GAME DESIGNER'S CORNER
:excited :scrab-g :scrab-a :scrab-m :scrab-e :scrab-blank :scrab-s :scrab-c :scrab-h :scrab-e :scrab-d :scrab-u :scrab-l :scrab-i :scrab-n :scrab-g  :excited

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 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!

We will have three designers at this PGX, two of whom will be new to the event!

GAME: The New World Order
DESIGNER: Ferne Hebig
PLAYERS: 4
START TIME: 10 AM (and 4 PM if there is interest)
DURATION: 60-90 mins

This is a prototype of an unpublished game where we will be testing a few new changes. It takes place in a post apocalyptic world where aliens failed in an invasion and all are forced to live together. Some get along, some not much. Will you let the cynical and self-serving apocalypse effect guide you or will your faith in humanity prevail?

GAME: SPL Battlegrounds: The Legends Edition
DESIGNER: Ferne Hebig
PLAYERS: 6
START TIME: 1 PM
DURATION: 60-90 mins

This is a car audio-themed card game. The objective of this game is to have a blast building the sound systems of car audio competition legends using the speaker and amplifier cards in your hand, or that you you draw, and the legend/class build cards cards you buy. The challenge is to be the one at the end of the hand and ultimately, the end of the game, who has racked up the highest score. This is a self-published game for demo playing, while ‘finished’ feedback is still welcome. Facebook @splbattlegrounds for more info and link to walkthrough video, etc.

GAME: Divided Loyalties
DESIGNER: Ozzy Beaven
PLAYERS: 4
START TIME: 10 AM and 1 PM
DURATION: 90-120 mins

Divided Loyalties is a modular tabletop strategy fantasy wargame that combines elements from preconstructed deck building games and traditional tabletop war games. This is partway through its development, so feedback is very welcome.

GAME: Galactic Payload
DESIGNER: Nathan Ottenson
PLAYERS: 4
START TIME: 11 AM and 2 PM
DURATION: 120 mins.

Galactic Payload has been featured at past PGX and Chewsday Challenges, but designer Nathan Ottenson continues to make changes to the game, including an untested "Last Ship Standing" variant. Repeat play testers are welcome!

A series of five Starfinder Quests designed for 1st-level characters.

When a mysterious visitor comes to Absalom Station selling items belonging to a lost Starfinder, the Starfinder Society takes note. The PCs are dispatched to discover out how the recent arrival found these items, leading them on a series of quests beyond the Pact Worlds and into the stars.

"Into the Unknown" includes five, 1-hour adventures that take the PCs from exploring Absalom Station, to partaking in starship combat, to exploring an alien world. The fifth adventure in the series provides a stunning conclusion that takes the PC's previous accomplishments into account for a climactic final showdown against an enemy starship.
