Affliction: Salem 1692

GM: Bethany S System: Affliction: Salem 1692 Game Code: BGM17124608

Worker placement. Vie for limited actions each turn. After actions are selected, influence is spent to affect the community of Salem. The hysteria over witches among the people of Salem swept the region like a disease in 1692. As is the case in any tragic event, there are those whom will use the circumstances to their advantage. Under the veil of the witch-hunt lie other motivations; power, greed, revenge and righteousness. AFFLICTION is a game set in the hysteria of a witch-hunt. Use your influence to whisper in the ear of the magistrate, judge, governor or minister to protect some and have others arrested. Salem was a chance to gain property, exact revenge and prove one’s righteousness. This is the one witch-hunting game without witches!

Infiltration: A Card Game of Corporate Larceny Sold Out!

GM: Juliana B System: Infiltration - 1st Game Code: BGM17116868

Infiltration is a Press-Your-Luck card game. You're a thief stealing secrets from a corporate facility. The alarm wails as you advance, bringing you closer valuable loot but farther away from escape! You are an operative looking to steal the most data from a secure facility and make it out before the alarm reaches 99. The facility is set up by sequential cards. As you enter a room, the card is flipped over. Now you must deal with NPCs, blow tech locks, collect data and deal with other operatives looking to do the same. The thief that outsmarts their counterparts by holding the most data and making it out of the facility before security shows up wins and gets to brag about it at the pub later.
