Let's play BloodRage

Capstone Board Game Cafe

Hi fellow gamers, Join me as we play one of Eric Lang's iconic Vikings game. In Blood Rage, each player controls their own Viking clan’s warriors, leader, and ship. Ragnarök has come, and it’s the end of the world! It’s the Vikings’ last chance to go down in a blaze of glory and secure their place in Valhalla at Odin’s side! For a Viking there are many pathways to glory. You can invade and pillage the land for its rewards, crush your opponents in epic battles, fulfill quests, increase your clan's stats, or even die gloriously either in battle or from Ragnarök, the ultimate inescapable doom. We will go through rules before we begin, so if you have never played the game before, don't you worry! Feel free to drop related questions in the comments below. As always, see you at the table... Aditya About the venue: Venue does not have any food services, but they allow outside food and drinks. They charge a flat rate for the evening gaming session.

Capstone Board Game Cafe

We will play the new edition of Endeavor: Age of Sail. [Co-hosted with Kevan.] BGG: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/233398/endeavor-age-sail Rules: https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/69e02c_2d78b589291542e585eb32f413740930.pdf Intro video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnyRlL36FAQ In Endeavor: Age of Sail, players strive to earn glory for their empires. Sailing out from Europe and the Mediterranean, players will establish shipping routes and occupy cities the world over. As they do so, players will leverage their growing industry, culture, finance, and Influence, building their engine and extending their reach into the far-flung regions of the world. In this second edition, players will experience: • Double-sided board to accommodate different player counts • Variable starting set ups with new buildings • Exploits to enhance the mechanisms and story of the different regions • Updated visuals by the original artist and graphic designer, Josh Cappel Rules will be explained before we begin. ============================= The cost will be about $60, paid directly to the venue.

Imperial 2030 and Splendor

Capstone Boardgame Cafe

We'll play Imperial 2030, and Splendor if time permits! http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/54138/imperial-2030 Rules: http://riograndegames.com/getFile.php?id=479 The six powers (USA, Europe, Russia, China, India, and Brazil) develop their industrial bases and build up armies and fleets. They fight over control of neutral land and sea areas in order to become the most powerful nation worldwide. This is NOT a wargame; it is an investment game, but you get richer as the nation gets more powerful. In this game it is not the players who take turns, but the six powers, one after another. The players are just internationally operating investors who act in the background. By giving money to the six powers, which all have their own treasuries, the players influence the politics. The biggest investor in each nation gains control of that nation's government and decides what the nation will do. As control of a government can change with each new investment, players may control several governments at the same time. As investors, players should not get too attached to their preferred nation, but rather focus on where their investments have the best rates of return. Essentially the game is about money, and not about military domination! ================= The fee will be paid directly to the venue and the cost will be $70 per person. They do not serve food there, though you can bring food in or order food for delivery there.

Provisionally: Container

Capstone Boardgame Cafe

We'll play Container, and Splendor if time permits! BGG: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/26990/container Rules: https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/26832/container-rulespdf A game of alternative economy, where prices, money, supply and demand don't quite behave as you expect them to, but figuring it out is half the fun. Container is a game about big ships and big production. Each player will play both as a producer and shipper of goods. Players will decide which products they want to produce, and which of the OTHER players' goods they want to ship out to a remote island. During these phases, players will be able to set the prices for their goods and try to maximise their cash! Once the goods have reached the island, players will play the part of the purchaser for their tiny island. Players bid for the goods arriving each day by ship, and the highest bidder collects these goods for conversion into points at the end of the game. ================= The fee will be $70 per person, paid directly to the venue. They do not serve food there, though you can bring food in or order food for delivery there.
