Gravwell: Escape from the 9th Dimension
$35.00 SRP

After being pulled through a black hole, four spaceships find themselves in a dimension with physics never before encountered and without fuel. By mining and collecting basic elements from the space dust and asteroids in the area, you can muster just enough thrust to move your ship. But in this bizarre dimension, gravity is not working like how you’ve been taught. Your ship will typically travel towards the nearest object...which is usually another ship...and those ships are moving. Sometimes forwards, and sometimes backwards.

Time is running out to save your crew and your ship! As a grim reminder of the cost of failing to escape, the frozen hulks of dead spacecraft litter the escape route. But with careful card play, you can slingshot past these derelict craft and be the first to escape from the Gravwell!

Can you condense a well-known phrase down to just a few letters and symbols? Can you do it using fewer characters than any other player, but still get your message across? Find out with ROFL!, the hilarious party game of mix-communications created by the acclaimed game illustrator John Kovalic.

ROFL! pits players against each other as they strive to condense messages down to as few characters as possible. If the Guesser can figure out the original phrase from your clue before time runs out, you both score points! The player with the most points after three rounds wins the game!

Double Feature

Players earn points by being the first to name a movie that links elements from two Double Feature cards. The first player to earn enough points wins Double Feature!

Double Feature is the perfect game for anyone who enjoys movies. Every card contains a movie element from one of seven different Categories. It could be a movie prop, a movie location, a character from a movie, a scene in a movie, a theme or genre of a movie, a setting of a movie, or a production feature of a movie.

Two cards are turned over, and players race to think of a movie that contains both of the elements in play. For example, if the cards are ‘Black and White’ (Production) and ‘New York’ (Setting), correct answers could include anything from ‘King Kong’ to ‘Manhattan’!
