What we enjoy about Lost Ruins of Arnak
- It involves placing workers and building decks. They are equally important
- The artwork is beautiful.
- Items and artefacts up top change over time, so you must adjust accordingly
- In the game, you always have many options available to you (often as many as six: go to several locations, play a card, buy a card, research). As you can only do one per turn, if you think there is an item everyone would like, you should buy it first.
- Each mechanic in itself is easy to understand.
- The cards have easy-to-understand icons.

The humans are trying to find the map to Earth, while the Cylon players merely wish to annihilate the human race. In order to lead their team to victory, players have to figure out who they can trust.

As a trader in the Istanbul bazaar, your goal is to get six rubies first (in a four-player game: five rubies). Rubies cost money and goods, and for those you need your assistants, represented by the dice.
The six icons on these dice tell you what your assistants can get for you: bazaar cards, lira, and four types of goods: cloth (red), fruit (yellow), spices (green), and jewelry (blue).
Every turn, you’ll send out 5 assistants. By combining the resulting icons and your previously saved Goods Markers, you’ll be able to collect and store resources (goods, coins, and crystals) or acquire Bazaar Cards and Mosque Tiles to get more benefits.

The “shufflebuilding” game Smash Up begins with a simple premise: take the 20-card decks of two factions, shuffle them into a deck of forty cards, then compete to crush more Bases than your opponents! Each faction involves a different gaming mechanism – the pirates move the cards, the zombies bring back the cards from the discard pile, the dinosaurs have enormous power – and each combination of factions brings a different gaming experience.
During the game, basic cards (each with their own difficulties and abilities) are at stake. You try to have the most power on the basis of your minions when the base is broken. Sounds easy? Is it easy when an opponent’s Alien-Ninja decides to tie your minions to other Bases – flat Murder them? What happens when the Pirate-Dinosaur Full Sails player and frees King Rex to trample your minions in the ground, or when wizard-zombies use their mystic power to create an outbreak, suddenly flooding minions on the base of the discard pile? Or if you were facing a Zombie-Dinosaur player instead and he created an epidemic of massive beasts at the same time?!?
When a base is smashed, each player in first, second and third place scores points. Fourth place? Sorry, brother, next time.
With eight different factions, Smash Up includes dozens of combinations to try. Pirate-Aliens play different Ninja-Aliens, for example. Which one will you use to crush your opponents?
And did we mention dinosaurs have laser beams?

Burano is an island in Venice, Italy, famous for colourful houses. The theme of this game revolves around the island, which has vibrant houses on both sides of the canal, as well as the personal décor placed by the people on the island. The houses need a fresh coat of paint in order to remain beautiful and vivid. Players use their creativity to refurbish and decorate the houses and attract tourists and local people.
To beautify these houses, players place Floor Cards on the game area to attract visits from different characters.
They will score points based on the various symbols on these cards. Players compete to score the most points.
A tower building game.
Jenga is played with 54 wooden blocks; each block is 3 times as long as it is wide, and slightly smaller in height than in width. The blocks are stacked in a tower formation; each story is three blocks placed adjacent to each other along their long side, and each story is placed perpendicular to the previous (so, for example, if the blocks in the first story are pointing north-south, the second story blocks will point east-west). There are therefore 18 stories to the Jenga tower. Since stacking the blocks neatly can be tedious, a plastic loading tray is included.
Once the tower is built, the person who built the tower moves first. Moving in Jenga consists of taking one and only one block from any story except the completed top story of the tower at the time of the turn, and placing it on the topmost story in order to complete it. Only one hand at a time may be used to remove a block; both hands can be used, but only one hand may be on the tower at a time. Blocks may be bumped to find a loose block that will not disturb the rest of the tower. Any block that is moved out of place may be left out of place if it is determined that it will knock the tower over if it is removed. The turn ends when the next person to move touches the tower, although he or she can wait 10 seconds before moving for the previous turn to end if they believe the tower will fall in that time.
The game ends when the tower falls in any significant way — in other words, any piece falls from the tower, other than the piece being knocked out to move to the top. The loser is the person who made the tower fall (i.e. whose turn it was when the tower fell); the winner is the person who moved before the loser.
The same game concept was published in 1984 by Fagus under the name “Hoppla – eins zuviel!”
According to the designer, the game was developed from Takoradi blocks/bricks. “Jenga” is Swahili for “build”.
