Azul captures the beautiful aesthetics of Moorish art in a contemporary board game. Players compete as artisans decorating the walls of the Royal Palace of Evora. By carefully drafting the correct quantity and style of tiles, the most clever of artisans plan ahead to maximize the beauty of their work (and their scores!) while ensuring they wasted no supplies in the process.  Players will alternate turns taking tiles from one of the available factories or from the center pile. The number of factories scales with the number of players and each factory is populated with four azulejos tiles at the beginning of the round.  The game ends at the end of a round where at least one player has completed at least one row on the right side of their board. Players score bonus points for completed columns and rows.

Dixit
There is an old saying that every picture tells a story. Live the truth of that saying in the game Dixit, in which lovingly crafted pictures shape stories that you tell.   In this game of imagination and creative guesswork, players take turns playing the storyteller, telling a brief story based on a picture card. As the storyteller, you select a card from your hand, play it facedown, and speak a word, phrase, or sentence represented by the picture. The others play facedown the picture card from their own hand which best represents, to them, what you’ve said. The cards are shuffled and revealed, and each player votes for the image that they think inspired the storyteller’s brief tale.  The idea is to trick your opponents into guessing someone else's card - gain more points by doing this to move along the board and win the game!

Mysterium
In the 1920s, Mr. MacDowell, a gifted astrologist, immediately detected a supernatural being upon entering his new house in Scotland. He gathered eminent mediums of his time for an extraordinary séance, and they have seven hours to contact the ghost and investigate any clues that it can provide to unlock an old mystery. Unable to talk, the amnesic ghost communicates with the mediums through visions, which are represented in the game by illustrated cards. The mediums must decipher the images to help the ghost remember how he was murdered: Who did the crime? Where did it take place? Which weapon caused the death? The more the mediums cooperate and guess well, the easier it is to catch the right culprit.  Step inside, be seated, and let your intuition guide you!

Ticket To Ride FranceTicket To Ride France
Ticket To Ride France
Ticket to Ride France is an expansion which to play requires an original copy of Ticket to Ride or Ticket to Ride Europe (both sold separately).  It creates a brand new competitive element for Ticket to Ride players. The flow of the game is different from all previous versions and forces the players to rethink old strategies. Every time you draw cards, you must build track (by adding a piece of track to the board). But building track does not mean you will be able to claim that track later. You will build a lot more track than you will claim in the game, so there will be many opportunities to bluff, mislead, and be clever. In addition, there is always a chance you can claim a route that another player has built, also making it harder for the opponent to finish his network. This Ticket to Ride expansion also includes the Old West map where players develop their networks starting from their Home Cities.  Claim cities along the way or take advantage of the other companies that have donethe same.  And who knows?  Maybe you'll be able to solve the Roswell Mystery.  This expansion allows for up to 6 players (1 extra than other Ticket to Ride games).
