This is a completely Quebec game created by Jimmy Dorion and illustrated by Mylène Villeneuve. It was printed and published in Quebec. You can’t get more fleur de lis than this.

And this is not to sugarcoat the game we offer you, primarily because it is very good and offers the choice of playing alone, in a team or even against each other with the possibility of eight players. . And the mechanics guarantee that the game will not be longer than there are two or eight of us.

We are here before a very successful golf simulation where we have the choice of playing 9 holes or 18 holes. You won’t want to stay outdoors, we assure you.

This is a card game. There are cards indicating the number of moves. They range from one to six strokes. There are also +1 cards that will add to your score.

At the beginning of the game, each player receives nine cards, which he arranges in three columns of three, face down. Everyone turns over a card of their choice in the top row and bottom row, and the game begins.

To advance the game, there is a stack of action cards that are flipped over one at a time and all players perform an action. There are cards that target one or more spaces on the player’s card table. We can then flip the card if it’s not, or even move it along with the adjacent card. Golf Kart allows you to do the same, but with the card of your choice. Then there are holes, then you need to select a card from the top row and its value will be listed on your card.

You can also make combos, that is, make a row or column of three identical cards. If yes, then three cards are discarded and replaced by three others from the deck, which are placed face down. The combination deducts two points from your score.

It’s very efficient, there’s no downtime and you want to play again right now to improve your score.

In the heights of the Himalayas, the yak is an indispensable beast. Here he becomes a carrier of resources and stones that will be useful to you.

Because, in order to navigate in the fog, the locals build stone pyramids. Your goal will be to collect resources that you will exchange for stones in order to build your pyramid.

This is a game that is perfect for young players who are ready to take the next step. It’s not difficult, but it does require some waiting and preparation.

The central field is a village around which players settle. There are four very pretty yaks and their resourceful wagons.

Each player has action cards, and before the round begins, each player chooses one and places it face down in front of them. This is the action the player will take this turn. In particular, we can collect resources from the cart in front of us or put them back to take stones. But there are limitations, some carts do not accept certain resources.

When you take stones, you add them to your wall. And beware of the rising fog… and the changing direction of the wagons.

The game ends when the player has built his pyramid. You get points for the number of stones of the same color, as well as for groups of stones in accordance with the number you have.

It’s pretty simple and fun, and it’s a good starting point for games like harvesting and delivering.

This party game, which aims to give the same answers as everyone else and explains in 30 seconds, will make you laugh. We have a pen with cow tokens and a big pink cow. And each player gets a piece of paper and a pencil.

A playmaker named cowboy or cowgirl reads a card with a statement written on it. All players, including the game master, write down their response.

The answers are then revealed one by one. The players with the most popular answer receive a cow token. It takes eight to win.

But be careful, there is a big pink cow. This is given to the player who has given a unique answer that no one else has written on their card. And when you have a pink cow, it is impossible to win even if you have eight cows. You must wait for the other player to give a unique answer in order to pass it on to them.

No harder than that. It is ideal as an aperitif to entertain adults and children.
