Gaming in February!


GAMING AT EC IN FEBRUARY!

Here are the games we will be hosting at EC during the month of February!

 

EC GAME NIGHT: CASH ‘N’ GUNS! SAVE 10%!
Wednesday, February 1st 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!

Plus, during this EC Game Night, from 6-9pm, if you purchase the featured game, you’ll SAVE 10%!

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

The featured game for this session is…

CASH ‘N’ GUNS

In an abandoned warehouse a gangster band is splitting its loot, but they can’t agree on the split! It’s time to let the guns talk and soon everyone is aiming at everyone. The richest surviving gangster wins the game!

Ca$h ‘n Guns helps you relive the best scenes of your favorite gangster movies. The goal is to have more money than anyone else after eight rounds while still being alive.

Each round, one player is the Boss, and he controls the pace of play. First, loot cards are revealed on the table to show what’s up for grabs. Next, players load their guns by secretly selecting either a “Bang!” or a “Click! Click!” card from their hand. The Boss counts to three, and on “Three” each player points his foam gun at someone else; due to his status, the Boss can tell one player who’s pointing a gun at him that he needs to point it in another direction. After a pause to observe threats and measure the seriousness in an opponent’s eyes, the Boss counts to three again and anyone who doesn’t want to risk getting shot can chicken out and remove themselves from the round.

Everyone who’s pointing a gun at someone still in the round now reveals their card, and anyone who’s the target of a “Bang!” takes a wound marker and gets none of the available loot. Starting with the Boss, everyone still in the round takes one loot card at a time from the table — money, diamonds, paintings, the position of Boss, medical care (to remove a wound), or a new bullet (to add a “Bang!” card to your hand) — until everything has been claimed.

After eight rounds, the game ends. Whoever has the most diamonds receives a big bonus, and paintings score based on the number of them that you’ve collected. Whoever has the most valuable stash wins!

 

 

HEROCLIX TOURNAMENT – DC/MARVEL/TMNT  MODERN AGE CONSTRUCTED
Friday, February 3rd from 6:30pm to 9pm

$3 entry fee. 300 points. Modern Age format. You may include resources relics, feats, Team Bases, or ‘Possessor” figures in your force. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is legal for this tournament.

We’re playing for Northstar from the Marvel Heroclix: Alpha Flight OP Kit.

What’s this about?
HeroClix tournaments are a sanctioned series of events that offer players opportunities for competitive play and exclusive figures. Tired of beating your friends? Bring your A-game here and see how you do. First time players at EC always get a figure!

What do you need to play?
For constructed tournaments, you’ll need to supply your team, meeting the requirements that week’s format issued. It’s also recommended that you bring your own maps, so you have the advantage should you win the roll for map choice. However, Dice and Maps are available in limited numbers.

What is ‘Modern’?
Modern Age is essentially an restricted format. Any figure can be used from the list in the link below:

http://win.wizkids.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=8927

How are the prizes distributed?
For standard Constructed play, we usually issue a prize for 1st place, 2nd place, and Fellowship. Fellowship is a sportsmanship prize, and can be awarded to someone who the judge feels carried themselves in an exemplary fashion in demeanor during the event. Usually, if everyone qualifies for the Fellowship prize, this is awarded via roll-off.

EC GAME DAY: HIVE!
Saturday, February 4th from noon to 2pm

Join us for EC Game Day, 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 noon to 2pm, where our friendly and patient friends from All Things Nerdy will teach you the game and answer your questions! Or you can join us for Open Play of the featured game, or any of our gaming demos during that time!

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

The featured game for this session is…

HIVE

Hive is a highly addictive strategic game for two players that is not restricted by a board and can be played anywhere on any flat surface. Hive is made up of twenty two pieces, eleven black and eleven white, resembling a variety of creatures each with a unique way of moving.

With no setting up to do, the game begins when the first piece is placed down. As the subsequent pieces are placed this forms a pattern that becomes the playing surface (the pieces themselves become the board). Unlike other such games, the pieces are never eliminated and not all have to be played. The object of the game is to totally surround your opponent’s queen, while at the same time trying to block your opponent from doing likewise to your queen. The player to totally surround his opponent’s queen wins the game.

 

 

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!

ALL THINGS NERDY MEMBERS: for each friend you bring, you will get an ADDITIONAL raffle ticket!

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

The featured game for this session is…

LOVE LETTER

All of the eligible young men (and many of the not-so-young) seek to woo the princess of Tempest. Unfortunately, she has locked herself in the palace, and you must rely on others to take your romantic letters to her. Will yours reach her first?

Love Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck for 2–4 players. Your goal is to get your love letter into Princess Annette’s hands while deflecting the letters from competing suitors. From a deck with only sixteen cards, each player starts with only one card in hand; one card is removed from play. On a turn, you draw one card, and play one card, trying to expose others and knock them from the game. Powerful cards lead to early gains, but make you a target. Rely on weaker cards for too long, however, and your letter may be tossed in the fire!

 

MARVEL HEROCLIX: SPIDER-HAM ORGANIZED PLAY EVENT!
Friday, February 10th from 6:30pm to 9pm

The wall-crawling swine, Peter Porker, returns to the HeroClix tabletop this February with the Marvel HeroClix: Spider-Ham Organized Play Event.

Players will be visiting their friendly neighborhood local game stores for the chance to win the Marvel HeroClix: Spider-Ham Convention Exclusive, previously only available in the U.S. at conventions.

MODERN AGE CONSTRUCTED FORMAT. $5 entry fee. 300 points. Marvel HeroClix only, please!

We’re playing for Peter Porker, the Amazing Spider-Ham!

EC GAME DAY: WALKING DEAD ALL OUT WAR!
Saturday, February 11th from noon to 2pm

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 noon to 2pm, where our friendly and patient friends from All Things Nerdy will teach you the game and answer your questions! Or you can join us for Open Play of the featured game, or any of our gaming demos during that time!

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

The featured game for this session is…

WALKING DEAD ALL OUT WAR

The Walking Dead: All Out War is a tactical head-to-head game set in the walker-strewn Georgia countryside, a survival miniatures game from Mantic Games based on the characters from the pages of the bestselling The Walking Dead comic series. Your group will be pitted against other groups in a bitter fight for supplies, but the Walkers react to your every move. In this game, everyone and everything is trying to kill you.

In more detail, each player controls their own group of survivors made up of popular characters from The Walking Dead storyline, such as Rick, Shane, Michonne and many more. Each survivor is represented by a finely-detailed plastic miniature, which can be painted in your color scheme of choice. It comes with a character card highlighting their game stats and unique abilities, and it can be upgraded with a selection of weapon and equipment cards.

The game is set around Atlanta and the surrounding suburbs, and contains a gaming mat and a selection of barricades, abandoned cars and supplies to give it that authentic The Walking Dead atmosphere. Your survivors move across the board using the measuring stick included with the game, and you use the terrain to block Walker routes, sneak up on opposing survivors, or raid enemy camps for supplies.

During the game, you fight a bitter battle for resources against a rival group of survivors – but be careful not to make too much noise as you’ll draw the attention of the Walkers, which are controlled by an AI system developed specifically for this game. They attack anyone who comes within reach — and because they are AI-controlled, you can play the game solo.

The base game includes rules for running simple campaigns and basic guidelines for designing your own characters.

 

 


RANTS & RAVES PRE-LAUNCH PARTY!
Wednesday, February 15th from 6pm to 9pm

Your friends here at EC will be hosting the Pre-Launch Party for the next big party game — Rants and Raves Card Game!!!

Join us as we play copies of Rants and Raves from 6pm to 9pm, just a few days before the game hits Kickstarter on 2/18/17!!! This is YOUR chance to be part of the final public play test of the game before its launch!!! Your feedback and ideas will be heard by some of the developers themselves as they join us for this night of insane RANTS and RAVES!!!

Don’t forget that if you enjoy our pre-launch party, or you simply can’t make it out to this event, then be sure to join us for our Rants & Raves Launch Party on Saturday the 18th!

Please keep in mind this is an 18 AND UP game so be sure to find a sitter for the kids!!!

 

 

RANTS & RAVES LAUNCH PARTY!
Saturday, February 18th from 3pm to 6pm

It’s the BIG day!!! Rants and Raves Card Game will be live on Kickstarter 2/18/17!!!

Join us as EC hosts the Rants and Raves Launch Party, where we will be playing copies of the game from 3pm to 6pm!!! This is your chance to try the game with the developers before you back it on kickstarter!!!

Are you looking for the next big party game? If so, look no further!!! Rants and Raves brings the fun and hilarious moments you expect from some of the biggest party games on the market and ramps them up by over 9,000!!!

Put simply, Rants and Raves is a game where 2 players will be arguing to convince the judge that their opinion is the only opinion worth having!!! Each player will draw a card, showing a personality or character they will be pretending to be. They will then draw a card showing a topic on which they will be arguing about. They flip a coin and it will ether land on RANTS or RAVES, which basically means they will be 100% for the topic or 100% against it. Players then act out the argument to try and convince the judge they deserve the win. The combination of these mechanics lead to a game that will never be played the same way twice and you will never have a dull moment!!!

Please keep in mind this is an 18 AND UP game so be sure to find a sitter for the kids!!!

 

 

EC GAME NIGHT: CATAN!
Wednesday, February 22nd 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…

CATAN

In Catan (formerly The Settlers of Catan), players try to be the dominant force on the island of Catan by building settlements, cities, and roads. On each turn dice are rolled to determine what resources the island produces. Players collect these resources (cards)—wood, grain, brick, sheep, or stone—to build up their civilizations to get to 10 victory points and win the game.

Setup includes randomly placing large hexagonal tiles (each showing a resource or the desert) in a honeycomb shape and surrounding them with water tiles, some of which contain ports of exchange. Number disks, which will correspond to die rolls (two 6-sided dice are used), are placed on each resource tile. Each player is given two settlements (think: houses) and roads (sticks) which are, in turn, placed on intersections and borders of the resource tiles. Players collect a hand of resource cards based on which hex tiles their last-placed house is adjacent to. A robber pawn is placed on the desert tile.

A turn consists of possibly playing a development card, rolling the dice, everyone (perhaps) collecting resource cards based on the roll and position of houses (or upgraded cities—think: hotels) unless a 7 is rolled, turning in resource cards (if possible and desired) for improvements, trading cards at a port, and trading resource cards with other players. If a 7 is rolled, the active player moves the robber to a new hex tile and steals resource cards from other players who have built structures adjacent to that tile.

Points are accumulated by building settlements and cities, having the longest road and the largest army (from some of the development cards), and gathering certain development cards that simply award victory points. When a player has gathered 10 points (some of which may be held in secret), he announces his total and claims the win.

Catan has won multiple awards and is one of the most popular games in recent history due to its amazing ability to appeal to experienced gamers as well as those new to the hobby.

Die Siedler von Catan was originally published by Kosmos and has gone through multiple editions. It was licensed by Mayfair and has undergone four editions as The Settlers of Catan. In 2015, it was formally renamed Catan to better represent itself as the core and base game of the Catan series. It has been re-published in two travel editions, portable edition and compact edition, as a special gallery edition (replaced in 2009 with a family edition), as an anniversary wooden edition, as a deluxe 3D collector’s edition, in the basic Simply Catan, as a beginner version, and with an entirely new theme in Japan and Asia as Settlers of Catan: Rockman Edition. Numerous spin-offs and expansions have also been made for the game.

The Settlers of Catan is the original game in the Catan Series.

 

 

HEROCLIX TOURNAMENT: DEADPOOL & X-FORCE PRE-RELEASE
Friday, February 24th from 6:30pm to 9pm

Players will have an opportunity to get a sneak peek at the figures from the Marvel HeroClix: Deadpool & X-Force set before official world-wide release! The Marvel HeroClix: Deadpool & X-Force set breaks the 4th wall with Deadpool’s return alongside his friends, henchmen, foes and more!

Cost of entry is the price of two 5-figure booster packs. You will build your 300 point team out of the figures you pull from your two packs.

All players will receive two packs from the upcoming Deadpool & X-Force set.

The prize is an unannounced game element exclusive to this event.
Maps will also be distributed on a limited basis at the judge’s discretion.
