Game Arrivals: March 10th – 16th

Here are this week’s game arrivals – – some new and some restocks.

Monster Factory
Rio Grande Games

Newly released from Rio Grande Games and designed by Donald Vaccarino  (Dominion, Kingdom Buillder, & Infiltration) and Nina Paley is Monster Factory, a silly monster-building game aimed at kids 5 and up.  

In Monster Factory players create their own goofy looking monster and possibly some minions.  Each player take turns drawing and placing tiles, either adding to their own monsters or to those of their opponents.  The goal is to make a big monster, but not so big that it goes unfinished.

We have a copy open in our Demo Game Library so come in and try it out.
