Dice Throne is a game of intriguing dice, tactical card play, powerful heroes, & unique abilities. Before the game begins, each player selects a single hero to take into battle. Perhaps you want to be the slippery Moon Elf, the mighty Barbarian, or the impenetrable Paladin. If larceny & stealth is more your style, then the Shadow Thief is for you. Battle your friends in one on one battles, two vs. two or all out mayhem in a free-for-all. DiceThrone is for ages 8 and up, 2-4 players, and runs about 30 minutes for a battle. With the ever expanding gallery of heroes the game feels fresh each time you jump in!
A game for 2 to 5 players that takes 45 to 60 minutes to play, featuring simultaneous turns, dice rolling, engine building, and a little night time subterfuge.
It’s a manufacturing arms race! You compete against other players to see who can build the most efficient set of factories in the shortest amount of time. Players roll their dice, run their factories, and sabotage their way into industrial dominance.

In a world of vast seas and magical wonders, pirates and traders alike share the open waters around the isles of Praedonia in an effort to fill their vessels with endless treasure.

In Pirates of Praedonia, you decide whether to give in to piracy or to navigate the realm with honor. But whichever path you choose, beware! Spawned from the mysterious Shadow Reef lurks a nearby evil…the dreadful Dark Water!
