About the event
Due to popular demand, we will now be teaching three games on Wednesdays.
This Wednesday we will be playing The Chocolate Factory, Narcos & Elysium
The Chocolate Factory: 7.1
Set in the early 20th century of entrepreneurs and chocolatiers experimenting with new ways to create and market chocolates, YOU are assigned the task of the chief chocolate maker! Chocolate Factory is a euro game of literal factory building and moving (using a pushable conveyer belt component) chocolates you must complete the largest number of chocolates required by retailers for the best value. The game also features wooden chocolate pieces and a movable conveyer belt making the physicality blended with euro mechanics a unique experience.
Players are each given a starting player board which will have two Factory parts that apply to a physical conveyer belt. The conveyer belt part of the player board contains a long slot with an empty region in which to push square tiles along. The tiles will house the chocolate pieces players will manipulate throughout the game.
During the game players will initially draft new factory parts (to add to their player board) and specialists (one-time use cards with special powers).
Then each player will “push” three times cocoa into their machines. During each “push” players will be able to use fuel and their factory parts to manipulate their Chocolate pieces. Careful consideration will be required for the spatial element of the game as Chocolate pieces can only be manipulated during a push by the Factory part that is adjacent to their tile.
Players score points by creating chocolates for public and personal objectives. The player with the most points at the end wins.
Narcos: The Board Game, which is based on the television series Narcos, puts players in the roles of the series' most powerful characters and factions as they rewrite the story behind the rise and fall of El Patrón. One person acts as El Patrón, managing a growing narcotics empire while trying to keep their location on the board a secret. The remaining players lead the Hunter factions: the DEA, Policía Nacional de Colombia, Cali Cartel, and the guerrilla extremist group. These seemingly disparate groups are united in their common interest to discover the hidden position of El Patrón, sharing information and discussing strategies. If the El Patrón player manages to complete their secret objectives without being captured by the Hunters, they win. However, if the Hunters are able to uncover El Patrón's location, they succeed in their mission and win.
Mythic Greece. As an upstart demigod, you want to earn the favor of the Olympians and become a figure of legend yourself. Gather heroes and powerful artifacts, please the gods and bear their power to write your own epic tale.
Let your allies achieve their destiny and enter the Elysium, home of the glorious and the brave. Once the stories are written, only one demigod will be chosen to stand at the side of Zeus.
Elysium is a game of set collecting and combinations in which players recruit cards representing heroes, items, powers, and gods. These cards have many different powers and you can create powerful combinations to earn gold (the help of the gods) and victory points (the favor of the gods). Each card belongs to one of the eight Olympian gods (a family), and shows a level (1 to 3).
During the five turns of the game, players will try to transfer their cards to the Elysium and write their own Legends, which are series of cards from the same family or from different families of the same level. The more epic the Legends, the more favor from the gods they’ll earn. But as they go to Elysium, most cards lose their power and players will therefore have to renounce some of their combinations!
A game of balance and opportunity with simple action, but constant dilemmas and complex strategies.
Come join us on Wednesday, July 12th @ 6:00 pm to learn any of these games for Workshop Wednesday. See ya soon!
