The Miskatonic School for Girls
Miskatonic School for Girls is the first deck-building game in which you get to build your opponent's deck. This unique feature creates a totally different play dynamic from other deck building games.
MSFG has players assuming the roles of rival houses at Miskatonic. Each house has a healthy level of sanity at the beginning of the game. As the game goes on, that precious sanity will slowly be torn away by the faculty of the school.
In order to combat the bad teaching methods of the Great Old Ones, the students of the house need to band together!
During your turn, you'll buy your new friends with friendship points and use nightmare points to send faculty after the rival houses.
Eventually, those Faculty will end up in a player's hand, where they will hold class, teaching your innocent students about the horrors around them. This has a detrimental effect on your house's sanity.
Due to the overwhelming power of the dark truth, it's just a matter of time before your house goes completely bonkers. The last house left with any sanity wins!
Our first order of this game sold out in one day! We have more copies of the game available now!

|The Inkwell Awards |
Inking is the art of enhancing an illustration through the means of redrawing pencil lines with ink and its related tools.
This enhancing, or 'ink editing', would elaborate in the areas of, but not limited to, weight, space, depth, definition, contrast, texture, composition and design.
The Inkwell Awards promotes this often overlooked and under-appreciated art form by serving as a source of education for inking and recognizing excellence and achievement of individual artists working in the field of comic book sequential illustration.
Ernie is volunteer Legal Counsel for The Inkwell Awards.
Rumble in R'lyeh
Just when you thought it was safe to pick up the controller...just when it seemed the time for cardboard tubes was at an end...the dread elder god Cthulu rises from his slumber in the sunken city of R'lyeh, and he's not playing games!
Penny Arcade The Game: Rumble in R'lyeh is a complete game, but it's also an expansion to the hit deckbuilding game of 2011, Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil.
Players can easily mix the two sets together for the ultimate crazy ride through the sublimely bizarre world of the Penny Arcade web comic.
Explore Gabe's Gross Mouth, harness the dubious power of Bono Trask: Timesqueezer, and fall under the curse of TouchWeiners' dark double: the Were-Swan.
We also have the original Penny Arcade Game in stock!
