What Do You Meme: Where Social Media Meets Card Games

Are you obsessed with social media? Do you scour Instagram on a regular basis looking for hysterical dog pictures and pop culture memes that make you laugh until your sides hurt? If so, you’ll get a kick out of What Do You Meme?, a card game that trades in memes and forces you to find the most hilarious combinations to win the game. What Do You Meme? is the perfect party game for the Internet age whose popularity will way outlast the viral memes on which it’s based.

Here Comes The Judge

What Do You Meme? is set up similarly to Cards Against Humanity in that each turn, one player is selected to be the judge who will pick the winner of that round. The judge will draw a card that represents the photo or meme for that round, while each of the other players will have to play the card they think represents the best caption for the meme. This shifting power dynamic is fun in that it allows everyone an equal opportunity to crown the victor while also getting to enjoy submitting their own captions for consideration.

The judge shuffles all of the cards and then reads them aloud to the amusement of all the players before picking the winner. Each round sees a new judge and a new winner, with whoever manages to win the most rounds being declared the ultimate winner. Unlike most card games, the fun in What Do You Meme? lies not necessarily in being crowned the winner, but in the hilarity of the cards and the creativity of the players.

Make Your Match

One thing that is really cool about What Do You Meme? is that the choosing of the winner is entirely subjective. You’ll have to adjust which cards you play based on the sense of humor of whoever is the judge at that moment. After, you might want to save that risqué caption for a round where grandma isn’t the judge!

The best way to win a round of What Do You Meme? isn’t always to play the card that fits the closest. For example, if you have to pick a caption for the meme of the sad looking fat cat, you might find that you’re more likely to win through shock value than for a caption that actually fits the mood of that fat cat (he really does look so sad!)

Later Editions

What Do You Meme? comes with 435 cards, so there are plenty of hilarious captions to choose from to keep the fun going all night long. For more advanced meme-lovers, there have been several expansion packs released that inject the game with some fresh humor and updated memes.

What Do You Meme? BSFW Edition is the Barely Safe For Work version of the game, which makes it a bit more acceptable for mixed crowds where the adult humor might be somewhat off-putting. What Do You Meme? Family Edition goes even further in sanitizing the humor of the game, allowing kids as young as 8 to enjoy the fun of being crowned meme king/queen.

May The Best Meme Win In “What Do You Meme?”

What Do You Meme? is suitable for ages 17 and up due to the adult humor of the caption cards, so it’s definitely not the kind of game you’ll want to play with younger kids. However, families can definitely enjoy one of the expansions for some family-friendly memes that won’t scar the kids for life. It’s also playable by anywhere from 3 to 20 players, so parties both large and small can enjoy playing the game equally.

Playing time lasts around 30-90 minutes, although really it can last however long the players want it to. Because rounds go in turns around a circle, players can choose to end the game whenever they want. What Do You Meme? is flexible enough that you can fit in a couple of rounds in between drinks or you can make it the main event of the party. The sky is the limit when it comes to the hilarious and raunchy combinations you’ll find with this line-crossing party game.

Picture a meme. Picture the perfect caption. Picture you winning. Picture it tonight!

Werewolves, Vampires, And Aliens: One Night Ultimate

While most card games involve hours of play time and dozens of cards to manage, One Night Ultimate gives you a fast-paced game you can play in only 10 minutes. Pick your card and take on a secret role to figure out who your friends are and who you’ll need to eliminate in order to win the game. Whether you go for the Werewolves, the Vampires, or the Aliens, One Night Ultimate is sure to have you pulling out the cards at every gathering to liven things up.

Werewolves

Each of the One Night Ultimate games can either be played on its own or added to each other for a fast-paced game of fun. One Night Ultimate Werewolf is the first game in the series, providing you with a ten-minute game full of horror and paranoia. In One Night Ultimate Werewolf, you take the classic tale of a wolf haunting the villagers and you set it all in one terrifying night. Each player gets their own unique role at the beginning of the game, which will then have major consequences once you reach the night phase.

Whether you’re the Troublemaker, the Seer, or one of the evil Werewolves, you’ll find that horrific things have happened in the middle of the night that the whole village is going to have to reckon with. You may even find that, although you started out an evil Werewolf, overnight you became one of the innocent villagers! When everyone wakes u in the morning, each player is tasked with figuring out who they are and who the Werewolves are so that they can stop them before they kill again.

The twist of the game comes from the switching of the roles that leaves you unsure of where your loyalties lie. Unlike most role-playing games where you’re fully aware of which team you’re one, One Night Ultimate Werewolf keeps you guessing at all times.

Vampires And Aliens

One Night Ultimate Vampire is the next edition of the One Night Ultimate Games, which introduces a brand new “Mark” system. While players begin with a plain mark at the beginning of the game, you may wake up to find you’ve become bitten and are forced to endure immortality as a Vampire. One Night Ultimate Vampire raises the stakes of One Night Ultimate Werewolf by adding deeper levels of deduction and complexity.

One Night Ultimate Alien is the next game in the One Night Ultimate lineup that is very similar to One Night Ultimate Vampire. This game features less role switching but introduces two bungling aliens who have to fight to be the last one left surviving. Figuring out everyone’s motivation for why they want certain people dead can help you piece together the clues to their identities and win the game.

Werewolf Daybreak Expansion

While One Night Ultimate Werewolf can be combined with either the Vampire or the Alien edition, there’s a special expansion called One Night Ultimate Werewolf Daybreak that takes the original Werewolf game and allows you to play up to 10 players. There are no more basic villagers—each of the 11 new roles has a secret hidden ability that can make this fast-paced game even more of a wild ride!

Take Your Pick Of Monster With One Night Ultimate

One Night Ultimate Werewolf is playable by 3-7 players, although some of the other editions and expansions allow you to fit up to 10 players. This game is absolutely perfect for parties of all sizes, and you don’t have to worry about choosing a moderator or having anyone get eliminated. With a playing time of 10 minutes, you can easily fit a game in before dinner or drinks as a fun icebreaker.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf is also suitable for ages 8 and up, so younger kids can join in on the fun without getting confused by complex rules or adult themes. Still, One Night Ultimate games are all fun and interesting enough that adults will be able to enjoy the deeper strategy of the game. One Night Ultimate is the perfect game for anyone who loves monsters and using their skills of deduction.

Grab your flashlight and put on your thinking cap for an adventure tonight!

Unstable Unicorns: Building An Army Of Cuteness

What could be more adorable than a game about unicorns? After all, these magical creatures have always been portrayed as gentle and majestic creatures that wouldn’t hurt a fly. The unicorns in Unstable Unicorns, however, are about as far from this depiction as you can possibly get. In this entertaining and colorful card game, you’ll build an army of vicious and conniving Unicorns through which you can harness their magical powers for your own nefarious means. With creative drawings and unique twists, Unstable Unicorns is a card game with limitless imagination.

Building Your Army Of Magical Unicorns

You begin Unstable Unicorns with a single Baby Unicorn in your stable, which you must then grow into an army of magical Unicorns, each with their own distinct powers. There are 20 different kinds of Unicorn cards that you can collect during the game, and the goal of the game is to be the first player to collect seven different kinds of Unicorns. There are also Basic Unicorn cards, which are hilariously drawn “basic” stereotypes such as modern hipsters or pumpkin spice latte-lovers.

The wacky and imaginative Unicorn cards are one of the biggest highlights of Unstable Unicorns. From the Extremely Destructive Unicorn to the Rainbow Unicorn, each comes with a hilarious drawing and a dynamic set of powers that can help or hinder your efforts to win the game. While cards such as the Extremely Destructive Unicorn can force everyone else to sacrifice one of their own Unicorn cards, the Narwhal Unicorn card has no special powers at all—aside from its own cuteness!

The Righteous Ruler Of All Things Magical

The first player to build a Unicorn army with seven different Unicorn cards is declared the Righteous Ruler of All Things Magical and winner of the game. While it may seem easy to collect seven Unicorn cards, the strategy of the game comes from annihilating your competition’s armies while protecting your own Unicorns from harm.

Each player has five cards in their hand at any time (in addition to the cards in their stable that represent their Unicorn army). These cards can consist of certain types of cards that allow you to better build your army or attack other players. Upgrade cards such as Rainbow Mane allow you to add Basic Unicorns to your stable, while Magic cards such as Good Deal let you draw three cards and discard a single card.

Downgrade cards are used to attack other players or even strategically cull your army, such as the Sadistic Ritual card that allows you to sacrifice one of your Unicorn cards and draw a new one. The Neigh card is one of the most powerful cards in the game, as it allows you to stop a player from playing their card at any time and force them to toss it in the discard pile. Even the smartest strategies can fall apart when hijacked by a powerful “Neigh!”

Unstable Unicorns Expansions

Unstable Unicorns is already an incredibly imaginative and hilarious game, but its expansions make it even more diabolical and entertaining. The Rainbow Apocalypse expansion add double-edged cards that hurt both the player and the recipient of the card, while the Dragons expansion allows for brutal attacks on your opponents that can break up even the closest of friendships.

Find Out Who Your True Friends Are With Unstable Unicorns

Unstable Unicorns is perhaps best for parties or friendly game nights, as it can accommodate anywhere from 2-8 players. You can quickly inject some high stakes fun into a casual gathering among friends thanks to the strategy and double-crossing required by Unstable Unicorns. Playing time lasts around 30-45 minutes, so it’s a game you can easily play a round or two of without anyone losing interest.

Unstable Unicorns is suitable for ages 14+, so it may be better for adults or families with older kids than for younger players. However, the humor and imagination of Unstable Unicorns can be just as enjoyable for kids as it can for older players. If you’re looking for something that fosters friendly (or unfriendly) competition while keeping everyone laughing, Unstable Unicorns is the perfect game to spice things up.

Be careful, your “niegh”bor is out to get you!

Throw Throw Burrito: A Card Game With A Delicious Twist

If the game of dodgeball was played with burritos, the world would be a better place. Luckily, the creators of Throw Throw Burrito decided to give the ultimate gift to the world in the form of a card game that combines matching cards with squishy burritos. You won’t be able to stop laughing as you engage in the deadly burrito war and seek cover in an effort to avoid getting a costly burrito bruise. With rapid-paced gameplay and a unique and hilarious concept, Throw Throw Burrito is a game you won’t soon forget.

Matching Cards, Dodging Burritos

Throw Throw Burrito begins with each player being dealt 15 cards to draw from, while the rest of the cards go in the center of the table next to the two foam burritos. The goal of the game is to earn points by matching sets of cards. Throughout the game, you’ll draw and discard cards in an effort to get matching sets of three while also dodging flying burritos.

One of the most interesting aspects of Throw Throw Burrito is that it doesn’t involve turns, but rather forces you to move quickly as everything happens at once. The game is played over two rounds, with the winner being whoever wins the most points during the round. You’ll win one point for matching three sets, win two points for declaring a burrito battle, and lose a point for getting a burrito bruise. The round ends when all six burrito bruises have been dished out.

Burrito Wars, Brawls And Duels

Throw Throw Burrito involves three different types of battles: wars, brawls, and duels. The person who declares the battle gets to sit it out, while the people in the battle must duke it out using the foam burritos in the center of the table. A burrito war pits all the players against each other, forcing them to move quickly to grab a burrito and toss it at another player. Whoever gets hit takes a burrito bruise and loses a point—if they catch the burrito, however, then whoever threw it is the one who takes the bruise.

If someone calls out a burrito brawl, the players on either side of them must try to quickly grab the burrito and chuck it at their opponent. The burrito duel is where things get real, as the declarer must choose two players to engage in a classic duel where they walk three steps apart before firing their burrito. While no one is allowed to interfere in a burrito battle, players are encouraged to fight dirty and take whatever steps they can to avoid the deadly burrito bruise.

Game Pieces

Throw Throw Burrito is so much more than just your average card game thanks to its eccentric game pieces and adorable stuffed burritos. The deck of cards comes with special burrito cards that spice up the game, while the foam burritos feature cute little designs that make you feel guilty when you toss them at your opponent’s head. The “Fear Me” badge is what really takes the cake, however, as the round’s winner gets to proudly pin it on their chest to proclaim their victory.

Throw Throw Burrito: May The Best Burrito Win

Throw Throw Burrito is playable by 2-6 players, although you can definitely accommodate more players by combining multiple games. Throw Throw Burrito also has a short playing time of 15 minutes. Since it takes place in 2 rounds, however, it’s easy to reset the game and play it again right after. Tossing a burrito at your closest friends is not the kind of thing you’ll get tired of anytime soon, so Throw Throw Burrito lends itself to repeat playing!

Throw Throw Burrito is suitable for ages 7 and up, which makes it perfect for getting younger players involved in the shenanigans. Young and old players alike will have a blast engaging in burrito duels and quickly snatching up cards to earn the right to wear the “Fear Me” badge. If you’ve ever felt a desire to relive your high school years playing dodgeball (minus the gnarly bruises), you’ll love the wacky fun of Throw Throw Burrito.

Ready! Aim! Fire!

 

Wreak Havoc And Rack Up Points With Smash Up

Sure, dinosaurs are pretty terrifying, but what if they also had laser beams? Smash Up asks the questions that no one else would dare, giving you countless combinations of vicious minions to choose from in your quest to build the ultimate army. Minions do what minions do best, and Smash Up delights in mayhem, uncontrollable outbreaks, and the gleeful destruction of property. With your army of wizard-dinosaurs and alien-pirates, you’ll have a wicked good time smashing bases and double-crossing your opponents.

Shuffling The Factions

Smash Up comes with eight different factions of creatures, from mechanical robots to undead zombies to supernatural aliens. Each game presents a unique combination as you combine two different factions to create your own playable deck. Each faction comes with a 20-card deck, giving you 40 different action and creature cards that you can unleash during the game to destroy bases and earn points.

One of the coolest aspects of the game is the different kind of power you find through the different combination of factions. Alien-ninjas fighting off against pirate-zombies makes for a one-of-a-kind battle unlike anything you’ll ever see onscreen! You’ll have to maneuver the unique powers of your faction (such as the power of robots to make weaponized mini-robots) if you want to build up your army’s value and earn the most points.

Smashing Bases And Scoring Points

Players earn points throughout the game by building up their army’s strength around certain location cards. Each turn allows you to play cards from your hand and deploy your army to certain locations. Once you’ve deployed enough troops, your minions destroy the base and you earn points. You can still earn points even if it wasn’t your troops that triggered the destruction, as the second- and third-place players with the next highest amount of minions in each location will also earn points.

The strategy to win involves spreading your cards both widely and smartly. For example, the strength of your alien faction to reclaim discarded cards may mean that you’ll earn the most points by consolidating minions in a few key areas rather than trying to be everywhere at once. Or, your special ninja strength may mean the best course of action is to attack the other players and keep them from earning those crucial points!

Smash Up Expansions

As if dinosaurs, ninjas, and aliens weren’t enough, Smash Up has released several expansions that feature even more unique characters you can use to cause mayhem. The Munchkin expansion takes on the characters from the card game Munchkin, giving you armies of medieval orcs and elves with which to wreak magical destruction upon your enemies.

Pretty Pretty Smash Up is a hilarious expansion that replaces vicious zombies with adorable kitty cats whose greatest weapon is their cuteness. Beautiful princesses and mischievous fairies will face off in this expansion that’s nothing if not pretty. And if horror is your thing, The Obligatory Cthulu Set expansion adds cultists and terrifying Elder things to the game for a scary good time.

Choose Your Combo Carefully With Smash Up

Smash Up is playable by 2-4 players, so it’s definitely more of a game for small groups than it is for larger parties. Because it’s suitable for ages 12 and up, Smash Up is the perfect game for the kids to play while mom and dad have a night out. Or, the whole family can enjoy facing off as laser-wielding dragons and drooling zombies! Playing time lasts around 45 minutes, but the possibility for multiple combinations of decks means that you could play any number of rounds before you’d get sick of the game.

Smash Up shines with its intricate artwork and creative monsters. The countless expansions make Smash Up a must-have game, as you can continue to add new decks with zany characters that keep the game fun and interesting over the years. The cards are definitely creative, but they’re also simple enough that you don’t have to be an expert in card games to keep up. Smash Up is a card game that has the best of both worlds, giving you interesting characters and simple rules that anyone can enjoy.

Build your army and crush your opponents!

Munchkin: The Card Game For Monster-Killers And Backstabbers

Does the idea of killing monsters and stealing from your friends sound like a good time to you? If so, you’ll love the hilarious card game Munchkin, a D&D-inspired game that takes the dungeon experience and flips it on its head. Grab the Horny Helmet and vanquish the Plutonium Dragon to level up in this fantastic card game that will keep you laughing the entire time.

Kicking Down The Door

In Munchkin, each player begins their turn by “kicking down the door”, which involves drawing a Door Card from random. Door Cards belong to several different categories. The first are Curse Cards, which give you a certain negative effect. If you have the bad luck to draw a Curse Card, you may end up having to forfeit your turn or go back a certain number of levels. These usually come with funny little drawings such as the “Duck of Doom”, which curses you for being silly enough to pick up a duck in a dungeon (what were you thinking?)

Door Cards can also be Item, Race, or Class Cards that you get to add to your hand to be played at a future time. These can be helpful in attacking opponents during their turns or in giving yourself a valuable boost in fighting monsters. The last kind of Door Card is a Monster Card, which pits you against a ferocious creature in an opportunity to either level up or suffer the consequences.

Level Up But Don’t Get Killed

Munchkin begins with all players starting at level 1. Whoever is the first to reach level 10 is declared the winner, but you’ll have to fight off some monsters if you want to level up. Monster fights will pit your total level against the level of the monster to decide who wins the round. The real excitement of the game comes from the fact that your fellow players can either choose to help you defeat the monster (in exchange for Treasure Cards) or add another monster to the mix to try and crush you.

If you win the fight and defeat the monster, you can draw a certain amount of Treasure Cards and level up. If you lose, however, you’ll have to roll the dice to try and get away. Anything less than a five will force you to deal with the “Bad Stuff” on the monster card, which can result in losing levels or Treasure Cards. You may even die as a result of losing the battle, which doesn’t disqualify you from the game but does force you to end your turn and draw a new hand for equipment.

Munchkins Sequels And Expansions

Munchkin has spawned countless sequels that can be played on their own or added to the original game for an even wilder good time. Munchkin Adventure Time is based on everyone’s favorite show on Cartoon Network, incorporating art and characters from the series. Munchkin Booty sets the game on the high seas, forcing you to battle vividly drawn pirates drawn by Guest Artist Tom Siddell. Expansions such as Munchkin Apocalypse add natural disasters, zombie takeovers, and alien invasions in addition to new mechanics for more complex gameplay.

Kill, Steal, And Stab: The Munchkin Way

Munchkin is playable by 3-6 players, so it’s definitely well suited for small to medium groups of friends who’ve grown tired of playing the traditional Dungeons and Dragons card game. Newcomers to card games will also find plenty to love with the simple rules and amazing illustrations done by John Kovalic, which add a unique level of style and fun to the game.

Munchkin is suitable for ages 10 and up, so families can definitely get a kick out of all that it has to offer. With a playing time of one to two hours, you can make an entire night out of a game without losing interest. Thanks to its potential for cooperation and ruthless backstabbing, Munchkin is a game that can make or break friendships in an instant. If you’re looking for a game with humor, strategy, and excellent artwork, Munchkin and any one of its numerous expansions will provide countless hours of fun.

So kick down that door and start your adventure now!

Lords Of Waterdeep

Explore The Forgotten Realm And Rule The City With Lords Of Waterdeep

From the magical world of Dungeons & Dragons comes Lords of Waterdeep, a strategy board game that pits secretive and power-hungry masked rulers against one another in a campaign to grasp control of the city. Lords of Waterdeep combines resource gathering with card playing in an intricate and fantastical experience that will have you backstabbing your closest friends to win some much-needed victory points. The fantasy and political intrigue of Lords of Waterdeep elevate this board game from a forgettable worker placement game into a magical quest.

The Masked Lords Of Waterdeep

In the Forgotten Realms, there lies a most fantastical city named Waterdeep, the City of Splendors. As one of the masked Lords of Waterdeep, you’ll secretly recruit adventurers to embark on quests and bring back rewards with which you can grow your political influence. Lords of Waterdeep is all about the secret back-alley dealings and double crosses that determine who holds the true power of the city.

At the beginning of the game, each player will take on the role of one of the five Lords of Waterdeep. The game box comes with five different cardstock player mats with which you’ll conduct your various deeds. It also comes with hundreds of different cards, cubes, meeples, and other little colored trinkets that fill the game with colorful flourishes.

Adventurers, Rewards, And Quests

As one of the Lords of Waterdeep, you’ll control agents who will recruit adventurers to perform certain quests for them and earn rewards. These rewards will sometimes come in the form of victory points, which boost your influence over Waterdeep and get you one step closer to winning the game. Whoever wins the most victory points by the end of the eighth round is declared the winner, so you’ll have to act fast if you don’t want to fall behind.

The adventure resources are represented as purple, orange, black, and white cubes that are based on the four character classes of Dungeons & Dragons. Certain adventurers are better suited for certain quests—will your adventurer succeed in Skullduggery or does their strength lie in Commerce? You’ll need to stay on your toes and strategize if you want to block the other Lords from gaining control.

Scoundrels Of Skullport Expansion

A single expansion was released in 2013 called Scoundrels of Skullport, which adds two expansion modules to the base game of Lords of Waterdeep. Whether you dive into the Undermountain module; explore the Skullport module; or add both expansions to the game, you’ll get a whole host of new game boards, cards, and tokens with which to play.

Undermountain adds an interesting new mechanic that allows you to place resources on the game board spaces while also offering you more expensive but rewarding quests. Skullport adds the corruption mechanic to the game, which includes the new corruption track game board and 25 corruption tokens. These can rob you of crucial victory points and make winning the game that much harder. If you’re a fan of Lords of Waterdeep and are looking to further explore the magical Forgotten Realm, the Scoundrels of Skullport expansion is an excellent addition to the base game.

Take Over The City Of Splendor With Lords Of The Waterdeep

Lords of Waterdeep is playable by 2-5 players, so it’s perfect for small to medium groups of friends who are looking for a new strategy board game to add to the mix. Dungeons & Dragons lovers will enjoy the familiar fantasy elements, while fantasy lovers in general will marvel at the creative imagination of the game’s designers.

Lords of Waterdeep is a somewhat lengthy game, with a playing time of one to two hours. However, hardcore strategy gamers will find gameplay completely manageable, especially when compared to most D&D quests. Lords of Waterdeep is also suitable for ages 12 and up, so it’s a great game for younger players who are looking to get into more advanced concepts of strategy and fantasy. While there are many tokens and cards to keep track of throughout the game, both beginners and advanced players alike can enjoy the adventure that lies within the Lords of Waterdeep.

Adjust your mask and plot your way to victory!

Llamas Unleashed: Bringing On The Alpacalypse

If you’ve ever played the delightful card game Unstable Unicorns, you’ll love Llamas Unleashed. Llamas Unleashed is a card game released by the same company that made Unstable Unicorns, containing just as many puns and WAY more llamas. Llamas Unleashed is a farm-based strategy game that pits players against each other in a race to be the first to build their herd of llamas, goats, rams, and alpacas. With gorgeously drawn cards and goofy puns, Llamas Unleashed is sure to keep you laughing from start to finis

Gathering Your Herd

The goal of Llamas Unleashed is to be the first person to fill your Field with seven different types of animals. These animals can be anything from an Adorable Alpaca to a Bahama Llama to a Spontaneously Fainting Goat. The pictures on each card are a major part of what makes Llamas Unleashed so much fun, as these creative drawings add a unique whimsical element to the game that keep your interest piqued.

Each animal card is going to be a certain type of llama, alpaca, goat, or ram, and each specific animal comes with its own unique powers. The Magical Ramicorn allows you to bring any Ram card from your hand directly into your field without taking up a turn, while the Bahama Llama allows you to discard a card and force another player to skip their next round.

One of the funniest types of animal cards are the “basic” ones, such as the Basic Llama (who’s just your average annoying tourist) or the Basic Goat (who has an annoying habit of talking on the phone too loudly). While these cards don’t have special powers, their humorous descriptors more than compensate for this.

Special Cards

In addition to the animal cards, Llamas Unleashed comes with several types of cards that you can use to help build your herd and hinder your opponents. Instant cards such as Surprise Emu Attack can destroy another player’s Animal card in the middle of their turn. These cards keep Llamas Unleashed from getting boring, as they can upend winning strategies at any moment.

Downgrade cards such as Berserk Llama Syndrome can be played to force another player to sacrifice one of their animal cards at the beginning of their turn. Upgrade cards give you an extra boost, such as the Venti Alpacchiato, which allows you to draw an extra card. Magic cards are one of the most powerful card types in the game, as cards such as Alpacalypse not only come with a super scary drawing of an alpaca with laser eyes, but also force everyone on the board to sacrifice one of their animal cards.

Herd Bonus

While Llamas Unleashed is based on the same core concepts as Unstable Unicorns, one of the biggest differences is the new mechanic known as the Herd Bonus. A Herd Bonus means that if you get three of the same type of animal in your Field (whether it be an alpaca, llama, goat, or ram), then you get a Field Advantage. This Field Advantage makes coming up with a winning strategy even more complex, as it may be just the boost you need to jump back from the brink of destruction and get crowned the winner.

Llamas, Alpacas, Goats, And Rams, Oh My!

Llamas Unleashed is playable by 2-8 players, so it’s just as perfect for a large party as it is for a one-on-one session. Playing time lasts around 30-45 minutes, which makes it flexible enough to slip in a round whenever you’ve got a bit of downtime without having to dedicate the whole night to playing games. Llamas Unleashed is suitable for ages 14+, mostly due to the humor of the cards. The strategy, however, is something that can be easy enough for younger players to quickly pick up while also remaining complex enough for keep more advanced players engaged.

If you’re tired of games that are all strategy and no imagination, Llamas Unleashed will be the wacky game you need to bring back that playful energy. The combination of intense strategy, hilarious puns and goofy drawings will keep this card game from getting stale no matter how many times you play it.

The most fun you ever “herd” of! Buy it today!

Dive Into The Marvel Universe With Legendary

Of all the deck-building games on the market, Legendary is the game that you’ll play time and time again. With your favorite Marvel characters and the possibility for countless card combinations, no two games will be alike! If channeling the Invincible Hulk and dispatching evil henchmen sounds like your idea of a good time, Legendary is the superhero card game for you.

Heroes Vs. Villains

Legendary pits the heroes of the Marvel universe against the villains in the ultimate battle of good vs. evil. Players can choose between 15 of their favorite superheroes, including Avengers such as Captain America or Iron man as well as X-men such as Cyclops or Storm. Your favorite Marvel villains also make an appearance, as you’ll have to fight the likes of Loki and Magneto if you want to foil the plans of the evil mastermind.

Legendary begins with players choosing a single mastermind villain to play against and filling their Villain deck with attack cards aligned with that villain’s dastardly scheme. Players will then choose several hero decks to shuffle together and play from, recruiting these cards across the course of the game to build their deck and vanquish the villains. Because you only choose one mastermind villain and several heroes from a much greater deck of cards, each game is sure to be a brand new unique combination of cards.

Escaping Villains

The objective of the game is to fight and defeat villains in order to collect their cards and earn points. During the course of the game, you’ll need to build your recruitment powers to enlist additional heroes to your cause. You’ll also need to build up your fighting ability in order to vanquish the new villains that get drawn at the beginning of each round.

If you take too long to defeat the villains, the villain row will fill up with cards and allow a villain to get away and wreak havoc upon the heroes. Certain villains will also perform evil deeds as soon as they’re introduced into the game, kidnapping innocent civilians and forcing you to rescue them. You’ll have to keep up with the cards if you plan on defeating the evil mastermind and claiming enough points to win the game.

Foiling The Mastermind

While you’re off fighting the minor villains, the evil mastermind is plotting his own nefarious plans. Your mastermind’s evil scheme depends on their identity, as their objective may be allowing a certain number of villains to escape or wounding the heroes to a certain level. You’ll have to build up your fighting power enough to claim all of the mastermind’s attack cards and bring the game to an end. If you’re too late to prevent the mastermind from succeeding, however, it’s game over for everyone!

Legendary Expansions And Sequels

The basic game of Legendary is based on characters in the Marvel universe, but there are several expansions and sequels that add new and dynamic characters to the mix. The Marvel Studios Phase 1 expansion adds characters from the Phase 1 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including almost 400 card sets and the new Iron Monger mastermind character.

The Villains sequel turns the tables on the game, making the villains the playable characters and forcing you to take out the heroes in your evil quest to destroy the city. There’s even a Firefly version of Legendary that uses the most beloved characters from Joss Whedon’s landmark television show Firefly.

Legendary: A Must-Have Deck-Building Game

Legendary is playable by 1-5 players, so you can be pretty flexible about the size of the group you gather when you want to play a round. Playing time also lasts around 30 minutes to an hour, which means you can definitely go in for a couple games if you want to make it an all-nighter.

KeyForge: Card Game Of The Gods

Nothing is more motivating than the ever-present thirst for knowledge and power. In the world within KeyForge, power is nothing without knowledge, and you’ll have to fight tooth and nail to access the hidden secrets in the Vaults. A strong heart and a diligent mind are required to find the right combination of cards to grow your stores of Amber while also fighting your enemies. With thrilling battles and a beautifully realized fantasy world, KeyForge is a card game with plenty of imagination.

The World Of The Crucible

KeyForge is set in the world of the Crucible, which was artificially built by the god-like Archons. These powerful beings forged the Crucible from the pieces of countless planets, and are in constant battle with each other in the pursuit of knowledge of their origins. KeyForge is a race between different factions of Archons to be the first to collect three keys and gain the invaluable knowledge and power locked away within the Vaults of the Crucible.

Archon Decks

KeyForge is the first unique deck game in that it is sold in individual decks, each with their own random selection of 37 cards. Unlike most deck-building games, each KeyForge deck is designed to be unchangeable and played right out of the box. One of the best parts of KeyForge is the fact that each deck comes with its own name, which includes such gems as “The Boy Who Basically Head-butts Heaven.”

You won’t need to worry about shelling out countless dollars to collect different decks, but can enjoy the knowledge that you’re the only person out there with that exact combination of cards! This can create a fun challenge that forces you to make the most of the cards you’re dealt, finding the winning combination to push you forward into victory.

Declaring Houses And Collecting Amber

Gameplay involves two players each using their own deck of cards to play different creatures, actions, upgrades, and artifacts. Every card in KeyForge is associated with a specific House, and each deck comes with cards from three different Houses. At the beginning of each turn, you’ll have to declare which House you’re playing from. You can then play as many or as few cards as you like from that House during your turn. The potential to play multiple cards at once can help make for some pretty eventful turns where you can savage the competition.

You’ll have to collect enough Amber in order to forge your three keys and unlock the Vaults. Certain creatures can provide you with Amber and can also be used to fight the competition. You’ll have to balance your efforts to collect Amber with your battle tactics in order to defend yourself long enough to win the game.

KeyForge Expansion Sets

KeyForge releases new cards regularly through their expansion sets, which add new Houses to the mix that provide for even more card combinations. The original set, KeyForge: Call of the Archons, comes with two starter decks and two unique Archon Decks for a total of 370 cards. Later expansion sets such as Age of Ascension or Worlds Collide add over 200 new cards each, while also throwing in new Houses such as Saurian Republic or Grand Star Alliance to make gameplay even more exciting.

Answer The Call Of The Archons With KeyForge

KeyForge is a 2-player game, so it’s definitely more suited for one-on-one situations than it is for a family game night. Fans of Magic the Gathering or other fantasy will love the creativity and potential for complex strategy building that KeyForge allows. Newcomers to card games will also enjoy the fact that they won’t have to invest a lot of time and money into building their deck—all you need is a starter deck and you’re ready to play!

Playing time lasts around 15-45 minutes, but turns go very quickly thanks to the potential for playing many cards at once. Players will love the fast-paced back and forth as they’re forced to strategize on the spot and outmaneuver their opponent’s every move. KeyForge is also suitable for ages 14 and up, so young adults will especially enjoy the fantastical world within the game.

Grandpa Beck’s Golf: The Perfect Card Game For Any Age

While traditional golf may not sound like the kind of game that younger players would enjoy, Grandpa Beck’s Golf is interesting for kids and adults alike. This game takes the classic face card game and adds new cards and rules. Grandpa Beck’s Golf combines luck and strategy to allow for dynamic competition at a nice relaxed pace. Whether you’re looking for a game to play with the kids, or for something grandma and grandpa would enjoy, Grandpa Beck’s Golf is a swing and a hit!

Laying Down The Grid

The game starts with each golfer being dealt 9 cards, which they lay face down in a 3 by 3 grid. Each player then turns over two cards of their choosing, without peeking at the rest of them. The other cards in the deck stay in the middle of the table, with a separate draw pile and discard pile. The game takes place in rounds, with each player taking their turn to draw a card from either their own grid, the draw pile, or the discard pile.

Lowest Score Wins The Game

The fun of the game comes from the strategy in which you draw cards and set up your grid. Because the golfer with the lowest score is the winner in a traditional game of golf, whoever ends up with the lowest score in Grandpa Beck’s Golf wins the game. You can lower your score by collecting negative value red cards, which signify things like a birdie or hole in one and subtract anywhere from 1 to 4 points from your score.

Black cards will add points to your score, but if you collect three of the same black cards in a row, then you get to subtract those points from your overall score. You can make rows horizontally or vertically, but sadly not diagonally, so be sure to plan accordingly. You’ll have to strategize carefully in order to arrange the cards in the perfect order to nab the negative bonus before your competition has a chance to act first!

Mulligans And Hazards

There are two more card types that make Grandpa Beck’s Golf more than just a game of numbers. The Mulligan cards are some of the most powerful cards in the game, acting as wild cards to be used in place of a black card of any number. Hazard cards, on the other hand, will add 10 points to your overall score, so make sure to discard these toxic cards as quickly as possible.

The game ends once one of the players flips over the final card in their grid. If this player has the lowest score on the board, they win a bonus of -5 points. If someone else has a lower or identical score, however, then they get a penalty of +10 points. Any player who has cards that haven’t already been flipped over will have these cards added to their overall score, which can be devastating if you end up with a hidden hazard card among your bunch! As the game draws to a close, you’ll have to keep an eye on all of the other players to make sure that you’ll come out ahead by ending the game.

Tee Up With Grandpa Beck’s Golf

The best thing about Grandpa Beck’s Golf is how flexible it can to accommodate all different types of players. It’s playable by 2-5 players, which makes it perfect for families as well as for a one-on-one game between grandpa and grandson. Because it’s suitable for ages 8 and up, it’s a great way to connect different generations by giving them something to play that everyone can enjoy.

Playing time lasts around 30 minutes, but because there is no set amount of rounds in the game, you can pretty much play it as long or as short as you want to. Be sure to specify the number of rounds you want to play before you begin in order to give the game a firm endpoint (and protect you from accusations of quitting too soon!) With simple rules and entertaining game play, Grandpa Beck’s Golf is a family game for all generations.

Stack The Decks And Cover Your Assets

Cover Your Assets is a cheeky card game from Grandpa Beck’s Games that pits family members against each other in a greedy race to become a millionaire. By building towers of valuable assets and stealing from the competition, you’ll accumulate enough wealth and luxury to beat the other players and win the ultimate bragging rights! With quick to learn rules and dynamic strategies, Cover Your Assets is the ultimate game for competitive families.

Collecting Your Assets

Every player in the game has to build their own stack of assets using matching sets of cards. Each set of cards will match two of the same type of asset cards. There are 10 different kinds of asset cards in the game, from sparkling jewels to overflowing piggy banks. Each time you create a new set you’ll stack it crosswise on top of the previous set to build your tower of assets.

Each turn you have one of several options. The first option is to make a pair of assets from your own hand, which you can then add to your assets tower. Wild cards can be used in place of any type of asset, so be sure to keep an eye out for these valuable collectibles. The second option you have is to draw the top card from the discard pile, which can be used to make a pair and add to your assets tower. If the first two options don’t work, you have the third option to discard one of your cards and draw a new one from the draw piles.

Stealing And Defending Assets

The last option you have is to try and steal a set of assets from one of your fellow players. This is where the name Cover Your Assets comes from, and it’s the most diabolical part of the game. To challenge another player and steal their assets, you need at least one set of assets in your own stack. The other player also needs at least two sets of assets on their stack (although you can only attempt to steal the top set).

In order to steal someone’s assets, you have to show them a card that matches their top set. This is where it gets interesting, however, as that player can defend their assets by showing you a matching card of their own. If you’ve got another matching card (or a wild card), you can continue this back-and-forth until one of you runs out of that type of card. The winner gets ALL of the cards used in the challenge, and can proudly add them to the top of their stack (and rake in the points at the end of the round).

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

Once you’ve played your turn, you’ll draw cards to replenish your hand until eventually the draw pile runs out. The round ends when there are no cards left to play—although these last few moments can often be the most critical! A last minute steal can win you valuable assets that can boost your score enough to put you over the limit and win the game. Scores will be tallied at the end of every round, and the first player to reach one million dollars in assets wins the game. If two players reach a million dollars in the same round, whoever has the highest score wins!

Cover Your Assets: A Game For Ruthless Families

Cover Your Assets is playable by 2-6 players and is suitable for ages 8 and up, so families with multiple generations can all enjoy the addictive nature of this ruthless card game. Playing time lasts between around 15-45 minutes, which is short enough to hold young kids’ attention while allowing more advanced players to still enjoy the thrill of long-form strategy.

Sometimes the best way to bring the family together is by pitting everyone against each other. Stealing assets and challenging the other players adds a deliciously malicious nature to the game that keeps things interesting while remaining lighthearted at the same time. Cover Your Assets is small and easy to pack, so it’s the perfect thing to bring along to spice up any vacation!
