What are We Demoing at Gen Con?

Making plans for Gen Con? Be sure to visit us at booth 2535! We’ll be demoing a ton of awesome games, and for the first time we’ll also have them available for purchase! Here’s a sneak peek at what we’re planning:

Tokaido

The journey is more important than the destination with Tokaido! You play a traveler along the east sea road (what Tokaido actually means) in Japan, having wonderful experiences along the way and trying to be the player who has the best time. Tokaido is coming up on its 5th anniversary so it seems like the perfect time to help make some new fans.

 

Catch the Moon

Stack the ladders as tall as you can, and don’t let them fall or you’ll make the moon cry! We’ve demoed this game before and in doing so we’ve learned that this truly is a game for all ages. It’s super easy to learn so definitely come by and play a few rounds.

 

 

We have too many games and not enough table space, so these next four games will be on rotation at one table. Check back as we get closer to Gen Con for a complete schedule of when you can find each game.

 

Men at Work

Men at Work is a fun little dexterity game where you’re building a “work zone” for meeples in tiny little hardhats. Follow the instructions on the cards to add to your work area: a beam, a worker, a worker holding supplies, you never know. Make sure your hard hats don’t fall off, or you’ll lose a safety certificate! It puts a new spin on the term “worker placement game”.

 

Century: New World

Plan B’s final installment of the Century trilogy, fresh from its release at Origins, will be hitting the table at the Active Player Network booth! Come learn all about this worker placement-style game and add to your Century collection.

Azul

The winner of the 2018 Spiel des Jahres award, the 2017 Golden Geek Best Family Game of the Year, and many more, this tile placement game has gorgeous artwork and easy-to-learn gameplay. Azul is as stunning to look at as it is to play. If you don’t know how to play yet, come on by and we’ll show you. 

 

Tuki

It’s a race against your friends to see who can build the shape on the cards first. You use the white blocks to help support the shape of your gray, purple, blue (and yellow, if you’re playing advanced) blocks. Easy to learn but only the truly dedicated can master these shapes!

 

 

The final table at the booth will be dedicated just to card games, and we will have official Bandai staff at the booth to help teach these awesome games that will be rotating throughout the weekend. Just in time for series 7 to drop, we’ll have the very popular Dragon Ball Super card game. We will also have the Naruto Boruto cardgame, as well as the highly anticipated Godzilla Card Game due to release in September. Both of those games use the Chrono Clash game system created by renowned designer Ryan Miller. Whether you’ve played these before or you’re curious about how they work, it’s definitely a fantastic opportunity to learn from the best possible source.

 

 

 That’s it for today’s Gen Con update, active players! Keep checking back as we continue to keep you posted on everything you can look forward to. We will have an official game rotation schedule as the con gets closer, and you can always come visit us at booth 2535 once you’re there to learn more. See you there!

Dragon Ball Super TCG: Draft Box 03

Dragon Ball Super TCG: Draft Box 03

Last week, we got hype for the Magic: the Gathering Core Set 2019 Draft Weekend and this week we are going ham for Dragon Ball Super TCG's Draft Box 03!

Why is drafting awesome?

There are two major challenges when it comes to TCG play. 

  1. Finding other players who are into the same game and have decks ready to go. 
  2. Making sure you have balanced decks at your table. When one player has been collecting for a while, they typically outmatch newer opponents regardless of skill level. 

The best thing about buying a Dragon Ball Super draft box is that you and three of your friends can pool your money for the purchase and dig in together to create four fairly balanced starter decks right away and Bandai provides rules for tournament play that either allow you to award cards as trophies in various ways at the end of your game or keep the decks you drafted. Each box contains 4 foil versions of the same Leader card, so if you don't get the one you want, unfortunately you can't trade with a friend for the one you, but you can, of course, try your luck again with another box.

Aside from the four leader cards, each box includes 12 Colossal Warfare boosters, 12 Themed O2 boosters, a draft rules manual, and 1 sheet. For an example of how to draft cards, see Dragon Ball Super TCG's draft breakdown from Draft 01. Once you've opened all your booster packs and drafted your cards, you can run a 4 way round robin tournament right out of the box. 

Leader cards haven't been announced for this Draft Box yet and we are chomping at the bit to find out who could be lurking in these treasure chests! What leaders do you think we'll see in Draft Box 03!
