About the event

As our collection is now over 1300 board games we felt the need to create another day during the week that we are able to teach games from our collection.

This allows us to learn more about what we have on our shelf as well as add another day for teaching.

Enders Game Battle School: 5.6

Ender's Game Battle School pits two players against each other in the zero gravity arena of the International Fleet's Battle School, with one player commanding Ender Wiggin's Dragon Team and another player commanding Bonzo Madrid and the Salamander Team. Commander cards for Wiggin and Bonzo come with special abilities, some that help the whole team, and some that help only the commander. Each player moves his team around a zero gravity arena in an attempt to capture the other team's gates or to freeze members of the opposing team with their laser-light guns. The player who first captures all of his opponent's gates or freezes the opposing commander wins.

That Old Wallpaper: 6.3

In That Old Wallpaper, you attempt to recover the wall of a house with wallpaper, matching as many patterns as you can.

In the game, a number of locations are available where wallpaper cards will come up for grabs. Each turn, players simultaneously choose a location, and if they're the only one to pick a location, they get the card or cards in that location. If you choose the same location as someone else, each of you receives a "hazy memory" card that features a wallpaper pattern along only one edge instead of along all four edges.

When you receive regular wallpaper cards, you must add them to your other played cards immediately, ideally matching the pattern halves to create a complete pattern. Patterns come in four colors, with each color having two sizes. A wild pattern is also available, which seems kind of weird, but so be it. To end a turn, deal a new wallpaper card to each location, which means that some locations will likely have more cards than others ones.

At the game's end, use your hazy memory cards to complete patterns on the edge of your wallpaper, then score for each color of the pattern. The score of a pattern is the number of large symbols of that color multiplied by the number of small symbols, so if you don't have at least one large and small symbol, you score nothing for that color!

Join us as we dive into the deep end of our Board Game Collection on Table Top Tuesdays this Tuesday at 6 pm.

See ya soon!
