Fruit Market

The power’s gone out. Can you manage to find the fruit you need for your business?

The market is full of 12 different types of fruit. Each fruit has three different types of features that overlap with one another (for instance, a mango is smooth on the outside like a banana).

By asking questions about a neighbor’s inventory and keeping an eye on others, players can deduce and collect the fruit needed to satisfy one’s backlog of customer orders.

Players can’t just use their own fruit to fulfill orders, so some careful movement of fruit may be needed in addition to careful sleuthing.

The winner is the fruit seller that earns the most points from their completed orders.

Features

  • Many tropical fruits people find new and cute
  • Simple gameplay with enough strategy for all ages
  • Answers and actions can reveal what other players are going for

Components

  • 36 Fruit Cards
  • 18 Objective Cards
  • 1 Guide Chart

Beach Combers

There’s a whole lot of treasure out there. The trouble is, you need to dig in to find it.

Light hand management, area control, and bidding combine in a quick, strategic game that has players searching parts of a beach for buried treasure.

Beach combers take turns searching the beach (represented by cards) with their metal detectors. Some parts may hold special actions; others contain valuable treasures. Every now and then, Mother Nature may choose to take matters into her own hand.

In the beginning, no part of the beach is off limits. As worthless objects begin to litter the beach and backpacks start filling up with loot, however, players face numerous decisions including a run to the local pawn shop and messing around with other beach combers along the way.

The winner is the player that earns the most revenue by the time no more treasures can be uncovered.

  • General access to any card
  • Piles of cards that combine and split up
  • Simple betting mechanism for offloading low-value treasures

Crunchy Leaves

Nothing spells happiness quite like a crunchy leaf. Will you collect the crunchiest of them?

In Crunchy Leaves, players collect sets of similar types of leaves. Be the first to collect three sets to win a recognition badge, but watch out for players that might be collecting even better sets than you.

When leaves fall on a player’s pile, location matters. Players aren’t able to move leaves around except to claim them. As the game goes on, leaves begin to fall more frequently.

Combined, this changes player’s strategy as not only rounds progress but the game goes on.

The winner is the first player to receive three recognition badges.

Features

  • Curated piles of cards on the table
  • Rounds end more quickly as the game progresses
  • Race to complete sets
  • Ties broken by points assigned to difficult of acquiring sets

Components

  • 90 Leaf Cards
  • 10 Acorn Cards
  • 10 Recognition/Leaf Tokens

Noodle Shop Challenge

The heat’s increasing in the kitchen, but is it from the stove, your team, or the long queue of hungry customers outside?

Dice rolling and worker placement bring players into the kitchen where chefs work cooperatively to prepare and serve customers’ orders.

One head chef works together with one or more chefs to make sure what is being prepared is to the customer’s liking.

Even if chefs are able to efficiently operate their kitchen, there’s always the question of promotion at the end.

Features

  • Table presence with handcrafted bowls of noodles
  • Chefs secretly vie for more recognition

Hackronyms

Hack together sentences in this high-energy word game where your solution is somebody else’s problem.

Players create ever-increasingly complex sentences for opponents to handle in this quick word game where every letter represents the beginning of a word.

Working to complete a single complete sentence within a reasonable amount of time, players generate sentences that are often wild (if not downright hilarious).

Thanks to Andrew and Patrick for being there to start this whole journey. Without your encouragement, I’m not sure where Hackronyms would be.
