2 to 4 players. A fast-paced wargame using no dice. Players resolve conflicts by drawing from their own bags of Discs. Decide which conflicts to win and which to lose.

Or, concede the conflict by drawing a Wealth or Politics Disc to strengthen your collection of discs. When you are too weak to win, choose when and where to fight, to force your opponents to squander their strength on the rewards which they need the least.

Royals

2-5 players Welcome to the card selecting and worker placement game where cooperation or possible competition leads to high scores. There are plenty of regions to acquire both large and small. There are plenty of methods to play whether focusing on one region or spreading yourself across the entire continent. The points can be hidden while intrigue can upset the current ruler. The game will involve the original artwork as well as a brief pre-game tutorial.

Salem/Deception: Murder in Hong Kong
Limited Capacity seats available

4-12 players. Two quick games played back to back. Salem incites the atmosphere of paranoia that held the village of Salem captive. Players act with the assumption that there are witches among them and there will be! Game play is simple: try to rid the village of witches and keep the identities of your own residents secret. In Deception, players take on the roles of investigators attempting to solve a murder case – but there's a twist. The killer is one of the investigators!

Besides the color-coded levels, there are attributes that have to match up, like doorways and columns.

We all love playing video games, but what actually goes into making them? Join Brian Hudson, owner of Templar Games (Detroit's first dedicated game studio), as he covers the basics and leads the audience in a mini-game jam to come up with an idea for a totally new game.
