tasty-minstrel-gamesMichael of Tasty Minstrel Games wouldn’t tell me what’s coming up next year, but he foolishly added entries for three of his upcoming games to the BGG database. Bwa hahahah!

  • Belfort: “Belfort is a Worker Placement game with Area Majority scoring in each district as well as for each type of worker. Buildings give you influence in the districts as well as income, but taxes increase based on your score so the winning players will have to pay more than those behind.”
  • Cow Tipping: A ridiculously themed game where the cows tip the cars. “Collect gangs of cows by drawing cards from the draw pile or your neighbors’ discard piles. Use these gangs to tip over the 5 types of vehicle cards in 5 different colors. Your score will be based on the set of vehicle cards you tip. You score for collecting types of vehicles as well as for collecting colors, so you can go for a bunch of Tractors, or you could try to collect all the Blue vehicles.”
  • Train of Thought: A Password-like word game where for each clue given, each player may make 1 guess. If none are correct, the clue-giver creates another clue, using one of the guesses and up to 2 other words.

While I’m on the topic, run over to BGG to get your entry in for the Tasty Minstrel giveaway contest, ending soon.

Last but not least, until Sept 29, Michael is selling a package of both of TM’s current games for $44.95 with free shipping inside the United States (limited to 1000).
