Wizards and witches have gathered in a secret and remote place to gather around the sacred Witchstone and regenerate its magical magnetic field.
Witchstone is a fantasy themed strategic tile-placing game, in which players must create spells in the cauldron and develop sacred energy using crystals, wand and pentacle. On their turn, each player chooses a double tile behind their screen and places it on their personal cauldron board. Doing so activates two different actions, and performs these actions in the shared central board. The goal is to maximize the effects by connecting the same symbols; this will allow you to perform the same action multiple times. But be careful because the options will not always be all available! The player who demonstrates the best witch or wizard skills during the occult procedure will be declared Keeper of the Witchstone.
Witchstone it was created by one of the most famous and productive game authors in history, Reiner Knizia, in collaboration with the eclectic game designer Martino Chiacchiera; is published by Huch & Friends and distributed in Italy by dV Giochi.

Ensemble is a connection-based cooperative party game. Players must synchronize their choices without communicating.
At the beginning of each round, each player must secretly decide which of the Memory cards on the board is best associated, in his opinion, with the Challenge card in the center of the table. To do this, he will play face down from his hand the Voting card corresponding to the position of the selected Memory card. If the majority of the players have voted for the same Memory card, the level is passed; if there is unanimity, a lost Life marker is also recovered. If, on the other hand, several votes diverge, the level is not passed and the players lose a Life token. If there are no more Life tokens, the players have lost; if, on the other hand, the ninth level is passed, the players can “sing victory”!
Ensemble reinterprets a classic and beloved mechanic in collaborative mode. Thanks to the intuitive rules and captivating illustrations, the game is a passe-partout for game nights with friends.
