Inspired by a love of classic video games, Boss Monster: The Dungeon Building Card Game pits 2-4 players in a competition to build the ultimate side-scrolling dungeon. Players compete to lure and destroy hapless adventurers, racing to outbid one another to see who can build the most enticing, treasure-filled dungeon. The goal of Boss Monster is to be the first Boss to amass ten Souls, which are gained when a Hero is lured and defeated — but a player can lose if his Boss takes five Wounds from Heroes who survive his dungeon.
Coup: Reformation, an expansion for the original version of Coup: City State from La Mame Games, adds new cards to the game and rules for factions and team play that increases tension in the early stages for four or more players and (thanks to 15 additional character cards) allows Coup to be better played with up to ten players.
Cockroach Poker is a reverse set collection game that has nothing to do with poker – except that the game is all about bluffing, but with cards that show cockroaches, rats and stink bugs instead of queens, 10s and aces. The goal of the game is to force another player to collect 4 of any one type of critter.
Act Too, a.k.a. Mimtoo, is a simple game of miming and gestures that is played in teams. One player on the active team draws both a character card and an action card, then silently acts out the card combination – for example, an electrician dancing the polka. This player’s teammates have one minute to guess the answer, collecting a card if they do so. The team that collects the most cards wins!
In the U.S. wild west, the eternal battle between the law and the outlaws keeps heating up. Suddenly, a rain of arrows darken the sky: It’s an Indian attack! Are you bold enough to keep up with the Indians? Do you have the courage to challenge your fate? Can you expose and defeat the ruthless gunmen around you?
This game is from an odd genre, real-time card games. Each of the players (except the dealer) is a person falling to his death. The goal is not to live, rather just to be the last one to go splat. The dealer continues dealing cards to players, eventually giving them ‘ground’ cards. But on the way down players can do all kinds of nasty stuff to each other to ensure their relative longevity.
Farm fresh produce is in higher demand than ever! There’s just one problem. Well, several. Higher demand means more yay-hoos trying their hand at the soiled science. There are also rampant dust storms, errant robotic threshers, and…FrankenCrops? No worry. As they say, the early bird gets the worm, and any taters attached to that worm.
