Aquarium: Catch and Release Card Game

You are in a fishy business! You only have a few hours and a couple casts of your net in order to catch the best sea creatures for your aquarium. On your turn, draw and discard up to 3 times until you find a card you want; then add the card to your aquarium to score points. But beware—you may get a shark!

Beach Vacay

It’s time for some fun in the sun! In this lightweight, relaxing game, you are all trying to have the most groovy beach vacation. Play cooperatively to build sand castles or read or take walks in the sand, but you also balance these activities with keeping the vacation “vibe” going.

It’s your first day on the job in Belt-R-Bust Inc., the 22nd largest asteroid mining company in the galaxy. Here, the boss believes in trial by fire.

Bluff Words

Bluff Words! combines speed, word building, and bluffing. In this party game, you will be challenging each other’s word skills and racing to use letters to complete words. When the draw deck runs out, the player with the least points wins.

Mechanics: Roll and write / 4X

Galactic Rollers

The Admiral is very busy: she’s been tasked with taking over yet another galaxy for the empire. That’s why she’s turned to you, her Strategy Clerks, to simultaneously plot out the fastest way to gain control the galaxy by taking over all 10 planets through settling, conquering, and trading. Whoever plans the most efficiently in this roll and write game will be promoted to Junior Admiral! Galaxy Rollers distills the experience of a 4X space game into a crunchy 45 minute roll and write. 

Audience: Families, Casual, Kids

Mechanics: Drafting

Status: Available to publishers

Zoo Builder

Let’s build a zoo! In Zoo Builders players will draft animals, visitors, and exhibits in order to build the best zoo and score the most points. A great entry-level drafting game, adults can have fun playing with their children and both will learn about animals from around the world! Recommended ages 6+, 2-4 players, and plays in about 20 minutes.
