What secrets are they trying to protect?

Centuries have passed since the first humans arrived on Caravania. Legends have been shared from one generation to the next explaining Caravania's most exotic and rare mysteries – the soul crystals. Legend has it that the souls of the planet's original inhabitants were so pure that after death they were preserved as mesmerizing and powerful crystals. Simply holding a soul crystal, one could feel the essence of life radiating from deep inside. It wasn't long after the discovery of the soul crystals' power that humans used them to build and activate towering golems. After many forgotten centuries, those pure souls are able to breath life once again. In Century: Golem edition, players serve as traders attempting to collect crystals to create the most ornate and powerful of golems.
Dark Souls: The Card Game is a cooperative deck evolution card game for 1-4 players. Players must explore the Encounters around them, defeating a myriad of enemies to gain Souls and Treasure.
They must use these to evolve and adapt their deck to better fight their enemies. When the players are ready, they must challenge the powerful bosses that lie within.
The players must walk a narrow path, however, since their decks allow them to attack their enemies, but also represent their health. Decks are only refreshed when the players rest at the bonfire, so players must defeat their enemies while husbanding their strength for the greater challenges ahead.
Thinking quickly and adapting to the enemy’s attacks is key for survival. A misstep can be fatal, but the rewards of success are great. Adapt your deck, evolve your strategy, and prepare to die.
This is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.
Exploding Kittens is a highly strategic kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. Players take turns drawing cards until someone draws an exploding kitten and loses the game. The deck is made up of cards that let you avoid exploding by peeking at cards before you draw, forcing your opponent to draw multiple cards, or shuffling the deck.
The game gets more and more intense with each card you draw because fewer cards left in the deck means a greater chance of drawing the kitten and exploding in a fiery ball of feline hyperbole.
Imploding Kittens is the first Expansion of Exploding Kittens, the award-winning card game that made Kickstarter history as the most-backed project, ever. This Expansion deck includes 20 new cards featuring 6 new types of actions and an Imploding Kitten which increases the game from 5 to 6 players.
Every morning Odin sends his ravens, Huginn and Muninn, across the entire world to bring back news of what life is like on Earth. Naturally, after thousands of years, they've gotten a little competitive. Race through the landscape in opposite directions to be the first to return to Odin. Focus on speed, or enlist the help of the trickster god Loki to create shortcuts and hinder your opponent. Can you be certain Loki's changes won't help your opponent instead? There's only one way to find out!
The revised edition of Thorsten Gimmler's award-winning Odin's Ravens has been completely redesigned, with new rules and a beautiful new art style inspired by Norse mythology.
Star Scrappers: Cave-in is a game for 2 up to 4 players who take roles of Galactic entrepreneurs - some of rival mining bosses who compete in this difficult, sometimes even merciless, industry. Your job is to excavate the Hexis crystals.
The goal of the game is to get as many victory points as possible before the mine collapses!
To overcome your competition you will have to recruit mercenary labourers, use their skills, and collect precious artefacts. However, you’ll have to keep looking over your shoulder! Your competition is only waiting for a chance to buy your trusted men off and steal the bounty from under your nose!
Every turn you can perform two out of four possible actions:
sending mercenaries to collect crystals
sending mercenaries to find artefacts
using special action of a chosen mercenary
Mechanics of Cave-in can be described as "discard building game". With every action players put mercenaries into their discard. Now, the order of the discard also matters, because your top discarded card gives you a special action at the beginning of your next turn. But beware! If your discard grows too interesting, another player may forfeit their entire turn just to steal the discard from you!
The player that collects most Victory Points wins.
The Fox in the Forest is a trick-taking game for two players. Aside from the normal ranked- and suited-cards used to win tricks, fairy characters such as the Fox and the Witch have special abilities that let you change the trump suit, lead even after you lose a trick, and more.
You score points by winning more tricks than your opponent, but don't get greedy! Win too many tricks, and you will fall like the villain in so many fairy tales...
In Unfair, you’ll get to design your own theme park. When you’re not battling the city as they try to shut you down, or the other players looking to steal your hard earned customers, you can actually customize your rides to make the park of your dreams! You can add in some theatres and restaurants, and definitely don’t forget the comfortable seating and air conditioning. You may even get the chance to hire a licensed character as a mascot, or do some viral marketing to get people to come through the gates. At the end of the day, it’s all about tickets sales. So look out for the competition and don’t be afraid to cause a little trouble for them. Life is Unfair, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be too!
