Announcing the 2010 CharCon Premier Board Game Tournament line up!
Two years ago we started this event and in a very short time it has become very popular. In it we feature a selection of new games from a variety of our sponsors. Participants learn all of the games and take part in a light hearted competitive tournament. We recognize overall winners & runners up for each individual game, plus we also recognize the overall top performers for the entire event.
Once again, every participant in this event will receive at least 1 board game and in years past, many participants have won whole stacks of games!
So, with all of that said I am thrilled to announce this years line up of games!
The Adventurers by Alderac Entertainment Group
The Adventurers features a fast-paced thrilling run through the Temple of Chac, the Mayan rain god. As your intrepid adventurers delve through the ruins, they will face deadly traps guarding the ancient relics they prize.
Charon Inc. by Gryphon Games
In the year 2288, off-world mining is now controlled by a few mega-corporations. It is no longer just people or nations that are subject to exploitation, but entire planets and moons. As the CEO of one of these mega-corporations, in Charon, Inc. you will vie against CEOs of other corporations as you exploit the planetís resources and colonize Charon, the largest moon of the dwarf planet Pluto.
You will stake claims to the various mining regions of Charon, acquire resources for building facilities, use special actions (fair and unfair) to gain advantages over other CEOs and build your empire to achieve victory in this fast-paced game of planetary domination!
Egizia by Rio Grande Games
The players are builders in the Ancient Egypt, competing to get the most fame building different monuments requested by the Pharaoh (the Sphinx, the Obelisk, the Temple and the Pyramid).
Founding Fathers by Jolly Roger Games
Founding Fathers is a board/card game for 2-5 players by Jason Mathews and Christian Leonhard, the designers of 1960. In Founding Fathers, players seek to be the man remembered for the creation of the United States constitution via skillful play of state delegations, debate, and the personalities of the attending delegates. Each delegate has his own special power as well as a factional alliance--federalist, anti-federalist, etc.
*NOTE: Meet the designers of Founding Fathers at CharCon this year!
Road Kill Rally by ZMAN Games
2035 - The Road-Kill Rally becomes a worldwide phenomenon, attracting contestants from throughout the world. Ratings exceed three billion for the Rally Cup Finals, making it the most watched spectacle in human history.
As a driver in the Road-Kill Rally, you are racing against opponents eager to destroy you with guns, rockets and flame throwers. But the big points come from scoring pedestrians: running them over or blasting them out of the road. After all, you have three billion viewers to satisfy.
Think of this as Car Wars meets Death Race 2000.
