    ---------------------------------------------------End of Update------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    Mechanics Update! A lot of people have asked what are the mechanics of the campaign. Well here's a quick sneak peek!

    1.) Players will compete in different board game challenges throughout the campaign. They will be pitted against (Humans, AI, a different team of AI or Humans) and will be grouped into "PODs" . Each week the last placer of each "POD" will be eliminated. It is survival of the fittest!

     

    2.) There will be a 2 week window for people to meet with their respective POD members to complete the challenge. This will enable them enough time to research, practice and plan regarding the challenge. All members of the POD must agree on a date and venue for the meetup. Should there be no consensus, majority wins and top seed breaks ties. Failure to comply with the meetup will automatically result in elimination (even if he/she has an immunity card)

     

    3.) Immunity/Bonus cards - from time to time, challenges will give top winners of the PODs rewards (these range from store credit, immunity from elimination, etc...) - these will be announced at the same time of the challenge.

     

    4.) Challenges - every 2 weeks there will be 3 sets of challenges that will come out. Each POD must decide which challenge they will participate in. Top seed breaks ties if there are no majorities. Things will get harder and harder each round that Gaming Library can assure you.

     

    5.) Winners must post a report detailing the ff:

    • Venue and Date where challenge was held
    • Challenge Undertaken
    • Ranking of Players (top to bottom)
    • Picture as evidence 

     

    6.) Venues for meetups:

     

     

     

     Prize : 5,000 worth of boardgames!

    Legendary All aBOARD Tournament + Free Game Day!

    Are you ready for the Legendary Tournament?
    Tournament Mechanics:
    1.) Players who bring their copies will get a 5% discount. Players are encouraged to bring both Base game and expansion. Discount code will only apply to *available games on hand and in the next purchase.
    2.) Tournament Organizer will announce on each round the Scheme Twist, Mastermind, Villain Groups and Henchmen groups.
    3.) Players will randomly select who goes first and will draft one hero. In the event that there are less players than hero slots, the last player to draft on the first round will be the one to draft first on the second round.
    4.) Each pod (table of players) must win against the scenario. Failure to do so will result to the whole pod being eliminated from the tournament.
    5.) Depending on the number of players, there will be 2-3 elimination rounds. Only the players who advance past the elimination rounds will advance. In the event that there are more than 8 players, only the top 8 will advance to the semi-finals. Top 8 will be determined by the accumulated VP points by the players throughout the elimination round.
    6.) In the semi-finals, each pod must first win against its scenario. All players who win against the scenario will be ranked according to their VP points. Top 4 will advance to the championship round.
    7.) In the championship round, the player with the most VP points will be declared the champion. Victory against the scenario is not required.
    Notes:
    1.) Please be ready for hard scenarios in the elimination round. Tournament organizer will be modifying some of them to increase their difficulty level.
    2.) Tournament organizer reserves the right to modify the mechanics and rules depending on the situation.
    3.) Incase of ties, player with the least wounds will advance. If in case of tie still, players with the most valuable deck (number of stars) will advance.
    Now are you ready? Contributions to strategy primers, especially on team play will be greatly appreciated and rewarded. =D

    Smash Up Tournament Results

    Congratulations Tomii Eusebio for being the first ever Smash Up Champion in the Philippines

     

     

    Here's the tournament Report by Tomii :

     

    1st match: Dino/Wizards Got slow start, often only getting 3rd place on base scores but manage to score a base

    alone to catch up. Got owned by Zombie/Steampunks when he can score a base every turn.

    Got tied for 2nd place.

     

     

    2nd match: Zombie/Plants I was able to setup an untouched Water Lily early but unable to score 1st on bases. I

    was on 2VP while the other two already had more than 5. I was able to catch up mid game,

    scoring a base every turn. Played overrun on last base to be scored to seal the victory

    on my next turn.

    3rd match: Zombie/Steampunks Got my Ahabs and Rotary Slug-Thrower early. Setup my Ahabs on different bases then

    played slug-thrower to amass them on one base to score 1st, not counting Tenacious Z.

    Returned the slug-thrower to hand to score another 1st next turn. Mechanic and Zombie Lord seal the deal on the succeeding turns.

     

     

    Semi-Finals: Zombie/Plants Everyone's on a slow start except for the Ghost player which has scored a base on his

    2nd turn because he has already discarded his hand. I was able to set up my Lily for

    card draw, and so I was able to catch up. I forced the ghost player on my left to score

    the Rhodes Plaza Mall so that when he scores it, we'll be both tied to 15VP. But we got

    ruled out to continue playing until there's a clear 1st and 2nd place. Play continues

    on, and I eventually won with the Ninja guy.

     

     

    Finals: Steampunks/Plants Draft sequence was Ninja-Zombie-Steampunks-Bear-Wizards-Plants-Pirates-Dino First base (Minions +1 power) was scored on the 1st round by playing War Raptor,Tooth

    and Claw-Walker,Mall Crawled Tenacious Z-Weed Eater-Polar Commando.

     

    My first Lily got killed by the Ninja guy, but not the next Sprout which evolved into another Lily. I was

    scoring bases one after another after drawing Slug-thrower. Killing blow was on the base having a Steam Man, playing a Mechanic fetching the slug-thrower then a Blossomed Steam Queen

    SG 1-0
    SO 0-1
    Maldaria 0-2
    Fricks 0-2
    Here's the write up from Niico:

    Round 1: Torgan vs. Samuel Farthen (Benj)

    I crowd his walls early with a bunch of Berserkers and a crusher. The Berserkers eventually take a wall down and force Samuel and his troops back and to circle the walls away from the Berserkers. Using Ice Armors on 1 life Berserkers I get off a well timed For Glory on Samuel. With the dead Berserkers I summon Ugg. Samuel charges Ugg with a Transformation. I summon Grok and quickly put two more walls around her. Grok and Ugg tag team Samuel.

     

    I predict that I will be playing Torgan for the whole tourney.

     

    Round 2: Torgan vs. Tacullu (Marshall)

    Knowing that I trundled his modified Sand Goblins with a base Sirian last month means that I know I'm playing Torgan again.

     

    We start attritioning off our own units, so he can Magic Drain and so I don't get Magic Drained. An early Kalal and all my events and champions get buried. Hooray.

     

    Marshall manages to field all 3 of his champions before I even draw one while having to throw out most of my commons to magic. I manage to attrition them with Krom and a bunch of commons. He decks out and Tacullu is looking at a Berserker and Ugg. Marshall decides to make a short and painful story shorter and concedes.

     

     

    Round 3: Mad Sirian vs. Tacullu (Mary Anne)

    Knowing she played Sirian for her first two games I expected her to go for Torgan. But she also won against Sirian for her first two games. She picks Sirian, I make her play her Benders (since she won against Sirian twice with her Shadow Elves)

     

    Again, I crowd walls using Vampires and Warlocks. Hoping to demolish one or two to goad Tacullu forward. No luck. I throw a Corpse Wyrm down which gets counter summoned quickly. We eventually both deck-out without much action. Eventually it comes down to Hirud and Gul-Dass against Tacullu and Kalal with a Mad Sirian in the distance belting out "I will survive".

     

     

    Final Thoughts:It was a good day. A lot of new players showed up as well as the usual culprits. I hope one day in the future, the stars align and everybody shows up :P

     

    - Nicco Mapua, September Champion
