Murders at Karlov Manor Commander Party

What is the Commander Party Format for Murders at Karlov Manor?

Each player in a pod of four receives one copy of the Party Card: a case file with a dotted line down the middle, which players will fold in half before starting the game.

During the Commander Party, all players will be tasked with solving a mystery—which guild the other culprits at the table belong to. They'll fold their Party Cards along the dotted line, and secretly circle two guilds inside the card.

Then, at the end of each turn, if a Commander has been cast during the game, players may ask the opponent to their left a yes-or-no question about their selected guilds. If the answer is yes, they'll select a Retainer—a small in-game bonus—from the two listed on the back of the card.

If the player successfully guesses both guilds, they claim the Reward for solving the case, and they no longer ask questions for the rest of the game.

Into the Inklands

Disney Lorcana: Into The Inklands is the third chapter of Disney’s new trading card game that gives you a fresh outlet to play with your favorite Disney characters and create epic crossovers.

This set will change up your game with a brand-new element: location cards! Discover new landscapes as you venture across the Inklands in search of lore that was scattered by the recent flood. These locations add a whole new dimension of gameplay and a fresh new spin to every deck.

One of the other thrilling aspects is the introduction of more beloved Disney properties, including DuckTales, TaleSpin, and Treasure Planet. You can send Disney’s Kit Cloudkicker questing through the air on his airfoil, draw a solar sailing Disney’s Jim Hawkins card into your hand, and more! There’s so much that awaits in the Inklands.

We have boosters, booster boxes, troves, gift sets and new starter decks all in stock now, but if you want anything I would hurry as it is likely to sell pretty fast!!!

Tiny Turbo Racers

This week we have added a new game to our rental catalogue...

"Tiny Turbo Cars is a frantic race game for 2 to 4 players in which you program the movements of your tiny toy car in advance, with a sliding puzzle acting as your remote controller.

Choose your car, grab your remote controller, create the track, and get ready to race! At the beginning of each round, players have to work their way through their sliding puzzle controllers simultaneously, trying to create the sequence of actions they want their car to perform during the round.

Each symbol on the puzzle corresponds to one of the possible actions — but only the two middle rows of commands on your controllers will be applied, so there's room for maneuvers, but be quick! The first player to put down their controller will be the first to move their car during the round. Each player then executes the program they created, and the sooner you play during a round, the safer you are that your actions will actually play out as planned rather than crashing into unexpected obstacles...or other cars!

But trying to be quick might also increase your chances of making mistakes, and every time you take damage, you lose battery power, which will slow you down. But hey, mistakes happen, right? You can always recharge and be back in the race.

This is a fierce race, with pitfalls around every corner and unscrupulous adversaries! Don't miss your chance to shoot your missiles at your opponents — before they hit you! The first player to cross the finish line wins!"

Like all of our games it is available to rent for just £2 per night.

Tacocat Spelled Backwards

We have added a new title from the makers of Exploding Kittens to both our games library and to our shelves for you to buy. 

The game is...


Tacocat Spelled Backwards is a game of clever card matchups in a box that is also a board with a cat who is also a taco. Unfold the box, then duel head-to-head in palindrome-themed battles. The higher card wins the round and brings Tacocat closer to your side. Each card victory moves you one step closer to winning.

White Dwarf 497 – Tyranids Infiltrate a New Combat Patrol

February’s issue of White Dwarf is on the way, and as usual, it’s stacked with excellent Warhammer content. Kicking things off is the Bunker, which brings a new scenario for Warhammer 40,000 and Age of Sigmar, and an exciting new way to play Warhammer Underworlds without any cards – a great way to get a taste of everyone’s favourite competitive skirmish game.

With head ghoul honcho Ushoran on the cover, you’d be right to expect a decent chunk for the Flesh-eater Courts. Basic Training provides an in-depth overview of the tips and tricks this cannibal court is hiding up its rotten sleeves, and there are also rules for using them in games of Warhammer Quest: Cursed City.

In the grim darkness of the far future, you’ll find comprehensive rules for using Space Marine Scouts in Kill Team. Not content to let the Imperium have all that stealthy fun, the Hive Mind has concocted a brand new Combat Patrol centred around its vanguard organisms.

Nine Von Ryan’s Leapers join a Neurolictor and a Lictor to form the Insidious Infiltrators, who specialise in rapidly closing the distance and shredding their prey with razor-sharp talons. You even get all the datasheets as card attachments to the issue.

Our brave commanders also continue expanding their Warhammer 40,000 forces in Tale of Four Warlords, Inquisitor Coteaz provides a thorough report on his understanding of Vashtorr the Arkifane, while there are two helpings of Warhammer 40,000 fiction.

For everyone whose hearts are still aflutter over the return of Warhammer: The Old World, the very first printed Battle Report for the latest version of this venerable game features in Issue 497. Old World designers Jonathan and Dan* command the Tomb Kings of Khemri and the Kingdom of Bretonnia as they battle over a big green field – and yes, before you ask, there are top-down graphics of regiments with arrows indicating their tactical movements, just like you remember.
