Addicted to trying new games? Love being the first of your friends to play something? Wish you could try a game before backing it on Kickstarter or Steam? Then it's time to be excited. We're giving you an exclusive chance to play Interstellar Mayhem, the flagship tabletop game from German game designer Alexander Ommer of Soylent Games!
A Battle of the junkships rages in the Gamma Quadrant. Everyone wants to gain control of the valuable asteroid field, and there is only one way to do this: destroy all opposing ships!
Interstellar Mayhem is all about shooting down ships, evading asteroids and ramming opponents while juggling resources to keep your own clunker of a ship intact (ie. it's really fun). Fast to learn but challenging to fully master, it's perfect for both the casual gamer and hardcore board game geek. Successful in Europe, but not yet available on the North American market, there are plans to launch version 2.0 via Kickstarter later this year. This is your chance to give this awesome game a go so you can back with confidence, and maybe even win your very own copy!
TABLETOP TOURNAMENT: What better way to demo a game based on dog-fighting spaceships than a knock-out tournament?! This will be one of the rare tabletop tournaments you'll find where anyone has a chance to take it all, because no one has played it beforehand! All players will learn the game simultaneously with a teaching round, and then it's each pilot for themselves in a 3-round knock-out tournament. The top 3 will go home with HUGE prizes, including cash and a copy of the game for 1st place!
Get knocked out early? No sweat. We'll be teaching the alternate rules for variable game play of Interstellar Mayhem, have other games on hand to play, and you'll be placed into the draw for some very cool door prizes too.
INTERSTELLAR MAYHEM - THE COMPUTER GAME: Not so into tabletop games? No problem. Set to be released on Steam Greenlight later this year, currently in it's alpha stages, meeples at our event will be the first of the public to try Interstellar Mayhem for the computer!!!
It wouldn't be a Meeple's Republic event without good beer and yummy snacks, and we're stoked to have Broadhead Brewery as our official beer sponsor and The Albion Rooms putting on an awesome spread! Plus this time around we'll have something extra special too: EACH PLAYER GETS AN EXCLUSIVE GIFT FROM THE DESIGNER!
