I Drank What?: Grand Championship!


In I Drank What?, it is the party of the year, and all your worst enemies have been invited. You have brought along a bottle of poison to help spice the evening up. Funny, so did all the other guests. With all the witty banter and bumbling of the staff, you have lost track of which glasses of wine were poisoned.

The only thing certain is that someone is going to die, and the survivors will have a good laugh. It’s all in good fun, so long as you have the last one. So propose a toast, and drink as if there were no tomorrow, because, for you, tomorrow may never come.

I Drank What? is the fast and furiously funny card game of poison toasts and split-second treachery. It’s a wine tasting to die for…

Game Play
Each player has a card representing a glass of wine, face down in front of them; one of these glasses is poisoned. Eventually, everyone will have to take a drink, and someone will die. The last person left alive in the party wins.

MACE 2018 Special Guest GM: Andrew Wallace & It Came From Somewhere Else!

JustUs Productions is proud to welcome Andrew Wallace, writer of  It Came From Somewhere Else! He will be running his unique games for us every day at the convention.   This game is available on DriveThruRPG here. We encourage you to check it out.

About It Came From Somewhere Else!

We all know the story: a small group of friends take a weekend vacation to a secluded location, where they get drunk, have fun, and screw. Then, a monster appears! It picks them off one by one until finally one of two things happens: the movie ends with a lone survivor standing over the body of the monster, or the monster reigns triumphant to kill again another day.

This is B-movie heaven, where sometimes the living envy the dead. And now you get to be one of those hapless characters fighting to survive.

About HERO Card Game

HERO CARD GAME

An Expandable Card Game (ECG)

H.E.R.O. is an Expandable Card Game, meaning that the initial game contains the full game at purchase. H.E.R.O. comes with two enhancement decks, 21 recruitable heroes, and 24 abilities to draft from when building your personal enhancement deck.​H.E.R.O. is a game for all levels of gamers ages 10+. H.E.R.O is simple to learn, at 1 page of instructions, but requires much deeper thinking to master.

Know yourself; know your opponent.

H.E.R.O. has been likened to many other games including Naruto, MTG, Smash-Up, Yu-Gi-Oh, etc.

​While baring similarities to each, the mechanics are a unique combination of drafting, recruitable heroes, recovery of fatigued/injured heroes, building a strong hand of cards, simple stat boosting, heroes that learn new abilities, various phase options for every turn, direct attacks, combined attacks, and of course–ability combinations.

About Dragon Ball Z RPG

Dragon Ball 3212 RPG is a home brew role playing game based on the Dragon Ball anime series, written by Brian Simpson.

Dragon Ball Dimension 3212, though taking place in the same universe as the normal story of Dragon Ball Z which you may or may not be familiar with, 3212 brings us a different and most unexpected group of people.

The is a story about an unruly and unlikely group of characters whose lives have ended up intertwined due to several different reasons have found themselves working together for either mutual gain, or perhaps for other hidden reasons which may or may not have been unraveled yet. The people who we speak about may not be heroes, they may not be villains, and they may be nothing more than a small glimmer of light in the darkness.

This is a custom game that has been in works for around 20 years now. Beginners and experts alike are able to play with ease in a fun and entertaining environment. The game has an in-depth, but yet simple system with the ability for fans to the series and even newcomers to the series to enjoy what it’s like to be a part of the Dragon Ball Universe.

One Night at Rikter’s Cemetery

Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition

WHEN: 9 PM Friday November 9

WHERE: Executive Board Room

Old Man Rikter is dead. For years, he’s fiercely guarded the town’s small cemetery as if it contained a dragon’s hoard of gold. Every towns-person has a different rumor about the ill-tempered caretaker’s secret, but no one has been willing to investigate the small plot of land just outside of town. Rikter hasn’t been buried more than a few weeks, and now strange sounds and lights are being reported by merchants and adventurers traveling by the cemetery late in the evening. The townsfolk have spread the word that they are willing to handsomely reward any adventurers who can investigate and explain the strange disturbances.

MACE 2018 Featured Event: Flea Market & Swap Meet

MACE 2018 will host another Flea Market & Swap Meet.  This is a very casual aspect of our convention and we leave a lot up to you and your judgement.

Sell or Trade your old gaming stuff. MACE is providing a chance for you not sell your old games and accessories like a yard sale. This is not for vendors to sell current games, or game stores to sell their old stock.  This is for regular folks to sell their old out-of-print gaming stuff. You set up your own schedule. We will just set up tables. All sales are final. No retail sales allowed here. Negotiating and bargaining are encouraged.

We are going to set up tables in the hallway outside the elevators. 2 or 3 depending on space. We are going to try and keep it as simple as possible. We did not want to make it any more complicated than it needs to be. Basically these tables are available for you to sell any old, used and/or out of print games and fandom merchandise. This is not a place for new or unopened product or a place for vendors. You can set your own schedule for when you want to sell. If there are not tables available, try again some other time. I would not recommend waiting to the last day because (1) people will have less money by then, (2) I think a lot of people are going to wait last minute.

Contact us if you have any questions.
