Welkin

 

 

 

 

 

 

You are dreaming about evading in the islands? To travel above the sky and further than the horizon? Be glad as you now are a celestial construction manager, architect of the sky! Collect animal and plant ressources, assemble them and add a little life spirit: congratulations! You just built an island in the sky!

The aim of the game is to win the most gold by crafting and selling those famous floating islands. Each turn, the players/architects can either select a new island creation contract, produce resources amongst the 5 existing types, or allocate these resources on their contracts to craft them. Players have limited spaces to store these contracts and resources, so they’ll have to juggle with their production line to complete their objectives in an optimized manner!

As soon as a contract is fulfilled, it is immediately sold and its creator receives gold depending on the resources used for its creation… but their value isn’t fixed and depends on the current market! Is it better to get one’s rewards immediately, or to manipulate the resources’ values for a greater reward later…?

Once there’s no more contracts available, the game ends. The architect who amassed the most gold will get their place amongst the stars!

Cartographers (A Roll Player Tale)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Queen Gimnax has ordered the reclamation of the northern lands. As a cartographer in her service, you are sent to map this territory, claiming it for the Kingdom of Nalos. Through official edicts, the queen announces which lands she prizes most, and you will increase your reputation by meeting her demands. But you are not alone in this wilderness. The Dragul contest your claims with their outposts, so you must draw your lines carefully to reduce their influence. Reclaim the greatest share of the queen’s desired lands and you will be declared the greatest cartographer in the kingdom.

In Cartographers, players compete to earn the most reputation stars by the time four seasons have passed. Each season, players draw on their map sheets and earn reputation by carrying out the queen’s edicts before the season is over. The player with the most reputation stars at the end of winter wins!

Thieves Den

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Thieves Den, set in the world of 10 Minute Heist: The Wizard’s Tower, the players are master thieves who send their hirelings out into the city to nab the choicest treasures, then sell those ill-gotten gains to the underworld fences to increase the master thief’s reputation. Certain treasures can also be bartered to Alazar, the wizard, for special powers.

Thieves Den is played over three rounds. In each round, each player drafts three location cards as potential targets for their thieving. All of these locations are public knowledge, and in the next phase the players take turns sending their minions to the locations to score the loot. You can send your thieves to any of the locations, but if you send them to another player’s location, that player may also get a prize, sometimes extra treasure, sometimes more thieves. During this phase, players can also send thieves to carry special assortments of treasures to one of the fences, gaining that player reputation points. Bonus reputation points can also be earned by building relationships with specific fences.

After three rounds, the player with the highest reputation is the new crime lord of the town.

Mental Blocks

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ready, set, Puzzle!

Mental Blocks is the frenetic, nail biting 3D puzzle game you will never want to put up.  Players must work together to solve 3d puzzles varying from entry level to hardcore head-scratchers before time runs out!  Each player has their own secret perspective to the puzzle, but there’s a catch!

Every person has a restriction: some players can only touch certain blocks, some can only touch certain shapes, some cannot speak.  This leads to delectable disarray as player scurry to solve each puzzle in real-time to graduate to the next puzzle – each ramping in difficulty as you proceed.

Mental Blocks features two different modes (Family or Challenge) to fit everyone’s tastes!

Conspiracy: The Solomon Gambit

 

 

 

 

 

 

The briefcase is out in the open, and six freelance agents are in the field.

In Conspiracy: The Solomon Gambit, a restoration of the 1973 classic game conspiracy, players vie for control of the agents by secretly paying them off and using them to move the briefcase across Europe, trying to get it to their HQ. But other players can challenge and stop an agent from moving if they have paid more than you — and for the right price they can even assassinate another agent.

In addition to a slick new look, this restored edition offers two new twists on the original gameplay. First, each agent has a unique ability that lets them move an agent or the briefcase for free. Second, an alternate win condition eliminates stalling and potential stalemates. If no one wins within a certain number of turns, Dr. Solomon can end the game immediately, and whoever has paid off the most to him wins the game. However, if you pay off too much to Dr. Solomon early in the game, that can leave you with little control over the other agents, forcing you to strike a tricky balance between immediate and long-term goals.

It: Evil Below

 

 

 

 

 

 

In USAopoly’s new IT: Evil Below board game, you and up to six of your friends will take on the roles of the Losers’ Club in an attempt to stop Pennywise from terrorizing the town of Derry. Each character has specialized abilities, and working together is crucial – if even one player dies, Pennywise wins.

Team 3 (Green & Pink)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Three monkeys have started a construction company, and the building blueprints are coming in quick! Now the monkeys have to work together to complete their blueprints before time runs out.

The game of TEAM3 is played in teams of three players, with each player taking on the role of one of the three monkeys: the monkey who can’t speak, the monkey who can’t see, or the monkey in the middle.

  • The monkey who can’t speak is the only one who can see the the blueprint card with the outline of the structure that their team must build, but they are not allowed to talk. They can communicate only in gestures.
  • The monkey in the middle must interpret the gestures of the monkey who can’t speak and relay them to the monkey who can’t see so that they can build the structure.
  • The monkey who can’t see is the only one who can touch the pieces, but they must play the game with their eyes closed. They are responsible for building the structure, based on the directions given to them by the monkey in the middle.

Each version of TEAM3 comes with a different set of blueprints and a mini expansion.

Fifth Edition Fantasy & Mutant Crawl Classics Adventures

 

 

 

 

 

 

Secrets of Miscutter Isle is a new level 5 adventure for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition! Mistcutter Isle has always had a dark history. For years the isolated isle served as a haunt for pirates and smugglers looking to hide their ill-gotten gains. But before that, legend has that the Isle was home to a race of savage, sea-dwelling creatures that enslaved other races. Somewhere on the Isle, it is said, is their hidden temple. Such tales have not always been believed, but recently sailors have seen unusual purple lights in the sky above the Isle. Something is happening, and those with long memories fear that evil is afoot. Do the adventurers dare investigate the secrets of Mistcutter Isle?
