The links below Events in the sidebar to the right will take you to pages listing all the events scheduled for this year’s Northeast Wars.
Board games are those games that involve some sort of broad, flat surface for placing pieces, tracking score or more. Popular examples include Settlers of Catan, Puerto Rico and Descent: Journeys in the Dark.
Card games encompass both collectible games, like Magic: The Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh!, and non-collectible games, such as Munchkin and Fluxx.
Miniatures games are characterized as games involving scale models representing forces in an armed conflict, often placed in similarly scaled terrain to simulate an entire battle or skirmish. Notable examples include Warhammer 40,000, Warmachine and Flames of War.
Panels aren’t games, per se, but events intended to educate and foster discussion, often moderated by someone with extended or expert knowledge on the topic in question. Common subjects include game mastering techniques, publishing games and fields related to gaming, such as history or writing.
Roleplaying games are a more mentally oriented form of game, where players control the actions of characters in a shared world moderated by a GM. The best known roleplaying games include Dungeons & Dragons, Call of Cthulhu and Shadowrun.
