Kitty Paw – GaGa Games

What happens when seven cats run into cardboard boxes? Well, a crazy game of kitty hide-and-seek!

Kitty Paw is a dexterity and reaction game. Players try to be the first to complete the kitty combinations shown on the Kitty cards to score victory points (VP). The player with the most VP in the end wins.

Each player gets one Kitty card in each round and tries to be the first to create the patterns shown on the cards. Since this is a recognize-and-react game, all players act simultaneously. In more detail:

  1. All players put one hand in the center of the table and shout out “Kitty Paw!” to start the game.
  2. Each player grabs one Kitty card from the row and places it in front of themselves. Then players grab Kitty tiles from the center of the table and arrange them to match the patterns shown on their own Kitty card.
  3. Using only one hand, the “Kitty Paw” they placed in the center of the table at the start of the game, players grab only one Kitty tile at a time instead of grabbing a bunch of tiles.
  4. If any player thinks that she has completed the pattern on her Kitty card, she shouts out “Meow!” and performs the “Lucky Cat” gesture.

Colony – Bézier Games, Inc.

The Game Shoppe will be receiving advanced copies of Colony on October 21st. Stop by and try out the demo copy we will have, as well as the Envoy demos we’ll have scheduled this month and next. In addition to the advanced copies, we will have promos available for those that purchase Colony between now and the official release date of November 9th.

In Colony, each player constructs and upgrades buildings, while managing resources to grow their fledgling colony. In a clever twist, dice are used as resources, with each side/number representing a different resource. Some resources are stable, allowing them to be stored between turns, while others must be used right away. Buildings provide new capabilities, such as increased production, resource manipulation, and additional victory points. Using dice-as-resources facilitates a dynamic, ever-changing resources management mini-game while players work to earn victory points by adding building to their tableau on their way to victory.

Colony includes 28 different building card types, of which only seven are used each game in addition to the fixed buildings that are used each time that you play.

The house on the hill has a wicked reputation. Those who dare to darken its door often leave steeped in madness and despair — if they leave at all.

Now the horror reaches new heights with Widow’s Walk, the first-ever expansion for the critically acclaimed board game Betrayal at House on the Hill. The house is expanded with the addition of twenty new rooms, including the roof, a previously unexplored floor. Also in its halls you will find new monsters, items, omens, events, and fifty brand-new haunts, penned by lead developer Mike Selinker’s all-star cast of contributors from the world of gaming and entertainment. In Widow’s Walk, terror and panic are taken to a whole new level.

Enter if you dare. Exit if you can…


Four Gods is a real-time tile-laying game in which players create a world — one tile at a time — before laying claim to one of the four gods of their world and attempting to win followers by sending prophets into that world.

In more detail, players sit outside of a cardboard frame that represents the limits of the world. Each player starts with two randomly-drawn tiles in hand, with each double-sided tile depicting 1-3 types of landscape out of the four types present in the world.




Legendary: Deadpool, Five new heroes! Four new schemes! Two new villain groups! Two new masterminds! One insanely fun expansion!

The court has a longstanding, dysfunctional relationship with the material plane and recently stronger connections have occurred allowing denizens of the material plane to infiltrate or get snared in the complex happening in the Seelie Court. This setting captures the magic and intrigue of that dream world.





Eight Epics is a cooperative dice game in which the heroic players must overcome unprecedented crises through the powers available to them and the ability to roll dice. A hero’s capacity for heroics is finite, however, so you need to prevent the disaster before you run out of life.

Seafall – IronWall Games, available NOW!

SeaFall is a 4X-inspired game (without player elimination/extermination) set in an “age of sail” world reminiscent of our world.

In SeaFall, the world is starting to claw its way out of a dark age and has begun to rediscover seafaring technology. Players take on the role of a mainland empire that consults with a consortium of advisors to discover new islands, explore those islands, develop trade, send out raiding parties, take part in ship-to-ship combat, and more. As in Risk Legacy and Pandemic Legacy, co-designed by Rob Daviau, SeaFall evolves as the game is played, setting their grudges into the history of the game and building a different narrative at every table as players open up the world.
