Bring History into Your Home
To play and fully enjoy a war-game you need figurines representing the armies that you want to play with and props and scenery to build the battlefield.
WoFun Games have set out with a mission to "Bring History into Your Home", creating beautiful and immersive tabletop historical battles with hundreds of flat Plexiglas figurines.
Each WoFun Minis is designed down to the last detail, with careful attention paid to shadows to create a 3D perspective on the designs.
These are a really interesting, affordable alternative to miniatures, allowing you to create vast armies on the tabletop. Head over to the Kickstarter for further information.

The film also includes many other well-known designers that share many interesting stories and insights along the way.

We would love to have your support!

Funded in 9 hours with over 1,000 backers, Gardens of Babylon is a competitive euro-style strategy game game with tile laying, worker movement and a unique reversal of fortune mechanic: the cascade!

Shake Up
The Reverse Deck-building Office Card Game about the size of your coffee mug, costs just a little more and teaches in 5 minutes. The game approaches the deck-building genre from a rather unique angle. Instead of starting with a basic deck and slowly adding advanced cards, your deck starts right away with all the powerful cards. You need to remove cards and achieve a lean, efficient deck to draw from. Afterall, too many powerful cards in your deck is useless if they don't synergize well. Each game plays quickly, but expect hours and hours of fun trying out the different winning strategies. Free 100-micron custom sleeves come in every set!

Suburbia Collector’s Edition
Suburbia Collector’s Edition is LIVE on Kickstarter with new revamped artwork and a ton of upgrades! Oversized tiles, new player colors, and city-specific borough boards are only the beginning; this edition also features several Game Trayz™ organizers, a giant tower to disperse tiles, recessed borough boards, redesigned population board, unique landmarks for each player color, and all existing expansions as well as a brand new one: Nightlife. Kickstarter backers will receive even more upgrades at a discounted price! This project funded in just 7 minutes and has been the talk of the town, check it out today!

Fog of Love
Valentine’s Day is around the corner. What better game to play than Fog of Love?
Fog of Love is a surprise hit, being labelled the most innovative game in years by many reviewers.

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

Many have waited for the three expansions that were initially released for the Kickstarter backers:
- It Will Never Last
- Paranormal Romance
- Trouble with the In-Laws

We are delighted to announce that the expansions are finally available in retail, just in time for Valentine's Day.

Drinkill
Drinkill is an extreme board drinking game that will put your drinking capabilities to the test.
It will also probably make you do some REALLY stupid shit along the way.
Drinkill will take up to 10 players and make them battle for one simple objective - being the first to reach the end of the board. Once you get to the “Vomit Here” space, everyone else loses and the game is over. Sounds easy? Think again.
Drinkill will put the player to a bitter fight while using Items, Challenges, & STD cards, and will make every game a night you'll surely remember, and a day you'd rather forget!

QE
It's 2008, and the economy is falling apart. You can save it by PRINTING MONEY to bail out companies.

You'll bid for these companies against your fellow players.

Since you represent the central bank of one of the most powerful countries in the world, there is no limit to what you can bid. You will literally have a dry erase marker and can write ANY number you want.

Buy as many companies as you can to collect the most victory points.

BUT don't be the player who spent the most money total during the game. If you do that, you lose.

Will you bid 90, or 90 billion?

The Kickstarter ends TODAY. Just $34. Free US Shipping.

Experienced players love it for its speed and flexibility. It takes under an hour to learn the game, set up, and play your first mission, and it's just as simple to make your own adventures.
