I am going to bring a deliciously devious game to CC this week.

GAME: Neue Heimat
TEACHER: Matt R
START TIME: 6:30
DURATION: 60-90 Minutes (with Teach)
# OF PLAYERS:5
URL: BGG Link (https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/32944/neue-heimat)

DESCRIPTION:
Tactical bidding game about building the highest scoring houses in three building rows. Simple rules, deep & devious strategy.

The levels are different coloured cubes with numbers from 1 to 6 on it, that are dealt via auction in each round. The first one of a new colour you purchase fixes this colour as yours for the rest of the game and the final scoring. Players also bid for additional pieces to shorten (or lengthen) the lanes and rooftops to finish the houses.
You pay with cheques, each of 1 million euros and can establish an "illegal cashbox", counting at the final scoring, too.
The game ends, when there are two rows completed. The houses on these score positive points, regarding the numbers on the levels and the rooftops, the ones in the third row are scored negative.

Tough bidding game, unforgiving and rather deep for the way it looks.

I'll be bringing out AIRLINES EUROPE.

It's the dawn of the Age of Aviation!  Europe is abuzz with fledgling airline companies trying to make a go of it.  There is money to be made in buying into those companies and helping them set up their network around Europe in this stock/economic game.

GAME: Isle of Skye
TEACHER: Kristy
START TIME: 630
DURATION: 80
# OF PLAYERS: 5
URL: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/176494/isle-skye-chieftain-king

In the tile-laying game Isle of Skye: From Chieftain to King, 2–5 players are chieftains of famous clans and want to build their kingdoms to score as many points as possible—but in each game only four of the sixteen scoring tiles will be scored.

Thanks to the scoring tiles, each game is different and leads to different tactics and strategies, but having enough money is useful no matter what else is going on. Managing that money can be tricky, though. Each turn, each player places two area tiles in front of them and sets the selling price for the tiles. Setting a high price is great, but only so long as someone actually pays the price because if no one opts to buy, then the seller must buy the tiles at the price they previously requested.

In the end, the player with the best kingdom—and not the richest player—becomes the sovereign of the island.

GAME: Coral Islands
TEACHER: Kristy
START TIME: 8:00
DURATION: 60 min.
# OF PLAYERS: 4
URL: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/244305/coral-islands

"Coral," designed by Richard Maass, sees players repopulate a shared coral reef using colourful translucent dice. Players take turns stacking dice on the board aiming to score points by completing structure cards that involve both their own dice and opponents' dice. In addition, players earn tokens representing the fish that live in the reef, which allow them to manipulate their dice or even place two dice on the same turn, generating engaging tactical and strategic tradeoffs between pursuing low-scoring easy-to-complete structure or high-scoring complex structures more likely to get blocked by an opponent, and also between earning points now or focusing on fish tokens to gain flexibility later. Sparking players to think in 3 dimensions, Coral creates a gameplay experience that feels fresh and unique. The player who earns the most points by completing structures before placing all 16 of their dice (12 in a 4-player game) is the winner!

"Islands," designed by Rohan Dargad, asks players to move around archipelago islands from sea-level heights to mountainous terrain in a concerted effort to reclaim lost land caused by rising sea levels. Players thus take the roles of conservation charities. The different coloured dice represent different geology of the islands. Each round 3 land cards are dealt which gives the active player the opportunity to move around an archipelago segment. These are overseen by conservation specialists which are asymmetric rule changes when a stack of cards is taken. Players then take and keep one of the cards from the stack to indicate their geological specialism - and move one of the dice on the archipelago a number of times based on the height of the stack of cards. Dice are continually moved around in this way , until the end of the game where players with the highest specialisms claim the most mountainous lands to score prestige points. The player with the highest prestige wins!

GAME: Lords of Waterdeep
TEACHER: Derek C.
START TIME: 6:30pm
DURATION: 120 min.
# OF PLAYERS: 2-6
URL:https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/110327/lords-waterdeep


In Lords of Waterdeep, a strategy board game for 2-6 players, you take on the role of one of the masked Lords of Waterdeep, secret rulers of the city. Through your agents, you recruit adventurers to go on quests on your behalf, earning rewards and increasing your influence over the city. Expand the city by purchasing new buildings that open up new actions on the board, and hinder – or help – the other lords by playing Intrigue cards to enact your carefully laid plans.

During the course of play, you may gain points or resources through completing quests, constructing buildings, playing intrigue cards or having other players utilize the buildings you have constructed. At the end of 8 rounds of play, the player who has accrued the most points wins the game.


I will bring out an old classic that is an all time favourite.  Will incorporate the Undermountain module from the Scoundrels of Skullport expansion into the game.
