MACE 2018 Layout PDF

Please note a few things on this map.

MACE 2018 hotel convention space layout PDF

(1) Red Dot (Midway room) is where paid/paying attendees go if they want to pick up their paid badge or pay for their badge.  It is also where the Grinning Goblin is going to be. (Red for Registration)

(2) Green Dot (outside Glenwaters room) is where GMs go to pick up their badges and sign in.  It is also where gaming registration is and where players go to sign up for games if they can’t do it on their own (you can sign up all weekend on OGRe with an activated account).  There will be an onsite activation code for those that pay at the door. (Green for GMs or Gaming)

(3) Room Features are featured games or events in that room but NOT the only thing in that room.  That just helps people find the specific feature they are looking for and reduces the amount of traffic control we have to do.  Red text, however, indicates dedicated rooms (these rooms are dedicated to what the text reads).

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 2017 Featured Miniature Game: Star Wars X-Wing

MACE  2017 will be host to a Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Tournament Saturday starting 1 PM until it ends.  Open casual play and demos will be available both Friday and Saturday.  Bring your X-Wing minis and compete with the best that MACE has to offer.  Win prizes! Demos and open play will continue Saturday and Sunday.

The Tournament will be run by representatives from Carolina Krayts in the Triad as well as the GnomeCon in Savannah, Georgia.  Prizes will be provided in part by artist and writer Davey Beauchamp!

MACE will be hosting an X-Wing Miniatures tournament! X-Wing is an exciting game of fast-paced ship-to-ship combat. Two players take control of their squad of X-Wings, TIE fighters, and other ships from the Star Wars universe and pit them against each other in thrilling, tactical space battles. Choose your faction and build your squad of daring Rebels, merciless Imperials, or treacherous Scum and Villainy, and pilot your forces to victory!

We will be using the standard FFG tournament rules, so bring your favorite 100 point squad. This will be a relaxed tier event. From Fantasy Flight: tournaments at this level are welcoming to all players, regardless of experience level. Players are encouraged to help each other improve and learn, so long as it does not significantly disrupt the game. The focus is on creating a fun and friendly environment.

There will be a number of standard, 75 minute Swiss rounds based on attendance, followed by a cut and single elimination rounds (again depending on the number of players). The tournament format will use FFG’s basic tournament structure, and the applicable current event documents and FAQ. All tournament documents can be found on FFG’s X-Wing page under support: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/x-wing/

About Star Wars: X-Wing

Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful Rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE fighters, facing them against each other in fast-paced space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, the X-Wing Miniatures Game recreates exciting Star Wars space combat throughout its several included scenarios. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission!  Whatever your chosen vessel, the rules of X-Wing facilitate fast and visceral gameplay that puts you in the middle of Star Wars fiercest firefights. Each ship type has its own unique piloting dial, which is used to secretly select a speed and maneuver each turn. After planning maneuvers, each ship`s dial is revealed and executed (starting with the lowest skilled pilot). So whether you rush headlong toward your enemy showering his forward deflectors in laser fire, or dance away from him as you attempt to acquire a targeting lock, you`ll be in total control throughout all the tense dogfighting action.  Star Wars: X-Wing features a number of unique missions, and each has its own set of victory conditions; with such a broad selection of missions, only clever and versatile pilots employing a range of tactics will emerge victorious. What`s more, no mission will ever play the same way twice, thanks to a range of customization options, varied maneuvers, and possible combat outcomes. Damage, for example, is determined through dice and applied in the form of a shuffled Damage Deck. Each time your fighter sustains a hit, you`ll draw a card that assigns a special handicap. Was your targeting computer damaged, affecting your ability to acquire a lock on the enemy? Perhaps an ill-timed weapon malfunction will limit your offensive capabilities. Or worse yet, your pilot could be injured, compromising his ability to focus on the life-and-death struggle in which he is engaged…  The Star Wars: X-Wing starter set includes everything you need to begin your battles, such as scenarios, cards, and fully assembled and painted ships. What`s more, Star Wars: X-Wing`s quick-to-learn ruleset establishes the foundation for a system that can be expanded with your favorite ships and characters from the Star Wars universe.
