Coming Soon!

Tzolk’in: The Mayan Calendar
$ 59.95 SRP

The Maya were a highly developed civilization known for its unique art, complex architecture, sophisticated mathematics and advanced knowledge of the stars. At the heart of their society was a mysterious calendar – Tzolk’in. With a length of 260 days, it could predict the right time to plant seeds, the time to build monuments, the day a new baby would be born as well as the movement of the planets. It was the centerpiece of the Mayan cycle of life. We invite you to become one of the ajaw, the leaders of Mayan tribes. Please the gods and lead your clan to prosperity! As in the life of ancient Maya, the center of our game is the Tzolk’in calendar – a set of gears that rotate each round of the game. This unique system helps you to visualize the cyclic flow of time and plan your actions in advance. Harvest crops now, or wait for them to grow a little more for higher yield? All will be clear to see on the wheels of time.

Copy Cat
$ 49.95 SRP

In a fable commonly attributed to Aesop, a jackdaw adorned himself with borrowed plumes to make himself appear more majestic than he actually was, only to be exposed by his peers. Although the fable is ancient, its moral, do not strut in borrowed plumes lest you risk being exposed, still holds true today. You do not have to live in a banana republic, in which corruption, betrayal and deception are common place, to be bribed, deceived and cheated. And if it can happen in your own circle of friends, which can have an especially painful and bitter effect, it can certainly happen on the big stage of politics. In fact, politics is a hotbed of power-hungry and egocentric personalities, who will often stop at nothing to advance their own political careers and agendas. Money changes hands, empty promises are made, shameless lies are told and power is abused, and: some people even buy their own doctor titles! Any similarities to real people or events, whether in image or content, are purely coincidental and not deliberate! Put yourself in the shoes of a politician and start your political campaign. In “Copycat”, the end justifies the means: it is not how you are elected, but that you are elected. Collect victory points to move around the career path as far as possible. So, put away your scruples, stick out your elbows, and let your political campaign begin!

Goblins Inc
$ 49.95 SRP

You are a goblin employee in a factory called “GOBLINS INC.” that is dedicated to building giant robots for war and enjoyment. You will enter a competition to become the new “Big Boss”, since the old one finally chose to hang up his trusted whip and retire. You will form teams and try to design, build and test the best giant robot possible in wild earth-shattering combat. The problem is, although you will have to work in teams, there can be only one winner. During the game, the players will team up and will take turns designing and building a robot together. They will then cooperate in piloting and shooting at the other team with their robot in a grand battle of epic proportions. But what your teammates do not know is that you have secret goals with which to impress the “Big Boss”. Can you keep your teammate happy and still destroy the enemy robot? Anything is possible because there is no “G” in teamwork.

Galaxy Trucker: Anniversary Edition
$ 125.00 SRP

Space… The final frontier. The biggest freeway to roam and make a quick buck! It has been five years since Corporation Incorporated started its new and progressive policy to deliver goods and construction materials to the struggling outer rim colonies. During that time, an army of eccentrics and roughnecks joined the ranks of brave truckers and trekked to the farthest reaches of the galaxy in ramshackle spaceships of their own construction. Planets have been explored, space stations looted and ships have crashed. It is time to celebrate! Not because celebration expenses are tax deductible, it’s because Corporation Incorporated cares. The Anniversary Edition is the ultimate Galaxy Trucker experience. From the classic Galaxy Trucker through both Big Expansions, it contains everything we have released so far and some goodies to top it off. In a single big box you will get all the tiles, cards, spaceship schematics, tokens, rules and figures you and your friends will need for the greatest Galaxy Trucker game. Available while stocks last.
