Subdivision

Subdivision

Subdivision mimics the city-building feel of Bézier Games’ Suburbia, but differs in scope as now each player has been allocated a specific area in which to create the best possible subdivision, filling it with residential, commercial, industrial, civic, and luxury zones, while balancing various improvements to the area, including roads, schools, parks, sidewalks, and lakes. By the end of the game, each player will have created a unique, custom neighborhood with areas that interact with each other, hoping to outscore the competition by having the best subdivision.

Say Bye to the Villains

Say Bye to the Villains

Designed by Seiji Kanai, the game is about valiant heroes, called vanquishers, who stand up to protect good people from evil villains beyond the reach of the law. Vanquishers work in the shadows, cutting down evil wherever it can be found, but they must be quick to discover the villains’ secrets and constantly hone their martial skills in order to succeed.

Each player takes on the role of a vanquisher, punishing villains the law cannot reach. But each villain holds several secrets. Some are guarded by many followers. Others threaten to kill hostages. And still others are perhaps not as evil as they appear. The vanquishers themselves are not invincible; ambushing a villain in a dark alley with no preparation could result in defeat as easily as victory. Each vanquisher holds a hand of cards representing that vanquisher’s special abilities and preparations for battle. Players must use these cards to learn the villains’ secrets, and to strengthen their own blades of justice. But using abilities takes time, and time is precious when so much evil is about. You must cooperate with your fellow vanquishers lest you yourselves become the vanquished! Will the vanquishers defeat all of the villains, or will evil prevail?

Trains and Stations

Trains and Stations

In Trains and Stations, a new take on train games, players must make deliveries, develop buildings, and profit from their decisions while working with and against other players. Will you focus on establishing mining operations in an attempt to gain a monopoly on coal, silver and gold? Or perhaps you will focus on laying tracks across the landscape and helping other players move their goods – taking your cut, of course. Every game will evolve differently with unique twists and turns as you control the movement of goods across the game map!

Valley of the Kings

Valley of the Kings

When you die, you can take it with you!

Take on the role of Egyptian nobles at the time of the pharaohs, preparing for death and burial in the Valley of the Kings. Players want to fill their tombs with food, canopic jars, statues, amulets and other treasures, and to do so they acquire cards that are laid out in the shape of a pyramid; the higher the card on the pyramid, the more expensive it is to buy — but when lower cards are purchased, the pyramid crumbles, lowering prices on the cards that fall. The pyramid resets each round with new offerings.

You score only for cards that you remove from your deck and stash in your tomb, so if you keep using valuable cards for their effects and don’t entomb them before the game ends, you could lose out on big points! Whoever collects the most valuable artifacts in her tomb wins.
