STAR WARS ARMADA TOURNAMENT

Sunday, Oct. 2     Noon – 5ish

                                                         $5 entry                            Standard tournament rules                                      In Star Wars: Armada, you assume the role of fleet admiral, serving with either the Imperial Navy or Rebel Alliance. You assemble your fleet and engage the enemy. Using the game’s unique maneuver tool, you steer your capital ships across the battlefield, even while squadrons of starfighters buzz around them. Then, as these ships exchange fire, it’s your job to issue the tactical commands that will decide the course of battle and, perhaps, the fate of the galaxy.

DEMO: MEDICI

Saturday, Oct. 1     Noon – 5 pm

Remake of an “old” favorite by Reiner Knizia, this game plays very well with varying numbers of people. The object is to accrue the most points during three rounds, which you do by spending your points to bid on sets of cards. Each turn the current player turns up one to three cards for all the players to bid on, with the highest bid taking all cards. The cards denote a commodity type and quantity/value. The round ends when each player’s ships are full, or the commodity card deck is exhausted. After each round, points are awarded to each player having the most of a given commodity, and to the one with the most valuable total “cargo load”.

DEMO: GRIFTERS

SATURDAY, Sep. 24     Noon – 5 PM

Grifters is a hand-building game that has all the fun of deck-building games, without the deck. Set in the Dystopian Universe, players take on the role of powerful crime bosses, building their criminal organizations by carefully recruiting new operatives and stealing as much money as you can from the corrupt government, malicious corporations, and your rival players. Each player starts the game with a hand of six Specialist cards, each with unique abilities. Your objective is to use this team of six Specialists to recruit more criminals, complete jobs, steal from the government coffers and swindle your opponents.

Grifters uses a unique card “cooldown” system to control the use of your cards, cycling operatives from hand to tabletop and back. End game bonuses are calculated for completing multiple jobs against the same target. The player with the most money WINS!
