You are a respectable 1920s socialite striving to serve the finest morning tea.
All around Europe, eleven in the morning is recognised as the perfect time to stop and have a bite to eat. In Elevenses, you play cards to create your spread - sandwiches, biscuits, cakes - and don't forget the tea! When eleven o'clock strikes, the player with the best spread wins! Can you serve the most scrumptious morning tea of all?
Each player starts the round with an identical set of 11 morning tea cards. Each card has a point value as well a special action which must be carried out when it is played. The lower the point value of a card, the better its power is. The powers lead to surprising interactions between the players! Cards must also be played to a specific position on the table. When most cards are played, the player will pick up the card that was previously in its position, requiring you to plan your morning tea carefully!
The round ends when a player plays the 'Elevenses' card. It's time for tea! The players compare the value of their cards. Points are awarded to the highest scoring morning teas. The game continues until a player has 7 or more points. She has served the finest morning teas of all and wins the game!

Pack of Heroes is a two-player card game set in a fun parallel universe of vintage comic books. Each player picks his team from the 30 different heroes in the game, then takes on his opponent in an exciting tactical battle with all sorts of crazy super powers! Combat is resolved with the unique "power card" system, which is designed to have all the excitement of dice-based combat but with far less randomness. Whoever has the last hero standing wins control of Power City!
The heart of the game is the hero cards. They represent one hero in the game and are modelled after vintage trading cards. On the front side is a picture of the hero, and all the gameplay info about their powers; on the back are fun stats and an origin story!
At the start of the game, each player assembles his team. You can either pick one of the set starting teams or draft your team. Drafting allows you to put almost countless sets of heroes together to try out all sorts of crazy combos and synergies. Drafting works almost like a mini-game before the main event, as the players try to put their best possible team together. Once you have picked your team, it's time to fight. The players take it in turn either bringing a hero into play, or using their hand of power cards to trigger one of their heroes' amazing special abilities!
