Rick & Morty: Total Rickall Cooperative Card Game

Rick and Morty: Total Rickall Card Game is based on the Rick and Morty episode of the same name. If you haven't seen it, don't worry. You can still play this wild and wacky game and have plenty of fun — but you really should see it at some point. Seriously. Don't be a Jerry.

Rick has locked the family inside their house. Why? Because the family has grown. Parasites masquerading as family and close friends have infiltrated and have inserted pleasant memories into everyone's minds to make them think they're real — and more keep coming! You must figure out which of these new, zany characters are real and which ones are parasites that need to be exterminated. Think you've got what it takes to save the world?

Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space: Ultimate Edition

Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space is a card game of strategy and bluff set on a badly damaged deep space research ship. On-board systems have failed, plunging the ship into darkness. But even worse: A mysterious alien plague has crept aboard and is transforming the human crew into horrendous monsters! The remaining crewmen desperately try to save their lives by escaping from the derelict spaceship, but in the darkness the aliens are lurking...hungry for human flesh.

The game is played on a hexagon-based map that represents the spaceship. Each player is given a map sheet and a pencil. Map sheets must be of the same zone, and every zone has its specific name. Starting from the first player and continuing clockwise, every turn, each player must make a movement. To do so, the player must write on their map sheet the coordinates of the sector to which they are moving. Every time the players move to the gray (dangerous) sectors they have to draw a card; these cards make the players tell the others their position or lie about it, depending on the card. Every card is kept secret from other players.

The humans' objective is to save themselves using the escape hatches, while the aliens' objective is to hunt down the humans. Each player's identity and position is kept secret; you will need to interpret the movements and behaviors of the other players to learn who and where they really are.

Ra (new edition)

Ra is an auction and set-collection game with an Ancient Egyptian theme. Each turn players are able to purchase lots of tiles with their bidding tiles (suns). Once a player has used up his or her suns, the other players continue until they do likewise, which may set up a situation with a single uncontested player bidding on tiles before the end of the round occurs. Tension builds because the round may end before all players have had a chance to win their three lots for the epoch. The various tiles either give immediate points, prevent negative points for not having certain types at the end of the round (epoch), or give points after the final round. The game lasts for three "epochs" (rounds). The game offers a short learning curve, and experienced players find it both fast-moving and a quick play.

Candy Chaser

Candy Chaser is a bluffing game in which the players are smuggling illegal candy. Rolling the die, you want to elevate the price of your candy in order to win, but if the others find out what you're smuggling, you're arrested.

The game ends when one candy reaches the top price, at which point every one gets to accuse one other player for what they smuggle. Arrested players are out of the game. The winner is the remaining player with the highest priced candy.

Grizzled: At Your Orders!

At Your Orders! is an expansion for The Grizzled that consists of three elements:

  • Rules for solitaire play.
  • New rules for playing with two players.
  • Mission cards that present players with new challenges that scale in difficulty based on their experience.

On this last topic, mission cards come in easy, normal and hard difficulty levels, and based on the experience of the players, you set up a deck of missions.

Each round, the mission leader draws two of these cards, then decides which one to attempt. These missions might affect the number of starting cards in a round or allow players not to lose a round due to a specific condition, such as night or rain.
