Atlas: Enchanted Lands is an elegant card game set in a world of fairies and magic. Play cards to reveal a certain place and time — and place your stake in one of the two. Explore a location at dawn, day, sunset, and night, or see what the whole land looks like in the dark. Each card offers two choices, and it’s up to you to uncover the world that awaits.
Players are challenged to predict the Time or Place that will be uncovered first. Cards laid on the board will complete sets. Depending on the cards chosen by the players, sets of similar cards or numerically ascending cards will be revealed, granting points to the players that deduced the correct combination.
“There’s something elegant and beautiful about simple mechanics that still challenge the players to really think about their choices,” says Renegade President Scott Gaeta. “We’re incredibly happy to be able to pair J. Alex Kevern’s polished design with Beth Sobel’s delightful illustrations.”
Look for Atlas: Enchanted Lands at friendly local game stores and online Fall 2017. Atlas takes about 20 minutes to play and is for 2-4 players ages 8+ with an MSRP of $20. The box contains the following components:
64 Chips (16 per player)
4 Suit tokens

Ex Libris Releasing Fall 2017
San Diego, CA (June 1st, 2017) — Renegade Game Studios™, the premier publisher of innovative games will release Ex LibrisFall 2017. Designed by Adam P. McIver, Ex Libris challenges players to compete for the title of Grand Librarian. Art by Jacqui Davis (Bullfrogs, Dicey Goblins), reveals the magical land of curated collections.
In Ex Libris, you are a collector of rare and valuable books in a thriving fantasy town. The Mayor has just announced a new seat in the Village Council, Grand Librarian. The prestigious and lucrative position will be awarded to the citizen with the most extraordinary library! Unfortunately, several of your book collector colleagues (more like acquaintances, really) are also candidates.
To outshine your competition, you’ll need to expand your personal library by sending your trusty assistants out into the village to find the most impressive tomes. Sources for the finest books are scarce, so you’ll need to beat your opponents to them when they pop up – especially if they match your library’s secret focus!
You only have a few days before the Mayor’s Official Inspector comes to judge your library, so be sure your assistants have all your books shelved in time! She is a tough cookie, and will use her Official Inspection Form to grade your library on several criteria including alphabetical order, shelf stability, prominent works, and variety. And don’t think she’ll turn a blind eye to books the Council has banned! You’ll need shrewd planning, cunning tactics, and perhaps a little magic to surpass your opponents and become Grand Librarian!
“Many of us have fond memories of digging through the shelves of our public library, searching for our next favorite book,” reminiscences Renegade President Scott Gaeta. “Pairing this with a fantasy world filled with fun characters is brilliant. Adam has not only designed a solid game but he has also created a delightful world. We’re excited to share it with our fans. ”
Dig through the shelves of your friendly local game store this fall to find Ex Libris. Two to four gnomes, ghouls, gelatinous cubes and other players ages 10 and up will compete for the title of Grand Librarian over the course of a 45-minute inspection. Each carefully created game will contain the following components:
