Edge of Darkness

GM: CJ Lowe
Type: Card
System: Edge of Darkness
Edition: 1st
Players: 3
Rules Knowledge: Beginners Welcome
Game Content: Mainstream

Edge of Darkness is the third Card Crafting Game from Alderac Entertainment Group designed by John D. Clair. Edge of Darkness combines Card Crafting, Worker Placement, shared deck-building, and a whole new Threat Challenge system in a medium-weight euro-style boardgame of 60 to 120 minutes for 2 to 4 players.

Players are the heads of powerful guilds in the City. Each Guild vies with the others to become the leaders of the City in a desperate struggle against great evil. But the Guilds must also work together because the dangers facing the city can harm them all.

The Guilds exert their control in the city by sending agents to various locations where they can generate resources or abilities and enable the Guild to take actions. Guilds grow in power as they maneuver their agents and loyalists into positions of importance in the districts and organizations of the City. Over time the Guilds can seek to create synergies between the places their agents have been assigned and the tendrils of influence the Guilds have connected to the City's infrastructure.

To win a Guild must have the most power in the city when the game ends. Power is gained having the allegiance of important citizens and nobles, by accumulating wealth, and by undertaking actions beneficial to the City such as defending it from external and internal threats.

Here are some highlights of the mechanics in the game:

1. Card Crafting: Similar to the original card-crafting game, Mystic Vale, all cards are constructed of crafting slips which have game content on 1/3rd of the slip and are transparent on the other 2/3rds. During the game players will construct cards, combining (sleeving) different effects onto one card (ideally in ways that make strategic sense). However, unlike Mystic Vale, the transparent cards are double-sided, and when you upgrade the 'good' side of the cards (front), you also add strength to the 'bad' side of the cards (back).

2. Group deckbuilding using one shared deck: Rather than having your own deck, there is a central deck that all players draw from and discard to. Different players will have the allegiance of different cards in that deck. Using other players' cards means you have to pay them. During the game you can claim allegiance of more cards in the deck by sleeving a slip into the card with your color and seal.

3. Card-driven worker placement: While your actions are card-driven, most costs in the game are in the form of opportunity cost. Advancements don't have a cost, instead they require the use of workers to a greater or lesser degree depending on the power of the card. e.g. many effects require placing or pulling workers from different city locations as dictated by the card effects. Since you have a limited number of workers to use, you will constantly be choosing to forgo one useful thing in order to do another.

4. Threat Tower: There is a Threat Tower which dictates when and who Threats will attack. Cards leave the shared deck and enter the Threat Board, where they accumulate Threat Cubes on each player's turn. These cubes are color-coded, and when a threshold number of cubes of a given color accumulate on a card, it attacks the City. If the color matches one of the players, it attacks that player. If the color is black, it attacks all players!

5. Modular set up: Edge of Darkness will come with 20+ Locations. Each game you use only 10 of these Locations, which can be specifically selected or chosen randomly, making for a lot of variety from game-to-game in the types of challenges you will face and the strategies you will need to employ. These Locations are comprised of a Location Board and Crafting Slips. Location Boards may specify special rules for worker placement, or extend the basic rules with all new systems. For example, a combination of Location Boards can be used to assemble a party of heroes to take the fight to the Threat Tower and engage in a Monster Hunt!

Smash Up Tournament

Smash Up Tournament Rules
*Please note that the Tournament is long and if you don't have time to play, please do not enter.*
Marshalling (Drafting)
To draft, the players are organized into a random order. The player at the start at the order picks their first faction, then the next player selects their first faction, and so forth until the last player in line has selected their faction. Then the selection line reverses so the last person to pick their first faction is the first person to select their second faction. Also at the top of each round, we will go by who got the best scores to choose first then go round robin.

As players complete each round, decks should be separated and factions replaced in the Marshalling area. Each round players will redraft. [Potential language limiting repicking the same faction, or pair of factions.]

During final rounds, players may reuse any factions previously limited in the swiss rounds, but no duplicate factions should be made available.

Playing
Tables will be filled as evenly as possible with at most 4 players per table. Smash Up standard rules are used for game play. Munchkin and Cthulhu factions and mechanics are permitted.

Swiss Scoring
This tournament use the Swiss scoring system. The number of rounds can be limited at the discretion of the tournament organizer. Each round, a singular winner will receive 5 match points. 2nd place would receive 3 match points, 3rd place receives 1, and 4th place receives none. If there are 3 players at a table, there is no 4th place. Places and points are determined just as in Smash Up - if there is a tie for 2nd place, both players will receive 3 match points, the next player receives none (4th).

After all of the swiss rounds have been played, the player with the most match points wins the tournament. The highest cumulative game score is the first tiebreak. If needed, the highest single-game score can be used as a third tiebreak, and finally, the latest round the highest single-game score was made in is the last tiebreak. (Meaning if two players both scored 21 points in their highest-scoring game, whoever did this in the latest round would place higher.)

Rounds and Games
Rounds and games will be broken up based on the number of players available. For a typical swiss tournament, 3 rounds would be held for up to 8 players, 4 rounds for up to 16, 5 rounds for up to 32, and so forth. The tournament can be limited based on time available but will be more reliant on tiebreaks.

Each game of Smash Up will have a 40 min timer. When time is called, the current player will stop what they are doing, even if it is passing out points. A playerÕs turn is considered over once they have drawn their 2 cards and confirmed they are within the hand limit.

[In tables where Madness cards were used, playersÕ scores may change once the game has ended and Madness is counted. VP is counted after Madness reductions have been tallied. If there is a tie for VP after Madness reduction, the player who had the least amount of Madness cards wins the tie.] {I donÕt see this as necessary, since itÕs part of the rules of the game. Once we determine whether weÕre handling Madness differently or not, though, then language can be put in about how itÕs being handled.]

Each round tables will be filled based on the number of match points, seating players with a similar record together. If possible, care should be taken to keep from seating players together who have played previously but this may be unavoidable.

With a 20 person game we will start eliminations on the 2nd round. Of four people per round*
Round 1 - 20 people
Round 2 - 16
Round 3 - 12
Round 4 - 8
Round 5 - 4
Round 6 - 2
