Pulsar 2849Pulsar 2849

Designed by Vladimír Suchý
2–4 players, 14+, 90 min
In this Euro-style game, players explore space, claim pulsars, and discover technologies that will help them build energy-distribution infrastructure on a cosmic scale. Players choose their dice from a communal pool and then use them to take actions. There are many paths to victory, so you can blaze your own trail to a bright future.



That's a Question!That's a Question!

Designed by Vlaada Chvátil
3–6 players, 15+, 30 min
Players take turns creating questions. On your turn, you ask your question and pick one player to answer. Everyone else tries to guess what their answer will be. They get points for guessing right, and you get points when everyone else guesses wrong. So you want to make a question that is difficult to answer.



Codenames: DuetCodenames: Duet

Designed by Vlaada Chvátil & Scot Eaton
2 players (or two teams), 11+, 30 min
Codenames: Duet is a cooperative game for two or more players. You do not need any other Codenames game to play. However, if you own the original Codenames, you can use the word cards from the two games interchangeably.



Tash-Kalar: EtherweaveTash-Kalar: Etherweave

Designed by Vlaada Chvátil & David Turczi
2–4 players, 13+, 40 min
In the third expansion to Tash-Kalar, you will discover effects that can be used even before you summon the being. But beware! Time travel can have its consequences. Once you have used the being's effect, it has a strong desire to be summoned. To be a master etherweaver, it is not enough to see the future: You must shape it.


Regarding the Adrenaline team expansion, we have two pieces of news for you. The bad news is that due to us wanting to ensure a polished game, we've decided to postpone the release date to sometime in 2018. The good news is: More and more playtesting is still being done, team modes for 2, 4, and 6 players is happening and the game is getting better all the time, and the artwork looks promising.

CGE DigitalIn addition to the board games, our digital team will present the recently released Through the Ages game for smart devices as well what's new with Galaxy Trucker and progress on our other digital products, including Codenames.
