DRAGONFIRE DBG

 

Dragonfire is a cooperative deck-building game set within the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Players choose from a number of races — from dwarf to elf, half-orc to human — while assuming the quintessential roles of cleric, rogue, fighter, and wizard. Equipped with weapons, spells, and magic items, players begin their adventure along the famed Sword Coast, then expand to other locales across the Forgotten Realms, such as Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter, and Waterdeep in future expansions. Along the way, players level up their characters, opening access to additional equipment, feats, and more. Join the quest, and build your own legend!

 

 

RICK AND MORTY DBG: CLOSE RICK-COUNTERS OF THE RICK KIND

 

Based on the episode “Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind,” in Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game players play as and against different versions of Rick by building a better deck than their opponents.

The deck-building game is built on Cryptozoic’s Cerberus Engine as various versions of Rick serve as both players’ oversized Hero cards and the Villainous Council of Ricks. Each player’s deck starts with the following cards: seven Genius Waves cards that give you Power, one Beth, one Jerry, and one Summer. The Beth, Jerry, and Summer cards do nothing, but can activate other cards. The “Kick” stack in other Cerberus games is now the Portal Gun stack. The Portal Gun activates the Portal deck, which transports a player’s hero to a random location from the episode or other popular places from the series. That player may then utilize that location during their turn and has the option of paying the cost of the location to put it into their deck.

 

CAMPY CREAUTRES

 

Players are mad scientist in need of precious mortals for future experiments. Rather than getting your hands dirty, your army of campy creatures awaits to do your bidding. Capture the most valuable mortals over the course of three nights to win. But be warned — the mortals won’t go down without a fight.

Campy Creatures is a ghoulish game of bluffing, deduction, and set collection for 2-5 players. Players begin each round with the same hand of creatures. Their goal is to capture valuable mortals by outguessing their opponents with the creatures they play. Each player has perfect information at the start, so knowing what a person might do in a particular situation is key.

 

 

BASTION

 

The castle is besieged! Hordes of monsters gather near the ancient walls and are about to smash open the castle gates. Mountain giants trample the fields, fire riders burn the surrounding settlements, and the ice dragon has nested on top of the citadel tower, horrifying the minds of the inhabitants of the bastion. Only a squad of stubborn heroes stands between the enemies and their ultimate victory.

Bastion is a cooperative castle defense game set in the Berserk universe, with 1 to 4 players taking on the roles of magical castle defenders. The castle is located in the center of the game board and is menaced by a great variety of invading enemies: dangerous beasts, ferocious warriors, terrible monsters, giants, mages, and even mighty dragons.

You will travel the bastion districts, draw energy from sources of magic, build obelisks, bombard the enemies by magical devices and learn new spells. You will be gathering specific mana that is required to defeat each of the invaders. Victories allow castle defenders to gain new abilities, build powerful artifacts, and perform magic rituals.

To defeat a monster you usually must travel to its location and spend a specific amount of mana of a required color. Each defeated monster provides you with a new spell. The tougher the defeated enemy, the better spell you will get. Castle defenders should try to be as efficient as possible. If you take too many actions to defeat your threats, the bastion will fall.

Bastion is a cooperative adventure: you either defend the city by concerted efforts or it will fall under the pressure of the attacking hordes. Bastion is a highly customizable and replayable game. There are several scenarios and difficulty settings in the rules, along with the solo mode.

 

 

TWILIGHT IMPERIUM FOURTH EDITION

 

Twilight Imperium (Fourth Edition) is a game of galactic conquest in which three to six players take on the role of one of seventeen factions vying for galactic domination through military might, political maneuvering, and economic bargaining. Every faction offers a completely different play experience, from the wormhole-hopping Ghosts of Creuss to the Emirates of Hacan, masters of trade and economics. These seventeen races are offered many paths to victory, but only one may sit upon the throne of Mecatol Rex as the new masters of the galaxy.

No two games of Twilight Imperium are ever identical. At the start of each galactic age, the game a board is uniquely and strategically constructed using 51 galaxy tiles that feature everything from lush new planets and supernovas to asteroid fields and gravity rifts. Players are dealt a hand of these tiles and take turns creating the galaxy around Mecatol Rex, the capital planet seated in the center of the board. An ion storm may block your race from progressing through the galaxy while a fortuitously placed gravity rift may protect you from your closest foes. The galaxy is yours to both craft and dominate.

A round of Twilight Imperium begins with players selecting one of eight strategy cards that both determine player order and give their owner a unique strategic action for that round. These may do anything from providing additional command tokens to allowing a player to control trade throughout the galaxy. After these roles are selected, players take turns moving their fleets from system to system, claiming new planets for their empire, and engaging in warfare and trade with other factions. At the end of a turn, players gather in a grand council to pass new laws and agendas, shaking up the game in unpredictable ways.

After every player has passed their turn, players move up the victory track by checking to see whether they have completed any objectives throughout the turn and scoring them. Objectives are determined by setting up ten public objective cards at the start of each game, then gradually revealing them with every round. Every player also chooses between two random secret objectives at the start of the game, providing victory points achievable only by the holder of that objective. These objectives can be anything from researching new technologies to taking your neighbor’s home system. At the end of every turn, a player can claim one public objective and one secret objective. As play continues, more of these objectives are revealed and more secret objectives are dealt out, giving players dynamically changing goals throughout the game. Play continues until a player reaches ten victory points.

 

 

RICHARD THE LIONHEART

 

The Crusades have summoned Richard the Lionheart to the Middle East. Back home in England, John Lackland is trying to consolidate his power, recruiting the Sheriff of Nottingham to his side. Opposing them is Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men. What will be left of Richard’s Kingdom when the Crusades are over?

In Richard the Lionheart, players ally themselves either with Robin Hood or John Lackland. They travel across England, trying to earn prestige points and influence the Crusades from afar. At the end of the game, Richard will return to what’s left of his kingdom…if he returns at all. At this time, the player who has earned the most prestige wins.

    JOKING HAZARD!

    The creators said:

    "Someone on the Internet once told us that making stick figure comics is easy as hell, and that we were ugly and stupid.

    They were right on all counts. So, after crying for a few hours, we created the Random Comic Generator which since its inception in 2014 has entertained millions with its computer-generated comedy.

    After a few weeks of playing with the Random Comic Generator, we started to wonder if its hundreds of random panels might lend themselves to a card game, where you compete against your friends to finish a comic with a funny punchline. So we printed out all of the RCG panels and started playing with them."

    Draw 7 cards. The deck plays the first card, select a Judge to play the second, then everyone selects a third card to create a three panel comic strip. The Judge picks a winner.

    The game includes a deck of 250 unique panel cards - that’s 15.4 million combinations of comics!

    STANDING UP TO BULLIES @ EC!!!

    The comics industry has been taking a stand this week against discrimination and bullying... and we couldn't be happier!!!

    Most of us can relate to being bullied or discriminated against in one way or another, and EC would like to remind everyone that ALL ARE WELCOME to be part of our EC Family!!!!

    Many celebrities, including Captain America's Chris Evans, The Incredible Hulk's Mark Ruffalo, Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown, and WWE's AJ Styles and more, have shown their support for Keaton Jones, whose bullying video has gone viral!!!

    We lend our support to Keaton and everyone else who has been the victim of bullying and abuse from others. We hope our entire EC Family will encourage others to be a superhero and not a super-villain to those who are different!!!

    You can share your thoughts of support at #StandWithKeaton!!!

    The LGBTQ community has also been getting some support via DC Comics and the The CW network! The Ray, a popular character from the DC's Legends of Tomorrow, now has his own animated video series on the CW Seed online. They have partnered with The Trevor Project to provide immediate help to those who are overwhelmed by bullying and discrimination, and we applaud them for being a friend to those who truly need it!!!

    Check out the video below!

    We hope that everyone has a fantastic week ahead, and we're glad to have all of you in our EC Family!!!

    BATTLE FOR ROKUGAN

    Conquer the realm and bring honor to your clan in Battle for Rokugan! This turn-based strategy game of conquest and mayhem puts players in the role of Rokugan daimyo struggling for control over the rich land of the Emerald Empire. Leaders must balance their resources, plan their attacks, and outwit their enemies to ensure their clan's victory. The land is there for the taking. The most honorable daimyo will win the day!

    EXIT: THE FORBIDDEN CASTER, THE FORGOTTEN ISLAND, AND THE POLAR SYSTEM

    In The Polar Station, “An alarm sounded in the eternal ice, so the polar station has been evacuated and foreclosed, but a small group of researchers has remained behind by mistake — and they have only one hour to find the code that will crack the lock program.”

    In The Forbidden Castle, “The castle is the highlight of the hike, but hardly have the hikers entered the old walls, when the squeaky doors close. Escape appears impossible — but strange hints may lead players in a new direction. Can they solve the riddles and find the way to freedom?”

    And on The Forgotten Island, “For those shipwrecked on the beach of this forgotten island, a chained boat is the only hope — but the mysterious owner has left puzzles over the whole island. Will the team solve them, free the boat, and escape?”

    QUEENDOMINO

    Build up the most prestigious kingdom by claiming wheat fields, forests, lakes, grazing grounds, marshes, and mountains. Your knights will bring you riches in the form of coins — and if you make sure to expand the towns on your lands, you will make new buildings appear, giving you opportunities for new strategies. You may win the Queen's favors ... but always be aware of the dragon!

    Queendomino is a game completely independent from Kingdomino, while offering a choice of more complex challenges. Two to four players can play Queendomino independently, but also in connection with Kingdomino, allowing for games with 7x7 grids for four players, or for up to six players if you stick to 5x5 grids.

    DICE STARS

    In Dice Stars, the dice are shooting stars that never look the same! You can choose to end the game quickly or take your time, but all your choices will be crucial to multiplying your points and reaching an incredible total! You may need to risk it all if you want to succeed...

    In more detail, Dice Stars is a short dice game in which you have to make the best decision to score the maximum of points. On your turn, you add a certain number of dice to a dice pool, then take either all dice of the same color or all dice of the same value. These actions let you score points in different ways.

    ALIEN ARTIFACTS

    Alien Artifacts is a 4X-style card game in which you play as an interplanetary faction, sending your research vessels into uncharted space to expand your knowledge and power. Build powerful ships, develop new technologies, and explore distant planets for anything — or anyone — you can exploit.

    Alien Artifacts is built on a Resource engine - each turn you will have 3 Resource cards in your hand and you will decide how best to spend them. Each resource card has two different resource types for you to use. You can only use one side and only two cards per turn! Using these resources, you will build Ships, develop Technology, discover Planets, or Trade for currency!

    New Ships allow you to attack the aliens and gain their valuable artifacts which provide huge bonuses.
    With each new Technology card in your Empire, you will have access to more actions, bonuses, and scoring opportunities.
    Each Planet you explore provides valuable resources for future actions.

    There are two sides to each of these cards, and as you build them you will decide:
    Logistics - play cards on this side to gain ongoing bonuses that will make your Empire stronger and help you build faster.
    Operational - play this side to gain a new way to score victory points (and yes, you will be able to activate your operations more than once, if you play well).

    Manage your Resources, build the right cards, make wise choices. Win!

    Alien Artifacts provides a true 4X experience in under an hour. With over two hundred cards, Alien Artifacts offers players many scoring strategies and great replay-ability.

    The featured game for this session is...

    THE RESISTANCE!

    The Empire must fall. Our mission must succeed. By destroying their key bases, we will shatter Imperial strength and liberate our people. Yet spies have infiltrated our ranks, ready for sabotage. We must unmask them. In five nights we reshape destiny or die trying. We are the Resistance!

    The Resistance is a party game of social deduction. It is designed for five to ten players, lasts about 30 minutes, and has no player elimination. The Resistance is inspired by Mafia/Werewolf, yet it is unique in its core mechanics, which increase the resources for informed decisions, intensify player interaction, and eliminate player elimination.

    Players are either Resistance Operatives or Imperial Spies. For three to five rounds, they must depend on each other to carry out missions against the Empire. At the same time, they must try to deduce the other players’ identities and gain their trust. Each round begins with discussion. When ready, the Leader entrusts sets of Plans to a certain number of players (possibly including himself/herself). Everyone votes on whether or not to approve the assignment. Once an assignment passes, the chosen players secretly decide to Support or Sabotage the mission. Based on the results, the mission succeeds (Resistance win) or fails (Empire win). When a team wins three missions, they have won the game.

    A high-speed, high-energy, trackless racing game with light push your luck, area denial, and strategy elements. Ride the LAZER!

    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...

    LAZER RYDERZ!

    Lazer Ryderz is a trackless racing game for up to 4 players with light push-your-luck, area denial, and strategy elements. Players construct their lazer paths with various pre-formed punchboard pieces that are placed according to speed and desired direction.

    In Lazer Ryderz, players take on the role of one of four Ryderz as they race to capture all three Prisms needed to charge the Portal to their next destination. The Portal only allows one Ryder to pass through before moving on to a new location in the galaxy, so speed is essential to meet your goal. But the faster a Ryder goes the harder it is to turn, and if a Ryder runs into another player's lazer, that Ryder is toast! Who will continue on their quest and who will be left behind?

    Will it be the Galactic Waveryder - the adrenaline-fueled surfer who's seeking the next great thrill and most radical solar waves? Or the Lazer Shark - always on the hunt for her next prey as she seeks the fabled Blood Nebula to restart her species? Perhaps the Super Sheriff - greatest of the Law Star Rangers who travels to the outer reaches of the known (and unknown) galaxy to bring the universe's criminals to speedy justice? Or will it be the Phantom Cosmonaut - the ghost from a long-distant era whose true quest is a mystery to those he encounters, but with speed that is without question as he moves in the blink of an eye?

    FALLOUT: THE BOARD GAME

    Fallout is a post-nuclear adventure board game for one to four players. Based on the hit video game series by Bethesda Softworks, each Fallout scenario is inspired by a familiar story from the franchise. Survivors begin the game on the edge of an unexplored landscape, uncertain of what awaits them in this unfamiliar world. With just one objective to guide them from the very beginning, each player must explore the hidden map, fight ferocious enemies, and build the skills of their survivor as they attempt to complete challenging quests and balance feuding factions within the game.

    As they advance their survivors' stories, players come across new quests and individual targets, leading them to gain influence. Who comes out ahead depends on how keenly and aggressively each player ventures through the game; however, if a single faction is pushed to power too quickly, the wasteland will be taken for their own, and the survivors conquered along with it.

    GENESYS RPG

    Blast hordes of reanimated skeletons with holy fire, explore new worlds in a steam-powered zeppelin, match wits with an alien warlord, or invent your own entirely unique world. Unlimited adventure awaits you in a roleplaying system limited only by your imagination with Genesys, a roleplaying game featuring the narrative dice system!

    Genesys is a role playing system designed for flexibility and adaptability, specifically tooled to work with any setting imaginable. The Genesys Core Rulebook not only contains an overview of the rules and how the innovative narrative dice system works, but everything a GM and players need to run adventures in five completely different settings. Everything from equipment to adversaries, character abilities to an overview of narrative tropes, all is provided in the core rulebook for Genesys. With a system so adaptable and expansive you can explore every popular roleplaying genre, from classic fantasy style campaigns, to modern day detective thrillers, and even to a far off sci-fi future, Genesys doesn’t fit into any one genre of roleplaying, and instead invites players to craft their own stories with unparalleled freedom.

    LAST FRIDAY: RETURN TO CAMP APACHE

    Ten years after the tragic Camp Apache massacre narrated in Last Friday, in the nearby village of Spring Forest, an ancient evil is waking up again. Something that the people of the village tried to forget for years, a demon who can enter people's dreams and twist them into horrible nightmares…

    After the unexpected deaths of their friends, a group of young men and women realize that they must try to stop this demon. They need the help of someone who truly understand what they are facing — the Marshall, who long ago was the "Predestined" who defeated Camp Apache's maniac. But the Marshall disappeared, and they must get to Camp Apache to find him.

    Soon, the boys and girls will find themselves trapped in a new nightmare, with two supernatural, homicidal entities to fight. Will the maniac stop the demon, or will they work together to slaughter their mortal enemies? Will the Marshall be able to stop the horror again? It's time to go back to Camp Apache!

    With the Last Friday: Return to Camp Apache expansion, you can play Last Friday with up to seven players, with two of those players controlling the evil demon and maniac. The box includes two new chapters, a new opponent (the demon), new clue tokens, new board overlays to represent a raging fire in the camp, new equipment, five new characters, and two new special characters: the Marshall and the Witch.

    The original Last Friday chapters may also be played with the new contents, as well as with the new "Survival Horror" game mode, with real-time constraints to make the game even more exciting.

    GAME OF THRONES CATAN: BROTHERHOOD OF THE WATCH

    The Brothers of the Night's Watch seek a new leader from among their ranks. Jeor Mormont wishes to promote one who can improve the infrastructure of the Gift, the bountiful and undeveloped area south of the Wall bestowed to the Watch by the Starks thousands of years ago. Drawing sustenance from the unforgiving landscape of the north offers enough challenges, but whomever takes up this task must also man and defend the Wall against the onslaught of Wildlings fighting their way into Westeros. Many brothers now compete to build, defend, and do what they can to protect Westeros, but only one shall rise above their brothers to become the new Lord Commander. But be wary — the north holds many dangers, and winter is coming.

    A Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch is based on the classic Settlers of Catan base game. In this game, each area in the Gift supplies one of five resources: lumber, brick, wool, grain, and ore. The barren Ice Fields, however, produce nothing. Players take on the role of Brothers of the Night's Watch and use these resources to strengthen their hold on the north by building roads, settlements, and keeps; recruiting guards for their patrol; or buying development cards. Each of these acts bring players increased power and recognition through the awarding of victory points. The objective will be familiar to players of the original Catan; the first player to achieve ten victory points wins the game and becomes the new Lord Commander of the Night's Watch.

    But this is not as easy as it sounds as the area surrounding the Gift can be treacherous. Wildings from north of the Wall have crossed over and follow their own rules of honor, which often conflict with the laws of Westeros. One of their ranks, Tormund Giantsbane, does not respect the Watch's claim to the land as he moves throughout the Gift, robbing resources from the Brothers sent to provide for their Order. While Tormund runs amok south of the Wall, Wildling forces gather in the Frostfangs, awaiting an opportune moment of weakness to breach the Watch's defenses and spread throughout the fruitful lands of Westeros. In addition to building within the Gift, players must strategically balance their resources to defend the Realm from Wildling raiders.

    Each player may recruit up to seven brothers from the prisons of Westeros to don their specific color and man their section of the Wall. When the Wildings attack, each player must use their guards to fend off the onslaught. If there are more guards than Wildings, the Wall stands. If there are not, the Wildings invade the Gift and pillage the settlements and keeps therein. Yet loyalty only goes so far — guards are useless defending the Wall from Climbers who slip past them, and if they encounter a Giant, at least one guard is bound to desert his post.

    Each player also has a hero to aide in their toil, based on the order of play. The first player will utilize the talents of the Lord Commander himself, Jeor Mormont, while the second player will enjoy the company of Samwell Tarly, the third will work with Bowen Marsh, and the fourth will employ the services of Master Builder Othell Yarwyck. Each hero offers a unique ability to each player which they can use up to twice during the game. Once a hero's ability has been used, players have a choice to keep that hero or choose another of the eleven heroes to aide them. Players should factor the heroes' abilities into their strategy to quickly earn victory points and gain renown within the Watch.

    The Wildling invasion marks the truest test of the Brothers of the Watch and your own competency as a commander. A failure at the Wall has a devastating impact on the Gift, even if it does not destroy the players. A Game of Throne Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch has two forms of victory, though one may feel hollower than the other. Victory occurs when a player has both improved the infrastructure of the Gift and successfully kept it safe from invaders. This is shown when a player has achieved ten victory points by any combination of building keeps, roads, and settlements; hiring three or more guards to keep the Wall safe; and buying development cards to increase their prestige, all while safeguarding the Gift.

    However, if the Wildlings breach the wall three times throughout the game, an alternate victory takes place. If this occurs, the game ends immediately as the Brotherhood of the Night's Watch can no longer delay their decision. The player commanding the most guards holding their posts on the Wall gains the title of Lord Commander and wins the game.
