The Royal Game of UR
This ancient racing game’s exact rules is the source of great dispute among archaeologists, come sample the best guess on how to use these replica pieces designed from 2 and half millenia old site in Mesopotamia. Said rules were recently popularized by Irving Finkel of the British Museum.
Merchants of Freeburg
Merchants of Freeburg was designed as an Educational Tool that lets players learn about the complicated interplay of markets and governments, through implementing policies and changing laws as the Burgermiester, while playing a fun, family game for 2 to 4 players ages 10+ that anybody could find playable and entertaining.
Battle for the Moon
In Battle for the Moon players grapple for Lunar dominance while negotiating for resources and dealing with the harsh realities of traveling in space. The game is focused on developing and exerting control over different regions of the lunar surface, however there are other, perhaps more peaceful, ways to eek out lunar domination.
Our original title, first was presented at OSG August 2013, will be available for play upon request from us for those interested parties. The game is focused around simulating conflicts between competing mercenary companies set to a Medieval Italian theme, the winner is not just the one that completes their objectives but the one who makes the most money doing so.
See you there!
