At the start of the month, it’s one of Europe’s biggest tabletop game expos as UKGE heads to Birmingham. Geek Native will be there.
Free League Publishing and UKGE have announced an 18+ masters tournament for the Alien RPG. Competitive RPG playing? It seems so, but surely that’s possible with Alien RPG cinematic mode, where few characters make it to the end!
The first round of the inaugural masters will happen on Saturday and start with six tables of players making their way through the same scenario. UKGE will provide GMs, and at the end, each table of players votes for who think they think is their best player. It’s a sort of collective competitive RPG.
The winners of those votes all get specialist Alien dice and move through to the next round.
Round two of the Alien Masters tournament happens on the same day but at an undisclosed location within the expo, and a never-seen-before scenario will be used.
The GM for this round is Fiona Howat, host of What Am I Rolling and the DM’s Book Club.
Fiona’s round ends with another vote from the players on who they think was their best. That winner picks up a collection of Alien merch from Free League, including the core rules, the starter set and the modules Heart of Darkness and Destroyer of Worlds.
Tickets cost £5 and can be bought from UK Games Expo.co.uk. At the time of writing, there are 24 left.
