For this year’s autumn we’re working on couple of new games. We hope you will enjoy them. Sadly Galaxy Trucker – Another Big Expansion wont make it to Essen. Nevertheless it will be available from our partners right after Essen 2011.

Dungeon Petz

Players: 2 – 4
Time: 90 mins
Age: 13+

Become the leader of imp family that has just started a new business – breeding and selling petz. Sound simple and safe? Well, we forgot to mention that those petz are for Dungeon Lords. That means magical, playful, sometimes angry monsters that constantly desire attention and in the very moment you want them to show their qualities to buyers they are sick or they poo. Sometimes you are even glad that you got rid of them. But the profit is unbelievable.

If you want to find out more about these mysterious petz you should visit this page.

When you try to draw a squirrel, does it look like a weasel with a bushy tail? Congratulations! You draw well enough to play Pictomania.
In Pictomania each player is assigned a word to draw. Your goal is to guess the other players’ words while drawing your own. That’s right: Everyone is drawing and guessing simultaneously! No one has time to draw a complex masterpiece. The player who can sketch the essence of a word with a few lines will have more time to figure out the other players’ drawings.

For this year’s Essen we have provided enough copies of our games, that we can be sure they won’t run out on Thursday or Friday. That’s why you don’t have to reserve our games in advance, just visit our booth 4-310. However we recommend not to hesitate too much, it’s still possible we would run out of one or more games during the week-end.
