Street Date: June 30th!
Open Sesame
$19.99 SRP

You’ve opened the Cave of Treasures, now can you escape with the spoils?

Welcome to Open Sesame: a press-your-luck card game of high-stakes memorization and deduction by world renowned game designer and multi-Spiel des Jahres winner, Antoine Bauza (7 Wonders, Takenoko, Tokaido, Rampage, Hanabi).

Players take turns alternating between the role of Ali Baba or one of the thieves guarding the Cave of Treasures. As Ali Baba you’ll steal treasure from the cave until you’re trapped or you flee, and as the thieves, it's your job to carefully observe and recite exactly what it is that Ali is attempting to escape with.

Open Sesame, which also features delectable, eye-catching art, is light-hearted fun perfect for treasure hunters of all ages!

Pirates of the Seas
$59.99 SRP

The design team behind the smash-hit Mysterium invites you to enter into unknown waters with Pirates of the 7 Seas! All hands ahoy, because this isn’t your average pirate game. Are you ready to sail and claim your fair share of the booty?

As the waves break on your ship, take a turn for the topsy-turvy motion of the ocean by rolling your ship dice! But remember, where they land on the board means as much as what you roll! Choose to remain an independent vagabond, or maybe cut a deal with a Governor to become all official-like in your pirating ways. Consult with a Shaman to curse the other pirates or pay a visit to the Cartographer to find a map with some hidden treasure.

The Pirate with the most booty will win the day, but a Pirate’s life isn’t always on the up and up. Savvy?
