Posted by John Phythyon on May 13, 2019 @ 7:41 pm CT
A race game with resource management, the game has players maneuvering paddleboats down the Mississippi River. At the start, the course down the river is unknown and is revealed as the game progresses, including obstacles such as sandbars and floating logs. Each player has a limited supply of coal, so maneuvers have to be planned carefully.
The new edition includes the original base game and the 1998 expansion The Black Rose, which increased the number of players from four to six and introduced a seventh boat, the titular Black Rose, which is controlled by the player in last place and can be used to interfere with the leaders.
Mississippi Queen comes with 18 river tiles, 7 paddleboat tokens, 14 paddle wheels tokens, 16 passenger tokens, a turn order / arrival tile, a direction dial, and a measure gauge. MSRP is $49.99. The game accommodates two to six players, aged 10 and up, and plays in about 45 minutes.
Colors of Paris includes a double-layer Central board, four player boards, 24 assistant meeples, 12 development markers 211 pigment cubes, 32 painting cards, 12 prestige point tokens, four forbidden action tokens, 1 first-player token, four easels, 15 bonus cards, and eight painter tiles. The game is two-four players ages 10+, and plays in about 20 minutes. Expected ship date is Q3. MSRP is $49.99.
Draftosaurus ships with 60 dinosaur meeples, one bag, and five double-sided player boards. Two to five players ages eight and up can play in about 15 minutes. MSRP is $24.99.
