Combining education and play, Geek Attitude Games’ Aquarena presents a quiet pond as an arena for survival. Players explore the “food chain” in the pond by placing their predators where they can grab the tastiest prey, while they try to avoid becoming prey themselves.
Aquarena uses a modular game board that can be expanded to allow additional players, 60 predator cards, 6 frog meeples, 1 heron standee, and 25 tokens. It was created by Baptiste Le Corre for 2 to 6 players, ages 8 and up. Games take about half an hour. MSRP is $27.99.
Designed by Jean-Philippe Sahut (Romeo & Juliette), TiKids’ Frog Soup features 4 plastic jumping frogs, 8 cardboard figures with 20 plastic stands, 4 magic circle tiles, 1 cauldron tile, and 6 ingredient tokens. Intended for ages 5 and up, it is playable by 1 to 4 players and takes about 20 minutes. MSRP is $24.99.
Dexterity Jane includes 10 round tiles, 60 cards, and 19 tokens. The game supports 2 to 9 players, ages 8 and up, and plays in 20 minutes. Created by Olivier Mahy (Imagician). MSRP is $22.99.
