BOARD GAMING

The Board Game Library will be in attendance at CoastCon with plenty of games for everyone to enjoy! There will also be tournaments sponsored by Envoy Games; these are detailed below. And of course, we will have the great game giveaway on Sunday. If you borrow certain games and play them, you have a chance to go home with them! Games supplied by Envoy Games!

Friday 7PM – 10PM – 16 players, 4 tables
The 2020 Mississippi State Diamonds Championship

This Stronghold game by Mike Fitzgerald is a trick-taking card game in which players collect Diamonds – not cards bearing that suit, mind you, but rather actual “Diamond Crystals”. What makes the game of Diamonds different from other trick-taking card games is that when you cannot follow suit you get a “Suit Action” based on what suit you do play. Suit Actions are also taken by the winner of each trick, as well as at the end of a full Round of play. Whoever has the most points in Diamond Crystals at the end of the game wins! The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon (as well as a free badge to CharCon)!

Friday 9PM – 12AM – 16 players, 4 tables
The 2020 Mississippi State Coup Championship

You are head of a family in an Italian city-state, a city run by a weak and corrupt court. You need to manipulate, bluff and bribe your way to power. Your object is to destroy the influence of all the other families, forcing them into exile. Only one family will survive… In Coup, you want to be the last player with influence in the game, with influence being represented by face-down character cards in your playing area. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon (as well as a free badge to CharCon)!

Saturday 10AM – 1PM – 16 players, 4 tables
The 2020 Mississippi State Wordsy Championship

Wordsy is a streamlined re-implementation of Prolix, a word game from 2010. Each round, players study the 8 letters (always consonants) on the board in real time. The first player to write down a word flips a 30-second timer. That player is now the fastest player, and every other player now has 30 seconds to write down their word. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon (as well as a free badge to CharCon)!

Saturday 12PM – 3PM – 16 players, 4 tables
The 2020 Mississippi State ICECOOL Championship

A flicking game in which each round one of the players takes the role of the Hall Monitor – his aim will be to catch each other penguin and get points for that. The others will try to run through several doors, thus gaining fish (that give them points) on their way. When either the Hall Monitor has caught each other penguin once or any of the others has gone through all 3 doors that have fish on them, the round is over. After each player is the Hall Monitor once, whoever has the most points on their fish cards wins. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon (as well as a free badge to CharCon)!

Saturday 2PM – 5PM – 12 players, 4 tables
The 2020 Mississippi State SHOBU Championship

A beautifully crafted 2-player abstract strategy game from Smirk & Laughter. Your turn is in two parts. First, a player may move one of their stones up to two spaces in any direction, including diagonally, in what is called a passive (or set up) move. Second, they take a more aggressive move, which must be the same direction and number of spaces as the first move. It is this second move that allows you to push stones across the board – or off the board’s edge. Remove all four of your opponent’s stones from just one of the four boards to win. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon (as well as a free badge to CharCon)!

Saturday 4PM – 7PM – 12 players, 4 tables
The 2020 Mississippi State Pyramid Poker Championship

Each player takes fifteen blocks and turns the blocks so that only they see what’s on them. They take turns placing the blocks into a two-dimensional pyramid-shaped structure, again seeing only their blocks, then they take turns removing any one block from the pyramid and placing it into one of three poker hands that they’re constructing. Each poker hand is competing against the one opposite it that’s being built by the opponent. Once all the blocks have been removed, the player who wins two or three of the poker hands wins! The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon (as well as a free badge to CharCon)!

Saturday 7PM – 10PM – 16 players, 4 tables
The 2020 Mississippi State New York Slice Championship

Each player slices pizzas into portions, giving their opponents first choice, while they take the leftovers. There are a dozen kinds of pizza to work with, from veggie to hawaiian to meat lover’s, and each player decides if they want to eat or keep some of the slices, building the best collection of pizzas possible! The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon (as well as a free badge to CharCon)!

Saturday 9PM – 12AM – 16 players, 4 tables
The 2020 Mississippi State Skull King Championship

Brent Beck’s Skull King is a trick-taking game similar to Oh Hell!, Wizard and Spades, with players needing to state how many tricks they think they’ll win each round. Pirates and other special cards add to the strategy. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon (as well as a free badge to CharCon)!

Sunday 10AM – 1PM – 16 players, 4 tables
The 2020 Mississippi State Dimension Championship

Dimension is a fast-paced, innovative puzzle game that takes place in three dimensions with 60 colorful spheres. All of the players play at the same time. Everybody tries to position the spheres on their trays to earn as many points as possible. The task cards indicate how the spheres must be placed to earn points. Complete these tasks while racing against the timer. You get a point for each sphere you use and a bonus token for using all five colors, but you lose two points for each task card you don’t follow correctly. Prove to your opponents that you are the master of multi-dimensional thinking! The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon (as well as a free badge to CharCon)!
