Carrotia

Carrot supplies are getting low and the rabbits must brave the wilds to collect enough to feed the colony! Time is short, the pathways long and the birds are circling overhead, looking for easy prey.

Carrotia is a light co-operative, tile placement game for 1-6 players where the team collectively works together against a timer to build three different mazes of increasing size. 

The master rabbit needs to dash from entrance to the exit within a specific number of moves according to the current mission card, scooping up the precious carrots while avoiding the owl, hawk and other birds as they swoop low over the zones causing mayhem and mischief.

Although the task may seem daunting, the master rabbit has some supporters, other rabbits that bring a unique special ability to assist the team and and thwart the hungry predators!

The Cohort
It is time to polish your armor and sharpen your sword, for mighty Caesar has called for his legions to assemble.
 
The Cohort is a fast-paced card game for 2-6 players in a race to be the first to assemble a Legion and show Caesar you are the greatest of his commanders.

Legions are composed of 3 different Cohorts, each made of one of seven different types of units: Praetorians, Catapults, Centurions, Sagittarii, Equites, Legionaries and Velites. During a turn, you draw two cards, keep one and give the other to a player of your choice. You can keep that card in your hand or trigger it and create a Cohort. Be careful though, for the troops are rowdy! Until a Cohort is complete their behavior works against you.

So snap them into line as quickly as you can, disrupt the plans of your fellow commanders and show Caesar that your Legion is the greatest in all the Empire.
