You will be able to find more of our games in Gen Con such as:
Carrotia is a light co-operative, tile placement game for 1-6 players where the team collectively works together against a timer to build three different mazes of increasing size. The master rabbit needs to dash from entrance to the exit within a specific number of moves according to the current mission card, scooping up the precious carrots while avoiding the owl, hawk and other birds as they swoop low over the zones causing mayhem and mischief.
Although the task may seem daunting, the master rabbit has some supporters, other rabbits that bring a unique special ability to assist the team and and thwart the hungry predators!
It is time to polish your armor and sharpen your sword, for mighty Caesar has called for his legions to assemble.
The Cohort is a fast-paced card game for 2-6 players in a race to be the first to assemble a Legion and show Caesar you are the greatest of his commanders.
Legions are composed of 3 different Cohorts, each made of one of seven different types of units: Praetorians, Catapults, Centurions, Sagittarii, Equites, Legionaries and Velites. During a turn, you draw two cards, keep one and give the other to a player of your choice. You can keep that card in your hand or trigger it and create a Cohort. Be careful though, for the troops are rowdy! Until a Cohort is complete their behaviour works against you.
So snap them into line as quickly as you can, disrupt the plans of your fellow commanders and show Caesar that your Legion is the greatest in all the Empire.
From deep within the wastelands, far from the Golden City comes a new breed of survivors. Forged in the most desolate conditions these opportunistic individuals prowl the ruins watching for passers-by – to either join or exploit.
Skilled nomads, these ‘Hitchhikers’ can twist any situation to their advantage, whether through silver-tongued and honeyed words or brute force and lethal cunning. Having been bred far from the Golden City, some Hitchhikers have only recently heard of the glittering utopia and many have made their way across hundreds of miles, braving unimaginable dangers and hardships for a chance to learn more about this potential prize.
Some consider the Hitchhikers to be parasites that latch onto and leech from others, but for them it is a way of life and the ultimate path to survival. They are wild rovers, moving from one opportunity to the next in search of the last big pay-off… But they are not the only ones who come from the shadows.. Riders & gangs, rebels & outlanders are rising in the wastelands. They tried to enter the Golden City, but they were stopped by the Forces and now they are exiled for ever in the wastelands. Anyone who is trying to reach the Golden City, has to face them and their minions!
We will soon create and post Gen Con packs and update them on our shop. Feel free to contat us if you have any questions.
