Thumbnail of Hamsterrolle cover

Hamsterrolle (Jacques Zeimet)

Another clever dexterity game published by Zoch. This one has a giant hamster wheel and a set of wooden blocks for each player. The aim is to get rid of your blocks. However, as players add blocks, the wheel turns and they must pick up any blocks that fall out! Huge fun: £36.00.

Thumbnail of Hansa cover art

Hansa (Michael Schacht)

A clever tactical game of trading around the Baltic Sea in the days of the medieval Hanseatic League. One of my favourite Michael Schacht games: £18.00.

Out of stock

Hansa Teutonica (Andreas Steding)

Set around the cities of the Hanseatic League, this is a game of establishing trade routes and setting up trading posts. It's another challenging, tactical game from Andreas Steding: £28.00.

Hansa Teutonica: East Expansion (Andreas Steding)

This expansion for Hansa Teutonica moves the action to Northeastern Germany and the areas around (and across) the Baltic Sea: £9.50.

Thumbnail of Hansa Teutonica: Britannia board

Hansa Teutonica: Britannia (Andreas Steding)

This expansion for Hansa Teutonica provides an alternative board, a map of Britain rather than Germany: £9.50.

Thumbnail of Hare and Tortoise cover

Hare and Tortoise (David Parlett)

Another classic – and a game I stocked when I started Games from Pevans, so I'm pleased to have it back. It is such a clever race game as players try to get enough carrots to reach the end, but not so many that they can't win. Remembering to eat their lettuces on the way: £18.00

Thumbnail of Haspelknecht cover

Haspelknecht (Thomas Spitzer)

The third of Spitzer's coal-mining games, this one starts at the beginning with coal that can just be dug up from fields. The players are actually farmers and must decide how far to take this new business – and what technology to develop: £36.00

Thumbnail of the cover from Haspelknecht: the Ruhr Valley

Haspelknecht: the Ruhr Valley (Thomas Spitzer)

This is a clever expansion for coal-mining game, Haspelknecht. It allows players to dig deeper in search of coal (using iron supports to shore up their mine and channels to clear the water) and sell more widely via the barges on the river Ruhr. It really does expand the game: £24.00

Thumbnail of Heads of State boxart

Heads of State (Peter Hawes)

Players draft cards to make sets that will let them establish their nobles in the major countries of western Europe. Heads of State provides players with a competitive challenge over three centuries: £30.00.

Thumbnail of Heckmeck cover

Out of stock

Heckmeck (am Bratwurmeck)/Pickomino (Reiner Knizia)

Heckmeck is a brilliantly simple yet fiendish game. It's played with chunky tiles – not unlike Mah Jongg or Dominoes – that players collect according to what they can roll on the dice. Unless they go bust and lose a tile! I have the multi-lingual edition from the German publisher: £12.00.

Thumbnail of Heckmeck Extrawurm cover

Out of stock

Heckmeck Extrawurm (Reiner Knizia)

Expansion for the terrific Heckmeck... (aka Pickomino) that adds extra options. In particular, there are character pieces that provide advantages for the owning player, making certain worm tiles more valuable. There are a couple more worms, too: £13.00.

Thumbnail of Hellas cover

Hellas (Stefan Dorra)

Entertaining game of building up villages, cities and temples on an Ancient Greek island – providing there's enough marble produced from the island's quarries. £38.00

Thumbnail of Hellweg Westfalicus cover

Hellweg Westfalicus (Michael Schacht)

The eponymous 'Westphalian Highway' runs through this game of trading in medieval Germany. Players establish trade routes across the region to buy and sell at a profit. Basic economics, but a clever game: £25.00

Thumbnail of Historia cover

Historia (Marco Pranzo)

Magnificent civilisation-development game where players must balance military and scientific development to best effect. Geography is secondary and card (action) management crucial. Clever and challenging: £38.00.

Thumbnail of Homesteaders box art

Out of stock

Homesteaders (Alex Rockwell)

Terrific game of developing a Wild West town – starting with just a homestead. The key is winning the initial auctions each turn. I now have the European edition, which has a different box from the original, but the same contents: £25.00.

Thumbnail of I'm the Boss cover

Out of stock

I'm the Boss (Sid Sackson)

Hugely entertaining and anarchic game of plutocrats vying for the most money. Yet it's so simple. And such good fun that I've been playing it for twenty years: £35.00.

Thumbnail of Imhotep cover

Imhotep (Phil Walker-Harding)

Clever, tactical game of constructing the monuments of Ancient Egypt. Players have nice, chunky wooden blocks to play with, which adds to the appeal. £30.00

Thumbnail of Imperialism cover

Imperialism: Road to Domination (Konrad Perzyna)

Players represent major empires expanding through the 15th-19th centuries. However, the game is not so much about the geography, that's abstracted to cards. Instead, players focus on economic and social development and intrigue – though they'll need military strength as well. Terrific stuff: £25.00.

Thumbnail of cover from Indian Summer

Indian Summer (Uwe Rosenberg)

This is the second in Uwe Rosenberg's "trilogy of puzzle games". It's set in the New England forests in Autumn (or Fall, as they say), hence the rich, vibrant colours. The aim is to be the first to cover your patch of forest floor with leaf tiles, while finding helpful 'treasures' along the way: £32.00

Thumbnail of Insider cover

Insider (Akihiro Itoh, Kwaji, Daichi Okano and Kito Shinma)

Intriguing party game that's kind of a cross between Twenty Questions and Werewolf. Deducing the thing in question can be made simpler by the player who knows the answer, but they have to keep their identity secret if they want to win. Clever: £15.00

Thumbnail of Istanbul cover

Istanbul (Rüdiger Dorn)

As a fat-cat merchant, you send your assistants trading around the grand bazaar. Ultimately, you want to buy rubies, but first you must spend money on improving your trading facilities. It's clever and entertaining: £32.00.

Thumbnail of Istanbul: Mocha & Baksheesh box art

Istanbul: Mocha & Baksheesh (Rüdiger Dorn)

There's a new commodity in the Istanbul bazaar: coffee. It's something else for players to deal in. The Tavern lets them obstruct their opponents or improve their own position. Or they can give alms to acquire one of the all important rubies. It adds intriguing options to the base game: £18.00.

Thumbnail of letters and Seals cover

Istanbul: Letters and Seals (Rüdiger Dorn)

The bazaar is bigger with this expansion, adding more places for merchants to visit. In particular, they can collect letters and deliver them to earn seals, which can be turned into the coveted rubies. Add in a more useful assistant and there's a lot more going on: £18.00.

Thumbnail of Istanbul Dice Game cover

Istanbul Dice Game (Rüdiger Dorn)

A dice game that stays true to the 'feel' of the original Istanbul, while playing quicker and offering some different challenges. The pursuit of rubies remains the goal, with several ways of acquiring them. Good fun: £18.00

Thumbnail of Jagd nach dem Gral box art

Jagd nach dem Gral (Eric Solomon)

That’s "The Quest for the Holy Grail" in English. Four groups are hunting the Grail: players move the pawns around the board – according to who's prepared to reveal their influence. It’s a development of the classic hidden control game, Sigma File: £8.50.

Thumbnail of cover art from Jane Austen's Matchmaker

Jane Austen's Matchmaker (Richard Wolfrik Galland)

This is a hugely entertaining card game featuring characters from half a dozen Jane Austen novels. Players' aim is to form mutually advantageous marriages between the gentlemen and ladies. Brilliant! £9.00.

Thumbnail of Jane Austen's Matchmaker with Zombies cover

…with Zombies (Richard Wolfrik Galland)

Love, marriage and … brains! This expansion for Jane Austen's Matchmaker brings the undead to the world of Austen. One player has the challenge of being undead and trying to infect the others. Great fun! £8.00.

Thumbnail of Jet Set box art

Jet Set (Kris Gould)

This is a cracking game of establishing airline routes across Europe. Players have to balance income versus victory points, but the key decision is when to go for the end game. One of my favourites: £20.00.

Thumbnail of John Company box art

Out of print

John Company (Cole Wehrle)

An opportunity to rule 18th century India! The players compete for preferment within the British East India Company (aka John Company) while working to build up the company. Just try not to provoke the Indian Mutiny along the way. Compelling stuff: £36.00.

Thumbnail of Jorvik cover

Jorvik (Stefan Feld)

Challenging game set in Danish-ruled north-east England a thousand years ago. Players are jarls in competition to build up their prestige, but they must also co-operate against raiders. It's an intriguing development of Feld's earlier Die Speichersatdt. £30.00

Thumbnail of Key to the City - London cover

Key to the City – London (Sebastian Bleasdale and Richard Breese)

A new game from the duo who gave us Keyflower – and one that owes something to the earlier game. However, it is a distinct, indeed distinctive, game with players using familiar landmarks to develop their own borough of London. It looks terrific: £38.00

Thumbnail of the Keyflower cover - Quined edition

Keyflower (Richard Breese and Sebastian Bleasdale)

Two of my favourite games designers working together! As far as I'm concerned, that's enough to make it a must-buy. It's played over four differing rounds (the seasons of the year) with players using workers to bid for buildings to expand their village and to operate the buildings. One of my favourites from Spiel '12 – I now have the Quined edition: £35.00.

Thumbnail of Keyflower: the Farmers box - Quined edition

Keyflower: the Farmers (Richard Breese and Sebastian Bleasdale)

Terrific expansion to Keyflower that adds farming to the challenges facing the players. Farm buildings, wheat and animals can be the centre of the game or just another feature. Either way, the new tiles provide a strategic element to the game. I now have the Quined edition: £20.00.

Top of page

Thumbnail of Keyflower: the Merchants box - Quined edition

Keyflower: the Merchants (Richard Breese and Sebastian Bleasdale)

Expansion number two for the brilliant Keyflower gives players more options for developing their village. It can be used as the basis for the game (along with some parts of the base game) or to add extra opportunities to the original. I now have the Quined edition: £20.00.

Thumbnail of Keymelequin artwork

Keymelequin (Keyflower mini-expansion) (Sebastian Bleasdale and Richard Breese)

A small expansion for Keyflower, the Keymelequin ship brings two multi-coloured meeples into play. This provides some interesting new options for the game. £4.50

Thumbnail of the Keyflower cover - Quined edition

Keyflower bundle (Richard Breese and Sebastian Bleasdale)

All the above (Keyflower plus Farmers and Merchants with Keymelequin as well) plus the Key Celeste mini-expansion (the ghost meeple and ship tile): £70.00.

Thumbnail of the cover from Keyper

Keyper (Richard Breese)

The latest Key... game focuses on the pawns ("keyples") in the game and facilitates player interaction through the games' mechanisms. Being able to re-configure the boards in play during the game adds to the options open to players. Complex and rewarding: £62.00

Thumbnail of Kingdomino cover

Kingdomino (Bruno Cathala)

A simple, but clever little game. The 'dominoes' are tiles showing different terrains and the aim is to get contiguous areas of the same terrain. Simple enough to win the Spiel des Jahres, complex enough for gamers: £14.00

Kings Progress box art

Kings Progress (Steve Kingsbury)

Influence courtiers and persuade the King to favour you in this subtle strategy game: £25.00.

Thumbnail of Kippit cover

Kippit (Torsten Marold)

Entertaining two-player dexterity game that has players balancing different-sized wooden cubes on their end of a wooden seesaw. They have to pick up anything that falls off, which is a problem when the aim is to get rid of all your cubes. £22.00
