Epic is a fantasy card game that aims to recreate the trading card game experience from a single, non-collectible box of 120 unique cards.
You are a god at war! The cards in your deck are your champions, who fight for you; and events, which represent your will imposed on the mortal realm.
You begin the game with a hand of five cards; each card either costs one gold, or is free. You get one gold each turn — you don’t need to draw and play special cards just to play other cards. You only have to decide which cards to play.
Each player has 30 health. You lose if you lose all your health, or if you can’t draw a card from your deck.

On every turn, you get to draw and place a new terrain hex, representing more exploration of the rainforest. You also get 10 action points, with which to move, make new camps, explore temples, excavate a new level of a temple, collect treasure, exchange treasures with another player, or even post guards to lock a temple down (this last option can only be done twice per game). Each action’s cost ranges from 1 to 5, so you have many combinations of actions to spend your 10 points on every turn.

The Six Million Dollar Man is a race-to-the-finish game. Each player plays a bionic man who is lent to various government organizations for missions. But only one is the real Six Million Dollar Man. Players will run their bionic man through 4 assignments to be tracked on the game board. During each mission, players will spin the spinner to move and use power cards to fight their rivals, or accomplish missions. The first player to race through all 4 assignments is declared the REAL Six Million Dollar Man and wins the game.
