Cooper Island

$69.95 SRP

In the age of exploration, the players arrive at a new home far away from their homeland. They try to colonize the big island and each player tries to explore one part of it by placing landscape tiles. Landscape tiles grant resources and those are used to erect buildings with special abilities. Barriers on the island have to be removed in order to explore the island even further. Players build valuable statues and supply ships get them the supplies from the old world they need to be a successful settler on Cooper Island.

The special thing about Cooper Island is the way the players mark their victory points. They take small ship markers around the island to show their progress. On their way around the island, they find smaller islands inshore that grant valuable benefits. After five rounds, a game of Cooper Island ends and the player who developed the best and went on furthest with their ships will win.

2-4 players
Ages 12+
60-120 minute play time

Crystal Palace

$69.95 SRP

In Crystal Palace, players take on the role of a nation at the time of the first World Fair in London (1851), trying to create a buzz with spectacular inventions and the support of famous and powerful people.

Crystal Palace is a dice-placement game in which the players themselves determine the stats of their dice at the beginning of each round. The higher the number, the better—but it comes at a price. In the course of the game, dice are placed on eight action locations (Patent Office, Reform Club, London Times, Port of London, Waterloo Station, British Museum, Bank of England, Westminster) in a competition for the best resources, patents, and brains.

In a world of slightly weird inventions, you will meet people like Phileas Fogg, Levi Strauss and Amelia Edwards, and invent gadgets such as the Thinking machine, the Beer glass counter or the Climate changer.

Restock Coming Soon

The Estates

$39.99 SRP

The City Council recently approved the zoning map for a new urban development, The Estates. The zoning map calls for 2 rows of 4 buildings each, but investors ignore the requirements and begin building in all 3 rows. The Mayor catches wind of the potential for profit and begins planning a new mansion in The Estates, which doubles the vale of one of the rows. The City Council puts an end to this racketeering with an ultimatum: as soon as the first two rows are completed the uncompleted row is to be torn down, resulting in a huge loss for all who invested there.

The players take on the role of investors seeking to make the most money by developing buildings in The Estates. Players will bid for the carious building pieces and place them in The Estates to their benefit. All buildings in completed rows score positive points, while all buildings in incomplete rows score negative points. It is possible to have zero completed rows of buildings.

2-5 players
Ages 10+
40 minute play time
