What can I say about the game, The Resistance?!? It’s a lot of fun, even if it does pit friend against friend, as distrust and dishonesty infiltrate each round, so that by the end of the game, you have no idea who is who and all you really know is that you can trust no one…!
At the beginning of the game, character cards are secretly dealt out.
The game, Relic Runners, is all about competitive exploring in the jungle. Each explorer attempts to lay out the most strategic paths in order to travel around the board, visit temples and shrines, as well as, collect relics.
The mechanic is pretty simple: move once and take an action. The movements can quickly be increased by laying paths. Once a path has been laid out, then it can be used for free movements in the future.
Cardboard Carnage was truly excited to have our very first guest host, Dominic G., offer to teach the trading card game, Kaijudo to gamers at our last Tabletop University event!!! Dominic came prepared to teach and run a free tournament that night. The turnout was beyond AMAZING! And, Dominic handled it like a pro!
The good news: a good-sized group of gamers joined together and battled it out for cool prizes.
The submarine was SINKING…! Our crew, of somewhat sober gnomes, was on the job trying to save the vessel by putting out fires, pumping water, unblocking hatches, and fixing any number of things that could, and did, go wrong with the submarine’s systems. In the cooperative game, Red November, minutes mean everything and it’s important not to drink too much grog…

Our regular reporter for our Thursday night game sessions wasn’t with us this week, so I volunteered to help keep track of the information and create a report on the results of the gaming session. I must forewarn you, this will be no where as entertaining , detailed, or informative as what Candace is able to provide, but I’ll give it my best shot!!
This week we played two sessions of Formula D.
For our latest edition of Tabletop University, a group of adventurers started out the night trying to survive the Forbidden Island by gathering treasures, shoring up (un-flooding) location tiles, and trying to keep their heads above water… The island has been cursed by the Archeans in order to keep their treasures hidden. Legend tells us that their treasures have the ability to control the Earth’s elements of fire, wind, water, and earth.
