Minnis Bay 2nd May 2014@ 17;00 to 5th May 2014 - if you don't know where either ask or use Zen navigation.

I've cast he bones and it's going to be gloriously sunny So don't panic about tents. They will be fine. I have one, Smok has his and one or two more would be good.

Rules - (Just in case you forget) - bring, towel, washkit, clean socks, sleeping bag, undersheet, pillow, airbed/cot (unless I have confrmed a bed to you), nibbles and due to a glass shortage now - if you have a favourite drinking vessel, cup, horn or paper bag could you bring. Going to apply masking tape and mark everyone's vessel so that they are responsible for it and keeping it clean.

Entry - buy an artist designed tee shirt - Alex is the artist meeple - as I've failed to get the list sorted in time, we may relax this, but there will be some available at the event. Pre-order if you need the masterpiece to maintain your set.

OK the bad points from last year (2013)- the hallway was a mess, we were not supposed to use the back room as a bedroom - Angie is not happy. -- solution the back room settee is now the games storage room, Jonathan will be bringing a pasting table that will act as a games table for 2 or 3 Two player games or one game where a narrow table is suitable.

For sleeping I proved that the tents even in this weather were fine to sleep in, there will be a few in tents. In addition we will not be supplying sleeping bags or pillows in 2014 - to anyone!! (well except me). Please ensure you bring your own - too much washing.


Reminder of what was play - http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/156649/wrightcon-2013-game...

Please state in CAPS as the first word if you have and are bringing, (OWN, etc.)

non-invited postings to the list allowed, please keep it polite cool


BRING and BUY as usual - in a hall - label who, price and any relevant notes (English rules - cribs included etc.).

One of Martin Wallace's more outlier games.

Softer than the likes of Brass or Automobile, probably more in line with Tinners Trail from his ludology.

2-6 players, about 3hrs ish for a full group. A semi co-op that's not really (more like competitive with a shared responsibility to not kill the game)

An Essen release / Kickstarter from last year that's got a lot of bad press from a poor rule book, distribution challenges etc... but it's actually quite an interesting semi-coop game.

Has similarities to Archipelago in that players must fight some common goals in order to support their own advancement.

2-4 players, although best with 4 IMO. Will take 3-4 hours with a full complement. We could join 2 sets and take up to 6p...

A slightly more diverse game from Vital Lacerda (as opposed to the excellent Vinhos - which I can also bring if anyone is interested?), which I haven't played as much as I would like since picking it up @ Essen 12.

It's another game with a common informal alliance approach (as with Archipelago) to fight against a central challenge, whilst advancing your own expertise/capabilities.

OWN - will bring if there are other interested players.

It's not a standard GMT wargame - its more of a wargame/euro hybrid, with some interesting geo-political things going on, that plays in 2-3 hours. I've only played it once, but it's one of the most impressive games I've played in a while.

Also happy to bring it's bigger brother A Distant Plain, but it's recommended to play CL first to get used to the COIN system.

One of the great games from Essen 12, with a slightly abstracted take on city building through tile placement. Also got some interesting spatial elements as it evolves in 3 dimensions.

I've also got the expansion The Experts in the box, and unopened.
