Game Library

We are working on posting up a listing of the games in the store game library into Google Docs. These are games you can play here or rent to take home for a week. So far we have a number of our Red and Blue games listed. These are light to heavy strategy games that take either less than an hour (Blue Games) or more than an hour (Red Games) to play. The list does not show if a game is currently rented or not. You will need to email us at castleperilousgames@gmail.com to inquire if a game listed in the library is out.

Munchkin Shakespeare

Steve Jackson Games did not feel the market would support a Munchkin Shakespeare game so the company decided to run a Kickstarter campaign to produce it. There is only one production run of the game so we decided to back the campaign in order to bring it to you. We brought in 14 copies of the basic game and 12 copies of the expansion set with all of the campaign add-ons and, according to Steve Jackson Games, once we sell out of them, that is it. The game is on sale today so get your copy before it “exits, pursued by a bear”.

Stocking Stuffer of the Year 2016

Since 2014, the store has selected a Stocking Stuffer of the Year. The games winning this honor have to meet three criteria:

1) cost less than $20

2) easily fit in a stocking

3) Be a lot of fun to play

This year we chose Antidote from Bellwether Games because it fits all three criteria. On several occasions, we have played the game at the store and players wanted to start another game as soon as they finished the first one. Add in the fact that the publisher, Bellwether Games, is located here in Carbondale and you can see why Antidote is our choice for Stocking Stuffer of the Year

Stocking Stuffer of the Year

 

What is the Stocking Stuffer of the Year? Each year we select a game that meets three criteria:

  1.  It is fun to play
  2. It has a small package, the better to fit into a stocking
  3. It costs less than $20

The Stocking Stuffer of the Year in 2014 was Asmodee’s Timeline, a fun game that only costs $14.99 and in which knowledge of history helps but is not necessary. 2015’s choice was Love Letter, a neat little game of bluffing that can play in less than 15 minutes.

What is 2016’s Stocking Stuffer of the Year? Check back here on Monday or listen to Scott on Talk of the Town at 1o a.m. on December 12.
