VIDEO VORTEX

Video Vortex is a competitive deck-building game for 2-4 players set in a radioactive future Earth inhabited by video-obsessed mutants. Each genre-worshiping character must strategically employ their individual mutant powers while battling opponents and navigating game effects in an attempt to seize control of the wasteland.

On their respective turns, players will spend energy to play special cards, power their deck with rentals from the local video store, and eject chosen cards from play to weaken foes. Runtime, the measure of mutant health, is limited and unique to each character. By advancing an opponent’s runtime beyond their limit through Lo-Fi and Hi-Fi attacks, mutants collect “Be Kind” tokens as trophies representative of their conquest. Once three distinctive trophies have been collected, victory is declared by the reigning champion.

 

 


TRIAL BY TROLLEY

In Trial by Trolley, one player acts as the Trolley Operator and must choose where to send a murderous, out of control, trolley. Every other player at the table plays cards and argues in order to convince the operator to spare their lives and condemn everyone on the other track to a gruesome death-by-trolley.

Each round, one player will act as the trolley conductor. This person will be the judge, and will choose which track the trolley will murder.

Each other player is divided evenly among teams, and each player(s) will have a role for the round.

To begin, one player will draw 3 angelic tracks, choose one to play to the table, and then randomly reveal a 2nd angelic track from the deck to add to the track. Another player will draw 3 demonic tracks, and choose to add one to the opposing teams track, attempting to sabotage them, and spare their own tracks. Finally, player(s) will draw track modifiers to place on any track card on the table. They can play on their own tracks, to sway the judge, or they may play on their opponents, to further sway the judge into murdering their opponent’s track.

The judge will ponder this conundrum, and eventually decide to murder one track. The track that was spared is the winner for the round!

Play continues for a number of rounds pre-determined by the number of players at the table.

 

 


SANCTUM

Sanctum is a competitive strategy game inspired by hack-and-slash RPG video games. Each player controls one of four unique characters as they journey into the heart of the fallen city of Sanctum, building up their skills and arsenals along the way to prepare for the final fight against the Demon Lord.

Multiple players may survive the fight, but only one may claim the glory of purifying Sanctum.

Gameplay is brisk, with the possibility for overlapping turns. The four characters all have unique skill sets, and you’ll level up fast, giving you frequent opportunities to choose new skills. Every decision counts.

Though the game is competitive, the goal is to destroy the Demon Lord, not each other. So player interaction is a race rather than a fight: Who’s furthest along the board? Who will get to choose first when an equipment draft gets triggered? Who will gain the benefit of reaching the Demon Lord first? Who will get to that group of blue demons everyone wants? Who will unlock that achievement and claim the bonus?

 

 


WAKANDA FOREVER

When will you take the throne?

A slew of villains threaten Wakanda! As the five tribes of Wakanda, battle together to keep the country safe. Leading the fight is the King of Wakanda and ultimate warrior, the Black Panther, who alone earns more points than the other four tribes — but you want the throne for yourself, so time your moves carefully, challenge for the throne when the moment is right, and take the mantle of Black Panther! Win the game with the most points and cement your legacy as the Black Panther.

In Wakanda Forever, each tribe has a bonus power to begin the game, and additional powers are earned by whoever holds the Black Panther title when a villain is defeated. Choose to use your valuable Vibranium to upgrade your tech with the chance to score more points, or save it to enter a one-on-one ceremonial battle for the throne.

 

 


ZODIAC CLASH

Take your zodiac sign to the stars in the light strategy game Zodiac Clash. To win, align four of your night stars from the outer ring to the center. This isn’t as easy as it seems, though, as your opponent will mis-align them by spinning the rings of the solar system in an attempt to align their own stars!

Each zodiac has a unique personality and game power, allowing the player to approach the game in a rule-breaking way every single turn. Master your zodiac’s strategy to crush your opponents! Are you a controller of stars like Virgo? Can you manage destructive abilities with Aries? Do you flit between sides with the split personality of a Gemini?
