It’s that time of year again.
Black Friday, the first “official” day of the holiday shopping season, is in less than one week. We know some of you are making lists, checking out deals, and planning your approach to one of the busiest shopping days of the year, so we wanted to give you a heads-up on what we’re planning for this Friday and Saturday.
We’re having a sale.
I know, that’s not really all that unique. This year, like last year, at Jupiter Games, you will determine your discount. By rolling a die.
On Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, your discount will come down to a die roll.
So, how is this going to work? Well, it’s pretty simple. You bring up the items you’re going to purchase. We give you a D20. You roll it. That number on top? That’s your discount.
This whole roll-a-die-and-get-a-discount thing is per purchase, not per item. You’ll give us the items you wish to purchase, we ring ’em up, you roll your discount and… done. No rerolls. No adding or removing items from the purchase after the discount roll. Want to grab some more stuff? That’s awesome and definitely encouraged, but you’ll need to re-join the line at the back.
Also, no one likes a critical fail, so we’re capping the minimum discount at 5% off. That means for each purchase your discount will be between 5% and 20%.
And now, the fine print:
- First off, this sale is on all in-stock, purchasable items only so there will be no additional no discounts on event entry.
- Secondly, there will be no additional discounts applied to preorders and special orders (but the standard 10% off will still apply).
- Finally, this sale does not apply to the sale of Magic: the Gathering Booster Boxes as our everyday price on these is already discounted by 20% or more off MSRP.

The land of Ethnos contains twelve tribes of fantasy creatures, and in each game you choose 6 of them , 5 in a 2/3 player game, then create a deck using only those creatures in those tribes. The cards come in six colors, which match the six regions of Ethnos. Place three glory tokens in each region, arranging them from low to high. Each player starts with one card in hand, the 4-12 cards are placed face up in front of you. On a turn, a player will recruit an ally or play a band of allies. In the former case, you take a face-up card (without replacing it from the deck) or the top card of the deck and add it to your hand. In the latter case, you choose a set of cards in your hand that match either in tribe or in color, play them in front of you on the table, then discard all other cards in hand. You then place one or more tokens in the region that matches the color of the top card just played, and you use the power of the tribe member on the top card just played. The player with the most glory tokens wins!
Over the course of 8 rounds, build the best theme park whatever it takes! You can combine your favorite themes from pirates, ninjas, robots, and many more. Watch out though, competitors may pay off the safety inspectors to close your rides or hire hooligans to vandalize your park! You can play event cards to help yourself or hinder your opponents, building and upgrading using park cards, and match your park to blueprints. Your goal is to build the highest-scoring park at game end by either: matching your park to the blueprints, build tall attractions with lots of upgrades, or old fashion cash.
You belong to a group of dwarves who just discovered a new mine on their land, and in the excitement of the discovery, you make a bet. Everyone will explore the mine for five days. At the end of each day, you will sell in the city the crystals you extracted during this day. At the end of the fifth day, the dwarf who earned the most money will become the only owner of the mine, the winner. Each turn a player has three actions: extract a crystal (pull a crystal from the bag), play a card that either aids you or hinders your opponents, and leave the mine and cash in. This is new to us.
You are a dalek invading Earth to EXTERMINATE the humans! Each turn, you roll the 10 custom dice. The number of humans you roll is how many points you’ll earn at the end of the turn, but only if you roll as many dalek dice. You can push your luck and re-roll some of the dice to try to roll more Humans or more Daleks, but all the time you must be careful not to roll too many Doctor symbols – if you accumulate too many you’ll lose the game and score nothing! This is new to us.

Help Purrrlock get closer to the bewhiskered baddie that’s been bullying all of Baker Street! Each player draws a hidden suspect card. Payers take turn making guesses using a “clock” mechanism about their unknown suspect’s identity. Figure out enough leads to deduce the suspect’s identity, and you get to snag a clue that leads to Furriarty. Each clue is labeled with a variable number of victory points. Every round, Furriarty pads his way closer to escape, putting tension on the players to guess to solve the case. If you can deduce enough suspects and collect enough paw print tokens, you may be able to overtake Furriarty before he scrams.

Welcome to the Dungeon
A game that is a push-your-luck dungeon delve. 2-4 players take turns essentially daring each other to go into a dungeon with less equipment than they start off with while filling the dungeon with monsters. Each player has a 2-sided players card that has a white side and a red side. The first win taps the player card and the 1st loss flips the card over to the red side. A 2nd loss will have the player turn the card back into the box. Each round, the start player (the person who challenged the dungeon last or the last player to be in a dungeon) can choose to draw a card from the monster deck or pass their turn. The game ends when someone has won twice or one player is the last man standing. The Cool Part: This was first released as Dungeon of Mandom. The difference between the two is that Welcome to the Dungeon includes four different sets of character cards whereas Dungeon of Mandom has only a single character.

On each turn, you select two tiles from hand, reveal them, then work with your partners separately to place one of those tiles into each of your two cities before passing the remaining hand of tiles around the table. At the end of the game, each city is scored for its livability. Your final score is the lower of the livability scores of the two cities you helped design. To win, you have to share your attention and your devotion between two cities. The player with the highest final score wins the game.
