Amazon’s had a ton of good board game deals lately, but if you’ve still got room on your shelf, 7 Wonders is well worth picking up for $24, within about a dollar of an all-time low. From Board Game Geek, where it’s a top 40 game: You are the leader of one of the 7 great cities of the Ancient World. Gather resources, develop commercial routes, and affirm your military supremacy. Build your city and erect an architectural wonder which will transcend future times. 7 Wonders lasts three ages. In each age, players receive seven cards from a particular deck, choose one of those cards, then pass the remainder to an adjacent player. Players reveal their cards simultaneously, paying resources if needed or collecting resources or interacting with other players in various ways. (Players have individual boards with special powers on which to organize their cards, and the boards are double-sided).

Survive the Trenches With Your Friends In The Grizzled Cooperative Card Game

Unlike most of the card and board games in your game cabinet, The Grizzled is cooperative, meaning everyone’s either going to win or lose together. In The Grizzled, players are tasked with surviving the trenches of WWI until Armistice. The mission leader will decide the difficulty of each round as players try to avoid matching the identical symbols or environments on a card. Soldiers will also face other hardships during the war that add to the difficulty. If one of your friends falls in the trenches, your entire group fails. Play together. Survive together. Win together. Amazon’s marked it down to an all-time low $14, but it could sell out at any time, so don’t let the other buyers outflank you. $14 From amazon 1962 purchased by readersGizmodo Media Group may get a commission READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
