  New Game!
Charterstone
Stonemaier Games


Charterstone is a competitive legacy game for 1 to 6 players.

Description from Stonemeier
You construct buildings and inhabit a shared village.  Building stickers are removed from cards and permanently added to your charter on the board, becoming action spaces for any player to use. Thus, a few available buildings soon grow into a bustling village with dozens of actions.

  • engine-building elements within each game and over the course of the campaign

  • a secret component found in only one other board game
  • 75+ “crates” to unlock: 36 metal coins, 350+ unique cards, and 230+ wooden tokens 
Your journey through Charterstone’s many secrets will last 12 games, but it doesn’t end there. Your completed village will be a one-of-a-kind, variable worker-placement game.

  New Game!
Epic Spell Wars 3
Melee At Murdershroom Marsh
Cryptozoic
Epic Spell Wars is back with Melee at Murdershroom Marsh! Fully compatible with the previous releases, or played standalone, this latest set has all new mayhem and explosions to scratch that spell-building itch. Features two new keywords: Cantrip and Bad Trip. Cantrips are spells that can be played out of your hand at the cost of discarding other cards. Great for when you hand is jammed with too many cards of one type. Bad Trip is all about the colors, man. If your spell contains three or more different glyphs, a Bad Trip card resolves twice! You can get that pretty easily as half of the Delivery Spells are Dual Glyphed. Boom! See, explosions. The other half of the Deliveries are Creatures. Yes, they are back!
