Shopping for the gamers in your life can be challenging. Don’t worry, we’re here to help! We’ve got suggestions for every Magic player, role player, and tabletop gamer on your list.

Tabletop Gamers

The possibilities are endless when you’re shopping for a tabletop enthusiast! With so many games to choose from, finding the perfect game is no problem.

mysterium

Mysterium: What happens if you take CLUE and squish it together with Dixit? You get this amazing and beautiful cooperative party game! One player takes on the role of a ghost, and everyone else are psychics trying to help the ghost move on by solving an old murder mystery. Unable to talk, the ghost communicates through visions represented by weird illustrated cards. The psychics must decipher these visions and help the ghost remember who murdered them! The art of Mysterium is beautiful! Plus one expansion is currently available with more pretty things! If you’re look for a creative good time with friends, look no further!

Pandemic: If you’re looking for a great cooperative gaming experience, look no further! Pandemic is a fantastic pick for your friends that prefer to avoid competitive games and would rather work towards a common goal. In this case, the goal is to prevent an outbreak of multiple diseases that could end the world! Pandemic also has a lots of expansions to add variety to gameplay as well as spin offs such as Pandemic: Legacy, The Cure, Iberia, & Rein of Cthulhu that will feel familiar to experienced Pandemic players but with new rules & themes to challenge players.

Dead of Winter: Has someone you know played Betrayal at House on the Hill so many times that they’ve practically memorized every possible scenario? Give them something new to play with Dead of Winter! Like Betrayal, Dead of Winter is a horror co-op game that tells a different story every time you play. Additionally, there is a possibility that someone among you may be a traitor! Tensions build as players are given a limited number of rounds to accomplish a shared goal as well as a secret goal of their own.

Smash Up: Smash Up is a game with near endless possibilities! Make a team composed of two factions and play them together to win victory points and foil your opponent’s’ plans. Smash Up offers an amazing variety of gameplay experience through the myriad of possible faction combinations. Give them a few expansions for even more choices! Since there are factions as diverse as kittens and robots, there’s a faction for everyone in your game group.

Magic Players

What should you get the Magic player who has everything? They play in tournaments with the most competitive decks and have a collection of cards big enough to open their own store. It seems like they have every card they need. You’d like to give them a great gift that shows them you appreciate them and support their favorite hobby but you don’t know where to begin. We recommend you try Magic accessories!
