The quantity of each game is limited (shipping pallets of games from Taiwan to Germany isn't an easy task), so if you find any games that look fun to you, please come to grab a copy early. You may also PRE-ORDER to secure your copies!

Overview
"Sanzen-sekai no karasu wo koroshi, nushi to asane gam shitemitai" (translated as "I'd kill all the crows in the world to sleep with you in the morning") is an old song sung at a red-light district in the mid-1800s by one guest: Takasugi Shinsaku, a central figure of the early Meiji Restoration who lived a turbulent life. The saying means, "When a crow cries, I must leave this place. Even if I must kill crows all over the world, I want to stay with you a little while longer." The song expresses his longing for amorous time to be prolonged for even just a short while.

In the game Sanzen Sekai: I'd kill all the crows in the world to be with you a little longer, now titled Crows Overkill in its newest edition, players roleplay guests in a red-light district. Many birds gather in front of each player. The players must kill or move birds to prevent them from crying. If birds in front of a player cry, that player must leave the red-light district to go home (i.e. drop out of the game). The player who manages to stay in the red-light district for the longest time wins.

Overview
Taiwan Monsters Brawl is a game steeped in the rich cultural heritage of its homeland. From folklore legends and tales told in hushed whispers in remote villages, the monsters found within hail from the north to the south and everywhere in between. Shedding the more traditional horror elements, we've designed a game that is fun, culturally informative, and enjoyable for everyone.

Taiwan Monsters Brawl is a light strategy board game for 2-4 players. Players control different monsters and challenge each others' monsters to combat. The outcome of the combat is decided by rolling dice and exploiting the monster's Ultimate Power according to the runes available on the monster board, in combination with the spell cards. The monster with the most VPs will be the most monstrous of them all.
