MACE 2017 Features Publisher: King Frog Entertainment & World of Wonders

MACE 2017 will feature official demos of a new unpublished card game called World of Wonders.  One of MACE’s oldest supporters, Scott Ilkenhons returns to MACE after a long hiatus from MACE with his new game publishing company King Frog Entertainment.

In World of Wonders, the players are district Mayors in a grand civilization using cards to build city structures that support the construction of World Wonders, thereby gaining glory for their house in order to win. The game uses both sides of the cards, features panoramic card layouts, and allows for a multitude of play styles.

So simple, but so many decisions to make.” – Tim N.

Fun, easy game to get in to, and so many ways to play it.” – Dan V.

King Frog Entertainment is a new game company based out of Winston-Salem, NC and is featuring a demo of their soon to be released card game. We hope that you will be among the first to check out the first public reveal, and of course enjoy our game.

MACE 2017 Features Publisher: Hero’s Crossing Board Game

MACE 2017 will feature official demos most of the weekend of a new indie board game called Hero’s Crossing.

What do you suppose life is like for the NPCs in an RPG? Hero’s Crossing is the board game that answers that! In Hero’s Crossing, your goal isn’t to go on quests and fight the Big Bad – it’s to run a town, craft weapons, and sell items to heroes so that they can go off to save the world while you focus on the hard work of city building.

All the while, the game is uniquely styled to echo back to the evolution of early console video games – you start in the 8-bit era, and as the game progresses you advance into the 16-bit and 32-bit eras, with the art style changing to reflect the change in times.

Hero’s Crossing blends the depth of strategy board games with the art and theme of console RPGs into a unique game that gamers of all varieties can enjoy.

About Twilight Imperium

The galaxy is in limbo. In a time of such betrayal, trust is a word loosely associated with foolishness. As you await the arrival of trade goods, which should have arrived a week ago, you check your daily logs. A transmission hails in and is patched through. It’s the Hacan trade ambassador alerting you that as of now, “All trades are off.” As he does so, proximity klaxons scream through your base and the screen flickers with a sight you never wished to see—a Warsun. The Hacan sold you out, and now they’re having the L1z1x Mindnet do their dirty work.

Twilight Imperium is an epic board game of galactic conquest for three to six players. Each player takes command of one of ten unique civilizations to compete for interstellar supremacy through warfare, trade, uncertain allegiances, and political dominance. Each civilization provides a unique game experience with different abilities and play styles. Will you play as the Emirates of Hacan and preside over every trade agreement made in the galaxy, or will you be the Federation of Sol and rapidly take over worlds in hopes of dominating the entire galaxy? In Twilight Imperium, many paths lead to the center of the galaxy, but every path is forged from broken promises.

MACE West 2017: Unpublished Games by Andrew Haigh Games

Andrew Haigh returns to another MACE event with another round of playtests of his unpublished game designs, Pizza World and CITY State.  Please check them out on our game schedule, OGRe.  You must be registered to MACE West 2017 to participate.

Pizza World

By Andrew Haigh

Players are master pizza makers looking for the finest ingredients in a market. Each player is given several shopping lists of ingredients to collect. Unfortunately with a limited number of ingredients in the market, getting the ingredients you need may not be easy, especially if another player got there first.

Pizza World is a game about completing as many personal and shared shopping lists as possible, some ‘take that’ elements and remembering where you last saw an ingredient – although they might not be where you thought. Make friends, or not, as you compete for the ingredients you need.
Plays 2-6 for about 30-45 minutes

CITY State

By Andrew Haigh

Never Just Settle

Six tribes of settlers arrive on a small but bountiful paradise island. Two butchers, two millers and two lumberjacks. They separate and decide to occupy six equal areas of island. Over time the tribe’s settlements grow and cities are built with outlying towns. All the time remembering the character traits of the original tribes. We join the story with each tribe having built two adjacent cities, just to the inside of their respective market area (tile) and three outlying towns.

Every day a player sends out their hunter gather to collect resources. Resources are collected without bias. So if a player moves to a Grain area, everyone with access gets to benefit.

Settlements of different sizes are needed to grow the territory covered. Every settlement is either helping to collect resources or manage and administer the settlement. So the bigger the settlement the fewer resources it can collect, however the more roads it can support for expansion.

Unfortunately the hunter gather can only carry so much, so they must return to a market. With all of these resources they can:

  • Hire additional villagers
  • Use villagers and resources to build/upgrade settlements
  • Spend resources to learn new abilities – e.g. stonemason or jeweler
  • Or as may become necessary prepare for combat – attack, defend and train mercenaries

As city states desire to get bigger and to control more territory, grab more resources, unlock new abilities; tribes will get in each other’s way. As a result, there will be squabbles over the ownership of settlements and fights will start.
