Letters from WhitechapelLetters from Whitechapel is a crime and investigation game inspired by Jack The Ripper’s murders and the desperate attempts by Scotland Yard to stop his bloody killings. Night after night, the player who controls Jack commits a new murder and tries to reach his hideout, while the other players, in the role of detectives, try to track him down, collecting clues that can lead to his capture.

NightfallIn Nightfall, when darkness falls, terror rises! The sun has retreated from the earth. It has been a little over a week since the last hint of light shone over the horizon, and the chaos has begun. People fear for their existence, while scientists struggle to explain the phenomenon. Until they came.

The creatures of nightmare—vampires, werewolves, and ghouls—have begun to appear throughout the world, and they show no sign of hesitation in claiming the dark world as their own! Nightfall is a fast and furious deck-building game of supernatural horror from the makers of Legend of the Five Rings. Draft your cards wisely, chain your minions and actions, and conquer your opponents!

StrongholdStronghold is a 2-4 player game telling the story of a siege. Players take opposite sides, one has to defend the stronghold, the other has to break into the castle as soon as possible. As time passes, defenders get Victory Points every turn for their efforts on the walls.

The game board represents the stronghold itself as well as the surrounding terrain, where enemy forces are placed and from where they proceed to the walls. The defender has a small amount of soldiers manning the walls, while the invader has an infinite legion of them! A desperate fight is taking place every single turn. The invaders build war machines, equip their soldiers, train them and use black magic rituals to achieve victory. Meanwhile, defenders repair walls, build cannons, train soldiers and do everything they can to hold the castle as long as possible.

MagestormMagestorm is a new game of mighty battles in an age of magic! In the world of the Two Suns, the time of the Great Changing is coming! While mighty armies clash, powerful mages with godlike powers unleash the forces of magic on the battlefield, pursuing their own mysterious goals.

In Magestorm, players control the mystical powers of one of four different mages—the Firemage, Airmage, Druid, or Fate Guardian—and lead into battle one of the two complete armies included in this starter box: the human Kragis or the elf-like Lausjan. Only by perfecting a strategy that balances magic-use with military skill will you achieve victory!

SurviveIn Survive: Escape from Atlantis!, an underwater volcano has erupted and the island of Atlantis is sinking into the sea! Unless the people of Atlantis escape in time, all the inhabitants are doomed! This exciting revised edition of the classic game of aquatic survival tasks players to lead their people from the sinking central island of Atlantis to the safety of one of four islands nearby. But, the journey is fraught with peril as they must avoid sea serpents, whales, and sharks! When the volcano explodes, the game is over, and the player with the most survivor points wins!
