New Playtests This Week

Stonelight - The Crazy Magic Tournament - Churro Games

STONELIGHT is a fun-to-play game where up to 6 players play simultaneously, collecting resources and casting spells to each other to collect 6 Magic Stones before anyone else to win the game. The fact that everyone plays simultaneously brings a lot of amusing and unpredictable interactions in every game.

Fertile Ground - Infinitum

Fertile Ground is found all over the world, and as a Gardener, you endeavor to find and Sow the unique flora of the globe in your own Garden. As your Garden grows, your plants help and guide you along this path, accelerating your progress while also necessitating thoughtful orientation of new plants in your Garden. But you're not alone; other Gardeners are watching, and working just as hard to create the most productive Garden by the end of Winter - and only one will prevail! Gardeners begin with a hand of between 1-7 of the 200 unique Plant Cards and work to Sow these into their Garden. As they do so, they will need to Collect resources (Soil, Sun, Water, Seed) to pay for the cards as well as make sure that they have appropriate space where each plant can survive. Taking turns, Gardeners collect resources, gather cards, and Sow plants into their Gardens; as they accumulate more plants and their associated abilities, their capacity to do each of these increases drastically. The game proceeds through the four seasons (rounds) in which each Gardener has a set number of turns, and at the end of each season Gardeners Pollinate their plants to gather Harvest. At the end of Winter, the value of the accumulated plants, resources, various tokens, and more determine the total value of each Garden, and thus the winner of the game. —description from the designer
