Gingerbread House has you building multi-level gingerbread houses in a 3x3 grid, using 2x1 domino-shaped tiles to trap fairy tale characters like the witch in Hanzel & Gretel. No rolling out dough or baking required.

You can learn how to play it tomorrow, Saturday, at Here Be Books & Games! We'll teach you how to play. Here's a little more about the game:

In Gingerbread House, each tile features symbols in four colors. Covering symbols provides you with four different types of gingerbread and special actions such as: lure a new character, acquire a staircase, or exchange two gingerbread tokens. You’ll use the gingerbread you collect to trap/acquire characters (cards). You can also place tiles on top of other tiles to form a 3D structure in front of you. Covering two of the same symbol is extremely valuable as it provides a bonus gingerbread or action.

Victory points are awarded for building the tallest structure, completing orders by discarding sets of gingerbread, as well as being the quickest to achieve certain conditions. In the end, the player with the most victory points wins.

2 to 4 players, ages 8 and up, can play Gingerbread House in about 30 minutes. Drop by and we’ll teach you how to play! In stock now at Here Be Books & Games.

Voyages of Marco Polo is a lavish strategic Euro game in which you’ll recreate Marco Polo's journey! I love this game! It's spectacularly fun and there are many road to victory. We've scheduled time to teach it tomorrow at Here Be Books & Games.

In Voyages of Marco Polo, each player takes on the role of one of the many people who worked with and around Marco Polo during his travels. You’ll usually begin your journey in Venice, but it’s up to you where you go from there.

Will you go directly to Beijing? Or would you prefer to follow the road across Sumatra? Consider carefully. The rewards at each city vary from game to game. You must also decide which contracts are worthwhile for you to complete, as well as where and when other players are likely to get in your way and adjust your plans accordingly.

Every character’s special ability seems over powered, but they really balance each other out remarkably. So, whether you play as the monk William of Rubruck, as a merchant from Tabriz, or even Kublai Khan himself, Voyages of Marco Polo is always exciting and challenging.

Voyages of Marco Polo supports 2 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, with a playtime of 20 to 25 minutes per player. Come on by and we’ll teach you how to play!

Azul: Summer Pavilion is a beautiful puzzly game in which you piece stars together to gain timely bonuses which will aid you in completing still more stars. Learn to play it this Saturday at Here Be Books & Games!

Azul: Summer Pavilion is played over six rounds. Each round, you'll draft tiles, then place them on your player board to score points. One of the six colors of tiles is wild each round.
You can choose to take all of the tiles of a non-wild color on a factory, plus one wild tile, if available. Move the rest of the tiles on that factory to the center of the table. Alternatively, you can take all tiles of a non-wild color from the center and one wild tile, if present.

After all of the tiles have been claimed, players take turns placing tiles on their individual boards. The player boards depict seven stars of different colors, each star is made up of six tile spaces numbered 1 to 6. Six of the stars are designed to hold tiles of a single color, while the seventh will be comprised of one tile of each color.

To place a tile on the blue 5, for example, you must discard five blue or wild tiles from next to your player board (with at least one blue being required), placing one blue tile in the blue 5 space and the rest in the discard tower. You score 1 point for this tile and 1 point for each tile within the star that is connected to the tile you just placed.

If you completely surround a pillar, statue, or window on your game board with tiles, you get an immediate bonus: taking 1-3 tiles from the central supply spaces and placing them next to your board. At the end of the round, you can carry over up to four tiles to the next round; discard any others, losing 1 point for each such tile.

After six rounds, you score a bonus for each of the seven stars that you've filled completely. Additionally, you score a bonus for having covered all seven spaces of value 1, 2, 3 or 4. You lose 1 point for each unused tile. The player with the most points wins.

Azul: Summer Pavilion supports 2 to 4 players, ages 8 and up. Come on by and we’ll teach you how to play this hot, new game!

Dreamalot books in Goose Creek is moving. Speaking from experience, moving a bookstore is back breaking work. So as with many bookstore owners faced with the task of moving so many books, Cherry has come to the conclusion that she is willing to lower the price on all of her books in the store to $1 so she does not have to move as many.
I encourage all book lovers to head over to Dreamalot books very soon and pick up some inexpensive reading material.

Dunno. Can you guys get the Call to Adventure expansion? I'd really like a copy.

Diplomacy, not the basic avalon hill version if possible
