The Koryŏ dynasty is now defunct, replaced by the Chosŏn dynasty founded by General Yi. Unfortunately, soon after its founding, figures of intrigue nicknamed the “Watchers” appeared all over the realm of Chosŏn. Since then, feud and disorder has sprouted everywhere, but instead of the usual political contests and sneaky manipulations, armed warfare has become the rule. The influence of the “Watchers” on some families has grown strong, and some whisper that their extraordinary powers even allow them to travel through time…

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.
In Citadels, players take on new roles each round to represent characters they hire in order to help them acquire gold and erect buildings.

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.
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.
