Vampire the Masquerade: Blood Feud!

Blood Feud, a Mega Board Game is a highly thematic, team-based, strategic game that plays 4-32 players and is run by 1-2 storytellers who also interact and play in the Mega Board Game. The game is "Round-based" and each round is timed in real-time (such as the First Round being about 10 Minutes). As the game progresses, the rounds decrease in time making the game go faster and become even more thrilling!

As a player, you will play as one of the warring vampire clans such as Ventrue, Tremere, Gangrel, Toreador (and others) or perhaps you’ll choose to become one of the human factions fighting for their own desires, such as City Hall, the Mafia, or the Arcanum, with many more to choose from. Each has their own special powers, and unique background stories to help you get into character and play uniquely. Each faction also has unique goals in how they want to play the game asymmetrically which creates awesome replayability throughout sessions.

Alien the Roleplaying Game
Space is vast, dark, and not your friend. Gamma rays and neutrino bursts erupt from dying stars to cook you alive, black holes tear you apart, and the void itself boils your blood and seizes your brain. Try to scream and no one can hear you—hold your breath and you rupture your lungs. Space isn’t as empty as you’d think, either—its frontiers are ever expanding. Rival governments wage a cold war of aggression while greedy corporations vie for valuable resources. Colonists reach for the stars and gamble with their lives—each new world tamed is either feast or famine. And there are things lurking in the shadows of every asteroid—things strange and different and deadly.

The Night Cage
The Night Cage is a co-operative, tile placement game that pits players against a maze-like prison where the only bars are eternal darkness. Due to the limited light of their candles, players can only see the tiles immediately adjacent to them. As players move, the tiles they leave behind disappear into the darkness. In this way, the maze is continually made and unmade by the players. To win, players must rely on teamwork and collective strategy to collect 4 keys, find an exit gate, and escape the labyrinth together.
