So you think you know Machi Koro?

No spoilers, so all we can say is the story is a tale of [redacted] based on the Japanese [redacted] that was created with input from Nobuake Takerube, and co-designed by Rob Daviau, the father of the legacy gaming system.

What I really like is that when Machi Koro Legacy is finished it's still a game...I can play over and over again.
Tom Vasel, The Dice Tower

In Machi Koro Legacy you play through ten different games in a story-driven campaign where player choices shape the game as you play. No two games will be the same! Throughout the campaign, elements are added into the mix that will make you shriek with delight and think on your toes. Over time, an emergent narrative comes into focus, explaining this strange and mystical land that you all have stepped into. This culminates in an infinitely re-playable eleventh game that will be completely unique!

Tom Vasel Raves About Machi Koro Legacy 


Ready, set, Puzzle!

Mental Blocks is a frenetic 3D puzzle game like no other. Players must work together to solve 3D puzzles before time runs out!  Each player has their own secret perspective to the puzzle, but everyone has a restriction: Some players can only touch certain blocks, others cannot speak. Variable levels and time limits make for family fun or game group brain burning.


There really isn't a game like Mental Blocks.
Tom Vasel, The Dice Tower

Every person has a restriction: some players can only touch certain blocks, some can only touch certain shapes, some cannot speak. This leads to delectable disarray as player scurry to solve each puzzle in real-time to graduate to the next puzzle - each ramping in difficulty as you proceed.

Mental Blocks features two different modes (Family or Challenge) to fit everyone's tastes!

  • Mental Blocks is great fun. Have you ever considered having an online version of this game? It does not appear it would be difficult to do. And it would allow people to play during Covid.

  • My family has played the first two games. We are all enjoying it. So far the kids (ages 11 & 9) have each one a game. My wife and I have gotten close but no wins yet. Thanks for a great game!
