    Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator

    Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator lets you turn your living room into the bridge of a spaceship. You and your friends assume the jobs of Captain, Helm, Science, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control. Together you operate your ship and defend the sector from evil aliens.

    Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computers together. One computer runs the simulation and the "main screen", while the others serve as workstations for the normal jobs a bridge officer might do. Artemis is a social game where several players are together in one room ("bridge") , and while they all work together, one player plays the Captain, a person who sits in the middle, doesn't have a workstation, and tells everyone what to do.

    Here is a cool video on the various bridge positions: Artemis SBS Console Tutorial:

    Magic Maze

    Recently stripped of your possessions, your group of down-on-their-luck adventurers has nary a copper piece between you. Your only option if you're to resume your dungeon-delving activities is to sack the local mall of valuables and supplies.

    Magic Maze is a real-time, co-operative game. Each player can control any of the 4 Hero pawns whenever he wants in order to make that hero perform a very specific action, to which other players do not have access: move north, explore a new area, ride an escalator... all of this requires rigorous co-operation between the players in order to succeed at moving the heroes wisely, and complete your mission before the sand timer runs out.

    Moreover, you will only be allowed to communicate for short periods during the game. The rest of the time, you must play without giving any visual or audio cues to each other.

    Pandemic the Cure

    Pandemic: The Cure is a stand alone, dice-based version of classic cooperative Pandemic board game. Just like the original, you win or lose together as your team travels the globe treating diseases and keeping hot spots in check while researching cures. In this version, though, rolling dice determines everything from the outcome of your actions to the behavior of diseases. Each character has both a unique ability and a set of dice you roll at the start of each turn. Depending on the results, you can fly or sail between population centers, treat diseases in your region, collect samples for further study, or exchange information with other players. Try for the perfect turn by rerolling your unused dice, but each biohazard symbol that comes up brings you one step closer to the next epidemic.

    • Ages: 13+

    Kingdomnio

    Dominoes with a kingdom building twist. Each turn, connect a new domino to your existing kingdom, making sure at least one of its sides connects to a matching terrain type already in play. The game mechanics for obtaining the tiles is clever: the order of who picks first depends on which tile was previously chosen. Make sure to secure tiles with crowns- these royal treasures help to multiply the worth of your kingdom at the end of the game! The game ends when each player has completed a 5x5 grid, and then points are counted based on number of connecting tiles and crowns.
