In Coup, you want to be the last player with influence in the game, with influence being represented by face-down character cards in your playing area.

The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Northwest Regional Championship at Gamestorm 2022 (as well as a free badge to Gamestorm)!

Players take on the role of dwarves. As miners, they are in a mine, hunting for gold. Suddenly, a pick axe swings down and shatters the mine lamp. The saboteur has struck. But which of the players are saboteurs? Will you find the gold, or will the fiendish actions of the saboteurs lead them to it first? After three rounds, the player with the most gold is the winner. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Northwest Regional Championship at Gamestorm 2022 (as well as a free badge to Gamestorm)!

SHOBU - The 2021 Washington State Championship

Saturday 2PM - 5PM [TCC Lower Level - Skagit 3]

A beautifully crafted 2-player abstract strategy game from Smirk & Laughter. Your turn is in two parts. First, a player may move one of their stones up to two spaces in any direction, including diagonally, in what is called a passive (or set up) move. Second, they take a more aggressive move, which must be the same direction and number of spaces as the first move. It is this second move that allows you to push stones across the board - or off the board's edge. Remove all four of your opponent's stones from just one of the four boards to win. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Northwest Regional Championship at Gamestorm 2022 (as well as a free badge to Gamestorm)!

Outback - The 2021 Washington State Championship

Saturday 4PM - 7PM [TCC Lower Level - Skagit 3]

The zoo animals want to go back to their wildlife habitat. Kangaroo, koala, platypus, emu, and lizard - all of them are in the Jeep, ready to go! Players in Outback want to populate the outback and build many different populations. With dice luck and tactics, you try to fill your board and collect as many points as possible. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Northwest Regional Championship at Gamestorm 2022 (as well as a free badge to Gamestorm)!

Silver - The 2021 Washington State Championship

Saturday 7PM - 10PM [TCC Lower Level - Skagit 3]

Your village has been overrun by savage werewolves, which are represented by the number on each of the cards that make up your village. To get rid of these fanged fiends faster than the neighboring villages, use your residents' special abilities and your powerful secret weapon: A silver amulet. Call for a vote when you think you have the fewest werewolves, but be careful; everyone else gets one more turn to save their own village first... The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Northwest Regional Championship at Gamestorm 2022 (as well as a free badge to Gamestorm)!

Skull King - The 2021 Washington State Championship

Saturday 9PM - 12AM [TCC Lower Level - Skagit 3]

Pirates and other special cards add to the strategy. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Northwest Regional Championship at Gamestorm 2022 (as well as a free badge to Gamestorm)!

Everybody tries to position the spheres on their trays to earn as many points as possible. The task cards indicate how the spheres must be placed to earn points. Complete these tasks while racing against the timer.

Prove to your opponents that you are the master of multi-dimensional thinking!
