MACE 2019 Featured Tabletop Game: Berd

MACE 2019 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.

MACE 2019 Featured: Might and Right – World of Darkness Live Action Role Play

A Vampire: The Dark Ages LARP Presented by Charlotte UT.

“If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it.” -Caesar

This is the Long Night. These are the Dark Nights. The night is yours to rule! Kingdoms rise and fall. The Cross and Crescent war for the souls of the humanity, even as those who follow the older ways are pushed to the fringes of the world. Throughout this tumultuous time, the Children of Caine move their pawns across a board spanning empires and myriad cultures. Secure in their unholy might, Vampiric Kings and Princes hold court and decide the fates of Kindred and Kine alike. The time of the Faith and Fire is not yet upon the world, and the Vampires reign supreme. Power belongs to those with the will to wield it, and all others must follow or be left behind. But beware of others with power and ambition. The night is Dark indeed…

This is a Vampire the Dark Ages LARP. We will be using the By Night Studios Vampire the Masquerade rules, with some minor modifications due to setting. All Characters are pre-generated. Please contact the STs at  for more information or to request a specific type of character.

Please see this games on OGRe. You must be registered for MACE 2019 to participate.
