Cypher System: Godforsaken
The Godforsaken Lands are places where the gods themselves cannot go. It’s a paradise in the homelands thanks to the power of the gods, but only the bravest, strongest, smartest, and craftiest of mortals dare explore these blasted, blighted lands of old. And now your player characters can join those ranks. Can they survive the demon-haunted songs and monstrous Emperors of Hate? Now you’ll be able to find out.
Godforsaken is a 160-page sourcebook on fantasy that details a brand-new original setting, some Cypher Shorts adventures, and much more.
Unmatched: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
In battle, there are no equals.
Unmatched: Buffy the Vampire Slayer features four heroes. Buffy will hit you with Mr. Pointy or summon her Slayer’s strength for a cartwheel kick. When it’s time for backup, she’ll take her pick between insightful Giles or reliable Xander. Spike, a relentless hunter, seeks the shadows and calls on Drusilla’s Sight to let him know just where and when to strike. Willow, a peerless witch, dabbles in black magic and risks her darker self, potent but dangerous. At times, only Tara can bring her back from the brink of the abyss. Angel, once the Scourge of Europe, is cursed with a soul, conflicted by his victories and taking solace in his losses. Faith is there to make sure things stay “Five by Five.”
Unmatched is a highly asymmetrical miniature-fighting game for two or four players. Each hero is represented by a unique deck designed to evoke their style and legend. Tactical movement and no-luck combat resolution create a unique play experience that rewards expertise, but just when you’ve mastered one set, new heroes arrive to provide all new matchups.
Ring the bell…angry gorilla!
Durian is the latest game from the well-known game designer Masato Uesugi, creator of Paper Tales, Welcome to the Dungeon, and many more! Inside the compact box, you’ll find 7 wooden card stands, a small hand bell, and cards. This board game can be played by a wide range of 2 to 7 players, and small children can have fun, too.
Players become a clerk in a fruit shop, and each player takes one fruit card each. The number of fruit shown on all of the players’ cards is the current amount of fruit in stock. However, because you can’t see your own fruit card, you don’t know what the actual amount of fruit is. Using the reactions of the other players around you, predict the amount on your own card and carefully try to stock the fruit. If you think too many orders have been taken, ring the hand bell and call over the gorilla manager. “Hey, Boss!”
