    Kanban

    You work in a factory focused on lean production. You must impress Sandra, the factory manager, who will review your performance and keep the factory ticking like a clock. Depending on the gameplay experience you want, you set the difficulty level as either "Nice Sandra", or "Mean Sandra" mode, an easy-going or tough boss!

    Tiny Towns

    2 to 6 players compete to build the most amazing Town. Each turn the "Master Builder" determines which resource will be produced, and all the players gain one unit of that resource. Players can decide to use their resources to construct buildings according to the construction cards in play. Choose carefully! Where you build, and what you build will determine how dense your Town will be and how many points it will score! At the end of the turn, a new player becomes Master Builder. Play continues until every player's Town is at max density, and then each Town is scored to determine the winner

    March of the Ants

    As spring dawns the great thaw begins. Deep beneath the lush meadow grasses the queen stirs in her nest and the colony comes to life. Soldiers venture forth, battling centipedes while clashing with opposing colonies for territory. Workers dig an ever-expanding network of tunnels in their tireless search for food. The first larvae hatch and it is clear this generation will be different: the young colonies rapidly evolve into a multitude of new forms. The ants march out to claim the meadow as their own.

    In March of the Ants, you create the shared Meadow board by sending your ants to explore it, revealing and strategically placing two dozen unique tiles like Fern, Pebble, and Nest of Centipedes.

    March of the Ants takes strategy underground...literally!

    • Number of Players: 1-5
    • Ages: 13+

    Godspeed

    The Space Race was a lie.

    Look, it's not that the moon landing was faked. It happened. Neil hates the conspiracy theories. The lie is that we ever wanted to go to the moon. We needed a spectacle to show the people. To justify the massive budgets. The agencies.

    Neil stepped on a rock 239,000 miles from Earth. Big deal. I stepped on an Exoplanet circling Ursae Majoris 18 months earlier. It's a one-way trip - so there ain't any going home. No ticker tape parade for me, but that's ok. I'm here for my country.

    See, the Russians beat us here by a few months. Japanese showed up a few weeks after us. We'll colonize this planet for America. Because there isn't a choice...

    Loch Ness

    "For decades, reporters from around the world have been on the hunt for the Loch Ness monster. But lately reports of sightings of Nessie have been increasing.

    "Such reports naturally have drawn such reporters as the attractive Belinda Viewing from New York, the half-Belgian Claude McMirror, the clever Filosa Sharp, as well as her Londoner competitor Jack Nesstee, and even Nils the Blitzen from Denmark to the Loch. Equipped with the most modern equipment and techniques, these daring reporters have traveled to Scotland, in order to capture the elusive Nessie on film for their newspapers.

    "But the 5 will experience some surprises . . ."

    Photosynthesis

    Welcome to the world of Photosynthesis, the green strategy board game! Plant and shape the ever-changing forest as you cultivate your seeds and your strategy. Take your trees through their life-cycle, from seedling to full bloom to rebirth, and earn points as their leaves collect energy from the revolving sun's rays. Carefully pick where you sow and when you grow, as trees in the shadows are blocked from light, and from points. This game features realistic gameplay and beautiful graphics.
