BIOTIX

Play Dirty. Get a Reaction!
You can pack a lot of fun into a small box, especially when you pack it full of microbe meeples. I’ll say it again. Meeple Microbes (squeeee!)
In this nasty little 2-5 player game, your boss, Dr. Lillian Johannae has made a groundbreaking discovery in the field of microbiology. She has discovered a new breed of extremely unstable, highly volatile microorganisms, BIOTIX™ (patent pending and pronounced ‘biotics’) that can uneasily coexist within a small system. But science can be a brutally competitive field. What began as an innocent pursuit of discovery has quickly devolved into self-centered posturing and ruthless backstabbing among her lab personnel, all vying to have their name attached to the research paper, thereby rocketing you into scientific superstardom.
Your mission, carefully grow the largest culture of BIOTIX you can in your petri dish – and sabotage the work of others by pushing their microbe populations above their limit, causing them to explode and bio-react in all sorts of fun ways.
Game play is simple: on your turn, draw two BIOTIX from the specimen bag and place them, one at a time, either into your own dish for points or into an opponent’s dish to try and force a bio-reaction to destroy their work. Each of the five BIOTIX species has a different trigger number and a unique bio-reaction when they ‘go off’. The BIOTIX are in a constant state of flux throughout the game, as is your score, because at the end of the day you gain points for the BIOTIX remaining in your dish, with the most volatile BIOTIX being worth the most points.

J'Accuse!

The Butler did it… and so did everyone else! In J’ACCUSE!, everyone at the table is guilty of murder, but only one of you need pay the price.
For this is a game of implicating others, passing around incriminating evidence and accusing one another of doing the old man in.
In the end, enough evidence will be forced upon a single player to make a solid case against them… one loser and a table full of winners who got away with MURDER!
This is a light, approachable card game for 3-6 players that requires players to vote, in the blind, on where evidenced will be passed each turn or try to catch others with a well timed, “J’ACCUSE!”
This defining moment is often a shouted out accusation, drawing laughter, roleplay-esque denials from the players as well as a crowd of onlookers. Makes for compelling demos. Ages: 14+ | Players: 3 - 6 |  Playtime: 45 minutes

Koi

"Ultimate Victory Surfaces in the Face of Adversity" A Beautifully Thematic, Light Strategy Game for 2-4 players As a Koi fish, you spend your days (turns) swimming to and fro by playing a number of movement cards, with the goal of gobbling up as many dragonflies and frogs as you can every day. Each movement card has from two to four programmed moves, straight, turn, rotate any direction and leap over a space, with some moves being mandatory when played, and others being optional. Your tranquil Koi Pond begins with some decorative stone and a few lily pads, but you will also receive Natural Beauty cards in your hand that allow a player to add more lily pads, cherry blossoms, ornamental stone and frogs – which both enhances the beauty of the pond, while at the same time, causes turmoil beneath the still waters for the other Koi. Lily pads are great, as they spawn dragonflies every turn, each of which is worth 3 Victory Points when eaten. Cherry Blossoms ripple the surface of the water as they land, causing all living things to scatter in the opposite direction – and if you play them wisely, right into your mouth! Stones prevent fish from entering a space and are best placed to block an opponent’s path to a meal. Frogs are delicious 1 VP meals all their own, but… they also eat dragonflies in adjacent spaces, so often they are placed to deprive opponents of their dinner. As the weather changes, and a new event card is revealed for the day, so must your strategy. At the end of seven days, the game comes to an end, with the best-fed fish being declared the winner. Be wise, be quick, or go hungry. Persevere and you shall succeed. Ages: 10+
Players: 1 - 4
Playtime: 40 - 60 mins
