In Tokaido, each player is a traveler crossing the "East sea road", one of the most magnificent roads of Japan. While traveling, you will meet people, taste fine meals, collect beautiful items, discover great panoramas, and visit temples and wild places. At the end of the day, when everyone has arrived at the end of the road you'll want to be the one who discovered the most interesting and varied things.
The potential action spaces in Tokaido are laid out on a linear track, with players advancing down this track to take actions. The player who is currently last on the track takes a turn by advancing forward on the track to their desired action and taking that action. So, players must choose whether to advance slowly in order to get more turns, or to travel more rapidly to beat other players to their desired action spaces.
All of the actions in Tokaido are very simple, and combined with a unique graphic design, Tokaido offers players a peaceful zen mood in its play.
Pocket Madness is a fast-paced card game inspired by the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. In the game, you evoke the powers of the Ancient Ones to drive your fellow cultists mad while securing your path to victory. To play, you first deal each player two cards from a deck then form a row with the rest of the cards. some cards will be face up while others will be face down. Each card will have one of 7 Great Old Ones depicted on it (with it's assosiated number).
On a turn, you either take 1-3 cards, open a portal, or open an investigation. When you take card, you pick up the first 1-3 cards in the row, then add them to your hand. To open a portal, you lay down three or more cards of the same God, then take the portal matching the number on those cards. Each portal has a different power, and you can use any one portal power on your turn. If someone else claims a portal that you own, too bad! You just lost the portal! To open an investigation, discard a full set of Great Old One Cards (numbered 6-12), after which every other player gains as many madness tokens as the number of investigations this round.
A round ends when one player runs out of cards or the card row runs out. In the latter case, everyone takes one final turn, then all players gain madness tokens equal to the number of different types of cards in their hand. If a player empties their hand, that player loses half of their madness tokens while everyone else gains one.
The game ends the round that a player has collected ten or more madness tokens..
In HOP! players are trying to reach the top of the clouds before their opponents by completing challenges. However, to complete the challenges will require the help of your opponents, who may also benefit.
You will travel the sky and cross the path of the legendary hippopocorns. Climb cloud to cloud in order to be the first to reach the top of the sky. Each challenge you face is another chance to rise higher in the sky óbut helping other players also earns you rewards. Numerous challenges can be met only by helping or being helped by the other players. Be clever and you will gain levels, but choose your partners wisely in order to limit the points they gain alongside you. As soon as someone reaches level 7, the game comes to an end, and the player with the most points wins!.
Omega Centauri is a game of galactic conquest by Nigel Buckle released at Essen Spiel 2014
After 2000 years of relentless oppression the Empire's iron grip on Omega Centauri is weakening. Now rebellion is spreading like wildfire as enslaved races try to reclaim what was theirs. Each player will control a unique race as they try to develop their technologies and culture, while also maintaining enough fleets to conquer the resource sectors fueling this development.
Players must compete against each other for the propserous systems that provide extra victory points, the dwindling resources and the technologies that will give them the edge over their opponents. Meanwhile The Empire, diminished but not defeated, will not sit idly by while you usurp it's rule; every round new fleets, technologies and defenses will be deployed to their systems to prevent the rebellions spreading.
