Local Designers Offer Demos and Playtests at Carnage XX

This year at Carnage XX, the convention is pleased to present a selection of regional game designers showing off games both in design and ready for prime time. Some will be available for perusal in the vendor room — Northstar Room, on the ground floor of the Killington Grand — and others are on the formal schedule in the Oscar Wilde Ballroom, just down the hall from the Northstar Room.

Pocket Kung Fu (Demo / For Sale)
The Original Kung Fu Fighting Microgame, 2-6 player

This portable game can be played anywhere, in between other games, while ordering food, or even while waiting in line.

Vigilante (Demo)
1-4 player, semi-cooperative, campaign
In Vigilante, you create a character of your own design by building a deck of abilities, weapons, allies and locations. You and your fellow players work together to defeat the Criminal’s forces and schemes before the “Grand Scheme” timer runs out. Be sure to manage the Public’s opinion so as not to fall out of favor with those you seek to protect — or game over!
