The world you know no longer exists. There is no government. No army. No civilization. The United States has collapsed, and now thirty years after the war started, new powers finally try to take control over the ruined country, try to establish a new order, try to control others and create a new country, a new state: the 51st State.

The entire set has been rebalanced to offer a cohesive experience no matter which expansion you choose to use.
In 51st State: Scavengers, nothing is lost forever ? meaning that you can now search the discard for valuable locations and leverage them for use in your State.
51st State: Scavengers, the first expansion for 51st State: Master Set, is based on the previous 51st State expansion Ruins. This set of fifty cards brings back some favorite cards from the original expansion while introducing new locations to the game as well as a new mechanism.
Like the 2 expansions included in the 51st State Master set, it is recommended to only combine 1 expansion with the core cards from the Master Set.

Settlers from four major powers of the world have discovered new lands, with new resources and opportunities.
Romans, Barbarians, Egyptians and Japanese all at once move there to expand the boundaries of their empires. They build new buildings to strengthen their economy, they found mines and fields to gather resources, and they build barracks and training grounds to train soldiers. Soon after they discover that this land is far too small for everybody, then the war begins...
Imperial Settlers is a card game that lets players lead one of the four factions and build empires by placing buildings, then sending workers to those buildings to acquire new resources and abilities. The game is played over five rounds during which players take various actions in order to explore new lands, build buildings, trade resources, conquer enemies, and thus score victory points.
The core mechanism of Imperial Settlers is based on concepts from the author's card game 51st State.
Imperial Settlers: 3 Is a Magic Number, the second Empire Pack for Imperial Settlers, introduces a new rule: SET. This new ability allows players to score and trigger new effects each time they build three cards in a particular colour. With this rule, the drafting phase and the choice of the "right" card to draft becomes even more interesting.
This expansion includes new cards for the common deck as well as new cards for each of the five factions and two cards for use in the solitaire game.
Discover the new deckbuilding mechanism, which lets you change the contents of your faction deck during the game and focus on powerful combos! Amazons extensively use cards with the ?building bonus?. Most of their faction cards are useful, and produces valuable resources only when built, while usually having only the foundation as their cost. That minor change is in fact huge for how we treat our faction buildings. Amazons are a unique faction that will not discard their faction foundation when used to build another card, and will put back in their faction deck instead.
What?s more, you will also gain the ability to discard cards from the hand, which will help you control your next moves. Now you can focus on the few cards, that will grant you the most victory points! Amazons use elements of the deck-building mechanism so that they can discard reconstructed faction cards from their deck, allowing them to modify the deck during play. They also get a lot of bonuses for building their cheap faction cards. How will you help them secure their place among others? As you may have realized by now, all new Imperial Settlers factions begin with the letter "A" ? and this is no exception! With Amazons, the third big expansion for Imperial Settlers, this formerly warmongering tribe is now building their new empire.
Imperial Settlers: Atlanteans, an expansion that requires the base game to play, adds the option for playing Imperial Settlers with up to five players.

The Atlanteans bring a new resource to the world of Imperial Settlers with technology that can unlock special abilities on faction cards and transform common buildings into powerful allies. The Atlanteans must use their abilities to find unique ways to score because their faction buildings sink at the end of the game and do not score points! While the other factions do not have the knowledge to use the technology of the Atlanteans, some buildings for each faction allow them to use some of that technology to their advantage.

Neuroshima HEX is a game of tactics, where armies wage continuous battles against each other. The post-apocalypse world of Neuroshima is a world torn apart by a war between humans and machines.
The remains of humanity took shelter in the ruins of cities and organized in small communities, gangs and armies. Conflicts between such groups are not uncommon and the reasons of such are numerous: territory, food or equipment. What is more, the ruined cities are constantly patrolled by machines sent from the north where a vast cybernetic entity called MOLOCH appeared. Great wastelands that surround what was left of the greatest cities are home to another enemy ? Borgo ? a charismatic leader who controls an army of gruesome mutants. One of the last hopes of humanity is the OUTPOST, a highly organized army which wages a guerilla war against MOLOCH. Nevertheless, most human settlements, including the HEGEMONY, are not concerned with war until it comes banging at their door. Such is the world of Neuroshima.
Neuroshima Hex! 3.0 includes rule corrections, a solo variant with 55 puzzle cards that present you with challenging situations and new three-player variants.
The Moloch attack on Omega had unforeseen consequences: damage to the facility unleashed three strange creatures. They are the product of a secret genetic research project, codenamed "Dancer".

This is not a stand-alone game. A copy of Neuroshima Hex 3.0 is required to play.
The Death Breath is a terrifying virus which began spreading forth from the eastern enclaves of the Moloch. It infects every living thing, changing them into brainless, bloodthirsty beasts.

Engines roar through the night sky as you see clouds of dust coming your way. Hot tires screech across the road as hundreds of riders wreck havoc to anything on their path. They are followed by heavily armoured warriors, intimidating everyone with a cacophony of metallic sounds made by their chains, net launchers, and other weapons of post apocalyptic war.
First, the riders are going to surround and entangle you with their web of steel. Melee fighters will follow soon after, bringing pain and destruction. Even if you are going to defend yourself, even if you manage defeat one of them, more replace their fallen comrade.
Death is coming your way. You can try to run. You can try to hide. But sooner or later, you are going to fall into their hands. This is not your average gang ? this is Iron Gang, a brutal group that has perfected the art of the hunt from the back of the steel steed.
Neuroshima Hex: Iron Gang introduces a new army pack to Neuroshima Hex!, and both the HQ and certain units feature a new "chain" ability. Chain connects two units with that ability if there is a straight line between them, and it allows them to target and hit any unit on that line.

This is not a stand-alone game. A copy of Neuroshima Hex 3.0 is required to play.

New York didn?t collapse. Destroyed by atomic bombs, transformed into a fortress among the ruins, it still fights in the defense of the ideals of Free America. So far it has become a capital of the small state of the same name and has start a crusade to restore the human world. At the same time it has usurped the role of guiding the nation, and removed their opponents wherever they can.

The city itself has become a fortified police state, one of the few safe places in the ruined world, where you pay for peace with your obedience.
Sharrash is a mysterious and well-organized community of mutant rats endowed with inhuman intelligence. They live underground, in tunnels and canals of the destroyed cities, along with degenerate humans and mutants who serve the Sharrash. They do not allow strangers anywhere near them and fiercely defend their nests, and their fighters will not hesitate to give their life for the pack.
The main advantages of the Neuroshima Hex! Sharrash army are mobility of HQ, the ability to blow up even the fastest enemy units and to paralyze the slower ones, and the possibility of bypassing the enemy's defense lines thanks to the mortars. Another advantage of the Sharrash is a difficult to eliminate Foundation Tile (Hole), which can easily thwart the enemy's plans.
Sharrash's disadvantage is a smaller number of fighting units than in other armies, their low mobility, low toughness and initiative, as well as a complete lack of armors.

The Steel Police army pack introduces a new ability in a Neuroshima Hex line, Reflection, which protects the army unit from all attacks directed at its side marked with Reflection icon. Such attack is reflected in the opposite direction for a distance of one field and hits an enemy tile (Unit, HQ or Module) if it stands on an adjacent field on the line of attack. Reflected attack doesn't harm Steel Police tiles.

Tides of Madness is a sequel to Tides of Time and features similar gameplay. Each game consists of three rounds in which players draft cards from their hands to build their kingdom. Each card is one of five suits and also has a scoring objective.
After all cards have been drafted for the round, players total their points based on the suits of cards they collected and the scoring objectives on each card, then they record their score. Each round, the players each select one card to leave in their kingdom as a "relic of the past" to help them in later rounds. After three rounds, the player with the the most prosperous kingdom wins.
Tides of Madness adds a new twist to the above game: madness. Some cards, while powerful, harm your psyche, so you must keep an eye on your madness level or else risk losing the game early as your mind is lost to the power of the ancients. Whoever has the most madness in a round either scores 4 points or discards 1 madness token ? and the latter option is valuable because if you ever have nine or more madness, you lose the game immediately.
Play as an ancient civilization as they prosper and collapse through time. Build gigantic monuments, raise impenetrable fortifications, and amass vast knowledge as the ages pass. The greatest civilizations will leave their mark long after their collapse. From times long forgotten to times recently lost, civilizations will rise and fall as the tide of time carries them.
