Head to District 9 in this epic board game!

District 9: The Board Game is a competitive 2 - 4 player game that lets players relive the sci-fi classic through a whole new perspective. Taking on the role of a faction from the District 9 world, players vie for control of the district and its technological resources by interacting with the local population, iconic characters, and each other. The game unfolds over the 3 days in which the film’s events take place. Players begin by setting up various district tiles to create a dynamic game board. A variety of different-shaped district tiles allow for the board to be unique each play through. Players then set up their starting tile at the edge of the district, simulating where they have strategically chosen to enter. Using orders to move their units around the board, and cards to augment their abilities, players lead their faction in a bid to salvage the biggest stockpile of alien technology. As the competition heats up, the unrest in District 9 escalates. Wikus’ actions during the prawn evictions, and the ensuing man-hunt, drive the stakes higher and higher until the climactic finale: when Wikus dons the prawn mech suit for his heroic last stand. The player who can weather the chaos of battle, and salvage the most alien technology, is declared the winner. The game will take up the average gaming session at between 60 to 240 minutes, so it is best enjoyed as the main focus of the session!

Become a mighty hero in Gloomhaven!

Gloomhaven is a tactical combat game in which each player takes on the role of a mighty hero. Players then work together to clear out dangerous dungeons and fight fearsome foes. In the process they will discover loot and improve their abilities. Each session follows on from the last one, leading to a campaign and over-arching plot. Each copy of Gloomhaven is laden with a ton of awesome game pieces including minis and cards. Essentially, every turn a player will play two cards out of their hand. Each card has a number at the top, and the number on the first card played will determine their initiative order. Each card also has a top and bottom power, and when it is a player’s turn in the initiative order, they determine whether to use the top power of one card and the bottom power of the other, or vice-versa. Players must be careful, though, because over time they will permanently lose cards from their hands. If they take too long to clear a dungeon, they may end up exhausted and be forced to retreat. The game supports 1 to 4 players and takes around 1 to 2 hours to play.

Each copy of the game includes the following:

  • 1 rulebook
  • 1 scenario book
  • 1 map board
  • 47 monster stat sheets
  • 30 map tiles
  • 24 plastic stands
  • 18 character miniatures
  • 17 character boards
  • 17 character pads
  • 6 monster stat sleeves
  • 4 HP/XP dials
  • 4 sticker sheets
  • 4 sealed envelopes
  • 1 elemental infusion board
