Gnome Games announces the 2020 Stocking Stuffer of the Year – L.L.A.M.A. by Amigo Games!
Each year Gnome Games selects one game as the Stocking Stuffer of the Year. The selection criteria include fun factor, replayability, value, and of course the ability to fit inside the normal stocking. The Gnomes do not accept rewards, payment or consideration from the manufacturer in the selection of this award, and evaluate the games by playing them with friends, family, customers, and most importantly with kids as part of the Gnome Games Community Outreach and Family Game Night Program.
The 2020 Stocking stuffer of the Year is L.L.A.M.A – from Amigo Games.
Try to get rid of all your cards so you don’t take any markers, but if you can’t you have a real dillama—should I pick another card or quit? Maybe you can play that card later, but if not you’ve just hurt your score. The player with the fewest markers wins in this game with the name that says it all: Don’t Let Llamas And Markers Accumulate!
- Nominated for the 2019 Spiel des Jahres
- Unique scoring system adds strategy and risk
- From well-known inventor Reiner Knizia (600+ games published)
- Made in Germany—European quality and tariff-free!
20 Minutes to Play
2 – 6 Players
How to Play LLAMA

Bring your new, unworn socks to any Gnome Games store during the Gnome Games Holiday Sock Drive. We’ll get them on the feet of some folks that can really use them.

We will take the socks to shelters and other facilities throughout the holiday season, and share that with you on the Gnome Games Community Outreach Facebook Page when we do
We especially need Adult Socks for the Holiday Sock Drive
While feet of all sizes really appreciate warm socks, we learned from the past years Gnome Games Holiday Sock Driver that adult sized socks are in the greatest need. If you are shopping for a reason, please consider getting warm adult sized socks for this year’s gift. The to someone you don’t even know. probably has big feet!
As a small Thank you – Save on great games when you donate new socks!

Bring the smack down to the table with the Primaris Chaplain!
Preorder your new Space Marines and Necrons and the Gnomes will have them waiting for you Saturday October 10, and don’t forget if Games Workshop sells it, we’ll do everything within our power get it for you!

Gnome Games will continue to bring fun and games to your tables despite COVID-19.
From the Head Gnome – Pat Fuge Last Updated – Thursday July 9, 2020
All of us at Gnome Games know you rely on our stores to bring the finest in tabletop games, puzzles and diversions to your tables. We are going to continue to do that, despite the situation presented by the coronavirus, affectionately known as COVID-19. I would like to keep you abreast of how we are going to do this safely for both you our customers as well as the most important part of Gnome Games, our staff.
We are open for shopping and Masks are required
Here’s what Gnome Games is doing to keep fun at the tables
First and foremost, we have a high concern for our staff and your personal safety. Gnome Games will follow all CDC and Wisconsin Department of Health guidelines in hosting and our attendance of events We will also maintain a high focus and attention to in store hygiene and cleanliness. As these guidelines may change, we will adapt our operations to meet them. These are all preventative measures to protect staff and customers, especially those who are in COVID-19 High Risk groups. Want to learn more – visit their websites. It’s always best to get the news from the source.
All Random Player Interaction In Store Play is suspended until further notice
To keep the Gnome Games Staff and families of the communities we play in safe, we are suspending all in store play opportunities effective immediately. The less chance we give this bug to spread the better off we will all be, so we are doing our small part, by closing the demo libraries and suspending all in store play. We will reschedule as the situation allows once the COVID-19 threat has passed.
You and your small group can come in and play by appointment only
To allow you to play on our tables we require a reservation and are limiting your group size. You must all wear masks at all times and must make the reservation ahead of time by contacting the store you want to play at. We can facilitate Pokemon Play, Yu Gi Oh Play, Magic and other card games, have tables for miniatures and board games.
Masks must be worn at all times and there is a fee for this. Simply call or message the store you want to play at via Facebook
Gnome Games will continue to provide you with a safe place to shop
We have cancelled all in store and community outreach events , but you can still shop in the store for games to take home and play. We will monitor this situation closely and keep you informed about any changes in our schedules via our website and all of the Gnome Games Facebook pages. You can also have us deliver to your front door, or order games and puzzles for curbside pickup from all of the Gnome Games stores.
Cleaning and Disinfecting
We’ll do a lot of extra cleaning and wiping with bleach and other CDC approved cleaners throughout the day to keep all counters, tabletops and contact surfaces as clean as possible. We’ll also take additional measures at the checkout area, and you may see our staff wearing gloves as we handle transactions. Gloves protect them, and please don’t be offended if they are wearing them. If you would like, they will also remove shrink wrap from your games before you leave.
We’ll need a little help from you as our customer and guest as well
Gnome Games is going to need a little help with keeping the store clean and safe for you and our staff as well. While we are asking you to help – we’ll also make sure you get a few reminders if you need them as well. Please understand that if a Gnome Games staff asks you to do something, it’s because we want to make everyone’s experience a safe and fun one.
If you are sick or not feeling well, please stay home
If you are sick, have a cough, fever or other symptoms of the flu or COVID-19, we ask that you stay home. This doesn’t mean you can’t get a game or puzzle and I’ll cover that in a bit, but it does mean that we may ask you to leave if we observe any symptoms. It’s not because we don’t like you, it’s because we do, and we want to see you back at our tables when you are healthy.
Wear your mask. Properly
Wash your hands, a lot.
We’ll ask you to wash your hands at our events – a lot. Like after every round of a tournament. You’ll be touching other people’s cards or rolling those dice that were in the bag with those other dice that you took to Mordor and back. Who knows what could be on those! So, we’ll remind you to wash your hands after every round and give you some time to do it as well.
Spirit of the Game
You all know what that means. But in the wake of COVID-19, we are amending the rules just a bit. First, start-of-match handshakes are out. Knuckle bumps, under table toe taps, or Vulcan Hand Salutes are in. We’ll continue to have fun without sharing the germs.
Get some Game!
Gnome Games will provide Gnome Home Delivery – directly to your doorstep! We’ll bring you games to play, even if you are in a self-quarantine situation! Delivery service is available daily, and curbside contactless pickup is also available
An Ounce of Prevention…
All of these measures are preventative, to protect the Gnome Games staff and customers. We’ll keep updating them as the CDC, Department of Health and other agencies adapt to the COVID-19 situation. At the end of the day, Gnome Games will continue to provide you with the very best in tabletop fun at home or at our stores. We want to thank you for your support in this, and look forward to playing with you! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly via email here
