Katie Moranha Publisher Spotlight

Our publisher’s spotlight is back with a classic, The Op (formerly known as Usaopoly). The Op brings our beloved licensed characters to life, with games like Clue: Dungeons & Dragons edition, Operation: Nightmare Before Christmas edition, and Super Mario Chess. They also have created their own unique games, such as Blank Slate, Hues and Clues, and Dungeon Academy. With a blend of the familiar, and our nostalgic love of our favorite movies and TV shows, The Op has a great line up of games and puzzles for everyone to enjoy. Here are some of our favorite board games that will be sold at a 10% discount this month.

Hues and Cues

Hues and Cues great for ages 8 and up

Check out this new party game from The Op. What color comes to mind when you think of the sky? Now what would you think if you hear “sunrise” or “mid-dawn”? That’s the main concept for Hues and Cues! The “cue giver” is given a color out of 480 shades, and needs to give two clues to help you narrow down what color it could be. You’ll earn more points the closer you are to the right color. This game is great for anyone who enjoys Codenames, or Wavelength. Hues and Cues is a fun and quick game for up to 10 people.

Super Cat

Take on RoboDog in this quick and fun card game! This cute cat hero game’s goal is to take on the RoboDog that eats all the cat food, so you have to power up your cats to take them on. Make sure to choose the highest number without being used by other people to transform your cats into heroes! This game is great for families, or people trying to get a quick game in while waiting for food or eating with friends.
