La Granja: No Siesta Demo, January 14th

Stop by and try out La Granja: No Siesta from Stronghold Games with Brenda, January 14th in Bellevue! #boardgames #tabletopgames

La Granja: No Siesta is a standalone dice game following up the boardgame La Granja.

The players need to collect resources to cross them off on their scoring sheet in order to get the most victory points. They can hire helpers to use their special effects. They build a barn to store goods and sometimes they need to have a little time off and have a Siesta!

The dice game singles out the dice mechanism from the boardgame and transfers it into a much lighter game. Every round the players roll the dice and draft them until everybody has at least three dice to score.

Once a player completes the siesta track the game comes to an end. Whoever collected resources in the most effective way will win the game!

AETHER REVOLT Coming soon!

The Kaladesh Inventors’ Fair, a celebration of innovation and ingenuity, was a ruse.

For decades, Kaladesh was in the throes of an inventors’ renaissance. The governing Consulate fostered innovation and optimism. But then, at the pinnacle of this era of creativity, the Consulate cracked down, confiscating inventions and detaining many genius inventors.

The Consulate claims their actions were for the safety of the citizens, but it has become apparent that the Planeswalker Tezzeret looms behind much of the aggression. A divide is forming between the Consulate and the inventors. Where once there was a shared spirit of innovation, now there is discontent and revolt. The renegades are rising…

New Releases 1/6

Now, you can enter your own name in contention for this sprawling castle with the Ghosts of Harrenhal Chapter Pack for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game. As the War of the Five Kings has touched every corner of Westeros, you’ll find plenty of new cards in this expansion that interact with the King trait, while other cards help you counter the drastic bloodshed of Valar Morghulis. Finally, you’ll encounter plenty of iconic characters in this Chapter Pack, including Roose Bolton, Brienne of Tarth, Craster, Ser Davos Seaworth, Joffrey Baratheon, and Myrcella Baratheon.

 

It has been months since you saw the sunset city in a dream—towering minarets and domes, crossed by shadow and red light from the gently setting orb of fire that permanently rests outside the city. Since then, you’ve crossed these borders every night, searching for the city, hoping to set foot inside. You have seen wonders beyond compare: the sacred cats of Ulthar and the turquoise and tourmaline city of Celephaïs that rests beneath the gingko-covered slopes of Mount Aran. You have all but abandoned your waking life, eating less and less, spending more and more time asleep. But tonight is different. There, on the silvery, blade-thin horizon between wakefulness and sleep, the black ships from the moon have finally caught up to you.

Descend into a world of sleep and splendor with The Dreamlands, the latest expansion for Eldritch Horror. For the first time, you have the chance to walk upon the sweet-smelling grass of the Enchanted Wood, travel into the Underworld, or sail off the edge of the world and voyage to the moon—this expansion introduces an entirely new side board, portraying the mystical, ethereal Dreamlands. As the realm of dreams leaks into our waking world, you’ll find eight new investigators that stand united against two insidious Ancient Ones: Altach-Nacha the Dreamweaver and Hypnos, the Lord of Sleep. With a massive array of new Spells, Conditions, Assets, Adventures, Mythos cards, and encounters for every location, The Dreamlands promises adventures unmatched by anything in the waking world.

Monster Menagerie II brings you a vast array of all-new sculpts representing challenges for your heroes to overcome, and allies to fight by your side. Collect all 44 figures in the sixth set releasing in this exciting line of D&D miniatures, Icons of the Realms. Featuring a vast array of all-new sculpts, D&D Icons of the Realms: Monster Menagerie II includes the challenging monsters that your heroes will need to overcome and the loyal allies that have come to fight by your side.

Learn the secrets of the sphinxes from the Androsphinx as it tests your courage and valor. Or face the Mind Flayer, the scourge of sentient creatures across the Forgotten Realms. Or stand toe-to-toe with the powerful Iron Golem, knowing no ambitions, needing no sustenance, feeling no pain, and having no remorse.

Will your heroes rise to the challenge?

The Battles of Khalkhin-Gol is designed for 2 to 8 players. Each oversized map is ready-to-play with all terrain, obstacles, and unit positions pre-printed so players can simply add the figures and play. The various scenarios of the expansion require one copy of Memoir ’44 (two for the Overlord scenarios), as well as the Terrain Pack, Eastern Front, and Pacific Theater expansions. The Equipment Pack and Winter Wars expansions are also recommended.
