Arcadia Quest

In Arcadia Quest, players lead guilds of intrepid heroes on an epic campaign to dethrone the vampire lord and reclaim the mighty Arcadia for their own. But only one guild may lead in the end, so players must battle against each other as well as against the monstrous occupying forces. Arcadia Quest is a campaign-based game for 2 to 4 players, where each player controls a guild of three unique heroes, facing off against the other players and the various monsters controlled by the game. Players need to accomplish a series of quests in order to win each scenario and choose where to go next in the campaign.

Zombicide

Zombicide is a collaborative game in which players take the role of a survivor – each with unique abilities – and harness both their skills and the power of teamwork against the hordes of unthinking undead! Zombies are predictable, stupid but deadly, controlled by simple rules and a deck of cards. Unfortunately for you, there are a LOT more zombies than you have bullets.

Support our 2015 Fundraiser!

After 79+ episodes, we have decided it's time to look to the future and take the Secret Cabal to the next level. As we talked about on the show, to move forward we need some funds to get thing done and get them done to the quality level that you've come to expect from our productions. We've decided to roll out a fundraiser initiative on Patreon.com. We love doing the show, it's so much fun for us and we're so happy about the outpouring of support you all have given us in the past. But we want to do more. MORE I SAY!

We're very excited about this becasue it means we're going to be doing more content for you guys to consume. Our first phase of the project will be doing a Fifth Wednesdays show! So when we have that week off when there's a fifth Wednesday, we'd plan to start releasing a new show thats a little different. We havent worked out the details of what it'll be yet, but it'll be founders talking about games  And hopefully if everything goes as planned, we'll do it more often. This isnt the only thing we'd like to do, there are lots of things we have swimming around in our brains for 2015. We'll keep you guys updated as to what we're planning as things move forward!

So anyway, if you guys are so inclined, think we're worth it and have the funds to spare, jump over to our fundraiser page at http://www.patreon.com/thesecretcabal and hook us up. 

Thank you all so much for your support in the past and going forward. I've said it before and I'll say it again you guys are the best people in the world and I'm proud to be part of this community.
