THE ADVENTURE ZONE comes to your tabletop with the new ADVENTURE ZONE: BUREAU OF BALANCE card game!

The Adventure Zone: Bureau of Balance is a cooperative storytelling card game that lets you and your friends build your own stories in the world of The Adventure Zone. It’s accessible and easy to learn, even with zero previous experience with fantasy roleplaying games or The Adventure Zone. No need for a DM: all you need is an hour or so, a few friends, and a little creativity. 2-5 players, 60-90 Minutes, 13+ up

TAZ: Bureau of Balance uses a modular system to dynamically generate missions. One night you may find yourself fighting sarcastic specters as you make your way through haunted caverns, while your next mission might pit you against cunning gerblins on a train racing towards a perilous destination. With 12 decks of double-sided cards as a foundation, TAZ: Bureau of Balance provides players with over 120 hours of unique challenges.  

THE PERFECT BOARD GAME FOR THE TRUE CRIME FAN IN YOUR HOUSE — H.H. HOLMES’ MURDER CASTLE IS HERE!

Travel back in time to 1893 to explore the twisted and unpredictable World’s Fair Hotel. In Crimes in History: H. H. Holmes’ Murder Castle, you will explore rooms and collect evidence, while battling backstabbing overnight guests and evading Holmes in his thrilling house of horrors. 

* The castle can be built differently each time using unique modular room tiles inspired from the original castle’s blueprints. 
* Trapdoors, greased chutes to the basement, brick walls, and seeping gas are just some of the booby traps you’ll encounter as you travel throughout the castle. 
* Because Holmes knows the layout of the castle and all of the castle?s elaborate horrors, he can appear in any room with only a moment?s notice. 
* Draw from 79 event cards to gain a competitive advantage or to wreak havoc by sabotaging other players. 

The winner is the first player to complete their evidence board and rack back to the Pharmacy. 


This game features hand-drawn room tile illustrations by Holly Carden and includes all unlocked Kickstarter stretch goals including 7 paintable minis. This game plays 2-6 players and plays 15-20 minutes per player.

FAN-FAVORITE MR. JACK RETURNS WITH NEW EDITIONS OF THE REGULAR & POCKET VERSIONS OF THE GAME!

1888 – Whitechapel, London
The night is covering its alleyways with a dark cloak, leaving only a few areas lit by the gaslights. Eight investigators have come together to track down Mr. Jack, still at large. Mr. Jack is very clever, though: he is pretending to be one of them…

Mr. Jack is an asymmetric game for two players. Each player has a different aim. One takes on the role of the Detective, the other Mr. Jack.

The Detective must unmask Mr. Jack’s cover and then catch him. Mr. Jack will try to use the cover of darkness to slip away while doing his best to slow down the investigation. Using successive deductions, by moving characters in out and of the darkness, the Detective will reduce the number of suspects and tighten the noose around Mr. Jack. Will he capture Mr. Jack before the end of the eighth turn?
