  • What Strange Artwork (Dixit)

    Dixit is a super-fun card game where you give clues to others to try and guess your card. But you can't make your clue too good otherwise everyone will score and you won't. It's a game of imprecision and balance. We played 3 games across this video with 7-8 players in each. It was a blast and we hope you think so too!

  • Oh the Humanity! (Cards Against Humanity)

    Yup, let's do this thing again. Random Impact gathers around to sling insults about dead babies, ugly people, and Megabyte. Why? Because we can. See how it all unfolds in this somewhat timeless classic by some of the best card-game designers the earth has ever seen. At least that's what they'd like us to think.

    Tonight we drink in ...the inn. The Red Dragon Inn to be exact. We've got an Ogre, a psychotic rabbit, a Bard, and bunch of other personalities all vying to survive the alcoholic haze that comes with playing this game. Watch to see who gets drunk under the table!

Game: Catan
Max Players: 3-4
Time: 60-120 minutes

Synopsis of the Game
In Catan (formerly The Settlers of Catan), players try to be the dominant force on the island of Catan by building settlements, cities, and roads. On each turn dice are rolled to determine what resources the island produces. Players collect these resources (cards)—wood, grain, brick, sheep, or stone—to build up their civilizations to get to 10 victory points and win the game.

Setup includes randomly placing large hexagonal tiles (each showing a resource or the desert) in a honeycomb shape and surrounding them with water tiles, some of which contain ports of exchange. Number disks, which will correspond to die rolls (two 6-sided dice are used), are placed on each resource tile. Each player is given two settlements (think: houses) and roads (sticks) which are, in turn, placed on intersections and borders of the resource tiles. Players collect a hand of resource cards based on which hex tiles their last-placed house is adjacent to. A robber pawn is placed on the desert tile.

A turn consists of possibly playing a development card, rolling the dice, everyone (perhaps) collecting resource cards based on the roll and position of houses (or upgraded cities—think: hotels) unless a 7 is rolled, turning in resource cards (if possible and desired) for improvements, trading cards at a port, and trading resource cards with other players. If a 7 is rolled, the active player moves the robber to a new hex tile and steals resource cards from other players who have built structures adjacent to that tile.

Points are accumulated by building settlements and cities, having the longest road and the largest army (from some of the development cards), and gathering certain development cards that simply award victory points. When a player has gathered 10 points (some of which may be held in secret), he announces his total and claims the win.
