City of Gears is a unique steampunk game of exploration, area
control, worker placement, and strategy designed by Chris Leder and
Daryl Andrews. From your mighty Factory, you must race to claim
ownership over the magnificent ruins of an abandoned clockwork
metropolis. Each game plays in under an hour, and because only nine of
the city tiles (from more than 20 available) are randomly chosen and
placed each game, no two games ever play the same.
Each turn, you roll a number of production dice, then you move your
automaton workers and perform a variety of actions (such as drawing and
placing gears to reactivate areas of the city, sabotaging opponents, and
activating unique steam powers) as determined by the production dice.
Along the way, you will develop your factory with special powers which
set it apart and provide you with powerful bonuses.
As the city is revealed and its abilities are discovered, players
must concoct plans to accrue prestige and hinder opponents so that once
Opening Day arrives, they will emerge victorious! Do you have what it
takes to set the City of Gears in motion?Ages: 14+ | Players: 4 - 12 | Playtime: 15 - 30 minutes
London Dread is a co-operative game set in Victorian England. Players take on the role of investigators trying to uncover plots on the way to confronting a story specific finale.
The game is gritty and thematic, featuring a series of dark events and story lines (such as the appearance of a caped killer on the streets of London) with a hint of the supernatural.
The game is broken into a series of stories, usually played over the course of 3 chapters, in which players alternately participate in a timed planning phase where various obstacles and plots are uncovered and then an untimed execution phase where players resolve the effects of their planning.
The result is a tense and truly cooperative experience where players must work together, communicate well, plan effectively, and use the strengths of their investigators in an attempt to stay a step ahead on the mean streets of the city.
Playtime: 60–90 Min
Players: 2 - 4
