International Tabletop Day (or ITTD) is on April 28th this year and it’s coming up fast!
We have several demos and a tournament planned for the day. What we are striving to do is let players have a good time and teach newcomers how to play the games. There is no age limit and no experience with these games are required to play. We are just wanting to make this nerdy holiday fun for all!
We will be starting out the morning with a Mansions of Madness demo:
“Fight for your life in Mansions of Madness Second Edition, the app-assisted horror game inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. From the makers of Eldritch Horror, this fully cooperative game takes you and up to four other players on a harrowing adventure through the dark and desolate halls and alleyways of Arkham. Much like the original Mansions of Madness game, the second edition offers a number of thrilling and confounding scenarios, each with a unique and unpredictable map, intricate puzzles, and bloodthirsty monsters.”
Around the same time the demo for Arkham Horror: The Card Game will start:
“You and your friend (or up to three friends with two Core Sets) become characters within the quiet New England town of Arkham. You have your talents, sure, but you also have your flaws. Perhaps you’ve dabbled a little too much in the writings of the Necronomicon, and its words continue to haunt you. Perhaps you feel compelled to cover up any signs of otherworldly evils, hampering your own investigations in order to protect the quiet confidence of the greater population. Perhaps you’ll be scarred by your encounters with a ghoulish cult. No matter what compels you, no matter what haunts you, you’ll find both your strengths and weaknesses reflected in your custom deck of cards, and these cards will be your resources as you work with your friends to unravel the world’s most terrifying mysteries.”
All day demos!
Star Wars: Legion
“Warfare is an inescapable part of the Star Wars universe, from the blow dealt to the Rebel Alliance in the Battle of Hoth to a few Rebel strike teams taking on a legion of stormtroopers stationed on Endor. Seize your chance to get your boots on the ground and lead your troops to victory with Star Wars™: Legion, a miniatures game of thrilling infantry battles in the Star Wars universe!”
“No two games of Twilight Imperium are ever identical—at the start of each galactic age, the game board is uniquely and strategically constructed using 51 galaxy tiles that feature everything from lush new planets to supernovas, from asteroid fields to gravity rifts. Players are dealt a hand of these tiles and take turns creating the galaxy around Mecatol Rex, the capital planet seated in the center of the board. An ion storm may block your race from progressing through the galaxy while a fortuitously placed gravity rift may protect you from your closest foes. The galaxy is yours to both craft and dominate.”
“Everyverse is the complete role-playing game. It features:
-As you like it: 5 methods of character generation.
-Standard Distribution: Uses the same scale as used in measuring real-world IQ for more meaningful information at a glance.
-Cascades: Tree-like arrays of skills from general to specific
-The Attempt: A single method to resolve all outcomes. Lets you keep your nose out of a rule book.
-System Conversion: Convert from any other gaming system to Everyverse RPG”
There are currently 3 spots available for this demo so if you would like to participate for this particular game please give us a call or message us on Facebook!
“Redemption is one of the few surviving members of the first generation of collectible card games, tracing its roots all the way back to the days of Legend of the Five Rings and Overpower, 13 years after its initial release at Origins ’95, the game is in its fourth edition, and boasts ten expansions and a recently-released 10th Anniversary Edition Starter Deck set. Recently, it has also come out with two expansions which were released in tins: Faith of our Fathers (FooF) and Rock of Ages (RoA).
At its core, the gameplay is simple: use your Heroes to rescue Lost Souls from your opponent’s Land of Bondage, and use your Evil Characters to defend your own Lost Souls from your opponent. Enhancements may be played on these characters in turn to affect the final outcome of the battle. The characters and enhancements are divided up into colored “brigades” to emphasize theme and maintain variety and balance. The depth of gameplay is expanded with various support cards, such as Sites, Fortresses and Artifacts. Dominant cards may also be played by anybody at any time, and can turn the game around in an instant.”
There will be a couple of other demos for Malifaux, Magic:The Gathering Commander, and other board games. We’re still waiting on the details for those specific demos so please stay tuned to our Facebook page for more information!
