If you're in Southern Ontario, and not too far away from Guelph, please check out www.gryphcon.org.

For those of you not familiar with the convention, it's in been running for over 25 years at the U of Guelph and has been primarily RPG-focused during that time. However, board gamers are rising up to claim a larger place in the gaming space and to faciliate that you can purchase a $5 access pass for the weekend. For anyone driving in from out of town, Saturday is probably the best day to join us there.

Cheers - rob

Re: Board gaming at Gryphcon March 4-6
I'm just in Kitchener and missed last year but want to attend this year. Now all I have to do is remember...

Re: Board gaming at Gryphcon March 4-6
I would absolutely love to see more board gaming at Gryphcon. I missed last year but was there in '09 and '10. I had fun, but it was quite clearly an RPG-centered con.

I can't commit right now but let me extend the contingency chain: if Daryl and Sen go, I'll certainly want to go. laugh

If you are not having fun, then you are missing the point.

Re: Board gaming at Gryphcon March 4-6
If Daryl, Sen, Marc and Micah are going, then I almost HAVE to go, don't I?

BTW, The Gryphcon website indicates that it's from March 2 to March 4.

Great to hear! Please be sure to register on the website so the organisers have an estimate of the number of attendees and plan for appropriate space to be allocated.

For those attending, if you wouldn't mind letting me know if you are interested in either event that I will be hosting I'd appreciate the feedback.

Coffee, Croissants, and Card Games

4S: Space! Science! Ships! Supplies!

Naturally, please bring your own fun as well. You can also register something as an open board/card game if you want to let others know that you'd like to arrange to a particular game.

See you then! Rob

Hey all - just wondering if there's a "Garage Sale" type of thing that goes on at Gryphcon. I'm considering selling some things.

LOL, I don't think they'd be games you'd be interested in, knowing your tastes...more mini-based type things.

I'm checking into it. I don't believe this has been done the past few years, though.

Cool, no big deal if there isn't - I just looked at my collection last night and thought I could stand to make some room

BTW, for any interested, I'm going to bring my collection of games from the Game Artisans of Canada that people can borrow and try out on the Saturday - just look for me. I'll be the short Chinese guy with glasses...


ninja

Game Artisans of Canada games include:

Belfort
Train of Thought
Wasabi
Jab: Real Time Boxing
Sherwood Showdown
Battlefields of Olympus
Two By Two
Undemining
Alba Longa
Godzilla Stomp

I'm sure I'm missing some titles...

I will be bringing some of my own prototypes to play including expansions for Belfort, Swashbucklers, and Midnight Men (if I get all the files printed and cut in time).

I am planning on bringing a prototype Im working on with Al.

I would also like to get a game of Belfort w expansions, Midnight Men, Sherwood Showdown, and Jab in too.

Hoping Chow brings a couple of his prototypes. Im itching to play Primus & Theme Park Tycoon.

Any non-Canadian published games I should bring?

I own & would like to try:
- Battlestar Galactica
- Pergamon
- Cuba
- London
- Luna
- Lords of Vegas
- Ora & Labora
* I don't own it yet - but want to acquire/try Last Will too.

Any of those games interest anyone else? Or any games I own, people want to try?
You can check my collection and let me know.

Also coming for the day on Saturday.

I'd like to learn Undermining and wouldn't mind a learning game of Belfort as well. If anybody has these I'd like to play / learn them: Octopus' Garden, Quebec, Stone Age: Style is the Goal.

I'll bring TtR: Asia, Container, and a few other favorites. If you have any requests, geekmail me.

I haven't grabbed a copy of Octopus' Garden yet, sadly...

I think Daryl C. has Quebec...

I might also bring some lighter games for a bit of silly fun...Cash & Guns, Dungeon Fighter?

Looks like Daryl Chow is out. He just realized he double booked himself.

Can't we clone him?

Or at least get him to mail Primus and Theme Park Tycoon?
