Board Game Publisher: Ad Magic, Inc.
PAX East 2014 was a fantastic event, bringing together gamers and games from around the world. One of the biggest showings this year was the AdMagic booth, AdMagic being a printing company that got its footing in board games with Cards Against Humanity and has now extended its printing services to other Kickstarter and self-published projects.

I was confused going into the show as to whether AdMagic was a publisher or printer. Owner Shari Spiro set me straight and explained the printer's plans for getting into the boardgame space.

Board Game: What the Food?!
What the Food?!

In the food fight card game What the Food?!, you are battling to be the one with the least food on you at game's end.

A Terrible Time

In the (absolutely for adults) party game A Terrible Time: The Party Game Where Everyone Loses, everyone loses (as promised). The game is a mash-up of several classic party game mechanisms with terrible things on each card. Watch your back, Cards Against Humanity.

Board Game: The Game of 49
The Game of 49

In The Game of 49, you are trying to win auctions to claim spots on a 49-square grid board. Each space you take earns money for both you and your opponents, so you need to be careful with each move.

Havoc Boards

Did you ever want to play Risk on a map of your hometown? Havoc Baords lets you do this, with several printed boards on hand and the ability to make you a custom wood board of almost any location.

Board Game: Slash: Romance without boundaries
Slash: Romance without boundaries

Who is Frodo's perfect match? Would Darth Vader and Wonder Woman work out? You can answer these questions in Slash: Romance without boundaries, an Apples to Apples-inspired game that has you matching up fictional and pop culture characters to find their perfect match.

Jack Attack

The trick-taking card game Jack Attack hopes to capture what we love about existing trick-taking games while adding some new twists. Could it be a new classic?

Board Game: ApocalypZe Card Game

The card game Apocalypze is all about surviving the zombie apocalypse. You have limited resources and must preserve them while attempting to make your opponents lose their resources.
