Troika

Not far into the future, a stone was found in a star — then more stones were found, and it turns out that if you combine three of these stones in the right way, you create a very valuable jewel. What’s more, you can combine them in a different way to create fuel.

In Troika, you are an adventurer who has dreamed of making a fortune, so you’ve traveled to this star along with other wanderers. Unfortunately, your spacecraft has no more fuel, so while you’d like to create jewels, if you don’t also create fuel, you’ll die as the richest person at the end of the universe!

In the game, you place all the heptagonal tiles face down on the table, and on a turn you either draw a face-down tile or take a face-up tile that someone returned to the table. You have a hand limit of seven tiles, and within that limit you’re trying to collect both three tiles of the same number (to serve as fuel) and three tiles in numerical order (to transform into a gem). If you have no fuel, you can’t win the game; of those who do have fuel, the player with the most valuable jewel wins.

Zogen

In Zogen, a.k.a. ゾーゲン, the player researchers want to rid themselves of their microorganism cards as quickly as they can, but they can do so only by observing the current lab environment and watching the one thing that changes, then “recording” it by playing their card.

In more detail, each player starts with a hand of sixteen cards, with each card showing 0-4 types of microorganisms, which are named “Maru”, “Tsuki”, “Yama”, and “Siri”. The start player for the round places one of their cards face up on the table, then everyone plays at once, trying to lay down a card that differs from the initial card by exactly one microorganism, whether one more or one less.

Thus, if a card shows “Maru” and “Tsuki”, you can lay down a card that shows either “Maru” or “Tsuki” or a card that shows “Maru” and “Tsuki” along with one of the previously missing microorganisms. You must say the name of the microorganism that is added or removed when you play a card, then everyone must match the card that you just played.

When a player has only three cards in hand, the round ends and players score points based on their rank in terms of how many cards they hold. Whoever has the most points after you’ve played the agreed-upon number of rounds wins.

A Fake Artist Goes to New York

エセ芸術家ニューヨークへ行く – which is pronounced as “Ese Geijutsuka New York e Iku” and can be translated as Fake Artist Goes to New York – is a party game for 5-10 players. Players take turns being the Question Master, whose role is to set a category, write a word within that category on dry erase cards, and hand those out to other players as artists. At the same time, one player will have only an “X” written on his card: they are the fake artist!

Players will then go around the table twice, drawing one contiguous stroke each on a paper to draw the word established by the Question Master, then guess who the fake artist is. If the fake artist is not caught, both the fake artist and the Question Master earn points; if the fake artist is caught and cannot guess what the word is, the artists earn points.
