Every Wednesday from 6 – 8pm, EC and All Things Nerdy host “EC Game Night” where you can Learn & Play, 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!
Saturdays, gaming events with All Things Nerdy run from Noon – 2pm, and you can learn while you play!
JURASSIC PARK DANGER – 6/2
The first visitors have arrived at Jurassic Park to see its miraculous dinosaurs firsthand, but chaos has hit Isla Nublar: The power is out, and the prehistoric creatures are on the hunt!
In Jurassic Park: Danger! Adventure Strategy Game, one player controls the T. Rex, Dilophosaurus, and Velociraptor, prowling through the jungle to attack the humans. The other players team up as characters from the classic movie, struggling to get Jurassic Park back online and escape the island before they fall prey to old-time predators!
LUCIDITY: SIX-SIDED NIGHTMARE – 6/5
Lucidity: Six-sided Nightmares is a press-your-luck dice collection and manipulation game for 2–4 players. It takes less than a minute to learn and 20–30 minutes to play.
Whenever you close your eyes, you fall into the dream realm: a world of vivid hallucinations and dark monsters. You must use your wits to draw power from the dream realm and break its hold on you, before the monsters can track you down and consume you!
Each turn, you randomly draw a number of dice from a shared bag. This represents the dreams you will encounter this turn. Return two to the bag to represent your chosen path through the dream realm and roll the remainder. After you have suffered the effects of your roll, you must choose whether to rest (and clear your card of one or two dreams) or press on and try your luck on another turn – going deeper and rolling more dice every time you do so.
You win by collecting 15 power symbols on your rolled dice – freeing yourself from the dream world’s grasp. But if you collect too many of the wrong symbols, you may find yourself twisted and turned by the monsters, until you too become a dreaded Nightmare. Or something’s dinner.
Should you become a Nightmare, your game completely changes. You can still win, but only by consuming the dreams of the remaining Dreamers, or sending minions after them to prevent them from becoming more powerful than you. If nobody has escaped by the end of the game, the most powerful Nightmare is the victor.
Without dreams, you cannot win. But without control, you risk becoming that which you fear most.
Or maybe that was your plan all along.
ROLL PLAYER – 6/9
Mighty heroes don’t just appear out of thin air — you must create them! Race, class, alignment, skills, traits, and equipment are all elements of the perfect hero, who is ready to take on all opposition in the quest for glory and riches.
In Roll Player, you will compete to create the greatest fantasy adventurer who has ever lived, preparing your character to embark on an epic quest. Roll and draft dice to build up your character’s attributes. Purchase weapons and armor to outfit your hero. Train to gain skills and discover your hero’s traits to prepare them for their journey. Earn Reputation Stars by constructing the perfect character. The player with the greatest Reputation wins the game and will surely triumph over whatever nefarious plot lies ahead!
WELCOME TO THE DUNGEON – 6/13
Welcome to the Dungeon — first released as Dungeon of Mandom — is a push-your-luck dungeon delve in which 2-4 players take turns essentially daring each other to go into a dungeon with less equipment than they start off with while filling the dungeon with monsters. Players can win the game by winning 2 rounds or get eliminated from the game by losing 2 rounds. Each player has a 2-sided players card that has a white side and a red side. The first win taps the player card and the 1st loss flips the card over to the red side. A 2nd loss will have the player turn the card back into the box.
The game is played in rounds. The player sets up the base character and all the equipment equipped. This represents every player as a fully equipped dungeon delver.
Each round, the start player (the person who challenged the dungeon last or the last player to be in a dungeon) can choose to draw a card from the monster deck or pass their turn.
If they choose to draw, they can do one of two things: (1) keep it and de-equip an equipment or (2) place it face down in the dungeon. Placing it face down in the dungeon creates the dungeon deck and fills the dungeon with monsters that the challenger will have to face later. If they choose to pass their turn, they cannot participate in the rest of the round. Once only one person is left after all the other players have passed their turn, that player then becomes the challenger and must go into the dungeon with only the equipment he has equipped.
The player then flips cards off the dungeon deck and fights the monsters within. Some equipment allow you to null the enemy damage or be able to withstand it by increasing your HP. If the player survives the dungeon with at least 1 HP, they win that round. If not, they lose. The players then reshuffles all the cards to make a new monster deck and re-equips all the equipment to start a new round.
The game ends when someone has won twice or one player is the last man standing.
Welcome to the Dungeon includes four different sets of character cards whereas Dungeon of Mandom has only a single character.
FREE RPG DAY – 6/16
More details to be announced soon on our Facebook page:
WEREBEASTS – 6/20
You are a key player in the lucrative but dangerous business of collecting werebeasts. Armed with only your good looks and several cans of indescribably tasty werechow, you must bid for the werebeasts you need — and also for the ones you don’t in hopes of throwing your opponents off track.
Your fellow collectors in Werebeasts are also collecting certain creatures that have the most value to them. If you can hide your intentions long enough, you’ll be rewarded. If you can make it to the end of the game without getting caught, you just might win.
It’s TITAN time! The Titan cards, first introduced in Smash Up: Big in Japan are now back in this all-new event. Featuring Titans for various factions including Ghosts, Pirates, Changerbots and more, the Titan Event Kit will provide new strategies for many of your favorite classic Smash Up factions!
SPARKLE KITTY – 6/27
Nobody puts princess in a tower! Sparkle Kitty is an adorably fun, social, and magical spell card game for all ages, sizes and genders.
Dark forces have trapped a group of princesses into cursed towers. But luckily these are no ordinary princesses and you are no ordinary player. Take matters into your own hands and harness the simple and sweet words into special spell combinations to set yourself free.
In Ex Libris, you are a collector of rare and valuable books in a thriving gnomish village. Recently, the Mayor and Village Council have announced an opening for a Grand Librarian: a prestigious (and lucrative) position they intend to award to the most qualified villager! Unfortunately, several of your book collector colleagues (more like acquaintances, really) are also candidates.
To outshine your competition, you need to expand your personal library by sending your trusty assistants out into the village to find the most impressive tomes. Sources for the finest books are scarce, so you need to beat your opponents to them when they pop up.
You have only a week before the Mayor’s Official Inspector comes to judge your library, so be sure your assistants have all your books shelved! The Inspector is a tough cookie and will use her Official Checklist to grade your library on several criteria including shelf stability, alphabetical order, and variety — and don’t think she’ll turn a blind eye to books the Council has banned! You need shrewd planning and cunning tactics (and perhaps a little magic) to surpass your opponents and become Grand Librarian!
