Saskatchewan has a growing community of board game and role playing game designers. PGX supports local game designers showcase their games by hosting a "Game Design Corner" in which there will be demos and play tests of local designs featured throughout the day. There is no need to sign up - just stop by and learn to play one of the games!

:scrab-i :scrab-m :scrab-p :scrab-o :scrab-r :scrab-t :scrab-a :scrab-n :scrab-t  :scrab-n :scrab-o :scrab-t :scrab-e for Game Designers: We have a SaskGames Design Team that meets regularly to promote local game design and to support one another's efforts. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, October 18, at 7:30 pm at Chewsday Challenge at North Albert Boston Pizza. Contact Derek (lifeofturner) for more details!

GAME: Merchant's Dilemma
DESIGNER: Stephen Kenny
START TIMES: 11:00 and 12:30
DURATION: 30-60 minutes

Welcome to Merchant’s Dilemma, a political game of cooperation and rivalry for 3-6 players. In Merchant’s Dilemma, you are playing as a merchant who must negotiate with your fellow players to gain gold. Will you cooperate and both profit, or will you compete to try and take the riches for yourself? The choice is up to you! Each turn, you will choose to cooperate or compete with another player. Cooperation results in the biggest payout overall, if you both agree. Choosing to compete while they cooperate, however, will gain you more while they gain nothing. Hopefully they don’t hold a grudge. Invest in Buildings to expand your influence, or play Tactics to get revenge on your enemies, but be careful who you burn. You might need them later if you hope to get ahead. Merchant’s Dilemma only takes about 10 minutes to setup and learn. The game lasts about 10 minutes per player (30-60 minutes).


GAME: Monkey
DESIGNER: Rob Gosselin
START TIME: 2:00 pm
DURATION: 30-45 minutes

Kurgill the Wizard has gone crazy. Watch out, as you and your fellow monkey climbers must escape his hazardous spells. Bananas, faeries and anvils, oh my! You never know what Kurgill will throw at you next. Only the Treetop is safe. Climb as quickly as you can, battle to knock each other down, dodge the traps, and above all, beware of the Gnome. It’s a race to the top. Monkey is a fast-paced, goofy card game where the odds are against you. It can be played with up to 4 players and even includes a solitaire mode. Each player is a monkey who starts at the bottom of the collective “Tree.” Four cards make up the “Trunk” of the Tree and three cards make up the “Treetop.” Each turn starts with you drawing a card into your hand from the draw pile, then flipping over the top card of the “Spell Deck” (usually this “spell” harms you, but you might get lucky!).

GAME: Pot O' Gold
DESIGNER: Derek Turner
START TIME: 4:00 pm
DURATION: 45 minutes

Pot O' Gold is a colorful, fast-paced family card game. Each player takes on the role of a leprechaun trying to be the first to complete their rainbow and get the Pot O' Gold - but they have to be wary of the other devious tricksters who have the same goal! Pot O' Gold includes nine different cards, each of which have actions associated with them. These include seven different color cards - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet - that may be played sequentially to form a player's rainbow or to take an action that will help them manage their cards, get new cards, or attack another player. Play continues until one player has played all colors of the rainbow in order and plays a Pot O' Gold to win the game.


GAME: Naval Battles: Customizable Card Game
TEACHER: Devin Fifield
START TIME: 1:00pm
DURATION: 2-3 hrs

I would like to showcase my game that weekend at the PGX and would like to get 6 players together to play a sealed deck format game. This game is developed around modern naval combat, players will act as Admirals and have the opportunity to build and deploy ships, equip them with weapons cards and aircraft, and send them into combat against your opponent.  Players command from a flagship that acts like a virtual ship that you can also deploy weapons and defense cards to, and can use these to attack your opponent or defend yourself from attack.  Players will use resource cards to draw requisition to pay for your construction costs.  Players will also have access to special Instant cards that can be played at anytime when that player has enough requisition and can satisfy any prerequisites.  Complete rule book is available on the website above, as well as a visual spoiler of all the cards in the core set and upcoming expansion.
