  • Payroll & The Red Zone - Sean Finegan: 4:45 - 6:30,6:45 - 8:30

    Payroll: Payroll is a worker placement, resource management game that will test your ability to build a successful business.

The Red Zone is a well balanced fast paced football game that allows novice and experienced football fans to feel the excitement of pro football.

Choose what plays to run and how to utilize your star players at crucial times. Will you run the ball for a shorter but surer gain? Will you pass the ball inside and outside to throw the defense off? Or perhaps you're a risk taker who likes to throw the long bomb! Knowing your opponents tendencies, calling the right plays and managing the clock could be the difference between winning and losing the championship!

  • Who Does That - Lisa Tyson: 6:45 - 8:30

    Who Does That We believe that with technology playing such a huge role in our societies, it is becoming more and more difficult to find opportunities to connect. In fact, lack of relationship is a key challenge that we face in the twenty first century. Even when families and friends are together, many are distracted by television, laptops, and smartphones… and through a structured discovery process spanning over a decade, we have created a game which we believe can be a solution. Who Does That is an exploration game that's unique each time you play. Our unique game cards include over 400 dynamic questions that provide an opportunity to develop deeper relationships while sharing surprising dialogue and laughter in a fun and competitive setting. The environment that results, creates a priceless atmosphere of trust and respect among the players. Who Does That promotes communication, discovery, curiosity and discussion across all forms of home groups, business trainings, conferences, retreats, and can even be used among students in classrooms! Groups could range from small families around the kitchen table, to educators at staff developments, employees and business associates in staff meetings, small home or youth groups meeting on couches, and team building circles at conferences. Who Does That could be played at a Friday night party in a home or college dorm or at a weekend barb-e-que among friends, or a large family gathering. Regardless of how well or..not-so-well you know your opponents, the game brings an interesting and deep dimension to all who take the challenge to play. Outsmart your opponents with strategic gameplay that will question even those with the best of memories. Join the adventure and learn with this FUN, new game!

Each body at your feet and every turn around the arena is another vote in your pocket. Get rid of the opposing Presidents by killing them, corrupting them, or having them dragged away kicking and screaming. Survive the carnage by dodging, bribing, and making treaties with your opponents. Your own President may be lost in the fight, but another will always rise up to take their place. Presidential Knife Fight brings long-dead Presidents back to life for ruthless combat and historical satire in a card game for 3-6 players. The first 43 Presidents- George Washington through George W. Bush, are all represented in card form, each with a unique ability based on their time in office. Each player begins the game with 3 President cards and gets to choose which order to play them. Maybe George Washington to go first, then Bill Clinton to escape every danger, and clean up with Teddy Roosevelt, the unstoppable killing machine. Gain votes by killing opposing Presidents, surviving a full turn around the table, or through special abilities. Get 5 votes to win the game and become Supreme President of These United States! Each turn, a player gets 3 actions which they can spend on stabbing their enemies, drawing cards, playing cards, or using their presidential ability; allowing them to build their turn as offensively or defensively as they'd like. Presidents can die from wounds or be thrown out of office from corruption, but dead players re-enter the fight with a new President at the start of their next turn, ensuring no one is out for too long. Players use a shared deck of Action cards, filled with Attacks to kill your enemies, Reactions to keep you alive, and Executive Actions to change up the game. Steal someone's cards with the Patriot Act, have your Scapegoat take the fall for you, or rig the re-election to make sure you never lose!
