Game ON! Travel Coin Set
Enhance you gaming with a versatile, portable coin set that that can be used for almost any game. The 10 colorful coin denominations are very convenient to use, especially for making change but also for lives, game stats or other markers. The coins are light, easy to hold and are two sided so they can be in an activated/unactivated state. They come in a durable zipper case that won't pop open unexpectedly to spill your coins everywhere with extra storage for dice, cards or game bits. Why settle for substandard game bits, bulky poker chips or a bowling ball's weight of metal? Enhance your game with the Game ON! Travel Coin Set - and Game ON!

Periodic: A Game of The Elements
Periodic: A Game of The Elements is a game designed around the periodic table of elements, in which movement optimization and resource management are critical. In Periodic, you activate periodic trends to maneuver across the periodic table, “discovering” elements to score points. You must also couple “discovering” elements with ending your turns in specific families of elements, like Noble Gases or Transition Metals, which allows you to move up the Academic Achievement Track in a race against other players for limited end-track points. Periodic has been vetted by gamers and verified by scientists - credible science, incredible fun!

Precision Milled Metal 60-Sided D20 and Full Set of RPG Dice


60 sides, but numbered to use as regular dice! D20, D12, D10, D00, D8, D6 & D4 available.

Our patent pending dice are some of the most accurate in the world. We individually machine a solid billet of aircraft grade aluminum to within tolerances of +-0.0004” and finish with a type III hard anodize. Numbers are permanently marked with a laser, leaving the faces flat and the weight balanced.

At about 1.5” wide, (37mm) these dice are huge and heavy (77g or 0.17lbs). They are easy to tell apart since we highlighted each of the high numbers in a bright hexagon.

Fully funded in less than 7 hours. One day left. Ends tomorrow at noon PST!

Blackstone Castle
Intrigue, manipulation, power. In Blackstone Castle you manipulate cards on a grid made of the letters in BLACK STONE. It’s like a giant slide puzzle in which you slide, swap and flip 2-sided Vassal cards to make them meet the requirements on task cards.

You start the game with one wizard and one knight in your party. On each turn they allow you to manipulate the Vassals on the grid to increase your work force, your influence at court and your victory points.

Game end is triggered when someone reaches 21 points. Finish the round and whoever has the most points wins.

Blackstone Castle: 1-4 players ages 14 and up, 50 – 80 minutes.
