Victory and Defeat

At the start of the game, the Invaders are at Terror Level 1 - not really afraid. To win, you need to completely clear the board of Invaders. As you earn Fear cards, you will reach new Terror Levels with easier victory conditions. You win immediately anytime you meet the current victory condition.

You can lose three ways:

  • Too Much Blight: If the last Blight comes off of the Blight Card, you follow the instructions there, which are often "you lose". …


The peaks of Snowdonia rise before you encased in mist, their summits barely visible. The highest is Snowdon (Wyddfa) herself at 1,085 metres. The year is 1894, and the Snowdon Mountain Tramroad and Hotels Company Limited has been formed to build a branch line from Llanberis to the summit. You can scarcely believe it's possible!

In Snowdonia, players represent companies providing labour for the construction of the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Unlike other train games you will have to excavate your way up the mountain-side, as well as make and lay track, construct viaducts and stations. …


Before the game, deal four Heroes to each player. Choose one of your Heroes to keep and pass the other three face down to the player on your left. Choose one of the three Heroes you receive and pass the other two to your left again.

Repeat until you have chosen four Heroes. Finally, select three of those Heroes to use and discard the fourth from the game. Repeat this process with the Duel cards, but this time pass the extra cards to your right. …


  1. Choose tickets you think you can finish. Remember also that big routes are much harder to complete in a 4-5 player game.

  2. Avoid telegraphing where your routes are going because others can block you easily.

  3. Claim the critical routes first. If you need a one-train leg, get it as soon as you have the card.

  4. Block other players if you can. Spending your turn to block someone don't gain much points, but else your opponent scores much more points if he can complete his route. …


In Two Rooms and a Boom there are 2 teams and 2 rooms. The 2 teams are the Blue Team and the Red Team. The Blue Team has a President. The Red Team has a Bomber.



Players are first equally distributed between 2 separate playing areas (usually 2 separate rooms) and then each player is randomly dealt a facedown character card.

Players play the game by saying what they want in order to select a leader for their room. The leader chooses hostages (players who will be sent to the other room at the end of the round). …

Sentinel Wood

Earn one reputation star for each forest space adjacent to the edge of the map.

Druids planted these towering ranks to shield us from something in the wilds beyond.

Trains cannot be bought by any player until the "Trains may now be bought" event has occurred. Once this event has occurred the Build action may be used to buy a Train.

If a player decides not to pay the upkeep for a Train (see Resolving Events), return the Train card to the Engine Shed.

A player may not own more than one Train. A player can return a Train card to the Engine Shed during a Build action when buying a different Train. Put more Coal from the Supply Bag (if available) on the returned Train card, as indicated on the card. …


Dark Moon is a team-based game of paranoia and betrayal. The Uninfected team simply needs to survive until the end of the game, while the Infected team wants nothing more than to destroy them. Each player will know which team they are on but will not know which team the other players belong to. Who is your teammate and who is your enemy?

Dark Moon is different than other hidden traitor games in that the traitor's destructive actions take place publicly for everyone to see, rather than behind a hidden veil. Good acting and solid deception skills are invaluable, and traitors with poor poker faces will quickly be revealed. Because of this, the game can seem unbalanced toward the Uninfected team at first. …


In the neon-bathed city of Hong Kong, a grisly murder has taken place. You and your fellow Investigators arrive at the scene of the crime to discover that the culprit has left important clues. From among the suspicious objects scattered around, you must deduce the "Means of Murder" and identify the "Key Evidence" in order to catch and convict the killer.

As if solving a murder wasn't tricky enough, this one is complicated by the fact that the killer is among the Investigators! While the Forensic Scientist gives Investigators clues on what to look for, the Murderer attempts to sow confusion and doubt in order to cover their dark deed. …
