In the vein of Zaphod's excellent idea for folks to post their GenCon schedules, here is a place to do so for WBC.

For example, mine is (very vaguely)

Monday (August 1) Arrival, then Gangsters and Open Gaming

Tuesday: Auction, Labyrinth (Mulligan)

Wednesday: Atlantic Storm, King Phillips War, Successors. Also my Seminar (Ethics in Gaming)

Thursday: Labyrinth (Tournament)

Also playing in Open Gaming,Kaisers Pirates, Dominant Species and more.

I'm planning on getting there precon Saturday for 18XX, maybe jump to VitP on Sunday.

Monday: a bunch looks good, probably San Juan, maybe UP or Manouevre or Stone Age.

Tuesday: Open gaming till 6, demo Merchant of Venus, start qualifying in Ace of Aces, and play Elchfest

Wednesday: Merchant first heat

Thursday: Up Front and 2nd Merchant heat

Friday: 3rd Merchant Heat and Age of Steam

Saturday: Merchant SF/F, Ace of Aces

Whatever games strike my fancy, either on the schedule or in the gaming room, I'll probably play.

day 2: Watch a bunch of demos, and or open gaming
supersar baseball or star wars game not sure which yet?

day 3: play founding fathers.

Navegator(if didn't play ra)

Paul - so you know (re: the baseball game)

It's a free-form event (one of only two like it, I believe, in the WBC).

So, the only thing you *have* to show up for, honestly, is the draft. After that, you can play anyone, anytime, anywhere. You don't need to be in a particular room. Just find people with the baseball button and play a game. The only "deadline" is that you have to turn in scoresheets every day by 6pm. Other than that, it's completely flexible.

I'm running Days of Steam -- and honestly this'll be my first time being a WBC GM. I GM the online Stone Age tournament and have run an online 1960 MotP event, but never live. Hopefully I don't royally screw it up.

DoS is a pretty good and easy game. Hopefully you enjoy the demo and play in the heat. I'm planning on playing UP too and hopefully a round of Fresco.

well it sounds like a good game to learn but not sure if it conflicts with something else I might want to try. I think that's why I didn't place it but it's all new to me so maybe i'll be able to fit it in

Ahhh... that's the nice thing about WBC. If you lose, you just enter the next heat!

Most games run between 2 and 4 heats, and you (usually) can just keep playing. A few (such as Carcassonne) only have one (or possibly two) rounds, then start advancing you in a ladder.

Re: Post your WBC schedule!
For those of you looking to set up open gaming (and have it be slightly more structured than "head to the room and search around") - I've set up a geeklist where people can list games they'd like to play and set up times and exchange contact info (as desired).

You can access it here:
