Can you hide out long enough to make your way through computer purgatory in your quest to make peace with your own existence?

SNEAKY CARDS (PRINT-N-PLAY)
BY HARRY LEE, CODY BORST, AND MANY OTHERS
Sneaky Cards is part Pay It Forward, part Whose Line is it Anyway, and part Saw. Over 60 cards lay out different scenarios for you to deal with. Maybe you’ll have a green card that commands you to pre-pay for an item in the vending machine and then leave the card in the money slot. Maybe you’ll get one of the dreaded blue cards. There’s no better way to get to know the new coworkers than trying to convince one of them to, please, just listen to what this blue card says: trade me a hug for it.
Perfect for: Large communities, ultra-competitive households, casual Neptune’s Pride fans
Playtime: As long as friends are willing

Ever have that one where you’re falling? Yeah: that’s Skydrift, a seemingly endless, guided plummet from the heavens to the earth’s core. That it makes this journey so convincing on the tiniest of devices is tribute to the game’s sense of architecture, which interweaves the organic with the man-made. Ever have that one where you’re falling through a windmill made of glaciers? You will.
Perfect for: Skydivers, dream analysts, tilt-control aficionados
Playtime: Four medium-length plunges
