bad medicine
Bad Medicine Game Demonstration!
Saturday, November 21st from 12pm to 5pm

Double Exposure, Inc. Envoy and Emerald City presents a Bad Medicine Demonstration!

Herald Bill Eastman will be with us once again to demonstrate Bad Medicine.

What is Bad Medicine??

Bad Medicine is a raucous new party game of quick thinking and hilarious storytelling, from the designer of the word game Prolix and the economic strategy game Battle Merchants.

In Bad Medicine, you and your opponents are huge pharmaceutical companies. Your goal is to create names and advertisements for new drugs to cure the current Malady, while downplaying any side effects that you’ll never know about ahead of time.

Each card in the game has a little bit of a drug name, a little bit of a description, and a side effect. There will be one card dealt in the middle of the table; its side effect is the Malady to cure this round.

You’ll formulate a drug to cure the Malady. Then you’ll pitch it to the other players. Of course, your drug will have a side effect.

If your pitch gets the most votes, then your drug’s side effect will be the Malady to cure next round!

Bill will be teaching new players how to play the game and to show off to the public this great game!

ANDRE THE GIANT GN CLOSER TO HEAVEN
IDW PUBLISHING
(W) Brandon M. Easton (A/CA) Denis Medri
Jean Ferre. Monster Eiffel Tower. Fezzik.

Despite his astonishing popularity, few really knew the man behind the curtain-the man born in the French countryside named Andre Roussimoff. Showing signs of gigantism at an early age, Andre decided to use his size to his advantage and entered the wild world of professional wrestling. From his first day in the squared circle, those close to him knew that a legend was born.
This lavishly illustrated biography of Andre the Giant charts his entire life from the earliest days on his family’s farm to his blockbuster feuds with the biggest wrestling stars of all time, exploring the dark side of fame and fortune along the way.

 

 

GIANT DAYS TP VOL 01
GIANT DAYS TP VOL 01
BOOM! STUDIOS
(W) John Allison (A/CA) Lissa Treiman
John Allison’s daily webcomic Bad Machinery and Scary Go Round are hilarious, the kind of strips where every panel makes you laugh out loud.

Giant Days is an entertaining, slice-of-life look at three friends away at university, and is a series fans of things like Scott Pilgrim will not want to miss!
What It Is: Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of handwringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery mold, nuchauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Collects issues #1-4.

    Thanks so much to everyone who came out to celebrate Marvel's Merc with a Mouth!!!20th Century Fox and Marvel's second Deadpool Movie has been a massive hit!!! So, of course, EC hosted a special (and morally questionable) day in his honor!!!

    Check out these pics from the event, but we will give a word of WARNING!!! These ARE pics form a DEADPOOL event, so some of the pics are a little more "grown up" than what you'll usually see at our events! There's definitely a PG-13 vibe here, so proceed with caution!!!

    If you still can't get enough Deadpool, stop by and see your friends at EC for the best in Deadpool books, comics, games, toys, collectibles, tchotchkes and more!!!

    Deadpool has a LOT of friends, so we got visits from Supergirl, Black Cat and more!!! Who knew such a smart-alec could be so popular?!?

    Check out these pics from the event, but we will give a word of WARNING!!! These ARE pics form a DEADPOOL event, so some of the pics are a little more "grown up" than what you'll usually see at our events! There's definitely a PG-13 vibe here, so proceed with caution!!!

    MAGIC THE GATHERING: BATTLEBOND

    Welcome to Battlebond, where competitors battle in pairs. Recruit a trusted partner and fight shoulder-to-shoulder, hand-in-hand, or back-to-back for glory and the roar of the crowd! Forge an unbreakable bond with your combat companion and claim your place in the pantheon of champions!

    UNLOCK! SERIES 3

    Unlock! Secret Adventures features three new "escape room" scenarios that you can play on your tabletop.

    Unlock! is a cooperative card game inspired by escape rooms that uses a simple system which allows you to search scenes, combine objects, and solve riddles. Play Unlock! to embark on great adventures, while seated at a table using only cards and a companion app that can provide clues, check codes, monitor time remaining, etc. The three scenarios are (according to the app):

    -"A Noside Story"
    -"Tombstone Express"
    -"The Adventurers of Oz"

    PROWLERS PASSAGE

    In the heart of the sleeping city, there lies incredible wealth. The city gates are well guarded, but no one is watching what’s under their feet. The dead of night provides just enough cover for you to tunnel your way to untold riches and plunder the city from within. But you must act quickly, because a rival thief has the same plan.

    In Prowler’s Passage, you and your rival burrow into the city through a network of underground passages to grab valuable items while attempting to gain control of key districts. Steal the best items, create the longest passages, and control districts to become the premier prowler!

    On your turn, you must (1) place a passage, then (2) collect the tile where you placed your passage, and (3) move control markers for the districts adjacent to that passage. The tile you collect will either be an item tile, which are scored in sets during each scoring phase, or a shovel tile, which allows you to move control markers further. You might also steal statues and/or complete achievements on your turn.

    MULTIUNIVERSUM

    You’re part of a team of brilliant scientists working on the super secret lab: CERN. While experimenting with teletransportation your team came across a wonderful discovery: portals to new dimensions!

    Just imagine! Once a portal is open a whole new magical dimension is suddenly very close. All you need to do is take one step forward and you're there.

    The problem is... The crazy wild creatures from those other dimensions can now walk in.

    Oh no.

    Close the portals NOW!

    Multiuniversum is a card game puzzle in which players use actions on their cards to do research, move between 5 modules of the Hadron Collider, preparing tools so they can close portals to alternative realities.

    Each player has 3 cards on hand and 3 actions to make during their turn. Using these cards players can:

    -do research (draw 2 cards)
    -prepare a tool
    -move to any machine module
    -close portal
    -use module ability

    When the player closes a portal he gets a sample from this universe (allows player to get bonus points) and knowledge points - described on card.

    Each 5 modules open 5 portals. The game ends immediately when three portals piles have run out. The scientist who got the most knowledge points receive a Nobel prize and wins the game.
