Take the role of brave heroes and heroines with a mission to save your magical land. Create your character and give them a unique name. Get your equipment, upgrade it and prepare for battle.

In Chronicles of Avel players will be exploring the world of Avel, moving on a modular board created from hexagonal tiles (different every time). On their journey they will encounter dangerous monsters to fight and roll dice to determine success. Each victory leads to a prize - new weapon, armor, potions and gold - which will make heroes more powerful and unstoppable. But to earn equipment players will have to search through magical bag and choose using only their sense of touch. Victory awaits for those who will cooperate, prepare themselves and defeat the Beast and all his servants." —description from the publisher Music provided by Lofi Girl - Listen: bit.ly/lofigirI-playlists ************************************************** Subscribe for new videos ❤️ and hit the notification bell 🔔 for updates https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS3nQCBdRehEuMDZA9ztAWg?sub_confirmation=1 Shop https://www.thenerdshelves.com/shop All proceeds go to The BC Children's Hospital Discord Message us for an invite website http://www.thenerdshelves.com Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/164157464310404/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/the_nerd_shelves/ Twitter https://twitter.com/Thenerdshelves email thenerdshelves@gmail.com Powered by Restream https://restream.io/

You take on the role of a houseplant enthusiast trying to create the coziest interior space by collecting and arranging houseplants and other objects within your home. You must position your plants so that they are provided the most suitable light conditions and take care of them to create the most verdant collection. Each turn, you select an adjacent pair of a card and token, then use those items to build an ever-expanding tableau of cards that represents your home. You need to keep various objectives in mind as you attempt to increase plant verdancy by making spatial matches and using item tokens to take various nurture actions.

It's survival of the fittest as you compete to build the largest, most dominant pack by claiming territory, recruiting lone wolves, and hunting prey. But be careful not to expand too recklessly into terrain where your rivals thrive – they may lure members of your pack away. A clever action-selection mechanism drives your choices. Each action requires you to flip terrain tiles matching the terrain where you wish to take your action. These double-sided tiles mean the actions you take this round will set up which terrain types you can act on in the next round. As you take actions to expand your pack's control of each region, you also upgrade your pack's attributes, allowing you to take more aggressive actions as the game goes on. In three mid-game scoring phases, power is calculated in each region. At the end of the game, players tally points based on VP tokens earned in these scoring phases and the highest VP number revealed in each of the six tracks on your player board. The player with the most VP wins!" —description from publisher Music provided by Lofi Girl - Listen: bit.ly/lofigirI-playlists ************************************************** Subscribe for new videos ❤️ and hit the notification bell 🔔 for updates https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS3nQCBdRehEuMDZA9ztAWg?sub_confirmation=1 Shop https://www.thenerdshelves.com/shop All proceeds go to The BC Children's Hospital website http://www.thenerdshelves.com Discord https://discord.gg/NRqEES5cbn Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/164157464310404/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/the_nerd_shelves/Twitter https://twitter.com/Thenerdshelves email thenerdshelves@gmail.com

In the game, players take turns selecting new cards for their forest from three growth piles. Each time you look at a pile, you may select it and add those cards to your rainforest tableau, or return the pile face down, adding one additional card to it. As the piles grow, you must search for the plants and animals that will benefit your forest the most — but choose carefully as the jungle also contains dangers in the form or fire, disease, and drought." —description from the publisher Music provided by Lofi Girl * Listen: https://fanlink.to/lofigirl-music ************************************************** Subscribe for new videos ❤️ and hit the notification bell 🔔 for updates https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS3nQCBdRehEuMDZA9ztAWg?sub_confirmation=1 Shop https://www.thenerdshelves.com/shop All proceeds go to The BC Children's Hospital Discord https://discord.gg/HEQKfSMd website http://www.thenerdshelves.com Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/164157464310404/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/the_nerd_shelves/Twitter https://twitter.com/Thenerdshelves email thenerdshelves@gmail.com Powered by Restream https://restream.io/

Waiting Screen 00:00:00 No Audio 00:00:46 Intro 00:04:12 Rules Teach 00:21:31 Playthrough 00:39:55 Trophy Celebration 01:56:50 Boardgame giveaway 01:59:07 Chat 02:02:21 Secret Ending 02:21:50 "Cascadia is a puzzly tile-laying and token-drafting game featuring the habitats and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest. In the game, you take turns building out your own terrain area and populating it with wildlife. You start with three hexagonal habitat tiles (with five types of habitat in the game), and on a turn you choose a new habitat tile that's paired with a wildlife token, then place that tile next to your other ones and place the wildlife token on an appropriate habitat. (Each tile depicts 1-3 types of wildlife from the five types in the game, and you can place at most one tile on a habitat.) Four tiles are on display, with each tile being paired at random with a wildlife token, so you must make the best of what's available — unless you have a nature token to spend so that you can pick your choice of each item. Ideally you can place habitat tiles to create matching terrain that reduces fragmentation and creates wildlife corridors, mostly because you score for the largest area of each type of habitat at game's end, with a bonus if your group is larger than each other player's. At the same time, you want to place wildlife tokens so that you can maximize the number of points scored by them, with the wildlife goals being determined at random by one of the three scoring cards for each type of wildlife. Maybe hawks want to be separate from other hawks, while foxes want lots of different animals surrounding them and bears want to be in pairs.
