All Day Game Day

Have fun with Tabletop games!

This is a full day of tabletop gaming goodness! There will often be scheduled events (see below) but there will always be a great opportunity for Open Gaming all day with our growing game library available. You are also welcome to bring along any games of your own that you would like to play with new friends. Entry fee is included in monthly $5 membership.

This month we’re featuring not one, but TWO Role Playing Games, so whether you like modern RPGs or classic Fantasy role-play, come up and have fun!

Early Session: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Pathfinder (RPG)
The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a brave adventurer fighting to survive in a world beset by magic and evil!  This game session will be geared toward beginners, but all players of all levels of experience are welcome. The game will be for 3-6 players, characters will be 8th level. Pre-generated characters will be provided.
GM: Bruce Snow ; 3-6 players

Starting at 2 P.M.

Unknown Armies (RPG)
The Grail Mystery: A Unknown Armies RPG Scenario in Two parts
Intro: The adventure takes place in St Louis, MO, perhaps the most dangerous city in the USA, in some of its worst streets and neighborhoods, in January, of 2001. The Whispers Reality TV team, which specializes in supernatural content, is sent to investigate a series of attacks and murders attributed to an urban “Werewolf”, which has ravaged the city’s homeless community. These attacks are finally beginning to gather some media attention due to the severity of the attacks, not because of the specific population being affected, but because of, “Who Cares?” A Werewolf story, supported by media proof would be a great story, indeed. . . What the PC’s don’t know is that this may become their greatest story: murder, disappearances, a magickally powered serial predator and more . . . This is where the Whispers team stumbles into the Occult Underground, an all-encompassing, hidden reality behind the illusion of normalcy

Dominos (Chickenfoot) (Boardgame)
Chickenfoot itself is at heart a tile laying network game.  You play 10 rounds, each round starts with a different double domino working your way up from double-blank to double-nine. You must first fill the double chickenfoot with the 4 tiles that go around it. If you can’t fill you must draw a new tile. Once the chickenfoot is played you may play a new domino, either putting a number against a number or playing a double tile in a T arrangement across another domino, this becomes a new chickenfoot and must be filled before continuing, a player draws a tile if they can’t finish the Chickenfoot. The round ends when one player has no tile, or there are no tiles left to play on a chickenfoot.
A fun game that can be played by gamers and non-gamers alike.
GM: Jeannie Compter; 2-6 players

Sorry   (Boardgame)
Race your four game pieces from Start around the board to your Home in this Pachisi type game.

GM: Jeannie Compter; 2-5 players

 

 

Tournament Rules:

The official rules of the game will be available on the day of the tournament.

There will be a Preliminary Round of 1 or 2 heats, depending on the number of participants.  
As best we can, we will fill tables of 6 to play the game, or if we can’t, then we will fill tables as evenly as possible.
Games will use the speed die to accelerate play.
Games will last for 1.5 hours.  At that time, after finishing the current round with all players getting the same number of turns, the players will add up the value of their property:

(1) cash on hand;
(2) lots, utilities and railroads owned, at the price printed on the board;
(3) any mortgaged property owned, at one-half the price printed on the board;
(4) houses, valued at purchase price;
(5) hotels, valued at purchase price including the value of the 4 houses turned in.

Players will be ranked in order of finish for each round.
A score of 1 will be assigned to the winner of the game (the player with the most value).
The highest number score will be assigned to the player with lowest money total or to the first player to go bankrupt.
Scores (money value) for each game will also be kept for each player.
The top 6 players (those with the lowest rank) from the Preliminary Round will advance to the Final Round.
If there is a tie, it will be decided by the amount of money value the tied players had.
The Final Round will decide the winners. If there is a tie, it will be decided by the total amount of money value the tied players had in both rounds.

House Rules

Immunities are not allowed. (For example: “I’ll trade you this property if you don’t make me pay when I land on it the next 3 times”).
No advice giving.
Each player is given $2500 at the beginning of the game (3 $500s, Seven $100s, Two $50s, Six $20s, Five $10s, Five $5s, Five $1s.

“Official” Rule Clarifications

“FREE PARKING”… A player landing on this place does not receive any money, property or reward of any kind. This is just a “free” resting place.
The buying and selling of houses does not have to occur on your turn, but rather, can be done at any time during the game.
Each game board must have exactly 32 houses and 12 hotels.
When a player rolls doubles on the 3rd roll when in jail, the person moves no matter what. If they roll doubles, they move and do not pay the $50 (They do not roll again even though doubles were rolled). If the player does not roll doubles, they pay the $50, then move.
When a player lands on a utilities spot, they do not roll again, but instead, use the total of the dice that got them there (not including the Speed Die).
If a player lands on an available property and chooses not to purchase it, the property is auctioned off to the highest bidder.
Auctions are held for individual houses or hotels if there is a shortage. The winning bidder must pay a minimum of the price stated for houses and hotels for that property’s card.
You can trade mortgaged property. It just needs to be treated as still mortgaged.
Money can be loaned to a player only by the Bank and then only by mortgaging property. No player may borrow from or lend money to another player.
