Dead of Winter puts 2-5 players together in a small, weakened colony of survivors in a world where most of humanity are either dead or diseased, flesh-craving monsters. Each player leads a faction of survivors with dozens of different characters in the game.
It is a story-centric game about surviving through a harsh winter in an apocalyptic world. The survivors are all dealing with their own psychological imperatives but must still find a way to work together to fight off outside threats, resolve crises, find food and supplies, and keep the colony's morale up. Dead of Winter has players making frequent, difficult, heavily- thematic, wildly-varying decisions, that often have them deciding between what is best for the colony and what is best for themselves.

We shall see that at which dogs howl in the dark, and that at which cats prick up their ears after midnight.~H.P. Lovecraft, "From Beyond"
It is 1926, and the museum's extensive collection of exotic curios and occult artifacts poses a threat to the barriers between our world and the elder evils lurking between dimensions. Gates to the beyond begin to leak open, and terrifying creatures of increasing strength steal through them. Animals, the mad, and those of more susceptible minds are driven to desperation by the supernatural forces the portals unleash. Only a handful of investigators race against time to locate the eldritch symbols necessary to seal the portals forever. Only they can stop the Ancient One beyond from finding its way to Earth and reducing humanity to cinders.
Elder Sign is a fast-paced, cooperative dice game of supernatural intrigue for one to eight players by Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson, the designers of Arkham Horror. Players take the roles of investigators racing against time to stave off the imminent return of the Ancient Ones. Armed with cards for tools, allies, and occult knowledge, investigators must put their sanity and stamina to the test as they adventure to locate Elder Signs, the eldritch symbols used to seal away the Ancient Ones and win the game.
To locate Elder Signs, investigators must successfully endure Adventures within the museum and its environs. A clever and thematic dice mechanic pits their exploration against monsters and the sheer difficulty of staying sane and healthy, all within the standard game duration of one to two hours.
Elder Sign recreates the Lovecraftian thrills of eerie suspense and mind-numbing horrors in a game players can finish in one to two hours. Expert design in rules, card text, and innovative dice mechanics blend to form a game that's quick to learn, quick to play, strategic enough to reward frequent replay, and eccentric enough to immerse players in the museum's supernatural intrigue.
Lavish artwork, sanity-draining Adventures, and gates to other worlds’«avid readers of H.P. Lovecraft should find themselves at home in their hunt for Elder Signs as the end draws nigh.
"Wu-Feng, the Lord of the Nine Hells has found where the funeral urn containing his ashes is kept. His hordes are already marching upon the small village of the Middle Kingdom hiding them". Players are taoist priests, who will have to defend the village from the army of shadows preparing to invade it. Each of them has different special powers which will help them in this mission.
The village is represented by nine tiles, each of which illustrates a different area. Around that are placed the tiles for each player, where the ghosts will appear on their starting locations.
The players, as a group, will have to exorcise the specters which will appear as the game goes on, often faster than expected... As at the beginning of his turn, a player brings a ghost into play and places it on a free spot. And more than one can come in at the same time. There are many types of specters which will need to be sent back to hell more or less quickly, as some can haunt the village and "destroy" tiles. If there's too many of them at a given time, the players risk losing some of their life points (Ki points).
On his turn, a priest can move on a tile in order to exorcise adjacent ghosts or to benefit from the power of the villager living on the tile.
To exorcise, he must roll three dice (the Tao dice) and end up with enough face up colors of the ghosts' color. Thankfully, one of the dice's face is a wild color which can be used as any color. To exorcise a black ghost of power 2, you need to roll three black or white (the bonus color). The players also benefit from Tao tokens which can pad out the dice roll. They gain these by entering certain village tiles, by exorcising certain ghosts or thanks to their special powers. When they are on the same tile, a priest can give Tao tokens to another priest in order to help with his exorcism.
Each tile of the village allows the players to benefit from a different bonus. The cemetary allows, for example, to bring a dead priest back to life, while the herbalist allows to recover spent Tao tokens, etc. It will also be possible to get traps or move ghosts.
The priests have three or four Ki points (depending on the difficulty level of the game). They also get a Yin-Yang token they can spend in order to make two actions in a single turn. Exorcising certain powerful ghosts allows to recover a spent Yin-Yang or Tao tokens. The special powers available to the players allow to recover Tao tokens, move more than one square or move another player, to benefit from an extra Tao die, etc. They strengthen the required collaboration by giving each priest a specialty.
To win, the players must defeat the incarnation of Wu-Feng, a boss who arrives at the end of the game, once the players have been worn out by the hordes of ghosts breaking in since the beginning of the game. And if you decide to play on a harder difficulty mode, there will be many incarnations, each more dangerous than the last.
The ways to lose are, of course, even more numerous. The players lose if three of the village's tiles are destroyed, if the draw pile is emptied while the incarnation of Wu-Feng is still in play, or, simply, that all the priests are dead.
After the Cylon attack on the Colonies, the battered remnants of the human race are on the run, constantly searching for the next signpost on the road to Earth. They face the threat of Cylon attack from without, and treachery and crisis from within. Humanity must work together if they are to have any hope of survival - but how can they, when any of them may, in fact, be a Cylon agent?
Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game is an exciting game of mistrust, intrigue, and the struggle for survival. Based on the epic and widely-acclaimed new Sci Fi Channel series, Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game puts players in the role of one of ten of their favorite characters from the show. Each playable character has their own abilities and weaknesses, and must all work together in order for humanity to have any hope of survival. However, one or more players in every game secretly side with the Cylons. Players must attempt to expose the traitor while fuel shortages, food contaminations, and political unrest threatens to tear the fleet apart.
The game includes 10 character cards, 32 highly-detailed plastic ships, high-quality card board tokens, hundreds of cards and a game board with resource counters. Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game is a semi-cooperative game for 3-6 players ages 10 and up that can be played in 2-3 hours.
This second expansion for Ghost Stories offers one player the chance to take on the role of Wu-Feng in opposition to the courageous Taoists who are defending the cursed village. In addition to his Ghosts, Wu-Feng will also be able to call upon the fearsome Demons to search the Catacombs and also throw Curses on the Taoists. To face the new threat, the Taoists have the benefit of new weapons, the Bloody Mantras and the Blood Brother ability. Their victory condition remains unchanged: all of Wu-Feng's incarnations must be exorcised!
The game box contains 1 double-sided Catacomb board, 1 double-sided Wu-Feng board, 1 Shadow of Wu-Feng figurine, 3 Minor Demon figurines, 21 Bloody Mantra cards, 10 Ghost cards, 5 Incarnation of Wu-Feng cards, 4 Summon cards, 36 Catacomb tokens, 32 Curse tokens, 9 Ladder figurines, 4 Blood Brother markers, 3 Skeleton tokens, 1 Village tile (Calligrapher), 1 active Taoist marker and the rules.
Expand your Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game experience with the Exodus expansion!
Exodus introduces three new options to include in your Battlestar Galactica games. Give your viper pilots a greater challenge by incorporating the Cylon Fleet option. Using the new Cylon Fleet game board, the CAG Title Card, and the Viper Mark VII models, this option will keep the pressure on the white-knuckle space combat of Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game.
Add an element of danger when looking at other players Loyalty Cards with the Conflicted Loyalties
option. When facing the possibility of execution, some players might not be so eager to learn where your loyalties truly lie.
Finally, encounter the conflicting personalities aboard the Galactica with the Ionian Nebula option. Allies roam about the game board, handing out benefits or detriments to players, depending on the type of Trauma Token assigned to them. Unless you can get rid of your own emotional baggage before the final jump, you might find yourself facing the airlock...or, in the case of Cylon players, the boxing of your entire line.
The Exodus is nigh. Prepare yourselves.
Space Cadets: Dice Duel Die Fighter brings two new experiences to the Dice Duel universe to give veterans a whole new way to play:
Fighters are flown by a single person and are fast and maneuverable, but lack shields and can be easily destroyed. In "Carrier Strike", suitable for 6-10 players, each team gets one original ship (now called a Capital Ship) and one fighter. "Fighter Assault" has two fighters trying to take out a single heavily armed capital ship and is designed for 4-6 players. Finally, "Fighter Duel" brings the Dice Duel experience to two players, as two fighters go head-to-head for a quick and intense battle.
Experimental Equipment cards upgrade the capital ships with a variety of unique and powerful abilities. Through a draft mechanism, each side selects two upgrades and needs to tailor their strategy to take advantage of their strengths. The 27 cards include new weapons, enhancements to existing systems, new movement options, and more.
