Living Card Game Day!

This coming Saturday (October 25th) is Living Card Game Day at Snake Eyes Gaming. Come in and try a demonstration of any of a number of Living Card Games or bring in your favorite LCG and run demos for others.

The following Living Card Games are guaranteed to be on hand for demos and games: Lord of the Rings, Doomtown Reloaded, Call of Cthulu, and Star Wars. In addition, there may also be demos of the brand new Warhammer 40,000 LCG Conquest.

In the Lord of the Rings LCG up to four players each control three valiant heroes (such as Legolas, Gimli, Aragorn, Elrond, Haldir, Celeborn, Glorfindel, and more) and together they attempt to complete a quest. The game focuses on quest lines (each of which is a series of thematically linked quests) and captures the essence of the Lord of the Rings through use of simple to learn/play yet still elegant mechanics. Saturday's demos will focus on the exploration of Khazad-dûm. During the three adventures in the Khazad-dûm cycle the players will first try to pass through the long dark of Moria unnoticed by orc patrols, then use the Book of Marzabul to locate Balin's missing expedition, and finally attempt to escape Moria amidst a seemingly endless tide of orcs and something darker and worse.

Doomtown Reloaded is the story of the struggle for the
town of Gomorra, California in the weird west. It's the weird west because not only does it have the lawmen (Law Dogs) and outlaws (the Sloan Gang) that you're familair with; Doomtwon also has its fair share of wizards (Hucksters), Mad Scientists (exactly what you'd expect them to be called), undead (harrowed), and all sorts of other unusual things. In Doomtown Reloaded 2-4 players go head to head to take control of the the town. Each player chooses an Outfit, recruits dudes to their cause, and builds deeds right on the Town square. As the game progresses their will inevitably conflicts as Dudes call each other out leading to shootouts (and plenty of people going to Boot Hill).

The characters, starships, and situations of the original Star Wars trilogy come to life in Star Wars, a head-to-head Living Card Game of tactical combat and strategic planning that allows two players to wage cinematic combats between the light and dark sides of the Force.
Command such legendary characters as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia Organa, Boba Fett, and Darth Vader. Launch strategic assaults against your opponent’s objectives. Tempt fate in thrilling edge battles. Seek to make an ally of the Force or master its power for your own purposes.

In Call of Cthulhu players take the roles of investigators, villains, and unspeakable horrors inspired by the dark mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. Agency detectives, Miskatonic University students and faculty, and the members of the mysterious Syndicate all join the fight against otherworldly beings including
Cthulhu, Hastur, Yog-Sothoth, and Shub Niggurath. Call of Cthulhu is 2-player, customizable dueling game in which players command both human and monster factions. As a Living Card Game, hundreds of additional cards are available for all seven factions and Saturday's demonstrations will contain a great cross section of cards from later sets and expansions.

There is no set schedule for what time of the day each of the games described above will be demonstrated. Demonstrations will be running from 2:00pm onward as we have people interested in trying each of the games. No matter what type of setting or mechanics you favor, one of these games has something for you!
