ALIENS: Bug Hunt
"They mostly come at night. . . mostly"
—Newt

One thing is for sure, they are coming, and they’ll keep coming.
Complete the mission and evacuate the complex, because the Xenomorphs converging from every direction are heartless, smart, relentless and hungry. Every role is critical as players rely on each other to make it out alive. Private Hudson might ask if this is a standup fight or just another bug hunt; but the real question is

“Who’s hunting who?”

Introducing...ALIENS: Bug Hunt, an all-new cooperative die-rolling combat card game for one to four players that let's you play as your favorite ALIENS movie characters.

Frostpunk: The Board Game
In Frostpunk: The Board Game, 1-4 players are placed in charge of what could be the last city on Earth. The events take place in a post-apocalyptic, Steampunk world that was hit by a severe ice age. Players must effectively manage both the infrastructure of their settlement and its citizens. The core gameplay is brutal and challenging with morally complex choices but in an easy to learn scenario-based formula.
The game is designed by Adam Kwapiński (the author of Nemesis) with a story written by Jakub Wiśniewski (co-author of This War of Mine: The Board Game). Join us on Kickstarter… like now, seriously! We’d love to have you on board! ?

Wildermyth
Wildermyth, which is currently in Steam Early Access and has earned an “Overwhelmingly Positive” rating from players, is a character-driven, procedurally-generated tactical RPG that empowers the player to tell a whimsical story of beauty, magic, and strife reminiscent of tabletop roleplaying game. Though its soundtrack is in nearly complete form, composer Candy Emberley is hosting a Kickstarter campaign for additional funds to allow her and the team to record with live instruments rather than samples. The campaign is aiming to raise $15,000 and is over 85% funded with one week remaining.

The Thing
The Thing is a game that mixes different mechanics to create an experience that is as faithful as possible to that of the original film. It is a ‘hidden role’ game, in which one player is initially the Thing and the others players are humans. The purpose of the Thing is to infect others, to prevent the survivors from escaping from the base (there are three different ways), and/or to try to escape with them by behaving as a human.

Arkwright the Card Game
Stefan Risthaus’s card implementation of his board game Arkwright is now live on Kickstarter. This game takes the complexity of the board game and translates it into a card game, without loosing any depth of play, with new art by artist Mehdi Merrouche. This game is not filler, rather it’s full game night fodder. Develop your factories, employ workers, build machines, ship your goods, and increase your stock value to win the game. Its small portable box, and shorter run time, make this game good for experienced Arkwright players, or as introduction to the Arkwright family of games (2-4 Players, 60-100 Min, 12+). So, don’t delay, back today!
