Arctic Scavengers with Recon Expansion

In the year 2097, the entire earth was enveloped in a cataclysmic climate shift plunging the globe into another ice age. Over 90% of the world's population was eliminated, driving the survivors to band together into loose communities and tribes. Each player is the leader of a small tribe of survivors. Resources, tools, medicine, and mercenaries are all in scarce supply. Each tribe is pitted against other tribes in a fight for survival. The players build up their tribes, skirmish against other players' tribes, and can even bluff on the way to victory. The leader who gathers the largest tribe will win the game! HQ expansion: The first expansion for Arctic Scavengers introduces the notion of a base camp or headquarters for each tribe. This base camp consists of a Tribal Leader (complete with special abilities) and the potential to construct buildings that can be used strategically during game play. Additionally, the game introduces alternative victory paths, new mercenaries, new tools, and the addition of the "engineering schematics" pile. Recon expansion: The world of Arctic Scavengers pits players against one another in an attempt to survive a post-apocalyptic ice age. As the competing tribes developed and grew, headquarters were established for each tribe (supported via the HQ expansion that shipped with the first release). As the tribes evolved further and struggled for dominance, information has become the most valuable currency. In this new world, deception reigns, leading to a need for reconnaissance.



Adorable Pandaring

Adorable Pandering

Your goal (both in life and in this game) is to have the most adorable pandas. However, the fickle Panda Laws of Adorableness change often, and with them which pandas are adorable. Playing your pandas cleverly and navigating the Laws well will reward you in bamboo! You want that.

The gameplay of Adorable Pandaring is easy to learn. The deck consists of four copies each of ten pandas, numbered 1-10, and four Panda Law cards [High (6-10), Low (1-5), Even, Odd]. On your turn you will play one hidden panda face down, and one panda face up. Your face up panda uses a special ability to do something - steal a panda, change the Panda Law, or even gain bamboo! The Red Panda sits in the middle of the table, ready to award bamboo. If your turn starts and you can see four currently adorable pandas (by the Panda Law), scoring happens. You take the Red Panda card, and follow the instructions on the back. All hidden pandas are revealed, and everyone with at least two adorable pandas in play gets a bamboo. The player(s) with the most adorable pandas get a second bonus bamboo. Then, all adorable pandas are shuffled back into the deck (Other pandas remain). You choose a new Panda Law, and play continues. When someone gets to five bamboo, they win!
