In Ark Nova, you will plan and design a modern, scientifically managed zoo. With the ultimate goal of owning the most successful zoological establishment, you will build enclosures, accommodate animals, and support conservation projects all over the world. Specialists and unique buildings will help you in achieving this goal.

Brass: Birmingham on strateginen talouspeli, joka on jatkoa Martin Wallacen vuoden 2007 mestariteokselle, Brassille. Birmingham kertoo kyseisessä kaupungissa kilpailevista liikemiehistä ja -naisista teollisen vallankumouksen aikana, vuosina 1770 - 1870.
Kuten edeltäjässään, myös Birminghamissa pelaajat kehittävät teknologiaa, rakentavat teollisuutta ja verkostoituvat yrittäessään hyödyntää markkinoiden vaihteluita.
Peli pelataan kahdessa jaksossa. Ensin on kanaalien aika (1770-1830), jota seuraa rautateiden aika. Pelin voittaa keräämällä muita enemmän voittopisteitä ja pistelaskut tehdät kummankin jakson lopussa kanaalien ja rautateiden osalta, sekä ns. vakiintuneiden teollisuuslaattojen pohjalta. Teollisuudenaloina molemmissa Brasseissa ovat rauta, hiili ja puuvilla.
Birminghamin erikoisuus on olutteollisuus. Oluella voi myös “rasvata teollisuuden rattaita”: myydäkseen tuotteita eteenpäin, pitää kuluttaa olutvarantojaan. Uusia teollisuudenaloja ovat myös tehdastuotteet ja keramiikka.
Brass: Birminghamin lisäksi alkuperäinen Brass on myös nyt uudelleenjulkaistu nimellä Brass: Lancashire. Molemmat pelit näyttävät suorastaan upeilta verrattuna vuoden 2007 klassikkopainokseen. Molemmat ovat myös saaneet huikean hyviä arvosteluja. Peliin kannattaa tutustua jos vähän raskaammat talouspelit yhtään kiinnostavat.
Hurmaavassa Everdellin laaksossa, korkeiden puiden varjossa ja solisevien purojen varrella elää metsän pikkuväen alati laajentuva valtakunta. Everfrostista Bellsongiin on kulunut monta vuotta ja nyt on aika laajentaa uusille alueilla ja perustaa kaupunkeja. Sinä johdat yhtä eläinporukkaa tuossa tehtävässä. Rakennat, tapaat jänniä tyyppejä ja isännöit tapahtumia - vuodesta tulee kiireinen. Paistaako aurinko kirkkaimmin sinun kaupunkiisi ennen kuin talvinen kuu nousee taivaalle?
Everdell on dynaaminen yhdistelmä taulukonrakentelua (tableau building) ja työläistenasettelua.
Everdell on poikkeuksellisen näyttävän näköinen pöydällä korkealle kohoavan puun ansiosta.
The Swift-Start Promo Pack includes first-round walkthrough guides and specific new bird cards to use with them. For those who already own Wingspan, the swift-start guides are still helpful for teaching new players, and the 10 new cards can be shuffled into the bird deck.
Wingspan is a competitive, medium-weight, card-driven, engine-building board game from Stonemaier Games.
You are bird enthusiasts—researchers, bird watchers, ornithologists, and collectors—seeking to discover and attract the best birds to your network of wildlife preserves. Each bird extends a chain of powerful combinations in one of your habitats (actions). These habitats focus on several key aspects of growth:
Gain food tokens via custom dice in a birdfeeder dice tower
Lay eggs using egg miniatures in a variety of colors
Draw from hundreds of unique bird cards and play them
The winner is the player with the most points after 4 rounds.
170 unique bird cards (57x87mm)
26 bonus cards (57x87mm)
16 Automa cards (57x87mm)
103 food tokens
75 egg miniatures
5 custom wooden dice
5 player mats
1 birdfeeder dice tower
2-piece Game Trayz custom tray
1 goal mat
8 goal tiles
1 first-player token
40 action cubes (8 per player)
4 clear plastic resource containers
1 scorepad (50 sheets; 1 sheet used for all players each game)
3 rulebooks (core, Automa, and Appendix)
In Scythe, each player represents a fallen leader attempting to restore their honor and lead their faction to power in Eastern Europa. Players conquer territory, enlist new recruits, reap resources, gain villagers, build structures, and activate monstrous mechs.
Each player begins the game with different resources (strength, victory points, movement capabilities, and popularity), their choice of several faction-specific abilities, and a hidden goal. Starting positions are specially calibrated to contribute to each faction’s uniqueness and the asymmetrical nature of the game.
In the trick-taking card game The Crew: Mission Deep Sea, you and the other players work together to search for the lost continent of Mu. This new adventure takes your crew deep down into the abyss on a search for the fabled sunken land. How far you get depends entirely on how well you work together as a team. Card by card, trick by trick, your search party will discover the challenges that lie ahead and forge a path to Mu.
This new version of The Crew has the same innovative co-operative trick-taking mechanism as the highly lauded original game — but
with some exciting new surprises! While communication between your crew members is severely limited by your submerged state, it is also critical to your success; finding the hidden land in the murky depths depends not only on winning tricks, but also on carefully negotiating the order in which they are won. If things don't go as planned, you might just be able to salvage the operation, but it will take near flawless execution and perhaps a little luck to finally reach Mu.
Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is a standalone game that takes place before the events of Gloomhaven. The game includes four new characters — Valrath Red Guard (tank, crowd control), Inox Hatchet (ranged damage), Human Voidwarden (support, mind-control), and Quatryl Demolitionist (melee damage, obstacle manipulation) — that can also be used in the original Gloomhaven game.
The game also includes 16 monster types (including seven new standard monsters and three new bosses) and a new campaign with 25 scenarios that invites the heroes to investigate a case of mysterious disappearances within the city. Is it the work of Vermlings, or is something far more sinister going on?
Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is aimed at a more casual audience to get people into the gameplay more quickly. All of the hard-to-organize cardboard map tiles have been removed, and instead players will play on the scenario book itself, which features new artwork unique to each scenario. The last barrier to entry — i.e., learning the game — has also been lowered through a simplified rule set and a five-scenario tutorial that will ease new players into the experience.
Dune: Imperium is a game that finds inspiration in elements and characters from the Dune legacy, both the new film from Legendary Pictures and the seminal literary series from Frank Herbert, Brian Herbert, and Kevin J. Anderson.
As a leader of one of the Great Houses of the Landsraad, raise your banner and marshal your forces and spies. War is coming, and at the center of the conflict is Arrakis – Dune, the desert planet.
Dune: Imperium uses deck-building to add a hidden-information angle to traditional worker placement.
You start with a unique leader card, as well as deck identical to those of your opponents. As you acquire cards and build your deck, your choices will define your strengths and weaknesses. Cards allow you to send your Agents to certain spaces on the game board, so how your deck evolves affects your strategy. You might become more powerful militarily, able to deploy more troops than your opponents. Or you might acquire cards that give you an edge with the four political factions represented in the game: the Emperor, the Spacing Guild, the Bene Gesserit, and the Fremen.
Unlike many deck-building games, you don’t play your entire hand in one turn. Instead, you draw a hand of cards at the start of every round and alternate with other players, taking one Agent turn at a time (playing one card to send one of your Agents to the game board). When it’s your turn and you have no more Agents to place, you’ll take a Reveal turn, revealing the rest of your cards, which will provide Persuasion and Swords. Persuasion is used to acquire more cards, and Swords help your troops fight for the current round’s rewards as shown on the revealed Conflict card.
Defeat your rivals in combat, shrewdly navigate the political factions, and acquire precious The Spice Must Flow cards to lead your House to victory!
Root is a game of adventure and war in which 2 to 4 players battle for control of a vast wilderness.
The nefarious Marquise de Cat has seized the great woodland, intent on harvesting its riches. Under her rule, the many creatures of the forest have banded together. This Alliance will seek to strengthen its resources and subvert the rule of Cats. In this effort, the Alliance may enlist the help of the wandering Vagabonds who are able to move through the more dangerous woodland paths. Though some may sympathize with the Alliance’s hopes and dreams, these wanderers are old enough to remember the great birds of prey who once controlled the woods.
Meanwhile, at the edge of the region, the proud, squabbling Eyrie have found a new commander who they hope will lead their faction to resume their ancient birthright. The stage is set for a contest that will decide the fate of the great woodland. It is up to the players to decide which group will ultimately take root.
Root represents the next step in our development of asymmetric design. Like Vast: The Crystal Caverns, each player in Root has unique capabilities and a different victory condition. Now, with the aid of gorgeous, multi-use cards, a truly asymmetric design has never been more accessible.
The Cats play a game of engine building and logistics while attempting to police the vast wilderness. By collecting Wood they are able to produce workshops, lumber mills, and barracks. They win by building new buildings and crafts.
The Eyrie musters their hawks to take back the Woods. They must capture as much territory as possible and build roosts before they collapse back into squabbling.
The Alliance hides in the shadows, recruiting forces and hatching conspiracies. They begin slowly and build towards a dramatic late-game presence--but only if they can manage to keep the other players in check.
Chronicles of Crime is cooperative game of crime investigation.
With the same physical components (board, locations, characters and items), players will be able to play plenty of different scenarii and solve as many different crime stories.
They will start the app, choose the scenario they want to play, and follow the story. The goal being to catch the killer of the case they have been given in the shortest short time possible.
Using the Scan&Play technology, each component (locations, characters, items, etc.) has a unique QR code, which, depending on the scenario selected, will activate and trigger different clues and stories. That means players will be able to get new stories way after the game is release simply by downloading the app's updates, without any shipping of new physical components involved.
Each session last around 1h to 1h30 minutes and many scenarios are connected to each others in order to tell a much bigger story.
Gloomhaven on BoardGameGeekin maailmanlistan ykköspeli, pelaajien parhaista parhaimmaksi arvostama. Gloomhaven on eurotyylinen taktista taistelua sisältävä korttivetoinen fantasiapeli suurella kampanjalla ja pelin aikana aukeavilla lisähahmoilla, figuilla ja -korteilla. Pelattavaa on noin 120 tunniksi.
Pelaajat ottavat eri seikkailijoiden roolit, kullakin omat vahvuutensa ja heikkoutensa. Peli on yhteistyötä, kun seikkailiryhmä etenee luolastoissa ja unohdetuissa raunioissa. Pelin aikana hahmot kehittyvät taidoissaan ja varusteissaan ja he löytävät uusia alueita tutkittavaksi. Usein haaroittuvat tarina antaa pelaajille vaikeita valintoja tehtäviksi.
Peli ja pelimaailma elävät jatkuvasti ja Gloomhaven onkin parhaimmillaan kun sitä pelaa pitkäjänteisesti ja säännöllisesti. Jokaisen skenaarion jälkeen tehdään päätöksiä siitä, miten tarina tulee jatkumaan, vähän kuin Valitse-oma-seikkailusi -kirjoissa. Pelaaminen on yhteistyötä, jossa pelaajat taistelevat automatisoituja hirviöitä vastaan käyttäen pelin innovatiivista ja kehuttua korttisysteemiä.
Joka vuoro pelaaja valitsee kaksi korttia kädestään pelattavaksi. Päälimmäisen kortin numero määrää vuoron aloitteen. Kussakin kortissa on myös ylä- ja alavoima ja kun pelaajan vuoro koittaa, hän voi valita kummasta kortista käyttää ylemmän voiman ja kummasta alemman. Pelin edetessä pelaajat menettävät myös pysyvästi käsikorttejaan, joten niiden valinnoissa on oltava tarkka. Jos luolaston tutkiminen vie liikaa aikaa seikkailijat väsyvät ja joutuvat perääntymään.
Return to the mysterious island of Arnak in Lost Ruins of Arnak: Expedition Leaders!
Give your expedition an edge by choosing one of six unique leaders, each equipped with different abilities, skills, and starting decks that offer different strategies and styles of play for you to explore.
In addition to the leader abilities, which bring a new element of asymmetry to the game, this expansion contains alternative research tracks that offer even more variety and a bigger challenge, along with new item and artifact cards to create new combos and synergies.
Asiat ovat ehdottomasti menossa outoon suuntaan Undimensioned and Unseen -skenaariossa. Tämä on Dunwich Legacy -syklin neljäs Mythos-pakka Arkham Horror: The Card Game -peliin.
Siihen mennessä, kun kahden kadonneen professorin etsintäsi on johtanut sinut Undimensioned and Unseen -skenaarioon, olet jo matkustanut kauaksi Arkhamin tutuista mukavuuksista. Olet nähnyt asioita, joita kukaan ei tule uskomaan. Olet sotkeutunut kultisteihin ja heidän uhrauksiinsa, joihin on upotettu tietoa "Suurista muinaisista" ja epäpyhistä rituaaleista. Löydät itsesi tilanteesta, jossa sinun on yhtäkkiä pakko tuhota kauhistuttavia hirviöitä, jotka ovat lähes immuuneja kaikelle arsenaalissasi...
Undimensioned ja Unseen on mysteeri arvoituksen sisällä. Se voi tuoda sinut askeleen lähemmäksi lopullista tavoitettasi, mutta sinun on ensin jäljitettävä kaikki tiedot tai voimat, jotka voivat auttaa sinua taistelussasi näitä lähes haavoittumattomia hirviöitä vastaan. Se myös vaatii, että suoritat tutkimuksen nopeasti - mahdollisesti hyödyntämällä tämän Mythos Packin mukana tulevia uusia pelaajan kortteja - ehkä metsästetystä voisi niillä tulla metsästäjä!
Kuka olisi voinut koskaan arvata, että kahden kadonneen professorin etsintä johtaisi tähän? Tuuli ulvoo. Rituaalitaikuus värähtelee ilman läpi. Ja maailma repeytyy. Aikasi loppuu. Tuomio lähestyy nopeasti!
Where Doom Awaits on viides myyttipakka Dunwich Legacy -syklissä Arkham Horror: The Card Gameen. Tämä skenaario vie tutkintasi nopeasti kohti sen loppukliimaksia ,samalla kun se huimaa tutkijaasi vääristyneellä versiolla todellisuudesta.
Dunwichin ulkopuolinen metsä muuttuu. Löydät aukioita täynnä verta ja ruumiita, sekä jokia, jotka ovat jäätyneet lämpimästä ilmasta huolimatta. Astut poluille, jotka repeävät paljastaen kuiluja ulottuvuuksien ja muiden maailmojen välille…
Onneksi et ole täysin valmistautumaton haasteisiin, joita nämä ulottuvuuksien repeämät tuovat. 28 pelaajan korttia (kaksi kopiota neljästätoista eri kortista) tarjoavat valikoiman ratkaisuja - jos vain olet ansainnut tarpeeksi kokemuspisteitä lisätäksesi ne pakkaasi.
In Underwater Cities, which takes about 30-45 minutes per player, players represent the most powerful brains in the world, brains nominated due to the overpopulation of Earth to establish the best and most livable underwater areas possible.
The main principle of the game is card placement. Three colored cards are placed along the edge of the main board into 3 x 5 slots, which are also colored. Ideally players can place cards into slots of the same color. Then they can take both actions and advantages: the action depicted in the slot on the main board and also the advantage of the card. Actions and advantages can allow players to intake raw materials; to build and upgrade city domes, tunnels and production buildings such as farms, desalination devices and laboratories in their personal underwater area; to move their marker on the initiative track (which is important for player order in the next turn); to activate the player's "A-cards"; and to collect cards, both special ones and basic ones that allow for better decision possibilities during gameplay.
All of the nearly 220 cards — whether special or basic — are divided into four types according to the way and time of use. Underwater areas are planned to be double-sided, giving players many opportunities to achieve VPs and finally win.
Essex County Express on toinen mythos-paketti Dunwich Legacy -syklissä Arkham Horror: The Card Game -peliin. Kuudenkymmenen uuden kortin joukosta löydät kaksikymmentäkahdeksan pelaajakorttia, mukaanlukien neljä kopioita uudesta heikkoudesta.
Löydät paketista myös jännittävän uuden skenaarion, jossa tutkimuksesi johtavat sinut Arkhamin kaupungin ulkopuolelle. Vaikka ottamasi juna voi tarjota nopeimman tien seuraavalle johtolangalle, se ei välttämättä ole turvallisin… Kun juna kolisee, tärisee ja yllättäen pysähtyy, sinun ja kanssatutkijoidesi on rynnättävä matkustajavaunusta veturiin. Jos et saa junaa nopeasti liikkumaan, sinä ja kaikki muut matkustajat saatatte joutua saaliksi epäluonnollisille olennoille, joita näyttävät ryömivän, mönkivän ja liukuvan vaunusta toiseen, kasvaessaan samalla yhä suuremmaksi.
Seikkailusi Essex County Expressissä sisältävät satunnaisia sijainteja, mikä parantaa huomattavasti skenaarion uudelleenpelattavuutta. Se tarkoittaa, että tämä painajaismainen junamatka kannattaa tehdä yhä uudestaan ja uudestaan!
A party game for horrible people."
Play begins with a judge, known as the "Card Czar", choosing a black question or fill-in-the-blank card from the top of the deck and showing it to all players. Each player holds a hand of ten white answer cards at the beginning of each round, and passes a card (sometimes two) to the Card Czar, face-down, representing their answer to the question on the card. The card czar determines which answer card(s) are funniest in the context of the question or fill-in-the-blank card. The player who submitted the chosen card(s) is given the question card to represent an "Awesome Point", and then the player to the left of the new Card Czar becomes the new Czar for the next round. Play continues until the players agree to stop, at which point the player with the most Awesome Points is the winner.
This, so far, sounds like the popular and fairly inoffensive Apples to Apples. While the games are similar, the sense of humor required is very different. The game encourages players to poke fun at practically every awkward or taboo subject including race, religion, gender, poverty, torture, alcoholism, drugs, sex (oh yes), abortion, child abuse, celebrities, and those everyday little annoyances like "Expecting a burp and vomiting on the floor".
In addition, there are a few extra rules. First, some question cards are "Pick 2" or cards, which require each participant to submit two cards in sequence to complete their answer. Second, a gambling component also exists. If a question is played which a player believes they have two possible winning answers for, they may bet an Awesome Point to play a single second answer. If the player who gambled wins, they retain the wagered point, but if they lose, the player who contributed the winning answer takes both points.
Calico is a puzzly tile-laying game of quilts and cats.
In Calico, players compete to sew the coziest quilt as they collect and place patches of different colors and patterns. Each quilt has a particular pattern that must be followed, and players are also trying to create color and pattern combinations that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also able to attract the cuddliest cats!
Turns are simple. Select a single patch tile from your hand and sew it into your quilt, then draw another patch into your hand from the three available. If you are able to create a color group, you may sew a button onto your quilt. If you are able to create a pattern combination that is attractive to any of the cats, it will come over and curl up on your quilt! At the end of the game, you score points for buttons, cats, and how well you were able to complete your unique quilt pattern.
At the end of "The Dunwich Legacy" cycle, and near the end of your path to abject madness, Lost in Time and Space is the climactic sixth Mythos Pack in the first full-length Arkham Horror: The Card Game campaign!
Nothing can prepare you for what you'll discover at the cycle's end. As your world dissolves into pathways of sound and color that extend for an eternity in all directions, the lines between objects grow jagged, shifting. Your skin starts to crawl, feeling as though it's turning inside out. Somehow, you must find your way across this foreboding alien landscape. And, somehow, you know you're not entirely alone…
Lost in Time and Space introduces a new scenario full to bursting with otherworldly chaos, non-Euclidean geometry, and menacing, extra-dimensional entities possessed of incomprehensible powers. You'll find player cards strong enough that you just might have a chance to survive. And for those who play it as the capstone of "The Dunwich Legacy" campaign, the scenario's also littered with effects that call back to the decisions you've made. It is an adventure, a reckoning, and a descent into madness.
Tämä on Concordia Venuksen itsenäinen versio, joka sisältää kaikki pelaamiseen tarvittavat komponentit. Concordia Venuksesta on olemassa myös edullisempi, Concordia-peruspelin jatkoksi hankittava lisäosa.
Venuksessa voivat kahden pelaajan joukkueet kilpailla keskenään. Perus-Concordiaan verrattuna uutta ovat myös Venus-kortit, jotka mahdollistavat uudenlaisia strategioita. Mukana tulevat perus-Concordiasta tuttu Imperium-kartta, sekä Cyprus, Hellas ja Ionium. Vaihtelua siis riittää ja tämä onkin varsin kattava Concordia-paketti, jos peruspeliä ei ole ennestään hyllyssä.
The Miskatonic Museum is the first Mythos Pack in The Dunwich Legacy cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game.
It begins with a book… Somewhere in the Miskatonic Museum, Olaus Wormius’s Latin translation of a book called the Necronomicon lies hidden away, kept locked and secret so that those individuals who shouldn't gain access to it do not. When recent events at the university and the Clover Club lead you to believe that someone may now be searching for this strange and ancient tome—someone who should not be permitted to delve its secrets—you make your way to the Museum. The hour is late, and the front door is locked. But you know you must recover the book before anyone can access its arcane secrets for dark purposes.
The cards and adventure from The Miskatonic Museum grant you access to the Museum and its many exhibitions. Whether you conduct your investigation as a relatively simple book recovery or incorporate it into the campaign from The Dunwich Legacy, you'll find it marked by a frightening urgency. You aren't alone within the museum's darkened chambers; something else stalks the exhibits…
he Dunwich Legacy is a deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game.
Several months ago, three Miskatonic University professors armed themselves with secret knowledge, traveled to Dunwich, and brought an end to the strange and terrifying creature that had been terrorizing the secluded village. Their heroic efforts brought peace to the region—for a while—but also left the men scarred by the horrors they had witnessed. Now, one of those professors, Dr. Armitage, has need of your assistance. His colleagues have gone missing, and he fears the worst…
With five mini cards and 156 full-size cards, The Dunwich Legacy challenges you to find the missing professors and launches you into a campaign that leads to Miskatonic University, the notorious Clover Club, and beyond. Five new investigators arrive to offer their services, armed with fifty-nine new player cards (including a complete playset of each) that allow you to pursue new deck-building strategies and new styles of play. Finally, you'll find all manner of new terrors arrayed against you—from backroom thugs and bad luck to arcane hexes and wholly unnatural abominations.
Blood on the Altar on kolmas mythospaketti Dunwich Legacy -syklissä Arkham Horror: The Card Game -pelille.
Verta alttarilla -skenaariossa tutkimuksenne johtavat Dunwichin kylään. Epäilette, että siellä viime aikoina sattuneet katoamiset voivat liittyä Arkhamin tapahtumiin. Mitä enemmän tutkitte, sitä enemmän saatte vaikutelman, että kaupunkilaiset eivät pidä teistä. Tässä kaupungissa on salaisuuksia, joita sen asukkaat eivät halua jakaa…
Kuusikymmentä korttia sisältävä Blood on the Altar haastaa kaivamaan esiin Dunwichin salaisuudet. Tutkijoiden on matkustettava ympäri kaupunkia etsimässä johtolankoja ja pysähtyen tutkimaan monia H.P. Lovecraftin klassisesta The Dunwich Horror -tarinasta tuttuja paikkoja.
In Viticulture, the players find themselves in the roles of people in rustic, pre-modern Tuscany who have inherited meager vineyards. They have a few plots of land, an old crushpad, a tiny cellar, and three workers. They each have a dream of being the first to call their winery a true success.
The players are in the position of determining how they want to allocate their workers throughout the year. Every season is different on a vineyard, so the workers have different tasks they can take care of in the summer and winter. There's competition over those tasks, and often the first worker to get to the job has an advantage over subsequent workers.
Fortunately for the players, people love to visit wineries, and it just so happens that many of those visitors are willing to help out around the vineyard when they visit as long as you assign a worker to take care of them. Their visits (in the form of cards) are brief but can be very helpful.
Using those workers and visitors, players can expand their vineyards by building structures, planting vines (vine cards), and filling wine orders (wine order cards). Players work towards the goal of running the most successful winery in Tuscany.
Viticulture - Essential Edition comes with components for Viticulture, but adds some of the expansions from Tuscany, including 36 Mama & Papa cards, Field cards (previously known as "Properties"), expanded/revised Visitors, and 24 Automa cards (solo variant), along with a couple of minor rule changes.
The Viticulture Essential Edition contains 154 cards at the 44 x 67 mm size and 88 cards at the 63 x 88 mm size.
From the streets of Paris to the city's subterranean catacombs, your pursuit of the truth behind The King in Yellow leads you farther and farther from Arkham's familiar landmarks. But the streets, the language, and the eerie, dark tunnels aren't the only foreign elements at play. There's something distinctly otherworldly in the Parisian catacombs…
In The Pallid Mask scenario, you and your fellow investigators will enter these tunnels in search of a stranger whom you believe must be connected to the events surrounding the performance of The King in Yellow at the Ward Theatre in Arkham. But with each new strange twist and turn, you'll find yourselves only stepping deeper into mystery. Perhaps you can follow the tunnels all the way to the pulsing heart of the play's mysteries, but there's a chance, too, you'll simply find yourselves lost amid the shifting landscape. What begins as a trek through moist and clammy tunnels of stone may become a journey that leads you under the earth, through The Gate to Hell, and straight to your demise at the Well of Souls or some other forgotten chamber.
Destined to be a fan-favorite, the scenario from The Pallid Mask utilizes the game's locations in a novel way, bringing them into play only as you travel through them, and arranging them in a constantly shifting and unpredictable fashion. Each new step through these labyrinths could be your last.
Beyond the Sun is a space civilization game in which players collectively decide the technological progress of humankind at the dawn of the Spacefaring Era, while competing against each other to be the leading faction in economic development, science, and galactic influence.
The game is played over a variable number of rounds until a number of game-end achievements are collectively claimed by the players. The winner is the faction with the most victory points, which are obtained by researching technologies, improving their economy, controlling and colonizing systems, and completing various achievements and events throughout the game.
On a turn, a player moves their action pawn to an empty action space, then takes that action. They then conduct their production phase, either producing ore, growing their population, or trading one of those resources for another. Finally, they can claim up to one achievement, if possible.
As players take actions, they research new technologies that come in four levels. Each technology is one of four types (scientific, economic, military, commercial), and higher-level technologies must match one of the types of tech that lead into it. Thus, players create their own technology tree in each game, using these actions to increase their military strength, to jump to different habitable exoplanetary systems, to colonize those systems, to boost their resource production, to develop android tech that allows growth without population, and more.
A game of Eclipse places you in control of a vast interstellar civilization, competing for success with its rivals.

• Acquire technological innovations from the planet Ix for a lasting strategic advantage.

In The Quacks of Quedlinburg, players are charlatans — or quack doctors — each making their own secret brew by adding ingredients one at a time. Take care with what you add, though, for a pinch too much of this or that will spoil the whole mixture!
Each player has their own bag of ingredient chips. During each round, they simultaneously draw chips and add them to their pot. The higher the face value of the drawn chip, the further it is placed in the swirling pattern. Push your luck as far as you can, but if you add too many cherry bombs, your pot explodes!
At the end of each round, players gain victory points and coins to spend on new ingredients to add to their bags, depending on the strength of the ingredients in their pots. But players with exploded pots must choose points or coins — not both! The player with the most victory points at the end of nine rounds wins the game.

In many ways 7 Wonders Duel resembles its parent game 7 Wonders as over three ages players acquire cards that provide resources or advance their military or scientific development in order to develop a civilization and complete wonders.
What's different about 7 Wonders Duel is that, as the title suggests, the game is solely for two players, with the players not drafting cards simultaneously from hands of cards, but from a display of face-down and face-up cards arranged at the start of a round. A player can take a card only if it's not covered by any others, so timing comes into play as well as bonus moves that allow you to take a second card immediately. As in the original game, each card that you acquire can be built, discarded for coins, or used to construct a wonder.
Each player starts with four wonder cards, and the construction of a wonder provides its owner with a special ability. Only seven wonders can be built, though, so one player will end up short.
Players can purchase resources at any time from the bank, or they can gain cards during the game that provide them with resources for future building; as you acquire resources, the cost for those particular resources increases for your opponent, representing your dominance in this area.
A player can win 7 Wonders Duel in one of three ways: each time you acquire a military card, you advance the military marker toward your opponent's capital, giving you a bonus at certain positions; if you reach the opponent's capital, you win the game immediately; similarly, if you acquire any six of seven different scientific symbols, you achieve scientific dominance and win immediately; if none of these situations occurs, then the player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
“Vuosisatoja sitten arvokas maustekauppa sai maailman rikkaat valtiot etsimään vaihtoehtoisia reittejä arvokkaille Maustesaarille, joista maailman arvokkaimmat mausteet löytyivät.”
Century-pelisarja tekee pesäeroa historiaan ja jättää vuosisadat ja maa-alueet nimeämättä, historiallisesti liikutaan kuitenkin 1400-luvulla Intiaan suuntautuneessa kaupassa. Century: Eastern Wonders on iloisen värinen ja hyvin sujuva peli, jossa sääntöjä ei ole kaksi sivua. Peli on jatkoa Emerson Matsuuchin aiemmalla, Vuoden strategiapeli -palkinnon 2018 pokanneelle Century: Spice Roadille. Mielestämme tämä jatko-osa on vielä edeltäjäänsäkin parempi. Pelissä purjehditaan omalla laivalla saaristossa vaihtamassa mausteita toisiin tavoitteena koota tilaajien pyytämiä maustelasteja. Sarjan kaksi peliä voi myös yhdistää, jolloin tuloksena vähän strategisempi Century: Sand to Sea.

Your investigations have led you far from that fateful first showing of The King in Yellow at the Ward Theatre in Arkham. When you could no longer find the answers you needed in Arkham, you voyaged across the Atlantic to France and entered the catacombs of the dead beneath Paris. Now, you travel to the island commune of Mont Saint-Michel, as brooding, dark clouds cover the sky. A storm is coming—and it’s unclear if our world will survive.
Black Stars Rise offers the latest chapter in The Path to Carcosa cycle, and the latest tale of your own madness. You have looked upon the face of the Stranger. You have beheld the Pallid Mask and the Tattered Cloak. New player cards arrive in this Mythos Pack, cards with palliative names like “Stick to the Plan,” “Narrow Escape,” or “Ward of Protection.” Their names are a lie, dripping with false comfort that only the truly mad will embrace. The darkling spires of Carcosa are breaching the walls between dimensions and Hastur will rule over all…
In the co-operative trick-taking game The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine, the players set out as astronauts on an uncertain space adventure. What about the rumors about the unknown planet about? The eventful journey through space extends over 50 exciting missions. But this game can only be defeated by meeting common individual tasks of each player. In order to meet the varied challenges, communication is essential in the team. But this is more difficult than expected in space.
With each mission, the game becomes more difficult. After each mission, the game can be paused and continued later. During each mission, it is not the amount of tricks, but the right tricks at the right time that count.
The team wins only if every single player is successful in fulfilling their tasks.
On an uninhabited island in uncharted seas, explorers have found traces of a great civilization. Now you will lead an expedition to explore the island, find lost artifacts, and face fearsome guardians, all in a quest to learn the island's secrets.
Lost Ruins of Arnak combines deck-building and worker placement in a game of exploration, resource management, and discovery. In addition to traditional deck-builder effects, cards can also be used to place workers, and new worker actions become available as players explore the island. Some of these actions require resources instead of workers, so building a solid resource base will be essential. You are limited to only one action per turn, so make your choice carefully... what action will benefit you most now? And what can you afford to do later... assuming someone else doesn't take the action first!?
Decks are small, and randomness in the game is heavily mitigated by the wealth of tactical decisions offered on the game board. With a variety of worker actions, artifacts, and equipment cards, the set-up for each game will be unique, encouraging players to explore new strategies to meet the challenge.
Discover the Lost Ruins of Arnak!
Expansion for base game

In addition, the expansion has Tokens that prevent the invaders from exploring, building, or ravaging or add wild Beasts to the land, a new set of powers (31 Minor and 21 Major) that use the new Tokens and expand the gameplay, 15 new Fear cards, new Blight cards, and new Scenarios.

Dim Carcosa on kuudes ja viimeinen Mythos-paketti "Path to Carcosa" -syklin sarjassa Arkham Horror: The Card Gameen.
Tutkimuksesi salaperäisestä näytelmästä "Keltainen kuningas" on johdattanut sinut ympäri maailmaa ja tuonut hulluuden reunalle. Nyt Carcosaan suuntautuvan polun viimeisessä näytöksessä matkustat maailmankaikkeuden ulkopuolelle maailmaan, joka on kaiken mielikuvituksen ulkopuolella. Edessäsi on vääntynyt, outo kaupunki. Sen kiertyvät kadut ja poikkeava arkkitehtuuri eivät näytä seuraavan mitään järjestystä tai rakennetta. Etäisyydessä synkkä järvi heijastaa kahden auringon säteitä. Tämä on Carcosa - tähtien hulluuden valtakunta, jossa Hastur hallitsee.
Kaikki paljastuu matkalla Dim Carcosaan, mikä tarkoittaa, että tämän skenaarion lokaatioilla ei ole piilotettua puolta. Sen sijaan niiden kääntöpuolella on tarina, joka vie juonikuviot päätökseensä.
Tässä kadonneessa valtakunnassa hulluus on väistämätöntä. Mutta vaikka mielesi on murtunut, tutkimuksesi ei lopu tähän. Dim Carcosassa et häviä vaikka kauhusi ylittäisi mielenterveytesi. Sen sijaan matkaat eteenpäin ja vaikka kertoimet sinua vastaan ovat mahdottomat, toivo paluusta hengissä kotiin kantaa eteenpäin.

In This War of Mine: The Board Game there are no points or competition, just those who make it until the ceasefire. Players send their characters to do various tasks, from crafting new furniture to exploring the city. However, the game is not only about character management. The story and the players’ choices are key to the gameplay, as their outcome can define the rest of the experience.

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island is a game created by Ignacy Trzewiczek, the author of Stronghold. This time Trzewiczek takes the players to a deserted island, where they'll play the parts of shipwreck survivors confronted by an extraordinary adventure. They'll be faced with the challenges of building a shelter, finding food, fighting wild beasts, and protecting themselves from weather changes. Building walls around their homes, animal domestication, constructing weapons and tools from what they find and much more awaits them on the island. The players decide in which direction the game will unfold and – after several in-game weeks of hard work – how their settlement will look. Will they manage to discover the secret of the island in the meantime? Will they find a pirate treasure, or an abandoned village? Will they discover an underground city or a cursed temple at the bottom of a volcano?

The multi-award-winning strategy game Hansa Teutonica is back in a Big Box edition including the base game and all expansions. In the game, players attempt to increase their standing as merchants in the Hanseatic League by gaining prestige points in various ways. For instance, they can try to establish a network of counting offices in new Hansa cities by occupying an entire trade route between two cities — but before that happens, player markers can also be displaced by other players. Players may also aim to develop their trading skills, improving their abilities throughout the course of play. With only two actions per turn and a variety of contested opportunities, every turn is equally quick and strategically demanding.
Hansa Teutonica is a highly interactive strategy game as players block and push each other each turn, but it also gives cunning players the chance to put being blocked into an advantage. The game's many possible strategies can also be tested and perfected on the variant game boards of the beloved Britannia and East expansions.
Queen Gimnax has ordered the reclamation of the northern lands. As a cartographer in her service, you are sent to map this territory, claiming it for the Kingdom of Nalos. Through official edicts, the queen announces which lands she prizes most, and you will increase your reputation by meeting her demands. But you are not alone in this wilderness. The Dragul contest your claims with their outposts, so you must draw your lines carefully to reduce their influence. Reclaim the greatest share of the queen’s desired lands and you will be declared the greatest cartographer in the kingdom.
In Cartographers, players compete to earn the most reputation stars by the time four seasons have passed. Each season, players draw on their map sheets and earn reputation by carrying out the queen's edicts before the season is over. The player with the most reputation stars at the end of winter wins!
The Fox in the Forest on tikkipeli kahdelle pelaajalle. Tavallisten maa- ja numeroarvojen lisäksi pelissä on satuolentoja, kuten Kettu ja Noita. Näillä on kykyjä vaihtaa vaikka valtti kesken kaiken tai aloittaa vuoro vielä hävitynkin tikin jälkeen.
Pisteitä saa voittamalla useampia tikkejä kuin kanssapelaaja, mutta siinäkin pitää olla kieli keskellä suuta. Jos voittaa liian monta tikkiä kuin käy kuten ahneelle saduissa monesti käy…

Charles IV has been crowned King of Bohemia and ruler of the Holy Roman Empire. From his castle in Prague, he oversees construction of new fortifications: a bridge across the Vltava River, a university, and a cathedral rising within the walls of the castle itself. Prague is already among the largest cities in Europe. King Charles will make it the capital of an empire!
In Praga Caput Regni, players take the role of wealthy citizens who are organizing various building projects in medieval Prague. By expanding their wealth and joining in the construction, they gain favor with the king. Players choose from six actions on the game board — the "action crane" — that are always available, but which are weighted with a constantly shifting array of costs and benefits. By using these actions, you can increase your resources, improve the strength of your chosen actions, and build "New Prague City", the Charles Bridge, or city walls. You can possibly gain additional actions or even participate in the construction of St. Vitus Cathedral.
Clever players will discover synergies between carefully timed actions and the rewards from constructing civic projects as all of the mechanisms mesh together. At the end of the game, the player who most impressed King Charles wins.
Näin oli aina tarkoitus tapahtua ... olet lopulta matkalla mielisairaalaan.
The Unspeakable Oath on toinen Mythos-paketti "Path to Carcosa" -sykliin. Se vie sinut Arkhamin mielisairaalan syvyyksiin. Löydät itsesi lukittujen ovien takana, epäonnistuneena ja sekopäiden ympäröimänä. Ja silti, saat vihjeitä vielä syvemmästä ja synkemmästä salaisuudesta.
Skenaario syventää pelin ulottuvuuksia perinteisen roolipelin ja korttipelikokemuksen välillä. Kaksikymmentäneljä pelaajakorttia (kaksi kopiota kahdestatoista erilaisesta kortista) antaa sinulle pääsyn useisiin varakkaisiin suojelijoihin ja antaa mahdollisuuden "oppia" virheistä.
June, 1944: Through the D-Day landings, the Allies have seized a foothold on the beaches of Normandy. Now you must lead your troops forward as you push deeper into France and drive the German forces back. You will face intense resistance, machine gun fire, and mortar bombardment, but a great commander can turn the situation to their advantage!
Undaunted: Normandy is a deck-building game that places you and your opponent in command of American or German forces, fighting through a series of missions critical to the outcome of World War II. Use your cards to seize the initiative, bolster your forces, or control your troops on the battlefield. Strong leadership can turn the tide of battle in your favor, but reckless decisions could prove catastrophic as every casualty you take removes a card from your deck. Take charge amidst the chaos of battle, hold fast in the face of opposition, and remain undaunted.
Ensimmäisten ihmisten saapumisesta planeetta Caravanialle on kulunut vuosisatoja. Legenda sielukristalleista on kulkenut näiden uudisasukkaiden keskuudessa sukupolvelta toiselle. Tarinan mukaan planeetan alkuperäisten asukkaiden sielut olivat niin puhtaita, että ne säilyivät kuoleman jälkeen voimakkaina ja kauniina kristalleina. Jos tällaisen otti käteensä, saattoi sen sisällä tuntea sykkivän elämän. Ihmiset alkoivat näiden kristallien löytymisen jälkeen käyttää niitä suurten golemien rakentamiseen ja henkiinherättämiseen. Monien vuosisatojen jälkeen, nuo puhtaat sielut voivat taas toimia ja hengittää. Pelaajat ovat kauppiaita, jotka haluavat koota näitä kristalleita luodakseen mitä kauniimpia ja voimakkaimpia golemeita. Century: Golem edition on Emerson Matsuuchin palkitun Century: Spice Roadin erikoisversio, jossa on entistäkin kauniimmat komponentit ja aivan oma teemansa.
Azul (lausutaan espanjalaisittain “athul”, mutta ei se atsuliksi sanominen tee ketään huonoksi peliharrastajaksi, rennosti vaan) on maailmankuuluun Michael Kieslingin suunnittelema peli. Azul tuo maurilaistaiteen estetiikkaa lautapeliin. Pelaajat kisaavat keskenään Evoran kuninkaallisen palatsin koristelussa. Koristekaakeloinnissa on pidettävä kieli keskellä suuta, jotta lopputulos on upein mahdollinen. Kaakeleita ei kannata myöskään yhtään antaa mennä hukkaan.
Maurit toivat muassaan “azulejosit”, alunperin sinivalkeat keramiikkakaakelit, jotka portugalilaiset sitten ottivat innolla käyttöön rakentaessaan Alhambra-palatsia kuninkaalleen Manuel I:lle. Kuningas hämmästeli tätä Etelä-Espanjassa olevan linnansa sisätilojen kauneutta ja tilasi heti samanlaiset palatsiinsa Portugalissa.
Azul-pelissä pelaajat värväävät vuorotellen värillisiä kaakelilaattoja pöydän keskeltä. Vuoron lopussa saa pisteitä siitä, miten hyvin laatat on asetettu omalle pelaajalaudalleen. Tietyistä kuvioista ja seteistä saa lisäpisteitä ja hukkapalat tuo miinuksia. Eniten pisteitä kerännyt tietysti voittaa.
Azul voitti vuonna 2018 mm. lautapelimaailman Oscarin, Spiel des Jahresin. Tässä on kaunis, abstrakti peli moneen lähtöön. Huomatkaa, että meillä on myynnissä kansainvälinen versio englanninkielisillä säännöillä.
Shattered Aeons on kuudes ja viimeinen Mythos-paketti "The Forgotten Age" -syklissä Arkham Horror: The Card Game -peliin.
The Forgotten Agessa matkusit Keski-Amerikan pimeimpiin kulmiin etsimään kadonnutta atsteekkien kaupunkivaltiota. Se mitä löysit löytöretkesi aikana, voi olla aikamme suurin tieteellinen löytö, mutta se voi olla myös Maapallon loppu.
Koko The Forgotten Age -syklin ajan olet yrittänyt korjata virheesi, jahdaten tietoa löytämästäsi salaperäisestä esineestä ja sitä jahtaavasta ryhmästä. Matkallasi etelään, olet paljastanut salaisuuksia, jotka uhkaavat koko käsitystäsi maailmasta, ajasta ja ihmiskunnan paikasta maailmankaikkeudessa. Nyt viimeiseen ja suurimpaan kysymykseesi vastataan Shattered Aeonsissa. Mutta ole varovainen, koska pelkien kuolevaisten ei välttämättä ole tarkoitus saada tällaista tietoa ja etsimäsi totuudet voivat tuhota sen vähän mitä järjestäsi on jäljellä.
Not far from Arkham, the stooped and weathered town of Innsmouth squats on the Atlantic coast. An aura of decrepitude and decay hangs over the city like the ocean fog, from the weirdly glowing windows of the Gilman House to the deserted and toppling Fish Street bridge. Beyond the city limits, the Innsmouth shoreline is pocked with half-flooded tidal tunnels and unnatural coves. Who knows what strange, abyssal trinkets you might find, among the skeletons of fish and rotting seaweed?
The Innsmouth Conspiracy, the sixth deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game, invites you to take your first steps in a twisting, time-jumping tale, starting with the campaign’s first two scenarios included in this expansion. From the heart of Innsmouth itself to the torturous coastline and beyond, these scenarios tee up an adventure that will continue to unfold across the subsequent six Mythos Packs. Far from including just two new scenarios, however, The Innsmouth Conspiracy brings five new investigators to the table with an undersea trove of player cards to support new types of decks—along with new mechanics for players to sink their teeth into, including keys, flood tokens, bless tokens, and curse tokens!
Into the Maelstrom is the sixth Mythos Pack in The Innsmouth Conspiracy cycle.
Throughout your Innsmouth investigations, you have ventured into tide-hollowed caves and dripping tunnels - but these watery caverns are only the antechamber of the Deep Ones' domain. A hidden city rests beneath the choppy waves of the North Atlantic, slumbering at the bottom of the ocean. If you're going to protect the world from suffering the same fate as Innsmouth, you'll need to venture into the heart of the storm.
Within this Mythos Pack, you'll find the final scenario of The Innsmouth Conspiracy cycle, inviting you and your fellow investigators to dive into the darkness beneath the waves and confront the Deep Ones in their own city - putting an end to this threat forever. Combined with the addition of new player cards to upgrade your decks, Into the Maelstrom is a perfect capstone for a cycle of danger and mystery.
Embark on your own adventures in J.R.R. Tolkien’s iconic world with The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth, a fully cooperative, app-supported board game for one to five players! You’ll battle villainous foes, make courageous choices, and strike a blow against the evil that threatens the land—all as part of a thrilling campaign that leads you across the storied hills and dales of Middle-earth.
Each individual game of Journeys in Middle-earth is a single adventure in a larger campaign. You’ll explore the vast and dynamic landscapes of Middle-earth, using your skills to survive the challenges that you encounter on these perilous quests. As you and your fellow heroes explore the wilderness and battle the dark forces arrayed against you, the game’s companion app guides you to reveal the looming forests, quiet clearings, and ancient halls of Middle-earth, while also controlling the enemies you encounter. Whether you’re venturing into the wild on your own or with close companions by your side, you can write your own legend in the history of Middle-earth.
At the edge of our solar system, a dark planet may lurk. In 2015, astronomers estimated a large distant planet could explain the unique orbits of dwarf planets and other objects. Since then, astronomers have been scanning the sky, hoping to find this planet.
In The Search for Planet X, players take on the role of astronomers who use observations and logical deductions to search for this hypothetical planet. Each game, the companion app randomly selects an arrangement of objects and a location for Planet X following predefined logic rules.
Each round, as the earth travels around the sun, players use the app to perform scans and attend conferences. As they gain information about the location of the objects, they mark that information on their deduction sheets. As players learn the locations of the various objects, they can start publishing theories, which is how players score points.
As more and more objects are found, players narrow down the possible locations for Planet X. Once a player believes they know its location and the objects on either side of it, they use the app to conduct a search. The game ends when a player successfully locates Planet X, and all players have a final chance to score some additional points.
The Search for Planet X captures the thrill of discovery, the puzzle-y nature of astronomical investigation, and the competition inherent in the scientific process. Can you be the first to find Planet X?
Cascadia is a puzzly tile-laying and token-drafting game featuring the habitats and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest.
In the game, you take turns building out your own terrain area and populating it with wildlife. You start with three hexagonal habitat tiles (with five types of habitat in the game), and on a turn you choose a new habitat tile that's paired with a wildlife token, then place that tile next to your other ones and place the wildlife token on an appropriate habitat. (Each tile depicts 1-3 types of wildlife from the five types in the game, and you can place at most one tile on a habitat.) Four tiles are on display, with each tile being paired at random with a wildlife token, so you must make the best of what's available — unless you have a nature token to spend so that you can pick your choice of each item.
Ideally you can place habitat tiles to create matching terrain that reduces fragmentation and creates wildlife corridors, mostly because you score for the largest area of each type of habitat at game's end, with a bonus if your group is larger than each other player's. At the same time, you want to place wildlife tokens so that you can maximize the number of points scored by them, with the wildlife goals being determined at random by one of the three scoring cards for each type of wildlife. Maybe hawks want to be separate from other hawks, while foxes want lots of different animals surrounding them and bears want to be in pairs. Can you make it happen?
The Depths of Yoth is the fifth Mythos Pack in The Forgotten Age cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game.
Following the events of The City of Archives, your team of investigators find yourselves trapped deep in the of the Earth and the only way out is...down. Your mission to protect humanity continues, but the threats to your life increase with each level of the descent. There is no telling what monsters have grown in these dark caverns and now pursue your team, but you cannot look back, or you are surely lost.
This Mythos Pack features new player cards to customize your investigators' decks and treacherous encounter cards to immerse you in the peril of your investigation.
Nemesis is a 1-5 player survival sci-fi game where players are woken up from hibernation as a crew of a space ship. The emergency procedure states that there is a critical system failure and the space ship can't continue its cruise. The goal of the crew is to find what is causing this failure and fix the situation to safely return back to Earth. The main problem is that one crew member is dead. Somebody crashed his hibernation chamber and pulled his body out. In addition, if you listen closely, some additional noises and sounds can be heard. New ones, strange ones, ones that were never heard before…
Nemesis is a cooperation game combined with bluffing, backstabbing, and other elements of a science-fiction survival horror adventure.
Delve into the secrets of The House with No Name in A Thousand Shapes of Horror, the second Mythos Pack in "The Dream-Eaters" cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game! After half of your team has seemingly become trapped in the Dreamlands, you decide to force your way into the realm in your physical body instead of traveling there in your sleep. This method comes with plenty of dangers, but it will hopefully prevent you from becoming trapped yourself. But if you wish to enter the Dreamlands, you must first find a key.
A Thousand Shapes of Horror is Scenario 2–B of "The Web of Dreams" campaign. This scenario can be played on its own in Standalone Mode or combined with the other expansions in "The Dream-Eaters" cycle to form either a larger four-part or eight-part campaign. Inspired by H. P. Lovecraft’s classic short story “The Unnamable,” this adventure takes you to the most haunted corners of Arkham, where the veil between realm is drawn thin and even the most rational mind may be forced to confront the possibility of a world beyond the one we know. Do you have the composure to hold onto your sanity and save your friends, or will ineffable terrors tear your mind apart?
