Recent Website Outages

After about a week of stability, we would like to apologize for the recent outages for the past two weeks.  Out provider also passes on its apologies as they had some major problems on their side and they continued onward for us even after they thought they had us fixed.  JustUs is endeavoring to make changes to ensure this won’t happen again.

We sincerely apologize and look forward to seeing you at MACE West.  All things should be working on and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

About Warmachine

WARMACHINE players take on the role of warcasters as they lead their titanic forces into battle. Warcasters possess significant martial prowess of their own as well as having hardened warriors and magical spells to bring to bear. Players collect, assemble, and paint fantastically detailed models representing the varied warriors, machines, and creatures in their armies. WARMACHINE is fully compatible with its feral twin, the monstrous miniatures combat game of HORDES.

About Hordes

HORDES players take on the role of warlocks as they lead their wild forces into battle. Warlocks are formidable combatants in their own right, and their armies make use of both hardened and brutal warriors and packs of savage warbeasts, allowing them to contend on equal footing with the greatest armies of the Iron Kingdoms. Players collect, assemble, and paint fantastically detailed models representing the varied warriors, minions, and beasts in their hordes. HORDES is the feral twin of the steam-powered combat game of WARMACHINE, and the two are fully compatible.

MACE West 2016: Special Guest GM: Mike Yow

Mike Yow will be joining us at MACE West 2016 to run his fantasy RPG, Savage Kingdoms.

About Savage Kingdoms

Savage Kingdoms is a tabletop RPG from the mind of actor and game designer Mike Yow, creator of the StarQuest and Elfstone live-action systems. Inspired by the works of Robert E. Howard, George R.R. Martin, and J.R.R. Tolkien (among others), SK focuses on storytelling and immersive role-play all in a detailed sword-and-sorcery setting nearly thirty years in the making. Still in its Beta phase, SK has been play-tested in home settings, game shoppes, and recently at Dragon*Con in Atlanta. Coming soon in softcover and PDF downloadable formats!

8th Summit Games & Richard Launius at MACE West 2016

8th Summit Games will run (per request) Agents of SMERSH, Till Dawn, and Coven and will actively run Gods of Adventure and Run Fight or Die. Richard Launius (designer of FFG’s Arkham Horror) should be coming with them as well, so he`ll be running prototypes of Saving Time and Defenders of the Last Stand. See OGRe for details.

About 8th Summit Games

8th Summit publishes original board and card games. Since 2012, with our first title “Agents of SMERSH” by 8th Summit President and game designer Jason Maxwell, 8th Summit has received three industry award nominations and worked with several well known designers, including Richard Launius and Wolfgang Kramer. By the end of 2015, 8th Summit will have more than tripled revenues, and will have published more than ten boxed games and expansions.

Run, Fight, or Die!

The undead hordes are back! But this time they’re not miniatures shambling around a modular board – the zombies are coming straight for you! As in most zombie games, you represent a unique character with your own character traits, except in Run, Fight, or Die! you will also have your own individual board with zombies you alone will encounter. Zombies move closer to you every round. You run from location to location, searching for weapons and survivors in a desperate attempt to stay alive. Survivors may bring new skills to help you in your desperate fight for survival, or in some cases, new challenges to overcome. In either case, every survivor provides you victory points. The game ends either when one player finds five survivors and declares the last round, or when a player reaches the town line (and the total Followers in play meets a minimum), or if a player gets bitten and turns. Be careful, some followers may turn against you, while others can slow you down. When it comes right down to it, the choice is simple: Run, Fight, or Die!

Scoring is based on the total points of survivors and remaining health of the players’ characters.

Run, Fight, or Die! is a frantic first person experience for 1 to 4 players (will play up to 6 with the 5/6 player expansion). The game is loaded with goodies, including 4 Action Boards, 5 Character Boards, a Loot Deck, a Location Deck, an Event Deck, a Follower Deck, Mutant Deck, 7 Custom Dice, tokens and beautifully crafted miniatures.


Gods of Adventure

By Richard Launius

In Gods of Adventure players take on the roles of classical Gods who together influence the motivations and emotions of a group of eight fantasy adventurers, slaying creatures and overcoming obstacles. However, unlike many Richard Launius games, Gods of Adventure is not a coop.

The game plays either 3 or 4 players. Every God’s (player) deck is identical except for color and another small but important detail: the spoken words on the cards for each hero (divided by color) are all different, reflecting your temperament based on the God you are playing. Each player will have a unique power associated with your temperament. The four temperaments are associated with Greed, Good Fortune, Aggression, and Deceit.
