MACE 2018: North Carolina State Championship Regionals

MACE 2018 is proud to announce, in conjunction with the Double Exposure and their Envoy program, the several board and card game 2018 North Carolina State Championship Regional touranments.   The top four winners of our Championship gets a copy of the game. The winner gets a trophy, a free membership to Game-O-Rama (Atlanta, May 2019), and a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2019 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2019)!

Here are the games we are hosting as North Carolina State Championship Regional tournaments:

Friday 7PM – 10PM 

The 2018 North Carolina State Diamonds Championship

This Stronghold game by Mike Fitzgerald is a trick-taking card game in which players collect Diamonds – not cards bearing that suit, mind you, but rather actual “Diamond Crystals”. What makes the game of Diamonds different from other trick-taking card games is that when you cannot follow suit you get a “Suit Action” based on what suit you do play. Suit Actions are also taken by the winner of each trick, as well as at the end of a full Round of play. Whoever has the most points in Diamond Crystals at the end of the game wins! The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2019 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2019)!

Friday 9PM – 12AM 

The 2018 North Carolina State Coup Championship

You are head of a family in an Italian city-state, a city run by a weak and corrupt court. You need to manipulate, bluff and bribe your way to power. Your object is to destroy the influence of all the other families, forcing them into exile. Only one family will survive… In Coup, you want to be the last player with influence in the game, with influence being represented by face-down character cards in your playing area. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2019 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2019)!

Saturday 10AM – 1PM 

The 2018 North Carolina State Nevermore Championship

This game from Smirk & Dagger is a casual-style, card-drafting game in which you quickly build your hand each round, collecting cards you want and poisoning your opponent’s hand by passing along cards you think they can’t use. Whoever holds the most of a given suit, gains the power of that suit to attack, heal, acquire Light or Shadow magicks and score victory points. Will you transform all your rivals into ravens – or can they regain their human form in time to score enough victory to win? The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2019 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2019)!

Saturday 12PM – 3PM 

The 2018 North Carolina State Wordsy Championship

Wordsy is a streamlined re-implementation of Prolix, a word game from 2010. Each round, players study the 8 letters (always consonants) on the board in real time. The first player to write down a word flips a 30-second timer. That player is now the fastest player, and every other player now has 30 seconds to write down their word. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2019 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2019)!

Saturday 2PM – 5PM

The 2018 North Carolina State ICECOOL Championship

A flicking game in which each round one of the players takes the role of the Hall Monitor – his aim will be to catch each other penguin and get points for that. The others will try to run through several doors, thus gaining fish (that give them points) on their way. When either the Hall Monitor has caught each other penguin once or any of the others has gone through all 3 doors that have fish on them, the round is over. After each player is the Hall Monitor once, whoever has the most points on their fish cards wins. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2019 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2019)!

Saturday 4PM – 7PM

The 2018 North Carolina State Pyramid Poker Championship

Each player then takes fifteen blocks and turns the blocks so that only they see what’s on them. They take turns placing the blocks into a two-dimensional pyramid-shaped structure, again seeing only their blocks, then they take turns removing any one block from the pyramid and placing it into one of three poker hands that they’re constructing. Each poker hand is competing against the one opposite it that’s being built by the opponent. Once all the blocks have been removed, the player who wins two or three of the poker hands wins! The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2019 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2019)!

Saturday 7PM – 10PM

The 2018 North Carolina State New York Slice Championship

Each player slices pizzas into portions, giving their opponents first choice, while they take the leftovers. There are a dozen kinds of pizza to work with, from veggie to hawaiian to meat lover’s, and each player decides if they want to eat or keep some of the slices, building the best collection of pizzas possible! The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2019 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2019)!

Saturday 9PM – 12AM

The 2018 North Carolina State Skull King Championship

Brent Beck’s Skull King is a trick-taking game similar to Oh Hell!, Wizard and Spades, with players needing to state how many tricks they think they’ll win each round. Pirates and other special cards add to the strategy. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2019 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2019)!

Sunday 10AM – 1PM 

The 2018 North Carolina State Dimension Championship

Dimension is a fast-paced, innovative puzzle game that takes place in three dimensions with 60 colorful spheres. All of the players play at the same time. Everybody tries to position the spheres on their trays to earn as many points as possible. The task cards indicate how the spheres must be placed to earn points. Complete these tasks while racing against the timer. You get a point for each sphere you use and a bonus token for using all five colors, but you lose two points for each task card you don’t follow correctly. Prove to your opponents that you are the master of multi-dimensional thinking! The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2019 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2019)!

Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game

About the Game

The Emerald Empire of Rokugan. It is a land upheld by honor, guided by fate, ruled by destiny. The Great Clans each support the Emperor, but inter-clan conflict is inevitable—both in the Emperor’s courts and on the battlefield. In the midst of danger and turmoil, honor must be your sword and your armor.

Enter the vibrant world of Rokugan with Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game, a Living Card Game® of honor and conflict for two players! Drawing on the legacy of AEG’s original Legend of the Five Rings collectible card game, and now reimagined with new mechanics, story, and the Living Card Game distribution model, you are invited to join the Great Clans, uphold the tenets of Bushidō, and fulfill your duty to your daimyō and the Emperor in a world shaped and changed by a dynamic, player-influenced story.

During the game, you take on the leadership of one of the Great Clans which define Rokugani society, and you are cast into conflict against another clan. Your conflicts will decide the future of Rokugan, whether you’re battling with a katana or with cutting words, but the samurai of your clan cannot remain by your side indefinitely—when their destinies are fulfilled, you must find new allies to continue your conflicts. Ultimately, it’s your choice whether you will fight with honor or use unsavory means, but in every game, it is your role to lead your clan to victory.
