The following games are the conclusion of our Gen Con recap! These games were played at both Pop-Up Gen Con as well as Gen Con Indy. All of these games are in our game library and most can be rented for 2 days!
Emergency Broadcast- Bicycle
In Emergency Broadcast, players act as first responders on a mission to secure resources for the residents of their community. Over three rounds, floodwaters rise becoming more treacherous and leaving less available land and resources. The winner is the player who best meets their rescue objectives and earns the most points after three stormy rounds
Dungeon Decorators-SlugFest Games
Dungeon Decorators is a competitive “light euro” tile-drafting strategy game for 2 to 4 players. Select tiles that give you the right combination of chilling chambers, harrowing hallways and dire decorations, then play goal cards to score points. The player who scores the most points achieves victory by impressing the client and setting them on their path to becoming the next legendary evil!
Flourish- Starling Games
Flourish is a beautiful, card-drafting, garden-building game in which players plan and build the garden of their dreams over the course of the growing season. With delightful imagery, players plan their gardens throughout the game to collect the most points. This easy-to-learn game offers both competitive strategy and co-operative game modes, and a 1-7 player count provides a high level of accessibility and replayability. Flourish isn’t currently available to purchase, but you can try it from our Library!
Galaxy Trucker- Czech Games
In the fast and goofy family game Galaxy Trucker, players begin by simultaneously rummaging through the common warehouse, frantically trying to grab the most useful component tiles to build their spaceship, all in real-time. Once the ships are launched, players encounter dangerous situations while vying for financial opportunities, each hoping to gain the most valuable cargo and finish with as much of their ship still intact as possible. Of course, that’s easier said than done since many hazards will send pieces of your ship, your cargo, and your crew hurling into the depths of space. The goal is to survive the trek, hopefully with at least some of your crew and ship intact, and have at least one credit by the end of the game. (Profit, yay!) Players earn credits by delivering goods, defeating pirates, having the best-looking ship, and reaching their destination before the others.
Godtear is a hex based tabletop skirmish board game for two players. With its dynamic scenarios and pre-assembled, colored miniatures, it’s quick to start but hard to master! Godtear is a scenario driven game. Each scenario has its own rules, but there are common rules that form the basis of all scenarios. Each scenario uses the scoring system below in addition to its unique scenario rules.
In Mountain Goats you work to move your goats to the top of 6 different mountains where they can score points as long as they stay there. You can share spaces with other goats on the way up, but there is only room for one goat at the top of each mountain. If someone else’s goat moves to the mountain top, they will kick you off and you’ll have to start your trek over. Mountain Goats isn’t currently available to purchase, but test play it from our Library!
