The Little Prince: Rising to the Stars
$34.99 SRP

The classic story of the Little Prince comes alive as you race through the sky collecting stars and stories en-route to his little planet, B-612. The sky route is set up differently each time you fly for new adventures.

On their turn, players spend cards to move their biplane forward. Be careful where you land, there can be valuable rewards or traps along the way! Finishing quickly will earn you big rewards, but the slow path can grant you more turns. Just don’t run out of cards or your flight is over! Who will end the game with the most stars and who will have the best stories to tell about it!

Can you draw what you can’t see? Draw the pictures as you hear them described. Can you match the original art without ever being able to see it? You don’t need to be a talented artist, you just have to be ready to laugh. In Duplik, a player acting as the Art Director will describe the drawing on the card and everyone else will try to draw it. Players will just need to get the details right, and the rest will take care of itself. Once everyone has a chance to draw, check the original image and see how well you did!

Duplikis a light-hearted game perfect for just about anyone. Sharpen your pencils and get ready to enjoy yourself, whether you’re at a party or just family game night.

Tic Talk
$19.99 SRP

Tic Talk pits two teams against one another each round, with one team creating words and the other trying to figure out what was created. At the start of a round, one team flips its sand timer, then rolls five colored, twelve-sided letter dice; each color corresponds to a row on a paper tablet, with the red die indicating what the first letter in a word must be, the yellow die indicating the second letter in a separate word must be, and so on. The team members think up words that fit these constraints as quickly as possible, stopping the sand timer once they’ve finished.

Following this, a member of the other team looks at the word list, starts the same sand timer in reverse - thereby giving him as much time as the team took to write down its words - then tries to get her teammates to guess these five words.

It’s been almost 100 years since the Very Great Depression ruined the economy of the world. In that time three Solar Wars have been fought over the mineral rights to rich lunar deposits around the galaxy. The conflicts have left Humankind depleted, physically and financially. There are still battles between the corporations, but they are smaller in size and scope. There are usually no more than a couple large cruisers. It’s the kind of fight that can really make a name for a young pilot. Control your hand, manage your attack and exploit your opponent’s mistakes.

In Starfighter, it’s a head to head battle with only one corporation left standing at the end…make sure it’s yours.

It’ll be up to the head of this crime family to determine who they can trust and who has been sticking their fingers into the pot.

Up to 12 gangsters can take part in this tense, hilarious bluffing game. Remembering what loot was left when it gets to you will be key if want to get away with ripping off the Don or you can try to catch him in a sting with an FBI or CIA agent.

This game proves there’s no honor among thieves.
