Bumúntú has a theme inspired by African folklore. Move your pawn around the board, collecting animal tiles. The tile you begin your move on determines the movement options available to you.

 

Packed with nostalgia, Blockbuster has players guessing movies based off of a single word, quotes, and charades. In addition, there's the head-to-head round in which players must race to name more movies that fit a particular theme than their opponents. 

Bugs on Rugs is a set collection, card drafting game with open information, in which the cards that don't get drafted are as important as the cards that are.

At the beginning of each round, dice are randomly rolled and distributed on the board. On your turn you place a pawn around the edge of the board, and select a number one through six. You then collect any dice showing that number in your pawn's line of sight, and use these dice to fill jars and score points.

 

The game features a magnetic, vertical board. One player is the mummy, moving his piece around his side of the board, trying to catch the penguins on the other side. The rest of the players are treasure hunters, moving around their side of the board trying to claim treasure without being caught up in the mummy's magnetic pull.

A unique party game in which every player gets to draw and guess during each round. Players race against each other to complete their drawings and get in their guesses first. But be careful not to go too fast, because you’ll lose points for making the most incorrect guesses and if other players fail to identify your picture.

A family-friendly bluffing game in which each round a different player takes on the role of dragon. The dragon tries to guess which colored square players are most likely to move onto next in order to force them to discard their gold.

A classic two player card game in which players take turns playing cards into different expeditions. Each expedition costs money, so be careful not to overextend yourself. At the end of each round, in each expedition count up the cards you've played into it and subtract the cost of the expedition to see how many points you scored.

Players take turns, flipping cards one at a time, looking for matches, and being ready to race their opponents to claim a pair. Your match might be stolen though if a third card is drawn from the deck that matches that design: so watch out!

Draw a card and build the prompt, using the wide range of building pieces provided for you in the game. Select 'how cards' which place restrictions on you as you build in order to earn extra points. Collect enough cards to spell 'BILDER' to win the game.
