Travel to the past with Yinthe and Jairo, two stone age children, to rediscover how the first humans settled the world around them.

In My First Stone Age, a children's version of the Stone Age family game, the players collect goods and build their own settlement.

My first impression is .... It Rocks! It has elements of his older brothers and is very easy to learn for kids. Great wooden components, good mechanics as memory, collecting the right goods and planning your moves for the right goods.

The awards are telling the success of this great and fun family game for the youngsters

Photo impression of Hellas from Designer Stefan Dorra

mbmbmbmbmb
Under the Greece sun with blue bays and white marble a setting for a fine holiday, swimming, architecture, wine and good food and some boardgames.

Stefan Dorra is bringing us back to 480BC. It’s the rise of classic Greek civilization. After the overwhelming victory of Xerxes’ army at Thermopylae the Greek return to their country and continue the hard work at the islands. The building and development of large cities is the next step into a new era.


Box Presentation - Hellas


Found settlements on a Greek island and let them grow into large cities. Build statues in honour of the Gods or finish one of the various temples on the island.



All this work needs a lot of marble, which can be found in the many quarries.


Houses next to a quarry can mine marble, but some quarries produce more marble than others.


Growing Cities at the Island


The temple provides extra bonus at the end of the game


White Goblin Games will produce the Multi Language production



The illustrations of Dennis Lohausen and the beautiful wooden components make the game really appealing at the table.


I was lucky with some friends and others to play the first produced games fresh from the factory


A home my son get really into the game


Jairo is making his move

Each round players choose an action in the display. When choosing to build a house, palace or square on the island all other can perform that action too. Deciding to mine marmer (to get more money) will also help other players, because they'll earn money too through their houses next to mines. Building pillars in temples or raising a statue are the only type of actions you'll perform by yourself, but at the end of the game all players might score points because of your work.

Strategically build your settlements on the island to gain the most profit from quarries. Timing is crucial: most of your chosen actions can also be immediately performed by all other players. Think ahead to outsmart your opponents and score the most points with your cities.


Overview at the end of the game

Hellas is a middle weight worker-placement with enough tactics to hold the tension. It plays smooth and fast. The rules a clear and easy to learn for family and gamers. My kids really liked the game and discovered during the games more tactics and strategies.


Stefan Dorra, thanks to bringing up this sunny and fresh game at the table!

Close Up - Building the Piramide


Game Overview

In Kheops, players are rival architects taking part in the building of the great pyramid. In turn, player place tiles (rooms and corridors) and pawns (workers, priests, mummy, and even pharaoh) on the pyramid building site. Of course, some tiles have special features, like sarcophagi or curses. There are even rumors of rotating corridors and secret networks.

A small impression of Biblios

Biblios - You are an abbot of a medieval monastery competing with other abbots to amass the greatest library of sacred books. To do so, you need to have both the workers and resources to run a well-functioning scriptorium. To acquire workers and resources, you use a limited supply of donated gold. In addition, you must be on good terms with the powerful bishop, who can help you in your quest.

I like to story walking around in an old monastery's library finding interesting stories and watching old drawings from the past.

The game is simple to learn and has nasty choices. It's bidding or praying for the right books.
Knowing you opponents and bluffing and drafting new cards. But it's still fun and elegant.

In Essen I saw a wonderful board with color and skyscrapers of New York 1901. The theme and components really applied to me and me and my kids really enjoyed the theme. A perfect gateway game for family's and non-gamers. Easy to learn, good mechanics and interaction on the board.

Relive the dawn of modern New York City, the historic years that made it what it is today. Build bigger and higher skyscrapers on some of Lower Manhattan's most iconic streets. Raise one of four legendary skyscrapers — the Park Row, the Singer, the Metropolitan Life, or the majestic Woolworth — and make one of them the crown jewel of your real estate empire!

In New York 1901, the players are building skyscrapers on a map of New York's Financial District. Players take location cards from a card's display and then use 2-3 of those location cards to place Tetris-shaped building tiles on the board. They first build bronze level buildings. Later in the game those buildings can be replaced by silver level and gold level buildings.

Designer Chénier La Salle and artist Vincent Dutrait did a wonderfull Job in creating this great family game.

Under pressure, taking goods or air ... and a little luck is needed.

You are treasure divers that share the same oxygen supply from the same blue submarine. The adventure is played in three rounds. Players roll dice to move and decide when to pick up treasures. More valuable treasures are deeper, carrying treasure slows your movement and uses up more oxygen. It's you decision...




It's al in a smart small fun box

They're all rivals, but their budgets force them all to share a single rented submarine

In Codenames, two teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. Their teammates try to guess words of the right color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin.

It's fun, could be tense, easy to teach & learn, a party for the young at heart!
