In Amber, players take the role of the barons, and their goal is to build trade routes that connect their castles to the villages where the amber is collected, and to the other barons’ castles where it is traded. To this end, players build roads through the wilderness – placing one tile each turn in the shared playing area – which will allow their buyers to reach the sources of the amber. Since all buyers can use the roads, however, it’s important to have suitable connections with the road networks built by others. The baron whose castle is connected with the greatest number of villages and castles will become the richest and most respected Lord of the new land.

This looks like a nice easy game to sit down and play with the kids thanks, Rebel Publishing for giving me more family time.

In Slavika, players are the heads of powerful families in the fantastic world of Slavika. Each player has six heroes, who will be sent to different regions, where they will fight monsters threatening the villagers. The more a player’s heroes help defeat the monsters, the more glory is won for their family. The game lasts several months, until the princess is able to complete the ritual and renew the power of the amulet. At that time the family with the most glory points earns the right to the hand of the princess and wins the game.

This sounds like a great game to play with some friends Rebel Publishing gave me another reason to have a game night.

Dixit Jinx

$ 14.99

Release date: Oct. 19th 2012

Jinx is a new Game in the Dixit family but unlike the original game the drawings are not realistic illustrations depicting scenes but images halfway between abstraction and figuration. During the game 9 cards are exposed in a square 3×3. The active player draws a locator map that will show him one of the nine cards with which he will play. This location is held secret. The player must now speak, sing, act out something that makes thinking about this card just like in “Dixit”. The other players go around and point to the card they think is correct but beware! Only one player can point a given card. Once a player has chosen the right card, the turn stops (although some have not chosen). The player who finds the right card keeps it (each card gives a victory point). Players who erred give their cards to the player active. But if neither player gets it right card, the active player must return one of the cards previously won.
