Board Game Pick of the Week — Munchkin
Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run.
Admit it. You love it.
This award-winning card game, designed by Steve Jackson, captures the essence of the dungeon experience… with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items. And what magic items! Don the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm… or maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. Start by slaughtering the Potted Plant and the Drooling Slime, and work your way up to the Plutonium Dragon…
Munchkin is a satirical card game based on the clichés and oddities of Dungeons and Dragons and other role-playing games. Each player starts at level 1 and the winner is the first player to reach level 10. Players can acquire familiar D&D style character classes during the game which determine to some extent the cards they can play.
There are two types of cards - treasure and encounters. Each turn the current players ‘kicks down the door’ - drawing an encounter card from the deck. Usually this will involve battling a monster. Monsters have their own levels and players must try and overcome it using the levels, weapons and powers they have acquired during the game or run away. Other players can chose to help the player or hinder by adding extra monsters to the encounter. Defeating a monster will usually result in drawing treasure cards and acquiring levels. Being defeated by a monster results in “bad stuff” which usually involves losing levels and treasure.

Board Game Pick of the Week — Adventure Time Cards Wars
Adventure Time: Card Wars is the most epic card game ever found in the Land of Ooo, or anywhere for that matter! In the Adventure Timeepisode “Card Wars”, Jake begs Finn to play his favorite trading card game. Finn accepts, despite warnings from Beemo on how very competitive Jake can be while playing the game. Finn and Jake battle against each other to decide who will be the Dweeb and who will be the Cool Guy.
Now fans can play the actual Card Wars game in Adventure Time: Card Wars - Finn vs. Jake, with all of the action taking place in four combat lanes. Jake’s corn-themed deck features creatures from the episode such as the powerful Husker Knights, the intimidating Legion of Earlings, the heroic Archer Dan and many more! Finn’s “Blue Plains” deck features creatures from the episode such as the wise Ancient Scholar, the aptly named Cool Dog, and the most fearsome critter of all – The Pig!
Each turn, a player has two Action Points to spend on Creatures, Spells, and Locations, and cards cost between 0 and 2 Action Points to play. When you summon a Creature, you choose which lane you want to place it in; some Creatures have FLOOP abilities that allow you to use their special abilities. When you attack with a Creature down a lane, you might find an opposing Creature, or you might get to deal your damage straight to your opponent’s Hit Points. Reduce your opponent’s Hit Points from 25 to 0 and you’re the Cool Guy (and you win the game)!
Each Card Wars starter set has a pair of different forty-card decks and is ready to play right out of the box. Mix the decks together to come up with your own righteous combos!

Board Game Pick of the Week — One Night: Ultimate Werewolf
No moderator, no elimination, ten-minute games.
One Night Ultimate Werewolf is a fast game for 3-10 players in which everyone gets a role: One of the dastardly werewolves, the tricky troublemaker, the helpful seer, or one of a dozen different characters, each with a special ability. In the course of a single morning, your village will decide who is a werewolf…because all it takes is lynching one werewolf to win!
Because One Night Ultimate Werewolf is so fast, fun, and engaging, you’ll want to play it again and again, and no two games are ever the same.
One Night: Ultimate Werewolf is just one of the many games that we play at our weekly board game nights, every Thursday at 6:00!

Board Game Pick of the Week: Guillotine
So this week’s board game might actually be more of a card game, but it’s still fun nonetheless.  
The French Revolution is famous in part for the use of the guillotine to put nobles to death, and this is the macabre subject of this light card game. As executioners pandering to the masses, the players are trying to behead the least popular nobles. Each day the nobles are lined up and players take turns killing the ones at the front of the line until all the nobles are gone.  However, players are given cards which will manipulate the line order right before ‘harvesting,’ which is what makes the game interesting. You want top bragging rights, so you’d better collect the most prestigious noggins. Will you be skillful enough to bribe the guards and collect Marie Antoinette? Or will you lose points for beheading the Hero of the People. After three days worth of chopping, the highest total carries the day. 
Guillotine is just one of the many board games that we play every Thursday night at Parker, Banner, Kent & Wayne.

Board Game Pick of the Week — Snake Oil
In the Old West, the wily snake oil salesman had a special talent, getting the most skeptical customers to buy the most dubious products. Now it’s your turn! Invent your own zany two-word products – Rumor Mirror! Burp Balloon! – and sell them to all types of wacky customers. If the round’s customer buys your product, you win!
To set up Snake Oil, each player takes six purple word cards. The customer for the round draws a red customer card and announces it. Inventors quickly combine two purple word cards from their hand to form a crazy new product to sell to that customer. When ready, they put their two word cards face down on the table. In clockwise order, each inventor quickly pitches his or her product directly to the customer. The customer can end any pitch that goes longer than thirty seconds. The customer decides which product to buy and gives the inventor of that product the round’s customer card as the prize. Inventors discard all used word cards and take two new word cards each. The player to the left of the customer becomes the next round’s customer. Play repeats until each player has been the customer once.
Whoever collects the most customer cards wins.

We play Snake Oil and tons of other awesome games every Thursday @ 6:00 at PBKW!

International Tabletop Day!

International TableTop Day was a success at Parker, Banner, Kent & Wayne. I think it’s safe to say that everyone who attended came out a winner. We had over 70 people playing board games throughout the day.

Gamers indulged in all types of board games such as Games of Thrones, Elder Sign, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Takenoko, Tsuro, Avalon, and tons more.

This day was set aside for people to come together and celebrate their love for tabletop games and needless to say, that mission was accomplished. One thing that everyone seemed to love (and how could they not?) was the amount of free games and promos that we were able to give away thanks to Geek & Sundry. Just about everyone who showed up to International TableTop Day went home with something special.

Overall, International TableTop Day was a total blast and everyone at Parker, Banner, Kent & Wayne is already looking forward to next year!
