Last weekend we had the pleasure of attending one of the best conventions in the Carolinas, MACE by Just Us Productions for their 22nd anniversary. A big thanks to all the staff of MACE and special thanks to Jeff and Ron, for allowing us the opportunity to demo Gravity Warfare and our new dice game DOCE™
MACE (Mid Atlantic Expo Convention) is a table top gaming convention, once held in High Point, NC since 1997 and now held in Charlotte since 2012. It has grown to be one of the largest and longest running gatherings of gamers in the Carolinas. MACE has everything for the avid gamer: board games, war games, role playing games, live action, video games, and miniature games – there is something for everyone. Link to their site below! =D
We enjoyed playing Gravity Warfare™ with several people. Many were backers of the game on Kickstarter and some were new players who heard of it and wanted to experience the game for themselves. We are happy to continue to amaze people with the balancing game mechanic and fun gameplay. =D
On top of wanting to continue to promote Gravity Warfare™, we also wanted to promote our new dice game DOCE™. If you haven’t heard of the game or read about it in our previous article, DOCE™ is a 2-player competitive and tactical dice game. You take turns placing a die on the board with the goal of making a line of 4 of your own dice that add to 12. How to play video coming soon.
We had been eager to attend MACE and run our first “real” tournament of DOCE™. We had many people interested in participating and at the end, 14 people showed up for the tournament and we were happy with the turnout. People all ages went head-to-head in this tournament for the gold! We offered a Gold and Silver die trophy for 1st and 2nd place respectively, along with other goodies and rewards.
After 3 rounds of participants playing against random opponents, earning points every round to get to the top, we found the 2 finalists for the tournament, David (left) and Henry (right). Everyone did very well, kudos to all who participated and who had the courage to compete in a tournament of a game they hadn’t played before. Thank you and congratulations to the finalists who climbed their way to the top and took the trophies home.
I must admit we were pleasantly surprised with how well the game was received and the challenge this game brings to the table. We’re thrilled to have all your support for our upcoming Indiegogo campaign for the game. We are planning on launching the campaign at the end of this month. Follow us for more info.
We had the best time at the convention, met some great new local gamers, and had the pleasure of meeting other game designers and publishers who are also trying to promote their games and be successful. Good luck to you guys!
To wrap this up, the only thing left to say is we will attend MACE and MACE West conventions in the coming years. Great people, great games, great con overall!
Also, we are happy to announce that DOCE™ will be coming out on Indiegogo at the end of November. Stay tuned for more info and to know how you can get this game for Xmas! XD
