Seattle Gamenight

A Northwest Tradition Since a Couplea Months Ago

Halloween Gamenight

Join us at 6:00 on Wednesday, 10/29, at The Burgundian in Green Lake for Seattle Gamenight: Halloween Edition. In with the usual bag of games there will be seasonal selections such as Elder Sign, a “fast-paced, cooperative dice game of supernatural intrigue”:

It is 1926, and the museum’s extensive collection of exotic curios and occult artifacts poses a threat to the barriers between our world and the elder evils lurking between dimensions. Gates to the beyond begin to leak open, and terrifying creatures of increasing strength steal through them. Animals, the mad, and those of more susceptible minds are driven to desperation by the supernatural forces the portals unleash. Only a handful of investigators race against time to locate the eldritch symbols necessary to seal the portals forever. Only they can stop the Ancient One beyond from finding its way to Earth and reducing humanity to cinders.

Bring your own game, spooky or otherwise, and let us know if you have requests. And if you wish to RSVP, you can do so via  the Facebook invitation for the Halloween Gamenight.  We hope to see you there!

September Gamenight

The July SEAgamenight will be held at 6:00 on Tuesday, 09/30, at The Elysian on Capital Hill. We have the large table waaaaaay in the back.

The featured game this month is Corporate America:

In Corporate America, a political satire game about corporate influence of government, players take the role of corporations that manipulate the population, government, and each other to maximize profits. Players keep their money secret until the end of the game, when the player with the most money wins. Each game turn progresses through four phases:

  • In the Wall Street Phase, players start businesses (like Trius and Oggle Search) which fall into various industries (like transportation, luxury, and technology).
  • In the Main Street Phase, players take turns playing consumer cards, which determine which businesses make money. Players can manipulate the population and can bribe each other to make sure their business products get consumed.
  • In the Campaign Trail Phase, a number of election issues are revealed and players get the opportunity to run for president. After players electioneer, players secretly bid on candidates to determine who will be the next president. After three bid rounds, whoever has raised the most money in the campaign wins the election.
  • In the Capitol Hill Phase, the new president is rewarded with an Executive Privilege card, which grants a special power, and can then pass legislation to impact businesses and the rules of the game. The president can keep campaign promises or blatantly break them for personal gain!

The game ends after a set number of turns. Whoever has the most money at the end of the game wins!
