  New Game!
First Class
The Orient Express
Z-Man Games
From Z-Man Games is First Class, an Orient Express inspired card game for 2 to 4 players.

From Z-Man Games:
The Orient Express: the name alone evokes the wonder and luxury of a first-class journey along a scenic European landscape. But if the Orient Express was yours, what would such a venture imply?
For this project to be successful, you will need a well-connected route, luxuriously outfitted railroad cars, and many passengers (including a celebrity or two). Choose your cards carefully to outplay your opponents, and your first class enterprise will truly be... First Class.

Cards represent each train car and provide a visual representation of the growth of your empire as they extend away from your player board. Each car has a point value that can potentially add to your score, so adding and upgrading train cars is key to victory.

Space Cowboys

New from Space Cowboys is Unlock! Escape Adventures, a cooperative card game inspired by escape rooms. Initially, they've introduced 3 separate stand alone adventures. Using a free app, players are given a 60-minute time limit, clues, and code checks.

On the cards that you reveal from your deck, you’ll find items scattered around the room and machines that must be strategically manipulated. Ultimately, by logically combining red and blue cards (such as a key and a locked cabinet) and by solving challenging puzzles, you’ll be able to gain new cards from the deck and advance closer to your solution.

 Back In Stock!
Akrotiri
Z-Man Games
After being missing in action for a time, Akrotiri is now back in stock.  Akrotiri is a 2-player game aimed at those who appreciate a deeper strategy game.  A tile placement, hand management, and pick-up and delivery game.

Players place land tiles to the central game board in order to make it match the maps they have in their hand. On the various islands surrounding Thera, players will gather resources and ship them back to Thera to sell in order to funds voyages in search of temples. Players earn points by excavating the bigger harder to find temples. Both players also have secret goal cards that aren't revealed until the end of the game.
