Swancon (swancon.com.au) is holding a games day as a fundraiser for this year's West Australian Science Fiction Convention, to be held over Easter.

Everybody is welcome

Monday 4 March 2013
1200-1700
UCIC Hall, 97 William St Perth
entry $10.00

I've just made a list of (some) of the games I'll be bringing along, plus any prizes donated by our sposnors. As you'll see I'm leaning toward fun casual board and card games that are quick to teach and take no more than an hour to play. (That's not prescriptive though; anyone can bring games of any complexity)

Sponsored by Tactics and Looney Labs (more sponsors to follow) - THANKS !

DONATED BY OUR FRIENDS AT TACTICS

PLAY TO WIN - everyone who plays a game of Tsuro goes into the draw to win a copy of the game

A beautiful and beautifully simple game of laying a tile before your own token to continue its path on each turn. The goal is to keep your token on the board longer than anyone else's, but as the board fills up this becomes harder because there are fewer empty spaces left... and another player's tile may also extend your own path in a direction you'd rather not go.

2-8 players
15 minutes

As seen on Wil Wheaton's 'Tabletop' show

Yes it's a children's game - but it's a lot of fun and the art is adorable. Think Carcassonne with tentacles.

Following the victory in the Conflict of Autumn, The Regime of Winter has clutched the Land of Fairy Tales in its cold grasp. Fuelled by hate and fear, Winter aims at extinguishing the flame of Love and the light of Hope under a blanket of snow and the never-ending chill of a winter night. In the winding alleys and the small houses desperately clinging to the hillside of Wintertown, frightened Tales move in the shadows, knowing they cannot allow all Hope for the future to be snuffed out by the cold and ready to fight to drive Winter away and let Spring come again.

In Winter Tales, a storytelling board game, players tell the tale of the conflict between the characters of fairy tales, who represent all that is good and hopeful, and the Soldiers of Winter, who incarnate evil and the fierce cold of Winter. Players will ally themselves with one of the warring Factions, controlling characters and fighting for the comeback of Spring or the suffocation of all hope, bringing on an endless Winter.

Winter Tales is an ever-changing game as each time the players will tell a completely different story, creating a shared plot.
