Bloodborne


Bloodborne: The Card Game is based on the Chalice Dungeons in the video game Bloodborne — the ever-changing labyrinths and tombs carved out by the Great Ones beneath the fallen city of Yharnam, where horrifying creatures reside. Players compete to kill monsters and take their blood.

In general, Bloodborne is a game about risk management with a bit of group think, inventory management/upgrades, and tactical play. You start with a hand of basic weapons, which you get to upgrade to improve your fighting combos and capabilities.

Each turn, one monster chosen at random attacks players, who fight back as a team, with everyone playing a card from their hand simultaneously to attempt to kill the monster. Players collect blood from the monster, assuming it dies, based on how much damage they dealt. Monsters can fight back with exploding dice that can potentially deal infinite damage.

Players can fight as long as they want, but if they die in combat, they lose their progress. Players can opt out of fighting to bank their blood and save it permanently. Collected blood counts as victory points.

Says designer Eric M. Lang, “My goal with Bloodborne was to channel the intensity and frustration of the video game into a contest between players. Lots of death.”

Play the Star Wars Role-Playing Game!

PLAY THE STAR WARS ROLE-PLAYING GAME!!!
Sundays from noon to 3pm in the Events Room

If you are age 15 or older, come step into the Star Wars universe at EC!

Enjoy thrilling adventures in the Star Wars universe with the three different Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars roleplaying systems — Age of Rebellion, Edge of the Empire, and Force and Destiny. All three systems utilize the same dice and core mechanics.

Game Master John will teach you to make a character, and then take those characters on an adventure in the Star Wars universe! First-time player? No worries! All of the game mechanics will be explained as you enjoy the adventure!

Take on the sinister Galactic Empire as a member of the Rebel Alliance. Wage guerilla warfare across the Star Wars galaxy as a solider, or provide crucial intelligence to the Rebels as a cunning spy. Face down legions of stormtroopers, steal secret plans and restricted codes, and stay on target in the fight against the ultimate power in the universe. No matter what role in the Rebellion you take, the fate of the galaxy rests in your hands.

Participate in grim and gritty adventures in places where morality is gray and nothing is certain. Ply your trade as a smuggler in the Outer Rim, collect bounties on the scum that live in the shadows of Coruscant, or try to establish a new colony on a planet beneath the Empire’s notice…

As a Force-sensitive outcast struggling to survive under Imperial rule, you can bring justice to the galaxy, search for the lost remnants of the Jedi order, or fall victim to the dark side’s temptations. Whether you choose the light side or the dark, a powerful destiny awaits you!

PLEASE NOTE: The first session will be open to the first 9 players to create characters. With one game master to run the adventure, future sessions will be open to the first 6 players to arrive. If another participant can and wishes to run a game as game master, that will open the sessions to another 4 to 6 players at each new table.

EC GAME NIGHT: TAKENOKO!
Wednesday, March 29th 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…

TAKENOKO

A long time ago at the Japanese Imperial court, the Chinese Emperor offered a giant panda bear as a symbol of peace to the Japanese Emperor. Since then, the Japanese Emperor has entrusted his court members (the players) with the difficult task of caring for the animal by tending to his bamboo garden.

In Takenoko, the players will cultivate land plots, irrigate them, and grow one of the three species of bamboo (Green, Yellow, and Pink) with the help of the Imperial gardener to maintain this bamboo garden. They will have to bear with the immoderate hunger of this sacred animal for the juicy and tender bamboo. The player who manages his land plots best, growing the most bamboo while feeding the delicate appetite of the panda, will win the game.

ECBC Comics 101: Hawkeye — My Life As a Weapon!

Posted in Books & New Comics!, Events & Announcements! | Comments closed

New Games! 3/17/2017

Anansi and the Box of Stories

A story, a story; let it come, let it go. Once, all the stories belonged to someone else, but now they belong to Anansi, the Trickster — which is a story unto itself! Everyone knows that the best stories happen when you play someone else for the fool. But sometimes, even the best of tricks can backfire, and who plays the fool then?

In Anansi and the Box of Stories, the players take on the roles of archetypal animals in a trick-taking game in which you can use your animal cunning and abilities to turn the tricks in your favor. Each round, every player plays the card they think will win the trick. But beware, as others will turn your tricks back on you and make you a fool, taking away your points! Only a player who can skillfully win tricks without being made a fool will prove their wisdom.

 

 

Secret Hitler

Secret Hitler is a dramatic game of political intrigue and betrayal set in 1930s Germany. Each player is randomly and secretly assigned to be a liberal or a fascist, and one player is Secret Hitler. The fascists coordinate to sow distrust and install their cold-blooded leader; the liberals must find and stop the Secret Hitler before it’s too late. The liberal team always has a majority.

At the beginning of the game, players close their eyes, and the fascists reveal themselves to one another. Secret Hitler keeps his eyes closed, but puts his thumb up so the fascists can see who he is. The fascists learn who Hitler is, but Hitler doesn’t know who his fellow fascists are, and the liberals don’t know who anyone is.

Each round, players elect a President and a Chancellor who will work together to enact a law from a random deck. If the government passes a fascist law, players must try to figure out if they were betrayed or simply unlucky. Secret Hitler also features government powers that come into play as fascism advances. The fascists will use those powers to create chaos unless liberals can pull the nation back from the brink of war.

The objective of the liberal team is to pass five liberal policies or assassinate Secret Hitler. The objective of the fascist team is to pass six fascist policies or elect Secret Hitler chancellor after three fascist policies have passed.

EC Game Day: Rent a Hero and Conan is Saturday, March 25th!

EC GAME DAY: RENT A HERO AND CONAN!!!
Saturday, March 25th from noon to 2pm and 3 to 5pm

Come learn to play RENT A HERO from noon to 2pm, and the latest CONAN board game from 3 to 5pm!

The card deck in RENT A HERO consists of 77 cards, with each card representing one of seven different heroes. Players each start with two random heroes, and each hero has a special power that can be activated once. Each turn, a player sends a card from his hand face down to the next player, who can choose to take it or pass it on. If he takes it, he adds it to his group of heroes, but if it’s a hero he already has, both hero cards are sent to the discard pile. Before sending a hero away, the player must obey the current round’s limitations, such as the card must be odd or must be below or above a certain number.

The first player to collect six of the seven heroes wins.


CONAN, designed by Fred Henry and based on the Conan universe by Robert E. Howard, is a scenario-based semi-cooperative asymmetric miniatures board game. One player is the Opponent, playing the Opposition forces, and the other players (1 to 4) play Conan and his companions: Shevatas the thief, Hadrathus the Priest/Sorcerer, Belit the pirate queen, Valeria the warrior, etc. The game is based purely on Robert E. Howard’s novels and short stories (and not the movies or other non-Howardian material). The publisher hired Patrice Louinet, a Howard expert, to make sure the art and the scenarios are compatible with Howard’s vision.

Each game is a scenario, played on a map. There are several maps — Pictish Village, Underground temple, Tavern, Pirate ship, etc. — and each map can have several scenarios set on it. The game is fast, one hour approximately. It’s possible to play several scenarios in a campaign, but you can also play each scenario individually. There are a dozen playable scenarios in the base box.

    HAPPY NATIONAL SUPERHERO DAY FROM EC!!!

    Today is National Superhero day, and it's the perfect opportunity for us to say THANK YOU to all of our EC Family Members (hey, that's YOU!) for your support of us, but also for all the super-heroic things you do on a daily basis that impact those around you for the greater good!!!

    It's also a chance for us to say THANK YOU to our other real-life superheroes, such as our police, military, fire officers, teachers, volunteers and others who sacrifice to make life better for others!!!

    And, most of all, THANK YOU to all of our amazing cosplayers who donate their time, talent, energy and money to our local fundraising groups such as TampaBay Squad FL Garrison, Gamers on The Edge, Costumers With a Cause (CWC), Suncoast Ghostbusters, 2Wheel Heroes, the MUCH Foundation, and more!!! THANK YOU for ALL you do!!!

    Here's a great example of a MUCH Foundation event covered by 10News WTSP and Dion Lim just a few months ago!!!

    MAY THE FARCE BE WITH YOU!!!

    The demented geniuses at Bad Lip Reading have done it again!!! This time, they've light-sabered Star Wars The Force Awakens, and it's nothing short of hilarious!!!

    Once you're done giggling, you can stop by and see your friends at Emerald City Comics, where we have an entire Star Wars section... that is nothing to laugh at!!! It's filled with treasures you won't find anywhere else in one place!!!

    Enjoy!!!
