MEEPLES & MONSTERS

The peaceful city of Rowan is surrounded by dangerous monsters. It’s up to the citizens to fortify the city, train up warriors, clerics, knights, and mages, and defend Rowan in Meeples & Monsters! 

Meeples & Monsters is a big, beautiful bag-building engine builder by designer Ole Steiness (Champions of Midgard and more). Depth, replayability, beautiful components, and a splash of meeple humor will have you coming back for “just one more play” game night after game night!


LAST ONE ALIVE

The Zombie Apocalypse has begun, will you be able to survive? Arm and barricade yourself, use that chainsaw, perform heroic feats… But most of all, try to get the zombies to kill the others before they kill you! Everything is allowed in order to be… the last one alive!

Last One Alive is a fast and fun dice game for 2 to 5 players.


FREE RIDE

Free Ride, another fine game from Friedemann Friese, designer of Power Grid and Friday, takes us to the Golden Age of Railways in Europe. Around the end of the 19th Century, a growing network of railway lines was built in Europe. This allowed people to travel to the major cities to visit beautiful structures influenced by Art Nouveau and Historicism.

In Free Ride, you are in charge of building the railway lines that will connect the major cities of Europe and moving your train along the growing rail network to carry passengers to visit the famous structures in these cities.
