Noises at Night
A pleasant night of mystery and deduction. Up to four detectives will face off to collect points while protecting their own secret identity. In this new competitive deduction game, placing down clues in different rooms will land you victory points at the end of the game. Other players don't know who you are, so the clues you place could score for anybody at the end of the game. Play how you want, but place too many clues related to your identity and others will be hot on your trail. Not only will solving an identity get bonus points, it could ruin your entire plan. Fun for all, compact, and difficult to master.
Check out the Project...


UBOOT
One of the most innovative board games of the last few years, UBOOT is an app-driven, fully cooperative, real-time game of WW2 submarine simulation. It lets 1 to 4 players take on the roles of officers on board of a Type VIIC submarine, as seen in the iconic ‘Das Boot’. Feel the anxiety and excitement of torpedo attacks, experience the claustrophobia of the Iron coffin and immerse in this game’s incredibly rich and RPG-ish gameplay. Received with rave reviews and great community feedback, UBOOT might be the next big thing in thematic gaming and the first-ever realistic simulator on your tabletop. Don’t miss the opportunity and pledge now!

Fog of Love
We are extremely excited for Fog of Love.

Fog of Love is essentially a relationship simulator for two players. You play a fictional couple and try to make their rollercoaster relationship work.

As you play you’re trying to figure out what your fictional partner wants. You may be sincere, understood, and aligned - or you may not. Whatever happens, you’ll end with a fun - or dramatic - love story.

Fog of Love is just released in the US and Europe (and soon in Canada and Australia). The game is getting stellar reviews and is possibly Game of the Year for Shut Up & Sit Down.
