BUY ONE OR BUY ALL 18
Here's a great way to get a great price! The more you buy the cheaper the price per game. That makes sense, but what if you don't want all 18 games? Go in with your friends! You and your friends can make one pledge and divide the games up when they arrive.
ALL OUR GAMES
Here’s a quick rundown of what our games have in common. “Have in common?” Correct, we use similar mechanics for our games, tweaked to fit the specific genre and time period. Similar mechanics, but different games! This means:
- Moving from game to game is easy, as you already have an idea of the basics of playing the game.
- All of our games are designed to be played solo. Our game mechanics for solo play are the best and not an afterthought. You can also play cooperatively, with everyone on the same side, or head to head against your friends.
- All have a light Campaign system, where the results of one game can affect the results of the next.
- Each game has light bookkeeping which tracks how well or badly you’re doing over your career.
- Our AI plays the Non-Player Characters or Forces, whether friend or foe, so you only control yourself.

Aces Up - WWI Fighter Combat
Aces Up – WWI Fighter Combat is a fast play card game that recreates the Dogfights of World War 1. The game is easy to play, but tough to master. Luck will play its part, but the decisions you’ll make are more important. Knowing when to Head Home, use your Bonus Dice, or when to go Purely Defensive, can be the difference between gaining Fame & Glory or ending up in a smoking death spiral.

All Things Zombie - Casino Carnage
Casino Carnage is based on the Origins Award winning All Things Zombie miniatures game. We’ve taken the best of the miniatures game and added some board and card game elements to give you a fast play, yet challenging Zombie game. The game will never play the same and has unlimited replay ability. Casino Carnage can be played solo or cooperatively against the game as well as head-to-head against your friends. That’s when the opposing player runs the Zombies, Ragers and Non-Player Survivors. When the last Building Card is drawn, the players go head to head. What happens next is up to them!
Charioteers of Rome
Your goal is simple. Race for Fame & Glory in the Circus Maximums – Rome’s ultimate chariot racing venue – and achieve your freedom. Charioteers of Rome starts you off far, far away from Rome. But if you build your Driver well, win races and increase in your standing, you can make it to Rome itself. It’s chariot versus chariot where the game controls all of your opponents, unless you choose to race head to head against your friends. Totally playable solo with rules for a Campaign with a simple way to gauge how well, or bad, you’re doing during your career.
Dead Heat - Zombie Racing!
Dead Heat is a lighthearted racing game set in a post-apocalyptic future where Zombies aren’t as much a menace as an inconvenience. It’s about the survivors, utilizing the undead as a diversion from their dreary day to day existence. But most of all it’s about having fun while having your tongue firmly in your cheek. The Zeds start the race behind the starting line and your job is to “bait” them towards the finish line – first across the line wins! And the cool thing is, no Zombies are hurt during the racing, although we can’t say the same about the “baiters”. Play as a “baiter” or just bet on the races, yes, you can do that. Dead Heat puts new meaning to “a day at the races”.
Friday Night Fights - Boxing Game!
Friday Night Fights puts you in the ring with non-stop fast action unlike any other boxing game you’ve ever played. With Friday Night Fights you start from scratch and build your Fighter the way you want. Make him a “boxer”; with quickness and speed, or a “slugger”; with a devastating knockout punch, it’s up to you. Once you’ve created your Fighter it’s time to start his climb up the ladder to success. You start out on the bottom, fighting journeymen Fighters with bad records and limited abilities. Slowly you climb, honing your skills as you struggle to the top of the heap. Like all THW games, there’s a light bookkeeping system to track your success, or lack of!
Hell Hath No Fury - WWII Tank Combat
Hell Hath No Fury is a set of tank combat rules that focuses not only on the vehicle, but its individual crew members. You’re the Tank Commander of one of eleven American or German tanks. Each tank has a full crew of 4 or 5 individuals, each with specific jobs to make your tank perform.

Red Streets, Blue Mats - Mixed Martial Arts
As you sit in the locker room, your mind races remembering old arguments: “Wrestling is better than Boxing”, “Kung Fu beats Karate”; “Your Martial Arts ate weak, mine is strong”.

Win or Go Home - Auto Racing
Traditional racing games are all dice and mice. Players roll dice and move their vehicles from square to square around a track, for a few laps and call it racing. This makes for boring stretches of movement interrupted by short bursts of action. And, it often takes a long time to run one race. What is needed to recreate the drama and action of real life racing, is a different approach; and that's what Win or Go Home brings to the table. With Win or Go Home, you are part of the Pack of Cars where what’s important is where you are in relationship to the other vehicles. Every turn, you have to make decisions about passing or being passed, pit stops, drafting other Cars, tire wear and performance loss. You’re always involved during every turn and things can change quickly. You might start the turn in last place, but end it in first! Totally playable solo, but great fun for the casual gamer as well. Win or Go Home is perfect for those game nights at the house with friends or at the game store.
Wire to Wire - Thoroughbred Horse Racing
Since man first climbed astride a Horse, there has been Horse racing. Wire to Wire brings the excitement of thoroughbred Horse racing to you in two different ways. If you are a “hands-on” kind of guy, you can play as a Jockey, riding one Horse, making all the decisions necessary to win the race. For a change of pace you can play as a handicapper, betting on each race while the game mechanics run the race. Wire to Wire can be played solo, you against the game, head to head against your friends, or a combination of both, with some Horses ridden by players and others by Non-Player Jockeys controlled by the game mechanics. Great fun for the casual gamer as well, Win or Go Home is perfect for those game nights at the house with friends or at the game store.
Here are the Stretch Goals. If we run out of Stretch Goals, we'll add more, and more and more...
Risks and challenges
I've been writing and producing games for almost 20 years. I've fulfilled numerous Kickstarters, but how does that affect this one? It doesn't; but what does, is we have samples of every game we're offering. Our print company has been used for numerous Kickstarters and is ready to go on this one.
We've no other Kickstarters in the place and we will not run another Kickstarter until this one is fulfilled!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
