Games to play at the QCC #3. Sunday Morning

There’s always going to be more games to play at the QCC. Let’s see what you might want to play on Sunday Morning

The Big Pie Caper (9 AM)

Guest Jennifer Adcock is bringing her Costume Fairy Adventures game for those young and young of heart.  Here’s the description of the game:

There’s nothing that fairies love more than mischief. Well, almost nothing. When several villagers ask for help from the notoriously mercurial fae folk, right in the middle of their annual pie festival, things are bound to get a little bit… messy. After all, it wouldn’t be any fun if there weren’t a few surprises. Eat the most pie, cause the most chaos, and of course, wear the coolest costumes to gain their powers.

Hotel 96 (10 AM)

Mike is running some Savage Worlds on Sunday morning and Hotel 96 seems to have a very Hotel California vibe to it. Check out the description:

Hotel 96 is waiting for you. It promises fine music, great food, and a release of the soul … but it has a burning desire to make you stay for good! Burn off a little steam … but you do need to get back to Pinebox and ETU (East Texas University), as you have classes on Monday. 
Note: Should take about 4 hours, but allows for a lunch break.

Zaya’s Promise (11 AM)

Our only game on the schedule starting at 11 AM is Zaya’s Promise. It’s run by special guest Stacy Dellorfano and uses the Swords & Wizardry system. Here’s the description of the event:

Long ago, a whole town and the valley it inhabited disappeared. Rumors persist that the town was swallowed up by a sea of brambles & the valley made uninhabitable. Dare you seek what lies inside? 
Run by the creator! Zaya’s Promise was published by Frog God Games for the Swords & Wizardry 3rd printing. The adventure features a constantly shifting dungeon that plays differently every time in a fun house wonderland dungeon that’s just as deadly as it is fascinating.

Five Tribes with the Expansion (Noon)

Angela Bullied is bringing out some Five Tribes, an excellent worker displacement board game from Days of Wonder. Here’s the description:

Five Tribes builds on a long tradition of German games with wooden Meeples in a unique twist on the Worker Placement game genre. While the rules are quite easy to learn and understand, implementing a winning strategy will take a calculated approach.  In this worker displacement game, you score by carefully maneuvering the Five Tribes of Meeples over the tiles that make up the ancient city-state of the Sultanate of Naqala. You need to look ahead to determine what moves will not only position you to score well, but put your opponents at a disadvantage. It’s when, how and where you dis-place the Five Tribes of Assassins, Elders, Builders, Merchants & Viziers that will determine your victory or failure!

There’s Sunday Morning. If you’re one of the brave willing to get up that early for a game we wanted to make sure you knew what some of the offerings were. For more games check out the full schedule.

 

Games to play at the QCC #2

Hey folks. Another posts about the games that will be running at the QCC that you might want to play.

Big Trouble in Little Italy

Special Guest Stacy Dellorfano is running Big Trouble in Little Italy, a game based on Mage: The Ascension 2nd edition with some modifications by her.

There’s something strange going on in San Diego’s Little Italy. While the mundane world sees a neighborhood with its Italian roots long buried in modern gentrification, just beneath the surface lies the final refuge of some of Italy’s long lost gods and goddesses. Word has it a powerful mage wants to trap and steal the power of one of those deities to attain true immortality through a dangerous ritual. Can you and your friends stop them before it’s too late?

I’ll have three more of our many many events in a few days. Thanks for your support and we can’t wait to game with you in September.

3 Days Left – Over $9,000 and Gaming Experiences

Hey folks. We have three days left in the Kickstarter, we’re over $9,000 which means there’s gonna be a convention, and we’re now working on Stretch Goals.

Late Night Gaming

If we reach $10,000 we’ll have the Hyatt area by the bar and those tables in the area open for gaming until 2 am. We’ll bring a bunch of board games over for open gaming. We’re also planning on having some events for that area and that time frame.

Dice

We have our dice for this year, or at least the colors picked out. We’ll be ordering some but if we get to $12,000 then everyone with a badge from the Kickstarter gets a die for free. Otherwise they’re a dollar each and you can add them onto your pledge. We should mention we have sold out of dice every year and we can’t get more. If you want some dice I suggest getting in early and letting us know how many you want.

Gaming Experiences

So there’s a thing we wanted to focus a little more on this year and that’s the gaming experience. The QCC is a gaming convention before it’s anything else and we want to provide the chance for some experiences you might not otherwise have. That’s why some of the levels and games you can participate in are on the Kickstarter. We wanted to give backers first crack at them. To that, here’s the list of the experiences we have going on currently:

Savage Kings of the World AKA Savage Retribution
This is a 3 session Savage Worlds mini campaign with Vickey Beaver of Obatron productions, one of the creators of the Retribution Setting. That means you get to play with the designer and get your 3 day badge.

Zombicide Knight – Play a bunch of Zombicide
This level gets you 12 hours and a mini campaign of Zombicide: Black Plague/Wolfsburg with Paul Burleson, including a custom scenario to save Mark Knapik featuring the Mark Knapik mini from 2015. You also get your 3 day badge and there’s a rumor that Paul might even have the new expansion for Zombicide at the Con that’s kickstarting right now. It’s just a rumor but that’d be a pretty cool bonus if he does have it.

Knight of Madness – Play a bunch of Cthulhu Wars
This is 12 hours of Cthulhu wars with board game maven Mike Beiter, he’ll have material from the base game and the expansions. So this is multiple boards, more factions, and all the Lovecraftian mini’s madness you can experience without owning the game. You also get your 3 day badge if you’re insane enough to back at this level.

Ryuutama, the Natural Fantasy RPG, is an Ennie Award winning game. If you’re into JRPGs and journey styled storytelling this is a game you’ll want to play. Guest Rach Shelkey from the Toronto Gamers Association, Breakout Con, and It’s Like D&D, will be running the game on Sunday at 1pm, I can’t think of a better way to close out the con. You get a spot in the game and your 3 day badge with this level.

Play Love & Justice with Senda Linaugh Love & Justice is a Magical Girls RPG and guest Senda Linaugh AKA Giggles, AKA Skill Monkey, and the Panda who has all our hearts, is running it. Senda knows Magical Girls like no one else we know. So, if you love magical girls you’ll want to back this level. It gets you in Senda’s game on Saturday at 1pm and your 3 day badge.

Steamscapes is a Savage Worlds Historical Steampunk RPG and you can play with guest and designer of the game, Eric Simon, on Saturday at 7pm.
