Do you love the shoe LAST KINGDOM !?
Do you love area control board games !?
If the answer to both or either of those is yes then come down to Merlyn's Spokane , this is a game you must take a look at !!

The Last Kingdom Board Game is game of war and politics for 2-5 players by renowned designer John D Clair that's based on the Netflix series The Last Kingdom.

In this world, the kingdoms of Britain are at war. Many have already fallen to the invading Danes, leaving the great kingdom of Wessex standing alone and defiant under the command of King Alfred. You are one of the great commanders and politicians in this war-torn land known today as England. Both Saxon and Dane armies openly battle for dominance, and it is up to you to title the scales of power. To claim these lands, you will need to tread a dangerous path between both sides of the conflict. Will you betray your allies for power? What part will you play in the birth of a new nation, and will you ultimately rule it all?

The Last Kingdom Board Game plays over the course of two rounds during which players will perform actions to command armies to shape the course of the war. Your allegiance to the Saxons or the Danes can be firm or fickle, and your score will reflect not just your prowess in battle, but your political skill in maneuvering the competing forces of Britain.

Each of the ten leaders offers unique benefits to your strategy and provides special cards to start your hand. At the start of each round, players complete their hand by drafting cards from a deck specific to that round, then the war begins in one of the five regions. Players take turns playing cards to command Saxon or Dane armies, gaining affinity with the different factions, or positioning their heroes and leaders to shift the tides of war. Players also have access to a rotating market of actions that are available to everyone.

Alternatively, players may choose to not act on their turn and instead pass to see what moves their opponents make.

Once all players have passed consecutively, the war in the current region will be decided by the strengths of the Saxon and Dane armies battling there. Players gain victory points if they are aligned with the winning faction and based on their level of affinity. The focus of the war then moves to the next region, and the battle continues.

After the fate of each of the five regions has been decided, the round ends. After two rounds of play, the player who has accrued the most points wins.

Have you been wanting to play Warhammer 40k but weren't sure that you wanted to drop a bunch of money on a complete 2000 point army, well try out Kill Team! Focusing on squad on squad skirmishes, you'll only be focusing on a handful of models compared to the massive army. Each of these boxes has enough models to build and outfit you own Kill Team. One of the coolest parts about Kill Team, is that these models can also be used I regular games of 40k too.

DUNE... Strategy control game... 8.4 on Board Game Geek...
Need i say more !? haha
I have played this one and very much looking forward to another game soon !!
Absolutely worth having for any strategy board game group of Dune fans alike ! Come down to Merlyn's Spokane and check it out!

Arrakis is a desert world seemingly dead and barren, yet here lies the most important resource in the galaxy: Spice. Without Spice, space travel is impossible, and humans become little clusters on isolated planets. The noble House that controls Arrakis and the production of Spice wields great power. The Emperor gave Arrakis to House Atreides, but then he conspired to replace them with their old rivals, House Harkonnen. Baron Harkonnen crushed the Atreides in a treasonous attack, and now rules the planet with an iron fist. But Paul and Jessica, heirs to House Atreides, are alive, and are mounting a rebellion with the aid of the formidable Fremen, the mysterious inhabitants of the barren expanses of Arrakis.

Only one House will emerge victorious from the coming struggle, while the other will be lost in the desert sands. It's into this grim reality that players will be thrust in Dune: War for Arrakis.

In this asymmetrical strategy game, players fight for control of the planet, maneuvering troops like the Fremen, the Fedaykin, and the fearsome Sardaukar, while sending Spice harvesters into the deep desert, daring to challenge the great Sandworms. The game features an action dice system with numerous event cards that will enable players to retell the Dune saga differently with each playthrough.

Hellsing, a manga I remember from my early highschool days. The OVAs were one of the first animes I really loved, and to this day periodically rewatch. I've had volume one for say, 20 years now, but never filled out the series. There is a rerelease with some translation cleanup, and so I've been finally finishing out that collection.

The Pokémon Trading Card Game is one of the most popular card games out there. In recent years the popularity of the game has boomed, especially with fans who collect the cards. The Pokémon TCG has also seen an increase in people playing the game too, which these Elite Trainer Boxes are excellent for. Each one has 9 booster packs of their respective set, a special promo card, a package of energy, dice, sleeves, and condition markers. Of course these Elite Trainer Boxes are also good for people who just collect the cards. Along with the Elite Trainer Boxes, we have a wide selection of other Pokémon TCG products, from individual boosters, to decks, and other specialty booster products.

Terraforming mars, is in my top three resource management midrange games. Good game base, and the colonies expansion really puts it over the top. I haven't seen all of them together in the same shop in quite a long time, so very neat to see here.

RESISTANCE is another great game for groups that love to mess with their friends !! (in game of course haha) Come grab it while you can and check out our selection of expansions for it as well !

The Empire must fall. Our mission must succeed. By destroying their key bases, we will shatter Imperial strength and liberate our people. Yet spies have infiltrated our ranks, ready for sabotage. We must unmask them. In five nights we reshape destiny or die trying. We are the Resistance!

The Resistance is a party game of social deduction. It is designed for five to ten players, lasts about 30 minutes, and has no player elimination. The Resistance is inspired by Mafia/Werewolf, yet it is unique in its core mechanics, which increase the resources for informed decisions, intensify player interaction, and eliminate player elimination.

Players are either Resistance Operatives or Imperial Spies. For three to five rounds, they must depend on each other to carry out missions against the Empire. At the same time, they must try to deduce the other players’ identities and gain their trust. Each round begins with discussion. When ready, the Leader entrusts sets of Plans to a certain number of players (possibly including himself/herself). Everyone votes on whether or not to approve the assignment. Once an assignment passes, the chosen players secretly decide to Support or Sabotage the mission. Based on the results, the mission succeeds (Resistance win) or fails (Empire win). When a team wins three missions, they have won the game.
