NEW DAWN GAME DEMONSTRATION
Saturday, November 28th from noon to 5pm

Double Exposure, Inc. Envoy and Emerald City presents a New Dawn Demonstration!

Herald Bill Eastman will be with us once again to demonstrate, New Dawn, a thematic sequel of Among the Stars and part of the Among the Stars Universe series.

Here is some information on New Dawn:

Twenty years after the Alliance was formed, the cost of constructing new space stations is becoming unbearable. In order to improve the economy, the Alliance has decided to rebuild and recolonize some of the planets and space facilities who were abandoned during the war. By activating them once more, the Alliance is hoping to acquire the much needed funds and resources.

Players take the role of Alliance officials. Their assignment is to explore and revive a galactic sector. By developing various technologies and dispatching ambassadors, each player has the chance to visit abandoned planets, military facilities and space stations and establish bases to maintain control. Competition is fierce, and each mistake in maintaining control can cost dearly…

Bill will be teaching new players how to play the game and to show off to the public all the fantastic components that make up this excellent game!

As leaders of one of the country’s influential noble families, players vie with each other to establish their provincial city as the best home for Rolldovia’s new capital.

WrathofDragons
WRATH OF DRAGONS
Long ago, monstrous beasts ravaged the lands of the Old World. These fearsome, winged creatures wreaked havoc, leaving death and destruction in their wake as they established their dominance. Their attacks were quick and calculated – with every strike, horrific tales of devastation and woe spread throughout the lands. Civilization dreaded the Wrath of Dragons! Tales became legends… legends became myths… and myths, over time, have been forgotten. But, which dragon was feared above all others? Which dragon’s legend would stand the test of time? Take on the mantle of a powerful dragon and immolate and hoard in Wrath of Dragons! Awaken each century, terrifying and rapacious! Lay waste to settlements and cities, capture nobles, amass treasure, burn crops, consume flocks, and pass into legend as the greatest dragon of any age!

 

Terra
TERRA
How long is the Golden Gate Bridge? Where has “evidence” of the Yeti been found? How many sculptures are on Easter Island? It’s likely that you don’t know any of these facts. But you might have a rough idea, and that’s good enough, because Terra is the party game where being close counts. And, if you have absolutely no idea what the answer is, take advantage of your friends who do know!

 

Melee
MELEE
The King has died childless and the land has had its last days of peace and prosperity. Now the power hungry nobles each see their opportunity to seize the throne and launch a war without mercy to assert their own rights. Only force of arms, and the gold to pay for it, matters. Who shall succeed to grab the throne in the chaos that ensues? Melee is a nasty, brutish, and fast-paced war game of domination and attrition.

 

504
504
In a distant future, scientists were able to build small alternate Earths. Exactly 504 such Earths have thus far been built. The scientists programmed each of these Worlds with an individual set of laws and rules which the residents strictly follow and consider most important for their lives. These may be exploration, consumption, economics, military, etc., and each is unique. You can visit all of these 504 alternate Earths to experience how the people are living, and decide which of these worlds harbors the best civilization. On which World do you want to live? Explore them all and decide!
