The Tang dynasty was considered the first golden age of the classical and now iconic Chinese gardens. Emperor Xuanzong built the magnificent imperial Garden of the Majestic Clear Lake as an homage of life itself.
Tang Garden is a Zen-like game that will take you to the first golden age of China, where players will progressively build a garden by creating the landscape, placing the scenery and projecting their vision through vertical panoramas. During the construction, noblemen will visit the garden to admire the surroundings and the way the natural elements coexist in the most breathtaking scenery humankind has ever laid their eyes upon.
About this project
2-5 Players 30-45 min Ages 14+
Shipwrecked is an exciting new game based on an original concept by Matt Kirby, the designer of the the worldwide hit family game Apples to Apples®. Shipwrecked is a fast, fun game of bidding, bananas, monkeys and mayhem.
Our extraordinary team of experienced designers, artists and illustrators have created an auction and set-collection game with a compelling theme, tight design, and top-tier art and components.
To ensure that we can produce a quality game that will reach you before the holidays, we’re working closely with a U.S. based printer: DeLano Services. We’ll be shipping cartons direct from the manufacturer to fulfillment centers in North America and Europe.
To complete, manufacture and ship this unique and exciting project, we need your help!
Your once proud ship is now a wreck on the shore of an uncharted island. And you are not alone: Battered and broken vessels litter the rocky shore. You and other survivors are all desperate to repair your ships and return to your homes.
Unfortunately, all the ships have been stripped of parts by a gang of motley monkeys, led by the wily Captain Coconuts. He’ll give you what you need - for a price! You’ll have to out-bid (and outsmart) the other castaways in the Captain’s auctions. Win what you need to rebuild your ship and you’ll sail away to victory!

Built on an original concept & gameplay mechanic by Matt Kirby, the inventor of Apples To Apples!
This is Matt's first game in over a decade, and he chose Elbowfish to develop and publish it!
Matt Kirby: “I am really excited about collaborating with the Elbowfish team. I have been working on new concepts for several years, and I have kept my eye out for the right publisher to bring my latest ideas to the gaming audience. David’s integrity, his passion for games, and Elbowfish’s innovative business model made it an obvious home for my new games.”
Adrenaline is a board game made to simulate a first person shooter, sort of. From left to right we have Dozer, Sprog (he's from Texas), Violet, :D-Struct-Or, and Banshee. I still need to put some sealer on, but I wanted to take pictures before that.
I'm not too happy with how :D-Struct-Or came out. He's a case of, stop before you aren't happy with the final product. However because I did him first, I was more sparing with the others and I think they came out ok. Good enough to look nice on the table top.
Thematic paint used (left to right): Military Grey, Alien Ooze, Witchcraft Purple, Beacon Yellow, Maggot White (its hard to be thematic with an alien octopus woman)
Bonus Thematic Paint: Violet's hair is MSP SAMPLE PINK, which I hate using because there is a limited supply, but it always wants to be used. I'm torn!
