Description Players choose a secondary "target" color (orange, green or purple) and then use primary colored tiles to blend colors and get three of their target-colored tiles in a row (either vertical, horizontal or diagonal). The target audience are those people who want to have an easy introduction on the way the stock exchange works. Hippo Hopp consists of 28 Hippo cards with a number between 1 and 8. A circle of 19 cards is placed face up and the remaining 9 are placed face down as a draw pile. Once players have had a chance to memorise the circle, all cards are placed face down.
Comments
Sounds interesting. I may be willing to trade for a copy. My big gripe - once assembled, the game can't be pulled apart to put it back in the box unless you break it.
This game is a joke. Nice bits though.

Description From the publisher: "Test your skills in categories of food, destinations, pop culture and much more with Getta Letter, a fast-thinking, letter-flipping category game where players race to determine the most words from A to Z in a particular category." But when they finally meet the troll both of them take the run back home. Each player tries to run through a water landscape with ice floes as fast as possible and to reach the finish fields first. McClellan's command style was an important part of why this did not occur.

Math traded.
Den.
Use two decks to play a homemade version of Aton.
Use two decks to play a homemade version of Aton. Bargain. Pretty good in a fast and frantic way.

Extremely simple, but oddly addictive and fun.

Description This is one of the firm's two games on the Hurray for Hollywood theme of 2004 (the other bring Stunt Academy). Players each control one or more Ironclads. In this tongue-twisting card game, add bugs to the king's feast by playing cards in numerical order. Players move their pieces by answering "I've never..." History How many things can you spot in ten seconds? Each weapon has been classified and given a points value so as to offer a gaming experience that is both balanced and historically accurate.
Comments
Great for Settlers. Nice theme (movies baddies attempt to take over Holywood) but less than eletrifying gameplay. Played once.
Useful extra-randomizer, plus I just like the black/white 3D dice graphics.
Bought this for Settlers of Catan and McMulti... Occasionally "locks up" when everyone knows Lara is waiting on top of the hero deck. This is pure luck.

Description A fantasy, collectible card game based on Mayfair Games's classic card game, Encounters.
Comments
Humorous a bit, but the gamepace is too slow. Never played, but I love looking at the cards.
CCG.
Simple and fun, great art!
Modest graphics/presentation, and fairly abstract, but more fun than I would have expected both for this type of game (not usually my favourite) and its age.

Mechanic Roll and Move
Description A christmas themed trivia game. Each player gets a christmas card. Units are made up of five or more figures. Featuring satisfying depth and near limitless possibilities, you will discover new facets to game-play each time you join in the Conquest of Pangea. Shooting and hand to hand combat are done by comparing the weapon of the attacker with the armor of the defender, and then adding tactical factors to get a total factor, which is then cross-referenced with the number of figures in the unit that is shooting or attacking.
Comments
Rules are apparently horrible - make sure to have the FAQ when playing. I prefer Daytona 500 but this is almost as good. Nice.
I like this game a lot. Not bad, but really it does not give me the "I want to play again feeling"
Look at all those Canadian flags on this page! As they do, players struggle to be the dominant species in the various territories.

Description From the rules of play: Comes with 200 new cards (1000 new challenges). The goal… be the first to play all of your cards before someone can discombobulate you with one of 10 unique Discombobulation challenges. The game art is tennis based, but there is no real tie in with tennis in the game itself.
Comments
Swedish boardgame that is a remake of the Drakborgen, both are equally good but differ from each other in some parts!
