This was to be demoed last time, but the person had to leave for some reason. I'd love to learn it this time around. Seems fun from what I've read.

My son and I enjoy the original. Thinking of just buying this outright, but if I could play it first, all the better.

Never played Union Pacific, but I like the idea of stock manipulation and making moves that benefit opponents - so you better be sure they will end up benefiting you more! The description seems like I'd enjoy it.

Bought this and have played it a number of times, and have taught a few newbies who have all enjoyed it. I'm eagerly awaiting the expansion, but until then, I wouldn't mind teaching it to more people. I'll definitely bring it and make it available.

I know this was just released. Hoping someone there was able to grab a copy. I'm certain I'll end up getting it as Stone Age is a hit in my family, but again, would love to play it first if I have the chance.

Loved Cuba, and I've been enjoying Santiago de Cuba on Yucata. Wouldn't mind trying this one out as well. After I do, I may very well purchase either this or Santiago de Cuba, depending on which I like more. Opinions? Which of those two is the best "Mini-Cuba"?

This and the next entry (Lords of Waterdeep) were demoed at two different recent game nights. In both cases I was teaching other games so I didn't get to play them. Would like to try both of them.

Always a favorite that I've played MANY times. Friday evening there is supposed to be a tournament. If it looks like it will just be a single game I'll join. If it's going to go through a second round because of the number of people... I'll have to think about it... that's a long time that I might have the chance to play others on my list.

This will be shown as well. Always happy to jump into a game of this, as it's pretty quick and provides some good entertainment for a fast card game.

I could print out the print and play of this game and bring it, but reception on prototypes or print and plays is quite low.

Might have a final prototype by the time of the con, full art and bits; I hoping, as I have never seen it yet. I can bring the prototype, but it won't shine like the final with the funny art.

One of the few copies of the print and play in existence. Co-op about the Underground Railroad. It has had a very good reception. Soon to be published in all its glory. It feels like if Martin Wallace did a co-op: very history oriented in gameplay.

I have played a single game of this, but it ended early (in like round 3?) because one of the players didnt quite understand how quickly the game could end if no one steps up to stop someone stretching for victory. I am really looking for a second play.

I will be demoing this myself so I'm not sure it qualifies as a "Game I'd like to play" but I am excited to show it off. I don't think its gotten as much buzz as it deserves, especially locally.
