Here Be Books & Games

Come play games with us every Wednesday at Here Be Books & Games.

We open at 1pm, so anytime you can make it after that is great. There are oodles of games in our Game Library, so we'll have no shortage of games to play.

I'm hoping we can get some Euro strategy games on the table, but we're open to almost anything. It'd be cool if we could get some Legacy games going, too. What do you want to play?

Let's make this a weekly thing.

Admission: $3, waived with game purchase.

Tim is going to run a game of Elder Sign. Same Cthulhu theme as Arkham Horror and Eldritch Horror, only with dice and a third of the playing time.

Elder Sign is a fast-paced, cooperative dice game of supernatural intrigue for one to eight players by Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson, the designers of Arkham Horror. Players take the roles of investigators racing against time to stave off the imminent return of the Ancient One. Armed with tools, allies, and occult knowledge, investigators must put their sanity and stamina to the test as they adventure to locate Elder Signs, the eldritch symbols used to seal away the Ancient Ones and win the game.

To locate Elder Signs, investigators must successfully endure Adventures within the museum and its environs. A countdown mechanism makes an Ancient One appear if the investigators are not quick enough. The investigators must then battle the Ancient One. A clever and thematic dice mechanism pits their exploration against monsters and the sheer difficulty of staying sane and healthy, all within the standard game duration of one to two hours.

Please RSVP to save your spot.
Admission is free with Game Night ($7.50).

Play Elder Sign at Game Night

Tina's going to run a game of Concordia at Game Night. If you've never played this excellent Euro game, now's your chance. If you have played before, then we can try one of the expansion boards. We just got Aegyptus/Crete, but also have the others, too, plus the Salsa expansion!

Here's a short description of the game:
Concordia is a peaceful strategy game of economic development in Roman times for 2-5 players aged 13 and up. Instead of looking to the luck of dice or cards, players must rely on their strategic abilities. Be sure to watch your rivals to determine which goals they are pursuing and where you can outpace them!

In the Concordia base game, colonists are sent out from Rome to settle down in cities that produce bricks, wheat, tools, wine, and cloth. Each player starts with an identical set of cards and acquires more cards during the game. These cards serve two purposes:
1. They allow a player to choose actions during the game.
2. They serve as victory point multipliers at the end of the game.

Concordia is a Euro strategy game, so expect to do some planning - it often takes several turns to accomplish a goal. It's also important to watch what your opponents are doing, because it can affect your own plans.

Every game is different, not only because of the sequence of new cards on sale, but also due to the varied city setup. A Salsa Expansion that adds a new good - salt - and Forum tiles that provide special abilities and several game board expansions provide even more replayability.

Tina loves it! So you're in for great time!
