Greetings, Fellow Play Explorers!

Yes, that's right - no foolin' - we're playing games on April Fools Day. Seriously!

Here's our next International Boba House event - we hope to see everybody playing games!

Exxtra: This is a push-your-luck dice game by Dr. Reiner Knizia. Players roll the dice, deciding how much risk to take, in an effort to make it around the track the fastest. As with most of our games, this is a pretty simple games, with some challenging and interesting decisions to make along the way.

Factory Fun: Here's another great game by Dutch designer Corn? van Moorsel. In this game, you're trying to squeeze in machines onto your factory floor, hooking up the outputs and inputs of the machines. The most efficient machine setup will yield the most points!

Pack And Stack: This game is from another German Game designer, Bernd Eisenstein. Remember the fun you've had packing moving trucks? Well, prepare to relieve that fun as you try to load cargos on to your trucks. Each round is like a quick puzzle, as you pack your trucks up most effectively.

Dixit: This is a very interesting new party game from France, designed by Jean-Louis Roubira. The cards are each unique pieces of art. Each player in turn selects a card from their hand, offers a sentence or phrase to describe it. The other players select cards from their hand that they think best matches the storyteller's card. Votes are tallied, and if you guess correctly, you'll score points. Guess wrong, and the player who selected the picture you voted for scores points. You'll be surprised how well this works, and how much fun it is!

Come on out and learn some great new games! (And try some Boba, too!)
