(http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic1180640_md.jpg)Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) is a board game in which one player takes on the role of the treacherous overlord, and up to four other players take on the roles of courageous heroes. During each game, the heroes embark on quests and venture into dangerous caves, ancient ruins, dark dungeons, and cursed forests to battle monsters, earn riches, and attempt to stop the overlord from carrying out his vile plot.

With danger lurking in every shadow, combat is a necessity. For such times, Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) uses a unique dice-based system. Players build their dice pools according to their character's abilities and weapons, and each die in the pool contributes to an attack in different ways. Surges, special symbols that appear on most dice, also let you trigger special effects to make the most of your attacks. And with the horrors awaiting you beneath the surface, you'll need every advantage you can take...

Featuring double-sided modular board pieces, countless hero and skill combinations, and an immersive story-driven campaign, Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) transports heroes to a vibrant fantasy realm where they must stand together against an ancient evil.

Descent: Journeys in the Dark will be played with no expansions. Supports 5 players. 120 minutes is the estimated duration. You may reserve a spot for this game by responding in this discussion thread.

Game teacher Colin Dearborn has been a long-time supporter of gaming, with frequent appearances at Chewsday Challenge, FRAG, and other board gaming events and venues, including BGG Con in Dallas, Texas.

(http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic1430769_md.jpg)Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game is set in the Marvel Comics universe.  Over the course of the game, players will recruit powerful hero cards to add to their deck in order to build a stronger and more resourceful deck. As players fight and defeat villains, they collect those cards, which will be worth points at game's end. Players can also fight the mastermind; if a player has enough fighting power, he claims one of the attack cards beneath the mastermind, which has a particular effect on the game. If all of these cards are claimed, the game ends and players tally their points to see who wins. If the mastermind completes his scheme, however – having a certain number of villains escape, for example, or imposing a certain number of wounds on the heroes – then the players all lose.

Legendary: A Marvel Deck-Building Game will be played with the Dark City and Fantastic Four expansions. Supports 5 players. 120 minutes is the estimated duration. You may reserve a spot for this game by responding in this discussion thread.

(http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic1176894.jpg)The game is set in the Burgundy region of High Medieval France. Each player takes on the role of an aristocrat, originally controlling a small princedom. While playing they aim to build settlements and powerful castles, practice trade along the river, exploit silver mines, and use the knowledge of travelers.

The game is about players taking settlement tiles from the game board and placing them into their princedom which is represented by the player board. Every tile has a function that starts when the tile is placed in the princedom. The princedom itself consists of several regions, each of which demands its own type of settlement tile.

Castles of Burgundy supports 4 players. 120 minutes is the estimated duration. You may reserve a spot for this game by responding in this discussion thread.

Game teacher omegadirective (Brandon) was having supper at Boston Pizza on north Albert Street when he noticed the board gamers at Chewsday Challenge. He stuck his head into the event, learn more about what was going on, and said he'd be back. Well, he came back, and then again, and again, again!

Do you love really messy,
complicated time-travel stories?


As a time traveller you can go anywhere and anywhen in time and space. Visit ancient battlefields, lost civilizations, modern cities, and future space colonies. 
Fight robots, dinosaurs, aliens, time bandits, and Grey Goo.   But that's not all.
Travel back into scenes that have already been played.  Alter history, meet yourself, be in two places at once, and cheat death.  Call on your past or future self to help you. 
Meet the other characters before they have met you.  Solve mysteries before they happen.
... and try not to get caught in your own Paradoxes.
Because time travellers can do anything ... except resist the temptation to Bend time too far.

(http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic1805590_t.jpg)Nation is a civilization style worker placement strategy card game. It takes place is a alternate earth based universe where bug aliens are the dominant species. Players, on their turn, use 1 of 4 actions per worker to develop their nation with the ultimate goal of competing for the most Victory Points.

Players play their worker tokens onto a random map. The map starts out hidden and is revealed as players explore. For each worker token played a player may take 1 action: Build, Develop, Draw or Battle. Build action allows players to build populaces onto map cards. Develop action allow players to play cards from their hands that have unique attributes as well as provide food for more workers, building materials for populaces and military strength. Battle action allows players to take over populaces of other players. Draw actions allow players to draw more cards into their hand.

Players continue taking turns until the draw deck depletes. Victory Points are counted based upon the number of civilians in play, populace control and military might.

Tom and I are coming and bringing Android: Netrunner.  Both of us are willing to teach the game to anyone who is interested.  We'll be bringing six decks for people to play with, so we can have up to three games going at once.  We'll be there at 11am.  First games will probably run 45 minutes and then as low as 20 minutes once people know the rules.

Android: Netrunner is an asymmetrical Living Card Game for two players. Set in the cyberpunk future of Android and Infiltration, the game pits a megacorporation and its massive resources against the subversive talents of lone runners.

Corporations seek to score agendas by advancing them. Doing so takes time and credits. To buy the time and earn the credits they need, they must secure their servers and data forts with "ice". These security programs come in different varieties, from simple barriers, to code gates and aggressive sentries. They serve as the corporation's virtual eyes, ears, and machine guns on the sprawling information superhighways of the network.

In turn, runners need to spend their time and credits acquiring a sufficient wealth of resources, purchasing the necessary hardware, and developing suitably powerful ice-breaker programs to hack past corporate security measures. Their jobs are always a little desperate, driven by tight timelines, and shrouded in mystery. When a runner jacks-in and starts a run at a corporate server, he risks having his best programs trashed or being caught by a trace program and left vulnerable to corporate countermeasures. It's not uncommon for an unprepared runner to fail to bypass a nasty sentry and suffer massive brain damage as a result. Even if a runner gets through a data fort's defenses, there's no telling what it holds. Sometimes, the runner finds something of value. Sometimes, the best he can do is work to trash whatever the corporation was developing.

The first player to seven points wins the game, but not likely before he suffers some brain damage or bad publicity.

Android: Netrunner players Rachel and Tom are willing to teach new players. They will be at Prairie Game Expo at 11am. Respond to this post to book your session with Tom and Rachel. Or, if you're a player already, challenge them to a game!

I know I'll be there probably all day. It would be nice day of to have a list posted somewhere in the building of all the games pre-planned sorted by time, so you can check to see whatever is going to be happening, should you be looking.

I know I'm going to be bringing Krosmaster Arena and Super Dungeon Explore for sure. I'm not sure how much else I'll have room to bring. Krosmaster Arena (2 games, 9:30am and 11:30am, 120 minutes, 4 players), and Super Dungeon Explore (2:30pm, 240 minutes, 4 players)

(http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic1573355_md.png)Player-vs-player, tactical card game with anime-style miniatures that offers the craftiest tacticians among you the chance to challenge other players to heated battles in arenas scattered around Hormonde.

All players build their team using a pre-determined method, whether a point system, draft, or at random. Equip your team with spells, weapons and other items adapted to their requirements, then utilize their various talents and abilities to create a powerful fighting force. Every figure has a point value attached to it to help balance things out.

Only those who are able to create a strong, yet versatile, strategy will prevail!

(http://www.coolminiornot.com/shop/media/catalog/product/s/d/sde_boxtop.jpg)Super Dungeon Explore is a dungeon crawler inspired by old Japanese console RPGs. The 52 included miniatures are done in a cute / chibi / super-deformed style.

Players take the role of classic fantasy heroes like the human paladin, a dwarf fighter, or an elf ranger. One player is the "Dark Consul" who controls the monsters of the dungeon. Every hero/monster has a character card that details the stats for movement, attack, armor, willpower, dexterity, action points and hearts . Additional information may include special abilities / actions / attacks and potions.

The game is played on modular dungeon boards. During a round of play, the game passes back and forth between single heroes and the monsters, but the exact order may change from round to round. The characters use the stats from their character card, special dice (with hearts, potions and stars) are only used for combat and checks. If the heroes wound the opponent, they may draw loot cards to improve their stats. There is also the possibility to open treasure chests to find even more powerful things. The monsters have no possibility to "level up" apart from a single late game upgrade but the Dark Consul has an unlimited number of them.

To win the game, either the Dark Consul must defeat all heroes in his dungeon or the Heroes must spawn the boss by killing monsters or destroying all spawning points, and then must then kill the dungeon boss to be victorious.

I am thinking about bringing some Stefan Feld games to run. Is there any interest in playing some of the following games?

Amerigo
Rialto
Castle of Burgundy
Bora Bora
Bruges


I am planning to come and would love to play Bora Bora. I would also like to get in on Castles of Burgundy or Bruges.
Wow. Jon. GLAD you are making it to Regina for this. I would be happy to play both of those and I also highly recommend you try Amerigo. Is Lindy coming as well?

(http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic1555851_md.jpg)In the worker-placement style game What's He Building in There?, players use their Doctors and three henchmen to acquire resources at the available shops, acquire gold, visit the black markets, provide the "Genius at Work" labor (GAW), provide "Manual Labor" (ML), improve the Doctor's social standing, and invent things. You must complete both a Doomsday Machine and an Escape Plan, with higher level Doomsday Machines and Escape Plans garnering more victory points, and you need to do it quickly. Scotland Yard is getting suspicious, after all, so you have to do what you need to do in 15 turns. Players can earn additional victory points for fitting in with society, eccentricity, security and inventions.

This game will be taught by qwijybo, an attendee and Ambassador at Chewsday Challenge.

On a distant alien planet, insects have evolved into the dominant species and achieved developmental breakthroughs in architecture, metallurgy, agriculture, science and linguistics. Players take on the roles of the major civilizations as they develop, build, conquer, explore and spread across the continents, competing to become this world’s greatest NATION!

Jason Szarkowicz and Dyson Yobb are two Regina based game designers that have self-published a card game called Nation: A Mighty Spark. We will be demonstrating it through out the day and being onhand to discuss our self-publishing experiences with anyone who is interested.

We will be hosting a game for 2 to 4 players at 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, 2:00 pm & 4:00 pm. We hope to see you there!

(http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic182903_md.jpg)THE COWBOYS is a game of the Old West. Players shoot it out in 10 - 60+ minutes. The game features stand-up Cowboy Counters artistically designed with full color artwork by Gary S. Zaboly. There are 26 Historical and Hollywood style scenarios in the game. Six double-sided geomorphic map boards create the battlegrounds of the Old West.

The game rules allow you to pick up and play the game in minutes. The optional rules add chrome but still keeps the game very playable. The "Old West" personalities are there; Wyatt, Doc, Jesse, Billy, and many other legends of the Wild West. Some of the variables include townsfolk, horses, etc.

Bank robberies, cattle rustling, stagecoach holdups, jail breaks, lynch mobs, and many other western actions are depicted. It pits opposing sides against each other, bringing to life the daring and dastardly deeds of heroes and villains when the way of the gun ruled the day. Included are the lawmen, gunfighters, gamblers, and ne'er do wells who knew how to handle themselves during a gunfight. Also the town folk will show up to add a much needed gun to the fight.

Chad Boudreau will run Cowboys with modified advanced rules. He is developing a set of rules for a miniatures game set in the Old West. Those rules are a combination of Cowboys' advanced rules, and some of the rules he likes from Warhammer Historical Old West rules. This new rule-set adds new thematic and strategic elements to Cowboys. But don't let the term "advanced" scare you away! This version of Cowboys still plays fast and furious with plenty of tension.

Depending on interest, Chad will run multiple scenarios.

I'd like to come out for 11am and can stay until 5pm. The game, Story Builder, runs for approximately 60 minutes (I've had it wrap in just over 30 minutes, and I've had it take a 2+ hours though), and I have two sets of the game so if one goes a little long another group could get started. It's for 2-6 players.

Let me translate:

"I and some fellow gaming enthusiasts will be showcasing Warmachine / Hordes at Prairie Game Expo. We will be actively playing this miniatures game, but encourage all interested gamers to come have a look. We will happily tell you about this hobby. We are a friendly lot."

Mark, Rachel and Tom who are teaching Netrunner at 11:00am are Mage War players. I've told them you are coming. They've played a game but are interested in learning the rules from someone who has played a lot of games. So if their schedule allows I suspect they will join you for Mage Wars.

I'm not sure if this sort of thing is allowed at the expo, but I thought I'd ask.  I bought Combat Commander - Pacific a few months after reading a lot of good reviews.  However, I just haven't been able to get into and can't help but feel that I haven't interpreted the rules correctly. 

If someone has a little time to teach me the game tomorrow, and maybe play out a short scenario, I'd be very grateful.  Let me know and ill bring my copy along.  Thanks in advance!

Edit: Just FYI I'm in a scheduled game at 10am, but should be free anytime between 1230 and 330 to learn the game!

I know there are lots of games to sign up for, just wanted to let people know that I will be out with my daughter Amanda (11 years old) and we will be set up somewhere playing games all day. I will be bringing out mostly lighter, family and newbie friendly games.

I am running a couple of games; Descent at 9:30 and Legendary at 1:30 but otherwise we will be just playing whatever interests us at the time, so come and find us if you are looking for those types of games.

A few that we will be bringing out:

Guildhall
Coloretto
Saboteur
Survive: Escape from Atlantis
Libertalia
Love Letter
Cockroach Poker
Undermining


PS: Ryan N

I will bring out Lords of Scotland if you want another play.

I don't think underground will work since the map, races and powers are all different and you can actually score a bit higher in that one.

Also, I wanted to make a separate note that I'll be teaching Galaxy Trucker at 11 AM and Lords of Waterdeep at 3 PM.

If for some reason, there isn't enough interest a Small World Tournament, I might bring some other games as back up. I'd really like to get Ikusa out, or maybe Talisman.

Hey Mike.
There is no outside food or beverage permitted. We sincerely hope everyone supports the canteen at this event.

Not only is the event free to attend, but the canteen is being run by a charitable organization and all sales are going to help fund a very worthwhile organization in their mission to do good in the community.

Have a look at the awesome menu they providing:

If we don't have enough Small Worlds for groups of 3, we'll increase it to groups of 4. We'll find a way to make it work.

Breton and Lochlan are going to attend 1 - 4. If Breton doesn't want to play with me and Lochlan the whole time I'll send him over to you, Colin, to see what you're up to. He remembers you (and Alex) and I believe he has met Amanda before. On the flip side, I'll ask Amanda if she wants to join us. We're bringing Magic Labyrinth, Monster Factory, King of Tokyo, and Get Bit.

Models don't have to be painted.
I don't know the answer to your other question. I'll see the tournament organizer around 9am so I'll ask him to post a reply.
I signed you up for X-Wing. There are multiple spots left for your friends. I didn't sign them up since I don't know their names.

I just wanted to thank the organizers, and everyone who helped set up this event.  It was neat to see so many people come out and play a whole bunch of different games.  I wish I could have stayed longer than I did.

Also, I'd like to thank Brandon and Matt for teaching me Castles of Burgundy and Amerigo respectively.

I hope to come out for the next Expo in the spring/summer!

It was an absolute pleasure to attend and I'm really looking forward to the next one.  Thanks to Dana, Chad and anyone else that had a hand in the efforts.  It was very well run and organized and I must also say the food, and choices, were excellent - truly no reason to go anywhere else.

  The venue was great and what a nice problem to have that space may be an issue in future events!

  It's funny, I talk to the CJME fellow for 5 minutes and those are the quotes he pulls.  ::) :D

Thanks to all the organizers for such a great event, and thanks to those who played Spectrum!  Highlights of the game were:

Dyson's Pirate found himself in an ancient Egyptian battlefield.  He tried posing as a messenger from the god Anubis, but was captured by Egyptian warriors who were going to sacrifice him, to send him back to Anubis.  The Pirate escaped from his captors, and Bent Time so that a future version of himself was posing as the high priest of Anubis.  The future-version of the Pirate helped his past self escape, but once they were safely out into the desert, the Paradox caught up with them.  The future version of the Pirate was destroyed, leaving the past version free, but knowing that he would eventually be destroyed by Paradox while rescuing himself.

Ashley's Kid was camped out behind a truck-stop in 2008 when she heared a gun shot out front. She Bends Time to find a remote-control car with a mounted camera, and sends it to investigate. Through the camera she sees that a time bandit has just shot a trucker. The trucker is bleeding out, and the time bandit is driving away. The Kid Bends time again to find a robot double of the trucker, and time jumps back to yesterday. She hides in the other end of the alley, so her earlier self won't see her, and spends the day building the camera car and planting it for herself to find. She tries to save the trucker by switching him with the robot before he gets shot, but when she's talking to the trucker she draws a Black Joker (worst possible outcome). The time bandit shows up, and since the Kid is in the way, he shoots her. We end the session with the Kid laying bleeding by the highway.

The Bend for the remote-control car was resolved by the end of the session, but the Bend for the robot double wasn't, so it causes Paradox. Sophisticated robots are now invented in 2008, years before they were supposed to be.

Both characters started out with pretty simple problems, but trying to solve their problems with time travel only created more complicated problems.  If those sorts of stories sound fun to you, join me for Spectrum at the next PGX!

I also want to thank Chad And Dana for all their input and all those who also did their parts. I am so glad I could make it and it was awesome to learn so much Feld even if it was all in one day. Also, good to meet and play with some new faces.

I hope to be able to show up for the next one as well and maybe next time with my daughter.

Any volunteer(s) that would like to write up a recap about the event for the February edition of the SaskGaes News Bulletin?
