Circular Reasoning is a two to four player game where players race each other to get all their tokens to the center of a circular board.
The board consists of a goal in the center and three concentric tracks of 16 spaces each. Each track has a gate to the next level, but the gates rotate around the board according to the number of tokens found in each level.
Each player gets a square, a triangle, and a circle, which move four, three, or two spaces respectively. In addition to racing toward the center, tokens can be used to block other tokens from using the gates to advance. Because of this, players must predict and work around their opponents moves to secure victory.

Game of 49
Starting with $49 apiece, players in Game of 49 bid to buy spaces on the 49-square (7-by-7) game board. Randomly drawn number cards are auctioned one at a time, with the highest bidder placing a chip on the matching board space.
Wild/Payoff cards give players a choice of where to place their chip and also award cash to all players for their chips on the board: $7 per chip, with a payoff maximum of $49. The first player to claim four spaces in a row, in any direction, wins. That’s “49”!

You’re all bandits trying to rob this boomtown blind! Take down the bank, train, stagecoach, and even the brothel in this frantic and fun real-time dice shoot em’ up!
In Boomtown Bandits, players take turns placing two shooter tokens and a coward token face down around the town in order to hide their identities! All the tokens are then revealed.
A Wild West ‘draw’ occurs whenever any competing bandits try and rob the same location. This shootout is in the form of simultaneous dice rolling and rolling is continuous until there’s a hit or until a coward runs!
Locations include seven loot cards, each with strategic weapons and abilities to help you in future fights. When any location is out of cards the game ends, bonuses are awarded and the bandit with the most loot wins!
Who will rob the most money and be the baddest bandit of them all?
