Plink-plink-plink-thunk. Ah yes, the sweet sound of marbles navigating the winding maze of translucent towers in Gravity Maze. With an untold number of possible combinations, creating a path for your marble is anything but simple. Logic, reasoning and visual perception are all essential for solving the sixty puzzles ranging from beginner to expert. Show your marble puzzle mastery with this fantastic maze building game! Kathleen votes this one as pretty much the "BEST THING EVER"!

Hungry for more Eight-Minute Empire? Think that conquest is more interesting on the backs of dragons? Eight-Minute Empire Legends is a high fantasy territorial control game that plays in less than the time it takes to suit up in your suit of armor. Players will constantly be making tough decisions between buying sets of cards that boost each other, advancing their board position or quashing the plans of others. This has been a much anticipated game, and we're glad it is finally here.

Determine the fate of Oxford college as you follow the college's history from medieval times to the modern day in Dreaming Spires. Players will lay tiles to complete symbols and create their own version of the college. By completing symbols, you'll be able to attract brilliant minds such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Oscar Wilde to their campus. Bolster the reputation of your college and compete against rival versions of Oxford in historical challenges to gain prestige for your school!

Golem Arcana might easily be one of the most impressive miniature games out there today. With a massive amount of possible customization, players are able to field Golem Knights, Blood Knights, and Ancient Ones and keep track of their stats electronically. The free Golem Arcana app takes care of all the bookkeeping and allows players to use passive abilities and special relics without tipping your hand to the opponent. If you love customizable miniature war gaming with a touch of technomagic, Golem Arcana is for you.

Do you find that a bottle cap doesn't evoke the terror of a dragon? Dungeons & Dragons Icons of the Realms: Tyranny of Dragons  breathes life (or charred fiery death) into your roleplaying experience with 44 models ranging from dragon-worshiping cultists to half-dragon fighters guessed it, dragons. Add new monsters and heroes to your adventure with the Dungeons & Dragons Icons of the Realms: Tyranny of Dragons Booster Box.
