In order to scratch out a living in this deranged universe, drivers will deliver goods and guns between the handful of settlements pockmarked throughout the hellscape that they call home and take on missions from the handful of factions still trying to hold onto the last dregs of civilization.

7052 Zombie House Blitz, GM: Jeremiah Lee, 4 players, No XP/Simple, Saturday 10a-11a. Speed card game in which players try to save members of their family from zombies by getting people (cards) out of the house (stack) and into the cars (points piles) to safety. Players don't take turns, but rather race madly to get their cards into the shared scoring piles in the center of the table. Family Friendly (7+) Ballroom Table 313. $2.00

2p

6330 Dead of Winter: Game with the Creator, GM: Jonathan Gilmour, 5 players, No XP/Simple, Saturday 2p-5p. One of the biggest hits of 2014, Dead of Winter has become one of the best "co-op with a traitor" games of all time. Here's your chance to play with one of the designers who helped show that sometimes your fellow survivors can be worse than zombies. General Audience (13+) Ballroom Table 301. $4.00

7032 Star Trek: Five Year Mission, GM: David Whitcher, 7 players, No XP/Simple, Saturday 2p-4p. Choose the classic Star Trek Enterprise NCC-1701 or the Star Trek: The Next Generation NCC-1701-D. ALERT! You and your fellow crewmates must cooperate to resolve dangerous situations that threaten to destroy your ship. Family Friendly (7+) Ballroom Table 414. $2.00

3p

6273 Smite: Unpublished Prototype: Smite, GM: Matthew Arnold, 4 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 3p-5p. Smite is a fast-paced wargame using no dice. Players resolve conflicts by drawing from their own bags of Discs. Smite is a game of deciding which conflicts to win and which to lose. War Discs have a distinct shape you can feel in your bag, so you can choose to pull one to attempt to win a fight. (War Discs are uniquely numbered to break ties.) Concede the conflict by drawing a Wealth or Politics Disc to strengthen your collection of discs. When you are too weak to win, choose when and where to fight, to force your opponents to squander their strength on the rewards which they need the least. When losing to an opponent would benefit them too much, bide your time by fighting with a non-player character, The Rabble. To win, collect the most Discs, and get the majority of forces in Territories containing the most Discs.

6271 Overworld, GM: Matthew Arnold, 4 players, No XP/Simple, Sunday 12p-1p. In every classic JRPG, the heroes encountered a mysterious stranger, who gave them a map to a dungeon, and stocked them with potions, keys, and other provisions. How was the map drawn? How did the wise stranger learn of all these dire warnings? In Overworld, you are the hero's mysterious mentor. All those years before you sent the hero to the underworld, you mapped the Overworld! By laying tiles, you will seek to claim regions of Forests or Mountains with your Bird meeples, and regions of Reefs or Whirlpools with your Ship meeples. When the tiles form a hole in the world, the player who explored the most tiles there will place a Dungeon Door meeple into the hole. Can you foresee uncertain spots in the geography, indeterminate in the distance? Will you uncover a dungeon... or wander the repeating pixel textures forever? Family Friendly (7+) Ballroom Table 422. $2.00

2p

6272 Engine Room: Unpublished Prototype, GM: Matthew Arnold, 4 players, No XP/Average, Sunday 2p-4p. Co-op deck-building, designing cards by sleeving stacks of transparencies. Players are engineers in the engine room of a Steampunk vehicle, flying, digging, swimming, and rolling across Junkyard World. The journey is represented by drawing slide transparencies ("slides") off a deck (the "Origin deck"), onto a track, and discarding them onto another deck (the "Destination deck"). Each slide which the ship encounters on the track is a machine part laying around in Junkyard World, which the crew could weld onto their vessel by sleeving it into a card in their hand. This gives the card additional instructions or victory points. It might also cover up blemishes which, if left uncovered, reduce the crew's collective score. General Audience (13+) Ballroom Table 422. $2.00

6334 Path of Light and Shadow: Game with the Creator, GM: Jonathan Gilmour, 4 players, No XP/Simple, Sunday 2p-5p. One of the biggest hits of 2017.
