

Fast-paced and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group into hysteria. And, while they're laughing, you can steal their stuff.
Contents: 168 cards, rules sheet, and sturdy set-up box

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.

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.

Save Doctor Lucky
Price $29.95

A funny sequel to the extremely popular Kill Doctor Lucky, reverses the game on it's ear. Instead of trying to kill Doctor Lucky and hope no one sees you doing the diabolical dead, you need to be witnessed by other players to your heroism when
saving the ole doctor!

"A cold night in the Atlantic.
 An errant iceberg, a titanic ship, and one very lucky old man.
Doctor Lucky is a charismatic and well-respected philanthropist with a heart of gold. Of course, you secretly hate the old bastard, and you're probably going to kill him someday. But killing him aboard a sinking ship would be pointless.
So you've decided to his life instead, and do it while someone else looking. That way, even if you go down with the ship, you'll at least go down in history.
And isn't that what life is all about?"
