6941 T.I.M.E Stories: The Marcy Case, GM: Randolph Williams (Contessa), 4 players, No XP/Simple, Saturday 10a-2p. Perhaps you've heard of it: a unique "decksploration" cooperative gaming system with limited-to-nonexistent replayability. Sure, you can buy a new module, but what to do with a scenario once you've already played through it? You host an event, that's what; at least that's what I'm doing. So if you've balked at a $65 price tag for a "one-time" use game, come experience the adventure without the major investment! I'm choosing to host The Marcy Case, the second module in the series. The base game includes Asylum, so if you enjoy this enough to buy it, you still have a full fresh experience with the base set (and can choose whether or not to purchase the Marcy module). "We have now mastered time travel, but faults and paradoxes threaten the very fabric of the universe. The T.I.M.E. Agency has been created to prevent their appearance and protect humanity. As temporal agents, you and your team will be sent into different worlds or realities, into the bodies of other beings (or “receptacles”). You will control these receptacles to fulfill the missions given to you. Communicate and collaborate to triumph over the perils standing in your path. Carefully observe the scenes shown on the board before acting. Complete your mission as quickly as possible. Know that you can attempt the mission as many times as necessary." ~ Bob Some mature themes and content. No spoilers from me! General Audience (13+) Conference C Table 6. $4.00

6385 Inis, GM: Jason Miller, 4 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 11a-1p. Inis is a game deeply rooted in Celtic history and lore in which players win by being elected King of the Island (Inis). Players can try to achieve one of three different victory conditions: Leadership: Be the leader — i.e., have more clan figures than any other player — of territories containing at least six opponents' clans. Land: Have your clans present in at least six different territories. Religion: Have your clans present in territories that collectively contain at least six sanctuaries. Over the course of the game, players also earn deeds, typically chanted by bards or engraved by master crafters, that reduce by one the magic total of six for any condition. While one victory condition is enough to claim the title of King, a game of experienced players usually has a tight balance of power, emphasizing the leadership of the capital of the island. At the start of each round, players draft a hand of four action cards (with 13 action cards for three players and 17 for four players) during the Assembly. Action cards not played at the end of one season are not held for the next. Players also have access to leader cards for the territories that allow it and where they were elected leader during the assembly. Each Assembly reallocates those cards. Finally, they collect "epic tales" cards that depict the deeds of the ancient Irish gods and heroes, like Cuchulainn, the Dagda, Lugh and many others. These will be kept and used to inspire the clans and achieve extraordinary feats...under the right circumstances. The cards provide a variety of actions: adding clans, moving clans, building/exploring, and special actions. Careful drafting, hand management, bluffing (especially once players understand the importance of passing their turn), good timing, and a precise understanding of the balance of power are the keys to victory.

The four characters are allied in pairs: Lord Fiddlebottom and Colonel Bubble are always partnered against Agent X and Madame Zsa Zsa. Each of the four agents is represented by one of four different figures, with different builds: tall, short, fat, thin. Only one of them represents the actual character controlled by a player. The other three figures represent spies which are friendly to him and that are trying to confuse the opposition. There is another character with an important role in the game: the Ambassador. He can be used to get clearer information about the other characters. Everyone wants to meet him because he is well-informed and can be useful to accomplish your purposes, but he can also help your rivals, so do everything you can to keep him far from them.

The warrior who will remain loyal and will betray at the right time is the genuine hero of this game. In Dungeon Busters, the players take the role of heroes exploring dungeons and defeating monsters in search of treasures. In order to defeat a monster, every player simultaneously plays a power card face-down then reveals the values. If two or more players play the same value, they are all ignored. If players are defeated the player who played the lowest value should return some treasures as a penalty. If players succeed to defeat the monster, players can divide rewards but the player who played the lowest value will go first. Family Friendly (7+) Ballroom Table 425. $2.00

At the start of each turn, you roll six dice, which show the following six symbols: 1, 2, or 3 Victory Points, Energy, Heal, and Attack. Over three successive throws, choose whether to keep or discard each die in order to win victory points, gain energy, restore health, or attack other players into understanding that Tokyo is YOUR territory. The fiercest player will occupy Tokyo, and earn extra victory points, but that player can't heal and must face all the other monsters alone! Top this off with special cards purchased with energy that have a permanent or temporary effect, such as the growing of a second head which grants you an additional die, body armor, nova death ray, and more.... and it's one of the most explosive games of the year! In order to win the game, one must either destroy Tokyo by accumulating 20 victory points, or be the only surviving monster once the fighting has ended.

6171 Dune, GM: Eric McGlohon, 6 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 7p-11p. Set thousands of years in the future, Dune the boardgame is based on the Frank Herbert novels about an arid planet at the heart of the human space empire's political machinations. Designed by the creators at Eon, of Cosmic Encounter fame, some contend that the game can best be described as Cosmic Encounter set within the Dune universe, but the two games bear little in common in the actual mechanics or goals; they're just both set in space. Like Cosmic Encounter, it is a game that generates a lot of player interaction through negotiation and bluffing, but that can be said of numerous unrelated games. Players each take the role of one of the factions attempting to control Dune. Each faction has special powers that overlook certain rules in the game. Each turn, players move about the map attempting to pick up valuable spice while dealing with giant sandworms, deadly storms, and other players' military forces. A delicate political balance is formed amongst the factions to prevent any one side from becoming too strong. When a challenge is made in a territory, combat takes the form of hidden bids with additional treachery cards to further the uncertainty. The game concludes when one faction (or two allied factions) is able to control a certain number of strongholds on the planet. General Audience (13+) Ballroom Table 305. $4.00

Players then can move and take actions either on Galactica, on Colonial 1, or in a Viper. They need to collect skill cards, fend off Cylon ships, and keep Galactica and the fleet jumping. Each turn also brings a Crisis Card, various tasks that players must overcome. Players need to play matching skill cards to fend off the problems; skill cards that don't match hinder the players success. Fate could be working against the crew, or there could be a traitorous Cylon! As players get closer and closer towards reaching their Earth, another round of loyalty cards are passed out and more Cylons may turn up. If players can keep their up their food stores, fuel levels, ship morale, and population, and they can keep Galactica in one piece long enough to make it to Earth, the Humans win the game. Beware!

6858 Sub Terra: Print & Play Version, GM: Randolph Williams (Contessa), 6 players, No XP/Simple, Saturday 10p-12a. Sub Terra is a 1-6 player cooperative game of terrifying cave escape. Players take the role of amateur cavers attempting to escape an unexplored network of subterranean tunnels. You’ll need to work together to overcome deadly hazards-- stick together for safety, or split up to cover more ground. One wrong step could knock you unconscious and your friends will need to stage a rescue. Players each have a role which gives them specialist abilities, such as an Engineer with dynamite to blast a new route or a Scout to find a route more easily. New cave tiles are placed from a randomized stack, which determines whether you'll be hit with a dead end or a range of new options. At the end of each turn, players face the reality of their situation, with a hazard card drawn to determine what danger causes them damage or cuts off their way out of the horror below. These cards are finite, and when they run out, your torches flicker, the air feels tight, and your chance of survival diminishes quickly. Light and hope are scarce. And worst of all, you don’t think you’re alone down here... Can you survive Sub Terra? General Audience (13+) Conference C Table 6. $2.00

6110 Paragraph System: Merlinspawn, GM: David Vandenabeele, 5 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 9a-2p. Merlinspawn is set in Victorian England in 1876. Three or four generations ago, Merlin of Camelot returned to London, and magic came with him. Hand in hand with that, revolutions in industry and science began. In the century since this flowering, the world now sees alchemists and diviners working for Scotland Yard. Magical courses being taught at prominent universities, and feats of invention that seem almost magical themselves are becoming visible, if not commonplace. To keep the realm safe, Queen Victoria and her representatives have gathered together people of diverse talents. You are one of these heroes. Perhaps you are a gentle adventurer, possessing mundane skills honed to incredible levels. The gift of magic may be yours to command. You may be a being of legend, gifted (or cursed) with abilities that make you more (and perhaps less) than human. Invention and science may be your gift - or your curse, if what you create works only in your hands. So far, I have among our PC cast a golem, a shapeshifter, several immortals of various stripes, two or three half or full-blooded Fey, more than a few "mundane" adventurers, a handful of magicians with various specialties, a pair of mediums - each with their own relationship with the spirits of the dead, and a few scientists - an animator, a master of etheric engines, and a four-armed cyborg who cheats at cards.

6111 Paragraph System: Merlinspawn, GM: David Vandenabeele, 5 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 7p-12a. Merlinspawn is set in Victorian England in 1876. Three or four generations ago, Merlin of Camelot returned to London, and magic came with him. Hand in hand with that, revolutions in industry and science began. In the century since this flowering, the world now sees alchemists and diviners working for Scotland Yard. Magical courses being taught at prominent universities, and feats of invention that seem almost magical themselves are becoming visible, if not commonplace. To keep the realm safe, Queen Victoria and her representatives have gathered together people of diverse talents. You are one of these heroes. Perhaps you are a gentle adventurer, possessing mundane skills honed to incredible levels. The gift of magic may be yours to command. You may be a being of legend, gifted (or cursed) with abilities that make you more (and perhaps less) than human. Invention and science may be your gift - or your curse, if what you create works only in your hands. So far, I have among our PC cast a golem, a shapeshifter, several immortals of various stripes, two or three half or full-blooded Fey, more than a few "mundane" adventurers, a handful of magicians with various specialties, a pair of mediums - each with their own relationship with the spirits of the dead, and a few scientists - an animator, a master of etheric engines, and a four-armed cyborg who cheats at cards.

Because really, who else would be digging up artifacts of great power? You've been tasked with diving into one of these tombs and securing the artifact before the Reich can claim it for their own.
