KantCon Board/Card Game Highlight – Descent: Journey into the Dark

Descent: Journey into the Dark

Descent: Journey into the Dark by Fantasy Flight Games

This event runs on July 10 at 9:00 a.m.

Descent: Journeys in the Dark is a semi-cooperative game in which two to five players will take on the antagonistic roles of heroes and Overlord. Up to four players will choose characters with a wide assortment of skills and innate abilities to be the heroes who will explore dungeons in search of treasure and adventure. One player will take on the role of the Overlord and will control the dungeon’s many traps, puzzles, and monsters.

The heroes’ goal will be to cooperatively conquer the dungeon, seize its many treasures, and achieve other objectives as set by the scenario. If the heroes cooperate and achieve their goals, they will all win. The Overlord’s objective is simply to use all the means at his or her disposal – from deadly traps and ferocious monsters – to kill the heroes. Each hero has a certain Conquest Point value to the party and if too many Conquest Points are lost through hero death, the party loses and the Overlord wins.

Are you equipped and ready to step onto the Glyph of Transport and cross the dark portal into the world of Descent?

New players welcome!

KantCon Board Game Event Highlight – Thunder Hamsters and the Temple of Cheese

Thunder Hamsters and the Temple of Cheese

Thunder Hamsters and the Temple of Cheese Game from Hamster Press

This event runs on Friday, July 8, at 9:00 a.m.!

The Thunder Hamsters have found the way to the fabled Temple of Cheese. They work together to get there and then race into the temple to liberate the holy, holey cheeses. The one who brings out the most treasure wins!

Thunder Hamsters is different from other board games because players resolve encounters by making up short stories about what happens when you encounter an item or another character. What does that magic ring actually do? How does a hamster pick up a wheel of cheese to drag it out of the temple? Do you have what it takes to save the princess and defeat the evil guards?

New players welcome! Recommended for teens and adults.
