Cool Mini or Not will also be running 2 special events

Xenoshyft: The Last Base Standing

An 8 Player Mega Game of Xenoshyft Onslaught, using all the departments in the core game as well as the 2 experimental departments from the Kickstarter.

Can you as the Department Heads keep the base from being destroyed long enough for the marines of Nortec to complete their mission? All participants will receive a special Kickstarter Exclusive and another prize is available if the base survives the Xenos Onslaught!

Zombicide Tric Trac!

For up to 12 players. Can you survive the scenarios for this French Exclusive Zombicide supplement. All participants will receive the exclusive survivor for this pack

Cool Mini or Not has long enjoyed being part of MACE and returning the fun and excitement of this fantastic show. Every year Cool Mini or Not has offered a Kickstarter release of their games to be a part of the Charity Auction and this year they are doing things a little differently. The recently released Rum & Bones Pirate game of Piracy offered four full ships and crews as well as various Mercenary crews and characters during the kickstarter.  So much in fact that it represents over 20 different items and boxes. So for this year’s contribution to the Charity event we will be breaking the Rum & Bones Kickstarter into four themed lots

Lot 1

Core Game plus all expansions for the Wellsport Brotherhood and Bone Devils Crews (including KS exclusive characters and Faction Specific Dice) as well as the Kickstarter Monsters pack

Lot 2

Mazu’s Dreadful Curse expansion set and all Crew and accessory pieces including Kickstarter Exclusives

Lot 3

La Brise Sanguine Expansion with all Crew and accessory pieces including Kickstarter Exclusives

Lot 4

Hellrokkers, Luck Goddesses, Skull Kickers and more Mercenaries and Mercenary Expansions and Exclusives than you can safely fire a cannon broadside at. Including the Mercenary Tide deck so you can run a Mercenary crew as their own Faction (assuming you have captured someone else’s ship)

This would be for the 8pm saturday event up to 8 players. Xenoshyft is a co-op Base Defense Deck Builder. This event will use all the expansions from the kickstarter

The Fall of Base M15

Base M15 is an unusual place. While it perfomrs the same functions as most Nortec Bases – That of mining the local planet for Xenosathem- it serves another purpose. Two radical and frowned upon special projects are being tested and improved upon. The science of physically enhancing the human body with additional limbs or bio enhancements “Grafting” and the unlocking of the human Psychic potential “Psychogenics”

Unfortunately Base M15 has fallen prey to the same fate as more than 99% of the bases run by Nortec. The Local Fauna does not approve of their methods and the destruction of the eco system.

This is a special 8 player game using a full Kickstarter version of Xenoshyft.Players will function as all 6 standard departments available in Xenoshyft: Onslaught as well as 2 additional departments, the Psychogenic and Grafting Labs.

Can the players keep the base standing long enough for the last of the Xenosathem to be extracted?

Or will the special research b e lost as Nortec marks another base in the loss column of the ledger? Prizes will be given out to all players, these will vary depending on if the base survives and any special or unusual events during play. All prizes will be Kickstarter Exclusive items

XenoShyft is a game for 1-4 players, with each player controlling one of the Divisions of the NorTec Military: The Science Labs, Med Bay, Armory, Weapon’s Research, Barracks, and Command Center. Each of these divisions represents one part of the overall NorTec Base, and it is your job as commander of these Divisions to protect the base while its field operations are completed. You and your teammates will have to work together to survive the continuous onslaught of powerful alien threats and horrors- the goal of the mission is not to wipe out these threats, it is merely to outlast them! Survive through nine rounds of combat with these horrors and the base will have succeeded in its mission, and you and your allies will have survived to fight another day!
