Carcassonne Expansion 1: Inns & Cathedrals
In this first expansion for Carcassonne, you will have the opportunity of building imposing cathedrals that increase the value of your cities. Inns along your roads will double the value of your thieves, but if those features are not completed at the end of the game, no points will be scored. Plus, a large follower is added to the fray, as are the components for a sixth player and Point tiles for making following each player’s score easier.

Carcassonne Expansion 2: Traders & Builders
This second expansion to Carcassonne adds a new dimension to the experience. Eager traders are engaged in a fierce competition to acquire the cities’ various goods. Two new pieces give players more options during their turn. Builders make it possible for players to play two turns in a row, while strategically placed pigs can greatly increase the value of fields.

Carcassonne Expansion 3: The Princess & the Dragon
Fantasy is introduced into the land of Carcassonne with this third expansion. An imposing dragon is flying over Carcassonne and its surroundings, scaring followers away. Heroes and adventurers are doing all they can to resist the dragon’s assaults, but it is all for naught without the fairy’s assistance. Meanwhile, the princess is recruiting knights for her personal guard. While they are busy laboring their fields, farmers stumble upon magical portals that lead to unexplored areas, which are hopefully out of the dragon’s reach.

Carcassonne Expansion 4: The Tower
Carcassonne’s expansion continues! Its citizens have now decided to expand upwards with imposing towers. These towers extend the rule of the local lords and introduce new options during the game, allowing players to capture their opponents’ followers. On top of new tactical possibilities, this expansion includes a tower used to store and distribute the tiles during your games.

Catching Fire Seeds of Rebellion Board Game
Ever since you were eligible for the Reaping, the Peacekeepers had their eye on you – the food supplies that went missing, the graffiti denouncing the Capitol – they had a good idea it was you. Until now, you thought it best to steer clear of open conflict. But, the whispers for volunteers to help the rebellion made it clear it was time for you to take action. When you finally reached the leaders of the rebellion your reputation had preceded you. Glad to have your skills, they immediately assigned you to your current mission – to set up secret bases throughout Panem. If you are successful, your efforts will ensure at least a chance for the rebels to make a difference. Fail, and they won’t stand a chance!

The Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game
Gain glory for your people as you work together to defeat Sauron and save Middle-earth in The Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game! Lead an army of brave Men, wise Elves, battle-hardened Dwarfs, and even the short-statured but stout-hearted Hobbits – represented by custom dice – to stand between Sauron and his armies of Orcs, Goblins, Trolls, and Ringwraiths as they scour the land to find The One Ring!

Batman: Gotham City Strategy Game
Behind the facade of Gotham City lies an active underworld of criminal activity. Play as one of Gotham City’s greatest villains – The Joker, The Penguin, Killer Croc, or Two-Face – and lead your gang of henchmen to become the King of Crime in Gotham City! But, beware! As your hold on the city increases so does the chance of your plans being foiled by Gotham’s protector – Batman!
