New from Rio Grande!

Releasing in December!

Monster Factory
$ 29.95 SRP

In Monster Factory, the players take turns drawing and placing tiles, either adding to their own monsters or to those of their opponents. The goal is to make monsters that are big, but not so big that they go unfinished.

Spin Monkeys
$ 39.95 SRP

In Spin Monkeys, you are a monkey in the jungle when one day a wayward carnival makes a stop. You and your fellow monkeys jump in the bumper cars and away you go. You have no idea why there is fruit all over the arena floor, but you aim to grab as much of it for yourself as possible!

The Doge Ship
$ 49.95 SRP

In The Doge Ship, the players play the role of the most skilled shipbuilders of Venice who are called by the Doge to cooperate on the construction of the new ship. Each player has to build parts of the Ship in order to earn victory points, but also Gondolas to get money, and Barriers for the protection of the shipyard and the city. The task is not easy: At the beginning of each round, the cost of the actions might change, as well as the demands of the Doge. When the construction of the ship is finished, only one will be the winner and will gain the favour of the Doge.

In this game players have to manage their five actions per round competing with other players on these available. Players can work on a part of the Doge Ship to gain VP, on Gondolas to make money, or on Barriers to protect Venice from High Water effects and save their shipyard. Manage money

Unexpected Treasures
$ 19.95 SRP

In Unexpected Treasures – a new edition of the 2002 release Fundstücke – you are on a mission to collect old furniture from a bulk waste collection site and turn a profit by selling those pieces to paying customers. It's first come, first served. What's more, you are able to take only a few items home at a time – and you have to be wary of a thief who is out on the prowl just waiting to steal your collected goods from your home.

Antike Duellum
$ 34.95 SRP

Antike Duellum – previewed at Spiel 2011 under the name Casus Belli – is a two-player strategy game based on modified rules from Mac Gerdts' Antike. The game includes two scenarios: Punic Wars (Rome vs. Carthago) on one side of the board, and Persian Wars (Greeks vs. Persians) on the other. The goal of the game is to be the first to gain nine ancient personages (Kings, Scholars, Generals, Citizens, Navigators).

$ 54.95 SRP

In Myrmes, originally shown under the name ANTerpryse, players control ant colonies and use their ants to explore the land (leaving pheromones in their wake); harvest "crops" like stone, earth and aphids; fight with other ants; complete requests from the Queen; birth new ants; and otherwise dominate their tiny patch of dirt, all in a quest to score points and prove that they belong at the top of the heap, er, anthill. After three seasons of scrabbling and foraging, each ant colony faces a harsh winter that will test its colonial strength.
