B415: Dominion. In this new Rio Grande game, each player starts with an identical, very small deck of cards. In the center of the table is a selection of other cards the players can "buy" as they can afford them. Through their selection of cards to buy, and how they play their hands as they draw them, the players construct their deck on the fly, striving for the most efficient path to the precious victory points by game end. Dominion is not a CCG, but the play of the game is similar to the construction and play of a CCG deck. The game comes complete with roughly 500 cards. You select 10 of the 25 Kingdom card types to include in any given play - leading to immense variety. Friday, 8:00PM - 10:00PM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Fun, All Ages.

In a game with this little structure, it's possible for everyone to gang up on one unlucky soul, or for the damage to be fairly evenly spread. Either way, the last family standing is victorious.

B417: Medici. Another Reiner Knizia standby, this game plays very well with varying numbers of people.

Each turn the current player turns up one to three cards for all the players to bid on, with the highest bid taking all cards. The cards denote a commodity type and quantity/value. The round ends when each player's ships are full, or the commodity card deck is exhausted. After each round, points are awarded to each player having the most of a given commodity, and to the one with the most valuable total "cargo load".

E651: FlatOut 2. FlatOut was an enjoyable demolition derby-style racer best known for its destructible cars and environments, and for the fact that its accident-prone ragdoll drivers were averse to seatbelts. If you're familiar with FlatOut, you'll know that all 16 of the game's highly destructible vehicles looked pretty beaten up before you got anywhere near them. FlatOut 2 will feature more than 35 different vehicles, and although the game's "derby class" wheels will look every bit as trashed as those in the original game, your progression into the new "race class" and "street class" events will unlock a number of much shinier and more roadworthy cars. Every time you lose control, you will truly feel the weight of the car as it collides with and destroys a barn, or smashes into the pack of cars ahead of you, and with 40 deformable pieces on every car sparks are guaranteed to fly!
