Now, following the assassination of the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand by Serb nationalists, the Central Powers (Germany and Austria-Hungary) are at war with the Allies (Russia, France and Britain).

Nero: Legacy of a Despot List Price: $44.95
Your Price: $34.95 (22% savings!)
It is 69 A.D., Nero, the last of the Julio-Claudian Roman Emperors, is dead. Especially in the latter years of his regime he acted as a true despot, even ordering the murder of his wife Octavia to be able to marry Poppaea Sabina. When Rome was burning in 64 A.D. he accused the Jews and the Christian population with the crime, starting the first persecution of these innocent people.
In the space of one year, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, and Vespasian, four Roman generals vied for the throne, each of them gaining their objective only, for three, to lose it as quickly as they gained it.
In Nero: Legacy of a Despot, you are a contender for Imperial power. Using your legions and political influence, your aim is to either seize and hold the Imperium by being declared Emperor, or to gather enough land and power so that, at games end, you are in position to do so.
Nero: Legacy of a Despot is an exciting strategic boardgame full of opportunities. The overall strategy is to become Emperor, stay Emperor, grab areas, and amass victory points. However, to do that, rather than take an extended overview and plan way ahead, the game requires players, instead, to react and act quickly, often making their own opportunities by playing the event cards sagaciously and timely.
Event cards include Assassins, Briberies, Bad Auguries, German Tribe Attacks, Galley Fleets, Crisis in Roma, the Praetorian Guard and many more!

HOUSE DIVIDED - THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR $45.00
A House Divided (third edition) simulates the epic struggle of the American Civil War that was fought over the twin issues of slavery and states´ rights.

Each player becomes a leader of one of these two nations and makes the strategic decisions which determine the ultimate outcome of the war. Two sides fought the Civil War, and two sides play A House Divided. This game is played on a large mounted mapboard showing America, from the Atlantic coast on the east to Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana on the west. On the map are a number of boxes, each representing a city, town, or location important to the war. The boxes are connected by transportation-lines - rivers, roads, and railroads.

Winner of Game of the Year Award 2003 in Germany!
In Granada, the year 1278, one of the most interesting projects of the Middle Ages begins - the construction of Alhambra. Now you have a chance to take part in this amazing experience, and plot the fate of this Spanish wonder. Players must decide the best way to build their Alhambra and gain victory points in the process.

ALHAMBRA - THE VIZIER'S FAVOR $24.99
This expansion for the awarding-winning game Alhambra contains four additional modules for the original game that can be used either singly or in any combination. Play is still based on the rules of the original game, and rule changes, additional rules and new equipment are explained on separate sheets for each module. This is not a stand-alone game. The original Alhambra is required for play.
The Vizier’s Favor is a module which allows the normal order of play to be interrupted for a special move: the purchase of a building tile. But this has its price - the building must be paid for with the exact money but you do not get an extra go!
The Bureaux de Change are six new playing cards which can be picked up like money cards. They make it much easier to pay exactly as if you hold one in your hand you can pay with two currencies instead of one. Unfortunately, you can only use a bureau de change card once. After that, it is placed on the discard pile.
Bonus Cards which have been played count as building tiles in the scoring rounds. As they are not normally played until later in the game, they can cause a few surprises when the scores for the buildings are awarded. However, you can only play them when you have added the building pictured on the card to your Alhambra!
There is a new kind of building for the Alhambra - the Workers’ Huts. If a workers’ hut is positioned skilfully, it can count as a maximum of three buildings of the same kind. But the workers’ huts are not only important for getting the most buildings; they also help players to plan their walls better. Unfortunately, each player can only use a maximum of three huts.
Explore a dangerous paradise in Amazonas! It's the 19th Century, and you have come to the lush tropical jungles of Amazonas in search of rare plants and animals. You must explore the twisting paths and waterways, leading your expedition from one village to another. Each village offers an opportunity to establish a new outpost. But beware - the Amazonas is not for the timid! Fearsome crocodiles lurk in the tepid waters of the rivers, and hungry jaguars stalk the twilight paths. Do not shy from such dangers too long, for the cost to build a new outpost increases the longer it takes you to reach each new village. Your funds are very limited, so speed is essential. Your sponsor has also sent you a secret directive. You must fulfill the demands of this special mission, or you will lose much of your newly earned fame! Can you face the dangers of an unknown jungle and earn fame and recognition? Or will another explorer surpass you on the way to glory?

It’s 1821, and for 250 years the Philippine Islands have been under the thumb of the Spanish crown. But in the shadow of the colonial power, self-willed natives have established secret maritime trade with neighboring islands and the Asiatic mainland. Using odd-looking punts and fragile bamboo barks, these black market traders cram their boats with nutmeg, silk, jade, and ginseng, and set sail to smuggle them into Manila. Success in each venture is uncertain, as the seaworthiness of both boats and captains is poor. To add to their woes, pirates lie in wait to plunder boats that cannot escape them. Given all this, it is not surprising that wares that reach the black markets in Manila command high prices, making the venture worth the risk for those who succeed. The black market dealers use accomplices to ensure they get the wares, bribe pilots to aid their cargoes and hinder others, and insure their cargoes against failure. And a few wealthy merchants hire pirates to attack the black market boats and secretly pocket the profits from these raids.
