New from Eagle Games! XENON Profiteer, the gallerist and Wombat Rescue!

Coming in September!
the gallerist
$79.99 SRP

This age of art and  capitalism has created a need for a new occupation, the gallerist, which combines elements of the art dealer, museum curator, and artists’ manager.

You are about to take on that job! You will promote and nurture artists; buy, display, and sell their art; as well as build and exert your international influence. As a result you will achieve the notoriety needed to draw visitors to your gallery from all over the world. There’s a lot of work to be done, but don’t worry, you can hire assistants to help you and there’s a long queue of unemployed Art aficionados lined up, hoping to work with someone of your stature. 

Build your fortune by running the most lucrative gallery ever. Maximize your money and thus win the game by: 

-Attracting visitors to your gallery
-Exhibiting and selling works of art
-Investing in artists’ promotion to increase art value
-Achieving trends and notoriety as well as curator and dealer goals

XENON Profiteer
$29.99 SRP

XENON Profiteer is a highly thematic, deck-deconstruction, euro game for 2-4 entrepreneurs. Each player takes control of their own Air Separation Facility and distills Xenon from their Systems to complete lucrative contracts. You will also expand your facility by building upgrades, pipelines, and acquiring new contracts.

In a decidedly different take on the classic deck-building format, XENON Profiteer not only actively encourages players to remove cards from their decks, it is absolutely essential in order to isolate Xenon. Players strategically remove cards from their hand (and deck) through Distilling in order to isolate the Xenon in their hand.

Players also buy powerful upgrade cards for their facility in order to become more efficient, and, depending how much they pay, can either place them directly into their system (deck) or install them directly into their facility to be used every turn for the remainder of the game. 

After a player has either completed 5 contracts or installed 5 upgrades, the game end is triggered and the player with the most Xenon points is the winner.

Do you have the ingenuity, strategy, and tactical fortitude it takes to be recognized by several reputable business publications as the owner of the most influential domestic supplier of Xenon?

Wombat Rescue
$49.99 SRP

In this novel game by designer Matt Wolfe, you play a Mama wombat. The dastardly dingo has stormed your burrow and chased away 4 of your baby wombats! 

You will need to eat and digest food in order to produce poop cubes, with which you will build smell areas so you can navigate your environment, find your baby wombats, and bring them home. The player who best plans their smell areas and moves most efficiently will find their 4 babies, bring them home and prove victorious!

Don’t be fooled by the wonderfully colorful and unique art by Polish Artist Mateusz Szulik, or the unusual theme from US Designer Matt Wolfe. Wombat Rescue is not a kid’s game. It is really a family game for ages 10 and up or a light to medium gamer’s game for 1 to 4 players that takes about one hour to play!
