Product Description:

Scrimish Overview

Scrimish is a fast moving card game that pits player against player in an epic 10 minute battle of strategy, memory, and misdirection. Every game is different, and you'll want to play over and over again to try new ways of outsmarting your opponent.

The 2 pack comes with a Red/Blue pack (25 card Red deck + 25 card Blue deck) and a Purple/Green pack (25 card Purple deck + 25 card Green deck) for up to 4 players. Each pack contains 50 premium cards and instructions. You can expand to larger team games by using more decks.

Here's how it works
1.) The Objective of the game is to uncover and attack your opponent's Crown Card with one of your own cards.
2.) Each player places 5 piles of 5 cards face down in front of them. You can arrange the cards however you like and should place the crown card on the bottom of one of the piles.
3.) Players take turns attacking by selecting the top card from one of their piles and laying that card face up in front of one of their opponent's piles. The card with the lowest value (1-6) loses and is discarded.
4.) A player wins the game by uncovering the other player's crown card.

There are several other special cards to spice up the game. See official rules at www.Scrimish.com

  • Exploding Kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.
  • This is the most-backed project in Kickstarter history and all cards feature illustrations by The Oatmeal.
  • This box, like 99.99% of boxes, does not meow.
Product Description:
Exploding Kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats. In this highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette, players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten, at which point they explode, they are dead, and they are out of the game -- unless that player has a defuse card, which can defuse the Kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the Exploding Kittens. Exploding Kittens is the most-backed crowd funded project ever, the most-funded game in the history of Kickstarter, and has paved the way for peace and tranquility in the modern world.

  • 3-4 Players, 60 minute playing time
  • New graphics, board and cards
  • Winner of "Game of the Century" award
Product Description:

Your adventurous settlers seek to tame the remote but rich isle of Catan. Start by revealing Catan’s many harbors and regions: pastures, fields, mountains, hills, forests, and desert. The random mix creates a different board virtually every game.

 

     No two games are the same!

     Embark on a quest to settle the isle of Catan!

 

Guide your settlers to victory by clever trading and cunning development. Use resource combinations— grain, wool, ore, brick, and lumber—to buy handy development cards and build roads, settlements, and cities. Acquire your resources through trades, cards, or lucky dice (even outside your turn).

But beware! Someone might cut off your road or buy a monopoly. And you never know when the wily robber might steal some of your precious gains!

 

Catan (aka The Settlers of Catan) has been awarded with “Game of the Year,” “Hall of Fame,” and even “Game of the Century” honors in Germany, the United States, and a host of other countries worldwide. An international favorite, it’s been called the “Perfect Social Game.”

  • Collect 5 Nut Cards First to Win the Game - Draw from the deck, steal other players cards, hands and make them discard their cards. This game is strategic and fast paced to keep you on your toes.
  • Rated Ages 12+ For Mild Cartoon Violence - Playable by Ages 8-10+
  • Pick Up Your Copy Now for Highly Replayable Fun with Friends and Family
Product Description:
A Family Game for Kids and Adults

Squirrels is an easy card game to pick up and play with a variety of ages. The goal: collect 5 nut cards of the same color. However, to reach your goal you will have to combat other players stealing your cards and placing other road blocks in your way.

Attack Cards and Wild Cards Keep Things Interesting

While you try to collect your nut cards, your friends will play attack cards to steal and discard your cards. Wild cards in the deck make things even a bit more weird as you may end up trading hands with another player or if you're lucky you can end up with a card that counts as any color nut of your choice...

Not All Nuts Are Created Equally

The game features 4 color nuts cards: green, blue, orange and the dreaded nut of unmentionable color. Although there are an equal number of each nut in the deck, the nut of unmentionable color is said to be accursed to squirrels and it is much harder to collect to win than the other 3 colors.

Compact Size Makes it Easy to Pack Up and Travel

Squirrels comes in a compact box which makes it easy to pop in a pocket, purse or bag and take with you on the go. If you're headed out for vacation or on the road and want to play a game on a stop over lunch, squirrels is quick enough to make sure you're back on the road in time, but long enough to stretch the legs.

Rated Ages 12+ for Mild Cartoon Violence (complexity is playable by younger ages)

Product Description:
Codenames is a social word game with a simple premise and challenging game play. Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their codenames. The teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the table. Their teammates try to guess words of their color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin. The game works very well with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help. Or you can add more players if you prefer lively discussion. There is also a cooperative variant where a single team tries to achieve the highest score they can by playing against the game itself.

  • Collect sets of adventurer cards to earn dice
  • Choose your strategy carefully, the landscape of Dragonwood is ever-changing
  • 2 to 4 players
Product Description:
Dare to enter Dragonwood! Deep in the heart of this mythical forest lurk angry ogres, giggling goblins, and even the famed and fearsome fire-breathers themselves! Collect sets of adventurer cards to earn dice, which you will use to roll against your foes. Stomp on some fire ants, shriek at a grumpy troll, or strike the menacing orange dragon with a magical silver sword. Choose your strategy carefully because the landscape of Dragonwood is ever-changing. Only the bravest will overcome the odds to emerge victorious! It may be hard to imagine, but Dragonwood, with its vast array of richly illustrated cards, started out looking much different than where it ended. Inventor Darren Kisgen submitted a prototype without a single illustration - just simple words and numbers written in marker on blank white cards. Well apparently that's all was needed, because within moments, our play testers were enraptured with the simple-to-learn but deeply engaging fantasy-themed game. Illustrator Chris Beatrice beautifully captured the wit and humor depicted in Darren's words to create one of our most visually appealing games.
