Play More (And Unreleased) Games In The G&S Tabletop Games Lounge At SDCC

In case you haven’t heard, we’re doing our annual activation again for San Diego  – this time, we’ll be hanging out at the Marina Terrace of the Marriott Marquis & Marina. Our tabletop lounge will be stocked full of awesome games and we’ll even have some exciting demos of yet-to-be-released games for you to get your hands on.  And no, you don’t need a convention pass to get in on the fun!

Need to know what’s happening when so you can plan your schedule? Fine by us! Here’s the schedule of special game demos that will be happening in the lounge:

THURSDAY JULY 20, 1PM – 3PM: DROPMIX FROM HARMONIX AND HASBRO

DropMix_Board

This unique hybrid game, taking cards from the world of analog gaming and combining it with a console to synthesize music is a highly unique experience. Developed by Harmonix (the company who developed the Rock Band franchise) and Hasbro, this revolutionary gaming experience lets players create a custom mix in real time as the console hooks into a phone or tablet through a free app. Each card adds something new into the mix, be it vocals, bass, and drums. You’ll want to give it a try before the game fully releases later this year.

THURSDAY JULY 20 1PM – 5PM: SCOTT PILGRIM’S PRECIOUS LITTLE CARD GAME BY RENEGADE GAMES STUDIO

Scott Pilgrim

Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Card Game is a deck-building game that challenges you to grow up and prepare for your finest hour. Players assume the roles of their favorite characters in the Scott Pilgrim universe, each of whom comes with a unique starting deck. Innovative double-sided cards let you decide whether to solve your problems with hard work and empathy, or whether to embrace the unpredictable world of gratuitous video game violence. Defeating the Evil Ex and collecting Power-Ups will help players inch their way towards victory.

THURSDAY JULY 20 3PM – 4PM:  OUTPOST SIBERIA FROM IDW GAMES

pic3547435

Designed by the Dead of Winter co-creator Jon Gilmour and Daryl Andrews, this cooperative game is played with a deck of cards. You and your team were sent to investigate anomalous activities but a super storm has shifted this investigation into a life-or-death survival situation.

It’s an immersive and tense experience, where you’ve got to deal with untamable weather and relentless beasts while rationing supplies and managing much-needed tools.

FRIDAY JULY 21, 3PM – 4PM: LEGEND OF KORRA: PRO-BENDING ARENA FROM IDW

korra-board-game

This two player game pits the Future Industries Fire Ferrets against The White Falls Wolfbat in water, earth, and fire bending battles. Like in the show, your goal is to knock your opponents out of the ring or advance forward on the platform.  Bring your own old-timey color commentator so they can call it when you knock your opponent about like a jalopy on a gravel road (or a cabbage cart on a country trail).

FRIDAY JULY 21 & SATURDAY JULY 22, NOON – 3PM: THE THING: INFECTION AT OUTPOST 31 FROM USAOPOLY

TheThing-3dbt-_cropped_1024x1024

This tabletop adaptation of the cult-classic John Carpenter sci-fi work is a hidden-identity game. At Outpost 31 it seems that a hostile extraterrestrial being, with intentions to assimilate the human race, has infiltrated and morphed itself into a perfect imitation of one of the outpost’s crew.

It’s a race to discover who on the team has been infected before it’s too late, for both the crew, and humanity. Expect a high-tension, 4-8 player experience. This game will be releasing in October of this year, but you can get your hands on it early in our lounge.

FRIDAY JULY 21 & SATURDAY JULY 22, 3PM – 5PM: VALERIAN: THE ALPHA MISSIONS FROM ULTRA PRO

apr178031__65992.1495036300

Designed by Ryan Miller, this game is an analog interpretation of Luc Besson’s film adaptation the sci-fi comic book by the same name.  Despite being a franchise-based game, it does not seek to recreate the story of the movie. Players must cooperate in order to evade enemies and finish their target objectives before being captured. The adventure unfolds through each turn on a tile map, which means that the mission can dramatically change every game with several unique configurations. You can get a taste of the game (and hints of the movie) over the con weekend with preview demos.

FRIDAY JULY 21 & SATURDAY JULY 22, 3PM – 5PM: ASCENSION:  DECKBUILDING GAME FROM ULTRA PRO

pic2382123

Developed by a former professional Magic: The Gathering players, this furious deckbuilding game is one where players try to gather Runes and defeat monsters to earn Honour Points. It’s fun, fast-paced, and much-lauded, having won numerous awards including the 2010 Origin Award for 2010’s Best Card Game.  If you like how the game plays, have a peek at Ascension: Dawn of Champions which, with the core game, will be in the tabletop game lounge. Dawn of Champions is both a standalone game using the same mechanics as the core game and is also a compatible expansion, allowing you to grow the 4 player game into a 6 player game.

FRIDAY JULY 21 & SATURDAY JULY 22, 3PM – 5PM: PASS THE PANDAS FROM ULTRA PRO

passthepandas

In this quick-playing, family-friendly, dice rolling game, your goal is to get rid of all your dice by rolling water (which evaporates the dice), pandas (which you pass to other players) or bamboo (which you need to roll as much of as the previous player, lest you end up with some of their dice.) A delightfully simple game, you’ll be pressing your luck faster than a panda eating bamboo.
