The Facts Machine
Limited Capacity filling up

The Facts Machine has gone haywire! It’s spewing out incorrect information and it’s up to you to shut it down before the world fills up with misinformation and chaos! In this cooperative trivia game, players are tasked with picking out the 1 incorrect answer the Facts Machine has added to questions like “The 3 countries that border Paraguay.” If they guess correctly, they move the lever closer to turning the Machine off and winning. If they guess incorrectly, the Machine moves closer to Full Power. If the Machine reaches Full Power, the group loses.

Quast: the Game of Gnomic Epicness!
Limited Capacity filling up

In this card-based game, players move throughout the realm of Quast, battle enemies and other players, and most of all, try to find five gnomes. Players that find five gnome cards immediately draw an 'ultra enemy' card, and if their battle total is good enough, they can defeat the ultra-enemy and become champion of Quast! This game is inspired by Munchkins, has a sense of humour, and would be suited to players of all ages who appreciate a game that can make you laugh.  

Designer: Adam Davidson-Harden
Demographic: Mixed gender, Gamers who like Munchkins style games and games with a sense of humour
