MACE West 2020: Official GM Call!

MACE West 2020
February 28 – March 1, 2019
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Asheville – Biltmore
Asheville, NC

THIS IS THE OFFICIAL GM CALL FOR MACE WEST 2020!!

Many of our regular events are returning. If that has changed, I hope those responsible for coordinating those get to me as soon as possible. For Pathfinder Society (PFS) GMs, work with Mike Tracey.  We’ll be working to find a D&D AL coordinator.  Both will be present at MACE West this year.  IN fact, the PFS/SFS schedule is already on the schedule!!

For those that wish to propose scheduled events for MACE West – RPGs, board games, cards games and the like – the best way to do that is through OGRe.  Go to ogre.justusproductions.com. Log in (Make an account if you don’t have one. If you were a GM for us at any point in time since 2006, you more than likely have an account.). Click Propose Event on the left menu.  Three 4-hour sessions or 12 hours of gaming gets you in free, with fewer getting you a discount. See our discount policy on our web site at justusproductions.com for information on the discounts.

Please note that until Jan 25, the instance of OGRe defaults to mini-mace.  You will have to change the con in the proposal to MACE West for the proposal to be associated to the correct event!

If you prefer to email me, please include as much information about your event as possible. It is sort of a hassle to go back and forth with questions with so many GMs. Include game name and any link that will explain the game and/or provide the description, especially if it is a obscure game. Also include schedule preferences keeping in mind our standard 4 hr slot schedule (although you are not limited to that schedule).

Contact if you have any business or money questions, or vendor room questions. Anything gaming schedule or room layout related, ask me. Thanks again for all you have done in the past and I hope we can work together again.

Running Emberbright, the official MACE living campaign

If you would like to get involved in running the official MACE living campaign, Emberbright, please let me know.  Matt Holmquist is the lead writer behind this fantasy setting, created in contest a few years back.  You can contact to get a full rundown on the setting, but in general it is a dark fantasy with some steampunk elements as well as post-apocalypse elements.  It can be run in Pathfinder, D&D 5e and with a little work, Savage Worlds.  He has adventures and characters.

We are also seeking anyone willing to run Adventures in Filbar.  See information on that here.

mini-mace 2020: Clarion Game Studios Demos

mini-mace 2020 will once again host a full weekend of Hull Breach and Henchmen! card games by Clarion Game Studios.  Please join Todd and Lynn in the gaming rooms for 1 to 2 hour long demos of this unique and exciting card game.


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.

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.

We are accepting RPGs, board games, card games and anything else with a relatively small to medium sized foot-print.  Space for large miniature games is not available.

If you prefer to email me, please include as much information about your event as possible.  It is sort of a hassle to go back and forth with questions with so many GMs.  Include game name and any link that will explain the game and/or provide the description, especially if it is a obscure game.  Also include schedule preferences keeping in mind our standard 4 hr slot schedule (although you are not limited to that schedule).

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.
