MACE 2021 Cornerstone Event: I Drank What Tournament

Sunday: 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
I Drank What?: Grand Championship!


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.

MACE 2021: UNPUB Games

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host several brilliant game designers and publishers attending for the sole purpose of demoing and play testing their unpublished games.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

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


Mountaineer Games

Zombie Frenzy

An unpublished game with that as a working title.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

Elementary

An unpublished game that I want to start building some interest.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!)

Guardians of Strongholme

An unpublished game set in a D&D 5E universe, where players defend the town of Strongholme from a Goblin Invasion.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.

About Hull Breach

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.

MACE West 2020: Empire Games

Empire Games will be attending MACE West, demonstrating their new game, Alchemy 101 as well as their great game, I Drank What?.  They will also be hosting a free open-play tournament for Alchemy 101. Join them as they show you how to poison your friends at a wine party and have fun doing it.

About Alchemy 101

Alchemy 101 is 2 to 6 Player game of magical mayhem!

In the game of Alchemy 101 you play young wizards at an unnamed magical academy of some questionable prestige. You are studying for the midterm exam, and your Alchemy Master has set an array of different potions and elixirs.

Your challenge is to find all the magical mixtures hidden among the Pumpkin Soda by any means necessary. To add to the test, a number of Essence of Frog have been placed among the potions. Those who get transmogrified will get an F (for frog, obviously) and must muck out the hippogriff stables (Ewwww!). This quickly becomes a problem because as soon as your teacher left the room, a less than graceful classmate has knocked over a Potion of Forgetting. Now no one remembers which potion is which. The only way to figure that out now is to start tasting.
Only one of you is walking out of here with a good grade, the rest, well, will be small, green and slimy. Alchemy 101 is a mad dash to see who gets the A, and who is hopping to the infirmary.

About Henchman, the Game

Sword & Sorcery meets The Office in this fast-paced card game about backstabbing and sucking up to an Evil Overlord!

Working for an Evil Overlord is never the safest of jobs, nor the most prestigious, and certainly not the most lucrative, but there’s still a certain amount of pride in doing so. That’s especially true when the Overlord’s fiendish plan for world domination finally comes to fruition. At that point, the best place to be is at the Overlord’s side as their right-hand man, woman, or ogre. This lofty position over all other Minions is the single goal, the end-point, the focus of every Minion to become the one and only HENCHMAN.
