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.

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.

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.

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.
