Participants playing a board game at the Sunrise ComicConBoard Gaming

  • CRAWL: Board Game Meetups will be hosting 3 titles starting each hour on the hour including:
    •  Deep Sea Adventure : 
      Players: 2 - 6
      Length: 30 - 40 mins
      Deep Sea Adventure is a simple push your luck game. Players dive deeper and deeper into the ocean to collect  bigger and bigger treasures. The more treasures you have the slower you move and more oxygen you use on your turn. But here's the catch, all players share the same oxygen tank making for some tough exiting decisions of when to play it safe, or push for a bigger payoff.

    • Coup : 
       
      Players: 2-6 
      Length: 15-30 minutes
      Coup is a social deduction game where players are each given 2 role cards that are kept hidden. On their turn they'll perform an action claiming to be one of the roles whether its true or not. Other players then may decide to challenge that player if they're being truthful or not ,eliminating a card of the person who was  wrong. This game is similar to Werewolf in genre but completely different in game play. In my opinion Coup works better than Werewolf with players who don't know each other as lying is completely optional and some people may find it uncomfortable to do so in the presence of strangers. 

    • Sushi Go! Party: 
      Players: 2-8
      Length: 20 - 30 mins
      Sushi Go! is a card drafting game meaning players are dealt a hand of cards and choose 1 card to keep . Then everyone passes their remaining cards to the player on their left and chooses another, so on and so forth till the round is over. The Cards they keep score differently depending on the type of food it is. Simple to learn with a surprising amount of strategy. Not to mention the art is adorable. We actually did a short video about it last week for the 100 days of board games campaign we're currently running on social media. Here's the link if you'd like to check it out. https://youtu.be/ewfaTsDBJl0

  • LOOT GAMES AND COMICS will have a free play board game section and will be teaching/playing games such as :

    Ultimate Werewolf: (social deduction game) 
    Players: 6-15
    Length : 15 minutes
    Ultimate Werewolf is an interactive game of deduction for two teams: Villagers and Werewolves. The Villagers don't know who the Werewolves are, and the Werewolves are trying to remain undiscovered while they slowly eliminate the Villagers one at a time. A Moderator (who isn't on a team) runs the game.

    Happy Salmon: (fast paced, reflex based, all ages)
    Players: 6-12
    Length : 15 minutes
    Happy Salmon is the simple, fast-paced card game packed to the gills with high-fivin',  fin-flappin' fun. Actions including the classic "High 5", the unifying "Pound It", the frantic "Switcheroo", and the delightful “Happy Salmon” will leave players doubled over in laughter.

    Onitama: (strategy, all ages)
    Players: 2 
    Length : 15 minutes 
    Onitama is an elegant and simple two player abstract strategy game where you take on the role of a Master, guiding your monk followers, in an attempt to defeat your opponent. Armed only with a handful of moves, your cunning, and your wits, have you the skill to be victorious?                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
    Forbidden Island: (co-operative strategy, requires reading, older child-adult)
    Players: 2-4 
    Length : 30 minutes
    Forbidden Island is a cooperative board game developed by Matt Leacock and published by Gamewright Games in 2010. Two to four players take the roles of different adventurers, moving around a mysterious island, looking for hidden treasures as the island sinks around them.
