This play test event will be dedicated to either OUBLIETTE or SQUADRA DELLA STRADA

Oubliette is a four player game and Squadra della Strada is for two players, so, what we play depends on how many people sign up to attend.

Oubliette is a family game suitable for players aged 8 and up. Players are prisoners forgotten in an underground maze. There's no direct path to the center but the prisoners have the power to move the hallways and reshape the maze as they move through it. Only the first one up the ladder will escape. Will it be you? Oubliette is played on a randomly assembled 7x7 tile grid. Cards drawn from a common deck give the players the ability to shift the maze tiles, move themselves, or move their opponents. Players can also obtain equipment cards that will let them make special moves. The game has a high "gottcha" level as players do everything possible to both advance themselves and set the other players back.

Squadra della Strada is a tile laying and road building game for two players who take on the roles of competing road building companies trying to be the first to link four cities on a randomly assembled map. Each turn players assign road crews to work on segments of the highway but some terrain is harder to build on than others but you earn funding points that can be used to buy more equipment and more road choices. Weather, site inspectors, and tree-huggers can slow things to a crawl but lawyers, bonuses and bribes can get the crew back on track. Squadra della Strada is played on a hex tile map that is different every game. A typical game takes less than an hour to play so we should be able to get in two or three games in an evening.

We hope to see you there!
