Plaid Hat Games announced the release of Quirky Circuits, the game of robot programming silliness from acclaimed designer Nikki Valens available for pre-order now, releasing this summer!
Two to four players help program a robo-buddy to complete a task before its battery runs out. But be warned, nobody knows what cards the other players have contributed. With 21 scenarios of increasing intensity, Quirky Circuits is guaranteed to provide hours of brain-bending fun!
Choose between four different robots to program. Each robo-buddy has unique movements with different goals they need to complete. Gizmo the vacuum cleans up dust bunnies wreaking havoc in the house, and Twirl’s garden can’t grow with the pesky ants stealing the seeds. Sparkee is a dog archaeologist on a mission to dig up exhibits for the museum, and poor Lefty has cats demanding portions of his finest sushi!
Players place programming cards face down, only knowing what types of cards their friends have played – movement, turn or quirk. Quirk cards must be played before a player uses any other card in their hand and every player must play at least one card per round. Using deductive reasoning, all players will move the robo-buddy around the board, trying to complete its mission!

Plaid Hat Games have a surprise in store for Crystal Clans fans! The Gem and Moon Clan are available now from their web store and available from retail stores shortly!
Units with the signature Crystal Force ability gain +1 attack for each crystal in any score area (including your opponent’s score area!) This ability can get some major attack bonuses for your army of nomadic artisans as they rack up crystals throughout the game. We’ll be exploring this ability and how it synergizes with other Gem Clan cards shortly in our previews, but rest assured it’s a very powerful tool to have on your side!
All hands on deck! The ghostly crew of the Risen Anabelle charge into battle! The Plunder ability is sure to give this clan the edge as their opponents struggle to keep enough units in their hands. Additionally, this clan will make great use of the Pirate and Reanimated keywords to give even more abilites to its units.

Recruit the finest disillusioned ne’er-do-wells to hold your territory, and purchase black market resources that’ll give you the edge. Be prepared to fight for what’s yours, because your opponents will muscle in on your territory. And don’t forget the cops, who clearly don’t have anything better to do than harass innocent business owners such as yourself.
The world may not think much of you, but in the back alley glow of the neon night, you can be a god.
