Call to Glory, packaged in a mid-sized tin box, is a fast and fun card game in which players try to collect Japanese characters of different values. When a player has two or more cards of the same character in his hand, he can (possibly) lay these cards on the table and score them at the end of the round. If, however, an opponent lays out more cards of the same type, then characters of that type already on the table are discarded. When the game ends, players score for the types of characters they have on the table.
Braintopia is a simple game that will test your skills of observation, quick thinking, and coordination. The game is made up of eight fast-paced challenges that keep you on your toes as you race to refocus your mind and solve each puzzle before your opponents. As you and up to five other players proceed through the challenge deck, you collect the cards you have answered both accurately and most quickly. A correctly identified tactile card or a pair of any other challenge card will earn you a piece of the brain. The first player to four brain pieces wins!
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.
Age of War is a quick-playing game of conquest. Fourteen cards are laid out at the start of the game, each showing one castle and the symbols required to conquer this castle, with the symbols separated into battle lines. Each castle belongs to a clan, with some clans having only a single castle and some having up to four castles.

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.
