International Game Night!
Bored with basic board games? Switch it up with international game night! Play what people are playing in Kyoto, Vladivostok and Vienna:
In Passtally, created by Japanese game designer Masaki Suga (須賀 正樹), you build connections. Take turns placing tiles on the game board to create a line connecting your player markers. The more tiles the line passes through, and the higher those tiles are stacked, the more points you score! Easy to learn.
Maracaibo, created by Austrian game designer Alexander Pfister, is a hit from Poland to Malaysia because who doesn’t want to sail around the 17th-century Caribbean, collecting coins and fighting the French? Let’s get going!
Spyfall, from the mind of Ukrainian designer Alexandr Ushan, is a party game unlike any other, one in which you get to be a spy and try to understand what's going on around you. You don’t want to get caught, so you need to get your cover story straight. A game of guessing, suspicion and bluffing. Fun to play, easy to learn.
Azul is as popular in Germany as David Hasselhoff. Created by German board game designer Michael Kiesling, Azul turns two to four players into tile-laying artisans who compete to decorate the walls of a Portuguese royal palace with beautiful azulejos. Simple rules, great strategy, easy to learn.
Catan is the iconic civilization-building game created by German designer Klaus Teuber, in which players collect resources to create settlements, cities, and roads to earn points. Catan is known for popularizing Eurogames, which require more strategy than luck and don’t boot players out of a game. Catan is strategic, interactive, and fun to play. Mobile game available via Android and iOS.comments powered by Disqus
