Your pulse races as diamond fever rises. No wonder: the adventurers delve into the cave, which is sparkling with diamonds, and try to bring our as many jewels as possible. But uncanny dangers and malicious researchers play an evil game in the cave. Now you must flee or risk everything in order to win with the largest treasure.

Diamant (also published as Incan Gold) is a quick, fun game of bluff and daring in which explorers push their luck while exploring in search of gold and treasure. In each round, you decide whether to delve deeper into the temple, adding to your riches, or escape with the share you've acquired so far. Every time an explorer braves new territory, more gems and dangers appear. Giant spiders, mummies and fire can cause you to lose everything. Is it worth the risk? You decide. But if you leave, those who remain in the temple may acquire a bigger share of each stash of jewels yet to be found.

Incan Gold:

You and your fellow adventurers explore the ruins of an ancient Incan temple, looking for turquoise, obsidian, and gold. At every turn, you must decide whether to play it safe by returning to camp with the treasure you've gathered so far; or to be a truly intrepid adventurer and keep on exploring.

Going farther into the ruins means risking your treasure by falling victim to giant spiders, wandering mummies, fire spouts, and venomous snakes! But priceless Incan artifacts are rumored to exist here...and you can be the one to discover them if you conquer your fears and forge ahead!

  • A very nice press-your-luck game that seems to captivate everyone. The amount of howls and moans as a second hazard strikes a player is hilarious. My family really enjoys this type of game, and the way that this one involves all players at the same time is awesome. It's also really nice that, with enough guts and luck, players can come back from any deficit.The one issue is that you really should play with a large group (6 to 8 players is ideal.) With less players, one good round will often determine who wins. You also need to have everyone within easy reach of the stones. If one player has to pass out all the stones to all the players they will get sick of the game really quickly. But the game works really well with players of almost any age.
  • Very nice, fun filler! The tension builds and people shout in disappointment or scream with glee. Great fun. ;-)
  • Scarlet Pimpernel retheme
  • --Sept2005-- Very nice push-your-luck game. I like it a lot. The scaling to 8 players is good, and the gameplay is really a load of fun. What makes it most compelling for me is that this is one of the very few games that everyone in my family (children 10M,5F,3M) will play.

#Megaland - I sold Machi Koro (Becky and I didn't like it but the kids did) and essentially replaced it with this game.  I played it once before at a game group and Target had a buy 2 get 1 free deal going.  We played as a family this weekend and everyone loved it and it plays much better than either #Machi Koro or #Diamant of which Megaland seems to be a combination of sorts.  I can see us playing this a lot more in the near future.

#Gloomhaven but not the board game the online Steam version.  I started a 4-character play on the "insane" difficulty level and have to say it is quite the challenge!  I've lost two times on the same scenario but looking forward to running through it again.  I am playing a 2 character campaign with another buddy online as well and we have a blast doing that many mornings at 4:30am.

#Maracaibo - I tought Becky how to play this weekend and she seemed to enjoy it.  I can tell she is more comfortable with a higher complexity game.  I had been looking forward to getting this to the table again and was thrilled to play.

I always enjoyed board games, but was only aware of part/family-type games until a friend introduced me to #Catan 15 years or so ago.  I got the variant called #The Settlers of Zarahemla Board Game which became a favorite, then obtained #Carcassonne: Hunters & Gatherers which was fun.  I still really wasn't connected to the hobby yet.  Fast forward another 10 years and a guy at our office started bringing in a bunch of hobby games for us to play during lunch or once a week that intrigued me...like #Tsuro and #Diamant.  Around that time I found the Tabletop YouTube channel and really enjoyed watching them play a variety of games.  I picked up #Betrayal at House on the Hill (sold) which led to fun and aggrevating times with the family. #Near and Far (still own) was my first "big" purchase and while we didn't complete the campaign, we've played different maps many times and my eyes were opened to look for other games.  Since then I learned that I can sell games that I enjoyed but didn't play very often and use the money towards new games.  I've enjoyed exploring different themes and mechanics.  My only limiting factor is I don't have a steady game group...I can get my older children to play heavier games at times, and can play online with a friend and other in person every few weeks.  But certainly not as much as I would like.  When I run across a game that my entire family enjoys (like #Chinatown and #Las Vegas Royale) I typically keep them, so over time I have built up a nice little collection.  And sometimes I just buy a game for me (like #Empires of the Void II) that I just want to play but know I won't very often.
