Assassin at Rudicon

You are an up-and-coming assassin in a guild whose guild master has just been assassinated! When the guild met to choose a new leader accusations flew and chaos ensued. Finally, one young member suggested a foolproof method to determine who would be the best leader of the assassins. All eligible guild-members would participate in a game to see who would be the sneakiest, deadliest, most cunning assassin in the guild.

Each player begins with one badge, and takes a badge from each player they assassinate. When a player loses their last badge, they are out of the game. Assassinations are completed by getting a masking tape X on the target. Full rules are available at the registration desk.

At the end of the weekend, the player with the most badges is the winner. There can be only one Assassin!

A short summary of rules include:

Tape will be provided. If you wish to use your own tape, you must have it sanctioned at the registration desk.

You cannot be seen by your target when attempting to make an assassination.

 You must display your badges on your person at all times on your right shoulder or sleeve.

 All disputes will be settled by our Assassin judge.

Artist Alley at Rudicon

The Artist Alley is returning to Rudicon this year!

The Artist Alley is a group of self-employed artists, craftsmen/women and hobbyists who enjoy selling their work at conventions. Some of these things include jewelry, chain mail, key chains, buttons, stickers, written works and commissioned artwork of anything from portraits to full character information sheets. All the prices, products and profits are managed independently.

Here are some examples!



Rudicon Updates Regarding Magic and Pentathalon

Attention all Magic: The Gathering players and teams interested in the Pentathalon!

First, we recommend you watch this video detailing Rudicon from the GameBreak podcast!
http://vimeo.com/60143472

For the Magic: The Gathering multitournament event during Rudicon, we have added an additional event and moved the events on Saturday. The Cube draft will be starting at 10:00 am on Saturday and there is now a Box Draft at 2:00 pm. In a Box Draft, a box of magic cards is emptied onto a table and players have only a couple minutes to grab cards they want to use. This event is similar to the Cube Draft in that you do not keep the cards you draft and also qualifies you for the Oldies Draft. The entrance fee is $5, but the event is also covered by the $25 qualifier fee. The Rochester draft is also pushed until 6:00pm.

For Pentathalon contestants: The team limit is now down to three! The roleplaying game event no longer requires the entire team's participation.

I hope everyone is excited for Rudicon!

Game Showcases at Rudicon 2013

Rudicon is an event about experiencing and learning about new games, and what better way then checking out some of our game showcases! This year at Rudicon, we'll showcase four board games over the course of the weekend. These showcases will be around all day and games should be starting over frequently enough for those who are interested to jump in and play a round at any point.

On Friday, we are showcasing Game of Thrones: The Board Game in the SAU lobby. Game of Thrones: The Board Game is a four to six player game about forging alliances, diplomacy, and military might. You can find the Board Game Geek page here.

On Saturday, there will be two board games. One of them is Charon, Inc. Charon, Inc. is a game in which you compete with other players over territory on Charon, the largest moon of Pluto. Three to five players can compete in this board game. You can find the Board Game Geek page for Charon, Inc. here.

The other board game on Saturday is Dragon Rampage. In Dragon Rampage, three to five players compete with each other by running and fighting a dragon that they have awoken, attempting to collect more treasure than the other players (even by stealing from others). Each player has unique abilities and perks, too, that influence the way they play the game. You can find the Board Game Geek page for Dragon Rampage here.

On Sunday, the showcase game is Battle of Westeros. Battle of Westeros is a one-on-one tactical minis game that allows the two players to recreate battles in the Song of Ice and Fire story. One player commands House Stark while his opponent commands House Lannister. There are multiple battle scenarios which can be played out and you can even create your own, adding to the replayability. You can find the Board Game Geek page for Battle of Westeros here.
