Video: TNTM – Is it a Game or Is it an Activity

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines game as an activity engaged in for diversion or amusement. It also says game is a physical or mental competition conducted according to rules with the participants in direct opposition to each other.

Trevor and Danny discuss these two different aspects of gaming.

Are you with Trevor in saying a game has competition with a clearly defined winner, or are you team Danny in saying a game can be an activity where the players just participate to have fun? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Video: How to Play Shards of Infinity from Ultra Pro

Danny from ZiaComics.com teaches us how to play the deck building game, Shards of Infinity, from Ultra Pro.

Manufacturer Description

One-hundred years ago, The Infinity Engine was shattered and its reality-bending shards have destroyed most of the world. Now, it falls upon you to gather your forces, defeat your adversaries, and rebuild the Infinity Engine! Will you survive?

Shards of Infinity combines an unprecedented level of strategy and customization into one small box. Rather than competing for points, players must outlast their opponents and reduce their health to zero, which can be done in a number of ways. Each player starts the game with a basic deck of cards, and they can acquire new cards from a central display of six cards (as in Ascension) and add these new cards to their deck or use them immediately, depending on what they are.

Every character starts with fifty health and zero mastery. On each turn, you can spend one gem (a.k.a., money) to gain a mastery point. The more mastery you have, the more powerful your cards become. This lets even the weak cards in your starting deck become more powerful as the game progresses. If you reach a total of thirty mastery, you can activate your Infinity Shard, which instantly defeats your opponent.

As you acquire new cards, you can employ allies and champions to craft your strategy. Mercenary cards can be added to your deck as in other deck-building games or they can be played immediately from the center row for their ability; this adds even more drama to each player’s turn as a key mercenary flip can alter the very outcome of the game!

Will you neutralize your opponents before they can fully master the Infinity Shard? With careful planning and aggressive gameplay, only one player can emerge the winner!

TNTM: Talkin Table Top – Party Games

Party games are games that are played at social gatherings to facilitate interaction and provide entertainment. Different games will generate different atmospheres. The party game may merely be intended as an icebreaker. It may also be the sole purpose for/or structure of the party.

Party games aim to include players of various skill levels and player-elimination is rare. Party games are intended to be played socially, and are designed to be easy for new players to learn.

Our Top 5 Party Games

Danny and Trevor have compiled their top 5 list of party games.  They will give a brief description of how each game is played.  They both have very different tastes in games as you will see in the video.
We hope you learned about a game you weren’t aware of during this video.  If you find yourself in Las Cruces on a Saturday evening you can stop in at Zia Comics and we will be happy to teach how to play any of these or any other game we have in stock.
As always, have fun and play more games.
