Conquest Avalon in Sacramento March 18, 2023

Post by Goblin King »

Hi folks, come join us in Sacramento for a fun day of MECCG at Conquest Avalon.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. we have the good guys.
Wizards of Middle Earth is a game for 2 to 5 players in which each player takes the role of one of the five wizards sent to Middle Earth to beat Sauron. You build fellowships of heroes, gather treasures, slay monsters and rally groups of Free People to your cause. A council can be called by the first wizard to reach 20 points and then everyone else gets one last turn before the winner is determined. You can also win instantly by finding the One Ring and destroying it in Mount Doom.
This game uses a large map, cards, dice and a miniature of the five wizards. All components are provided. Players don’t need to bring anything but themselves. The game takes about 4 hours with a dedicated guide or teacher (me).
Even more background: This boardgames uses the components from the Wizards of Middle Earth Collectable Card Gam (MECCG) published from 1995 to 1999. It is a multiplayer variant and a game cube of that game. I’ve been running this game at conventions since 2006.

Then, Saturday afternoon (4 p.m. to 8 p.m.), we have the bad guys

Nazgul of Middle Earth is a game for 2 to 9 players in which each player takes the role of one of nine Nazgul commanded by Sauron. Your companies of trolls, orcs or minions will gather treasure, slay villages and recruit armies (or dragons) to your cause. An audience with the Dark Lord can be called by the first Nazgul to reach 20 points and they everyone else gets one last turn before the winner is determined. You can also win instantly by finding the ring and taking it to Sauron’s tower.

This game uses a large map, cards, dice and a miniature of the nine Nazgul. All components are provided. Players don’t need to bring anything but themselves. The game takes about 5 hours with a dedicated guide or teacher (me). Even more background: This boardgames uses the components from the Lidless Eye Collectable Card Gam (LECCG) published from 1997 to 1999.

The word on the streets is, if we can manage it, we would like to also have an actual MECCG tournament either Friday night or Sunday morning (why not both?) at the There And Back Again Cafe in Sacramento.
Holler back if you are interested and let's make it happen!

Goblin King,

We are planning to be there for Saturday' events. I hope we can attend the meetup at "there and back again cafe". Hopefully all three of us (me and the grown kiddos) can make it.
