About the event

Unboxing Thursdays we open, learn, and play games as we add them to our library.

This Thursday we are playing and learning SiliconVania & Forever Home!

SiliconVania: 7.3

In SiliconVania, players bid on building tiles and multi-use specialists that provide either one-time bonuses or end-of-game scoring. Players take the building tiles they win, and place them in their 4x4 city grids, juggling different scoring opportunities, and collecting vampire and pet meeples that are looking for places to live! Each round you:

Bid on a pair of building tiles to add to your grid. Be careful as once they're down, they're hard to move.

Bid a specialist card for its ability and to get a new specialist card. Cards with stronger bids have weaker abilities, and vice versa.

Commit a specialist card for its scoring condition, earning points, but revealing to your opponents which kinds of buildings you really need. The game ends after eight rounds, at which time everyone's city grid will be full. You score points for having each of the seven building types, a wide network of blood banks, and proper housing for the vampire meeples your specialists bring to town. The vampires also want to make sure all this technological advancement doesn't destroy the biodiversity of their home, so you get points for having a variety of animals and animal meeples on your tiles.

Forever Home: 7.6

Welcome to Forever Home, the puzzly pattern-building game about second chances for shelter dogs.

Using a combination of tile placement, set collection, and drafting, you and your friends take on the role of shelter workers. Take it in turn to bring dogs into your shelter, complete training cards, and match pups up with new families. You'll be competing for valuable shelter commendations, as well as gaining a reputation for training and rehoming the dogs in your care. At the end of the game, the shelter worker with the most reputation wins!

Featuring quick and simple turns; a unique solo mode; and a second advanced side to the player board, Forever Home is a replayable, easy-to-love abstract game.

Join us Thursday, December 7th at 6:00 pm for our Unboxing Thursday Event. See ya soon!
