Battletech

Friday 2-6pm
Saturday Noon-Midnight
Sunday Noon-4pm


Bootcamp

Bootcamp is designed primarily for players new to Battletech, or those needing a refresher on the sequence of play. Players will learn the basic rules for moving, firing, and resolving damage in a quick, fun game against an opponent. Bootcamp is run concurrently with Battletech Grinder, and upon completion of Bootcamp, players join directly into the Grinder game. A typical Bootcamp session runs 30-45 minutes and can accommodate up to four players, with new session starting after the completion of the prior one. All materials are provided.


Grinder

Battletech Grinder is a progressive free-for-all Battlemech combat, designed to transition players from the introductory rules and technology of the Bootcamp scenario to the full scope and technology of the Battletech Total Warfare Core rule set. Players begin with a light Battlemech, equipped with the most basic weapons. When that unit is destroyed in combat, the player re-enters the Grinder with a more powerful Battlemech equipped with more advanced weapons and new equipment, and this continues until the player commands the most advanced and deadly units in the game. This allows for the teaching of the rule set in a stepped fashion. Players can play as long as they wish, leave, and return during the scheduled event listing if they wish due to the continuous nature of the Grinder. Players who have not played before should complete the Battletech Bootcamp prior to entering into the Grinder. Grinder can accommodate from 2 to 14 players. All materials are provided.

Dead of Winter

Friday 10am-Noon

Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological "crossroads" game set during the zombie apocalypse.

Players work together to achieve one common victory condition, but each player also has a secret agenda to complete as well. Their secret objective could be a harmless psychological tick, a dangerous obsession that could put the main objective at risk, a desire to sabotage the main mission, or worst of all: vengeance against the colony!

Fortress America

Friday 8pm-Midnight

Fortress America, originally part of Milton Bradley's Gamemaster series, depicts an alternate near-future in which all of the world attacks and invades the continental United States. From the west arrives hordes of Asian foes; from the south arrives a union of South American countries through Mexico, and from the east lands come legions of Soviets who have taken over all of Europe. America besieged has to rely on the remaining ground and air forces left in the country along with partisan uprisings to defend mom's apple pie.

Up to four players can play Fortress America, one player being the U.S. and up to three others controlling the invading units from a particular direction. Being a near future scenario, the units in the game include conventional infantry, APCs, hovertanks, helicopters, bombers, US partisan units, and special "Star Wars" laser relay systems that fire from space.

The game emphasizes combined arms in that players receive a bonus if infantry, mechanized, and air power are all used in a conflict. For the invading countries, all the units they receive for the game are given at the start so they must manage them wisely. The U.S., however, starts with a skeleton defense and builds up throughout the game through a random deck of cards. Further, the U.S. slowly builds up its Star Wars system, so the longer the invaders are delayed, the more powerful the U.S. becomes both conventionally and through its defense system.

Ingress

Sunday, Noon-4pm

Ingress is a global phenomenon downloaded over 7 million times and compatible with Android and iOS devices. It is an augmented reality massively multiplayer online role playing GPS-dependent game created by Niantic Labs, a startup within Google. Game play involves agents from two opposing factions, the Enlightened and the Resistance, fighting for control of virtual "portals" which exist at actual places in the real world, and that players must go to and move between. Control of those portals, and the linking of them together to make "control fields" to capture human "mind units" over vast territory is the essential object of the game. Often referred to as a blend of capture the flag and geocaching, Ingress is NOT a game for those that want to sit on a couch and play all day. You must get out into, and see your world. As the slogan goes, IT'S TIME TO MOVE.

Different versions of these cards will be available in booster packs, allowing for more customization of your team. Players use these dice to collect energy, recruit new heroes, and battle head-to-head. In addition, each player brings two basic action cards to the game, which are placed in the center of the table; both players can purchase these cards. A player wins once the opposing player has been reduced to zero life.

The Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs. X-Men starter set comes with 44 custom dice, 38 cards, two dice bags, and a core rulebook. Booster packs include two dice with two matching character cards.

Robotech RPG: Tactics

Friday 8-10pm
Saturday 10am-2pm
Sunday 10am-2pm

Robotech RPG Tactics is a tactical miniatures game set in the Robotech universe. While the 1/285th scale game pieces can be used as a companion to the Robotech RPG, the game system is designed to be played as a tabletop miniatures game. Players build armies of multiple squadrons of mecha to fight it out in scenario-driven, objective-based game play. Take command of the fighting forces of the United Earth Defense Force (UEDF) valiantly defending Earth from alien annihilation – or lead the massive clone armies of the Zentraedi Armada to recover an alien artifact of immense power and enslave humankind. Depending on the faction, and their choice of mecha, a player's army may include anywhere from two game pieces to as many as you desire! The rules are scalable from small skirmishes to mass combat with hundreds per side.

Robotech RPG Tactics uses a dynamic turn system. Players trade off activating

squadrons during each turn, ensuring that a player never has to sit and wait while his opponent moves and attacks with his entire army. By using alternating activation of squadrons, the game's action unfolds at a fast and furious pace, allowing large scale battles to be easily carried out in a single evening. Each player receives a number of Command Points each turn based on the number of mecha they have on the field, and the quality of their officers. Command Points are spent throughout the turn on maneuvers such as boosted movement, devastating weapon salvos, breakneck dodging counterattacks, and potent special abilities.

The wide variety of mecha in the boxed game bring to bear the myriad and awesome weapon systems from the Robotech universe to lay waste to your foes. Even the battlefield itself can alter over the course of the game as buildings are leveled by destruction unleashed during the battle.

Smash Up

Friday 4-8pm
Saturday 4-8pm

Smash Up, designed by Paul Peterson, is the all-new Shufflebuilding game from Alderac Entertainment Group. In Smash Up players take two factions, such as pirates, ninja, robots, zombies, and more, and combine their decks into a force to be reckoned with!

When the game begins, players take turns drafting one of several faction decks. Once each player has two decks, they shuffle them together, combining their distinct abilities into a unique 40-card deck. Players then deal out a number of Base cards, and play their decks to attempt to have the most power on a base when it is scored.

It may sound simple, but how simple is it when your opponent’s Zombie-Ninja Assassinate your minions then create an Outbreak, loading the Base with minions from their discard pile? Or when their Pirate-Dinosaurs Full Sail onto the base with the mighty King Rex, whose massive power dwarfs that of other minions?

Each combination gives a different experience, Pirate-Aliens play very different than Pirate-Zombies, and with 8 factions in the base set there are tons of combinations to try out!
