GAME DESIGNER'S CORNER

Saskatchewan has a growing community of board game and role playing game designers. PGX supports local gamemakers showcase their games by hosting a "Game Designer's Corner" in which there will be demos and play tests of local designs featured throughout the day. Contact Derek (lifeofturner) for more details!

GAME: Ultimate 4 Square
DESIGNER: Colter Hahn (Indoor Playground Games)
PLAYERS: 2-6 (4-5 recommended)
START TIME: 9:00 am and 10:30 am
DURATION: 1-1.5 hours

Do you remember the awesome childhood game Four Square? Players would make their way to the Kings Square by facing against their fellow peers with a big rubber ball and using endurance, skill, and power to win! Ultimate 4 Square is designed to simulate the back-and-fourth concept of the classic playground game and brings familiarity and nostalgia to its fan base. It uses dice to attack and cards to defend which presents a refreshingly new experience to board game players.

GAME: Deck of Many Dungeons (http://agile-games.net/domd/)
DESIGNER: Laura Smart
PLAYERS: 2-7 (best with 3-6) including GM
START TIME: 11 am and 3 pm
DURATION: 2½-3 hours

DoMD is a fully-featured RPG taking place in the war-ravaged fantasy land of Koregard.  The central conceit of the system is that gear, abilities, and most of the rules are on cards.  Making a character or planning an encounter is as fast as making your choices.  Everything is designed to be modular, so you can mix & match gear and classes in any way you like.  And if you play over multiple sessions, you can level up and pick out new abilities, or find enchanted items.

GAME: Food and Energy Strategy Game [Working Title]
DESIGNER: Bill Strautman
PLAYERS: 4 (best)
START TIME: 12 pm and 3 pm
DURATION: 1.5-2 hours

The world needs food and energy. You are a global entrepreneur that will jet around the world, set up food production and energy production units, ship your production to market and try to make your sales at the top of the market rather than the bottom. But various world events or aggressive opponents' moves might get in your way. Your objectives are to earn $1 billion, maintain control of production units in four separate regions of the world, and gain security with gold. But life isn’t all work and no play. You must also gain your passport by taking a vacation through Australia. The first player to gain and hold all four objectives is the winner.

GAME: Crimewave
DESIGNER: Dastardly Fun Games (David Bagwell & co.)
PLAYERS: 2-6
START TIME: Throughout the day
DURATION: 45-60 mins.

Crimewave is played in a series of rounds. Each round represents an instance of an ongoing turf war in Denton City. In each round, players earn points by using the abilities of certain cards or by having the card with the highest value once the play deck is empty. As soon as one player has accumulated enough points, they are declared the Crime Lord of the city, allowing them to bask in the glory of their underworld power.

Through the Desert Tournament

WHEN: Sunday January 19, 2020
WHERE: Prairie Game eXpo
START TIME: 12:00 PM
DURATION: 120 minutes
MAXIMUM PLAYERS: 16

There are 2 rounds to the tournament. They consist of:
- 1 Preliminary Round (4 tables of 4 people)
- 1 Championship Round (1 table of 4 people)

Tournament Format

The Preliminary Round will consist of 4 boards with 4 players. Players will play 1 game. The winner of each game will qualify for the Championship Round. If the tournament does not have 4 tables, the winner of each game will qualify, plus the highest scoring player will move to the Championship Round as needed.

PRIZES: Tournament winner receives a PGX prize mug

Time limit: No round will go longer than 60 minutes. Final determination will be based on number of victory points total among games played in a round.

If we do not make our 16 player roster we will make amendments on the fly.

In Through the Desert, two to five players each control a tribe of nomads vying for control of the desert. By establishing caravans and taking over oases, the players gain points as their tribes increase in power.
Strategy is essential in deciding how and where to build your tribe's caravans. There are multiple ways to gain points and several ways to win. Should you try to build the longest caravan? Or should you dominate the desert's oases? Don't forget to keep an eye on your opponents' caravans, or you may find your own tribe cut off from valuable water holes.

I will register for the X-Wing tourney.  Haven't played in a year and a half, and have never done 2.0, so it'll be good to dust the old ships off again!

I will sign my son Zach up for the tournament, also small correction to the time, each round is a 75 minute round, unless that is unable to happen, thinking of just doing 4 rounds of swiss.

Santorini Tournament

WHEN: Sunday January 19, 2020
WHERE: Prairie Game eXpo
START TIME: 2:30 PM
DURATION: 120 minutes
MAXIMUM PLAYERS: 16

There are 3 rounds to the tournament. They consist of:
- 1 Preliminary Round (4 tables of 4 people)
- 1 Semi-Final Round (2 tables of 4 people)
- 1 Championship Round (1 table of 4 people)

Tournament Format

The Preliminary Round will consist of 4 boards with 4 players. Players will play best of 3 games. The winner of the games will qualify for the Semi-Final Round. In the Semi-Final Round, there will be 2 boards with 4 players. The team winners of only one game will move to the Championship Round. The two final teams will play one game, winners take all.

If the tournament does not have 4 tables (8 teams), we will only play 2 tables (4 teams). The winners of each table will play best of 3 games at the Championship Round.

PRIZES: Tournament winners receives a PGX prize mug

Time limit: The first round will go no longer than 60 minutes. The Semi-Final & Championship Round will go no longer then 30 minutes.

Other notes:
-Players will be randomly seated.
-Teams of 2 will be randomly selected.
-Players will receive a random god card for each game. We will only be playing gods #1-8.

Santorini is an accessible strategy game, simple enough for an elementary school classroom while aiming to provide gameplay depth and content for hardcore gamers to explore, The rules are simple. Each turn consists of 2 steps:

1. Move - move one of your builders into a neighboring space. You may move your Builder Pawn on the same level, step-up one level, or step down any number of levels.

2. Build - Then construct a building level adjacent to the builder you moved. When building on top of the third level, place a dome instead, removing that space from play.

Winning the game - If either of your builders reaches the third level, you win.

Variable player powers - Santorini features variable player powers layered over an otherwise abstract game, with 40 thematic god and hero powers that fundamentally change the way the game is played.
