I'm going to be bringing out the prototype for Nautilus Industries again while the Kickstarter is active. (6 players, 120 minutes @ 8:30pm)

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bqr1KXVCUAAaQpE.jpg:large)Nemo is gone, but his machines have opened a whole new world to us! The floors of Neptune's seas lay open to us, ready to surrender their bounties. Equip and upgrade your mining machines, then guide them to the rich mineral seams beneath the ocean. Control the supply of resources to bend the market to your will. Become the master of Nautilus Industries!

In the game, players take on the role of an enterprising business owner, with each trying to exploit the riches of the sea as well as the marketplace to earn the most money by the end of the game. Players take a series of simple actions, such as programming a mining robot, increasing warehouse capacity, swapping mining zone order, or purchasing stocks.

Each round, players have four actions they must take before the gathering/market phase. During this phase, players collect and sell resources, in turn order. Each sea zone is mined in a specific order, and players have the option each round to sell or hold their resources for a later round. When resources are sold, the market price of that resource decreases to reflect the supply/demand of that resource; stocks of the company using that resource also increase in value. Accordingly, if a resource is not sold, the market price for that resource increases. Players must decide when to sell and when to hold. Should you flood the market to bring down the price so your neighbor makes less money? Do you think the player beside you will hold out for a higher price, or will they sell just to spite you?

I can bring it out on the 2nd as well, which will be cutting it close, only giving you the night to determine if you want to go into it/stay in it. But it's better than nothing.

Well, It's been almost a month and a half, but I can finally host that promised game of Compounded! I would like to reserve the spots for those who were signed up before, namely:

1. Thomsoda
2. Matt Robertson
3. NeikeDjour
4. Prairieguy
5. Kimberlycupcake

This will be starting at 6:30, and takes about an hour and a half. If all of those mentioned here could please confirm that they would like to play or not, that would be great!

Barry asked me if I could bring out Mice & Mystics so I shall! (4 players, 120 minutes @ 8:30pm)

(http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic1312072_md.jpg)
In Mice and Mystics players take on the roles of those still loyal to the king – but to escape the clutches of Vanestra, they have been turned into mice! Play as cunning field mice who must race through a castle now twenty times larger than before. The castle would be a dangerous place with Vanestra's minions in control, but now countless other terrors also await heroes who are but the size of figs. Play as nimble Prince Collin and fence your way past your foes, or try Nez Bellows, the burly smith. Confound your foes as the wizened old mouse Maginos, or protect your companions as Tilda, the castle's former healer. Every player will have a vital role in the quest to warn the king, and it will take careful planning to find Vanestra's weakness and defeat her.

Mice and Mystics is a cooperative adventure game in which the players work together to save an imperiled kingdom. They will face countless adversaries such as rats, cockroaches, and spiders, and of course the greatest of all horrors: the castle's housecat, Brodie. Mice and Mystics is a boldly innovative game that thrusts players into an ever-changing, interactive environment, and features a rich storyline that the players help create as they play the game. The Cheese System allows players to hoard the crumbs of precious cheese they find on their journey, and use it to bolster their mice with grandiose new abilities and overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.

Mice and Mystics will provide any group of friends with an unforgettable adventure they will be talking about for years to come – assuming they can all squeak by...

Just to confirm, I plan to attend the next CC session. (And thank you Murray for posting Mice & Mystics. I was once asked if I was a man or a mouse, and now I will find out.  ::) )

Please mark me down for Mice & Mystics. I dug Plaid Hat Games' Dead of Winter last week so I would be interested in checking out more of their stuff.

I'm going to bring Alien Frontiers to start the night (4 players, 90 minutes at 630pm), if anyone's interested. I have the Factions expansion, which we can play with if players are familiar with the game. But I want to keep it to 4 players instead of 5 so it doesn't end up going super long.

(http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic1657833_md.jpg)Do you have what it takes to be a deep space colonist? An alien frontier awaits the brave and daring! This new planet will be harsh, but if you have the skills to manage your resources, build a fleet, research alien life, and settle colonies, the world can be yours.

Alien Frontiers is a game of resource management and planetary development for two to four players. During the game you will utilize orbital facilities and alien technology to build colony domes in strategic locations to control the newly discovered world.

The game board shows the planet, its moon, the stations in orbit around the planet, and the solar system’s star. The dice you are given at the start of the game represent the space ships in your fleet. You will assign these ships to the orbital facilities in order to earn resources, expand your fleet, and colonize the planet.

As the game progresses, you will place your colony tokens on the planet to represent the amount of control you have over each territory. Those territories exert influence over specific orbital facilities and, if you control a territory, you are able to utilize that sway to your advantage.

The planet was once the home of an alien race and they left behind a wondrous artifact in orbit. Using your fleet to explore the artifact, you will discover amazing alien technologies that you can use to advance your cause.

That's totally ok, roxy72. The game's fairly easy to pick up. And really, the Factions expansion just adds some more choices, so it's not a big deal if people are new to the game.
