Bookquake!
A game for 1 or more quietly prepared bibliophiles

Setup: You need a 52 card deck with 2 Jokers and a timer (stop watch)

Goal: Be prepared! As a member of the LAPL (Los Angeles Public Library), you and your team need to practice regular drills in case the Big One strikes and earthquakes your stacks. In order to do so, you and the other players must assemble suited runs (A-5, 6-10, or a trilogy J/Q/K all of the same suit) as quickly as possible while still adhering to the golden rule of the library: SILENCE.

Play: Shuffle the deck and spread out the cards facedown messily over the table. Start the timer. Once the timer has started, players may pick up cards from the table into their hands. A player may have a maximum of 5 cards in their hands at any time, but may discard cards face down on the table in order to draw new cards. There are no turns, but play continues as players assemble completed runs. The required runs must be of the same suit and must be either A-5, 6-10, or a Trilogy: J, Q, K. When a run is finished, it is placed face up to the side and that player may draw new cards.

Remember, this is still a library, so there is to be no talking and players may not show cards to other players.

Jokers: When a player finds a Joker, there is an aftershock! Each player sets aside their hand and shuffles the face down cards around on the table. While the cards are being shuffled, players may speak normally and discuss what they have in hand. Remove the Joker face up with the completed runs.

Mastery: Once all of the runs have been completed, the drill is over! Record your time. Attempt to beat your fastest time, or compete versus another group to see which team of Emergency Librarians can save the day!

N-VELOP
A light speed card game for 2+ players
N-Velop is a card game based on the classic arcade genre of “Maze-Racers” AKA games like the light cycles from TRON. In it, players race to play their entire deck of cards, without crashing into other players or running off the table.
Components: Every player needs a standard deck of playing cards and there needs to be a playing surface (Like a kitchen table). You may consider reducing the number of cards in the deck or the playing size of the table if it seems like it would be more fun.
Goal: To be the first player to play your entire deck onto the table, or to be the last remaining player.
On Your Mark, Get Set, Go: 
To start, each player plays one card face-down anywhere on the table. Cards are always put face-down so that only the backs are showing. After a countdown, play begins simultaneously.
N Velop does not have turns like regular card games, instead players play their cards to the table as quickly as possible. Golden rules for playing cards is as follows:
Cards must be played so that one edge of the card is next to the edge of your previously played card.
You can not overlap with any other card. This includes your own cards as well as your opponents. If you do so, you lose the game. In case of an “overlap tie” the player whose card is on the top of the overlap loses the game.
Cards must be placed entirely on the table. You can’t have any part of a card hanging off and edge of the table.
Players who have lost do not remove their cards until the end of the game.
Cards may be jostled during game play, but these rules mostly apply to cards as they are played.
Game Over:
If a player plays all of their cards, they win the game. If no player can legally play a card, the player who has played the most cards wins.
—-Try it out! I’d love feedback and any/all suggestions or criticism. This game is under development for The Game Crafter’s Classic Arcade Challenge: https://www.thegamecrafter.com/contests/classic-arcade-challenge
