Holiday shopping season is just around the corner, and while we're all spending a little more time at home for social distancing, it's a great time to pick up some board games! Whether it's for you, a family member or a friend, the folks at Twin Dragon Games have the perfect games lined up for all skill levels this holiday season.
Animal Upon Animal
(Ages 4+) Each turn a player rolls the die and either place one or two animals on to the stack of animals, passes one of his or her animals to another player for them to place, or places an animal on the table, extending the base for other players to build upon. Of course, if any pieces fall off whilst you are building, you get up to two of them back. The first player to have used all of their animals wins.
"This game, intended for children, is equally popular with adults!"
King of Tokyo
(Ages 8+) In King of Tokyo, you play mutant monsters, gigantic robots, and strange aliens—all of whom are destroying Tokyo and whacking each other in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo. The fiercest player will occupy Tokyo, and earn extra victory points, but that player can't heal and must face all the other monsters alone! In order to win the game, one must either destroy Tokyo by accumulating 20 victory points or be the only surviving monster once the fighting has ended.
"This 2 to 6 player game gives you the chance to play mutant monsters gigantic robots and other aliens - all of whom are happily whacking each other in a joyous atmosphere in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo!"
Dungeon and Dragons Adventure Begins
(Ages 10+) Step into the exciting world of D&D with the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure Begins board game! Choose your character and work together along the journey through the lands of Neverwinter, facing fantastic obstacles, battling monsters, and defeating the boss monster terrorizing the realm. The role of Dungeon Master passes from player to player with each turn, so everyone gets to be part of the storytelling.
"Dungeon and Dragons Adventure Begins is a great board game to introduce players to dungeons and dragons. Every adventure is different and every player gets to do on their turn."
(Ages 13+) Build and defend your dynasty in this exciting deck-building game! In Dominion, 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.
Chronicles of Crime
(Ages 14+) Chronicles of Crime is a cooperative game of crime investigation, mixing an app, a board game, and a touch of Virtual Reality. With the same physical components (board, locations, characters, and items), players will be able to play plenty of different scenarios and solve as many different crime stories. Players start the app, choose the scenario they want to play, and follow the story. The goal is to catch the killer of the current case in the shortest time possible.
