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 2019 UNPUB – Three Fronts

MACE 2019 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host several brilliant game designers and publishers attending for the sole purpose of demoing and play testing their unpublished games.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.

The latest Unpublished play test is a game called Three Fronts.

Three Fronts

Three Fronts is a strategic 2-player card game in a medieval war setting. You are a general who must strategically deploy your forces in order to win an epic war using your skill, cleverness, and a little bit of luck. Position your army through early skirmishes so that you can defeat your foe in the final Showdown!

Gameplay elements: card management, trick taking, hidden information

The game takes place across 3 rounds. The objective of each round is to win battles by committing more troops to the battle than your opponent. Because there are 3 different fronts where battles take place, players must choose where they want to commit their forces. When a player wins a battle in the first 2 rounds, they gain a valuable resource, but can’t use the cards from that battle in future rounds. In the final round, each player uses their remaining cards along with the resources they have accrued to defeat their opponent once and for all.

After over a year of refinement, Three Fronts is ready for its first public playtest at MACE 2019. If you like games that emphasize deep strategy, balancing short-term and long-term rewards, and ability to think on your feet, give it a try!

Check OGRe often for updates.  More UNPUB games are expected to be added.  You must be register for MACE 2019 to participate.

MACE 2019 UNPUB: Unpublished Games

MACE 2019 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host several brilliant game designers and publishers attending for the sole purpose of demoing and play testing their unpublished games.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.  Here are a list of games currently on the schedule that are marked with the UNPUB tag, but we will have more.

UNPUB games on the schedule include

Song of the Sea: A Pirate’s Tale

*THIS IS AN OFFICIAL DEMO SESSION FOR UNPUBLISHED GAME*

Game Concepts: strategy, exploration, adventure, ship combat, thematic

You are one of several privateers who have rebelled against the tyranny of the Imperial Navy.  The Empire’s expansion across the sea and into this island chain has created a resistance, of which you have, willingly or unwillingly, become a part. You have now been labeled that which strikes fear in the hearts of men: a pirate.

Your goal is the same as the other outlaw captains: to gain a strong foothold throughout these islands, develop a reputation, gain renown, and set up a pirate lair, a base of operations from which you will be able to lead these islands—as a pirate King.

You have very little time, however. The Imperial Navy is dispatching more and more ships to invade these islands, aiming to stop your efforts and take control of the islands for themselves.  Only a true Pirate King can stand in the way of the Imperial hordes.

You have eight days. You are sailing into these islands with only your brig, a skeleton crew, a meager array of cannons, and a firm resolve. By the end of eight days, you must have constructed a pirate lair and have gained enough renown throughout the islands to be deemed the pirate King–declaring you the winner.

Six Kingdoms

Get a first look at the playtest version of a brand new board game. Six Kingdoms is a 4x (Explore, Expand, Exploit, Exterminate) fantasy-themed game that puts you in control of a noble family vying for dominion over a kingdom that suddenly finds itself with a power vacuum. Train armies, send envoys on diplomatic missions, and build improvements across the land.  Use political conniving, silver-tongued diplomacy, or just plain old brute force to become the ruling family of the entire continent!

Check OGRe often for updates.  More UNPUB games are expected to be added.  You must be register for MACE 2019 to participate.
