Terraforming Mars

Gravwell: Escape from the 9th Dimension

A Study in Emerald

  • Hosted by: Marshall Thompson
  • Player Count: 2 to 5
  • Description: The Old Ones have taken over the world. Players are secretly split between Loyalists and Restorationists and compete to save (or destroy) the Old Ones.

Deckbuilding mechanic, great art, 90 min. play time.

  • Hosted by: Ryan De La Torre
  • Player Count: to 4
  • Description: Civilization-building game with lots of resource management and lots of indirect interaction. Randomized card purchase pool and randomized event cards give it plenty of variety and make it more tactical than strategic. 30-45 minutes per player.
  • Interest: Stuart Sierra, Gary Fenstamaker, David Sison
