Well, looks like we've got a friend who's willing to watch Rose, so that's looking possible - reach out to Tammy as well and see what she's interested in doing.

Personally, I've got a bunch of Zombicide Black Plague and maybe some other games to bring along and have fun with.

And we are selling tickets at Board Game Republic (not a game store, but a board game pub).

I'll be there. Driving up early Saturday. Room reserved, although the Timbers' didn't seem to know much about Con room rates or special block. Maybe there aren't any...

Anyone want to carpool?

I would, but I'm going to be commuting each day to save a little cash.

Sadly, I'm going to miss it - my wife's health problems are certain to prevent me from attending.

I finally went to Petries and bought my B-Con ticket and discovered a nice bonus. If you buy your ticket through one of the FLGS, a weekend pass is only $20!

The downside is that apparently you have to wait until you get your badge on the 22nd to create/register for events on the B-Con website.

I'm glad to report that Sean B has manually added me to the B-Con database, so now I can submit and register for events...like the Math Trade (now at 1400 Saturday).

I submitted free events to schedule

504 and Cosmic Encounter plays on Sunday. Anyone interested?

I'm registering for the play-to-win for Spurs: A Tale in the Old West, but I think I'll keep the rest of my schedule open for gaming.

Lisa and are going. Not sure what to expect from this, but we'll likely bring a big tub of games to teach and play. I will definitely be trying to get at least one game of Cthulhu Wars, despite it being a monster to bring along.

If anyone who is going has any requests from my collection, let me know!

Very cool. Is anyone doing a Virtual Flea Market for the con by chance?

Hey, Brian!

Thought about it, but didn't want to overload myself. Could of, in hindsight, as the MT is pretty slow.

Love to see it, though, so if anyone would step forward I'd be happy to help.

Cheers,
dave k

Well, I can put up a list and pick a time for a physical meet. I'd recommend like 1:00 PM Saturday; a time when a lot of people will be there. Then its just a question of having a space.

I'm in if you do it, I'll add the games I don't move in the MT.
