Last Minute Gift Ideas–Fun Games for the Entire Family




The game that has taken Europe by storm is coming to America!  With more than two million games sold, Jungle Speed is set to capture America’s imagination with its fast pace and exciting game play.  Developed by Asmodee, the European leader in the distribution of board games and collectible card games, Jungle Speed is an exciting game of quick thinking and lightning fast reflexes.  Think classic card games Spoons or WAR, embellish the cards with abstract shapes and colors and add a call to action to race opponents to a totem.  Each player must be spot-on, in between outbursts of laughter and action!  Jungle Speed features easy-to-learn play for entertaining and animated fun for the entire family.  $19.99/8+




Dixit is an exciting game of storytelling through imagination and clues. Artistically designed cards tell a different story for every individual and put creativity to the test! To start, each player receives six cards.  One player is selected as the storyteller for the round. As players tell stories, they earn points to move individually colored rabbit icons around a scoring track to the finish line. The scoring system is where all the subtlety of Dixit is expressed. The storyteller needs to be subtle enough in the clue he gives so at least one player (but not all) understand which is his card and vote for his card.  $34.99/8+
