Board and Card Games

Friday

6482 Evolution w/Flight and Climate Expansions - CANCELLED, GM: Norman Leon, 0 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 2p-5p. In Evolution, players adapt their species in a dynamic ecosystem where food is scarce and carnivores lurk. Traits like Hard Shell and Horns will protect your species from Carnivores, while Long Neck will help Herbivores acquire food others cannot reach. With over 4,000 ways to evolve your species, every game becomes a different evolution. The variety comes from the synergies between trait cards and player personalities at the table. Some players thrive on creating Carnivores to wreak havoc on their fellow players. Others prefer to stay protected and mind their own business with Herbivores. Evolution encourages both play styles and provides many paths to evolutionary "King of the Jungle" victory. Evolution: Flight, an expansion for Evolution, introduces avian species into the gaming ecosystem. Now your species can swoop on unsuspecting prey from above, fly away from predators, or soar to new locations when food is scarce. Will your species ability to fly propel you to new heights? Or will it bring your downfall? Play and find out! Evolution: Climate changes Evolution from a two-dimensional game dealing with the threat of Starvation and Carnivores, into a three-dimensional game dealing with the threat of Starvation, Carnivores, and Climate effects while increasing the vividness of the game's evolutionary theme. For more information, click on BBG webpage on Evolution below or watch a How to Play video from the game publisher: BGG on Evolution: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/155703/evolution NorthStar Games on Evolution: https://youtu.be/yzXcE-JD5qM General Audience (13+) Ballroom Table 423-424. $4.00

6821 Valeria: Card Kingdoms - CANCELLED, GM: Tim Ealy (Oakland County Gamers), 0 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 2p-4p. The land of Valeria is under siege by hordes of monsters. You and your fellow Dukes must recruit citizens and buy domains to build up your kingdoms and slay the foul creatures that lurk in the surrounding lands. Valeria: Card Kingdoms is a tableau-building game that will feel familiar to deck-building fans. On your turn, roll two dice and activate citizen cards while other players will simultaneously activate their citizen cards based off of that roll. Next, take two actions from the following: slay a monster, recruit a citizen, buy a domain, or take 1 of any resource. The player with the most victory points at the end wins the game. Will include new Flames and Frost expansion. General Audience (13+) . $2.00

6188 Metamorphosis Alpha: Red Shirts Victorious--cancelled, GM: Larry Hamilton, 0 players, No XP/Average, Friday 9a-1p. The security team, awakened from stasis, has dealt death and destruction on the mutants. The mutants have sent their best to take revenge. General Audience (13+) Conference H Table 6. $4.00

6474 Fiasco: Tekumel: A Vindication of Instability - Cancelled, GM: George Hammond, 0 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 9a-1p. Fiasco is inspired by cinematic tales of small time capers gone disastrously wrong – inspired by films like Blood Simple, Fargo, The Way of the Gun, Burn After Reading, and A Simple Plan. You’ll play ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control, big dreams but flawed means. It won’t go well for them, to put it mildly, and will probably end in a glorious heap of jealousy, murder, impalement and recrimination. Lives and reputations will be lost, painful wisdom will be gained, and if you are really very lucky, your character just might end up back where he started. This is a GM-less game. We will use a playset custom-made for Tékumel . Players are not expected to have any experience with the Fiasco rules, but should have some familiarity with the Tékumel setting. Adults Only (18+) Seminar 5. $4.00

We have a plan: one that will get us out of this filthy dungeon and perhaps revenge on those that have spent a lifetime of abusing us. General Audience (13+) Seminar 3. $4.00

6457 Dungeon Crawl Classics: The Perilous Pantry of Nebin Pendlebrook--cancelled, GM: Wyl Majure, 0 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 3p-7p. "In a quiet, mostly pleasant little village, there lived a quiet, mostly pleasant little halfling, who dug a little too deep when digging out a new pantry...." The Perilous Pantry of Nebin Pendlebrook is a 0-Level funnel adventure that is perfect for all ages of gamers eager to learn what Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG is all about. It's also a perfectly fun time for those DCC old hats that just want to have a good ole time. General Audience (13+) Conference E Table 8. $4.00
