Here are all of the games I remember playing this year at GenCon Indy, not counting unannounced prototypes. Some were new releases, some older games, and others still in development. Was a blast!

Feel free to add the games YOU played, and what your impressions were.

Played a short scenarios Friday which we played as a warm up to the full game on Saturday.

Saturday we played 13 hours and loved it. Thrilled to have backed it on KS and excited to get our hands on it.

Brought our copy to GenCon and ended up teaching 7 guys how to play (one group just bought the game and I taught them while teaching our group too). Everyone seemed to love it for sure.

I played a 5 player game at the AEG table. The rep who taught it did a great job. I've owned it for months, but was never able to get it to the table largely because I wasn't comfortable with the rules. I REALLY enjoyed it. I came in second place, but felt like I understood what I could've done better by the end of the game. I'm looking forward to playing it again.

I also played a 4 player game of Courtier at the AEG tables. The person who taught this wasn't quite as good, but the game is simple enough that it didn't really matter. Once again, I came in second place, although I was leading through most of the game. The winner was able to complete two large petitions right at the end. This is a really interesting game as well. I was also scheduled to play Dominare, but the demo of the next game I'll list ran into that game's time...

My girlfriend fell in love with this game when it was shown to her at the dealer's hall. She was so smitten, that we went and grabbed a couple of generic tickets so that we could get this demoed. She loved it. I was a little less taken with it, but it's still quite good. I'm sure I need to get into it more to get a full impression. That should be easy since my girlfriend ended up buying a copy (her first "real" board game purchase) at the Cool Stuff booth for $20 less than direct from the company.
