CLUB MACE 2021 UPDATE

I am later than I wanted to be in getting this info out, but those of you who know me would expect no less.

For CLUB MACE, here are links to the 2 places we are exploring at the moment. I am working on pricing that includes 3 excursions and 1 special dinner. The idea currently is for a 7-8 day event. For now, you can look at the spots we have in mind. Depending on the number of people who want to go, one or both of these choices may not work. But this will give you a good idea of the direction I am going and what I would like to do. The excursions include, The Blarney Castle, The Cliffs of Moher and a visit to a distillery. Here are the links for the lodgings.

Ballybur is in the Republic of Ireland with room for 24 and Lisheen is in the Republic of Ireland room for 14.

Soon, I will be asking for a $50 deposit per person to get some final estimates of interest. Once I have an idea of who will be going, we can start working on costs, travel, etc. Based on the 2 locations, the price with Lodging and excursions (no air travel or food included at this point) we are estimating between $1200 and $1800 per person.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for your interest and patience. I will have more information on location and prices soon.

MACE 2019 Featured Tabletop Game: Berd

MACE 2019 is proud to welcome Michael Mikaelian and his game Berd.  He will be demoing his game most of the weekend as open demos in the Gallery.

 

About Berd

The “Berd” is an ancient word that stands for a fortress or prison. The goal of the game is to collect the most tokens of any color by the end of the game. Playing pieces in the Berd game have ability to attach/detach to each other. That allows players to move a stack of tokens like a single unit and split the structure when needed. Using interlocking blocks players can create towers and a certain type of tower – Berd has unique properties that make this game special.

The design of the game is specially made simple underlying an easy and logical concept of the game. However the Berd is a serious game and players have to think strategically to win. Also, the board without a theme allows to play many different Berd games.

The board of the Berd game has a shape of a square castle from top view. In fact the starting/finishing corner squares were designed larger for accommodating four stacks of tokens. Berd game can be played by two and more players. The game set includes two different games and over six game variations for each game. Berd game can be setup in few seconds. Duration of any option of the Berd game depends on how many tokens are played. So players can set up a rapid game of 10 minutes or a long game of 90 minutes. The Berd game for two players may last less than 5 minutes. Berd game can be adjusted for luck and strategy. By employing more tokens in the game it becomes heavier in strategy.

Berd game perfectly fits for tournaments because players can accumulate tokens (or points) in series of games with different players. The interlocking blocks in the “Berd” game are made of high quality ABS plastic with thick walls, so they can last forever without wearing and breaking. The Berd game is ideal for educating children, especially when using value assigned tokens. The game can also help developing strategic thinking.
