27 HeroClix players from across the country turned out for the second annual Clix For Cancer tournament this past Saturday at Fratton Park, Portsmouth.

Clix For Cancer is a tournament that raises funds for the Cancer Research UK Stand Up To Cancer campaign and tries to put a more laid back spin on the traditional tournament scene by allowing players to trade in raffle tickets they have purchased to re-roll any die rolls during their games. The prize pool totalling over £1000 was made up of donations from players, shops and Esdevium Games and totally over £1000 up for grabs.

After four rounds of Swiss the top four players split into an elimination bracket which eventually saw Matt Hardy crowned the Clix For Cancer 2014 champion and saw him walk away with a sealed brick of Guardians Of The Galaxy and a complete Hellfire Club teambase.

The event raised £1,017 for a good cause and plans are already underway to grow the event next year and extend the tournament to include a Magic: The Gathering event.

Paris, France; Los Altos, CA – August 25, 2014. Today, Asmodee (Esdevium Games parent company) and Days of Wonder announced that the two companies have joined forces, with the merger of Days of Wonder into the Asmodee Group of game companies. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

With Days of Wonder’s reputation as a premier publisher, Asmodee continues to build and strengthen its game portfolio, most notably with the addition of the Ticket to Ride line. It also increases its exposure to the US game market; and will benefit from Days of Wonder’s digital games development expertise.

With Asmodee’s position as one of the leaders in board game publishing and distribution, Days of Wonder will benefit from the Asmodee network of studios and increased access to broader international distribution.

“I’m thrilled that such a successful publisher as Days of Wonder has decided to join Asmodee Group,” said Stéphane Carville, Asmodee CEO. “By combining forces, we’ll be able to further our great company project – providing great titles to the gaming community and developing the game market across all borders.”

“As our leading European distributor, we have known and worked closely with the Asmodee Group for a very long time” said Days of Wonder CEO, Eric Hautemont. “We are excited to bring our experience and successful portfolio of games into the Asmodee family.”

Days of Wonder, with over 5 Million total games sold, will continue to operate with its current team as an independent brand and studio within the Asmodee Group. It will continue its core mission of developing and publishing games that Play different.™ – releasing only a very limited number of new games with uncompromising board game production values.

Assault at Imdaar Alpha

Last modified on 2014-06-06 13:35:05 GMT. 0 comments. Top.

In May-June 2014, Esdevium Games will be supporting retailers with organising a preview series of events for the Star Wars X-Wing Game.

At a secret research facility on Imdaar Alpha, Imperial scientists are developing a deadly new starfighter that could avoid Rebel sensors and scanners, providing the Empire with the means to crush the Rebel Alliance forever…

This May-June, Assault at Imdaar Alpha is your chance to get your hands on preview copies of the game’s fourth wave of starfighters: the Z-95 Headhunter, TIE defender, E-wing, and TIE phantom!


From left to right: E-wing, Z-95 Headhunter, TIE defender, and TIE phantom

What Is Assault at Imdaar Alpha?

FFG’s Assault at Imdaar Alpha is a global preview event, showcasing the fourth wave of X-Wing starfighters at exclusive pre-release tournaments taking place the weekend of May 30th – June 1st.

Participating stores will each receive a preview kit containing the following items (limit one kit per store):

  • One Z-95 Headhunter Expansion Pack
  • One TIE Defender Expansion Pack
  • One E-Wing Expansion Pack
  • One TIE Phantom Expansion Pack
  • Sixteen promotional copies of Bandit Squadron Pilot with extended art
  • A promotional poster featuring art from the expansions
  • An instructional letter detailing how to run an Assault at Imdaar Alpha tournament

How Does It Work?

Each retailer participating in the Assault at Imdaar Alpha preview event will run an X-Wing tournament  where players bring 100-point squadrons and compete through a number of Swiss-style preliminary rounds while following all the standard rules described in the X-Wing Tournament Rules document (pdf, 231 KB).

However, in the final round, everything changes! After the close of the preliminary rounds, the tournament’s two top players set aside their personal squads and command new squads that they build with the starfighters included in the event kit.

One player will construct an Imperial squad that fields both the TIE defender and TIE phantom. The other will construct a Rebel squad that utilizes the Z-95 Headhunter as well as the E-wing. Both players will complete their 100-point squadrons by adding starships and upgrades from their existing X-Wing collections. Then, each of the tournament’s top four participants get to claim one of the preview expansions!

Prizes:

  • 1st Place – First choice of one Assault at Imdaar Alpha preview starship expansion
  • 2nd Place – Second choice of one Assault at Imdaar Alpha preview starship expansion
  • 3rd Place – Third choice of one Assault at Imdaar Alpha preview starship expansion
  • 4th Place – Fourth choice of one Assault at Imdaar Alpha preview starship expansion
  • Top 16 – One commemorative Bandit Squadron Pilot with extended art

NOTE: Retailers will find the full details on hosting an Assault at Imdaar Alpha tournament in the kit’s instructional letter.

This May, Wizkids and Esdevium Games will bring competitive HeroClix back to the UK!

“We wanted to do something really special to mark the return of official competitive HeroClix” said European Organised Play Coordinator Tom Pike, “What could be better than hosting the debut of the 2014 convention season? This is the first chance anyone in the world will have to win figures like Hulk & Red She-Hulk and Doop, or to buy the new con-exclusives like the fabulous Black Lantern Anti-Monitor. We also have a few surprises to announce, but you’ll have to wait until closer to the event.”

The Official UK Heroclix National Championship is part of a series of events taking place across Europe this summer, culminating at Essen Spiel in October when the top players from each participating nation will face-off for a chance to claim the European Heroclix crown.

Players can qualify for the June 1st, 300-point Modern Constructed UK final in one of two ways – by winning an in-store qualifier at their local retailer in the preceding months, or at the Sealed Open Qualifier on Saturday May 31st at UK Games Expo, where at least eight places in the final 32 will be up for grabs.

Tom Pike added, “There will be participation prizes for everyone who takes part, and the top prizes are…unprecedented.”

Android: Netrunner Chronos Protocol

“Today, we speak with Kelvin Harding, the first human to receive implanted memories. He is the twenty-eight year-old brother of Miriam Harding, one of the scientists responsible for developing the process used to implant his memories; he is also a sixty-seven year-old resident of New Angeles named Carl Yung.”
–from the archived NBN cast, The Man Who Lived Twice

 

It’s time for the Chronos Protocol!

Throughout April 2014, Esdevium Games will be supporting retailers with organising a special series of events and shape the future of the Android: Netrunner universe. The Chronos Protocol Tour is a special tour designed to allow participants to interact more fully with the direction of the game they love where each tour stop will feature a high-level tournament, complete with exclusive prize support, including custom playmats and messenger bags.

The greatest highlight of the Chronos Protocol Tour, though, is the opportunity it offers players to vote for one of two potential Corp ID cards. One ID will enter the enter the game; the other will defunded and dissolved.

ffg2

Custom Prize Support

 

Each Chronos Protocol Tour tournament features custom prize support. These exclusive prizes range from the alternate art cards handed out as participation prizes to the custom messenger bags awarded to each tournament’s top players. Kits include:

  • 3 custom Chronos Protocol Tour messenger bags
  • 8 exclusive Chronos Protocol Tour playmats
  • 50 copies of the alternate art card for NBN: Making News

 

What Is the Chronos Protocol? The Story Thus Far…

 

In order to fully understand what’s at stake for the two Corps invested in the Chronos Protocol, you need to first understand its origins…

The Chronos Protocol is the result of many years of work by Miriam Harding and Dr. Evelyn Ibarra, who first met as undergraduates at EIT and later founded a small start-up technology company called Morph. At Morph, they focused on new applications of brain-taping and mind-mapping technologies and after securing capital courtesy of Fisk Investments, Inc., they opened a small research laboratory located in Heinlein.

Among their early efforts, the project codenamed “Chronos” showed the most promise. While brain-taping normally requires a recipient brain in a tabula rasa state to which mature brains cannot be returned, Chronos was created to explore the integration of mind-mapping within existing biotic structures. Harding and Ibarra coded a new RNA structure that allowed the transfer information to use pre-existing neural paths and early tests on small rodents proved to be effective and reliable. Further tests on clones were also promising. Harding and Ibarra’s new protocol was able to eliminate redundant information, allowing the recipient organism to maintain its sense of identity even while it absorbed pre-programmed snippets of knowledge––or memories.

Eventually Kelvin Harding, Miriam’s brother, volunteered to be the first human subject. He was injected with a blend of memories pulled from the oldest preserved digital brain in the public domain and after thirteen hours of sleep therapy, he awoke to discover that he no longer could tell the difference between what was injected and what was real. Despite his sister’s requests, Kelvin created a cast about his experience (“The Man Who Lived Twice”) and sold it to a local NBN affiliate.

Morph was soon under constant surveillance and Harding and Ibarra were barraged by purchase offers for their company, all of which they turned down. Eventually, after a particularly nasty break-in at the research lab on Heinlein, they realized that it would be impossible for them to keep their research private and they reached out to two of the companies that had expressed interest in the technology: Haas-Bioroid and Jinteki.

While the Chronos Protocol was nowhere near perfected or ready for mass consumption, the technology had so much potential that neither company could let its rival acquire it. The ability to remove traumatic memories or implant a sophisticated set of skills could create a whole new canvas upon which to paint human experience. Both companies understood: This powerful, selective mind-mapping technology must be acquired… at any cost.

Throughout the Chronos Protocol Tour, participants will be able to cast their votes to decide which of the two megacorps will acquire the Chronos Protocol and which will see it slip forever through its grasp!

Both sites will serve as hubs for up-to-date information on Buddyfight products and events for English-speaking regions worldwide. The Facebook page will also allow fans of the game to communicate directly with Bushiroad as well as with each other.

Future Card Buddyfight launches in January, 2014, with the releases of Trial Deck Vol. 1: Dominant Dragons and Trial Deck Vol. 2: Savage Steel on January 24, 2014. The first booster for the series, Booster Pack Vol. 1: Dragon Chief, will release one week later on January 31, 2014, with a full schedule of products coming out throughout the remainder of 2014.

Bushiroad will support Future Card Buddyfight with a robust organized play program from launch, further details of which will be forthcoming. An English-language dub of the animated program will also be available shortly thereafter in Singapore, Malaysia and on YouTube.

Players bring 100-point squadrons and compete through a number of Swiss-style preliminary rounds while following all the standard rules described in the X-Wing Tournament Rules document.

However, in the final round, everything changes! After the close of the preliminary rounds, the tournament’s two top players set aside their personal squads and assume control of preview squads built from the event kits. Then, each of the tournament’s top four participants get to claim one of the preview expansions!

Esdevium to launch Game of Thrones board game next month

Last modified on 2013-10-03 16:08:50 GMT. 0 comments. Top.

HBO01_solicitation_image

HBO property has been made into a board game and will be supplied to the UK from next month by specialist, Esdevium.

Game of Thrones will be a card-based game for two players based on the epic HBO series where players wage war in the fields of Westeros and conspire to crush their opponents in court at Kings Landing. The award-winning TV show achieved huge popularity after airing its first 2 series on Sky Atlantic and the game is set to be the perfect gift for fans this Christmas.

Esdevium’s Ben Hogg commented:

“We’re really excited to be launching Game of Thrones before Christmas. We feel the series lends itself particularly well as a game whilst still keeping the themes of the books and TV show very close to its heart. It’s an ideal Christmas gift for fans of the show.”

It’s the latest adaptation of a popular TV/film property for Esdevium, who already supply licensed games of Take Me Out, Would I Lie to You?, The Big Bang Theory, Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who and The Hunger Games.

To make an order or pre-order, please call Esdevium on 01420 593593 or email Sales
