pic1904505Brought to you by Alan Saunders.

Saturday only

Machinas: Death Races in the Wasteland players race vehicles across the Wasteland in a post-apocalyptic world, searching for Fame and Fortune and more importantly, salvageable parts.

The game features a unique set of mechanics where the players are involved at all times. Unlike other race games where players can drift far to the rear and out of the action, Machinas uses a “pack” mechanic where players are always in the action. Instead of tracking your position on the track the game tracks your position in the “pack”.

Demo games will be run throughout Saturday, where you can either race, or more commonly be involved is a pursuit! Play for one turn or a full game. There is a large variety of vehicles, weapons, defensive measures and car features making every vehicle unique!

Sharp Practice 2

TFL-SHARPII-2TBrought to you by Central Coast Wargaming Club.

Saturday and Sunday

March 1812, Badajoz, Spain
A rider thunders into the besieging camp of the Anglo-Portuguese Army of General Sir Arthur Wellesley with an urgent missive. Captain Sharpe and his Chosen Men, manoeuvring with his newly acquired Light Company, is summoned immediately by The Peer.
Reporting to Sir Arthur’s tent, Sharpe meets a fat, balding and rather pompous old General, by the name of Sir William Fartingsworth, the third man, an envoy to the Spanish forces in the area.
“My wife Sharpe, she’s been kidnapped and I want you to get her back”, Fartingsworth splutters anxiously.
Sir Arthur pipes up now, “Naturally I cannot spare many men for this endeavour Sharpe as I intend to take the fight to the French as soon as I can. I just wish the damned Spanish would hurry along! You’ll take your Rifles and Light Company, and have Lieutenant Horace Macduff’s Flank Company and a single squadron of cavalry for support. You’re to trace the whereabouts of Francesca Fartingsworth and return her here post haste, is that understood?”
“Of course I expect my wife’s dignity and integrity intact Sharpe! She is a woman of noble birth,” Fartingsworth injected, his pudgy face reddening.
“The ransom note we received is from a Major Du Blanco, who leads a force of French and deserters” Wellesley went on, “I expect him and his second in command, a renegade British sergeant, brought to justice swiftly. There are also reports that your wife, Sharpe, and her partisans are lurking in the area. Join up with them if you can. Dismissed.”

Zombicide CoverBrought to you by Frank Sultana and Sven De Braekelei

Saturday and Sunday

“In a mad quest for forbidden knowledge and ultimate power, the necromancers have unleashed the apocalypse upon the living. Zombies have destroyed the King’s armies, and now roam the land, spreading chaos and death. Is it the end? Are we cursed to die, huddled in our homes? It’s a dark time, but not for those with a will. Draw your sword, span your crossbow, and ready your spells! For the few, the brave, it’s time for…ZOMBICIDE!”

Zombicide: Black Plague is a standalone cooperative boardgame for 1 to 6 players that brings the relentless zombie-killing action of Zombicide into a brand new fantasy setting! Players control a party of survivors as they fight to rid the land of an invasion of zombies controlled by the game itself. Survivors find weapons, learn spells, battle zombies, and gain experience. The more experienced they get, the more powerful they become, but the more zombies rise to face them!

On Sunday we intend to run a few participation scenarios for this game. Feel free to sit in for a mission, or just try a few turns out, trying to survive the onslaught of the undead!
