Happy May Long Weekend!
For the holiday weekend we've got a classic favourite: Lemon Meringue Tarts. Surrounded, if you're curious, with Ispahan Cakes on the right and Mini Apple Pies on the left.
Find them at our in-store Patisserie counter.Categories: Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Prairie Ink, Patisserie
Not only is it the weekend, but it's the long weekend. And not only is it the long weekend, but (unfortunately) it looks like it'll be a chilly, rainy few days. Not so great for people itching to get outside... but it's perfect weather to settle yourself warm and dry inside to play some games.
Our suggestion is the 7 Wonders Board Game by Repos Production. Lately this game -- which is our highlighted game for the months of May and June, as seen in our newsletter -- has been flying off our shelves. We're getting shipments in every week, and those boxes don't sit long in our stores! It's little wonder why: 7 Wonders is one of the most awarded board games in the world!
In 7 Wonders you lead one of the seven great cities of the Ancient world. Exploit the natural resources of your lands, take part in the eternal march of progress, develop your commercial relationships, and assert your military might. Then leave your mark in the history of civilization by building an architectural marvel that will transcend the ages to come!
The game is designed for 2 to 7 players, ages 13 and up. One round typically takes half an hour.
And stay tuned: In the near future we'll be getting the 7 Wonders expansion pack, which (as the name suggests) adds another seven wonders to the game! These additions include the Great Wall of China, Stonehenge, and more. We've got some on order, and we're hoping to get them in stock very soon.
In the meantime, get yourself into the wonderful world of 7 Wonders with the base game! Available in both our Winnipeg and Saskatoon stores.

Over a storied career, Daniel C. Dennett has engaged questions about science and the workings of the mind. His answers have combined rigorous argument with strong empirical grounding. And a lot of fun.

Alongside well-known favourites like Occam's Razor, Dennett presents some of his own creations: Trapped in the Robot Control Room, Beware of the Prime Mammal and The Wandering Two-Bitser. A sweeping work of intellectual seriousness that's also studded with impish delights, Intuition Pumps offers intrepid thinkers in all walks of life delicious opportunities to explore their pet ideas with new powers.Categories: Saskatoon, Winnipeg, New Releases
