New Arrival - Era: Medieval Age
Era: Medieval Age is the spiritual successor to Roll Through The Ages, the pioneer for roll-and-write-style games. Era is a pioneer for roll-and-build-style games!

In Era, players compete to build the most prosperous city. Your dice represent different classes of medieval society. The "build” comes into play when you construct your own unique city on your player board, using three-dimensional components such as walls, keeps, farms, and other elements.

The player interaction in Era: Medieval Age further enhances the challenge. Will you suffer extortion? Scorched earth? Disease? This is the Medieval Age, right? Speaking of which, Era is just the first of a new series of stand-alone roll-and-build games from Matt Leacock and eggertspiele!

1 to 4 players, ages 8 and up, can play Era: Medieval Age in 45 to 60 minutes. In stock now at Here Be Books & Games.

New Arrival - Ecos: The First Continent
What if the formation of Earth had gone differently?

In Ecos: First Continent, players are forces of nature molding the planet, but with competing visions of its grandeur. You have the chance to create a part of the world, similar but different to the one we know. Which landscapes, habitats, and species thrive is up to you.

Game play in Ecos is simultaneous. Each round, one player reveals element tokens from the element bag, giving all players the opportunity to complete a card from their tableau and shape the continent to their own purpose. Elements that cannot be used can be converted into energy cubes or additional cards in hand or they can be added to your tableau to give you greater options as the game evolves.

Mountain ranges, jungle, rivers, seas, islands and savanna, each with their own fauna, all lie within the scope of the players’ options.

Ecos supports 2 to 6 players, ages 14 and up. Playtime is 45 to 75 minutes. In stock now at Here Be Books & Games.

New Arrival - Egizia: Shifting Sands. Play the original with us tonight at Virtual Game Night!!!

Egizia: Shifting Sands is an updated version of the beloved strategy game Egizia. Players travel down the Nile, placing boats as they go, to collect resources that will help them construct some of Egypt's most famous monuments. With new monuments to build, new cards to collect, and a constantly shifting river, Egizia: Shifting Sands is a streamlined, modern update that both longtime fans and new players can easily pick up and enjoy.

Egizia: Shifting Sands is played over 5 rounds consisting of several phases each. In the placement phase, players take turns placing their ships along the Nile. Each ship you place not only blocks your opponents from choosing that same action or card (except monuments, where multiple players can reserve the right to build), but also forces you to place your next ship below the one you just placed (unless you’ve unlocked a power that allows you to break that rule).

When everyone has placed all the ships they can, y’all have to feed your workers with the grain produced in your fields. The production of each field is based on the floods of the Nile, so some fields may not provide grain each turn. If you don’t have enough grain to feed all of your workers, you must buy the missing grain with victory points.

After everyone’s been fed, you can collect stone from the quarries you own and use it, along with the manpower of your workers, to build at the monuments you stopped at on your journey down the Nile.

This new edition of Egizia introduces a new monument: the Colonnade. The more columns you build in the Colonnade, the better powers you unlock to help you on the river. For example, once per turn you can place a ship on an already occupied river space or upstream from your last placement or gain an extra point each time you place bricks in a monument. The rewards available in the Colonnade vary from game to game, providing new strategies each time you play.

Below the Colonnade, where the graves once stood, lie the mysterious statues - another new monument. These tiny build sites are less expensive than other monuments, yet hold the potential for high reward. You must plan early, as you can only place one brick in a statue per round, and each level you build has more strenuous requirements to earn endgame bonuses.

Egizia: Shifting Sands inspires all of the painstaking risk/reward decisions of the original Egizia, while adding new depths of strategy, balance, and gameplay that provide a fresh twist on a timeless classic.

2 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, can play Egizia: Shifting Sands in about 90 minutes. In stock now at HBB&G. We also acquired a copy for our demo game library.

Here’s why we ask you to wear masks at the store - and anywhere you’re around people really.

Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Please.

KHQ Kevin Kim
Mask on? Mask off? Watch, then decide for yourself.

Huge shout out to Providence Sacred Heart and Holy Family/Providence Health Care, Eastern Washington for working with us on this story!

Full disclaimer: this is a demonstration about droplets, not about how a virus (i.e. COVID-19) behaves or transmits. As Dr. Rich David said, "We used bacteria to show where the droplets go... The bacteria show where your secretions came from... These spots on the plates we're seeing, those are colonies of thousands of millions of bacteria that have just divided enough and multipled enough that we can actually visually see them on the plate."

tl;dr - Droplets transmit COVID-19. This is a demonstration on droplets.
