    Demo Day with Fireside Games

    July 17, 2013


    The fantastic folks at Fireside Games are on a crazy tour of the West Coast and will be stopping by the store for a very special Board Game Night. They’ll be demoing their entire line of games, running a tournament, and handing out a bunch of promotional swag, to boot. Here’s a list of all the great things they’ll be doing at Gamescape on Thursday, July 25th 5-10pm:

    Demos of the following games:

    Castle Panic –  A huge hit in the store, Castle Panic is a cooperative, light strategy game for 1 to 6 players ages 10 and up. Players must work together to defend their castle, in the center of the board, from monsters that attack out of the forest, at the edges of the board. Players trade cards, hit and slay monsters, and plan strategies together to keep their castle towers intact. The players either win or lose together, but only the player with the most victory points is declared the Master Slayer. Players must balance the survival of the group with their own desire to win.

    Bears! – You and your friends are on a relaxing camping trip. But as you hammer in the last stake, you hear rustling. Bears are romping through the campsite! Who will survive the rampage? And who will be eaten by bears? Bears! is a fast-playing, competitive game in which you score points by pairing dice. Shoot bears and run from tents for a few points, or take a risk and score big by sleeping through the attack! But watch out! If Bears are left at the end of the round, your sleeping campers are done for!

    Bloodsuckers – A team of skilled vampire hunters with an arsenal of modern weapons has tracked down a cabal of bloodsuckers and the battle for the soul of Blackwood is about to begin. Play as either vampires or vampire hunters fighting to control the most locations within Blackwood. Unleash powerful card combos to attack your opponent but beware as your strength rises and falls with the time of day. Battle alone or alongside a teammate to recruit the innocent bystanders at the church, graveyard, nightclub, police station, and hospital. Win the battles and claim the most locations to declare victory in the fight between the living and the undead!

    In addition to showing participants how to play these games, Fireside will be running a Bears! tournament later in the evening – and the winner gets a free copy of the game. They’ll also be showing a sneak preview of their new Castle Panic-styled co-operative zombie game, Dead Panic. You’re going to get a whole lot more milage out of your regularly-scheduled Thursday Board Game Night!
