In Cóatl The Card Game, players try to paint the most beautiful and valuable serpent they can. The serpent (or Cóatl) is made up of a Head, a Tail and 8 Body cards.
During their turn, players will play 2 cards to create, then claim, any available patterns on the Prophecy cards. If you complete a Prophecy card that has already been claimed by another player, you will steal it and display it in front of you. You score more points if you create the same pattern multiple times and you may eventually be able to protect that Prophecy card so that it can no longer be stolen.
In Betta, each player is assigned a species of betta. All they need to do is arrange the fish into different patterns, which earn them points depending on how complex the pattern is. In addition, once all the displays are filled, the players score extra points based on the number of bettas of their color in each of the displays.
Each team is made up of a sketcher and a guesser. With a marker, the sketcher must draw a mystery word by connecting icons on his sketchpad. Then, by making sounds and mimes to his teammate, he must have the guesser sketch the drawing by making him connect the icons that he acts and noises. You must act quickly since the objective is to be the first team to find the mystery word reproduced in the drawing.

Take a look at “Coatl” – In Focus!
Sculpt the most pleasing Coatl (Aztec feathered snake) in this attractive, bright, and swift game!
Coatl manages to be both strategic and deceptively simple at the same time. Players spend turns collecting thick, colorful head, tail, and body sections or assembling them into Coatls. They work to fulfill the beautifully illustrated Prophecy and Temple cards to earn prestige. At the end of the game, points are totaled and a new High Priest takes their place as the head of the spiritual Aztec world.
With the passing of a great spiritual leader there is a void in the Aztec world. Players compete in a test of artistry and skill to win the favour of the gods. By carving intricate sculptures of feathered serpents, known as Cóatl, players earn prestige points to become the next High Priest.

This time on GameNight!, Nikki, Deborah, Dave and Lincoln teach and show you how to play Incubation from designer Carl Brière and published by Synapses Games.
Christophe makes a rather surprising discovery. Hidden in a bush, he will tame his new friend to discover all the subtleties of the game Incubation.
Synapses Games was at the Gen Con 2019 in Indianapolis, and we got a chance to show off INCUBATION with Steph Hodge from Board Game Geek.
On the snow-capped peaks of the highest mountains, an incredible discovery has been made; Dragons! Adventurous explorers have found nests of different coloured Dragon Eggs and they have started to flood the market. Hatching these eggs can mean big business, so why not get in on the action?
The final turn of the game is his! He places his last block and holds his breath…
In Incubation, players become caretakers for Dragon Eggs, acquiring the necessary resources to encourage baby Dragons to break free from their shells! Through careful collection of Fire, Water, and Coins, and a willingness to push their luck, players will hatch Eggs, complete Objectives, and prove they’re the best Dragon wranglers around!
