More Bacon coming to TOYTAG from Oink Games

More Bacon coming to TOYTAG from Oink Games

Pursuing the idea of bringing the most unique board games to the little red dot's shores. TOYTAG has acquired more of Oink Game's catalogue on top of previously acquired titles. So let me introduce you to these new flavours to our Oink Games palate of games, A Fake Artist Goes to New York and Startups. 

In a Fake Artist Goes to New York, you are well... artists in New York EXCEPT one of you is a fake and it is up to the group of "real artist" to figure out who is the fake before he/she sullies your good reputations. 

At the start of the game, one person is the game master and he writes a clue to all the artist except for one which he writes an X on. That person is the fake artist. The game then proceeds with each person drawing one line on the piece to create the picture even the fake who has no idea what the picture is. This is done twice and at then the players vote on who the fake artist is. If the fake gets the most votes, then the fake has one chance to guess what the picture is. If the fake guesses correctly, the fake and the game master wins, if not the "real artist" wins. The fake artist can also win if he is not voted as the fake in the voting phase.

The next new pound of fun is called Startups. The theme of the game is that you are all investors trying to invest in the next big Startup and you are doing so by getting shares in each of the companies. The person with the highest net worth of shares at the end of the game wins. 

The game is simple, at the start of the game 5 cards are removed from the deck. Then, during a player's turn, a card is either played in front of oneself or a card is drawn from the face up pile or the face down deck. The catch is if a player wants to draw from the face down deck, they have to put a capital chip on each face up card available. When the deck is exhausted the game is over and scoring is done.

The player with the most shares in a company gets 1 capital chip for each card of the company that player has in front of him on the table except that each one is worth 3 points. 

So that is the new dishes of fun on the menu from Oink Games in TOYTAG. Do drop by our store and bring home some fun for one and all!
