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!

Fantastic, Rachel! As you can see, we'd added some details about Netrunner and have added you and the game to the main schedule for Prairie Game Expo.

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)

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!

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.
Let me know if you want to me to bring out a specific game: Game List

This is a very good idea!

No, unfortunately she won't be able to make it. Amerigo does sound interesting. Just not sure how much Stephan Feld to learn in one day.
