Card Games

Last night, at games night, I played, for the first time, a German card game called Sticheln. It’s viciously addictive and I can’t wait to play it again. To quote George Pletz who commented on it on Board Game Geek Sticheln is “A wicked little trick-taking game which bewitched me within a single game".

Summer is a great time for card games as they are portable and many of them can be played anywhere – on a beach blanket, picnic table or pub patio.

Post a comment about your favourite card game or let us know about any great ones we’ve missed. Post a comment THIS week and get 15% off card games in the store NEXT week. And you’ll be entered in the monthly draw for a $20.00 Minotaur Gift Certificate!

Free RPG Weekend

On Free RPG day publishers distribute free gaming goo to existing and wannabe role-playing gamers via local, independant, game stores. At Minotaur we also ran the new Dungeons & Dragons Eberon adventure all day Sunday.

We would appreciate any and all comments on the stuff on offer this year. We were disappointed by the lack of minis on offer this year, but were intrigued by the new Giest RPG from White Wolf.

As for the adventuring - what did everyone think of the new Eberon Campaign World?

P.S. Still a few free odds and ends left - if you didn't make it down this weekend, you can still pick up some stuff.
