Masks: Powered by Apocalypse World Long Con: 3 tables of up to 5 people each, with concurrent action taking place over two sessions. Set in Halcyon City, teenaged superheroes battle evil villains, and figure out who they are and want to be along the way. Creates stories like Teen Titan, Young Justice, and X-Men. Sign-up sheets at the registration desk.

Wheelhouse is a post-apocalyptic fantasy role-playing game set thousands of years after a cataclysmic event shattered the world of Mythren. A broken moon grins in the sky and the shadow of an ominous tower now looms over the last vestiges of civilization known as the Twelve Towns. Players awaken a character imbued with the consciousness of a long-dead hero. As a group, the characters are sent beyond the peaceful Twelve Towns and into the devastated "out-world" to serve a singular purpose given to them by the Wheelhouse. A gigantic and mysterious structure, the Wheelhouse is a lynch-pin tower that stands as the last link to the ancient world that was. This purpose drives the characters to act, but deep within is a greater need to discover who they were, who they are, and who they may yet be.

Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game is set in the Marvel Comics universe. Players choose a mastermind villain (Magneto, Loki, Dr. Doom, etc.), stack that particular villain's attack cards underneath it, then modify the villain deck as needed based on that villain's particular scheme. Players then choose a number of hero decks – Spider-Man, Hulk, Cyclops, Wolverine, etc. – and shuffle them together; since players use only a handful of hero decks out of the fifteen included, the hero deck can vary widely in terms of what's available.
