Shipping for both is under $8.

(There's also Trial of the Temples, $10/MSRP 40, but it's a preorder to be shipped sometime in the next few months.)

What do you get in these boxes? I unpacked mine last night:

Good for families. Be aware that you can mess with other people's plans (everyone loads
their cubes onto ships, but any player can send any ship to the destination of their choice
once it's full enough, even if they have no cubes on it, allowing for rather de/malicious moves).

I have not watched this ~4-minute how-to-play video:

Codenames Disney is a form of the game with the ability to play using either words or images as each card
is double-sided (both Disney-themed) and with the option to use a grid of only 16 cards and no Assassin.

Villainous is about being a Disney villain, trying to achieve your unique goals on your own personal
board and activating your opponents' antagonist decks to have their heroes interfere with them.
Any box can be bought and played on its own or in combination with villains from other boxes.
The base box has 4 playable villains while the others have 3.
(There's also a Marvel version, which is neither compatible with the Disney ones nor included in the B2GO.)

Amazon & Walmart Deals / Wal-Mart - Dixit family game - 23.99 (~30% off)
« on: November 29, 2020, 04:03:04 PM »
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Dixit-Family-Strategy-Game/30655400

As can be seen here, the price is generally 35.99 - https://boardgameprices.com/prices/dixit.

In each round:
1. The active player gives an auditory clue (no further limits) about the card they have
secretly selected from their hand (the game's cards feature surreal/dreamlike imagery).
2. All other players submit a card to be mixed with the selected card.
3. All other players simultaneously guess which card was the active player's.
Points are awarded for correct guesses and for having your card chosen by other players (but if
all other players guess the active player's card, their clue was too obvious and they get no points.)
(Hands are refilled after each round.)

Photosynthesis $23.75 (47%)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074K5W5N5/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

No-luck, position-based game about trying to grow your trees in the best parts of the forest.
Use light as currency to grow your trees larger and spread their seeds farther, managing your
available stock of trees of different sizes. As the sun moves around the board, trees that are
exposed to it collect light for their owners. The larger the tree, the more light it collects and
the larger the shadow it casts over its neighbors, but trees must eventually die to score.


Fuse $16.65 (45%)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018AVE3HG/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
(Possibly not for Shabbos - timed.)
A real-time co-operative game that lasts 10 minutes, after which you've won or lost. Players have bomb cards in front
of them that require certain dice to be placed on them (sometimes in particular ways) to defuse them. In each round,
as many dice as there are players are drawn from a bag and rolled. The players must then decide who will take which
die - each player must take one and only one, or remaining dice will be rerolled and may cause previously placed dice
to be removed from bombs. Completed bombs have their dice returned to the bag and are replaced with new bombs.
Can you get through enough bombs in time?


Kingdomino 12.79 (36%)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N3A4070/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Simple tile-drafting and tile-placement game for 2-4 players. In each round, players draft
domino-ish tiles by placing tokens on them, with better tiles forcing a later turn order position
in the next round, then add the tiles they drafted last round to their growing personal 5x5 board.
Areas of the same color will score at the end, with the number of crowns in them determining
their value (each square of an area is worth 1 point for each crown in the area).


Decrypto $14.49 (37%)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0765KL7B8/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

(Not for Shabbos.) Played in teams. Players take turns giving their teammates clues toward words only their
team knows. Both teams guess which words are being guessed at (by number) - the first team to correctly
guess their opponent's numbers twice wins, and a team also wins if the opposing team fails twice to guess
their own numbers. (Each team has 4 words, numbered 1-4, and the clue-giver draws a card with 3 numbers
in any order on it. So if you can figure out that their word #3 is always getting water-related clues... etc.)
(4, 6, or 8 players.)


The Crew $9.99 (33%)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B084GP7X3P/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
A new twist on trick-taking (think Hearts, Spades). You play cooperatively, trying to
fulfill conditions such as certain players taking certain cards, and trying to make good
use of each player's once-per-round allowance for some communication about what
they're holding in one suit. There are about 50 scenarios.
(Box says 2-5 players, but 3 and 4 work best according to the community.)
(3-minute overview video)


Lost Cities $10.45 (30%)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KLWPHFF/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Light 2-player card game. Each turn, you must play onto one of your colored stacks of
cards or onto a public discard pile, making the card available to your opponent. Your stacks
have a negative score once you start them that you have to build out of, but you must
always play a higher card, and score-multiplier cards must be placed before any cards
that actually contribute to scoring. Quick and tense. Subject to luck.


Lanterns: The Harvest Festival $19.79 (30%)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UG238LK/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Light family game. On their turns, players add a card with colored edges to the developing board
and colored cards are given out to the players those edges point to. Match edges and you get an
extra card of those colors. Sets of the colored cards can be traded in for points. (2-4 players.)


Exit: The Game series - "The Abandoned Cabin" and other titles $10.45 (30% or so)

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WP2G52Z/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
(Not for Shabbos.) A popular line of "escape room in a box" puzzles. Not sure what
else to say about them.


Gloomhaven $85.00 (39%)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LZXVN4P/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
You almost certainly don't want this. It's more a video-game-style RPG made
of cardboard than a board game. This is mostly an excuse to post this image:
