Saskatchewan has a growing community of board game and role playing game designers. PGX supports local game designers showcase their games by hosting a "Game Design Corner" in which there will be demos and play tests of local designs featured throughout the day.

:scrab-i :scrab-m :scrab-p :scrab-o :scrab-r :scrab-t :scrab-a :scrab-n :scrab-t  :scrab-n :scrab-o :scrab-t :scrab-e for Game Designers: There is a group of local Regina-based designers that meets regularly to promote local game design and to support one another's efforts. Contact Derek (lifeofturner) for more details!

Checkbox Adventures is a one-page, GM-less RPG. We discover the setting, characters and plot as we explore a fun, exciting story together in this quick, one-shot RPG! Onward to Adventure!


GAME: Pawn

Pawn is a horror based, a storytelling-RPG hybrid game based in a setting where armageddon has been raging for over 4,000 years.  Most of the players take the role of Pawns (ie mortal humans), fighting for survival as the two Avatars (the GMs of the game) fight for control of sins and virtues in an effort to bring about Armageddon.

This session is the first playtest of Pawn. We will be testing two core mechanics: the Avatar card game mechanics and the Pawn RPG mechanics.  I'm looking for one player with GM/DM experience to help with the Avatar testing and at least 5 players to help with the Pawn testing.  Pawn testers do not need previous storytelling or RPG experience.


GAME: First Past the Post
DESIGNER: Derek Turner (lifeofturner)
START TIME: 2:00 PM
DURATION: 90-120 mins.
1. lifeofturner
2. Krazzy
3. tbrminsanity
4. Gloop

First Past the Post is a mid-weight strategic area control game based on the Canadian electoral system. The game has been in the works for a year, but this will be the first play test of the prototype. The game will likely take about an hour and a half to play - although it will likely be a bit laborious and buggy at times - and I will be looking for some productive feedback afterward.

We will be hosting an area at PGX devoted to role-playing games. If you would like to run a RPG event please let us know. Past games have included Pathfinder, Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars, 3 6 9 & more!

GAME: Pathfinder
TEACHER: Saskatchewan Pathfinder Society
START TIME: 10:00am (Running All Day)
DURATION: up to 60 minutes per Scenario, multiple scenarios to play.
PLAYERS: 6 max. at a table
Games will start as spots fill up. No pre-registration required.

Pathfinder is a tabletop fantasy roleplaying game developed by Paizo. Characters are used to complete various adventures and scenarios to further their factions and the pathfinder organization. We accept groups of people or individuals that would like to test out pathfinder. If you choose to register for the organized play, your character will be valid to be used at any sanctioned Pathfinder events. It is a great way to jump into the world of roleplaying and easy to introduce new players. Each introduction scenario is developed for new players and the pre-generated characters used are easy to use. Tables can vary from 4 players to 6 and we will have multiple Game Masters available to assist. If you have any further questions feel free to email us at SaskatoonPFS@gmail.com

GAME: Chronicles of Darkness (New World of Darkness, 2nd Ed.)
TEACHER: bboileau
TIME: 9:00am - 12:00pm
DURATION: up to 75 minutes per Story.
PLAYERS: 5 max. at a table
Games will start as spots fill up. No pre-registration required, but early sign-ups are welcome! With the time slot for 3 hours, there will likely be two sessions—9:00am and 10:15am.

After an extensive overhaul of the concepts of the Classic World of Darkness, the Chronicles of Darkness (sometimes “CofD”) was developed in 2004 with the release of the World of Darkness Rulebook, featuring a game of ordinary people who find themselves embroiled in the supernatural. More than a decade later, it remains a fan favorite supporting an incredible ten supporting lines, such as Vampire: The Requiem, Werewolf: The Forsaken, and more!

Session #1 (9:00am)

GAME: Dread RPG
TEACHER: bboileau
TIME: 2:00pm - 5:00pm
DURATION: up to 60 minutes per Story.
PLAYERS: 5 max. at a table
Games will start as spots fill up. No pre-registration required, but early sign-ups are welcome! With the time slot for 3 hours, there will likely be three sessions on the hour.

Dread is a game of horror and hope. Those who play will participate in a mutual telling of an original macabre tale. The goal of Dread is to sustain the delicate atmosphere that invokes the hand quivering emotion that lends its name to the game. The thrill of a Dread game lies within the tension between desire and loss. You will take on the role of someone trapped in a story that is only as compelling as it is hostile—someone who will find themselves making decisions we hope never to face in real life.

It is the horror roleplaying game that uses Jenga® instead of dice. Pull from the tower and you succeed. Refuse to pull and you fail. The choice is yours. But if the tower falls . . .

GAME: Call of Cthulhu RPG (Dockside Dogs)

START TIME: 10:00am
DURATION: 120–240 minutes
PLAYERS: 3-6 players

Call of Cthulhu is a horror roleplaying game using the Basic Roleplaying system and based upon the writings of Howard Phillips Lovecraft and a few others. Lovecraft wrote during the 1920s and 1930s, and he became a cult figure before dying in 1937. Since then his stature as an author has grown, and now he is generally recognized as the major American horror-story writer of the twentieth century.

Scenario: A group of well-dressed criminals arrive at a warehouse to rendezvous after pulling off an extraordinary crime. They know each other only by their pseudonyms - Mister Black, Mister Red, Mister Green, Mister Purple, Mister Beige, Mister Silver, Mister Grey. The plan is simply to sit tight until midnight when someone will arrive to ferry them - and the loot - across the bay to make a final delivery to the boss. Sounds easy, right?

But things take a turn for the weird; strange things happen in and around the warehouse. Things which make the criminals doubt the allegiances of the compatriots, their own sanity, and ultimately the very nature of reality. It is going to be a long wait for the ferryman.

Dockside Dogs is a one-shot scenario for Call of Cthulhu. Three to six players take on the roles of the well-dressed criminals, hoping against all odds that they will make it through the night. Start time 5 pm so come on down and join in for the trip  to the dockside
