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.

Shadows over Camelot is a cooperative/semi-cooperative hand-management and deduction-based board game for 3–7 players. Each player represents a knight of the Round Table and they must collaborate to overcome a number of quests, ranging from defeating the Black Knight to the search for the Holy Grail. Completed quests place white swords on the Round Table; failed quests add black swords and/or siege engines around Camelot. The knights are trying to build a majority of white swords on the Table before Camelot falls. Moreover, one of the knights may be a traitor, pretending to be a loyal member of the party but secretly hindering his fellow knights in subtle ways, biding his time, waiting to strike at the worst possible moment...

This cooperative firefighting game comes with two sets of rules:
Family Rules: Setup involves putting fire, victim, and door tokens in set positions on the board. The game is won by rescuing at least seven people from the burning building. If you run out of damage tokens for the building (meaning that the building collapses), or four people perish in the fire, you lose the game. A turn consists of a player using four Action Points, Advancing the Fire, and replenishing Points of Interest.
Advanced Rules: The board is set up randomly with the addition of hot spots and hazardous materials. Players each get an individual firefighter with a special and unique skill. Emergency vehicles also are part of the Advanced game.
Shadow Hunters is a survival board game set in a devil-filled forest in which three groups of characters the Shadows, creatures of the night; the Hunters, humans who try to destroy supernatural creatures; and the Neutrals, civilians caught in the middle of this ancient battle struggle against each other to survive.
The key to victory is to identify your allies and enemies early because once your identity is revealed, your enemies will attack without impunity using their special abilities like Demolish, Teleport, and Suck Blood or equipment cards such as the Rusty Broad Ax or Fortune Brooch. This ancient battle comes to a head and only one group will stand victorious or a civilian, in the right circumstances, might claim victory.
"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.
In Arcadia Quest players lead guilds of intrepid heroes on an epic campaign to dethrone the vampire lord and reclaim the mighty Arcadia for their own.

Castle Panic is a unique, cooperative strategy game for 1 to 6 players ages 10 and up.
Players must work together to defend their castle, in the center of the board, from monsters that attack out of the forest, at the edges of the board. Players trade cards, hit and slay monsters, and plan strategies together to keep their castle towers intact. The players either win or lose together, but only the player with the most victory points is declared the Master Slayer.
Players must balance the survival of the group with their own desire to win.

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.
Matsuri is an expansion that will bring new cards and tokens to the game. With this expansion, the players will live the Japanese feasts and festivals. These cards will modify the way each section of the road will be played. This won't transform the game but it will add even more depth and strategy to it in the same way that Crossroads did. A smart and fresh idea from Antoine to bring even more gameplay exclusive content to our fellow Samurais (and up) supporters!
