Balloon Cup

Balloon Cup
Code: BALONCUP

In Balloon Cup, the players compete in several short balloon flights (hops) to collect the colored cubes associated with each hop. When a player has collected enough cubes of a given color, he earns the trophy card for that color. Players play their high-valued balloons on the mountains and their low-valued balloons on the plains. Players usually play their balloons on their side of the hops, but winds (and cunning) can cause them to play on their opponents side, a move that can ruin their opponents plans.

Battle Line (2017 Ed)
Ancient battles were fought in organized formations. The leaders of both sides directed their forces along the battle line to gain tactical advantage in order to overwhelm their opponent in the center, breakthrough one of his flanks, or hold their position until the time came for a decisive move. Based on Reiner Knizia's original design published in Germany as Schotten-Totten (now available from IELLO), Battle Line enhances and expands the game with more options and fun.

Kahuna
View Two priests, both followers of Kahuna magic, compete to determine who is the stronger. For the competition, they have chosen an uninhabited archipelago with twelve small islands. They have agreed to use their magical powers to build bridges linking the islands. Each link forged brings a priest closer to control of the islands bridged by the magic. When control of an island is secured, opposing bridges are destroyed, perhaps causing their opponent to lose control of one or more islands. Thus, drawing on fate and their skills, each composes a strategy designed to give them the edge they need in this fast-paced game of shifting control. Your Price: MYR85.00
