Imploding Kittens

This is the first expansion pack to Exploding Kittens and includes 20 new cards illustrated by The Oatmeal.
  • Expands the core deck from 5 to 6 players.
  • 100% compatible with any Exploding Kittens deck.
  • Includes a human-sized "cone of shame," which is used as part of the game.
This is an expansion only.  It requires a copy of Exploding Kittens

Coming Soon...

A mind-shattering journey into the world of HP Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos warped into the shape of a Love Letter experience.
You’re not trying to gain affection from the Princess. You are trying to eliminate your rivals for power as you seek to understand the cosmic horror that lurks just beyond what we foolishly call “reality”.
In each round only one player will prevail. Use deduction and luck to eliminate other players or watch as their own madness consumes them.
Will you accept madness as the price that must be paid for Knowledge Man Was Not Meant to Know? Or will you attempt to hold the shreds of your sanity together in the face of eldritch nightmares attempting to enter and destroy our world?

Rainbow Stairwell

On Friday 28th July we will be running a 'Rainbow Stairwell' Magic the Gathering Constructed tournament.

Many of you will not be aware of what this is, so I have decided to clarify the deck construction rules.

In the Rainbow Stairwell format, players make a 60 card deck utilizing six cards from each of the five colours of magic (blue, black, green, red and white) plus six colourless spells. (For these colourless spells they may be identified by either the {1} generic mana symbol or the new {C} colourless symbol).

These six cards must have a converted mana cost ranging from one to six, with each card taking up one of six slots.

In regards to land you may have 4 of each type of basic land (including 4 of the new wastes)

If more clarity is needed or if you have any questions please contact me.

Vanguard Promo Cards

At last some good news for Cardfight Vanguard players, we finally have some new (well newish) promo cards. We have received our promos for June. This means that we can again start giving out cards to all participants plus special 'CONGRATULATIONS' ones for the winners each week.

Heroclix Battle Royale

The HeroClix Battle Royale Format is a special type of draft tournament designed for quick play. A typical Battle Royale takes place with 4 players, each with one sealed booster.

The players draft their potential forces as a normal draft, selecting one figure from their pack and passing the remaining figures to the player on their left, continuing until each player has five figures. 

There are no restrictions on force construction and each player uses all of the game elements they draft, unless specified ahead of time. Each player is responsible for verifying the other players’ teams are legal.
Standard Battle Royale Maps are 2’x2’ with each player starting in a corner. This is a free-for-all event in which each player is opposing to each other player. Play continues until an action resolves in which all players but one no longer control any characters, or until time has expired. The player with the most KO points total is the winner.
At the conclusion of the game, players will return the figures they used for the event to the center of the map to create a prize pool to which additional prizes may be added. Players will snake draft and select their prizes with the winning player choosing first.
