Gamewright announced 5 new family friendly games coming out soon: Super Tooth a quick playing family dinosaur themed card game for 2-4 players ages 5+. It's a set collection game that will have you gathering sets of plant eating dinosaurs to trade for points. Players will need to avoid the carnivores and deal with perilous landscape events. If you or the children you game with are fans of dinosaurs (and honestly who isn't?) you should check out Super Tooth which should be releasing soon.
Trap the Triceratops! Apprehend the Apatosaurus! Race to capture sets of mathcing dinosaurs in this ferociously fun card game. The bigger the set, the bigger your reward. But don’t bite off more than you can chew, or you may fall prey to a Velociraptor, a volcano, or even the dreaded T. Rex! Collect the most sets and you’ll go down in prehistory!Go Nuts! a dice rolling push your luck game. Go Nuts! was first published in 2008 and takes just 12-15 minutes for 2-5 players. Players will roll dice looking for acorns and set aside dice that come up as cars. But watch out, if they roll all acorns things will get crazy in a super 'Go Nuts!' round! check out the publisher description below:
In Go Nuts!, players want to pile up the acorn points as quickly as they can. On a turn, the active player takes five squirrel dice and rolls them. Any dice showing cars are set aside out of play, while any acorns are worth one point. After each roll, the player can decide to stop and bank the acorn points or roll again. If they ever roll only squirrels on the dice, they lose any points accumulated that turn and must call out “Go nuts!”, now rolling all five dice as quickly as possible and calling out the total number of acorns rolled as they go. All other players are simultaneously rolling one dog die each, which shows a doghouse on five sides and a dog on one. As soon as an opponent rolls a dog, that player barks; once all the opponents have barked, the active player stops rolling and scores all acorns rolled in this special “go nuts” round. Players take turns until someone scores fifty or more points, thereby winning the game!Sleeping Queens. Nominated for a Golden Geek Best Kids' Board Game award in 2006 and plays 2-5 players ages 8 and up. Publisher description:
