About Henchman, the Game

 

Sword & Sorcery meets The Office in this fast-paced card game about backstabbing and sucking up to an Evil Overlord!

Working for an Evil Overlord is never the safest of jobs, nor the most prestigious, and certainly not the most lucrative, but there’s still a certain amount of pride in doing so. That’s especially true when the Overlord’s fiendish plan for world domination finally comes to fruition. At that point, the best place to be is at the Overlord’s side as their right-hand man, woman, or ogre. This lofty position over all other Minions is the single goal, the end-point, the focus of every Minion to become the one and only HENCHMAN.

MACE West 2019: Hull Breach Card Game

MACE West 2019 will once again host a full weekend of Hull Breach card game events.  Please feel free to join Todd and Lynn in the gaming rooms for 1 to 2 hour long demos of this unique and exciting card game, as well as soon to be announced special events.  Click OGRe for our Game Schedule

 

Proud to be considered a Cornerstone Game for MACE, Hull Breach is back again at MACE West! We’ll be runing demos all weekend plus Scenario games and Operative Challenges!


About Hull Breach

Hull Breach is a sci-fi cards-and-dice game featuring epic space combat between ships, firefights between Marine boarding parties, and plenty of clever tactics and galaxy-shaking events. You command of a space station belonging to one of our several in-game factions and fight it out with one or more other Commanders to achieve galactic domination! The object of the game is to protect your Station – your home in space – from other Commanders while trying to capture or destroy theirs.  Be warned – they’re trying to do the same thing to you. It’s a tough galaxy and at the end of the day only one Commander gets to remain standing.

Best of all, while we encourage customization and deck-building, this isn’t one of those “collectible”  card games that will have you tearing through randomized foil packs of cards to find the ones you want. Hull Breach plays right out of the box and you’ll know where you can find every card in the game without having to drop a ton of space-cash on boosters or turn to the secondary market to field a competitive deck.

MACE West 2019 Special Guest: Tonya Woldridge

MACE West 2019 Gaming is proud to welcome Paizo’s Organized Play Coordinator, Tonya Woldridge, to MACE West 2019!

Tonya Woldridge is the Organized Play Manager for Paizo, Inc., overseeing the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild, the Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild, and Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild organized play programs. Working at Paizo meant returning to her roots, as she grew up a few hours away in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and spent 2 years at the nearby University of Puget Sound. “I love the rain, mist, and mountains! If you want a beautiful vacation destination, the Olympic Peninsula is the best.”

A long-time gamer, she started playing RPGs in high school. Over the years, some of her most frequent games played were 2nd Edition AD&D, Earthdawn, Champions, Shadowrun, and D&D 3.0/3.5. She started Pathfinder with the launch of the beta and has stuck with it ever since.  After attending the third PaizoCon UK, she was hooked on organized play and spent several years volunteering for the Pathfinder Society, first as a Venture-Lieutenant in the United Kingdom, then as a Venture-Captain in Canada, before joining the team at Paizo.

Tonya counts herself fortunate that her family enjoys gaming! Her husband, a Master Sergeant (retired) in the United States Air Force, and 2 children are all avid board gamers and role-players. As a military spouse, she traveled the world with her family, spending 14 of the past 18 years living in England, Canada, and Korea. Their US posts included Washington, Texas, Arizona, Colorado and Nevada. While not fluent in foreign languages, she understands Korean, German, French, and several varieties of English.

Outside of work, Tonya enjoys reading books across a variety of genres, with fantasy and history topping the list.  She counts Anne McCaffrey, Sharon Shinn, George R. R. Martin, David Gross, Anya Seton, Antonia Fraser, Alison Weir, and Diana Gabaldon among her favorite authors. She also enjoys researching historical methods of crafting, sewing, brewing, dancing, singing, and cooking, participating in the Society for Creative Anachronism for over 20 years. A love of all things medieval and a fascination with Korean culture and food led to her earning Bachelor of Science degrees in History and Asian Studies from the University of Maryland.

Pay close attention to our MACE West 2019 Pathfinder Society schedule for special events in honor of her attendance.
