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?"

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