Game Night | with Cheeky Parrot Games

November 23, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In a first for Scorpio Books, join us and Cheeky Parrot Games for an in-store game night! We’ll be joined by Andy Bell, creator of the new game Ulterior Design, who’ll talk briefly about the game design process, and introduce us to Ulterior Design as well as some other great games from Cheeky Parrot. Tables will be set up to give the games a go yourself – plus you’ll get to browse Scorpio after hours!

Game playing from 6pm-7pm with time for browsing (and game buying!) afterwards. You are welcome to attend as a pair, a group, or by yourself – all are welcome.

This event is free to attend and refreshments will be provided – please RSVP to rsvp@scorpiobooks.co.nz for catering purposes.


Ulterior Design is a quick card game of competitive home decorating.

Judges from Decor Rate magazine are headed to your area to find the most on-trend homes to feature in their publication. You always try to keep up with the latest home decorating trends so you are anticipating glory. It’s time to throw yourself into decorating your home, influencing what is trending, and sneakily sabotaging your neighbours’ homes. You’ll have to keep your own combination of indoor plants, paintings, and lamps just right to impress the editor-judges, who can drop in any time.

Do this by adding one card, in an overlapping fashion, to your home, the trend area, or an opponent’s home. Then top up your hand and draw an event card to see if there’s a judge at your door!

The first player to earn the approval of three judges by collecting three awards will win this clever card game.
