The Prodigals Club

“Welcome to The Prodigals Club! You and your fellows are proper Victorian gentlemen who have realized that the lower classes have more fun. Now you are in a friendly competition to see which of you can destroy his own social standing most thoroughly. In The Prodigals Club, you compete in three separate competitions: trying to lose an election, trying to get rid of all your possessions, or trying to offend the most influential people in high society. You can play any two competitions in combination or play all three simultaneously. Each competition interacts with the other two. To win, you need to balance your strategy and play all the competitions well.”

Spyfall 2

“Spyfall is played over several rounds, and at the start of each round all players receive cards showing the same location — except that one player receives a card that says ‘Spy’ instead of the location. Players then start asking each other questions — ‘Why are you dressed so strangely?’ or ‘When was the last time we got a payday?’ or anything else you can come up with — trying to guess who among them is the spy. The spy doesn't know where he is, so he has to listen carefully. When it's his time to answer, he'd better create a good story!” This is a fun bluffing game for up to 12 players.

Ice Cool

“The lunch break is almost there and all of the young penguins would finally get the fish they’ve been craving. However, some rascals think they are quick enough to snatch some of the fish before the lunch break starts, but they have forgotten one thing – the Hall Monitor! Each school day one of the penguins is designated to watch over the school, and this is his moment to shine – for each rascal penguin he catches he would get additional fish!” This is a great dexterity game for 2 to 4 players.
