Dead Man’s Cabal


 

 

 

 

 

You’ve conquered death and mastered all nine dimensions of space-time. Reality bends to your every whim and desire. You are the absolute best there ever has been, a necromancer at the top of their game. The only downside is that no one likes you on account of the creeping around with dead bodies and the lack of sunlight. But who needs friends when you can make them?

Power Rangers: Heroes of the Grid


 

 

 

 

 

Power Rangers: Heroes of the Grid gives each player the chance to take the role of a Power Ranger, the heroes of Angel Grove who defend the earth against the evil Rita Repulsa and her nefarious minions. Each Ranger comes with a unique combat deck representing their special skills and fighting style. From the Red Ranger’s leadership karate skills, to the Yellow Ranger’s Sabertooth ferocity, to the Blue Ranger’s tactical mind, each ranger brings a unique set of skills to the table. You need to use your powers well if you intend to save Angel Grove!

In each game, you need to protect four combat zones that are being targeted by the evil Rita Repulsa. Each round, enemy forces deploy onto these zones and cause chaos among the populace. Who knows what sort of strange monsters Rita has cooked up for the Rangers this time?

During play, Rangers must manage their actions and coordinate their defenses, moving to the locations under the most threat and doing battle with enemies. Finding time to rest and recover between engagements as they prepare to defeat the mastermind behind this plot.

During battle, each Ranger and each enemy in the location participate in the combat sequence. Enemy cards represent enemy actions and health. Rangers can attack these cards to disrupt their attacks. Each minion card the rangers defeat removes one minion figure from that location. Monsters are much deadlier foes with a variety of special attacks that you’ll need to deal with and defeat before you send them packing! A Ranger’s combat deck represents their health, with each card played and blow sustained slowly whittling away at their options. They’ll need to find time to rest or power-up at the Command Center if they want to stay fresh for the next fight!

As the Rangers defeat enemies and progress through the game, they’ll unlock Zord cards which provide them unique abilities and special actions they can perform. Eventually they’ll be able to unleash the full power of the mighty Megazord!

Each game reaches its climax with a confrontation with the enemy Master, a devastatingly powerful foe who must be thwarted if the Rangers wish to save the city! Do you have what it takes?

Also Available:

  • Shattered Grid Expansion
  • Ranger Dice Set
  • Megazord Deluxe Figure

Deadly Doodles


 

 

 

 

 

In this quick-playing doodle game, 1–4 players simultaneously draw paths through a dangerous dungeon. Draw cards, draw a path through your dungeon, and rack up points! Collect loot and fight monsters . . . or run away screaming! Can you defeat the dragon for the big score?

Scuttle!


 

 

 

 

 

In this fast-playing card game, players scheme, battle and steal to be the first to collect 21 doubloons. Each turn either draw a card or play a card – cards can be played as either treasure or as an action. Do you want to draw 2 cards, or steal the treasure chest your opponent just played? Or would you rather wipe the board…knowing that your booty is protected!

Make use of monkeys, rodent-powered cannons, sneaky rats and loyal parrots to protect your treasure from the other pirates. The waters are treacherous, so take what you can, and give nothing back. But be warned – dead men tell no tales!

Passtally


 

 

 

 

 

The Japanese game that has everyone talking.  A snap to teach, but rich in strategy and depth: prepare to be hooked on Passtally.

In Passtally, players compete by strategically placing tiles in the hopes of creating the cleverest connecting routes between their pieces.  Tiles are stacked to alter existing routes and add victory (or chaos) to existing structures.  The higher the stack, the greater the points – just make sure the points belong to you!

Stack high, build routes.  Passtally.

Dead Man’s Cabal


 

 

 

 

 

Terror Below is a game of government experiments gone wild in the Nevada desert.

The faster you move, the more vibrations you make, attracting the attention of the vicious W.O.R.M.s underground. Navigate the difficult terrain to collect valuable W.O.R.M. Eggs and deliver them to Locations around town to claim bounties. If you’re feeling lucky, collect items and weapons to go hunt ‘em.

Dizzle


 

 

 

 

 

In Dizzle, players want to fill their scorecards with dice collected each round. Players take turns selecting dice from the center of the table, and the next die they collect must match the others. At the end of a round, mark all boxes on your scorecard filled with dice.

This might sound simple, but of course others will compete for the dice you need…

Oink Games: Mr. Face & Tricks and the Phantom

Can you express emotions with “Mr. Face”, so that everyone will understand?

A mysterious case involving a MacGuffin…the investigators are ready to report their prime suspects and are poised to arrest the criminal.
However, behind the scenes the Phantom is pulling away. No one that has seen the Phantom has returned to tell the tale. Where could the disguised Phantom be lurking? You must be vigilant!
While being wary of the Phantom, speculate about and discover just who the criminal really is. This quick, mystery card game is packed full of reasoning and fun. Let the battle of wits begin!
