Thar be treasure at the end of these BAD MAPS!

Everyone loves a good treasure hunt, and if you want to take on that adventure from your board game table, BAD MAPS is the game for you!

X marks the spot as you and other pirate captains piece together scraps of maps, sending minions stumbling around the island – leading some to traps and others to treasure. But beware, other captains’ instructions may work against you. Yargh! Are you a clever captain who can turn Bad Maps into Good Fortune?

Send your minions out across the island, some may find glory, and some may find their doom as they bumble about the island following your instructions. Minions will dig wherever you send them, and after the first round, things start to get a little crazier, and the island a little more dangerous.

Score points based on the proximity to the treasure, and in the end, whichever captain pieces together the best treasure maps is the ultimate pirate winner!


Harness all the magic you’ve ever wanted, and become the most magical mage in RES ARCANA!

RES ARCANA is a world positively teeming with magic, mystery, and intrigue. Locked away in the high tower, the Alchemist tirelessly prepares his magical concoctions in vials full of otherworldly fluids.

A lonesome Druid grinds the herbs needed for his mystical rituals. Under the land, the Necromancer begins his quest to summon a fire-breathing dragon.

In RES ARCANA life, death, elan, calm, and gold are the essences that fuel the art of magic. Craft artifacts, summon dragons, and conquer powerful lands on your quest to become the most glorious sorcerer there is!

RES ARCANA is a unique game to play, with it’s mechanical mix of engine-building, deck management, and resource gathering; players will have to be strategic in their choices of cards to play or discard, monuments or places of power to acquire, as the person with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.


THE NEVERLAND RESCUE brings a new spin to some of our favorite characters!

Peter Pan and Captain Hook are two of the most famous enemies there are! So what happens when Captain Hook takes captive most of the inhabitants of Neverland? Well, Peter, along with Tinkerbell and the Darling children have to help save them, of course!

THE NEVERLAND RESCUE is a unique two-player only game sees players take up the mantle of either the villainous Captain Hook, or everyone’s favorite hero who’ll never grow up, Peter Pan! The two have very different objectives within the same game! Peter must rescue five of his companions, while Hook must discover five of Peter’s companion’s secret hideouts!
However, belief in faeries can be the tipping point of who takes the glory between Hook and Pan! If players have enough ‘ticks’ on to one side or the other (either believing in faeries or not) they win the game immediately! In the fight between deduction and collection, who will come out on top of Neverland?

A player may not bring two characters with the same name, even if they have different subtitles (i.e. Wolverine: Wanted, and Wolverine: Canucklehead).

NEVER PLAYED? No worries! Andrew Miller will be running the event and can teach you everything you need to know to get started. Plus, many of our top players started not too long ago and love introducing new players to the game!

WHAT IS DICE MASTERS? Basically, it’s like a trading card game, but with dice! In Dice Masters, two players take the role of masterminds directing the actions of a team of powerful supers (represented by dice) to battle each other! Each turn, you’ll roll your dice to see what resources you have available, buy dice, send your team members into the field, and then strike at the enemy mastermind. Reduce the opposing mastermind’s life to zero, and save the day!

Dicemasters is a dice-building game (similar to deck-building card games) where players collect and assemble their team of character dice and battle in head-to-head gameplay.

Monsters can increase their power throughout the game by smashing buildings and destroying enemy units. When two monsters fight each other, the results are devastating – they can throw each other across the city, rampage through buildings, and suplex each other into radioactive rubble! The last monster standing wins the game.
