Create your own garden with Topiary – our new game of the week!

Topiary is a light-weight abstract strategy game, in which players try to position their garden visitors in such a way that they can observe at once as many topiary sculptures as possible.

This way, visitors can see the plants closest to them, and the ones behind if the size permits it. You can score bonus points for visitors who see multiple topiary sculptures of the same type. Players slowly fill in the garden by adding tiles until everyone has placed all their visitors. Build your beautiful botanical creations, line up your visitors – and may the best gardener win!

Just landed – Condottiere

A fresh re-release of a 1990's strategy classic with a new twist! Find yourself in 13th century Italy, the renaissance cities bubbling with life, trade and wealth.

The provinces are auctioned off each round, and the players bid with their

(Federal Authority for the Interdiction of Transdimensional Horrors). The team of heroes is divided into different classes,
