The Beer Baron, having made the last stop in his yearly delivery trip, asks the party to escort his caravan to his estate.

How will our heroes handle themselves?

New Titles Announced from Mayfair Games

Booty! (MFG 4138, $35.00 MSRP) 

A game for 2-6 players, ages 10+ and plays in approx. 60 minutes.

Treasures of all types! But the hard part is not capturing the ship’s bounty, but dividing it fairly to the pirates! Players take turns splitting each round’s booty into shares for the other players. Different types of treasures have different values, and of course there’s the hidden items to keep people guessing. Will you be the quartermaster to give everyone their fair share–but giving yourself the best share?

Balancing what you need, what others might want, and trying to get a little extra into your treasure pile is the key to success!

Star Trek: Five Year Mission (MFG 4139, $35.00 MSRP)

A Cooperative Game for 3-7 Crewmates, ages 10+, By David E. Whitcher

You are about to begin your 5-year mission aboard the USS Enterprise. But which one - Classic Enterprise NCC-1701 or the Next Generation NCC 1701-D?
ALERT! You and your fellow crewmates must cooperate to resolve dangerous situations that threaten to destroy your ship. Solving threats is the way you score points for your crew and win the game. If you fail, you all lose. 

Each crewmate has a unique ability. These abilities can help the team solve alerts. Use your skills wisely to give your crew the best chance at success.

So, which is the crew for you—The Original Series, or the Next Generation?
