Cogs in a Machine

Make Cogs, Steal Cogs, Upgrade, Quarrel, Win!




Gnomes, assemble! The factory needs your skills on the assembly line. Press your luck and roll dice to build parts and assemble components. Just be sure to finish your work before the others.

Of course, your co-gnomes may try to Supervise your work, but be warned: they won't have your best interest at heart. After all, it's every gnome for themselves when you're a cog in a machine!

As featured in the PAX South Tabletop Indie Showcase 2015, the Boston Festival of Indie Games 2015, and at the PAX Prime Indie Megabooth 2015.

Note: Due to the discontinuation/limiting supply of indented dice, smaller flat dice are now included instead to prevent issues with the game being limited by stock.
