The Big Bang Theory – the clever game


Nürnberger Spielwarenmesse Part 5: In this game you try to help Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, Raj, Penny, Amy and Bernadette to get the things they want – like a mobile virtual presence device, a programmable robotic arm or a preserved snowflake. The special trick in this game: You can use the cards for two different colors and different values – depending in which direction you place them on the table. But be aware as Paradox Tokens can mess up the rules!

A new Mondo


Nürnberger Spielwarenmesse Part 3: No, that’s not the boardgame again but the new little brother under the same name. With modified rules and just 48 landscape tile you can already create the Mondo gaming experience. And if you already have the basic game you can combine both.

Mogul comes!


Nürnberger Spielwarenmesse Part 2: The card game Mogul got released the first time in 2002 by Spiele aus Timbuktu and received a lot of attention. Therefore the game got quickly under contract at Riogrande Games. Nevertheless it took over 10 years until the rerelease at Pegasus Spiele, now as enhanced boardgame.
