As some of you may have already noticed from myself and Dave O pottering around with weird counters and world maps and flags, we as a club are organising the clubs 1st Mega game in conjunction with the guys at Kirton games.
This will be on Sunday the 28th of May at Kirton Games store in Crediton, within easy walking distance of food, parking, etc.
A brief explanation of a Mega Game;
A Mega Game is a large pseudo board/role playing game which involves a massive number of players - in this case around 40 + organisers - trying to guide their teams through a specific scenario. In this case an ALIEN INVASION.
The players are organised into teams representing various countries around the globe - such as the UK, US, China, Russia, etc, with each team member assigned a specific role within the group (President, Defence Chief, UN Ambassador and Head Scientist). It will be the job of each team to accomplish a set of objectives which both rival other countries and also potentially pit them against the Aliens.
One team will represent the Aliens themselves, with their own mysterious set of objectives and agendas.
On top of that the organisers will be relaying other random crisis events from around the world and organising the World wide Press.
The rules are simple and easy to pick up on the day - and the organisers will be there to assist with any queries. Further, you’ll be able to negotiate with world powers, wield UN vetos, Unleash Nuclear strikes, declare war on rivals, send special agents and spec teams across the globe on covert missions of your own design, manipulate the press, arrange complex alliances, backstab your complex alliances, etc, etc…
Whichever team comes closest to completing their objectives by the end of a non specified number of turns will win the day.
Each player will pay a nominal booking fee of £2 that will go towards Kirton games and Rygas to assist with running costs.
Ideally, we would suggest that you book in as a group (teams are generally 4) and you will be assigned a random Faction to play (dress up is thoroughly encouraged but not obligatory)
Individual players are still more than welcome to join in, and we will assign you into a team on the day.
If you know anyone who isn’t necessarily a club member but might still be interested, by all means please invite them along too!
If you are interested or have any questions please either post here or get hold of myself or Dave O at the Rygas club.
