You will manage your limited resources wisely and look for new ones, you will recruit new Workers while your old experienced ones will retire, you will build settlements to keep the population happy and you will praise the Gods to earn their favor. Caesar will reward you if you give away precious resources to build Hadrian’s Wall thus increasing your chances of becoming Praetor.
Every turn you will place your Workers on previously built City Tiles to gain resources, Morale, new Workers or Favor Points. You may also assign Workers to build new City Tiles or spend resources to meet Caesar’s demands to gain Favor Points. At the end of each turn, you will have to pay your Workers. Otherwise, the mood in the city will deteriorate.

Progress: Evolution of Technology is a card game about researching technologies and building a civilization. Each player guides his nation from the earliest signs of human development and learn various technologies, moving progressively to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance until the fist sparks of the Industrial Revolution.
Progress: Evolution of Technology focuses on a single aspect of civilization building, researching technologies that help a society advance.
The technologies are divided into three ages:
ancient (10000 BCE to 500 CE) – from the invention of the wheel or the development of agriculture
medieval (500 – 1450 CE) – from the collapse of the Western Roman Empire and beginning of the migrations
renaissance or early modern (1450 – 1740 CE) – from the invention of the printing press and the formalization of science
They are also divided into three paths or areas:
culture – focuses on arts and the development of human behavior and values and contains technologies like Burial, Musical Instruments, Opera, Newspapers or Sociology
engineering – covers the most practical discoveries and advancements in human history, such as Masonry, Cast Iron, Paper, the Steam Engine or the Railroad
science – focuses on rather abstract developments of humanity, like Mathematics, Astronomy, Cartography, Thermodynamics or Biology
The game play is streamlined, each player take a set number of actions per turn with the ultimate goal in mind, researching technologies to develop his nation and win. The main actions a player may take are:
research a technology by paying a cost (resulting in discarding one or more cards) or having one or two prerequisite technologies. Each technlogy comes with a specific benefit, thus enhancing the game play or making a step towards victory
developing a technology in time which translates in setting a tech card aside and letting scientists develop it over 4-5 turns
draw cards from a common draw deck
Researching a specific technology brings one or more of the following advantages to that player:
direct victory points which count towards the total needed for victory
one or two steps up on the three tracks (population, army and prestige) on which players are competing for dominance
game play enhancement like having more actions, drawing more cards, discounts for technologies, moving to the next age, etc

An ancient tale, spoken only in whispers, tells of a forbidden underworld crafted at the dawn of time. Some say that it is a plain completely overtaken by the Mists. Others believe that it is still the domain of the Nightfather, and his testing ground for those he chose to become his champions.
Awaken, pick up your sword and follow the whispers that guide you into the depths. But beware! Monsters and perils await, and in the madness of the labyrinth, you may even face shadows of those, who were once your companions!
Shadowscape is competitive/cooperative objective-based game of planning and skill, played in dungeon randomly built out of a set of different rooms. Players manage their tableau of skills and hands of fate cards to complete a set number of Nightfather’s Whispers in order to win – alone or as a team.
Each turn players use double-sided Action Cards to move, search rooms and attack monsters (but not other players). Almost any Action can be boosted using symbols printed on Fate Cards, which also allow players to control enemies and manipulate the environment of the game.
Automated monster AI makes the game a varied and challenging experience both in its competitive, as well as cooperative mode. The cooperative mode also allows for solitaire play, with one player taking on the role of two or more Heroes trying to leave the dungeon of Shadowscape before the time runs out.
Shadowscape takes place in the Mistfall universe, once again brought to life by outstanding art by Enggar Adirasa, allowing players to take on the roles of iconic Heroes of both Mistfall and Heart of the Mists, and face the ruthless villains they know in a new and surprising game.

Travel back in time to the greatest city in Mesoamerica. Witness the glory and the twilight of the powerful pre-Columbian civilization. Strategize, accrue wealth, gain the favour of the gods, and become the builder of the magnificent Pyramid of the Sun.
In Teotihuacan: City of Gods, each player commands a force of worker dice, which grow in strength with every move.

While managing their workforce and resources, players develop new technologies, climb the steps of the three great temples, build houses for the inhabitants of the city, and raise the legendary and breath-taking Pyramid of the Sun in the centre of the city.
