EC Gaming Events in March!

EC GAME DAY: ONITAMA!
Saturday, March 4th from noon to 2pm

Join our friends at All Things Nerdy, as they host our EC Game Day, featuring ONITAMA!!!

Onitama is a two player abstract strategy game from Arcane Wonders, where players take on the role of a Master, guiding their monk followers, attempting to defeat your opponent armed only with a handful of moves, your cunning and your wits!.

If you’re not familiar with the game, you can easily learn as you play in a friendly, patient, and welcoming atmosphere!!! All are welcome!!!

 

EC GAME DAY II: CONAN!
Saturday, March 4th from 3pm to 5pm

In addition to our EC Game Day: Onitama! event, we’re offering a second gaming event, starring everyone’s favorite Cimmerian, Conan the Barbarian!!!

Join us for a Learn & Play event of this impressive board game from Asmodee and Monolith Games!!!

From Asmodee:

UNLEASH YOUR INNER BARBARIAN!
Conan’s immersive and asymmetrical scenarios pit one to four heroes against a nefarious Overlord and his minions, and you resolve your battles with an innovative combat system that almost lets you feel the strain in your muscles and the weight of your sword in your hand.

With its muscular combat mechanics, its evocative scenarios, the lavish maps upon which they’re played, and the seventy-four detailed miniatures with which you play them, Conan transforms your adventures into the stuff of legend!

ENTER AN AGE OF BLOOD, GOLD, AND GLORY!
Stunning components and intuitive mechanics immerse you in a world of brutal combat, bloodthirsty barbarians, and sinister villains.

THE DEFINITIVE CONAN EXPERIENCE!
Authenticity matters, and Conan was developed in collaboration with leading Robert E. Howard scholar Patrice Louinet in order to ensure the game remained faithful to the setting and characters of Howard’s sword and sorcery tales.

COMBATS SO BRUTAL, THEY’LL LEAVE YOU GASPING FOR AIR!
You begin with a certain number of energy gems that you spend to move, attack, or interact with the world around you. You’ll need to rest to recover, and if you bleed? Your energy spills out of your fatigue zone into the wound zone where it can’t be recovered!

The Overlord uses energy gems similarly, but to activate entire units in his Book of Skelos. The Overlord can activate any two units, but he has to remain conscious of how much it will cost him.

Plays in 90 minutes, for 2-5 players; ages 14 and up!

 

EC GAME NIGHT: RAISE YOUR GOBLETS!

Wednesday, March 8th from 6pm to 9pm

Join us for EC Game Night, as our friends from All Things Nerdy host a Learn & Play session, followed by an Open Play session!

If you’re not familiar with the featured game, or need a quick refresher, you can join our Learn & Play from 6-7pm, where our friendly and patient friends from All Things Nerdy will teach you the game and answer your questions! Then you can join us for Open Play of the featured game, or any of our gaming demos, from 7-9pm!

NO ONE gets you into the game like Emerald City Comics!!!

The featured game for this session is…

RAISE YOUR GOBLETS

Have you felt the thrill of the struggle between life and death, sitting at the same table with your worst enemy and an unreasonable amount of poison? Don’t forget to bring some antidote when playing Raise Your Goblets!

In Raise Your Goblets, players take the roles of nobles at a banquet, each one with their own agenda of personal vendetta. Each player has wine, poison and antidote tokens they can pour into the goblets, trying to poison their enemies while staying alive themselves! Each noble also has a special ability that allows them to bend or even break a rule.

In more detail, each character has a plastic goblet, and each goblet is primed in secret at the start of the round with either wine, poison or antidote. On a turn, you take two actions, with actions being to peek inside your goblet, rotate all goblets left or right, swap your goblet with someone else’s, or secretly add one of your wine, poison or antidote tokens to any goblet. Once someone has “served” all of their wine, they can call a toast on their turn instead of doing anything else. Each player, including the toaster, takes one more action, then everyone drinks. If you have more poison than antidote, you die.

What’s your goal in doing all of this? Well, at the start of a round you are given a target to kill, and everyone knows who is targeting whom. If at the end of a round, your target is dead, you score 1 point; if you’re alive, you score 1 point; if both of these things are true, you score a bonus point (3 total). Also, whoever has the most wine in their cup scores 1 point. If someone has died, they receive a new noble card, and at the end of three rounds, whoever has scored the most points wins.

 

EC GAME DAY: MYSTERIUM!!!
Saturday, March 11th from noon to 2pm

Mysterium Organized Play event!

Exclusive prize support for participants!

Learn to Play & Open Play Noon – 2pm

About the game:

A horrible crime has been committed on the grounds of Warwick Manor and it’s up to the psychic investigators to get to the bottom of it. In Mysterium, one player takes on the role of the ghost and over the course of a “week,” tries to lead the investigators to their culprit. Each night the team will be met with visions, but what is the ghost trying to tell you? Can the psychics determine the weapon, location and killer or will a violent criminal pull off the perfect murder?
