It sort of worked again as a second attempt, although several seson EGC poeple said they never saw the link for the list despite it being in red near the top of the announcement threads whistle

Anyway, here is a third attempt.

Please do not list game after game, just those you would like to play/organise/provide in the time available, and perhaps a wee bit about what you like about the game that has you want to play it on the games day.

Details about who played what games on the Games Day can be found here.

Still my favourite game of the last year or so. Happy to play with 1 or 2 or 3 other players - it works well, albeit differently, with all range of player numbers.

Almost ignored by everyone when it came out, which was a surprise to me because not only are the game bits gorgeous, the rules simple to explain (which hides the fact that there is some depth to this game),it features a clever variant on the use of the Rondel which combine to provide a thought-provoking (but not to a brain melting/AP level) game that includes a lot of interaction without being confrontational.

Plus it plays in about an hour and is good with 2, 3 or 4 players (there is a view on the Geek that 3 is the sweet spot).

Almost unheard of game (as so many of my collection are! shake).

Check out this review to see why I am so keen to give it a whirl.

Would be interested in playing a game of this to the full 1,000pts rather than just a hand or two.

I have just received my copy so would be interested in a game.

However being realistic I would suggest the base game of High Frontier as the rules are complex.

One second edition, ready to play.

4 people. 4 hours.

A multifaceted sweeping epic.

The original German version of Lifeboats.

Would like to play this before it goes in the "for sale" pile.

Yes, I know it's not the type of game I like, but I am now a reformed character. There was a time when I was spiteful and upset all the time....... angry

But he bits are so gorgeous and the discussions about which boat springs a leak can be painfully funny......

Couldn't make it last time so the Space Hulk lay dormant. Gordon, up for a quick bash on this if time allows?

Would anybody like to play-test a scenario from the forthcoming Volume 3 of Flying Colors, "Blue Cross, White Ensign." Russians, turks, and exploding cannonballs-- what's not to like? Let me know a day or two in advance as I'll need to make up the counters. Could also do this on a Thursday.

At the start of the year i did a list of games that I owned but had not got around to playing: 2013 Resolution - Play the Unplayed List

I have made little headway and with this in mind would anybody be interested in any of the following? If so I will make sure I have the rules down by this Saturday:

Imperial 2030 - Imperial improved?
Fifth Avenue - lowest ranked of the Alea 'Big Box' series - was it misunderstood?
Um Reifenbreite - SdJ winner (1992!!)
The Princes of Florence - classic, IGA winner (2001)
Intrigue - vicious
