Stocking Stuffers

The holidays are here and many people still have last minute gift shopping to do! Well you’re in luck! Here at The Round Table, we’ve got some great ideas for stocking stuffers to help you get through your last minute gift shopping! Next time you visit us at The Round Table, go home with some of these awesome products:

Gloom is a competitive game for 2 to 5 players that can be played in 60 minutes. In this morbid card game, players each control a different family, with their goal being to make their own family as miserable as possible before killing them off, while making their opponents’ families as happy ass possible. While the goal of the game may not be in the spirit of the holidays, this is a novel game with great mechancis that’s sure to make a great gift for anyone with a love of dark humor.

Saboteur is a competitive game for 3 to 10 players that can be played in 30 minutes. In this card laying mining game, players act as either minors or saboteurs, with secret motives and simple goals. The minors have to complete a continuous path from the entrance of their mine to a hidden source of goals. The saboteurs, on the other hand, have to prevent the minors from reaching their goal at any cost! Payers can play cards that expand or block portions of the mine, and also play cards to break or repair each other’s equipment. This simple family friendly game is great for kids and would make a perfect gift for anyone with a love of fast paced, simple to learn card games.

Star Realms is a competitive game for 2 players that can be played in 20 minutes. In this fast paced deck-building game, players compete in outer space combat, attempting to reduce each other’s authority to 0 by trading for better ships and gaining higher combat score with which to attack each other. This fast paced game is all-in-one alternative to CCGS for anyone looking for fierce head to head gameplay.

Coup is a competitive game for 2 to 6 players that can be played in 15 minutes. In this light bluffing game, players attempt to reduce their opponents’ influence to 0 by  removing their face-down characters from the game. Players can only use the abilities of their face-down characters but can lie about what characters they have in order to be able to use other abilities. A player that is caught lying loses influence, but sometimes gambling on a bluffcan be the best path to victory! This extremely fast-paced game makes a great gift for any lover of big group games.

MTG Booster Packs can be bought individually or as boxes. If you know anyone who plays Magic the Gathering, these packs of additional trading cards will make the perfect gift. The latest set even has a chance to contain super rare and powerful “Invention” cards. If you’re looking for more than a stocking stuffer, a booster box makes a great gift, and for this month only, each Kaladesh booster box comes with 2 special limited run bonus booster packs that contain only rare and premium cards.

Still not sure what to get? give the gift of gaming with one of our Legacy Coins. These special gift coins can be assigned any amount of store credit, which can be applied to any purchase at The Round Table!







Intro To: Horror Games


In the spirit of Halloween, we’re introducing you to some of our favourite horror games. More specifically, we’re introducing you to some great games by Twilight Creations. These games are good enough to play any time of year, and zombie games in particular are always popular but at Halloween, they go from great games to must-play games. When you visit us at the Round Table on our around Halloween, make a point of checking out these awesome games:

Zombies!!! Is a competitive game for 2 to 6 players that can be played in 60 minutes. In this street crawling game of George Romero style zombies, players fight their way through a city swarming with the undead. There are no real winners in a zombie apocalypse but the winner of the game is the first player to either reach the Helipad tile and kill the zombie there or kill a total of 25 zombies. Players have to be careful though and conserve their bullets. When a player is killed they move back to the starting tile and lose half of their zombie kills. If you’re a fan of classic zombie scenarios then you have to check out this game that basically defined the genre.

Zombies!!! Jr. is a competitive game for 2 to 6 players that can be played in 45 to 60 minutes. This neighbourhood crawling game of cartoonish zombies plays very similarly to Zombies!!! but has fewer tiles and a family friendly art style. This is a game that you can play with the kids to give them the feel of Zombies!!!. If you’re looking for a family game to play this Halloween, give this one a try.

Cthulu!!! Is a semi-cooperative game for 2 to 6 players that can be played in 75 minutes. In this hardboiled detective game, players work together to stop the evil cultists from summoning Hastur, all while becoming more and more unstable, and resisting the temptation of evil relics of power. If the players can’t prevent Hastur’s summoning, the last surviving player is the winner! If you’re a fan of Lovecraftian horror, then you need to try this game next time you visit us at The Round Table.

Gravediggers is a competitive game for 2 to 5 players that can be played in 25 minutes. In this fast-paced card game, players take on the role of gravediggers competing over one in game week to “borrow” the most valuables from their clients. Whoever has the most stuff at the end of the game is the winner! This is a great game to play if you’re looking for something fast and light. It’s definitely worth checking out, especially as the first game in a night of Halloween themed gaming.
