All games on this page are free “print and play” games. That means there’s a file that you can download and print out all the main components you need to play the game. You might be required to supply your own pawns or timers, but they’re usually easy to find around the house. Enjoy!
Game Title: This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us
Genre: Area Control, Strategy
Designed by: Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim
Concept: In the game, players play cowboys as they place tiles and create areas within the town. Unfortunately each tile could have your cowboys on them, or other players’ cowboys – or cowboys from all players! Once an area is fully surrounded by fences you score that area. Look out for silver bars as they allow players to re-arrange one tile that has yet to be locked down!
Game Title: Cream of the Crop
Genre: Abstract Strategy
Designed by: Jay Cormier and Don Kirkby
Concept: Competing farmers are all trying to use the same farmland to grow their crops. They realized that in order to keep the pests away it’s best to mix the crops they grow onto the same field. The challenge is that the farmers can’t agree on who should plant which crops.
Players use seeds (coins) or dice to move their tractors (pawns) around the board while trying to form patterns with the seeds. Successful patterns are rewarded with prizes from the county fair, and collecting enough prizes wins the game. The seeds grow four different crops: arms are almonds, crowns are corn, moons are melons, and suns are sunflower seeds.
