For game night this month, we'll be running two different games and you can choose which one you want to play.
Our first game is Barker's Row, step right up! Delight the rubes by playing the most fantastic carnival attractions in this visually impressive tabletop experience.
Barker's Row is a 2-4 player game in which you are a carnival barker trying to fill your 3D chipboard seats with "rube" meeples by playing the most fantastic Attractions. You draft these Barker cards from a community pool and play them into the Midway. Then you use those cards to play one of ~50 Attractions that will amaze and delight the rube meeples in your seats while giving you a special power to use later in the game. Stay tuned for some drafts of these Attractions, such as Lobster Boy, Goose-Necked Girl, and the Fiji Mermaid. Each time you play an Attraction, you climb higher on the Strongman Tower, making the next one harder to play, serving as an elegant and thematic catch-up mechanic. The player to first fill all their seats wins!
Our second game, Unstable Unicorns is a strategic card game about everyone’s two favorite things: Destruction and Unicorns. Designed by the creator of TeeTurtle, Unstable Unicorns features a combination of stellar artwork and carefully calibrated gameplay for an infuriatingly magical experience.
You start with a Baby Unicorn in your Stable. SO CUTE!
But don't get too attached, because even Baby Unicorns aren't safe in this game! There are over 20 Magical Unicorns to collect, and each has a special power. Build your Unicorn Army as fast as you can, or be destroyed by one of your so-called friends! Seek revenge or protect your stable using your Magic! Sound easy? Not so fast. Someone could have a Neigh Card (Get it? Neigh?) and send the game into MADNESS! The first person to complete their Unicorn Army shall hereafter be known as The Righteous Ruler of All Things Magical... at least until the next game.
Never played? Not a problem, both games are relatively easy to learn.
