GAMING IN MARCH 2020!

Every Wednesday EC and All Things Nerdy host “EC Game Night” where you can Learn & Play a featured game from 6-7pm, then stay for Open Play of that game from 7-8pm — or any of our gaming demos of your choice!

Saturdays’ “EC Game Day” events with All Things Nerdy run from Noon-2pm, and you can learn while you play!

 

 

3/4 – CABO: DELUXE

Spy, swap, and peek to find CABO the Unicorn in this fun, addictive, and simple card game. The player with the lowest total wins! This Deluxe Edition features amazing artwork, two decks with unique cardbacks, a full color, oversized scorepad, and a high quality two-piece box.

This 2nd Edition of CABO features modified rules, four player reference cards, and all new artwork.

 

 

3/7 – NO EVENT – GARAGE SALE

 

 

3/11 – KODAMA 3D

In Kodama 3D, players will grow trees in three-dimensional space. Players move their kodama pieces around a 4×4 grid of branch tiles in order to pick the branches they want to add to their tree. When a player adds a branch to their tree that doesn’t match what it is touching, they choose a goal card from the ones available. After all players have placed 12 branches on their tree, players score all of their goal cards. The player with the most points wins.

 

 


3/14 – NOVA LUNA

The new moon is a symbol for a new beginning, the perfect time to start something new and to plan your future — and that is what Nova Luna (lat. for new moon) is all about. In each round of this abstract tile-laying game, you have to plan your future anew, developing a new strategy to cope with what the moon wheel has to offer you.

On each turn, you have to decide which new tile from the moon wheel to place in front of you. Every new tile brings a new task you have to fulfill. In order to do so, you need to place tiles of the correct color adjacent to the task you want to complete, but these of course again bring you new tasks. Each time a task is solved, you may place one of your markers on it. So decide wisely and be the first one to place all your markers.

 

 


3/18 – DUNGEON MAYHEM: MONSTER MADNESS

In Dungeon Mayhem: Monster Madness, you play as one of six epic D&D monsters, each with their own way to charm, crush, disintegrate, and devour their foes.

Store all your Dungeon Mayhem cards in this monster-sized box, then select your favorite character and pit it against any other deck in the game line. Plus, you can enjoy bringing more adventurers into the fold with new rules to allow for mayhem with up to six players at once!

 

 


3/21 – ETTIN W/ CREATOR KEN SHANNON

From the mists of war, a pair of great nations rise together like a two-headed giant. They march across the land crushing their foes. As one, they combine their strengths, thwart their enemies, and achieve a triumphant destiny.

Ettin is a 2-8 player card-drafting game in which teams of two compete against each other in fierce skirmishes and fast global conflicts. Your alliance shares strategies, defenses, and resources as you face off against neighboring enemies. You can even expand to 16+ players with multiple copies of the game!

Each of the eight unique nations has a different focus and playing style, designed to be a formidable opponent or a reliable friend. Pairs of enemies and allies play at the same time, making even the most climactic global conflicts between eight players shockingly quick.

 

 


3/25 – CORSAIRS OF VALERIA

With the current Commodore lost at sea, you and your fellow Corsairs have set out to complete the traditional challenge – the first captain to sail the Valerian Isles and gather enough silver to fill six treasure chests will be the next Commodore. Seize the dice and roll, you scurvy Orc lover!

Coins earn you silver, Grog gives you the power to re-roll your dice, Cannons let you attack merchant ships or opponents to take their silver, and Maps move your ship forward. Watch out for the curses though, because each one you roll means a silver coin lost to Exekratys, or more commonly known as Skull Island to true Corsairs.

Your Captain card gives you a special player power that could help you win, if you use it to your best advantage.

The first player to reach Skull Island will get all of the coins lost to cursed dice, but if that doesn’t fill your sixth treasure chest, the race resets and you keep on sailing. And, if you no Captain gains their sixth treasure by the second time someone reaches Skull Island, the game ends and the Captain with the most Treasure and Silver wins the game!

 

 


3/28 – JAWS

In JAWS, one player takes on the role of the killer shark off Amity Island, while the other 1-3 players take on the roles of Brody, Hooper and Quint to hunt the shark. Character and event cards define player abilities and create game actions for humans and the shark. Gameplay is divided into two acts — Amity Island and The Orca — played on a double-sided board to replicate the film’s story:

-In the Amity Island phase, the shark menaces swimmers and avoids capture. Other players attempt to pinpoint the shark’s location and save swimmers from shark attacks.
-In the Orca phase, played on the reverse side of the game board, Brody, Hooper and Quint are aboard the sinking ship engaging in a climactic battle against the shark, while using additional action and strategy cards to defend the Orca from targeted shark attacks.

If humans kill the shark, they win; if the shark attack on the Orca succeeds, the great white shark wins.
