mini-mace 2020: Clarion Game Studios Demos

mini-mace 2020 will once again host a full weekend of Hull Breach and Henchmen! card games by Clarion Game Studios.  Please join Todd and Lynn in the gaming rooms for 1 to 2 hour long demos of this unique and exciting card game.


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.

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.

Bunker Hill UMC. Kernersville, NC

With MACE and the Thanksgiving holidays behind us, we are getting ready for the return of mini-mace.  For those do not know, mini-mace (intentionally lowercase), is an official JustUs Productions game day in Kernersville.  We have pick up as well as scheduled games.  It’s fairly casual, smaller venue but always a good day of gaming.  We usually have food on site from the Grinning Goblin.  Attendance in the past has been between 60 to 100 people. I do realize not everyone can make it but those that think they can, please consider it.

For those that wish to propose scheduled games for mini-mace 2020, the best way to do that is through OGRe. Go to ogre.justusproductions.com.  Log in (Make an account if you don’t have one.) Click Propose Event on the left menu. We are accepting RPGs, board games, card games and anything else with a relatively small to medium sized foot-print.  Space for large miniature games is not available.

If you prefer to email me, please include as much information about your event as possible.  It is sort of a hassle to go back and forth with questions with so many GMs.  Include game name and any link that will explain the game and/or provide the description, especially if it is a obscure game.  Also include schedule preferences keeping in mind our standard 4 hr slot schedule (although you are not limited to that schedule).

Running at least one game gets you in free (although the fee is only $5).  We will be running 3 sessions for the most part.  For four hour slots, they will be

9 AM -1 PM

1:30 PM – 5:30 PM

6 PM – 10 PM

Hope you can make it.

mini-mace 2017 UNPUB: CITY State

MACE events traditionally have brilliant game designers and publishers attending for the sole purpose of demoing and play testing their unpublished games.  mini-mace 2017 will be very privileged and honored to have at least one fine designer use use our game day as a testing ground for his ideas.

CITY State

By Andrew Haigh

Never Just Settle

Six tribes of settlers arrive on a small but bountiful paradise island. Two butchers, two millers and two lumberjacks. They separate and decide to occupy six equal areas of island. Over time the tribe’s settlements grow and cities are built with outlying towns. All the time remembering the character traits of the original tribes. We join the story with each tribe having built two adjacent cities, just to the inside of their respective market area (tile) and three outlying towns.

Every day a player sends out their hunter gather to collect resources. Resources are collected without bias. So if a player moves to a Grain area, everyone with access gets to benefit.

Settlements of different sizes are needed to grow the territory covered. Every settlement is either helping to collect resources or manage and administer the settlement. So the bigger the settlement the fewer resources it can collect, however the more roads it can support for expansion.

Unfortunately the hunter gather can only carry so much, so they must return to a market. With all of these resources they can:

  • Hire additional villagers
  • Use villagers and resources to build/upgrade settlements
  • Spend resources to learn new abilities – e.g. stonemason or jeweler
  • Or as may become necessary prepare for combat – attack, defend and train mercenaries

As city states desire to get bigger and to control more territory, grab more resources, unlock new abilities; tribes will get in each other’s way. As a result, there will be squabbles over the ownership of settlements and fights will start.
