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.

MACE West 2020: The Midnight Worlds RPG Playtests

MACE West 2020 is proud to host a soon to be kickstarted RPG called The Midnight World.  Find it on the schedule both Friday and Saturday night, GM’ed by Corby Stroud.

About The Midnight World

ROLE-PLAYING DREAD

The Midnight World is a narrative driven horror role playing game focused heavily on mounting anxiety and tension…that creeping dread you experience when you know something terrible is hiding somewhere just out of sight.Like other entries in the horror RPG market, The Midnight World seeks to tell grand stories of mind-cracking terror. Unlike those games, which tend to focus on the big flashy moments at the beginning and end of a story, The Midnight World tries to digs its claws into the stories that happen between, around, after and before them.

LIVING WITH THE MEMORY

Every Player Character in The Midnight World has had a brush with the terrifying creatures across the Twilight Veil. They all live every day with the awful memory of that event, and the heart-crushing anxiety that it might happen again.  Memory plays heavily into The Midnight World’s mechanical system. Character creation is based off of each character’s recollection of their own dance with cosmic horror. The way they recall that event provides the framework for their abilities, skills and backstory.  The character creation process can take as few as a couple of minutes, using pre-generated memory blocks, or the player can meticulously craft a memory and character sheet based on their desires.

THE 11TH HOUR

Just as the minutes constantly slip away in real life, the pendulum of The Midnight World’s clock swings steadily and without pause. Hour by hour, the hands creep towards their apex. Once it has been set in motion, there’s nothing anyone can do to stop it. The Midnight World’s system is designed to replicate the feeling of constantly creeping tension, of building pressure in your skull that must eventually rupture. When the clock chimes Twelve for you, will it be a relief or just some new kind of horror?

MACE West 2020: Divus Ex LARP

At MACE West 2020 will be hosting a live action role play event based on the Divus Ex live action role play system.

Divus Ex: Greece – A New World

The power of the gods has waned as the world moved on and let them fall into myth and legend. As their power fades, the gods of Olympus wonder at their fate when before them Gaia appears, mother of all creation, and looks upon them with pity. Using the last of her powers, she makes a new world for gods to inhabit and rule over, with new people ready to believe and awe at their divinity. But how will they shape the world they have been given? Will they be benevolent or cruel? Will the gods and goddess that ruled before still stand at the top? Or will power on New Olympus be different from the old world?

Divus Ex: Greece is a game of deities ruling over the world of man and vying for power. You will take on the role of one of these deities in our live action role-playing game. The game will last for 4 hours and is open to mature players of any experience. Adult themes are not uncommon in any mythology so under 18 can only play with a guardian’s permission.

Original Game By: Three Fates Gaming. GMs: Rev. Chris Cox, Dr. William Ward, and Mr. Anonymous

About Divus Ex:

Surrounded by marble and searing light, you gaze down upon the Mystic Domains. With a thought, you alter the destinies of men, control the elements, crush empires on a whim. Mortals build altars and temples in your name, lie prostrate before you, and obey your every word.

Think it’s all nectar and ambrosia up here?  Think again.

You are but one of a multitude of gods — some good, some evil, others simply uncaring. Each has his own powers, his own sovereignty, and his own agenda. Use Pentacles, Chalices, Wands, and Swords in a struggle to further your own schemes. Alter events in the mortal world and influence your fellow deities. In any case, avoid wreaking havoc with blatant acts or face the wrath of the Fate-Decider. But even his decree won’t always stand firm. After all…  You Are a God.
