Board Games Showcase:

Ironrise Games:
- Ironrise - A highly thematic story based game where players take either a villain or a hero, and both sides attempt to overcome challenges on a path to victory. Challenges are played against the other team, and the core mechanic centers around adverse card play (done secretly).

The Nerdologues:
- Fisticuffs - A free-for-brawl fighting card game for four to six players where they engage in head-to-head (-to-head-to-head) constant combat until the frenzy peaks and one player emerges victorious.
- Unnamed games in super beta! Check them out in their REALLY early stages!

Cards Against Humanity
- Decks will be on tables around the bar for casual enjoyment.

Orange Machine Games
- Abandon Planet - is the new smarty party game from Don Eskridge, creator of The Resistance and Avalon. It's about escaping the meteor apocalypse, and using your friends and enemies in the best and worst ways to do it.

- The Resistance - A party game of social deduction inspired by Mafia/Werewolf, yet it is unique in its core mechanics, which increase the resources for informed decisions, intensify player interaction, and eliminate player elimination.

. . . and more to be announced.
