It is the eve of Carnivale on the magical Victorian isle of Ludobel, and you are all invited to the fantastical festivities!In the card game Belle of the Ball, players
take on the roles of party hosts, seeking the best mix of guests to
make their gala the greatest by the end of the night. In order to ensure
that they stay one step ahead of the other hosts, players will have to
carefully watch the growing line of guests at the door, inviting those
in that seem to share passions with party-goers already inside, all the
while handing out their precious stash of Regrets to those who should
seek refuge elsewhere. Of course, other hosts may find it advantageous
to invite a rejected guest inside just to collect their accumulated
Regrets for later use.
Hosts may also choose to ignore the competition for guests and
instead try to earn the favor of the Belle of the Ball herself, whose
charms can make or break any party.

Compounded is a game about building chemical compounds through careful management of elements, a fair bit of social play and trading, and just a bit of luck. In Compounded, players take on the roles of lab managers, hastily competing to complete the most compounds before they are finished by others – or destroyed in an explosion. Some compounds are flammable and will grow more and more volatile over time; take too long to gather the necessary elements for those compounds and a lot of hard work will soon be scattered across the lab.
Although Compounded does involve a fair share of press-your-luck tension and certainly some strategic planning, the most successful scientists will often be those who strike a good trade with their fellow lab mates. Players are able to freely trade elements, laboratory tools and even favors – if there is truly honor among chemists!
Ages: 13+ | Players: 2 - 5 | Playtime: 30 - 90 minutes
Life is always busy at Slim’s Auto Shop. But ever since a rival repair store opened up across town, things have seemed even more chaotic than usual. Simple repairs have started going wrong; instead of new headlights, that old Jeep was sent out with six new belts. The bus with four broken windows was cleaned up and given diamond-studded tires. Is it possible that someone is deliberately throwing a wrench in the works?
Could one of your co-workers be... a Traitor Mechanic?
Traitor Mechanic: the Traitor Mechanic Game is a game of social deduction and auto repair for 4 to 10 mechanics... some of which may be traitors!
