“My favorite legacy experience.” - Tom Vasal, Dice Tower
We had a fantastic time at Gen Con 2019, and brought out the table for our friends at Man Vs. Meeple to join Becca Scott to play Time Chase, releasing this month at your friendly local game store.
Time Chase is a trick-taking game with a twist — you are allowed to travel back in time to previous tricks, known as events, and change their outcome. The first player to control three events in the timeline wins!
If you love trick-taking games, you’ll love this delightful game!
Time Chase plays 3-6 time-traveling scientists aged 10+ in about 30 minutes (provided you don’t mess with the time continuum).
Tell us in the comments who your favorite fictional time traveler is!

Denver, CO – 7/31/2019 – Dire Wolf Digital, in partnership with Penny Arcade, announced today that Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated will be available this September at retailers everywhere!

“This is the biggest year ever for Acquisitions Incorporated, and joining Dire Wolf to deliver a Legacy Clank! experience has tantalized me to my very core,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder of Penny Arcade, Child's Play, and PAX. “I'm probably gonna have to get a whole new core now. But I welcome it.”
Found your own franchise of the legendary adventuring company Acquisitions Incorporated, and shepherd your fledgling treasure-hunters to immortal corporate glory.
“We’ve wanted to turn Clank! into a legacy game pretty much since we took our first noisy steps into the dragon’s dungeon,” said Scott Martins, President of Dire Wolf Digital. “Getting behind the screen with the team at Penny Arcade to bring the Acquisitions Incorporated universe to life has been one hell of a fun adventure, and we can’t wait to get it into the hands of Clank! players. (Watch out for Mimics!)”
In this Legacy game, you’ll work with and against your co-adventurers through a 10+ game campaign. Your successes, failures, and choices will permanently affect the game and the world around you as your journey unfolds, resulting in a unique and fully replayable Clank! game. Clank!

A two-sided game board
A franchise board
Four player miniatures
One dragon miniature
A cloth dragon bag
A book of secrets
…and much more!

A storm has destroyed a small coastal village! Help them rebuild, while monitoring the health of the reef and the magical Aquicorns. Find the right balance to grow the village and restore the reef ecosystem!
When Lana and her father return to their seaside hometown to help clear the debris of a big storm, Lana remembers how much she’s missed the ocean—and the strong, reassuring presence of her aunt. As Lana explores the familiar beach, she discovers something incredible: a colony of Aquicorns, small magical seahorse-like creatures that live in the coral reef.
Based on The Aquicorn Cove, a graphic novel by Eisner award-winning artist and writer Katie O'Neil and published by Oni Press, The Aquicorn Cove Board Game is a cooperative game perfect for family game night.
In the game, players take on the roles of members of a small fishing village struggling to survive while maintaining a balance with the natural world. To win, the villagers must feed and grow their village, and help restore the health of the reef and aquatic ecosystem. The villagers are fortunate, though, and the waters of their cove are home to the beautiful and benevolent Aquicorns, as well as the wondrous reef guardian Aure, who can help them both to understand the impact humans are having on the environment, and to save the village.
Aquicorn Cove The Board Game is designed for 2-4 cooperating conservationists aged 10+ for 30-60 min.
Want an early sneak-peek at The Aquicorn Cove Board Game? Join us at Gen Con for the Renegade Rally - special preview night happening at Gen Con in the event room #139 on Friday Night! You can RSVP on our Gen Con Events Page to secure your spot and get in early!
We're so thrilled to announce that we're once again working with Mandy and Jordan Goodard, designers of the award-winning game Lotus, to create a new 19th century horror-inspired game for release in October - just in time for Halloween!
You have finally set out to find the truth. You’ve heard the rumors of ancient runes and the lost pages of a scattered tome that tell of ancient and evil monstrosities; calling for their return. You’ve heard tales of those who came before you in this search losing grip on their sanity as they grew nearer to the truth. As you press on you can’t help but notice that you feel less attached to reality yourself. Some days you lose track of time and can’t account for hours of the day. The whispers of secret gates to another world are growing stronger, and while no one knows who is building them... You have a dreadful hunch...
Could you be the hidden architect of the Gates of Delirium?
In Gates of Delirium, players will have a hand of split action cards: one side sane, and the other insane. Every round, one player will decide if it is a sane or insane round, and all players must play that side of their cards. During sane rounds, players will be searching for maps and lost pages to a secret tome, while assigning investigators to help them in their cause. During insane rounds, players collect ancient runes and work to build Gates to release the monstrosities that their sane selves have been trying so hard to understand and prevent. Earn the most victory points by the time the last monstrosity is released to be the winner in Gates of Delirium.
The sequel to critically-lauded Architects of the West Kingdom is coming in October of this year!
If you're a fan of the North Sea Trilogy or Architects of the West Kingdom, we've got news for you: Paladins of the West Kingdom is coming in just a few short months!
Paladins of the West Kingdom is set at a turbulent time of West Francia's story, circa 900 AD. Despite recent efforts to develop the city, outlying townships are still under threat from outsiders. Saracens scout the borders, while Vikings plunder wealth and livestock. Even the Byzantines from the east have shown their darker side. As noble men and women, players must gather workers from the city to defend against enemies, build fortifications and spread faith throughout the land. Fortunately you are not alone. In his great wisdom, the King has sent his finest knights to help aid in our efforts. So ready the horses and sharpen the swords. The Paladins are approaching.
The aim of Paladins of the West Kingdom is to be the player with the most victory points (VP) at game's end. Points are gained by building outposts and fortifications, commissioning monks and confronting outsiders. Each round, players will enlist the help of a specific Paladin and gather workers to carry out tasks. As the game progresses, players will slowly increase their faith, strength and influence. Not only will these affect their final score, but they will also determine the significance of their actions. The game is concluded at the end of the seventh round.
Paladins of the West Kingdom plays 1-4 players aged 12+ in 90-120 minutes.
