New from Tasty Minstrel Games! Gold West, Orléans, Dungeon of Fortune and more!

Coming in July!
$59.95 SRP

In the city of Orléans and the area of the Loire, you can take trade trips to other cities to acquire coveted goods and build trading posts. You need followers and their abilities to expand your dominance by putting them to work as traders, builders, and scientists. Knights expand your scope of action and secure your mercantile expeditions. Craftsmen build trading stations and tools to facilitate work. Scholars make progress in science, and last but not least it cannot hurt to get active in monasteries since with monks on your side you are much less likely to fall prey to fate.

In Orléans, you will always want to take more actions than possible, and there are many paths to victory. The challenge is to combine all elements as best as possible with regard to your strategy in order to gain supremacy.

Gold West
$59.95 SRP

In Gold West, players compete as prospectors building their mining empires while vying over the precious metals of the frontier. In a delicate balance of resource management and area control, players must plan their building strategies while carefully managing their supply tracks to refine the right resources at the most opportune times. Stay a step ahead of the competition and you could lead the West into the Golden Age.

Gold West is a delicate balance of resource management and area control where the goal is to accumulate the most victory points through clever management of your growing mining empire. There are five resources in the game: the metals Copper, Silver, and Gold are used to acquire victory points in a variety of ways, while Timber and Stone are building materials used to build camps and settlements on the board to collect more resources and influence the landscape.

Carefully manage your supply tracks and refine the right resources at the right times to keep a step ahead of the competition!

Dungeon of Fortune
$24.95 SRP

You and your fellow adventurers stand at the entrance to a dangerous dungeon full of treasure. Will you brave Goblins, Skeletons, and Oozes in order to collect more treasure? Or will you escape to safety, carrying out your loot? Bravery is rewarded, but many a foolhardy adventurer has had to flee when the Dragon arrives!

Dungeon of Fortune is a push your luck dungeon crawl for 2-6 players where you compete with your opponents for the best share of the loot. The deeper into the dungeon you go, the more dangerous it will be, but the more loot you will find. Gain experience from fighting monsters to level up, and keep a close watch for the infamous dragon!

Bottlecap Vikings
$19.95 SRP

You are mighty VIKINGS! Mighty, but very small. As you sail your ship around a bottlecap, you will loot and plunder gold and wood to improve your city which grants you new abilities and gain victory points. And while you may get hurt along the way, sometimes it’s best to just push ahead, because the Valkyries don’t come to claim the dead immediately...

Bottlecap Vikings is a small rondel game with a ton of replayability. The rondel spaces are not fixed in place - they are randomized at the beginning of the game. Not only that, they’re double-sided, so you might never play on the exact same configuration twice. There are two different victory conditions, and players each have a small “tech-tree” in their city with multiple viable paths creating tons of options for players. Furthermore, the city cards are double-sided, one side is identical for all players, and the other side is unique. To top it off, the crux of the gameplay is the push-your-luck damage system, which makes you value spaces differently depending on how damaged you or others already are!

Flip City
$19.95 SRP

In this deck-building game, you have no hand at all! Instead, you play the card directly from the top of your deck. Winning the game requires delicate strategies and some luck as well!

A turn consists of 2 phases: Card Playing and Building Phase.

Players play cards directly from the top of their deck, and may choose to continue until they have 3 cry-face icons in play, which ends their turn immediately. When they choose to stop, move on to the Building Phase.

During the Building Phase players can use the coins gained from the previously played cards to buy a new card or upgrade a card in your discard pile. To upgrade a card, a player pays the cost and flips it over, upgraded cards remain in your discard pile.

Since all cards in this game are double-sided, be careful not to flip them over accidentally when you place cards into your discard pile, and also when shuffling your deck.

Whenever a player gains 8 or more VP during a single card playing phase, the player wins immediately!
