Mountains out of Molehills

By Jim DiCamillo, check out the Watch it Played video 

Moles have traveled from all over to compete in the annual Mountain Maker tournament. In this light strategy game, competitors show their skill based on how high they can pile their Molehills, and by how many Mountains they control. The Mole that can build and control the most Mountains out of Molehills over 6 rounds will be declared the “Top Tunneler” and win the game. Features a two-level game board and full-color acrylic standees for each Mole!

Mountains Out Of Molehills is played over six rounds, and each round has four phases. In Phase 1 players take turns drafting action cards from a face up market to form a hand of 4 cards each. These actions will move Moles underground while adding Molehill pieces to the bottom of the Mountains above them.

Peacock Block

By Mark Miller, rated 8.0 on Board Game Geek 

Peacock Block is a 3 to 5 player “Take That!” styled card game where players take on the role as peacocks at a party, trying to score the love of the peahen. Play those flirting cards and fill up your love meter, or score 10 points by molting out your feathers. But your opponents will try to stop you by Blocking you and Plucking your feathers, so be careful!

This “take that” style party game will be run in it’s “safe for work” version for this demo.
