Dragon’s Interest
It is time for your war ravaged kingdoms to rebuild, but all of your treasuries lay barren. In order to get the gold you need, you will have to turn to the wealthiest - and most dangerous! - individual you know...

The Dragon!

In Jesse Li's Dragon's Interest, you will be the leader of one of these kingdoms, and it will be up to you to outbid, out maneuver, and out play your opponents to reign supreme. You will borrow gold from the draconian loan shark on the mountain to finance your improvements, but if you can't pay her back, she will take out her anger on you and your kingdom, laying waste to all you hold dear!
Check out the Game...


Dice Upon Time
Dice Upon a Time is a family adventure game which takes you to the fabulous world of the Grimm brothers. You will play the popular Grimm heroes with unique abilities, while completing quests for Adventure Points.
The game's innovative movement mechanism is based on a set of special dice. You place the dice on the board tactically, often on top of each other, to get ahead of your opponents or even block their way. You could place your lowest value dice in the corners of game board, and will employ Magical Items and draw exciting Story cards.
The rules are simple, yet there's enough depth for more experienced players so it's really fun for all.

Valley of the Kings was one of the early innovators in the deck-building genre, featuring an “entomb” mechanic that forced players to give up cards for points at the end of the game. This creates a tension between how long you can use powerful cards, versus when they are better used as points. Valley of the Kings Premium also introduces Pharaoh cards, giving players their own unique abilities.

Corsairs of Valeria
You are playing a corsair captain in this push your luck dice game. Roll the dice to see what your actions will be. Coins earn you silver, Grog let's you re-roll dice, Cannons let you attack merchant ships or opponents to take their silver, and Maps move your ship forward. Watch out for the Curses though, because each one you roll means a silver coin lost to Skull Island. Who will use their unique Captain card the best and become the next Commodore of the corsair fleet?

High Rise
High Rise is a city-building game with a bit of corruption, from the designer of The Networks, Wordsy, and Bad Medicine. You'll move along a one-way time track to gather material to construct your buildings. You can boost many of these actions by taking corruption. But of course, if you take too much corruption, you'll be hit with penalties.

A variable setup at the start of each game guarantees lots of variability and replayability. As the game progresses, the city's skyline emerges through lovely vertical cardboard pieces, featuring illustrations by Kwanchai Moriya and graphic design by Heiko Günther.
