Special Gaming Event: Battlestations 2nd Edition

Two obstacles to interstellar flight were solved in the 22nd Century: Hyperdrives to actually get us to other planets, and cloning technology to replace our bodies and brains from backups in the inevitable situation something goes wrong on the trip. Peacetime advancements released the vast resources of a sea of stars like a cosmic piñata. We need capable explorers. The more dangers that present themselves, the more opportunities for lowly travelers to ascend to become true heroes. There’s a lot of emergencies happening on board your starship. Will you be a hero when the time arises?

Battlestations is a tabletop starship simulator – a multi-map board game that simultaneously features ship-action in space AND the events on board the ships involved in the conflicts. It is also a roleplaying game in which your characters grow throughout campaigns, picking up experience points, upgrades, and new abilities.

The game rules are very simple but they allow for complex RPG-like imaginative choices like teleporting to an enemy ship, hacking their helm controls and steering their ship towards a black hole before ejecting yourself out the air lock. Inside the box is an infinity of alien worlds to explore, rickety spacecrafts to upgrade, and a rowdy crew of lifelong comrades to adventure with.

One player takes on the role of “the enemy”, and works against the other players who are cooperating with each other.

Special gaming event: Twilight of the Gods

In Twilight of the Gods you and your friends will each assume the role of a deity from myth and legend, and battle to the death to see who is the strongest god, using human armies, mystical beasts, and heroes of renown from both past and future.

These deities span multiple pantheons, from numerous civilizations, and each favors a particular method of strategy – Aggression, Negotiation, Mysticism, or Sanctuary – which influences how your battle will play out. Every deity also possesses a special, once per game power that can be used to further the tide of battle in your favor, or come back from what seems like overwhelming defeat, so never count an opponent out until they draw their last card.

Now go forth and let none stand in your way!

Special gaming event: Nevermore & Specters of Nevermore

Pass with care…

Many are the paths to power: brute force, subtle deception, cunning trickery. You hold the cards…but you can’t keep them all. What will you decide to collect for personal gain? And what are you willing to give up in order to destroy? The Ravens are gathering, many of whom used to be rivals. Will you rise to power or simply be…nevermore.

Nevermore 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?

Summon the Never–Were. The lure of untold mystic power consumes you. Delving ever deeper into your fascination with Plutonian shores, you have summoned into service the eerie and powerful specters of Poe’s gothic horror characters. Armed with the powers of the “Never–Were”, you intend to reign supreme, forevermore.

Specters of Nevermore, an expansion for the casual card-drafting game Nevermore, introduces twelve unique player characters based on the literary characters in Poe’s works: Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether, The Imp of the Perverse, Dupin, Lenore and more. Each offers cool abilities for players, one for their human form and a second for their raven form, should they be turned into such. Characters are chosen in a draft, allowing players to select a character best suited to their play style.
