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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
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.
