Board Game: Why You Lying!


Overview
Why You Lying! is a party game based on the classic Liar's Dice gameplay with some hilarious twists: legs and wings!
Each player has a deck of 30 Animal cards consisting of 5 each of Cricket, Spider, Fish, Chicken, Rabbit, and the almighty Mascot Worker!

Players shuffle their deck and draw 5 hand cards at the beginning of each round. The start player will announce whether they will play with legs or wings in the current round by saying "I bet there are X (number of) Y (animals) with Z (amount of) legs (or wings) among all animals in all players' hand cards."
And players take turns to raise the bet by increasing X, Y (animals' hierarchy), or Z, OR they can call the previous player BLUFF!

Play smart with the information in your hand, and play cunning when you raise the bet. But beware, don't let the Mascot Workers fool you!

Components
Animal cards x 120 (30 per player)

Board Game: Monster Busters


Story
Furious monsters are storming the kingdom. The calling for the braveness assembles a team of fearless adventurers, and you are one of them! However, some of the monsters seem to be… well, too furious to be handled properly (without killing you!). Should you fight at all costs? Or should you strategically retreat to survive a bit longer?

Game Overview
In Monster Busters, you and your fellow adventurers try to defeat the monsters as a team. In each round, each player must play one card from their hand to fight or retreat (or use a tricky Item!). If your collective attack is strong enough, you can defeat the monster and gain valuable Items and victory points. But, if the battle is lost, you will be buried with just a little sympathy (VP).
So, the adventurer’s dilemma is: Should I fight bravely for glory at the risk of dying, or cower at the right time to live longer to enjoy the even sweeter triumph (more VP!) at the end of the game?

Components
Game board x1
Action cards x16 (2 per player: Fight / Retreat)

Location cards x 15
Item cards x 49

Board Game: The Three Little Wolves


Story
Centuries after the famous story, the Swine family has learned a precious lesson, and become the greatest landlord in the world (They love houses!). The Wolf family, however, becomes the best architects of all time (They hate lousy houses!). The three little wolves now work for the Big Bad Pig to build all kinds of houses. Can you help the wolves build the highest house and find the best home for them?

Three Little Wolves is a family game where each player needs to build three houses by playing cards from small to big numbers. The higher you build, the better chance you can score points. But your fellow players might send their little wolves to live in your nice house for big points! Plans, disguise, and a pinch of luck in your hand are all you need to win the game!

Game Overview
In this game, players take turns to play one card from hand to build houses (Blue, Green, and Red) in front of themselves and refill their hand to 4 cards. If the Big Bad Pig (BBP) is revealed, it will reward the tallest house at that moment. But if you can't keep the rewarded house tall enough at the end of the game, you will get punished.
If you don't want to play a card, you can also discard a card and send one of your 3 wolves to live in other players' houses for a chance to score points!
The third time when BBP rewards the tallest house will also trigger the end of the game. All players will compare the height of their buildings, and the shortest of each color will be knocked down by BBP! Whoever scores the most points wins!

Components
Floor cards x56 (14 each in 4 player colors)
Big Bad Pig cards x3
Wolf tokens x12 (3 each in 4 player colors)
Big Bad Pig tokens x3
Tallest House tokens x3
Mustache token x1 (For 2-player games)

==== About the Original ====

Cat Sudoku is a roll-and-write sudoku game for 1 to 6 players. In the game, players take turns to roll four dice and all players simultaneously write the numbers on their sudoku puzzle papers. Similar to traditional Sudoku, players should avoid putting the same number into the same row or column in their puzzle, or they will get minus points! But there's more! Pay attention to the diagonal spaces to stay out of the troubles! The game ends when players fill in all the spaces in the puzzle. The player with the highest points wins the game.

Cat Sudoku comes with 4 different Sudoku puzzles (themed with 4 seasons of Kyoto) at 3 different difficulty levels so that you can enjoy the game with a variety of gaming groups.ヾ(*ΦωΦ)ツ
