MACE West 2020 Featured Tabletop Game: Berd

MACE West 2020 is proud to welcome Michael Mikaelian and his game Berd.  He will be demoing his game most of the weekend as open demos in the Gallery.

 

About Berd

The “Berd” is an ancient word that stands for a fortress or prison. The goal of the game is to collect the most tokens of any color by the end of the game. Playing pieces in the Berd game have ability to attach/detach to each other. That allows players to move a stack of tokens like a single unit and split the structure when needed. Using interlocking blocks players can create towers and a certain type of tower – Berd has unique properties that make this game special.

The design of the game is specially made simple underlying an easy and logical concept of the game. However the Berd is a serious game and players have to think strategically to win. Also, the board without a theme allows to play many different Berd games.

The board of the Berd game has a shape of a square castle from top view. In fact the starting/finishing corner squares were designed larger for accommodating four stacks of tokens. Berd game can be played by two and more players. The game set includes two different games and over six game variations for each game. Berd game can be setup in few seconds. Duration of any option of the Berd game depends on how many tokens are played. So players can set up a rapid game of 10 minutes or a long game of 90 minutes. The Berd game for two players may last less than 5 minutes. Berd game can be adjusted for luck and strategy. By employing more tokens in the game it becomes heavier in strategy.

Berd game perfectly fits for tournaments because players can accumulate tokens (or points) in series of games with different players. The interlocking blocks in the “Berd” game are made of high quality ABS plastic with thick walls, so they can last forever without wearing and breaking. The Berd game is ideal for educating children, especially when using value assigned tokens. The game can also help developing strategic thinking.

About unPerfect Heroes: Battle Lines

Imagine standing at the back of a line that you really need to reach the front of… urgently. The line to the buffet two minutes before closing time or the port-o-poop line at the all-day chili cookoff for instance. Welcome to unPerfect Heroes: Battle Lines, the game where you move members of the misfit Waple family against various Bad Guys who have the same goal as you.

You can play unPerfect Heroes: Battle Lines by sharing one deck of 52 cards (consisting of 20 Heroes, aka Waple family members, 20 Bad Guys and 12 Random Crap cards) or each player can have their own deck. Players start by choosing a scenario board and character pieces. The person trying to cut in line plays a Hero card against another player and rolls up to 8 dice to try to fight or bribe his way further up the line. When the odds aren’t too good, he may try to chicken out and get a bonus for his next try.

Win by getting your piece up to the finish line first and making your opponents have to wait, “just like you did”.
