Brimstone Board Game Nights for February - Santorini and Captain Sonar

Hey Windsor area gamers, come out to Brimstone Board Game Night! Meet other gamers, play some great games and maybe even win a game to bring home.

Brimstone Board Game Nights hit on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month. These events run from 5pm to 10pm and are open to all ages.

Every event will feature at least one game. There will be demo copies of the game available and someone on hand willing to teach the game so you can try before you buy.

You can win games just by coming out to play. At every Brimstone Board Game Night you earn tickets that give you a chance to win free games. Every event we will be giving away a copy of the featured game and some events will feature even more. 

Players earn 1 ticket for playing games, 1 ticket for purchasing a snack or drink, and 1 ticket for bringing 1 or more board games for people to play. Earn 5 more tickets for each game you purchase. First time players will receive 5 additional tickets.

You can find Brimstone at 1421 Tecumseh Rd. E. There is parking in back and there is a municipal lot across the street that is free after 6pm.

Feb 4th - Santorini

Amazing looking two player game that is taking the game world by storm. People are going nuts for this game. Great looking 3d board. Lots of strategy. Simple to learn, difficult to master.

Each turn consists of 2 steps:

1. Move - move one of your builders into a neighboring space. You may move your Builder Pawn on the same level, step-up one level, or step down any number of levels.

2. Build - Then construct a building level adjacent to the builder you moved. When building on top of the third level, place a dome instead, removing that space from play.

Winning the game - If either of your builders reaches the third level, you win.

Variable player powers - What makes Santorini truly special is its seamless integration of variable player powers into a pure-strategy game. Dr Hamilton has designed over 40 thematic god and hero powers, each fundamentally changing the way the game is played

This is up there with games like Hive and The Duke.

Feb 18th - Captain Sonar

If anyone would have told me that one of the best games of 2016 was going to be an updated version of Battleship I would have thought they were nuts. Well they may have been nuts but they also would have been right.

Captain sonar is a great team based large group game. It plays up to 8 players, 4 per side. Each player takes on a different role. Each team is manning a submarine trying to find and destroy the opposing teams sub.

The game can be played both turn based or real time, and I think real time is where this game shines. You really have to try this one out.
