The Game of Grim Incidents and Unhappily-Ever-Afters
Let’s face it: Fairy tales are awful. Wolves and old women eat children, giants fall from the sky, and even young girls break-and-enter to steal porridge from unsuspecting families.
In Fairytale Gloom, custom collections of fairy tale characters like Jack, Gretel, Puss in Boots, and Little Red Riding Hood do their best to stay happy, but circumstances conspire to rain woe on their sad, benighted heads.
These heroes become beasts, give up on Grandma, and cry wolf once too often. Even though they look into magic mirrors and kill golden geese, most end their days living in giant shoes… or worse.
Eventually, enough Unhappy Endings come to pass that the game ends. And then? The most miserable collection of characters wins.
Fairytale Gloom is a stand-alone game that’s also compatible with all existing Gloom core games and expansions.
MONOPOLY: DOCTOR WHO VILLAINS
Pass Go… Collect the Most Infamous Doctor Who Villains in Time and Space.
Join the Doctor and his companions on some of their greatest adventures! Travel through all of time and space with The Doctor’s most memorable exploits against many of his greatest adversaries including The Silence, Cybermen, The Master and even the dreadful Daleks.
TRADERS OF OSAKA
In charge of valuable cargo, you must deliver it from Osaka to Edo. But fierce competition
and the Black Tide may sink your hopes for fortune! Set sail for Japan in this exciting game
for traders full of opportunities… and opportunists!
Five deluxe sushi rolls are on the menu, but you will need to pick your rolls strategically if you want to eat your way to victory. Each turn, you will pick one sushi to eat, one to keep, and then pass the rest to the player next to you. Earn points by eating more of one type of sushi than your opponents, or earn dessert (more points!) for the most variety on your plate. Sushi Draft is quick to learn and fun for the whole family, and is the perfect introduction to the classic genre of pick-and-pass/card-drafting games!
EMINENT DOMAIN: MICROCOSM
The galaxy just got a whole lot smaller…
Two mighty empires are about to collide. Play your cards right and become the ultimate ruler of this microcosm!
Eminent Domain: Microcosm is a quick-playing two-player card game which brings you all the thrill of building a space empire in just 15-20 minutes. Each turn you take a card into your hand from the supply, then you either play a card and carry out its instructions, or pick up your discard pile to refill your hand. Each card also has a scoring condition on it, and to win you’ll want to maximize those conditions.
