Do you know what a zebra looks like? Can you draw it? No, well, then this game is perfect for you! Any zebra drawing you do will be fine as long as the other players don’t think your zebra is…a car!

In Pictomania, it really doesn’t matter if you can draw well. Each player will draw a picture of a word given to them and at the same time try to guess the drawings of the other players. You don’t have time for a masterpiece – just a small doodle will suffice – and then you will have more time to guess!

The player who can doodle just a little bit while making good guesses at the other drawings will be the winner!

Article 27

Release Date: Nov 2012

$ 49.95

Your country has chosen you to protect their interests. If that means you have to bend the rules a little bit, well that’s just the cost of justice, right? In Article 27, you assume the role of one of the members of the UN Security Council, which means you wield the power of the veto. No proposal can pass when a member uses their veto, so there had better be something in the deal for you! Negotiations on the proposals can include side-deals, threats, or outright influence-peddling! But once the gavel comes down it’s time to vote, so you better have greased all the right palms with influence or your proposal is sunk! Article 27 requires no knowledge of politics or the UN to enjoy. If you like negotiation games, you’ll love Article 27! Sales Points: • An easy to play, pure negotiation game • Very fast paced, plays in ~6 minutes per player • Awesome components including a huge game board, thick cardboard player mat and player screens, 100s of wood and cardboard tokens, and a real wooden gavel! • Beautiful, colorful and funny cartoony artwork • No knowledge of politics or the UN is required at all!

Now is time to prove what you have told your friends when you all sat around and said you could do it better then the politicians Stronghold Games has done it again and give us all a chance to put our money where are mouths are.

Core Worlds: Galactic Orders

Release Date: Nov 2012

$ 34.95

In Core Worlds: Galactic Orders – the first expansion to Core Worlds, the deck-building card game of intergalactic conquest – players begin to forge alliances with the six Galactic Orders, powerful organizations that have maintained their independence in the midst of a crumbling empire. These Orders consist of the Galactic Senate, the Science Guild, the Merchant Alliance, the Mining Coalition, the Order of Knighthood, and the Mystic Brotherhood. The Galactic Orders expansion focuses on these six independent organizations and their influence upon a galaxy at war. Each Galactic Order is represented on the table by a large Galactic Order card that specifies the special power associated with that Order, and each player starts with 20 Faction Tokens that match the Faction symbols on their Starting Decks. Whenever a player deploys a Unit or plays a Tactic with a Galactic Order icon on it, he gets to place his Faction Token onto the corresponding Galactic Order card. Players must choose between leaving their Faction Tokens on the Galactic Order cards to score points at the end of the game, or removing their Faction Tokens in order to use the unique special powers associated with each Order.

I know I’m new to this Deck Building scene but I think this one sounds tactile enough to be real fun check it out along with loads of other games at Stronghold Games and see what you think.
