SAT BOARD GAMES

 

ROLL FOR THE GALAXY

Event #: SAT-BG-1 GM: Eric Guttag
Event Description: Roll for the Galaxy is a reimplementation of the classic sci-fi themed phase/action selection game, Race for the Galaxy. In Roll for the Galaxy, players build a tableau of game tiles representing their galactic empire. Over several game rounds, each player creates their galactic empire using custom dice (representing their workers) to explore new game tiles, settle worlds and build developments, produce goods on settled worlds, and ship those goods for Galactic Credits and/or Victory Point chips. Players start each round by secretly rolling dice in their cup behind a screen and then allocating those rolled dice (based on the icon showing on top) under the corresponding icon on a phase strip. Each player also uses one of those rolled dice to select one of the five phases. After all players reveal their dice allocation, the selected phases are resolved with used dice returned to the Citizenry space, and unused dice returned to the player’s cup. Players then manage their empires, including spending Galactic Credits ($) to recruit dice from the Citizenry space to roll for the next round. The player who best manages his/her dice to create the greatest galactic empire of combined total points from placed worlds, developments, and Victory Point chips wins. Beginners and experienced players are welcome!

NEW FRONTIERS

Event #: SAT-BG-2 GM: Eric Guttag
Event Description: New Frontiers combines the Puerto Rico action selection mechanic with other features of Race for the Galaxy and Roll for the Galaxy to build a galactic civilization representing Worlds, as well as Developments creating special abilities. Each player starts with an Empire mat with a different Home World on each side, one side of which selected to play face up. Each round players (in turn order determined by position of their priority disk) each select 1 of 7 different action tiles with the player selecting the action tile also getting a particular bonus. The last round of the game occurs when: (a) the Development area of any player’s Empire mat has 10 or more spaces covered; (b) the outside perimeter of any player’s Empire mat has more 7 Settled Worlds (including their home World); (c) the number of colonists left in supply is 4 or fewer; or (d) the initial pool of VP chips is emptied. The player who creates the galactic empire having the most points from placed world and development cards, plus Victory Point chips wins. EXPERIENCED PLAYERS ONLY! (Experience with Race for the Galaxy and/or Roll for the Galaxy qualifies as EXPERIENCED PLAYER.) KNOWLEDGE OF RULES PRESUMED!

Descent Legends of the Dark

Event #: SAT-BG-7 GM: Floyd Resler
Event Description: Terrinoth is in peril. The demon-tainted Uthuk Y'llan barbarians stalk the realm and the undead servants of Waiqar the Undying venture beyond their borders for the first time in memory. The leaders of Terrinoth are divided and fractious, unable to unite against these common threats. And in the northern barony of Forthyn, the stage is set for the next great confrontation between Terrinoth and the forces of darkness...

For years, your journeys have taken you across the fantasy realm of Terrinoth, venturing into dark forests, shadowy cities, ancient crypts, and misty swamps — but your true legend is about to begin.

We'll be playing the first adventure and possibly a second one depending on time.
