Nerdy City, Creators of the hit tabletop Role-Playing-Game Rememorex, are heading back to the 1980s for the flagship game in their new “Radical Shadows” world: COMMANDROIDS: A WORLD TRANSFORMED! This new fast-paced RPG will focus on the rich mythology of giant transforming robots. An ancient war from a machine world light years away comes to Earth in 1986 as the forces of the evil Nemesite Capacitors clash with the noble Symbitron Transistors. Both forces hide as normal machines on earth, but when bonded with a human pilot, they can transform into mighty robots to wage their shadow war on the streets and skies of our world. Through the power of the Sacred Subroutines, they can even combine into towering Configurations- massive robots played by entire groups of players!
COMMANDROIDS: A WORLD TRANSFORMED wears its’ heritage on its’ sleeve and is a loving homage to stories like The Transformers, Voltron, and Robotech. This tabletop role-playing game places emphasis on the relationships, conflicts, and emotions of the robots themselves, while allowing all the fun of creating wild transforming robots based on almost any vehicle you can imagine!
We will be on hand all weekend long at TFcon Toronto inside Maestro South Studio running demos of our new RPG sensation! Step into the role of a heroic Symbitron Warrior and their young pilots to do battle with the nemesite threat!
Good news fans of the Transformers Trading Card Game! TFcon sponsor Ages Three and Up will be hosting the latest Siege Wave 1 TCG Tournaments all weekend for your chance to win Exclusive Promo Cards and Other Amazing Prizes!
The cost to enter each tournament is $30 and will include all the sealed card packs you need to play (you will not need to bring your own sets). Seating is limited, so make sure you show up early to sign up. You must be an attendee at TFcon and have a wristband in order to take part (wristband for TFcon sold at the door or in advance at https://www.tfcon.ca/tickets).
Grand Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 winners of each tournament and extra participation prizing will be awarded based on attendance, so tell your friends, tell your friend’s friends and gather as many competitors as possible for a weekend of card battling fun!
Tournaments are open to everyone, but some knowledge of the game is required as these tournaments are timed and will slow down other players if you are completely new to the game.
For those who are completely new to the game and want to learn, or for those who just want to bring your own deck and do some casual play, we will have an open play room for you to sit down and play at your own pace. We will also be selling packs of the latest sets (Siege and Rise of the Combiners), card supplies (sleeves, deck boxes etc.) and giving deals on whole boxes in the open play room.
