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.
Ray Franks of Comic Monstore will be demoing his game Hunt Master at MACE 2021 on Saturday (maybe more of he can arrange it). Join him for short demos of a thrilling card game of monster hunting. See OGRe for his specific schedule, click on Event Schedule. You must be registered for MACE 2021 to participate.
Hunt Master Card Game
Hunt Master is a card game that plays like a board game. Players move pawns between locations as they hunt for monsters hiding within decks beside each location. The first player to find all five of their monsters wins. Monster Cards are hiding amongst Action Cards that keep the game moving. Monster abilities can give you advantages or trip up your opponents.
MACE 2021 will once again host several brilliant game designers and publishers attending for the sole purpose of demoing and play testing their unpublished games. We feel very privileged and honored that these fine designers would use MACE as a testing ground for their ideas.
An unpublished game with that as a working title. Demoing it to the owner of Twilight Creations on 9/10. If she picks it up, I want to start building some interest in it for a likely upcoming kickstarter
An unpublished game that I want to start building some interest. Will be a pseudo-educational game, that I plan to pitch to Genius Games, maybe as early as 10/1 (depends how much time Zombie Frenzy takes!)
An unpublished game set in a D&D 5E universe, where players defend the town of Strongholme from a Goblin Invasion. Planning to pitch to Mr. B as soon as the Table Top Simulator assets are finished
Twice Alive Games
Check OGRe often for updates. More UNPUB games are expected to be added. You must be register for MACE 2021 to participate.

The zombie apocalypse is upon us! The infection is spreading, and you must stop it… unless, that is, your cynicism, darkness, denial, or overwhelming hunger for fresh brains has overshadowed your will to save humanity.
Who can you trust in this game of deception and shifting allegiances? Even those who are silent may be lying to your face. You must summon all your intelligence and intuition to identify friend from foe and turn your enemies against each other to survive. You must fight for survival as you are plunged into the war between Zombies, Survivors, and Maniacs, taking on the roles of up to 14 unique characters with special abilities and innumerable combinations. Only your cunning and quick thinking can lead you to victory.
You’ve only got to make it through the night—do you have the brains to get the job done?
MACE 2021 is proud to welcome Mountaineer Games to our community.

These demos will take place in the dealers room. They will also be selling these games.
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.
