Doom

Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps

Presented By: Tarquin (Rabitldr)

In space no one can hear you scream…and at the convention we’d like you to respect those at the other tables

If you know the movie Aliens this is your game. It’s as near to the movie as you can get in board game form. You can be Huden on your own with a team of grunts you control or a team of 6 working together…or mostly together if one of you is Burke.

Can’t find the game on shelves? Missing an expansion? We’ve got all of them. Play in one session or three, each night it gets harder but there’s bigger reward, more bugs to hunt. The hallway is clear? Wait…I’ve got movement…Hicks is now surrounded by 16 Aliens…

Player Capacity: 1 to 12 (up to 2 tables of 6).
System: Aliens: Another Glorious Day In The Corps.
System knowledge required: None. System will be taught during the session.
Rating: PG. The game is faithful to the movie and has naughty words on the cards.
Seriousness: Moderate, but on the less serious side. (2/6)

Doom

Doom

Presented By: Trevor Smith

Doom is a brutal boardgame of survival in a mars base that has been invaded by deamons and mutants.

This time you have to shut down the generators that are opening random portals filled with monsters.

You will die, that is inevitable. However, will you be able to work together well enough to succeed as well?

Player Capacity: 1 to 3, runs best with 3.
System: Doom Boardgames.
System knowledge required: None. System will be taught during the session.
Rating: PG.
Seriousness: Moderate, but on the less serious side. (2/6)

Robo Rally

Presented By: Tarquin (Rabitldr)

Robo Rally, it’s an old game, program your Bot, run around boards you’ve known that have been around longer than you have… till now…

There’s a new Robo Rally! The rules? Er… we don’t care! New Boards? Oh YES! The Main Program has spent quite a bit of credits so you don’t have to! The Main Program has fought the supply chain and won!

The new version of the game is out. The new rules? They aren’t exactly backward compatible, like trying to use an Apple IIe to play Doom, it would be nice but that’s isn’t happening. The boards though? They work just fine and ALL of them will be available at Conquest for the very first time, (at least that’s what my email this morning says and the delivery is on the way) and at your disposal. With new boards there’s going to be a lot of interest so sign up early!

Player Capacity: 2 to 24+
System: Robo Rally (Old School)
System knowledge required: None. System will be taught during the session.
Rating: G.
Seriousness: Not Very. (1/6)
