7. For the Gamer Who’s Got it All Part 2: SUPPLIES!
So, your gamer’s in the shop every week, right? You’re not sure what his or her massive library already contains, and you’re not sure just how many boxes of their favorite card game they’ve gotten recently, right?
We can help. SUPPLIES! We’ve got all sorts of gaming supplies, ranging from dice to dice sets to dice bags to card sleeves to card boxes to binders, and so much more!
Supplies is always a welcome addition to any gamer’s library — and there’s never enough of it, so if you’re looking for a couple of fun stocking stuffers, this is perfect!
8. For THE BETRAYAL AT HOUSE ON THE HILL fan in your life: BETRAYAL AT BALDUR’S GATE
What could be better than combining one of the best board games ever with one of the coolest DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game settings ever? Nothing! 🙂
Seriously though: if you’ve got someone in the house who’s caught up on most of their board games and needs something new, we promise: this will be a can’t miss!
The shadow of Bhaal has come over Baldur’s Gate, summoning monsters and other horrors from the darkness! As players build and explore the iconic city’s dark alleys and deadly catacombs, they must work with their fellow adventurers to survive the terrors ahead. That is, until some horrific evil turns one-or possibly more-of them against each other. Was it a mind flayer’s psionic blast or the whisperings of a deranged ghost that caused their allies to turn traitor? Players will have no choice but to keep their enemies close!
Based on the award-winning Betrayal at House on the Hill board game, Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate is sure to appeal to your board game and D&D players alike.
9. For the card-game fan in your house: LEGEND OF THE FIVE RINGS: THE CARD GAME Core Set
There’s a reason the original LEGEND OF THE FIVE RINGS is considered, no pun intended, legendary, and the new incarnation is every bit as good!
Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game is a player-influenced LCG that sees two players take on the role of one of the seven Great Clans of Rokugan, vying for military and political control of the land while maintaining Rokugan society’s strict code of honor.
10. For the Horror Fan in the House: MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS
Inspired by the popular novel At the Mountains of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft, Mountains of Madness is a new crazy creation from Rob Daviau, with illustrations from the great Miguel Coimbra (Sea of Clouds).
Imagine yourself sitting on a plane. Players have to cooperate to reach the top of the Mountain and then escape safely, but the Mountain has more than one trick up its ghastly sleeve. In horror, you realize that the higher you fly, the crazier your teammates become! In each step you take, the leader must gather the necessary equipment from all other players to keep on flying.
Quick and clear communication is the key – but how will you stick together when your team starts developing weirder and weirder behavior? Play to find out!
