No Honor Among Thieves from Carpe Omnis Games is a competitive/cooperative card game for three to six players, in which each player assembles a crew of thieves and sets out to see who can steal the most lucre from the rich and powerful of a fantasy city. Working alone is difficult, but working together leaves you open to treachery by your so-called allies–or gives you the chance to betray them, and take it all for yourself. An unspoken code of honor exists among the thieves of this city, but that won’t last past the first betrayal, and once that uneasy trust is gone the game gets more dangerous as players gain access to additional underhanded abilities.
The rich and powerful of the kingdom keep their wealth safe behind barred doors and armed guards, but you know a guy who’s good with locks and another who’s good with his fists. Or you know someone who can climb like a monkey, and someone else who could charm the fangs off a snake. How you do it is up to you. The important thing is that there’s gold there for the taking, and you’re going to take it all.
Assemble your crew. Make your plans. And make sure to keep a careful eye on everyone else, because everyone knows there’s no such thing as honor among thieves.

Terrinoth needs champions.
An ancient Bloodguard sows discord in the Free Cities, the dead rise from their graves in the Mistlands, and the realm turns its eyes to you in search of a savior. Here, you have the chance to embody one of Terrinoth’s greatest heroes and venture into the depths of treacherous dungeons to confront the dangers that lurk beyond the reaches of the light.

Z-Man Games is happy to announce Pandemic: Rising Tide, the next title in the new Survival Series of Pandemic games!
Following the widely popular Pandemic: Iberia, the next game in the Survival Series, Pandemic: Rising Tide introduces players to an entirely new way to enjoy Pandemic. It is the dawn of the Industrial Age in the Netherlands. For centuries, the country has relied upon a series of dikes and wind-powered pumps to keep it safe from the constant threat of flooding from the North Sea. But this system is no longer enough.
As the next game in the Survival Series, Pandemic: Rising Tide continues the hallmarks of the series. Each game enjoys a strong resemblance to the original Pandemic while uniquely adapting them to a new locale. On the lakes and polders of the Netherlands, the threat is not from diseases but from the water itself. With land becoming more and more scarce and water levels rising by the day, a modern system is needed to stem the rising tide.
In Pandemic: Rising Tide, it is your goal to avert tragedy by constructing four modern hydraulic structures in strategic locations that will help you defend the country from being reclaimed by the ocean. Storms are brewing and the seas are restless. It will take all your guile to control the flow of water long enough to usher in the future of the Netherlands. It’s time to get to work.
