The Stakes have been raised in Horrified, a co-operative board game of monsters, mania, and misunderstood creatures.

Engines purring, goggles down—the seaplane is set for take-off! Welcome to the whimsical world of Wayfinders, where intrepid explorers race to chart new paths through the skies.
You will need to think on your feet and outfit your planes with the right gear to arrive safely. But building hangers on islands and stocking them with parts can help you zip around with ease! Be sure to be keen in your planning and you will unlock the charms of the islands.
Wayfinders is an enchanting route-building game by Thomas Dagenais-Lespérance (Decrypto) that is sure to be a game night mainstay for families and gamers alike! Wheels up—adventure awaits!

Reigns: The Council is a royal party game from the designers of Citadels and Skulls where players take turns being a monarch who is being ‘advised’ by their council. Tilt the realm too far in one direction or another and you’ll be deposed; the table crowns a new king or queen, and onward we go!
Paragon: Trials of the Chosen is a card game which de-emphasizes luck and minion combat, where your draw pile is sequenced by you, and turn order isn’t as straightforward as you think. Wield powerful abilities and equipment to defeat the enemy avatars.
