D'r Af
Not available

This game was published multiple times in two separate forms between 1997 and 1999. It has sold out completely.

D'raf is a three to five player game simulating a crazy, uncontrolled race on a crowded highway. Instead of a game board, the table is used. The players take turns in laying cards. These cards make up the road on which the players drive their cars.

Speeding ahead, you cannot always lay enough cards to see the obstacles ahead of you in time. In fact, other players will try their hardest to put lots of dangerous obstacles right in front of you. After each accident the car will get more difficult to control. It would be safer to go slowly, but if you lag behind, you're out of the game...

Each player drives his car to the edge of the table as fast as possible. Whoever arrives first and drives off the edge, wins the game.

D'raf is well playable in convivial groups, who want to go at each other in a friendly manner. Since the playing time depends on the distance from the starting place to the edge of the table, it can be varied from about 30 to 90 minutes.

The game contains about 168 laying cards, 45 cruise control cards, 5 little wooden cars, a turn marker and rules in German or English.

Beest
Not available

This game sold out at Essen 2001 in one hour. It is a very experimental game, and most people do not really get the hang of it. We hope it is still being played, somewhere, as we quite liked the concept. Here's the original text:

It is freezing cold on the polar expedition. Your spit has started to freeze in your mouth, but you choose to remain outside. You must be careful. For one of you is the BEAST. You do not know who. It might even be two of you. Or more. And they are out to get you. So find out who to trust, before it is too late.

Beest is a cardgame of deep thinking and pure guesswork, which will keep three to six players busy for about 45 minutes.

Tetragons
Not available

This game was republished as ORAKLOS. Have a look there.

Planes & Trains
Not available

Planes & Trains was an expansion to Roads & Boats that has been republished as part of &Cetera. Have a look there.

This was the original box text:

Airplanes enable you to escape from your home area, bring distant parts of the world within reach and enable fast and lucrative trade with other players. Just bring your building materials, express shipments and trade goods to an airport, take off, and drop them anywhere you want.

Railroads are not as flexible as airplanes, but they can be used by everyone who can spare a modest fare, and what's more: they enable your own transporters to travel and visit distant parts of the world quickly and easily.

Bombs give you more flexibility in your planning. No more obsolete factories blocking the best building site for your mint: just blow up the ruins! Of course, explosives in the wrong hands can lead to disasters, especially if your factories are all built of wood. It may be wise to strengthen your core factories with a little extra stone.

This expansion set contains new transporters (airplanes), new buildings (airports and bomb factories), new goods (bombs), fortified-building markers, and a number of scenarios in which you can experiment with the use and the fun of aviation, trains and explosives. Rules were available in English and German. You need the original Roads & Boats game (any edition) to play this expansion set.

Naar de Oost!
Not available

This is the Dutch name for the game VOC! Have a look there.

The Dutch version was originally published by the city of Middelburg. The game is identical to VOC! except for the box, and for the fact that most copies only contain Dutch rules. We have made some copies of the Dutch box with English and German rules as well, but these are scarce.

Greed
Greed, Incorporated
€65.00 Inc VAT
SOLD OUT

"Twenty million, twenty-one million, twenty-two million... hey! Where’s the rest of my bonus?" The CEO’s voice does not match his elegant, tailor-made suit. "But sir..." the accountant protests, "you have bankrupted this company. Your employees have lost their pensions. Surely you can...". "Stop whining", the CEO interrupts him. "Clearly you don’t understand business at all. How am I supposed to pay for adequate transportation if I do not get my bonus? Make sure you transfer the money, today!". He slams the door of his white limousine and drives off, heading for a new challenge. Greed, incorporated is a game of corporate malversations and greedy executives. You run one or more companies and make their accounting books look as good as possible using every trick that good old honest businessmen ever invented. And some more. Just make sure to leave the company, cashing your exit bonus, before the company crashes and the credit crunch commences.

Duck Dealer
€75.00 Inc VAT
SOLD OUT

This game has SOLD OUT.

Duck Dealer is a game of involved, complex planning, set against a background of intergalactic trade. It is a game about recognizing routes, and developing profitable infrastructures; but above all, it's a game of racing your opponent to that one great opportunity you both see-- or does he have a different plan?

The object of the game is to amass riches by buying plastic beads, yellow rubber ducks, blue paint, and other innovative high-tech materials and then selling them to hapless consumers across the universe. Players take turns. Most turns will be very quick as players focus on collecting enough energy to realize their plans. From time to time, a player will burst into action, fly around the universe, and, hopefully, gain more money than his opponents…

Over the course of the game, players improve their spaceship, adding extra gear and cargo space. As they explore the galaxy, new centers of production rise to prominence, trade routes are changed, and money is made by different tricks…

The Great Zimbabwe
€75.00 Inc VAT
SOLD OUT!

SOLD OUT!

The Great Zimbabwe was published in October 2012; it sold out May 2013. We have reprinted it in September 2016. It sold out again in January 2017. We are not currently planning a reprint.

The Great Zimbabwe is a game about building a trade based civilization in ancient Africa. It has been inspired by the old kingdoms surrounding the Great Zimbabwe, a world heritage site in southern Africa. Far into the previous century, colonial governments denied that a civilization that produced such impressive monuments and beautiful artwork could have been African in origin. But of course, this civilization was African, and the country of Zimbabwe itself was proudly named after this impressive cultural heritage. As always in our games, we have used this history for inspiration; however, first and foremost we wanted to create a highly playable and replayable Splotter game, so in many cases we took liberties with historical names, periods and artwork. In the game, players strive to build the most impressive monuments to one god of their choice. They can choose this god themselves-- each of the twelve gods offers a unique blessing, but each also requires a different amount of work to win the game. Building the monuments is done by developing a logistics network stretching across the region. Through this network, players produce and obtain ritual goods to raise their monuments and bring honour to the god of their choice.

Here's the flavour text from the rules:

The Mutapa king struts into the village, followed by a bunch of young warriors herding cattle. “Oondabezitha ”, he addresses the assembly of kings, “I have brought twelve heads of cattle for the ceremony tonight”. The others seem to shrink in stature as he speaks. The star of the king of Mutapa is clearly ascending. They have not brought nearly as much cattle themselves. “Soon, we will all be praying to Obatala”, murmurs one of the older Kilwa traders. “The Mutapa will be raising their godless monuments sky-high. Perhaps it is time for us to resort to some magic of our own”. Then the sky breaks into a thunder and a torrential rain pours down on the assembly. The men scramble while the plains fill with water. The ceremony will be wet tonight...
Roads & Boats
€79.99 Inc VAT
SOLD OUT

Roads and Boats is our oldest classic. We reprinted the game 4x so far. The latest print run has sold out!

Here's what the game is about:

In Roads & Boats, each player builds a civilization over a long period of time, like in many other games. Unlike most games, however, the emphasis is not on warfare, population growth, city or statebuilding, but on logistics, or rather: on transport.

Each player starts the game with three donkeys, a pile of wooden boards, a number of stones and two geese. With these few resources, you try to build such diverse things as woodcutters, roads, boats, mines, a stock exchange... but beware! There is no concept of territory in this game: you cannot own land, nor buildings, so the things you build can be used by any other player...

The game can be played by two to four players, but it can also be used as a one-person puzzle. Material for a fifth and a sixth player is available in the &Cetera expansion.

The basic game contains a rule and scenario book in English and Germand, a pile of hexagonal terrain tiles, 120 means of transportation from donkeys to steamers (wooden pieces), 75 walls (little woorden rods), 4 research boards, 28 discovery stones (glass), a wonder of the world with 193 wonder stones (cardboard), 18 mines + bags, 115 factories (cardboard), 600 goods (cardboard) and several other parts.

The fourth edition is very similar to the third edition except: the counters have be printed on both sides (gold and iron are black on the backside); the stickers have been upgraded to last longer; and, hopefully, we have a foldable plate instead of a rolled-up one.

Bus
€89.54 Inc VAT
SOLD OUT

Bus was a game we published in 1999 and again in 2000 and 2001. It's often quoted as being one of the first games that uses worker placement as a core mechanism. The first copies of the game were made entirely by hand. The later editions were professionally printed. The game features a board that shows a lot of the games that were famous in the '80-s and '90's. The artwork on the board and the box was done by Tamara.

We are completely out of stock for this game.
