In celebration of our final countdown to the inaugural Chicago Steampunk Exposition, we are having a weekly drawing until the end of August, for all who have pre-registered for the convention. Click HERE for full details of the Pre-Reg Drawing.
This week, enter to win City of Gears AND Gearworks donated from Gaming Goat Chicago
City of Gears is a unique steampunk game of exploration, area control, worker placement, and engine building. From your incredible Factory, you must race to claim ownership over the magnificent ruins of an abandoned clockwork metropolis.
Each game plays in under an hour, and because only nine of the city tiles (from dozens available) are randomly chosen and placed each game, no two games ever play the same. Each turn, you roll a number of production dice and activate City Tiles, then you move your automaton workers and perform a variety of actions (such as drawing and placing gears to reactivate areas of the city, sabotaging opponents, and activating unique steam powers) as determined by your resources. Along the way, you will develop your Factory with special powers which set it apart and provide you with powerful bonuses. As the city is revealed and its abilities are discovered, players must concoct plans to accrue prestige and hinder opponents so that once Opening Day arrives, they will emerge victorious!
Do you have what it takes to set the City of Gears in motion?
Gearworks is a puzzle-style board game featuring card placement, hand management, and a “twist” on area control. The game is often described as “Sudoku meets steampunk.” Strategically position your gears to fix a mysterious clockwork machine in the corner of the workshop.
Collect parts created by the machine each round by being the last player to fix its various components. As a tinkerer, you can certainly put those parts to good use and create fantastical contraptions!
Will the other tinkerers sabotage your efforts or will you earn the workshop owner’s favor and become the master tinkerer?
All pre-reg tickets purchased for the Exposition by June 23rd, 2019 will be entered into the drawing to win these games donated by Gaming Goat Chicago. We will announce the winner on Monday, June 24th, 2019, and also announce the next prize in our Countdown Drawing!
Congratulations to . . .
