Our December GiaBOXes!

Our December GiaBOXes

Hello GiaBOXers!

After some problems with our suppliers to get the board games we wanted for you, we finally manage to get them all! It seems Christmas is a really good time for board games sellers and a lot of board games were out of stock each day so we had to be very quick each morning to order them. It seemed like a proper race!

We are really happy some families will be enjoying their new board games this Christmas. Time in family, playing and having fun together, has been always our greatest aim.

Here you can find the board games included in our December Boxes:

For the little ones:
This month we had the opportunity of sending some board games for a family who had two children with a very different age. It was difficult to find board games suitable for both ages but we thought these board games were a good selection to engage both siblings.

My first Carcassonne

My first Carcassonne

My first Carcassonne 2 to 4 players – 10-20 minutes.

My first Carcassonne is a tile placement board game playable from 4 years old with really simple mechanics.
Following the tradition of Carcassonne on the 14th July, when the animals are set free, children will have to return all the animals to their farmyards before dust. For that, players will need to make decisions to place all their meeples on the board.

Rhino Hero

Rhino Hero

Rhino Hero- 2 to 5 players – 5-15 minutes.

Rhino Hero is a stacking board game playable from 5 years old but really fun for the whole family.
You will need to demonstrate your skills stacking your cards while you help Super Rhino to climb your building.
Will you get it?

Family time!
We have chosen the following board games for some families who have children between 8 and 14 years old.

7 wonders

7 wonders

7 Wonders – 2 to 7 players – 30 minutes.

A classic among classics and a really good board game! Winner of the Kennerspiel des Jahres (expert game of the year) in 2011.
On this occasion, you are the leader of one of the 7 great cities of the Ancient World and you will need to produce or collect resources and to transform them into buildings and technological innovation to make your civilization more advanced and powerful.
Will you get your city to transcend to future times?

Takenoko

Takenoko

Takenoko – 2-4 players – 45 minutes.

Yes! We have sent this board game again because we are in love with the little panda. Does this mean everybody will be receiving it? Of course not! We know a wide selection of family games we will be sending in the following boxes, but Takenoko is special for us. If you want to see a little description of it, check our previous GiaBOXes here.

Love Letter Card Game

Love Letter Card Game

Love Letter Card Game – 2 to 4 players – 20 minutes.

Love Letter Card Game has been our ‘Love Letter’ choice for this month. It is a quick deduction family game in which you are a young man trying to woo the princess of Tempest.
Will you get your love letter across to the sad princess and conquer her? You should make sure that it is the person closest to the princess who has your letter at the end of the day, so you can deliver it first to the princess.

Geeky time!

Cuthroat Kingdoms

Cuthroat Kingdoms

Cutthroat Kingdoms – 3 to 6 players – 90-150 minutes.

Cutthroat Kingdom is a social board game where you will need to make strategic decisions.
On this occasion, you will be a lord or lady of one of the six eminent Houses in the Kingdom of Aurum trying to have the control of the land while you fight against a great plague that has now turned upon the people, ravaging the kingdom for which you war.
You will need to negotiate with other Houses, but also make some strategies against them, to finally get the throne of the Kingdom of Aurum. Will you get it?

Two Players!

Star Realms Colony Wars

Star Realms Colony Wars

Star Realms Colony Wars – 2 players – 20 minutes.

Star Realms Colony Wars is a deckbuilding game that can be used either as an expansion for Star Realms or as a standalone cardgame.
This time you have to create your own star kingdom. Build your armada through star commerce, then use your powerful fleets and spaceships to protect what is yours and take over what is not!

We hope you enjoy your new board games!
