2-3 G35Jeff HeikkinenAperion (aka Fantasy Infinity)5 spacesLocal Designer My love-letter to a certain very famous JRPG series; a fast-paced tabletop RPG that borrows some Eurogame ideas.

Be the first people I don't already game with regularly to try it out!
2R3Ryan ClementFrozen Pothole: A Winnipeg FiascoFullLocal Designer"Muddy waters," that's what the Cree word Winnipeg apparently means, and it's as good a name as any for this isolated run-down Canadian metropolis on the edge of the flyover flats and the great abyss of wilderness that stretches between here and the Arctic. Mind you, any water you find, is more likely going to be of the frozen variety as a January polar vortex descends once more on the city plunging temperatures lower than the surface of Mars. But none of that's on your mind right now. Traffic is a nightmare in this weather: the city plows are behind schedule again, Portage Avenue is backed up to all hell, and you're pretty sure someone is breaking into back of your car just to stay warm. You swore you'd leave town for good decades ago, yet here are you again, repeating the same mantra as the Winnipeg Jets, "there's always next season." No matter how bad things get, you just can't shake this place, and maybe deep down, you never really wanted to. Frozen Pothole is a Winnipeg-themed play-set designed for the Fiasco RPG, an award-winning, GM-less game for 3-5 players, designed to be played in a few hours with six-sided dice and no preparation with a heavy focus on improvised storytelling over questing and battle mechanics. During a game you will engineer characters with grand ambition and poor impulse control, and play out stupid, disastrous situations, usually at the intersection of greed, fear, and lust. It's like making your own Coen brothers movie, in about the same amount of time it'd take to watch one. Check out the Publishers website!

4-5 G27EricSpaceCorp 2025-2300ADFullSpaceCorp: 2025-2300 AD is a fast-playing board game in which one to four players explore and develop outer space over three eras. Each player controls an Earth-based enterprise seeking profit by driving the expansion of humanity into the Solar System and beyond. Each of the three eras is played on a different board: the inner Solar System (Mariners), the outer Solar System (Planeteers), and the solar systems nearest to our own (Starfarers). Players compete to send teams across the board, exploring and building bases and later interstellar colonies and competing to complete powerful contracts through a card-driven system where each turn you play one card, but unlike many deck-builders, players have to take actions to replenish their hands of cards. Players also can play cards into their tableau as "infrastructure upgrades," giving them permanent additions to the various actions they can take. Players will also gain genetic enhancements and alien discoveries to improve their actions. At the end of the game, the SpaceCorp with the highest profit wins. Check out BGG

5G24Raymond NorthcottSagradaFullDraft dice and use the tools-of-the-trade in Sagrada to carefully construct your stained glass window masterpiece. In more detail, each player builds a stained glass window by building up a grid of dice on their player board. Each board has some restrictions on which color or shade (value) of die can be placed there. Dice of the same shade or color may never be placed next to each other. Dice are drafted in player order, with the start player rotating each round, snaking back around after the last player drafts two dice. Scoring is variable per game based on achieving various patterns and varieties of placement...as well as bonus points for dark shades of a particular hidden goal color. Special tools can be used to help you break the rules by spending skill tokens; once a tool is used, it then requires more skill tokens for the other players to use them. The highest scoring window artisan wins! Check out BGG

So it?s only natural that such an effort is spearheaded by a handful of wealthy corporations. We all know those totally focus on sustainability and not short-term profits, right??right? You play as one of these corporations amid the terraforming effort alongside your friends. You all may share the goal of Terraforming Mars, but you aren?t allies. The World Government offers generous funding to corporations that aid in the task of making the planet livable, and you want to ensure you have the biggest slice of that pie. Terraforming Mars is a competitive engine-building and card management game for 1 to 5 players where corporations have to find ways to generate a variety of resources to help terraform the planet. Oxygen, Temperature, and Oceans are the primary factors to forge a liveable environment, but how you get there is up to you.

8-9 G24EricFallout: The Board Game + New California & Atomic Bonds (co-operative)1 spacesFallout is a post-nuclear adventure board game for one to four players. Based on the hit video game series by Bethesda Softworks, each Fallout scenario is inspired by a familiar story from the franchise. Survivors begin the game on the edge of an unexplored landscape, uncertain of what awaits them in this unfamiliar world. With just one objective to guide them from the very beginning, each player must explore the hidden map, fight ferocious enemies, and build the skills of their survivor as they attempt to complete challenging quests and balance feuding factions within the game. The Fallout: New California expansion brings new quests, companions, vaults, and items to Fallout: The Board Game, letting you venture out into the wasteland as five new characters. While there, you can wander across twelve new map tiles that expand the scenarios found in the original game or head into sunny New California and visit some of the most memorable locations from throughout the Fallout series. With the Atomic Bonds Cooperative Upgrade Pack for Fallout: The Board Game, the number of scenarios available to you just doubled. This upgrade pack has everything you need to play every competitive scenario from Fallout: The Board Game and the New California expansion as a cooperative scenario. Rather than struggling against each other, Atomic Bonds lets you and your friends travel the Wasteland, grab the best gear, and push your chosen faction to victory?together! Combine that with the addition of modifications, mutations, and workshop upgrades, and Atomic Bonds pushes your games of Fallout to dizzy new heights. Check out BGG Check out BGG Check out BGG

8-9 R3MiriamKeystone: the Dungeons Beneath Tour Toriel3 spacesOn the high plateaus of the roof of the world stands the spire of Tour Toriel, a tower of rock and ancient ruins that predates all of recorded history. Within the fortress that clings to its unassailable slopes reigns the Dread Tyrant, whose power is so great that every kingdom and city in the land has bent to his dominion. One year ago, a terrible purple vortex opened in the sky above the spire. Harvests began to spoil in the fields; unspeakable new monsters spilled out of the wilderness. The wise women, the priesthoods, and the scholars cannot explain what is happening, but all signs are clear as to the source: something in Tour Toriel has gone awry, and will destroy the world if it is not stopped. You are a band of heroes dedicated to finding out what has gone wrong in the spire and stopping it. It is almost certainly a suicide run, but doing nothing is only a slower death. You have discovered a secret entrance to the caves under the mountains upon which the spire rests. Your plan is to delve this dungeon and work your way upwards into the castle. There, by hook or by crook, you will discover the source of this calamity and--hopefully--the means to end it. --- Keystone is a fantasy roleplaying game primed for Cortex that is also a step-by-step tutorial for learning how to play Cortex. The first adventure is free to download and play, and has all the rules you'll need included in the document. Two more adventures are available, and two more are in development.

8G28DarrylStone AgeFullLife was hard in the early days of human history. Our ancestors were hard workers, but through ingenuity learned to make much of this work easier. Over time, they developed tools to collect resources and develop human civilization. In Stone Age, you take on the role of a human in this bygone era. Beginning with archaic tools, you collect wood, stone, and gold to attain higher levels of knowledge and build sturdier structures. With resources being scarce, you must compete for the limited number of spaces on the board that produce them while also gathering food to feed your growing tribe. Through diligence and insight, you can forge your way through the early days of recorded history and build the foundation of human civilization. Stone Age is an engaging and accessible game where players take turns placing figures on board spaces to perform actions and gather resources. There are a limited number of spaces, so you must determine the best actions to take each round. It?s up to you to develop your tribe by gathering resources, constructing new buildings, and advancing their culture while also maintaining enough food to feed your people. Strike the right balance to create the most advanced civilization and lead your people to a better life!

9-10 L3Ryan ClementMagic, Myth, and Mystery2 spacesLocal Designer For centuries, humanity fought a secret shadow war against the creatures of darkness and myth, until one day the unthinkable happened. Peace. In exchange for being allowed to freely and openly join human society, the nearly extinct "supernaturals" agreed to follow human laws so long as humanity stopped its incessant messing around with dangerous magics. While certain parties on both sides still have their differences, the great Peace of Raven?against all odds?has largely held. That is, until the Organization of Magic, Myth, and Mystery (OMMM) somehow hired you to help preserve it. You and your "uniquely talented" colleagues work for OMMM, an international NGO dedicated to keeping things nice and friendly between human and supernatural alike. As interns, your duties include stopping rampaging mythological beasts, solving arcane mystical puzzles, confronting illegal sorcery, navigating office politics, and of course managing social media. Magic, Myth, and Mystery is a brand-new locally designed RPG that uses cards rather than dice in order to give players more influence over the trajectory of the story through a simple rules system. Set in a globe-trotting modern fantasy world not unlike our own, players will be able to choose one of six pre-generated characters, some human and some less so, based on legends from around the world as they try to save the world, not kill each other, and also avoid getting fired.

Cards allow you to send your Agents to certain spaces on the game board, so how your deck evolves affects your strategy. You might become more powerful militarily, able to deploy more troops than your opponents. Or you might acquire cards that give you an edge with the four political factions represented in the game: the Emperor, the Spacing Guild, the Bene Gesserit, and the Fremen.
