February 7 – Oceans

The foundation of the oceanic food chain are billions of one-celled organisms that capture the sun’s energy through photosynthesis. Every other oceanic species is a predator, each bigger than the next, all the way up to the dreaded apex predator. And even bigger than apex predators are enormous filter feeders that gently swim through the ocean scooping up everything in their path with their baleen.

The foundation of Oceans is a simple turn structure and a deck of 12 traits, making it easy to learn all of the cards and wade effortlessly into the first game. Additionally, there are 2 randomly chosen scenario cards that activate (and sometimes deactivate) at various points in the game.

This foundation loosely mimics a scientific oceanic ecosystem.

Oceans also includes something which will break the seams of the scientific reality you’ve come to accept: The Deep. The Deep is a deck of 75 unique power cards that require an additional cost to play. These power cards range from things you might discover in nature to the fantastical Kraken or Leviathan.

Oceans is an engine builder where the world of science is disrupted at the seams by scientific phenomena too outlandish to be believed. Players must adapt to the changing environment with an interconnected ecosystem that can survive the march of time, and the natural struggle of predators seeking to survive.

February 14 – Games for Two!

This Friday will be a little different. Instead of one game we’ll be teaching a bunch! Tonight’s games will all be two player games. Patchwork, Mandala, Blossoms….perfect for Valentine’s Day! Come try a bunch of different games of all types.

February 21 – Runes and Regulations

Runes & Regulations is a 2-4 player strategic card game that combines the aggressiveness of a horde of dragons with the passive-aggressiveness of a suburban unicorn.

Immerse yourself in this world of magic and the mundane by summoning mythical pets and casting powerful spells, all within the comfort of your own home.

Goal: Collect 5 Mythical Creatures on your lawn to win.

To do this, you will draw cards from the main deck and add them to your hand. Then use the cards to:

  • Cast Powerful Spells
  • Summon Fantastical Creatures
  • Activate Enchanted Runes
  • Follow HOA Regulations

You can hex a neighbors creatures, destroy them or even steal them away.

Engines purring, goggles down—the seaplane is set for take-off! Welcome to the whimsical world of Wayfinders, where intrepid explorers race to chart new paths through the skies.

Wheels up—adventure awaits!
