Slide Quest is a truly unique dexterity game, inspired by video games, in which players must work together to help a hero complete his quest.

Each player takes one side of the board, and must tilt the hero around, avoiding holes and completing objectives such as trapping enemies and avoiding dynamite.

Drop your piece and hope it lands true, in this simple yet challenging game that’s played with a vertical 3D board. If your piece doesn’t following the dropping rules you won’t score any points, while the higher piece the more points its worth.

Winner of the 2018 Spiel des Jahres, this tile-laying game will send you to Portugal, as players take turns selecting tiles and trying to collect the correct number to decorate their wall in specific patterns. Collect too many and you’ll lose points, collect too few each round and your opponents may out-build you!

 

Construct buildings and be the first player to reach the third level in order to win this ingeniously simple (yet immensely fun) abstract game. On your turn, move one of your builders to an adjacent space, then place a building section on an adjacent space. Block your opponents with domes to ensure that they can't win, and use your player's special ability at the right times to capture victory!

Logic and puzzles are beautifully paired in this intriguing game about figuring out the secret rule behind the structures you build.

One player is the moderator, who alone knows the secret rule. The other players build structures and the moderator informs them whether they fit the rule or not. Once you think you've figured out the rule, you may spend a guess token to find out if you're right!

 

Each round, players are secretly assigned roles of either the gods or the mortal. At the start of each round four images are placed on the table. Three of them are false; the fourth is the image the gods are trying to turn into a constellation.

Dixit meets cooperation in Mysterium, a gorgeous game about solving murders, speaking to the dead, and using your psychic powers.
 
One player is the ghost, using pictures as clues to help the other players figure out several dastardly murders.
 

Dominoes with a kingdom building twist. Each turn, connect a new domino to your existing kingdom, making sure at least one of its sides connects to a matching terrain type already in play. The game mechanics for obtaining the tiles is clever: the order of who picks first depends on which tile was previously chosen. Make sure to secure tiles with crowns- these royal treasures help to multiply the worth of your kingdom at the end of the game!

You are a team of adventurers – trapped in a cursed temple.

Together you must activate the magic gems in the temple chambers in order to banish the curse. Look out for one another. Some tasks can be accomplished only as a team – and you have only 10 minutes before the temple collapses!

Escape is a cooperative real-time game, that is not played in rounds. Instead, each player rolls as quickly and as often as he can with his five dice.
 

In this game of imagination and creative guesswork, players take turns playing the storyteller, telling a brief story based on a picture card. As the storyteller, you select a card from your hand, play it facedown, and speak a word, phrase, or sentence represented by the picture. The others play facedown the picture card from their own hand which best represents, to them, what you’ve said. The cards are shuffled and revealed, and each player votes for the image that they think inspired the storyteller’s brief tale.
