Word is Trinity is eccentric, rich, and she likes to trade favors with “resourceful” people. You’re resourceful, right? This is a new sci-fi adventure with all the hallmarks of a combination heist and daredevil stunt—set in my own imagined human future: The Han Cluster. We will use the Savage Worlds system.

Project Dreamscape (W/Creator)
Limited Capacity seats available

Project Dreamscape is a card game for 1-4 players and takes about 30 minutes. Your turn starts by choosing whether or not to take a facedown card, called a Z card--these Z cards are currency in the game, but also count against you when it comes time to tally up the scores. Z cards are used to purchase cards from the Dreamscape, which are then placed in your REM stack. You must choose one of the two abilities on a card to activate when you collect it, but the real fun of the game comes from chaining these abilities together.

Any one of the eight dream abilities in Project Dreamscape, by itself, produces only a minor effect--take a card, flip a card, rearrange some cards, and so on. But with some clever card play, one dream ability can lead to another until you've collected several cards or even cleared the entire Dreamscape. This continues until there are not enough cards to fully refill the Dreamscape after a player’s turn. At that point, the game is over and it's time to score.

Scoring is simple. Just lay out your faceup cards in the order they were stacked, and then find matching abilities that appear on adjacent cards (the orientation of the cards does not affect scoring, but you may wish to rotate the cards to find these chains). Wherever two or more copies of an ability are next to one another, you score points as shown on the score chart. After scoring all of your chains, subtract points equal to the amount of Z cards you have, and that’s your final score.

If there is time and interest, will also teach Oaxaca: Crafts of a Culture.

Dante Lauretta, game designer and principle investigator of NASA's OSIRIS REx space exploration mission, teaches you to play Constellations. In this game, players are stargazers, exploring the night sky and collecting stars to define constellations.

Players compete with each other to strategically collect the right stars, reserve patches of the sky for observation, and explore the universe. Once you have your constellation, add it to the map of the night sky being assembled right in front of you. The closer you get to putting together the actual map of the heavens, the more points you score!

RB8 features a custom draw deck called Rally Cards with random events that happen during a baseball game, as the team manager you must decide when to strategically use them. You have full control of your team. Make the big manger decisions that can influence the game.

RB8 also features player cards with ratings and special abilities, two six-sided dice, special custom pitcher and batter control dice, baseball field board, batter and runner markers, scoreboard with markers, and your dice key cards.

Whether you’re a fan of baseball, board games, or both you’re going to love the feel and excitement of reliving the good old days in RB8 Retro Baseball!

RB8 Retro Baseball is Played over the course of 9 innings in a single game or a best of series. On a turn both Pitcher and Batter will compare their ratings factoring in any special abilities and roll off to see who will get control of the at bat. This is called the “On Deck Phase”. Whoever rolls higher factoring in all special abilities will try to maintain control by rolling their custom Pitcher or Batter die. If they maintain control they will then roll dice and compare the result with their respective key to find out the results of the at bat.

Your Action Cards allow you to do things like vaccinate against disease, use biotechnology, or hire a groom to help you win a trophy. Your Animal Cards are where you decide your matings, and choose which animals you will sell versus keep for breeding. You choose the best animals based on how they look, their phenotype, but phenotype is not a perfect indicator of their DNA. You won’t find out the true genetic value of the animal, or in other words, prove the animal, until you see their offspring. The best offspring are taken to the show, where you can win trophies to build your breeder reputation. Pedigree is played in about 60 minutes, and players perform most actions simultaneously, resulting in a fast pace with minimal player down time.

Pedigree
Limited Capacity seats available

Coming to Kickstarter very soon, Pedigree is a family board game based on actual genetic biology and real-life struggles of animal breeding to produce show ring champions and top-dollar animals. Your Action Cards allow you to do things like vaccinate against disease, use biotechnology, or hire a groom to help you win a trophy. Your Animal Cards are where you decide your matings, and choose which animals you will sell versus keep for breeding. You choose the best animals based on how they look, their phenotype, but phenotype is not a perfect indicator of their DNA. You won’t find out the true genetic value of the animal, or in other words, prove the animal, until you see their offspring. The best offspring are taken to the show, where you can win trophies to build your breeder reputation. Pedigree is played in about 60 minutes, and players perform most actions simultaneously, resulting in a fast pace with minimal player down time.

Kuzushi Seasons w/Creator
Limited Capacity seats available

Based on iconic seasonal flowers found in Japan, Kuzushi Seasons pits 2, 3 or 4 players against each other in a unique game of positional control. Simple rules lead to beautiful complexities in this abstract area control tile placement card game. It's smart, fun, approachable and addictive. If we have enough players, we'll mix in cards from the original Kuzushi to try a 5 or 6 player game on a larger board!

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Dante Lauretta, game designer and principle investigator of NASA's OSIRIS REx space exploration mission, teaches you to play Constellations. In this game, players are stargazers, exploring the night sky and collecting stars to define constellations. They compete to find the right stars to fit the needed pattern -- are B-type stars or F-types required to complete the constellation? Players compete with each other to strategically collect the right stars, reserve patches of the sky for observation, and explore the universe. Once you have your constellation, add it to the map of the night sky being assembled right in front of you. The closer you get to putting together the actual map of the heavens, the more points you score!
