GAME: KeyForge: Call of the Archons
ORGANIZER: Khoa L / Darrin B / Hayden M
START TIME: 12:00pm
END TIME: 2:00pm
DURATION: 40 minutes per match
PLAYERS: 2 players per match
DETAILS: One of the hottest new games in Regina makes its Prairie Game Expo debut. Khoa, Darrin and Hayden will teach you how to player KeyForge: Call of the Archons. No experience necessary and the guys will have decks that can borrowed as you learn. Existing KeyForge players are encouraged to attend, too, to engage other players in casual matches.

KeyForge: Call of the Archons is the world’s first Unique Deck Game. Every single Archon Deck that you'll use to play is truly unique and one-of-a kind, with its own Archon and its own mixture of cards in the deck. If you pick up an Archon Deck, you know that you're the only person in existence with access to this exact deck and its distinct combination of cards. In fact, in just the first set of KeyForge, Call of the Archons, there are more than 104 quadrillion possible decks!

KeyForge: Dawn of Discovery - Week #1

DESCRIPTION

Enter a world where anything is possible in KeyForge! In the center of the universe hangs the Crucible, an artificial world built from the pieces of countless planets. You will step into the role of a mighty Archon, racing to forge keys that unlock the Crucible’s hidden Vaults - before your opponent does!

Dawn of Discovery events are exploratory and welcoming events that encourage new players to learn from players already experienced with KeyForge.

There are three weekly events and then one final monthly event. The purpose of the weekly events is for players to become familiar with KeyForge and their own unique decks. The final monthly event is a chance for players to use everything they've learned against their opponents.

Each Dawn of Discovery event needs a minimum of 4 players. Events that do not trigger will be rescheduled.

WEEK 1 FORMAT

The first Dawn of Discovery event will be a sealed format event. Each player will buy 1 KeyForge deck from ComicReaders Downtown ($13.99 + tax) during event registration. At sealed tournaments, players are given only a few moments to look through it before they begin playing.

Players will need to bring all other game components with them (tokens, chain trackers, status cards). Due to the limited availability of the Call of Archons starter set which contains official game tokens, players will be allowed to bring suitable substitute tokens. When players are using substitutes, the player needs to show and explain the use of their substitutes to their opponent prior to the beginning of the match. This is to avoid any confusion regarding what the substitutes represent during the course of the match.

Each round is a single-game match. Report the win / loss to the tournament leader.

A win = 1 point
A loss = 0 points

The number of rounds is determined by the number of players. There are 3 rounds if there are 4 - 8 players. There are 4 rounds if there are 9 - 16 players.

Each match in a round is 35 minutes.

The first player in a match is determined in a random manner-- such as a toss of a coin.

The first player draws a starting hand of seven cards while the second player draws a starting hand of six cards.

Going to Time

When time is called for the round, the player who is currently taking their turn finishes their turn. If that player does not achieve victory by the end of their turn, then their opponent may take one last turn. If neither player has achieved victory (forged three Keys) at the end of the opponent’s last turn, they must follow the steps below, in order, to determine who receives a win for the current game.

1. Each player who has 6 or more Æmber forges 1 Key (removing the 6 Æmber from their pool as usual). Cards that affect Æmber costs have no effect during this step. Each player can only forge 1 key from this step.

2. The player with the most Keys forged is the winner. If there is a tie, proceed to step 3.

3. The player with the most remaining Æmber in their pool is the winner. If there is still a tie, proceed to step 4.

4. Each player selects one of their houses. Then, each player totals the number of friendly creatures in play of that house and adds the amount of bonus Æmber from that house’s cards still in their hand. This is that player’s “potential Æmber.” The player with the most potential Æmber is the winner. If there is still a tie, proceed to step 5.

5. The first player is the winner.

PRIZES

Prizes for Dawn of Discovery events are handed out based upon a player’s ranking.

Participation: The Top 8 players who participate in the event receives one Active House card of their choice, while supplies last.

Top Four: Each player receives one set of stun cards.

Winner: The overall winner of the weekly event receives one set of damage tokens.

Dragon Ball Super Card Game - Schedule for December 2018

DESCRIPTION

The Dragon Ball Super Card Game is the newest iteration of the Dragon Ball license applied to a collectable card game. While borrowing some basic terms and ideas from previous versions of the game, DBS introduces a number of new mechanics including a unique "combo" system, cards used for multiple purposes (energy, combos and characters) and a system designed to emulate the tendency of Dragon Ball characters to "power up" after taking damage.

Players of Dragon Ball Super meet at ComicReaders on Saturdays for casual games. This is a chance for experienced players to meet. It is also a chance for people to learn the game because the players are always welcome to teach newcomers.

If there are at least 8 players we can run a Tournament with prizes.
