Aaron Billingham The Last Dance 3-5
Played over three dances players must manoeuvre their way to different partners within the dancing to pick up conversation snippets. When they have the right combinations they can dance their way to queen and impress her with the combined knowledge – trading in conversation cards for points. Dancers who follow the line of the dance though, can earn enough ‘style’ to be forgiven for larger, faux-pas, movements that get them more quickly to the right partners.

James Naylor Magnate 4
Magnate is a mid-weight strategy game for 1-5 players in which you play a property developer out to make as much money as you can in a city-wide property boom. To win, you’ll need to snap up valuable plots of land and make strategic choices about what to build on them from a range of realistic 3D commercial, industrial and residential buildings: all in the hopes of attracting high value tenants. But beware: as the city organically emerges, everything you build will also open up new opportunities for your opponents. Will you make a fortune? Or will you be caught out when the boom inevitably turns to bust?
