MACE 2017 Featured Playtest: Grim Tide

MACE 2017 will feature official playtest most on Sunday of a new independent unpublished board game called Grim Tide

Grim Tide is a dynamic board game of 19th century nautical horror for 2 to 4 players.

Sail the treacherous waters of the Dark Sea as captain of your ship. A deadly monster lurks in the waves, drawing closer with every shift of the tide. Only the most desperate or foolhardy captains venture far from shore. You, friend, are one of these.

In search of great renown within this cursed corner of the world, you will slay the beasts that haunt the black waves and display their trophies at the crowded port markets of Blackbrooke and Kingsfall. You’ll discover islands and salvage lost items or eerie artifacts washed up on their distant shores.  Every day brings new horrors, risks, and winds to fill your sails. You will sacrifice your own crew, wealth and sanity to ensure that it is your ship that rises with the grim tide.

At its heart, Grim Tide is a game about exploration. You’ll start with a board composed of random, face-down tiles with hidden dangers that you’ll discover as you explore them. You’ll have to balance the morale of your captain against the horrors of the sea as you outfit your ship with the best combination of  crew and items to suit your strategy. You could focus on faster movement and trade, arm yourself to hunt the foul monsters of the deep, or avoid combat and make your name as a master fisher. These routes all lead to Renown, which is the way to victory in Grim Tide. But don’t go to sea unprepared. A reckless captain will surely face madness, mutiny, or destruction under the slimy tentacles of the Kraken.

MACE 2017 Featured Playtest: Arms & Ambition

MACE 2017 will feature official playtest most of the weekend of a new independent unpublished board game called Arms & Ambition

Epic but fast paced!   If you like games like Axis and Allies you’ll like this.  Arms and Ambition was designed from the beginning to be a fun to play, strategic operations game that is very open, repeatable, and straightforward.  Story elements and buff cards make the world seem alive.

This thing is big:  A 1 inch hex map that is 4 feet by 5 feet means there a lots of places to be and ways to get there.  A unique unit stacking system means that a lot of stuff can be in one tiny place and be easily seen and managed.  Did we mention that it plays with up to 8 players?

And yet it moves quickly:  All movement is simultaneous, which may sound chaotic, but really isn’t and just means there is little to no waiting time.  Battles are determined by one roll per side so they get resolved quickly.  Starting units and intermixed starting positions mean that the game doesn’t take long to get going.

Each playable Family has a unique set of 2 Family Ambitions that grant victory points when achieved.  These are challenging, in conflict with other players, but achievable in a single session of gaming.  Playing as each Family feels like playing a new scenario.
