Announcing our 3rd annual Diversions Game Day on Saturday, October 7! This year’s event features:
All day gaming from 9:00am to midnight:
We’ll have room for over 50 people to play all day! Bring your games from home to share or grab any of our demos and have fun. There will be designated spaces for your game bags and fans to keep you comfortable and cool the whole day.
Designer Showcase with Mark Corsey (9:00AM – 2:00PM)
Mark Corsey will be returning to Diversions for DGD to demo his newest game, Deck Construction! Deck Construction transforms the familiar “house of cards” solitaire game into a nail-pounding, nail-biting competitive challenge for 2 to 6 players. Wield tools, gather blueprints, pay bribes, and battle the tenants association as you build—and rebuild—your way to the top. Mark’s previous design is The Game of 49. If you purchase a copy of The Game of 49 during DGD, you will receive a free 6-player expansion!
Play-to-Win Raffle (9:00AM-4:00PM):
Play a game of Codenames: Duet between 9:00am and 8:00pm for a chance to win a copy of the game! All players earn one raffle ticket after playing and one winner will be announced at 8:30pm. The winner does not need to be present to win. Codenames: Duet is a standalone game in the Codenames series with new 2-player rules and co-operative play!
Takenoko Tournament (4:00-7:00PM)
Come play in a Takenoko tournament for the chance to win some marvelous promotional components for your game! Three to four rounds of games will take place with each game round timed at 40 minutes. The final scores of all your games will be tallied together to determine your final score and standing!
Prizes: 1st and 2nd place will each receive promotional Gardener and Panda pieces with alternate colors!
