£3.90 – 1-2 Players

A solo and cooperative tile-laying game. Players will help Shahrazad tell stories to pass another night by playing tiles featuring unique takes on iconic fairy-tales to construct the best story.

Each turn players will play a single tile, then draw a tile, building a folk-tale tableau.

Placing certain story types together will grant players more points, but telling a story in the wrong order will drastically limit their options.

Agamemnon

£11.89 – 2 Players

None can defy Fate but the gods themselves. Driven by the ambition of their king, the Greeks have arrived on the shores of Troy. Some seek power; some seek revenge, while others seek the great moment in battle that will define their place in history. From veteran designer Günter Cornett, Agamemnon is a fast-paced strategy board game in which two players take the roles of ancient Greek gods during the Trojan War. By tactically deploying warriors to where they're needed across the board, each player may influence the final outcome of the battles famously detailed in Homer's Iliad. Some areas will be decided by the strength of your warriors, some by sheer weight of numbers, and others by the inspiration your heroes provide.
