BGG.CON 2013 Want To Play List

Here's the list for 2012 (with post-con comments): BGG.CON 2012 Want To Play List

Other Thoughts:

* Pizza delivery is an option as a change of pace from hotel food (there are a few places which deliver to the hotel).

* There's a shuttle sponsored by Rio-Grade that does a loop of some local shopping/eating areas.

Had a lot of fun last year. Really good late night name. Perhaps this time we'll even play with the correct number of Cylons!

I love this game and it's impossible to find anymore. So BGG.CON is a good opportunity to play.

BGG 2012 Hot Game that I didn't get to play until afterward but really enjoyed.

A "Sim City" style tile laying game.

There apparently will be an expansion out in time for BGG.CON 2013 as well

This is one that Chris' kids would probably really like (also it's just a pretty fun/light game in general).

Kickstarter campaign has begun: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1280624810/the-guns-of-g...

With any luck this will be a new addition to the library in time for BGG.CON

A 4-ish hour Bowen Simmon's war game (the same guy who did Napoleon's Triumph).

I'd love to get at least one epic game going one of the days, and IMHO there's nothing better than Advanced Civilization. I'll bet Bryan would be interested as well, he's said its one that he has wanted to learn for a while.

NT has really fun sounding team rules that I'd love to try. Rules allow for 2 to 4 players per team.

(see last pages of: http://files.boardgamegeek.com/file/download/4karkhxl4r/NT_A...?)

I know we weren't fans of Space Cadets last year. But I've played this and it's pretty neat.

In a sentence, it's Artemis in dice game form, with two teams/ships fighting each other to the death.

Sounds like a very hot item at Essen 2013. Looks interesting -- historical theme with a spatial/tile-laying mechanic of some sort...
