Game

This website is finally out of service.
I will return with a very limited subset of games (Splotter, maybe Adlung Spiele, Drei Magier Spiele, probably no more) fairly soon.

Thank you for your custom over the past 21 years! Yes, I started in 2003.
It has been a great thing to have done. The first online discount board games store in Australia & with a mission statement to lower the price of boardgames in Australia. I believe I achieved this aim.

I have enjoyed it, but it took over my life; even finding somewhere to live involved needing space for the stock. I am happy now to let it go.
I have made so many friends, both here & overseas. I now number some of the most respected games designers among my good friends.

In case anyone is interested, these are my favourite 4 games in no particular order:
Age of Steam (I have around 80 maps)
Tahauntinsuyu (republished as Incan Empire)
Last Will
Tzolkin (but boy do I suck at it!)

Keep an eye out. The site'll be back soon, & I may appear at your games group or convention - but as a gamer not a stall holder :)

This website began life as a php/SQL uni assignment!

From Dunwich to Innsmouth, from the halls of Miskatonic University to the Charles Dexter Ward at Arkham Asylum, trouble is in the air. The stars are almost right, and terrors from beyond space and time are beginning to break through. When Cthulhu rises, we're all doomed – but whose downfall will be the most entertaining?

Cthulhu Gloom takes the game play of Atlas' Gloom and puts a Lovecraftian spin on it. Each player controls a group of protagonists, and your goal is to make them as miserable and insane as possible – preferably with them dying quickly while your opponents' heroes remain sane and (at a minimum) alive. In the publisher's description: "While your characters Gibber With Ghouls and Learn Loathsome Lore to earn negative points, you'll encourage your opponents to be Analyzed by Alienists and to Just Forget About the Fungus to pile on positive points. When one group finally falls prey to the interdimensional doom that awaits us all, the player whose characters have suffered the most wins."

As in Gloom, the cards in Cthulhu Gloom are transparent, allowing you to stack multiple modifier cards on a character card to alter its stats or undo what an opponent has done to you. While Cthulhu Gloom can be played on its own or combined with Gloom and its many expansions, it does introduce two new types of cards:

• Story cards can be in play from the start of the game, and the first player to meet a Story card's conditions – e.g., drawing the attention of The King in Yellow or heeding The Call of Cthulhu – claims the card and gains its benefits (or drawbacks).

• Transformation cards mutate a character for the remainder of the game, no matter which modifiers might come its way later. What's more, the character's image is replaced with "something hideous and slimy". You'd expect no less really...
