Sidereal Confluence (Board Game)
This is a deep and fluid trading game like no other. Assume the role of one of nine alien species trying to impress its own value structure upon a galactic treaty organization, each with completely different needs and capabilities. Everything is for sale, and all deals are binding; these two simple rules make Sidereal Confluence a memorable social experience on par with classics such as Alien Encounters.
GM: Mike Rizzuti; 4-9 players
Merchants and Marauders (Board Game)
Live the life of an influential merchant or a dreaded pirate in the Caribbean during the Golden Age of Piracy. Seek your fortune through trade, rumor hunting, missions, and of course, plundering. Modify your ship, buy impressive vessels, load deadly special ammunition, and hire specialist crew members. Will your captain gain eternal glory and immense wealth – or find his wet grave under the stormy surface of the Caribbean Sea?
GM: Thomas Compter; 2-4 players
Diamonds (Card Game)
Diamonds is a trick-taking card game in which players collect Diamonds — not cards bearing that suit, mind you, but rather actual “Diamond Crystals” (acrylic crystals) included in the game. What makes the game of Diamonds different from other trick-taking card games is that when you cannot follow suit you get a “Suit Action” based on what suit you do play. Suit Actions are also taken by the winner of each trick, as well as at the end of a full Round of play.
GM: Jeannie Compter; 2-6 players
Hand & Foot (Card Game)
Hand & Foot is a set building game, normally played with four people in two teams. It typically uses four or five regular poker decks including the jokers. Each player starts with two piles of eleven cards. One pile is their hand, the other, their foot. The players draw two cards a turn, playing some if they choose and then discarding one at the end of each of their turns. Once a player has played all the cards in their hand they will pick up their foot. Sets are comprised of 7 cards of the same number. Sets may have wild cards in them, jokers and twos, but then the set is no longer clean, it would then be considered dirty. A team needs at least 1 clean set and 1 dirty set to go out.
