Fable: On Your Table
Fable on your Table is a downloadable, print-and-play miniatures game where you take on the role of an adventurer and plunge into a dungeon trying to complete an objective.
Play out the battles with papercraft miniatures you cut out and assemble, guided by the companion web app that procedurally generates the dungeons you explore. When you complete a quest, you level up. Level up five times to ascend and win the game!
A very unique game here, folks. Tired of the glut of Kickstarter games featuring minis and $100+ price tag as a result? You aren’t alone! Now with Fable on Your Table, you can make your own papercraft minis to use as you adventure through randomly-generated dungeons. This game seems like it takes some of the best aspects of a game like Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-Earth and makes it accessible and printable for folks to play. If you like having technology as an integrated part of gameplay, this one is sure to strike the right chords with you in the dungeon crawl territory.
Restore The Mona Lisa of the Galilee, an ancient mosaic, in this one-page dice-drafting roll-and-write game.
Folks are getting clever. Too clever for their own good. If you ever played a roll-and-write game and found yourself wishing the game had dice drafting...well, that specific dream is coming true here. A simple game in terms of rules, that can support up to 5 players and requires you to provide some dice in multiple colors, a bag to randomly pull dice (blindly) from, and markers or pens for each player. It is a clever little game with some tougher decisions than your standard roll-and-write, and features some delightful polyomino shapes to fill in as you go!
Universal Rule: Singularity and Solo AI
The war rages on. Alliances are forming and breaking faster than you can decide which side to align with. The new themes of meanies (direct player to player aggression) will quickly help in your decision making. You can work on taking over the universe together, but in the end, only one can rule.
It isn’t often that you see a 4x game in compact format, much less done in 18 cards. But the Universal Rule has remained a popular entry, and its newest expansions are available. Don’t have the original game? No worries, Singularity is all you need to play! Don’t have 2-4 opponents? Again, we’ve got you covered here with an AI to face off against in a winner-takes-all competition to score the most points. Both offer smooth decision making, a chance to follow actions and maximize your economy, and tough decisions on whether or not you want to (or can win via) battle against an opponent. Not for the faint of heart, but if you’ve always steered clear of games like Twilight Imperium or Eclipse due to the setup/teardown/play time, this might just be your perfect alternative.

Game of the Week: Roll Estate
Roll Estate is a love letter to the classics, where you’ll roll and write your way to wealth in a race to become the richest entrepreneur! Roll the dice three times to acquire loads of rental property, open bold new businesses, try your luck with some risky investments, and perhaps even win the lottery! Can you turn five dice into cool cash?
When you think classic, what comes to mind? If the answer wasn’t Roll Estate, it will be after you play this one. Capitalizing on the popularity of roll-and-writes isn’t a bad thing, right? This game has a definite classic feel while also being fresh, fun, and challenging to players. The best thing is that it can be played alone, or with up to 5 others, and has several options for score sheets. With a relatively small rulebook, you’ll be up and rolling in no time!
