ABOUT POCKET MADNESS

As followers of ancient myths, guided by dark and promising rumors, you survey the most disturbing locations, each more unsettling than the last, in search of clues. Gathering enough of them will allow you to open portals to see these obscure worlds… unless you would prefer to publish your research, plunging your opponents into madness.

You must be careful, though, because you are meddling with powers that are beyond you, and it could be you who is first to fall, once and for all, into madness!

Maintain your sanity longer than your opponents, because the least crazy cultist wins the game!

Goal of the game
You must get rid of all your Location cards as quickly as possible, by melding sets of identical cards or sets of different cards, in order to avoid descending into madness.

Course of the game
The game plays out over several rounds, during which you must avoid descending into madness. At the end of a round, if any player has accumulated 10 Madness tokens, the game comes to an end, and the player with the fewest Madness tokens wins the game.

HOP! is a game for 3 to 6 players in which you have to climb in the sky faster than your opponents!

Climb cloud to cloud in order to be the first to reach the top of the sky. Each challenge you face is another chance to rise higher in the sky. But, helping other players also earns you rewards.

Numerous challenges can be met only by helping or being helped by the other players. Be clever and you will gain levels, but choose your partners wisely in order to limit the points they gain alongside you. As soon as someone reaches level 7, the game comes to an end, and the player with the most points wins the game!
