Silver & Gold is from one of our favorite game designers, Phil Walker-Harding. This small card game is full of depth and engaging gameplay. Gamers must use markers to cross off polyomino shapes on their treasure cards to score points. Silver & Gold is full of tactile goodness and plenty of opportunities for players to improve their spatial reasoning skills. Did I mention you get to write on cards? Don’t worry; they’re erasable, and the quality components ensure you’ll be playing this one for a while!

Distant islands, golden treasures—who hasn’t dreamed of them?! You are in luck, because the treasure is in your hands.

Players must rain X’s down, rapid fire, in the right configurations to close out island cards and hit the right bonuses before they can jump to the next card. Silver and Gold is a game of luck, bad luck, quick manipulation and exhilaration. You’ve found your fortune.
