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
A social game of deduction and deception. Who among you can see through the lies? Who is capable of getting away with murder?
In Deception: Murder in Hong Kong, players find themselves
in a scenario of intrigue and murder, deduction and deception. One
player is the Murderer, secretly choosing their weapon and the evidence
they leave behind. Another is the Forensic Scientist who holds the key
to convicting the criminal but is only able to express their knowledge
through analysis of the scene. The rest are investigators, interpreting
the clues to solve the crime – and the killer is among them.
Investigators must collaborate and use their wits, their hunches, and
their keen deductive insight to correctly identify the means of murder
and the key evidence to convict the killer. The murderer must mislead
and confuse the investigators to save themselves.
Do you have what it takes to see through the lies and catch the
criminal in your ranks or will they muddy the waters long enough to get
away with murder?Contents:

A long, long time ago on the far flung planet of Asteros, an ancient king confined unspeakable monsters behind a Rune Gate and sealed it shut with 4 divine Runes. The gate has stood dormant for more than a millennia, until now. The seal has weakened an the evils of the Aether once again plague Asteros!
As the influence of Silk, the crystalized form of Aether itself, spread and corrupted all it touched, the wizened sage ORAKL petitioned the Council of United Planets for help and four of their top agents – EKHO, HAL, ELI and NOVA have been dispatched.
Codenamed “Rising 5”, these heroes are Asteros’ only hope. If they are to save this world they must find the lost runes and harness the power of the Silk to seal the Gate once more. But many dangers now lie in wait on this one peaceful planet…
