After one hundred years in service, the Panama Canal is still is one of the most important and impressive engineering achievements in modern times.Built in 1914, the Canals opening hull designs were influenced accordingly, ships fell into three categories, those that could travel through easily and in groups (Feeder class), massive ocean going ships too big to enter the Canal (ULCV or Ultra Large ContainerVessels), and the new standard - designed to the maximum limits of the Panama Canal. These ships are called PANAMAX.In Panamax each player manages a shipping company established in the Colón Free Trade Zone. Companies accept contracts from both US coasts, China and Europe and deliver cargo in order to make money, attract investment and pay dividends. At the same time the players accumulate their own stock investments and try to make as much money as possible in an effort to have the largest personal fortune and win the game. Original game mechanics: chain-reaction moving (pushing) ships, dice/action selection, pickup-and-deliver along a single bi-directional route. Great player interaction with ships and economics. Unique game theme, timed with release for the 100th Anniversary of the Panama Canal this year.

We all would like that extra bit of income and for some, like it was for me, it is sometimes a necessity. How would it feel to spend more time being yourself and doing the things you love to do? To not have to worry about showing up at the job you dread every day or to simply have that extra $500-$5000 every month?

Corporation Incorporated is an interplanetary construction firm that builds sewer systems and low-income housing on the less-developed planets of the Galaxy. For years, Corp Inc. has tottered on the brink of bankruptcy: transporting building materials to the edge of the Galaxy, where the need for their services is greatest, is a risky business.The company was saved by a few visionaries on the board of directors.

Build your own space ship from the available prefabricated components, and fl y it to the Periphery.

Mike Daisey is a fierce storyteller, one minute hilarious, the next minute sweet, with a fine-tuned ear for digression. He circles in on his uneasy subject matter, closer and closer, until he exposes the raw heart. The New York Times calls him ´´the master storyteller´´ and he has been compared to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris. In these seven monologues, recorded before live audiences at New York´s Performance Space 122, Daisey tells true stories from his life that range from the terrible beauty of his rural Maine hometown, to shipping weapons to the Middle East, to the unintentionally hilarious dangers of defending free speech. Family is at the forefront in this monologue: aunts, uncles, grandparents, and drawing boundaries on what you can take from your family and what, ultimately, has to be given away. Aunt Linda has taste, but that doesn´t mean it´s good; the game of Furry Cockroach and its capricious rules are revealed; and we learn the terrible truth of Lucinda Moore and what happened at the 8th grade dance. 1.
