How to play (narrated by Wil Wheaton): https://vimeo.com/179938217

Back yet again!

Secret Hitler is a dramatic game of political intrigue and betrayal set in 1930s Germany. Each player is randomly and secretly assigned to be a liberal or a fascist, and one player is Secret Hitler. The fascists coordinate to sow distrust and install their cold-blooded leader; the liberals must find and stop the Secret Hitler before it's too late. The liberal team always has a majority.

At the beginning of the game, players close their eyes, and the fascists reveal themselves to one another. Secret Hitler keeps his eyes closed, but puts his thumb up so the fascists can see who he is. The fascists learn who Hitler is, but Hitler doesn't know who his fellow fascists are, and the liberals don't know who anyone is.

Each round, players elect a President and a Chancellor who will work together to enact a law from a random deck. If the government passes a fascist law, players must try to figure out if they were betrayed or simply unlucky. Secret Hitler also features government powers that come into play as fascism advances. The fascists will use those powers to create chaos unless liberals can pull the nation back from the brink of war.

The objective of the liberal team is to pass five liberal policies or assassinate Secret Hitler. The objective of the fascist team is to pass six fascist policies or elect Secret Hitler chancellor after three fascist policies have passed.

Pathfinder RPG: Pathfinder Society0 of 60 of 1

The Pathfinder Society has discovered the location of a powerful Osirian artifact secreted beneath the sands, but they are not the only ones who seek its power. The Pathfinders must endure the scalding Osirian desert, brave its inhabitants, and watch for hidden dangers if they are to survive. Can the PCs reach the ruins before their rivals claim the prize?

“Race to Seeker’s Folly” is the second scenario in the three-part Destiny of the Sands campaign arc. It follows Pathfinder Society Scenario #5-12: "A Bitter Bargain" and is followed by Pathfinder Society Scenario #5-16: "Sanctum of the Sages." All three chapters are intended to be played in order.

Content in “Race to Seeker’s Folly” also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the Osirion faction.

Pathfinder RPG: Pathfinder Society0 of 60 of 1

This scenario is due to be released on Wednesday, 27th September, 2017.

The Thuvian city of Merab has grown steadily over the past decade, and construction teams have uncovered numerous foundations and features dating back to Ancient Osirion and the Tekritanin League as they break ground for new buildings. Recently, workers accidentally unsealed a haunted ruin, out of which screamed a terrifying apparition. The Society has sent the PCs to investigate, not only to learn about the newly discovered ruin, but also to put this angry spirit to rest. In the process, the Pathfinders will uncover more than part of Thuvia's past; they'll unravel a dire secret that even now threatens one of the Society's closest allies.

Contents in "The Unseen Inclusion” also contribute directly to the ongoing storyline of the Scarab Sages faction.

This scenario is due to be released on Wednesday, 25th October, 2017.

For millennia an order of scholars known as the Jeweled Sages catalogued the wisdom and lore of northern Garund's greatest minds within crystalline artifacts. Though these sage jewels have recently resurfaced, so too has the new generation of sages learned that something else dwells within besides ancient memories. The entire order gathers where the Jeweled Sages truly began in order to confront their hidden past, purge an ancient evil that has haunted them for ages, and define the future of the Scarab Sages faction.

Contents in "Salvation of the Sages” also contribute directly to the ongoing storyline of the Scarab Sages faction.

Description:
***This adventure was written by David ""Oderus Urungus"" Brockie, lead vocalist of the band GWAR. It was one of his last creative works, before his tragic death in 2014.***

For centuries the province of Hune has been governed by the famously wealthy family it was named after. The mighty ""Towers Two"" have stood for centuries as a symbol of stability and prosperity over a world that seems to be increasingly slipping into chaos. But ever since the difficult birth of the initially identical twin brothers Razak and Zal, a shadow has fallen over the family and the land they had ruled for centuries. The brothers quarreled over the power they had inherited from their father (who was rumored to have been murdered), squandered his wealth, and sent the line into decay. The nearby village of Mlag, once happy to call Towers Two and the Family Hune their protectors, now live in fear of the fortress and it's inhabitants.

In Mutant: Year Zero - Genlab Alpha; you will be playing as genetic research animals who have become bipedal and can speak (such animals include dogs. cats, rats, bears, apes, rabbits, badger, reptile and moose).

For generations, the animal mutants lived in fear and awe of the Watchers, humankind’s representatives on Earth. Occasional attempts to escape Paradise Valley and to avoid abductions occurred from time to time, but were crushed brutally and did not spread among the tribes. In the last few years, something has changed. A secret network of animals with dreams of resistance has been forming slowly in Paradise Valley. The center of this network – unknown even to most of its members – is Truffaut13, Elder of the Bear Tribe.

A few years back, Truffaut had an experience that came to change his life forever. Like most other bears he was a loner. He roamed Paradise Valley, through the forests and across the moors. One day he saw something astonishing. Outside the Outer Fence, on a mountainside, a group of bipedal creatures walked. They walked upright and wore clothes, but they had no fur. Truffaut recognized them from the yellowing images he had seen in the Lodge.
Humans. Some of them were strangely deformed, but no matter. The Humans were back. Now it is your job to find a way out of paradise

"Give me the child. Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen, for my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom as great."

Jim Henson's Labyrinth: The Board Game is a beautiful exploration of the movie for 1-5 players in which Sarah, Ludo, Sir Didymus and Hoggle must adventure through the labyrinth and make their way to the goblin city to save Toby from Jareth, the goblin king!

The board is very simplistic, beautifully illustrated and dominated by the titular Labyrinth. This is the maze that players must navigate every time they wish to save Sarah’s baby brother. Each game is different with the blank card spaces being filled with the magical encounters and monsters that are depicted on the deck of cards that comes with the game, this ensures a great deal of replayability and unpredictability in the game, giving the Labyrinth its signature feel.

The game consists of two distinct stages, one in which the group must adventure through the labyrinth trying to find the goblin city whilst keeping their willpower as high as possible (nobody wants to fall into the oubliette!), and a second stage in which the players must fight their way into Jareth's castle where Sarah must say the magical words that will release her brother.

The most aptly named game ever! In this exceptionally silly and awesome game, your objective is to win! Simple enough.

Sadly, all of your opponents have the same simple goal, and they're trying to make you lose.
Between Rock Paper Scissors battles, being eaten by a random Dragon, or saved by a Kitten Ambush, there are many hazards to avoid.

Games last between 30 seconds and 5 minutes(if you play slow!), and specifically engineered to fit in maximum fun. Any number can play, though we recommend between 2 and 15. Rumors of 20 person games swirl around the Internet...

Everyone starts with 2 cards. On your turn, draw one card from the deck, and then play one from your hand following the instructions on the card. There are many hazards to avoid, including: bombs, dragons, arrows, laser pointers, black holes, Rock Paper Scissors battles, number battles, zombies, etc. Luckily items abound that can save you, too: spaceships, science, shields, dinosaurs and a kitten ambush!

Welcome to Paranoia: The Mandatory Card Game. A light hearted death-fest for 3-8 players set in the multi-award winning world of Paranoia.

But, you say, you’ve never played Paranoia. Don’t worry, Citizen, this DNCPCG (definitely not collectible paranoia card game) is the perfect primer to the delightfully lethal world of Alpha Complex. Created by Steve Gilbert, co-author of Me and My Shadow Mark IV, Paranoia: The Mandatory Card Game will have you nuking your buddies before you can say, “The Computer is my friend.”

So how do you play? Excellent question, Citizen!

You and the other players are elite Troubleshooter agents for The Computer, trained to root out traitors, mutants and enemy agents. Your friend, The Computer, is going to send your Troubleshooter team on a series of happy fun missions critical to the survival of Alpha Complex (aren’t they all). Your greatest fear is that Friend Computer will find out you are one of its enemies. So strap on your laser, and your hand flamer, and your plasma-cannon, and venture forth to rid Alpha Complex of the mutinous, but equally well-armed traitors surrounding you.

We walked among the gaping ruins and rusty car wrecks, monuments to the fall of the Ancients. Naphta had been taken by a Deathworm and the Rot had driven Hugust insane. We had no grub left and there was only rotwater to drink. But we had to keep going. We had to find Eden. We could not return to the Ark empty-handed, the fate of the People rested on our shoulders. Suddenly, Franton, the insect-like Stalker leading our way through the wasteland, stopped. “Zone-Ghouls”, he hissed, drawing his scrap rifle. I inhaled, ready to spew out a cascade of flames at anyone who dared come close. In the next instant, a chilling shriek rose from the ruins around us.

Mutant: Year Zero takes you to the world after the great Apocalypse. Humanity’s proud civilization has fallen. The cities are dead wastelands, winds sweeping along empty streets turned into graveyards. But life remains. Among the ruins, the People live. You are the heirs of humanity – but not quite human anymore. Your bodies and minds are capable of superhuman feats. You are mutants.

Its a nice sunshiny type day which rare in the Ark, which is your home. The water supply has been compromised and, on top of that, somebody is in cahoots with the Hell Drivers, to break down the defenses. Your party must find a source of clean water and negotiate for a constant supply.

Description:
It was the age of gods and goddess. Zeus (King of the Gods), Poseidon (Lord of the Seas), and Hades (God of the Underworld) had agreed to separate the sky, the ocean, and the underworld. Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom, would take over the rest of the earth. But the Norse gods were displeased by the decision. They called warriors and disciples to take the world from the Greek gods. The gods atop Mt. Olympus also called their warriors to defend them. During this war of the gods, a mass of warriors died, and their souls were sealed in a jar.

And now they are waiting for you to release them.

Memoir '44 is a historical boardgame where players face-off in stylized battles of some of the most famous historic battles of World War II including Omaha Beach, Pegasus Bridge, Operation Cobra and the Ardennes.

"By design, the game is not overly complex", says Memoir '44 designer, Richard Borg. "The game mechanics, although simple, still require strategic card play, timely dice rolling and an aggressive yet flexible battle plan to achieve victory."

Memoir '44 is designed for 2 players but easily accommodates team play. And with Memoir '44 Overlord scenarios, players can use multiple boards and up to 8 players to conduct large scale operations, experiencing the challenges of troop coordination and military chain of command on a large scale battlefield.

Welcome to the Fantastic 19th Century! Under the sky crowded with airships, steam-powered cars race the streets.

Game System: Dead of Winter
Game Type: Board
Beginner Friendly: Yes
Age Category: Everyone 13+
Description:
Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological survival game. This means the players are working together toward one common victory condition--but for each individual player to achieve victory, they must also complete their personal secret objective. This secret objective could relate to a psychological tick that's fairly harmless to most others in the colony, a dangerous obsession that could put the main objective at risk, a desire for sabotage of the main mission, or worst of all: vengeance against the colony! Certain games could end with all players winning, some winning and some losing, or all players losing. Work toward the group's goal but don't get walked all over by a loudmouth who's only looking out for their own interests!

Team up and battle your friends in the new expansion, Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies! In the Warring Colonies variant, unique main objectives set two colonies against each other as they battle for territory with a new fighting system that includes tactics cards, bullet tokens, and 12-sided combat dice. New and terrible joint-colony crisis cards force cooperation and coercion every round. And the odd-man-out Lone Wolf adds chaotic balance as she pursues her own secret goals while keeping both colonies in check.
