Osmos

Some describe Osmos as “Asteroids meets a lava-lamp,” others as “Katamari meets Lunar Lander,” but all have said it’s a game you must experience to appreciate. Your goal is to grow by absorbing smaller motes, but to propel yourself you must eject matter behind you, causing you to shrink. From this fundamental balance, Osmos leads the player through ambient playgrounds, deep solar systems, competitive petri dishes, dense mote-fields, and more.

Michael Schacht’s Gold!

From Michael Schacht, the award-winning designer of Coloretto and Zooloretto, a very clever set-collection game.

You start the game with a single donkey card and from there must adroitly swap, take, and (occasionally) steal cards in order to acquire highly-valued trios. The donkeys can be great when you’re prospecting for gold, but scoring them is worth negative points, so you must plan your moves with care!
