With the start of a new year we want to expand our board game sessions! We’re starting a new series of organised play events:
The Games Laboratory Monthly Challenge
This month we will be playing Century: Spice Road, Splendor, and Traders of Osaka!
Century: Spice Road is the first part of the Century game saga, players are caravan leaders who travel the famed silk road to deliver spices to the far reaches of the continent for fame and glory.
In Splendor you play as gem merchants in the renaissance, securing the best mines, traders, and noble clients to grow their wealth. The game itself has a simple, victory point based strategy. Players use their resources (gems) to buy locations, and the player with the most points wins.
In Traders of Osaka players are merchants who are attempting to ship four different types of cargo from Osaka to Edo. Players affect how quickly or slowly the ships move and can trigger pirate raids that may cost their opponents their goods.
There will not be a learn to play session for these events. We expect all players to be familiar with the rules for all games. Luckily, all the games are available in our Board Game Library!
You will play 3 Rounds, one of each game. The rounds are timed depending on the games of the month, it can go from 40~60 minutes. Even if your game isn’t entirely finished it will end when the time runs out.
You will get 3 points for coming in 1st and 1 point for 2nd place on your respective table. At the end of the event we will give Store Credit prizes as awards to 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place based on the points you got for each round.
Plus, during the event all players will have a 10% discount on the featured games!
Round 1 – 12:00 pm
Round 2 – 1:00 pm
Round 3 – 3:00 pm
Approximate Finish Time – 4:00 pm
We hope to see you all here Saturday February 3rd !
Bring your friends!
