HERE KITTY, KITTY! Game Demonstration!
Sunday, April 3rd from noon to 5pm

Double Exposure, Inc. Envoy and Emerald City present a Here Kitty, Kitty! game demonstration!

Herald Bill Eastman will be with us once again to demonstrate the game. He will be teaching new players how to play the game and to show off to the public all the fantastic components that make up this excellent game!

Here’s some info about the game:

Your neighborhood has a cat problem! The problem is that all those cats don’t belong to YOU! Everyone in the neighborhood wants to claim those adorable kitties for themselves.

Outwit your fellow feline aficionados as you lure cats onto your property, move cats into your house, and steal cats from your neighbors. All’s fair in love and cat collecting!

There are no blenders or explosions in this game, but if you use your “Catlike Reflexes” and avoid “Stray Dogs” and “Hairballs,” you might just “Land on Your Feet!”

Here’s a link to the BoardGameGeek page for the game:

POKEMON YOUTH LEAGUE MEETUP
POKEMON YOUTH LEAGUE
Sundays from 4pm to 6pm

Ages 8-16
New players always welcome!

Our Pokémon Youth League provides a nearby place for you to get together with other fans of both the Pokémon Trading Card Game and the Pokémon video games, and have some fun!

Using your own cards and Pokémon video games, you can play, trade, and even earn cool prizes! The best part is that you can do all this with other Pokémon players who love collecting and playing just as much as you do!

What IS the Pokémon Trading Card Game?

Download the rules here…
http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-tcg/rules

…or stop by during our events to see first-hand how the game is played!

“You are a Pokémon Trainer! You travel across the land, battling other Trainers with your Pokémon, creatures that love to battle and that have amazing powers! Your deck of cards represents your Pokémon as well as items and allies that help you on your adventures.

Trading card games are strategy based and use collectible cards to let each player customize his or her game. The best way to learn to play the Pokémon TCG is with a Trainer Kit. This has two ready-to-play decks that walk you through the game, step by step. From there, try a theme deck to get an idea of the different kinds of decks out there. Once you’re ready, you can start building your collection of cards with Pokémon TCG booster packs. Trade with your friends for the strongest Pokémon or collect all your favorites! Then, build your own 60-card deck, play with your friends, and show off your own personal Pokémon team!

In the Pokémon TCG, your Pokémon battle your opponent’s Pokémon. The first player to take all of his or her Prize cards wins! Also, if your opponent cannot draw a card at the beginning of his or her turn, or has no Pokémon left in play, you win the game!”

    GLOOMHAVEN

    Gloomhaven is a game of Euro-inspired tactical combat in a persistent world of shifting motives. Players will take on the role of a wandering adventurer with their own special set of skills and their own reasons for traveling to this dark corner of the world. Players must work together out of necessity to clear out menacing dungeons and forgotten ruins. In the process, they will enhance their abilities with experience and loot, discover new locations to explore and plunder, and expand an ever-branching story fueled by the decisions they make.

    This is a game with a persistent and changing world that is ideally played over many game sessions. After a scenario, players will make decisions on what to do, which will determine how the story continues, kind of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book. Playing through a scenario is a cooperative affair where players will fight against automated monsters using an innovative card system to determine the order of play and what a player does on their turn.

    Each turn, a player chooses two cards to play out of their hand. The number on the top card determines their initiative for the round. Each card also has a top and bottom power, and when it is a player’s turn in the initiative order, they determine whether to use the top power of one card and the bottom power of the other, or vice-versa. Players must be careful, though, because over time they will permanently lose cards from their hands. If they take too long to clear a dungeon, they may end up exhausted and be forced to retreat.

    CASTLES OF BURGUNDY: THE DICE GAME

    As influential sovereigns, expand your estates through trade and commerce. Combine the dice to your advantage and find the strategy that will lead you to victory.
    The famous strategy game now in pure dice game!

    A "dice version" of The Castles of Burgundy.

    The game comes with 5 dice: A timer die, 2 number dice, and 2 color dice.

    Like the board game, the idea is to fill as many things on your board, and get the most points, mostly by completing color regions.

    One player rolls the dice, and then everyone picks 2 dice to use: A color die, representing a type of hex on the board, and a number.

    A hex can only be filled on the board if it's adjacent to an already-filled hex, or your starting castle, and each type of hex has its own rules for which number can be used to fill it, and its own reward.

    When completing a region of hexes, you get points, as well as a reward that you can then cross off to activate, such as workers and monks that let you treat a number or color die as having any value, and silver that lets you use a second combination of dice on a turn.

    The timer die sets the pace of the game, and also triggers a "shipping" action, where players can cross off collected crates for points.

    There are 4 different board layouts included. Solo mode is included.

    HUNT FOR THE RING

    In Hunt for the Ring, one player takes the role of Frodo and his companions, who are journeying from the Shire to Rivendell, while up to four other players represent the Nazgûl who are trying to hunt down the hobbits. While traveling, Frodo and others must resist being corrupted by the Ring that he wears.

    Hunt for the Ring is a hidden movement game played in two chapters, with each chapter being played on a different game board. In the first chapter, the Frodo player attempts to move from the Shire to Bree, gaining corruption points if they fail to do so after sixteen turns. If the Frodo player succeeds, they can either record their exit point (and other game details) to play the second chapter at a later time, or they can continue immediately, with the second chapter having the Frodo player move from Bree to Rivendell. In this chapter, the Frodo player doesn't control the hobbits directly, but instead draws cards from a journey deck, with each card showing one of many paths to Rivendell.

    STAR WARS DESTINY: LEGACIES

    Expand your Star Wars: Destiny collection with Legacies, a new set of booster packs for the collectible dice and card game!

    Legacies continues the evolution of Star Wars: Destiny, expanding on classic archetypes while introducing new mechanisms, including a new die symbol and a new card type. As a new Base Set, Legacies is a solid starting point for Destiny newcomers while introducing innovative new concepts that challenge classic gameplay and tactics.

    TOPIARY

    In Topiary, players try to position their visitors on the outer edge of a beautiful topiary garden in order to give them the best view possible. Visitors can see the closest topiary sculpture to them and any behind that, in the same sight line, that are larger. You can score bonus points for visitors who see multiple topiary sculptures of the same type. Players slowly fill in the garden by adding tiles until everyone has placed all their visitors.

    DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS: DUNGEON TILES REINCARNATED

    Breathe life into your tabletop game with these full color dungeon tiles. Infinitely expandable and easy to set up, these dungeon tiles allow you to create the adventures you want to play.

    Available in the following sets:

    -Dungeon

    Tiles to make fantastic dungeon maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring dungeon rooms, corridors, caverns, tunnels, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    -Wildernesss

    Tiles to make fantastic wilderness maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring grasslands, ruins, sandy beaches, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    -City

    Tiles to make fantastic city maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring city streets, buildings, sewers, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    VALERIAN: ALPHA MISSIONS

    Valerian: The Alpha Missions gives fans of tabletop gaming and the Valerian franchise the opportunity to discover Alpha, a vast metropolis in which species from across the universe gather over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence, and cultures. After assembling a team of agents, players must cooperate to explore a contested zone of Alpha, race to complete objectives while battling and evading enemies. Complete the missions and get to the extraction site in time to win!

    The game board consists of randomly placed tiles that are revealed as agents move around the map, creating a unique experience each game. Players will never know who or what they might encounter – enemies could attack or players may discover valuable resources to power their mission gear. Each player must decide whether to split up and accomplish their objectives faster or sacrifice valuable resources to save their teammates. As the clock runs down and enemies gain ground, only the most skilled team of agents will complete their missions to return as heroes.
