Queen Games is excited to be demoing some of our leading games at CinCityCon again in 2018. Here’s an idea of what we will have on hand.
On the hunt for priceless treasures, groups of adventurers explore the legendary temple at Luxor. Their ultimate goal is the tomb of the pharaoh, but many treasures can be collected as they search. As they explore, the challenge unfolds: The player who manages to quickly get their team of adventurers to the tomb, while salvaging as many treasures as possible, will be the winner.
Luxor offers variable game play as the path that leads to the tomb is different for every game — and will even change during play!
Prototype of Franchise, which is on KS now and is an Essen release.
In Franchise, players are entrepreneurs, bringing to life the American Dream in the U.S.A. during the 1960s. Starting with a small, newly founded business (such as car rental, a diner, or a coffee shop), they expand into other towns and cities. By adding branches to their businesses, they increase their income and influence. The player with the greatest influence across the game’s regions wins!
Possibly Skylands and/or Bastille, which are also Essen and on the same KS.
King Arthur is searching for a worthy heir. Together with Merlin, he tries to find the best candidate among the Knights of the Round Table.
In merlin, players move their knights or Merlin with the help of dice around the action ring to get the most desired actions. While the knights are only moved by the corresponding player, Merlin can be moved by all players, which makes integrating Merlin in one’s plan a tricky endeavor.
There are multiple ways to score victory points such as defeating barbarians, building manors in the surrounding area and increasing one’s influence in the six counties. Additionally, players can fulfill task cards during their turn to get more victory points. The player who plans his actions most efficiently will ultimately have the most points and thus will be the royal successor of King Arthur.
Pioneers, which was just on the Kennerspiel recommended list.
In a game of Pioneers, the players attempt to populate the cities shown on the game board with their pioneers, using coaches to transport them around the map. Each pioneer has a specific profession, and can only be settled in a city where their work is needed.
After all the pioneers riding in a coach have been deployed on the game board, the player controlling the coach earns money and victory points. In addition, the players construct roads between the cities, expanding their own network and earning money from other players who use the roads. At the end of the game, each player will be rewarded with additional victory points based on the number of their pioneers in their largest network of connected roads. The player with the most victory points wins!
