November 24th Games

Postby DrFaust » Thu Nov 19, 2009 7:37 pm

Heads up, everyone driving into downtown or planning to eat out before board games this Tuesday. Rice High's Stunt Nite is on at the Flynn the same night, so it'll be more challenging than usual to find a parking spot or seat at anything fancier than Ahli-Baba's.

I can demo 'Megacorps' on the 24th or I can delay it until the Dec 1.

Any preferences?

Brennan, I suspect that Tues will be a low turnout... there's a lot of people leaving town, and with the stuntnight shenanigans, there may be even less. I don't know what kind of numbers you need for the game. what's it about?

I might delay till next week. Depends on how many people are interested in playing and if the game has arrived or not.

The description is below.

MegaCorps is a game of economic domination. You control a MegaCorp — one of the six enormous conglomerates that dominate economic and political life in the mid-21st Century. You control industries, manipulate governments like puppets, and even wage war to open new markets. You win by making more money than the other MegaCorps.

A player chooses industries in countries, hoping for big payouts by having less competition in the industry. But if you own an industry and want to build the same industry in another country you will need to get permission. Of course, you can try to take over the country first then build in there, using the force of countries you own and mercenaries you have or with those you can persuade allies to contribute.

The type of government a country is can also have an effect on what you buy (or what you keep!). Kleptocracies can steal ownership of your industry. Dictatorships can nationalize an industry to shut you out. Democracies can buy you out.

I'll be hauling Arkham Horror along, 'cause Matt Miller asked me to. Hope he decides to drop by. :)

We had a blast last night with Arkham Horror with a full complement of eight investigators. I wrote up some thoughts on the session at my blog, but wanted to say here it was an amazing session. We lost in the end, as one does against eldritch things from beyond time and space, but it was a roller coaster of a ride getting there.
