Kells (Prototype)
May 29, 2021, 10 a.m.

The Book of Kells, a (~)1st century illuminated manuscript of the Latin gospels, is one of the most extraordinary works of art in the Western religious tradition. In Kells, players represent different orders of monks working to fortify Kells and complete as much of the Book of Kells as possible before the city is overrun by the marauding Vikings. The order that contributes most to the completion of the manuscript, while also slowing down the Vikings' progress, will win the honour of carrying the Book of Kells to the people of Ireland, thus spreading hope in a time of fear. Kells is a mid-weight, Euro-style dice worker placement and resource management game. At the beginning of a round, each player rolls four dice (representing their monks). On their turn, a player will place a monk in one of the Work Areas surrounding the board, pay a food cost, and take a variety of actions. But each Work Area will have different requirements: in one Work Area, players may have to place dice of increasing value, in others of they may have to place dice of lesser value, equal value, use dice of an odd or even value, and so on. Each Work Area corresponds to a certain action, such as harvesting the forest berries needed to make different varieties of ink, quarrying stone to build temporary fortifications around Kells, mining crystals that will improve the quality of the Book's lustrous illustrations, earning special abilities by visiting the monastery shrines, and, of course, inking pages in the Book of Kells itself. But beware; every round, the Viking ships move closer: will your order complete the Book before they reach the city gates? **NB: Kells is a prototype game in development by a local (Edmonton) designer.** Will be played on Tabletopia

Cartographers
May 29, 2021, 1 p.m.

3 - 8 Players - TableTopia Queen Gimnax has ordered the reclamation of the northern lands. As a cartographer in her service, you are sent to map this territory, claiming it for the Kingdom of Nalos. Through official edicts, the queen announces which lands she prizes most, and you will increase your reputation by meeting her demands. But you are not alone in this wilderness. The Dragul contest your claims with their outposts, so you must draw your lines carefully to reduce their influence. Reclaim the greatest share of the queen’s desired lands and you will be declared the greatest cartographer in the kingdom. In Cartographers, players compete to earn the most reputation stars by the time four seasons have passed. Each season, players draw on their map sheets and earn reputation by carrying out the queen's edicts before the season is over. The player with the most reputation stars at the end of winter wins!

Regeneration (Prototype)
May 29, 2021, 4 p.m.

After years of refinement, the City's Artificial Intelligence had finally achieved peak efficiency. Those fortunate to live within the AI's domain enjoyed a life almost entirely free from care. Citizens began harnessing the AI's powerful technology to transcend their material limitations, creating powerful implants to transform their bodies and minds into something more than human. But one day, the AI's memory banks were mysteriously wiped clean. Now, factions of mistrustful survivors have banded together to locate the emergency backup programs needed to restore the AI's memory. The faction best able to recode the AI to its specifications will take control of the City, and return their society to its Golden Age... Regeneration is a competitive, mid-weight, worker- and tile-placement game featuring upgradeable workers, action bidding, and a unique hexagonal puzzle that should appeal to fans of thematic Euros. NB: Regeneration is a prototype of a game in development by a local designer. Will be played on Tabletopia https://jaredmcgeough.wixsite.com/asegames/regeneration
