May 13th. The CG Realm May Game Night - Featuring Plague Inc

The second Saturday of every month is board game night at The CG Realm!

Free open gaming from 5 pm until 10 pm. All ages welcome. No experience necessary. Curious about the growing popularity of board games? Come on out! A veteran gamer since the days of the Avalon Hill bookcase games. Come on out!

Every event will have a theme or a featured game. There will be people on hand willing to teach the featured game. This is an open gaming event though and there's no need to stick to the game/theme of the night. The store has a large selection of demo games and many local gamers bring games from home they are excited to teach and play. 

The CGRealm is located at 1311 Tecumseh road east. Right on the corner of Hall and Tecumseh. At the site of the old Party Warehouse. Diagonally across from Family Video. Parking available on the street (free after 6 pm) and in the back.

Featured game: Plague Inc.

Plague Inc: The Board Game is a strategic game of infection, evolution and extinction for 1-5* people - based on the smash-hit digital game with over 85 million players. Can you infect the world?

Each player is a deadly disease and they must battle against each other to spread their plagues, develop new symptoms and ultimately wipe out humanity.

Starting with Patient Zero, you spread your infection across the world by placing tokens in cities - earning DNA points and preventing other players from becoming dominant. Players choose which countries are placed on the board but you must be both climate resistant and connected to a country before you can infect it. Eventually, as countries become fully infected - you try to kill them using the Death Dice.

Each player’s unique pathogen can be upgraded by evolving trait cards onto an evolution slide (with DNA points). At the start, your disease is weak and unspecialised, so you will need to add new symptoms to make it stronger. Choose carefully and plan ahead in order to react to the changing world and exploit opportunities created by other player’s actions.

A simple nosebleed could accelerate things early on, whilst diarrhea will help you thrive in hot countries. Sneezing can infect new continents by air but Total Organ Failure would allow you wipe out multiple countries each turn.

As countries start to fall, use powerful event cards to alter the balance of power. You might try to eradicate a dominant player by bombing their diseased cities, or hold the Olympics to cause huge numbers of infected people to travel to a healthy continent.

When the world collapses, who will be the ultimate plague?

While at The CGRealm check out The Windsor Sandwich Shop. They provide quality sandwiches, soups, salads, coffees, chips, smoothies, desserts and more! All available in a fun gaming environment!

Check out their menu: http://www.windsorsandwichshop.com/menu.html

Personally, I recommend the potato bacon soup when they have it and the oreo cheesecake.
