The Ares Project

Earth has been devastated by thousands of years of human exploitation. The salvation of mankind lies millions of miles away, in the Martian tundra.

Mankind embarks on The Ares Project, an ambitious and audacious program to terraform and colonize the red planet. As they spread across the surface of Mars, four factions will fight for the future... Lead one of the four unique sides in fast-paced, card-driven action. Build your forces, upgrade them with advanced technologies, and launch them into battle.

Quest: A Time of Heroes
$39.99 SRP

In Quest – A Time of Heroes, each player takes on the role of a brave hero. Together, players experience thrilling adventures, solve difficult riddles, and fight cruel enemies that do the bidding of one player only: the Quest Master.

Based on an adventure text, he is going to put the prowess and the cunning of the heroes to the test – but also their intelligence. The heroes’ decisions guide the adventure and, thus, the fate of all good peoples.

IN 12TH CENTURY JAPAN, the Minamoto and Taira clans vie for power while retired Emperor Go-Shirakawa plays his rivals against one another. One of the three factions will triumph to impose the coming social order. In the shadow of these elite powers, a few ninja scheme to exploit the chaos. Daring raids, skill mastery, and subtle intrigue are essential to establishing one’s honor. When the new era dawns, one ninja will flourish as the Ninjato, the Invisible Sword of the ruling family.
