FORBIDDEN SKY

Soar to dizzying heights in the electrifying cooperative adventure. Work as a team to explore a mysterious platform that floats at the center of a savage storm. Connect a circuit of cables to launch a secret rocket — all before you are struck by lightning or blown off to the depths below. It’s a high-wire act that will test your team’s capacity for courage and cooperation. One false step and you all could be grounded…permanently!

This latest installment in the Forbidden… game series takes you to new heights with several novel challenges, including collectively planning a terrain using only limited information and constructing a real electrical circuit.

 

 

CODENAMES HARRY POTTER

Codenames: Harry Potter features the gameplay from Codenames Duet, with players working together to reveal all the right cards before they run out of time or summon Lord Voldemort or another dark wizard.

The cards that players need to guess feature a word or phrase on one side and an image on the other.

 

 

BATMAN: GOTHAM UNDER SIEGE

Gotham City’s most infamous villains have put the city into peril once again. Now, Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Commissioner Gordon and the Gotham City Police Department along with the unlikely aid of Catwoman, are all that stands between restoring peace and the total destruction of Gotham City!

Designed by Richard Launius and Michael Guigliano, BATMAN – The Animated Series: Gotham City Under Siege is a cooperative game for 1 to 5 players, Each player takes on the role of a powerful Gotham City super hero and must defend the city over the course of four acts, with each act inspired by episodes from the first season of the show. Players will need to work together to find the right balance between completing challenging story cards, or taking down the villains and masterminds running rampant in the streets!

 

 

ORBIS

Orbis is a tactical game of world development and strategic resource management, in which players take on the roles of gods creating their best universes. Utilizing lands lost in the aether, players accumulate worshippers to spend on even more fruitful lands — some of which grant game-changing bonuses. The key to victory lies in having the most creation points (CPs) at the end of the game!

On your turn, you must take a tile from either the nine region tiles in the center of the table or the available God tiles. (A player may take only one God tile throughout the game.) Every time you take a region tile, worshippers of the same color as the tile taken are placed on adjacent tiles, making the tiles left behind more enticing for the next player. Restrictions apply to region tile placement, making each decision tougher than the last!

After fifteen rounds, the game ends when all players have created their universe, at which point CPs are calculated, bonus tiles awarded, and a winner is crowned. Beautifully simple yet rich in strategy, Orbis is a different game each and every time you play it.

Become the best god and craft your most prosperous universe!

 

 

GOD HATES CHARADES

God Hates Charades is a fast-paced acting and guessing party game that will have you and your friends acting like “God auditioning for the role of a dead body on Law And Order”, “Batman having too much fun at a glory hole”, or maybe “Jeff Goldblum complaining that MTV doesn’t play music videos.”

Whatever the scene, you’ll be laughing so hard your face will melt off like those Nazi jerks in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

 

 

FANTASTIC BEASTS PERILOUS PURSUIT

Several of Newt Scamander’s magical beasts have escaped and are running loose in New York City.

In Fantastic Beasts: Perilous Pursuit, players take on the role of Newt, Tina, Jacob and Queenie on an exciting adventure as they try to return all the beasts to Newt’s suitcase before they draw the attention of the non-magical community. To do this, they need to collect sets of dice to take actions that allow them to shield each other, draw cards, and most importantly, get the beasts back into his suitcase before havoc ensues.
