Moon – The third in a trilogy which includes Villagers and Streets from Sinister Fish Games. Moon is a competitive game of lunar base-building.

The White Castle – Themed on the Himeji Castle during the Edo period of Japan, this is a worker placement and dice drafting game. Players will use resource management, worker placement, and dice placement to carry out actions in order to score more victory points than their opponents. Played over three rounds, players send members of their clan to tend the gardens, defend the castle, or progress up the social ladder of the nobility. At the end of the game these activities award players victory points in a variety of ways. – – 1 to 4 players – – 80 minutes

Red Dragon Inn 9: The Undercity – The latest in the The Red Dragon Inn series, a hilarious game of fantasy adventurers in medieval times drinking each other under the table in order to steal their gold and hard-won treasures. Each player takes the role of a different character at the party in the tavern as they drink, gamble and roughhouse with each other. The last one standing during this evening of fun is the winner. Each in the series is a standalone game that can also expand on the others in the series. The cast of characters in The Undercity are Dale the Mycologist a mushroom farmer, Beastsergeant Ygella who patrols the tunnels and manages the creatures, Doctor Terci a tireless medical professional, Jett the Courier a daring athlete, and Petra the Devious who poisons, plots and has friends in dark corners. – – 2 to 5 players – – 15 to 20 minutes

Clever 4ever – the latest in the Clever series (That’s Pretty Clever and Twice As Clever), a roll and write game. Choose your dice well entering them into the matching-colored area, put together tricky chain-scoring opportunities, and rack up the points.
