Samurai Spirit

In this co-operative fighting game designed by Antoine Bauza, players are helping to defend the village from bandits.  Each player will have a samurai game board with a special ability, hit points, and village zones.  On a turn a player draws a card and chooses to let the bandit pass, defend the village, or fight the bandit.  Taking any of the latter two options places the card next to the player's game board filling up the slot and maybe, causing some havoc.  Samurai Spirit is for 1 to 7 players, ages 10 and up and a play time of 30 minutes.

Kingsport Festival

Designed by Andrea Chiarvesio and Gianluca Santopietro, this game is set in H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu world where players are trying to invoke the horrors onto the world.  Dice are rolled and players use one or more of the dice to summon an Elder God that matches the value of that God.  Then, the invoked Gods will reward those Cultists, which might involve a loss of Sanity.  The final step in each round is to spread the Chaos.  Players can place a disk on a building connected to where they already have markers.  After twelve rounds, the Cultists compare their deeds and determine who gets promoted.  Kingsport Festival is for 3 to 5 players, ages 12 and up and a play time of 90 minutes.


Provincia Romana

In this card game designed by Pierluigi Frumusa, players are leaders of a Roman city vying for glory.  As the governor, players manage the economy, resources, and defenses as well as preparing for Gallic raids and agreements with the Senate.  Provincia Romana is for 2 to 6 players, ages 13 and up and has a play time of 90 minutes.
