Another week, and another way to spend your money. Three ways, specifically. Two of the games come to you from primate-named companies. How weird is that? Let’s take a look!
THE STYGIAN SOCIETY, BY APE GAMER
Legendary designer Kevin Wilson (Descent, Fury of Dracula) is back with a new game—a cooperative dungeon crawler! Players take on the role of different warriors, who fight their way up a wizard’s tower, one level at a time. It looks super fun! Check it out!

BEE LIVES, BY MATT SHOEMAKER
If you’ve ever see The Bee Movie, you’ll know that bees have Jerry Seinfeld’s voice. It’s science. You’ll also know they’re incredibly important to our world. Designer and beekeeper Matt Shoemaker has brought his love of these insects to a Euro game. You’ll be swarming, raiding other hives, hoarding your honey, and defending your hive. And have we mentioned they have Beeples?! (I don’t think that’s what they’re called. I made it up, but Matt’s welcome to use it…)

War for Indagar, BY happy gorilla game Studio
One of the traditional problems of 4X games is that they take a long time to play. War of Indagar claims it takes place in just 2 hours. This 2-4 player game features four distinct factions vying for control of the land. It comes with a boatload of chits, wooden resources, tiles, and dice. AND MINIATURES! It’s already funded, and on its way to funding monster miniatures. Check it out and see if you can help make that happen.
Pricing: $79 plus shipping

Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend!
