Beer. Nookie. Roommates. It's another Friday night at Chez Geek.  Set up house with your friends – for as long as you can stand them. Get a job – they're all bad. Spend money and your precious spare time to accumulate Slack points. Drink cheap booze, hang out at the cafe, and play with the cats. Do unto your roomies before they do unto you. What other game gives you points for sleeping? Just remember, when your roommate and his S.O. keep you up all night: You can't throw them out. They live here.

We will have a mass qualification right at 11am, followed by taping 6 shows with the top 24 people from the qualification. This event is open to everyone so bring your building skills.

Legends of Kalidasia: The Moons of Verlanda Four

After battling to a stalemate in the Minex system, Surakari forces have expanded their war on the Heragul Empire by attacking a dozen more star systems. The planet Verlanda Four has three moons with each one being home to multiple mining facilities. Cutting off this flow of minerals to Verlanda Four would be almost as devastating as destroying the orbital ship yards which consume the raw minerals. Small Surakari attack fleets have begun launching hit and run strikes on the moons' defenders in hopes of breaking through to the mining facilities on the surface.  Legends of Kalidasia is an abstract space combat miniatures game. The rules are fairly simple and players should be able to pick up the core rules within two or three turns. More information about the game can be found at http://www.kalidasia.com

Annual Dominion Tournament

In this million-selling “non-collectable card game”, players start with the same simple deck, and use their cards to buy cards into their collection from the middle of the table. They go through their deck repeatedly to use their new cards to buy even more lucrative cards. Whoever buys the expensive victory cards first, wins. Winner will be in the Champion Invitational this weekend, and win the deluxe set of base cards with fancy new graphics. You can sign up at Ops to make it easier on me, but if not, please just walk in!

You are zombies, kicking down doors and eating brains. The

you've blundered across during your lurching search for brains. So
bravely you'll go forth, with mousetraps on your feet and a bowling
trophy protecting your poor rotting head.
