Our games

Lux et Tenebrae

In a dark cathedral, a mage harnesses the power of demons to enhance her spells. In an alchemical laboratory, a diviner inscribes a scroll of destruction. Meanwhile, a bard and beastmaster seek out the prismatic dragon and golden lion to keep the forces of darkness at bay.

Lux et Tenebrae™ (light and darkness) is the first Res Arcana™ expansion.

Lux et Tenebrae expands Res Arcana to 5 players, adds a new artifact type – demons – and introduces scrolls: special one use powers that can be gained one round and saved for future rounds. New mages, magic items, monuments, places of power, and artifacts further expand the game.

Res Arcana

In Res Arcana, 2-4 alchemical mages vie for control of ancient monuments and places of power. Use your magical essences and items to build artifacts, activate their powers, and command dragons. The mage with the most victory points wins!

Designed by Tom Lehmann and richly illustrated by Julien Delval, Res Arcana offers a unique gaming experience. Available now in English and French.
