THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT!!
SEE YOU IN ESSEN!!


FINAL CALL FOR PRE-ORDERS!

Dear gamers and geeks, thank you all so much for the support along the way! The PRE-ORDERs have kept coming in on each day during the past month, and almost reached our "safety level" reserved for passer-by customers in the fair. Since we will be leaving for (Oktoberfest in Munich and then) Essen this Thursday, we plan to CLOSE THE PRE-ORDER on THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1th, NOON, Taipei time (GMT+8). If you are still pondering on pre-ordering any of our games, or incline to adding some more stuff into your previous order, this is the final chance to secure your copies with DISCOUNTED PRICE! (The same deadline also applies for shipping orders.)

Furthermore, due to frequent requests from our fellow geeks, we decide to make some more T-shirts and carry them to Essen. If you would like to get one of them, PLEASE e-mail us (or reply my previous email) with your desired style, size, and amount. We can only carry very limited number of T-shirts and bags in our suitcase, so your kind help will be greatly appreciated!
We are super excited about this coming festival (both Spiel and Oktoberfest ). Can't wait to meet you in Essen!

One exhibitor ticket (you can come in at 9am!)
One TBD volunteer T-shirt! (thank you!)
Free drinks (water and soda)
Free snacks (surprise from German supermarket...)

Short description:
Based on the textbook example of financial scams, "Ponzi Scheme" is the term used to describe the technique Charles Ponzi employed in 1919, to operate one of the most notorious financial fraud in history. In Ponzi Scheme, players are scammers trying to trick investors into funding fraudulent investments with the promise of extremely high returns. You will need to elaborate trading skills to keep your operation afloat as long as possible, and as time goes on the dividends you need to pay every turn will only pile higher and higher! But when someone declares bankruptcy, the remaining fraudster who forged the biggest shell corporation wins the game!

Short description:
Once upon a time, when Shadow Lord, the evil one, swept across the land, the legendary Dragon Lord gathered the heroes, and eventually defeated the Shadow Lord. The Dragon Lord, however, was seriously injured, and died at last, transformed into Runes, which are sealed with the shadows deep inside the temple. Now, the temple are long wasted, and the power of the enchantment are weakening, so weak that the power of shadows are leaking. The descendants of the heroes gather, march into the ruin to find the runes and seal the shadows again. But the shadow's followers have infiltrated into the group...

Runes and Ruin is a fantasy partnership game designed for 4 to 6 players, with various characters of different abilities, and numerous artifacts that are the key to success. Players advance their team to winning by exploring the ruin and attacking others. The heroes must find all Runes before the seal fails. The shadow follower must sabotage the heroes plan. Depending on the number of players and the stage of the game, there would be 1 to 3 followers hidden among the players, just as truths are always hidden underneath lies...

Short description: Microbadge: Jungle Rumble fan
In Jungle Rumble, you're in charge of a herd of cats — yes, cats — and those cats must follow your orders to mine gold, build plantations, water your farm, and recruit more helpful kittens.

On a turn, a player chooses one of the five available action tiles, placing as many of her cats on it as she wants, with more cats leading to a stronger action. Each other player in turn can take the same action, but only at a strength of one cat. After each player has a chance to choose an action tile, the unchosen tiles are sweetened with one food token, and the start player marker rotates, then the next round starts.

Players need to grow their herd of cats in order to take additional actions, but you must also feed your cats or they will wander off into the forest. At the end of the game, players score for their feline herd, waterway supplying their fields, remaining food and gold. Whoever has the most points becomes the champion of this vivid forest!

In the middle of the night, the hungry wolf and fox sneak into the farm to have a big meal. The watchful rooster senses the danger and cries out, “Run, for your life!”
In this dark dark night, all the farm animals can’t tell where the danger lies; they can only judge from the crying of the others. Oh, poor farm animals! Can they save their own lives tonight?

Animals Frightening Night is a hidden identity party game in which players try to find out where the Wolf is (Farm or Forest) to keep themselves alive, while the Wolf and Fox players need to work together to fool the farm animals so that they can enjoy their feast. In each round, players will draw an secret identity card and play through the following phases:
1. Rooster Phase
2. Night Phase
3. Escape Phase
4. Voting Phase
5. Morning Phase
When the day comes, Farm Animal players staying with the Wolf will be eaten
and granting VP to the Wolf player. On the other hand, the surviving players will also score VP. So, bluff, lie, threaten, or use your special ability to make your way through the frightening night!

Joraku is a word meaning "To Kyoto" in ancient Japanese. Specifically, during the Sengoku period, Joraku refers to the act of local warlords–the Daimyo marching their armies toward Kyoto, to demand recognition from the Shogunate administration and the Imperial Court.
So onward to Kyoto! Take command of your army, and defeat every Daimyo standing in your way! March on! To victory! March on! Kachidoki!

PRE-ORDER of €50 or more will win you a free copy of Falling Coin! A microgame that hooks you up with one coin!

Short description:
Falling Coin is an engaging and challenging microgame with only 13 cards. Player need to provide one coin to play this game, and the goal is to NOT let the coin fall off the cards.
Randomly choose a starting player, who places the coin on the center of the starting card and holds the card with two fingers (thumb and index). Going clockwise, the next player draws a card from the deck and uses the card to "take over" the card stack from the previous player. (In essence, you use this new card to carry the existing bunch of cards as well as the coin!)
Sounds easy? The challenging part is that you must use the matching color of your card to touch the card stack, and the parachute icon in the center of your card must still be visible! Play continues until someone cannot keep the cards balanced, thereby dropping the coin off the cards. That player loses the game of Falling Coin.
The game can be played in a number of rounds, and the player who loses the fewest times is declared the winner!
