rambo2Rambo: The Board Game is a thematic, cooperative, tactical, miniatures, scenario-based campaign game that allows 1-4 players to experience the events they remember from the film as well as embark on new, never-before-seen missions.

The game provides sealed “Self-Expanding” mission envelopes that gradually add to the game as each mission started and completed. Each mission tells a story and takes the players on a unique adventure to various locations to save POWs, escape a military prison, raid a jungle encampment, defend a secret air base, survive a treacherous jungle, and more! Missions unlock new equipment and tactics to help players customize their experience and allow for high replayability and great tactical strategy. Taking actions and engaging in combat is done without random dice, but with a card-based system in which the player is in control and where every choice can be life or death!

Visit them at Gen Con 50 and demo the game!

Sprawl Stories.front coverThe Sixth World is a place of danger and few places depict that danger better than Seattle. Where the sprawl expands, klic after klic, in all directions while trying to swallow the Emerald City. It ‘s the home to millions who struggle to survive the hazards of decaying neighborhoods and the scrupulous eyes of their neighbors.

Sprawl Stories contains four Shadorun novellas:

“Neat” by Russell Zimmerman
“DocWagon 19” by Jennifer Brozek
“Big Dreams” by R.L. King
“Blind Magic” by Dylan Birtolo
Each of these novellas takes  a look at life through the eyes of those that live there.  A burnt out mage is now searching for missing person – nothing can wrong there! Then a reporter goes on a ride-along with a high-octane DocWagon crew.  Hmm, something tells me to buckle up! Oh did I mention live on Trideo? Yeah, that’s a story for you. An ex-wageslaver gets caught between powerful forces while looking into his uncle’s death.  And a shaman must recover from an injury that threatens her way of life while extracting revenge on those who double-crossed her!
Yes the Sprawl is the wild side of Seattle. Are you prepared to walk in it?
