7 wonders Card game revised...

7 Wonders is a card development game. Some cards have immediate effects, while others provide bonuses or upgrades later in the game. Some cards provide discounts on future purchases. Some provide military strength to overpower your neighbors and others give nothing but victory points. Each card is played immediately after being drafted, so you'll know which cards your neighbor is receiving and how his choices might affect what you've already built up. Cards are passed left-right-left over the three ages, so you need to keep an eye on the neighbors in both directions.

Jaipur card game

Jaipur is a fast-paced card game, a blend of tactics, risk, and luck where you are one of the two most powerful traders in the city of Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, but that's not enough for you because only the merchant with two "seals of excellence" will have the privilege of being invited to the Maharaja's court. You are therefore going to have to do better than your direct competitor by buying, exchanging, and selling at better prices, all while  keeping an eye on both your camel herds.

Resistance Coup Card game

In the political card game Coup, you want to be the last player with influence in the game, with influence being represented by face-down character cards in your playing area. Each player starts the game with two coins and two influences – i.e., two face-down character cards; the fifteen card deck consists of three copies of five different characters - Duke, Assassin, Contessa, Captain, Ambassador - each with a unique set of powers. On your turn, you can play the character, regardless of which characters you actually have in front of you, or you can take one of three other actions: take the coin, take two coins or launch a coup against an opponent, forcing that player to lose an influence. If you do have the character in question and choose to reveal it, the opponent loses an influence, then you shuffle that character into the deck and draw a new one, perhaps getting the same character again and perhaps not. The last player to still have influence wins the game!

Schotten Totten card game

In Schotten Totten, nine boundary stones lie between you and your opponent. In front of each, you build poker-like formations of three cards aside. Whoever plays the higher-ranking formation wins the stone. And in a unique twist, you may use your powers of logic to claim a stone even before your opponent has played all three of his cards, by demonstrating that the stone is impossible for him to win. Successfully claim five stones, or any three adjacent stones, and you win the game.

Welcome to the Dungeon card...

Welcome to the Dungeon is a push-your-luck dungeon delve in which Players take turns essentially daring each other to go into a dungeon with less equipment than they start off with while filling the dungeon with monsters. Players can win the game by winning 2 rounds or get eliminated from the game by losing 2 rounds. Each round, the start player (the person who challenged the dungeon last or the last player to be in a dungeon) can choose to draw a card from the monster deck or pass their turn. Once only one person is left after all the other players have passed their turn, that player then becomes the challenger and must go into the dungeon with only the equipment he has equipped. The player then flips cards off the dungeon deck and fights the monsters within. If the player survives the dungeon with at least 1 HP, they win that round. If not, they lose. The players then reshuffle cards to make a new monster deck and re-equips the equipment to start a new round.

New cards called Mysteries, which have a dark blue effects bar at the bottom, are also shuffled into the deck before play. (Source - Boardgamegeek.com)

Gloom: Unwelcome Guests...

Guests expansion adds one player and 55 cards to the game. New effect icons on cards allow their special effects to continue to be active even if covered by another card. An effect ends only when the attached character is killed. Also inside are five Unwelcome Guest cards. Deal one or more face up to the table’s center at the start of the game. Guests “follow” the card types noted on them; no matter where it currently is, a living Guest immediately moves to join the family of the character on which one of its “trigger” cards is played. All its Modifiers are moved with it, and it’s considered a member of that family until it moves again. This may delay the game’s end if a final play draws a Guest to the near-winner’s family.
