You’re living the dream and in a band and that's about to go on tour. It's your job to try and visit as many US states or European countries as possible in 100-days.
On Tour is a 20 minute route-building, roll-and-write board game with large, premium components that's good for 4 players or (12+, with additional maps). Each turn, dice determine which numbers you write while cards restrict where you can visit. Players write simultaneously on their own maps, all using the same dice rolls and cards flips. Everyone is getting the same inputs, but how you choose to deal with them will determine your band's success.
Opportunities for bonus points, and a variable setup phase ensure every tour faces new challenges!
Make On Tour USA and Europe a party game by purchasing two games and you can play up to 16 players! There's really no limit to how many players can play this game...provided you have the maps!

It's 2008, and the economy is crashing. You're a big government and it's your responsibility to enact "Quantitative Easing" (QE) measures by bailing out companies at auctions and preventing the financial collapse of your country.
Start printing money to bail out companies you like the most and remember, you are a government so there is no limit to what you can spend! You get a marker and a blank check. The amount you bid is up to your imagination!
At the end of the game, total up all your winning bids by the amount of companies and special bonus points. Whoever has the most points wins... Almost... If you spent the most during the game, you're disqualified! A super interactive experience that turns auction gaming on its head.
Bites Board Game MSRP $35
- Commodity Speculation
- 2-5 Players
- 20 min time to play
Snack and drink wine on your way to the top of the Ant Hill in this exciting and constantly changing indirect-conflict commodity speculation game.
Based on the Spiel des Jahres Recommended "Big Points" but with a new theme, more engaging components, and rule tweak cards to make sure every play is different.
Players move ants along a trail and collect food as they go. However, the value of that food depends on how the other ants move. Shared incentives mean you are always trying to figure out what the other players are up to. Variable "rules cards" mean every game play is fresh.

Become a treasure hunting pirate in Loot of Lima, a multiplayer deduction puzzle where you ask questions and piece together information to find the gold before your opponents.
Deduction games are games like Clue. In Clue, you try to figure out the who/where/how of a murder by asking questions to eliminate suspects.
Loot of Lima is similar, except Loot of Lima uses a clever coordinate system to give you the sense of searching different spots on Cocos Island. Loot of Lima is much harder. Not harder to learn, but harder to solve the head scratching puzzle of where the treasure is buried.
It will stretch your brain to play Loot of Lima, but you'll get to focus all your energy on playing the game, because the rules are straightforward.
Pre-Order. Estimated January 2021 Shipping.
Here are three small and quick board games perfect for any occasion.
We love the end of the night when things are wrapping up, but you want to play *just one more game*. These games are the refreshing post-dinner sorbet on your gaming menu. They have the perfect ingredients:
- Fast gameplay (10 minutes to play)
- Quick to teach (start in 30 seconds)
- Tension and exciting moments
- The satisfaction of getting in one more quality game
This game series exists because we believe there should be more games like that. We've focused on easy to teach before, but these are SUPER easy to teach.
Don't let the simplicity trick you though. There is enough strategy that after the game your mind will wander back to a couple of key turns, and you'll wonder "Should I have played just a little bit differently?"

Take on the role of a tough beetle with a bad attitude and something to prove as you battle for supremacy in the ring and your place in the pantheon of legendary wrestlers.
Kabuto Sumo is a slide/push game where your goal is to push your opponents out of the ring. Pushing discs may seem straightforward, but you’ve got to make sure you choose the right wrestler for the match, craft a strategy, and quickly adapt to changes. Each wrestler is based on a real life insect and their physiological defense mechanisms. They all have special signature moves which introduce wild variables and uniquely shaped pieces that can dramatically influence the gameplay - so make sure you use them wisely!
It’s quite simply the greatest disc-pushing insect sumo wrestling game ever made.

Say hello to the board game bag you’ve always wanted.
We all know plastic crates are awkward to carry, have a poor storage-to-weight rating, and barely keep your games safe. And let’s not get started on grocery bags or bungee cords.
That’s where our thoroughly-tested board game bag comes in.
These bags are made specifically with board games in mind. They’re 12 inches wide, lovingly hold the equivalent of 7 large "Ticket to Ride" sized game boxes, and are padded to protect them. But that’s not all, every bag is weather-resistant, offers up to 4 carrying methods, a front pocket for small items like our digital scratchpad, and can fold away for when you’re not using it. And yes, they even can be used as a "normal" travel bag.
The Premium Bag significantly ups the value with style and strength upgrades like the soft-touch fabric, the vibrant color options, and metal parts that increase durability. It also adds a shoulder strap to help prevent those hand cramps from ambitious packing lists.
This bag will carry your games to the finish line.
Pre-order. Estimated shipping in November.
Everyone should strongly consider having one or two at home, if we can be so bold. It's going to come in handy. When you're halfway out the door and decide at the last second to grab some games, you'll be glad you have this bag. When you’re going to a friend's house for a quick dinner and want only a couple games, this is the bag for you.
Why this bag, you ask?
It’s perfectly sized to fit common board game boxes, the zipper lid is going to keep your games from spilling out in the car, and it’s water-resistant for when it rains or your dog drools over it with excitement at the thought of playing Bites. And it certainly doesn’t hurt that it’s supremely affordable.
Small 3' x 5' Playmats will ship in December, before Christmas.
