A science fiction tactical wargame in which players maneuver giant fighting robots ("BattleMechs," or "'Mechs") against each other (or vehicles and/or infantry). The game system includes details such as varying weapon ranges, heat generation, and discrete hit locations (torso, arms, legs, etc.).
The format will be a grinder, where players get access to increasingly powerful mechs and is great for drop-in, drop-out play.

Valor is a tabletop roleplaying game designed to allow players to play whatever character they can dream up. It boasts highly customizable character creation and simple, fun, active gameplay, encouraging players to invest in the characters they create and bring them to life over the course of the game.
Austin MacKenzie and Jenna MacKenzie will be here to teach and run multiple games throughout the day.

Dungeon Crawl Classics
DCC is a classic style RPG that reminds you of the old days when the GM was the players enemy. Join Joe England as he leads you through the Hypercube of Myt. This adventure is tournament style, where you'll be rewarded for surviving, and replaced by another player if you die. No worries: you can always get back in line and try again *evil laughter* (See below for more details)

Evil Dead 2: the Board Game
The officially licensed Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience Evil Dead 2 fans have been dying for--featuring at least 8 custom figures with art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the cult classic film. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.

Level 7 [Omega Protocol]
One player takes on the role of the Overseer while two to five other players take on the role of the elite Special Ops team. The Overseer's role in the game is to control all of the alien denizens and challenges the players face throughout the game. The players are trying to achieve specific scenario-based objectives by exploring a map that's laid out at the start and fighting off the hordes of aliens that the Overseer sends their way.

The Undercity: An Iron Kingdoms Adventure Board Game
This board game for two to four players and comes with a seven-adventure campaign. The players play one to four characters from the Iron Kingdoms universe as they try to weed out a nefarious evil that has been lurking in the Undercity of Corvis.
All players will be playing on the same team and the game requires no game master. The players work together defeating enemies, achieving objectives, and gaining experience that can be used to give new skills to their characters that can be used in subsequent adventures in the campaign.

About the Adventure
Dungeon Crawl Classic 0 Level Tournament Funnel:
Hypercube of Myt
The keep of the legendary wizard Mytus the Mad was razed, looted, and ransacked generations before your oldest ancestor was born. The only reason the chaotic sorcerer’s name is still whispered millennia after his death is because of what lies half-buried amid the scattered flagstones of his long-vanished keep: The Hypercube of Myt. Each year on the vernal equinox, the southern entrance unlocks itself from sundown to sunrise. And this is precisely why you are here now, at the annual Festival of the Fatted Calf. The festival is famous for drawing the curious, the foolhardy, and the uncautious from far and wide to ponder the mysteries of the Cube. After the more sensible denizens of your village begin to stagger home, you and your friends continue drinking grog-laced ale and speculating on the nature and contents of the immutable Cube. Is it a treasure vault guarded by extra-planar forces, or perhaps a gateway to another time and place?
