Stockpile: The Stockmarket Game of Insider Trading

Project By: Nauvo Game

Insider Information

Stockpile is a stock market economic game with a twist. As an inside trader, you will know what a couple of the stocks will do in the near future. You will try to bluff  your opponents into buying stock that is about ready to plummet, while you try to amass your wealth with the atypical buy low, sell high stock market strategy.

Not only do players have some insider information in the stock market, but there is also a stockpile mechanic. Players will bid on a stack of face up and face down stocks that were placed by all the players. Be careful as you bid on the stacks. There maybe  trading fees hidden in the stack that will be detrimental to your portfolio.

Diversify your portfolio or put all your eggs in one basket? The decision is up to you!

Shipping within the US is included. Check the shipping chart at the bottom of their Kickstarter page for all other shipping needs.

Strife: Legacy of the Eternals

Project By: V3G

Strife: Legacy of the Eternals is a two player card game that pits two opponent’s heroes in a battle for the lands to earn victory points for their master.

Each hero has two abilities, a Battle Ability and a Legacy Ability. The two decks of heroes the players possess are exactly the same; same heroes with the same abilities. It is your job to out maneuver and outwit your opponent to win the land and collect the points.

Strife also has a really unique tie mechanic. One of the two players will possess the D10 that represents a Fortune Stone. If a battle is tied, the player that holds the Fortune Stone will always lose. BUT, they can chose to pass the Fortune Die with the value raised by one to their opponent to win the battle. This is important, because whoever holds the Fortune Die at the end of the game will be able to add it’s value to their end game score! Than, the player with the most points, wins!

There is only a couple more days left in their campaign so hurry before you miss it!

Free shipping within the US. See the chart for all other shipping needs.

That’s it for this week! Hope everyone has enjoyed the show. Be sure to leave any comments and suggestions below, and ’til next week; Keep playin’ to be playin’!
