Lab’s Experiment: Five Tribes!
Jul 21 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Lab's Experiment: Five Tribes! @ Games Laboratory | Melbourne | Victoria | Australia

We are continuing our series of board game organised play events.

Crossing into the Land of 1001 Nights, your caravan arrives at the fabled Sultanate of Naqala. The old sultan just died and control of Naqala is up for grabs! The oracles foretold of strangers who would maneuver the Five Tribes to gain influence over the legendary city-state. Will you fulfill the prophecy? Invoke the old Djinns and move the Tribes into position at the right time, and the Sultanate may become yours!

We present to you 5 Tribes!

There’ll be a learn-to-play session at the start from one of our experienced board gamers.
Anyone can play, even if you haven’t tried Five Tribes before!

After learning to play, there’ll be two rounds with random players. At the end of every round, there’ll be a chance to vote for the friendliest and most strategic players, and chances to win copies of Five Tribes! 

Rounds are timed, so even if the game isn’t entirely finished it will end when the time runs out – this is to make sure the event runs on time (don’t worry we will give you plenty of time).

Lab’s Experiment: Majesty!
Aug 4 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Lab's Experiment: Majesty! @ Games Laboratory | Melbourne | Victoria | Australia

We are continuing our series of board game organised play events. This time we play Majesty: For the Realm, a game by Marc Andre (the same dude who made Splendor)!

The crown is up for grabs to whoever can build the richest domain and seize it from their rivals. It’ll take a whole kingdom’s worth of people to accomplish this monumental task. Rally your citizens, grow your power, and reign supreme in Majesty: For the Realm, a game of strategically selecting who you want to work your lands set during the Middle Ages.

There’ll be a learn-to-play session at the start from one of our experienced board gamers.
Anyone can play, even if you haven’t tried Majesty before!

Lab’s Experiment: Sagrada!
Aug 18 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Lab's Experiment: Sagrada! @ Games Laboratory | Melbourne | Victoria | Australia

We are continuing our series of board game organised play events. This time we play a real beauty, Sagrada!

Draft dice and use the tools-of-the-trade in Sagrada to carefully construct your stained glass window masterpiece. Each board has some restrictions on which color or shade (value) of die can be placed there. Dice of the same shade or color may never be placed next to each other. Dice are drafted in player order, with the start player rotating each round, snaking back around after the last player drafts two dice.

There’ll be a learn-to-play session at the start from one of our experienced board gamers.
Anyone can play, even if you haven’t tried Sagrada before!

After learning to play, there’ll be two rounds with random players. At the end of every round, there’ll be a chance to vote for the friendliest and most strategic players, and chances to win copies of Sagrada!
