THE JOYS OF TABLETOP DAY


Hello, Uber Cool fans!

Board games are wonderful. Full stop. It doesn't matter if you're building up Catan, fighting back Arkham Horror's monsters, or taking over the world in Risk, we all have fond memories of playing a game with family and friends. That's why we were so excited to take part in Project Play's International Tabletop Day last Saturday, where we got to show off our collection and let off steam with dice, tokens, and cards.

Of course, just because Tabletop Day is over doesn't mean the games have to stop. We still have two walls of shelves full of exciting board and card games to buy, along with game nights where you can try them for yourself. The fun never ends!

And that's scratching the surface - we're still bringing in all kinds of toys and gadgets you'll enjoy. What's more, we'll be celebrating Free Comic Book Day with the rest of Downtown London this Saturday May 6th. Whether you're looking for a fun game, geeky loot, or just a place to chat about Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (Baby Groot! Aaaaaaah!), Uber Cool is still the place to be. So pull up a chair! We're always happy to see you.

Cheers,
-Kayla

UBER COOL ITEMS OF THE DAY

FAST SLING PUCK

Who will be the fastest? The goal is to pass, as soon as possible, all the chips from his camp in the opposing camp. The fast slingpuck is played with one hand. The pucks may be propelled only by using elastic. Each player begins the game with 5 pucks, it positions or he wants in his camp (except before the ''trap''). Both players play simultaneously. To start a round, players will clap hands. Here we go!

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER BOARD GAME
In Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Board Game, you help Buffy and her friends defend the town of Sunnydale from an onslaught of vampires and demons, while ultimately attempting to foil the big bad's plot and prevent the Hellmouth from opening. You have to work together, using all of your resources — including special abilities for the character that you play, whether Willow, Spike, or Buffy herself — to defend the helpless townies.

LABYRINTH BOARD GAME
"Give me the child. Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen, for my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom as great."

Jim Henson's Labyrinth: The Board Game is a beautiful exploration of the movie for 1-5 players in which Sarah, Ludo, Sir Didymus and Hoggle must adventure through the labyrinth and make their way to the goblin city to save Toby from Jareth, the goblin king!

ANOMIA X

The award-winning party game is back - with bad manners and an oversized martini. Anomia X pokes a stick at the underbelly of society, and the results are decidedly NSFW!

Anomia X is simple. Players flip category cards until the symbols on two players' cards match. Matching players race to give an example of the category on their opponent's card. Sounds easy, right? Think again.
 

SPY ALLEY
From Mata Hari to James Bond, spies and secret agents have filled our imaginations. Now, you have the chance to play spy and counter spy in a dark alley - SPY ALLEY. Deceptively simple and surprisingly intense, Spy Alley keeps you on the edge of your seat. The first spy to complete their mission or the last to retain their identity wins the game. For 2-6 players ages 8 and up. It takes about 45 minutes to play a game.
