There are a handful of days to go until the end of the summer, but we still have time to announce the latest news in the house Asmodee, after the feast of board games, books, librigames And role play games by Modena Play. Some of these have already been available for a few weeks, but it is right to give them the deserved prominence in this dedicated piece.
Here are the next news at the end of summer for this month of September 2021 coming out with Asmodee.
Asmodee: here are the board games of the end of summer 2021
A title to play 1vs1, in which wonderful and ephemeral Mandalas are created to collect the 6 colors on the cards. The object of the game is to get the largest collection and thus the most victory points. The authors of this title for about twenty minutes per game are Trevor Benjamin and Brett J. Gilbert.
Agricultural – All creatures large and small
Agricola in two player version. This is a revised edition, a big box that in addition to the base game brings as a dowry two expansions, animal tokens, resources and the new shaped workers. The author is obviously Uwe Rosenberg, and the average playing time is about 30 minutes.
A frantic party game for 4 players and up, to be played as a team: in their turn each player has only 90 seconds to give clues and make their teammates guess 5 different objects, being careful however that the players do not say the forbidden word. The authors of this title with a duration varying between 30 and 180 minutes are Jesper Bülow and Jonas Resting-Jeppesen.
A Party Game that can be explained in 10 seconds and that will make your mind squeeze!
1. The first player turns over a card with a letter (eg B) and says a word that does not contain that letter (eg Table);
2. The next player turns over another letter card (eg F);
3. The player must now say a word which does NOT contain either the B or the F and which is semantically linked to the previous word (Table). So, for example “Chair”!
4. It continues like this until someone makes mistakes or is left speechless!
Mistakes are paid for by taking all cards turned up to that point. At the end of the game, the player with the fewest cards is the winner!
What else to add on this party game? By now we have already learned how to play it! The author is Guillaume Sandance, each game sees 2 to 8 players compete in about a quarter of an hour.
After so many party games where competition is the heart, a collaborative is needed. In Master Word a player interprets the Guide: he will have to make the table mates guess the secret word by giving feedback on the clues provided by the Seekers; however, he will not be able to say which clues are useful for the deduction, but only their number. It is a game for 2 to 6 players, playable in 15 minutes, by Gérald Cattiaux.
Brand new and more compact version of Bruno Faidutti’s game.
The goal of the game is to build a City fit for a king! The kingdom needs a new Master Builder and players are among those who aspire to this prestigious position. By rallying local citizens and leveraging their experience, they will aim to outsmart their rivals. Only the best city will get its creator the title of Master Builder!
Citadels supports 2 to 8 players, lasting 30-60 minutes per game.
