Brettspiel Adventskalender 2016

24 x fun to play


The smashing success of the weeks before Christmas in 2015 is repeated this year: Again, one expansion for one of 24 games is hiding behind the 24 doors of the huge Adventskalender – among them expansions for winners of various renowned national and international awards worldwide as well as for two of the games that were nominated for Game of the Year 2016 in Germany. The 24 games are: Arcadia Quest, Arkwright, Broom Service, Böhmische Dörfer, Cacao Chocolatl, Camel Up Cards, Crisis, Das Orakel von Delphi, Die Portale von Molthar, Gold West, Guilds of London, Hansa Teutonica, Imhotep, Istanbul, Karuba, King of Tokyo / King of New York, Mysterium, Panic Lab, Quadropolis, Robinson Crusoe, Saboteur, Tallinn, West of Africa and Zooloretto.

As is standard for expansions, you cannot play them without the respective core game which might be an incentive to add the one or the other game to your collection.

This year editor Matthias Nagy has come up with a nice improvement – the Adventskalender is available on two editions – one is the attractive big box with 24 little doors – behind each of them you find one expansion and the rules for it - for use as a real Adventskalender and the other edition is a compact little box, filled with the expansions, small and easy to transport.

Small or big, the Adventskalender is a marvelous idea, of course mainly intended for experienced players and collectors; the respective basic games – not all of them are 2016 releases - should all be available – so if your appetite has been whetted, you should be able to find them. And a big thank you goes to Matthias for the idea!
