Tabletop Gaming

A variety of board and card games will be available to play in Wickford throughout the weekend. There will be multiple tables available, so even if an event is listed in the schedule, there may still be space to play one of our may options. Our gaming staff will be happy to show you how to play any of the games or even join you in a game if they’re available.

The room hours are as follows:

Friday: noon to midnight
Saturday: noon to midnight
Sunday: noon to 4pm


The following special events will run during the weekend:

7 Wonders Tournament
Create world wonders and advance your society by competing for world dominance. Six players will complete two rounds in each hour-long tournament to find out who can manage their wonders best. Wonders will be assigned at random at the beginning of each round. The first round will play side A, the second round will be side B for the wonders. Scores from rounds A and B will be combined to determine an overall winner.

King of Tokyo Tournament
Up to six players at a time will compete for the title of King of Tokyo. Roll off versus five other monsters in a fast paced brawl for domination of the city. Points will be scored for being the last monster standing (2 points) and for eliminating another player (1 point each). Two rounds will be played and the top score for that hour will be crowned the ultimate Bishounen Monster King!

Kingsburg Tournament
Compete against four others for the favor of the court. The random fate of the dice dictates the resources available to build up your fiefdom. Player with the most points wins.

Yaoi Game Night
Are you a fan of Yaoi? Do you enjoy card games? Do ever wish your love for yaoi and card games could be combined? This panel will feature unique yaoi card games based off popular games such as Fluxx, Cards Against Humanity, Wed/Bed/Dead, Heads Up, and many others. Event will be free play, so come and go as you wish.

Elder Sign
Type: Board Game

Playtime: 90 min
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.

Animals, the mad, and those of more susceptible minds are driven to desperation by the supernatural forces the portals unleash.

Only they can stop the Ancient One beyond from finding its way to Earth and reducing humanity to cinders.

Forbidden Desert

Find the flying machine and escape before you all become permanent artifacts of the forbidden desert!

Forbidden Island
Type: Board Game
Players: 2-4
Playtime: 30 min
Players take turns moving their pawns around the ‘island’, which is built by arranging the many beautifully screen-printed tiles before play begins. As the game progresses, more and more island tiles sink, becoming unavailable, and the pace increases. Players use strategies to keep the island from sinking while trying to collect treasures and items. As the water level rises, it gets more difficult- sacrifices must be made.

King of Tokyo

Players: 2-6
Playtime: 30 min
In King of Tokyo, you play mutant monsters, gigantic robots, and strange aliens—all of whom are destroying Tokyo and whacking each other in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo. Roll dice to find power-ups, score points, and smash your friends.

Playtime: 30 min
Red Flags is “The Game of Terrible Dates.” In Red Flags, your goal is to use “Perk” cards to create the best date for “The Single” (the judge for this round). However, there is a catch. Players may also play “Red Flags” (bad traits) in an attempt to sabotage another player’s hot date.

Rummikub
Type: Tile Game
Players: 2-4
Playtime: 60 min
Similar to the Rummy that you play with cards—you try to get rid of all your tiles by forming numbers into runs of three tiles or more, or three to four of a kind.

San Juan
Type: Card Game
Players: 2-4
Playtime: 45-60 min
The deck of San Juan consists of 110 cards of production buildings (indigo, sugar, tobacco, coffee, and silver) and “violet” buildings that grant special powers or extra victory points. Cards from the hand can be either built or used as money to build something else. In each round (or governorship), each player in turn selects from one of the available roles, triggering an event that usually affects all players, such as producing goods or constructing buildings. Victory points are gained exclusively by building, and the game ends as soon as one player has put up twelve buildings.

Slash: Romance Without Boundaries
Type: Card Game
Players: 3-9
Playtime: 45+ min
Slash is a card-based party game in which players compete to create the best romantic fan fiction pairing. Everybody gets a hand of their favorite characters from pop culture, history, and literature. The matchmaker selects one from her hand and places it face up on the table. Each player in turn selects a possible ‘ship for that character using a card from their hand, narrating as necessary and hoping that the matchmaker chooses theirs.

Small World
Type: Board Game
Players: 2-5
Playtime: 45-60 min
In Small World, players vie for conquest and control of a world that is simply too small to accommodate them all.

With elegantly simple gameplay, Ticket to Ride can be learned in under 15 minutes, while providing players with intense strategic and tactical decisions every turn. Players collect cards of various types of train cars they then use to claim railway routes in North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who fulfill Destination Tickets – goal cards that connect distant cities; and to the player who builds the longest continuous route.

Tsuro
Type: Tile Game
Players: 2-8
Playtime: 15-20 min
A beautiful and beautifully simple game of laying a tile before your own token to continue its path on each turn. The goal is to keep your token on the board longer than anyone else’s, but as the board fills up this becomes harder because there are fewer empty spaces left… and another player’s tile may also extend your own path in a direction you’d rather not go.
