MiniSkull Game Series

MiniSkull Games is a series of small-box (minuscule) games that feature unique mechanics, interesting decisions, 60 minutes or less play time, and a shared theme and setting.  MiniSkull games feature fantasy adventure, quests, dungeon crawls, and combat.  Games are set in The Petite Kingdom, around the town of Port Tiny, the haunted MiniSkull Castle, and the lands around MiniSkull Mountain.

Games are currently in various stages of ongoing development.

MiniSkull Quests - A fast playing, press-your-luck adventure game with some light take-that player interaction.  Send a party of Heroes on a quest to the MiniSkull Mountains to collect Treasure, Artifacts, Weapons, and gain Skills, but be careful of Monsters, Disasters, and other obstacles.  Also beware your opponents!  They’ll try to disrupt your plans every chance they get!
Components: 179 cards, Custom Dice: 6 d8, 2 d6, and 1 d10 
2-5p | 45m | 8+

Les Petits Pirates could easily be rebranded MiniSkull Pirates - A mini sized action selection, dice manipulation pirate game. Features a very small footprint (maps can be as small as a postcard), lots of player interaction, and asynchronous action resolution. Plunder, attack, and sail the seas and be the first to bury enough treasure to enjoy a decadent pirate retirement! 1-5p, 20-60 minutes

MiniSkull Castle - Heroes explore MiniSkull Castle, searching for loot in the castle rooms while being chased by monsters.  Unique dice allocation mechanics provide interesting decisions.  The game is competitive while also offering opportunities to cooperate.  A solo mode provides an exciting experience.

MiniSkull Dungeons - Roll & Write your way through the MiniSkull Dungeons, collecting gold,
treasure, weapons, and more.  You’ll control both a Hero and Monster on every player’s turn, while other Heroes and Monsters also roam the dungeons.  Hidden movement means you’ll never know where the other characters are, until a Reveal spell is cast.  Then you better hope you’re not where the Monsters are!
Components: 1 map, 5 custom d6 dice, a pad of player sheets, 5 screens, 10 meeples, pencils

MiniSkull Crews - (Formerly Heroes & Rogues, Out for Gold) A micro action-selection and set-collection game with a bit of deduction.  Compete to create a team of adventurers by choosing actions from character cards on the table.  Exchange one character from your hand with one on the table, taking the action of the newly acquired character.  The object is to build a team of characters with the same Elemental Affinity (color) and/or Race (symbol or suit) in your hand.

MiniSkull Caverns - A diceless dungeon crawler!  Search the caverns under MiniSkull Castle for
valuable gems while avoiding Tiny, the guard dragon.  Featuring a combination of action selection (using a rotating action card and player selection control card), and combat against both Monsters and opponents using dice with secretly chosen modifiers, the unique mechanics provide many opportunities for player interaction, bluffing, and deduction.

MiniSkull Adventures - Still in early development, this will be a semi-cooperative sandbox adventure style game.  Heroes will work together to save the town of Port Tiny from the evils of MiniSkull Mountain, while going on adventures to gain experience, helpful items, learn spells, and more in preparation for a final battle against the MiniSkull Monster.

MiniSkull Slayers - MiniSkull Slayers is a semi-cooperative game about heading out and hunting monsters.  Together players will form a band of travelers trying to gain the most fame and fortune.  With elements of press-your-luck, dice driven combat, and fun rewards, weapons, and monsters to fight, you’ll have a grand old time ridding The Petite Kingdom of its vermin.
Status: Idea Phase

MiniSkull Explorers - Using triangular tiles, players will create paths through The Petite Kingdom searching for the lost Tiny Temples.  The game includes pattern building, puzzle solving, story telling, and even dexterity elements as players explore in ways that complement their character's unique abilities and traits.
