Cake Duel by Sizigi Studios

In Cake Duel players face off as commanders of a small Sheepie army. These sheep are ready to fight and are hungry for cake. The goal of the game is to relieve your opponent of all of their delicious cakes. The game takes strategy and bluffing mechanics, and condenses them into an easy, quick-to-play format. Each players deck of Sheepie can be fully customized, so you can use your favorite Sheepie when you play. The game is also pocket-size for easy transportation, which fits well with all of the Sheepie cuteness.

Are You Mental? by Robert Turk

2ac627b73258f11c68def4ac238e50e7_originalAre You Mental? is a unique tabletop RPG where being crazy is all part of the fun. Players assume the roles of lunatics who seem to believe they are super heroes with super powers. They escape the asylum and go on crazy adventures together. The game uses a mad lib style process for character creation, where players will write answers for 4 specific questions and then swap those answers with their fellow players. Those answers will help to fill in their unique character sheet. The game also allows (and encourages) you to use any kind of dice you can find, and they really do mean any kind. Each player will get a set of 5 dice that are randomly selected, so you could end up with a crazy combination of dice. The game includes two decks of cards: The Challenge Deck and the Deck of Really Bad Things. When players attempt to do something in the game, the Challenge Deck will tell them what they must accomplish with their dice and the Deck of Really Bad Things will hold their fate if they should fail. This will be an easy pick up RPG, that will be easy to learn and quick to setup.
