And we're live and going on Kickstarter!

We have three games that have just launched on Kickstarter, and they'll only be there for a week! Time Management: The Time Management GameTrick-Taking: The Trick-Taking Game, and Traitor Mechanic: The Traitor Mechanic Game.

Time Management: The Time Management Game, by Nat Levan, is a 1-4 player tile-laying game of puzzles and patterns. Each player takes turn playing cards as office cubicles, projects to be finished, or actions to rearrange the office, attempting to earn the most hours on the clock by completing simple and complex patterns... all while the other players attempt to disrupt them and finish projects of their own.

Trick-Taking: The Trick-Taking Game, by Bob West and Tovarich Pizann, is a card game for 2-4 players. The game takes place over 7 tricks of 7 cards each, with the winner taking all cards played and adding them to their repertoire. The final trick involves each player using cards that they've won across the course of the game, with the finest performance during the Ultimate Trick being the overall winner.

Traitor Mechanic: The Traitor Mechanic Game, Christopher Badell and Peter C. Hayward, is a social deduction game (using a traitor mechanic!) for 4-10 players, most of whom are loyal mechanics trying to complete three jobs and save the shop's failing reputation. However, some players just want to see the shop burn - if the auto repair shop ever runs out of money, the traitors win. Each round the boss chooses a job for everyone to work on, and players can either contribute parts or remove another player's efforts. If the job requirements aren't met, the shop loses money and the traitor (or traitors) gets closer to victory,

You can choose to get Time Management: The Time Management Game or Trick-Taking: The Trick-Taking Game for only $9, Traitor Mechanic: The Traitor Mechanic Game for only $19, or you can get all three for $37! We only need $4,116 to make these games a reality, but there's only a week to do it in. Don't wait one more minute to head over to the project and back it!
