About the event

On Unboxing Thursdays we open, learn and play Nemesis & Walls of York.

Nemesis:

Playing Nemesis will take you into the heart of sci-fi survival horror in all its terror. A soldier fires blindly down a corridor, trying to stop the alien advance. Scientist races to find a solution in their makeshift lab. A traitor steals the last escape pod at the very last moment. Intruders you meet on the ship are not only reacting to the noise you make but also evolving as time goes by. The longer the game takes, the stronger they become. During the game, you control one of the crew members with a unique set of skills, a personal deck of cards, and individual starting equipment. These heroes cover all your basic SF horror needs. For example, the scientist is great with computers and research but will have a hard time in combat. The soldier, on the other hand...

Nemesis is a semi-cooperative game in which you and your crewmates must survive on a ship infested with hostile organisms. To win the game, you have to complete one of the two objectives dealt to you at the start of the game and get back to Earth in one piece. You will find many obstacles on your way: swarms of Intruders (the name given to the alien organisms by the ship AI), the poor physical condition of the ship, agendas held by your fellow players, and sometimes just cruel fate.

The gameplay of Nemesis is designed to be full of climactic moments which, hopefully, you will find rewarding even when your best plans are ruined and your character meets a terrible fate.

Walls of York:

The city of York is being built. Many buildings have already been completed, but without a protective outer wall to defend against the Viking raids, the city is bound to be pillaged and destroyed. The king has summoned his best architects to design new defensive walls for the city, but only one design will be used. That architect will be hailed as the greatest architect in all the land.

In Walls of York, players must use plastic wall pieces to construct a defensive barrier around the buildings on their city map. Each turn, a player rolls the building die, which dictates which types of walls are to be used. The players must enclose their city, including the required buildings from the King's decree — but players must beware for the Vikings will come and lay waste at the end of the first age, forcing players to build their walls anew in the second age. The player with the most coins at the end of the second age wins.
