Alliance Open House: Giveaways! (Part 1 of 2)
Check out some of our giveaways for the Alliance Open House, both Alliance product and special promotional items! We'll be showing more giveaways on this blog next week!
Alderac Entertainment Group - Trains
Manage Modern Railways! The railways of today are amazing things and bullet trains, freight trains, and more keep entire countries running. From transporting the populace to carrying essential materials, trains play an integral part in a nation's power and economic development. In Trains, players start with a small set of cards, but by building a more effective deck throughout the game, they will be able to place stations and lay rails over the maps of Osaka or Tokyo. Gain enough points from your railways and you will ultimately manage the most powerful railroads in modern Japan! This English Edition of Trains, designed by Hisashi Hayashi, features updated graphics, artwork, and streamlined card abilities. With extensive replay value, Trains is one game you won't want to leave the station without!
Atlas Games - Gloom 2nd Edition
In the Gloom card game, you assume control of the fate of an eccentric family of misfits and misanthropes. The goal of the game is sad, but simple: you want your characters to suffer the greatest tragedies possible before passing on to the well-deserved respite of death. Play horrible mishaps like Pursued by Poodles or Mocked by Midgets on your own characters, while trying to cheer your opponents' characters with marriages and other happy occasions. This second edition of Gloom features sturdy new packaging, rules fixes, timing icons, reminder cards, and more.
