It was easy to learn, it flows spectacularly well...it has an organic end-game timer, and the character cards add a nice element of engine-building.

The game begins when your massive Worldships reach the fringe, where you must explore, wage war, use diplomacy, and construct buildings to gain victory. The fringe is sparsely populated and the few local sentient species are struggling to survive, leaving huge regions of planets open for exploration and colonization. Many species are eager to ally themselves with a powerful empire to gain security and stability in a chaotic and difficult time. As you explore and interact with planets, you will discover unfolding stories of the fringe. Each inhabited planet is home to a unique alien species, with their own goals, values, and problems. Will you give aid by fighting off pirates, transporting goods, and curing strange diseases? Or will you invade and rule with a cruel hand?

Telestrations Against Humanity

A Lascivious Late-Night Party Game. Absolutely no drawing talent required! In fact, a lack of drawing skills is an asset when the name of the game is miscommunication and chaos. Draw what you see and guess what you saw for absurdly unpredictable outcomes. Each player hastily sketches a hidden word, passes it to the next player who must guess what's been drawn (yeah right), write down that guess, and then the next player sketches that, and on it goes. Now imagine havoc unleashed when this same classic party game is played using a custom curated selection of Cards Against Humanity cards. Some things can never be unseen and unheard. Consider yourself warned.

Too Many Bones

You are a gearlock, a funny looking "totally not goblin", who gets powers and abilities by choosing dice, and originally rolling dice was rolling "the bones", so too many bones is about having too many dice. That can't be right, this game it always feels like you can never get enough dice, maybe it should be called not enough bones. But some of the die faces have bones, and rolling them means you didn't get to activate what you were probably looking to do, yeah, that must be it. Too many bones. BUT WAIT, we can use those bones to activate backup plans, which may be what you wanted to do in the first place, meaning you may not have enough bones? This cooperative die-rolling RPG is sure to test your tactics. Win or lose, it's all about the adventure. May you have "No more than or less than the amount you needed" Bones!
