*POST A LINK IN COMMENTS* linking to YOUR BGG CON 2013 EXPERIENCE (GEEKLIST OR THREAD), and EARN SOME GEEKGOLD! I'll be giving away all the GG donated to me from this page, if I can - so post a link!

THANKS TO EVERYONE! It was another great convention, made so by the wonderful people to attended it.


UPDATE AND NOTE FOR THOSE ARRIVING ON TUESDAY - the wonderful Con people have set up open-gaming for late Tuesday afternoon and evening. Check out this thread for time and location. Cheers!

-----------------------

Hello, Fellow Wargamers!


I always get this list started early due to the sheer number of wargamers that attend the con, as well as the preplanning that we wargamers need for some of our more "indepth" games (some would say "complicated" - but not us!). Welcome back for another year. May you find new friends, reconnect with old ones, and have a great gaming experience. This is list is here to help you do all those things.

I will update the header as the Con approaches with links to other geeklists, so check back frequently.

Returning Geeks. To those returning for another year, there's nothing special between the list from last year and this one, so you can just get started. Remember to thumb the list and spread the word about the geeklist. It is not currently listed on the BGG Con 2013 page. And once it is, it doesn't mean our wargamegeeks will see it. Spread the word. Thanks.

New Wargamer Attendees. For new attendees or those new to trying to schedule wargames at BGG Con, a hearty welcome, and please keep reading.

Why a Wargamer Meet-Up Geeklist?

This geeklist is a meet-up list to help wargamers organize games they'd like to play at the convention. BGG Con runs an open-gaming format. The idea of the convention is that you walk around and meet new people and get games going spontaneously. This works great for 2, 3, and even 4 hour games where the rules are simple. It does not work well for long games or games with complicated rule sets. This list is meant to help facilitate those seeking opponents for (1) rare wargames that other attendees are likely not to know the rules for, and (2) longer, more complicated wargames, especially long, complicated games that require more than two players.

In addition to this, the list is also meant to facilitate the niche group that we wargamers are. The odds of stumbling across five players who all know the 40 pages of rules to The Napoleonic Wars and *just happen* to have seven hours of free time (yeah, right!) just isn't very likely. So like any good commander, such endeavors require planning prior to execution.

So this geeklist allows the wargamers to organize wargames they want to play without having to worry about explaining a game and without worrying about whether they will have enough players.

What The Freaking Heck (Goshdarnit) is a Mule?

Another problem is that wargamers have quite a few games they want to play that aren't in Uncle Aldie's library (the huge game collection owed by Aldie, BGG's demi-god of Geekdom). While the library has gotten better over the years, there are still plenty of wargames that need to be brought to the Con if you want to play them.

So this list is all about finding out who the MULES will be: people to lug the game to the convention so that there's a copy to play. Once you get enough players for your game, talk about who the mule should be - who's actually bringing the game to play?

I should note here, as I haven't in years past, that Aldie has really upped the wargame count of the library, and there are now some long, complicated, relatively obscure games in the library. You would do well to check the library before the convention to see if the game you want to play is there. If so - and if it is not part of the current year's hotness - you will likely just be able to use that copy. ADDITIONAL NOTE: I have been advised by KingMob that there are over 4,700+ games in the library this year, including many just-released wargames.

Organization of the Geeklist

For an idea of what to expect and how the geeklist works, you can checkout last year's geeklist, here. Or you can just read on, where I explain the how the list should be organized.

The games are listed in ALPHABETICAL order so that you can scroll down the list and see if a game you want to play is being organized or not. If it is, you can post a comment showing your interest. If it's not, you can Add an Item and put your game on the list.

It is a good idea to Subscribe to the specific games you are interested in playing, rather than the entire list. This way, you will be notified when there is a post to the specific games you want, rather than all games and comments. This list routinely receives hundreds of comments, so if you subscribe to the whole thing, don't say I didn't warn you.

For particularly organization-heavy games in which players, roles, and other stuff must be handled prior to the con, it might be good to have several entries of a game. You can look at one of the entries for Here I Stand, from 2011. This is a good example. We had nearly 100 comments to organize two (and half) games!

Is There a Format for Listing a Game?

Not really. It would be helpful if you would list a short description of the game, the number of players needed, the time it takes to play, and any other relevant information.

Geeks might want to read the rules and play a game they don't own and a short description might pique their interest.

If you post an item, be prepared to edit it for players so that you can list the day, time(s), players, etc., for a given game as the information slowly gels - this usually won't happen until much closer to the Con, but help us keep it simple and make it easy to figure out the days/times/etc. of our games by posting that information in the item's main body. Again, Here I Stand from 2011 is a good example, here.

Do the Wargamers Have an HQ?

The wargamers usually have a central room we meet in, and last year, we were organized around two large-ish rooms off the beaten path of the con. The rooms were quiet and, in generally, sparsely populated. Many wargamers chose to game in the main room. The drawbacks to the wargamer rooms are that the ceilings are low, and the rooms can feel much smaller than they actually are.

For those interested, here is a map of the convention area where you can locate the room(s) (WARNING: Large File Size PDF): Hyatt Regency Floor Plan.

You can be pretty certain that the wargamers will have some amenities. Convention staff were very generous the past couple of years. Not only did they set aside a Wargamer HQ with our own signage, they also gave us a dry erase board which was awesome for leaving messages to other players. We also rec'd free use of convention-owned plexiglass (which could be checked out of the library), and Mr. Schmittgens, of course, has brought wargamer buttons to hand out for free the past several years.

What Other Stuff Should I Bring?

Convention organizers generally provide some plexi-glass, the dry erase board w/ markers, and room for games. If you live locally, extra plexi-glass is a godsend. Some local players last year (the past couple, actually) offered to bring games for other players so they didn't have to lug it on a plane. Such generosity of this type is welcome, but not at all required.

For general advice, check out the Tips on BGG Con from a Veteran page. This has not been updated since 2011, and I might try to update it for the new space. Even so, it is chock full of good advice for first-time attendees.

I'd like to try a smaller scenario - Alan Richbourg created a shorter scenario that was released in C3i, which would work well for the Con. Not certain about this one, yet, but could be talked into it.

If some generous wargamer would like to mule and show me the ropes, I'd appreciate getting in a pick up game of this sometime during the con. I'm thinking about purchasing a copy, and it would be nice to take it for a spin first.

Thanks.

This was a really neat game, simple and clever. If you are unfamiliar, one side plays both the Western Allies and the Germans on the Eastern Front, while the other plays the Soviets and Germans on the Western Front. At the moment, I have nothing lined up for Wednesday. I can get there by 10:00am, but figure it will take a bit to get registered etc.

Anyone want to play a game around noon/early afternoon on Wednesday?

Description says three hours and that's probably not too far off even including reviewing rules and setting up.

I am local so can bring game (actually, it's a folio game, so anyone with sufficient room to carry a notepad could bring it!).

John

EDIT: Idiot! Originally wrote Thursday, when I already have a game lined up! Fixed.

10:00am (or thereabouts) Wednesday, John and William

Main gaming hall. Over where the chic tables were last year (but they are not coming this year).

You saw that right! Brand new Austrians from GMT games.

A two to four player game of the exploration of the new world. Best with three or four. A classic. One of the best games to come in a S&T mag but I have the Avalon Hill version. I'm working on a random map version along the lines of Source of the Nile

This game should be out in time for BGG.Con. I can probably mule it if the library isn't going to have it or nobody else can bring it. I have no idea how long it'll take to play - I'm new to it too, and I've never played Paths of Glory (which this system is supposedly based on, maybe, somewhat).

Steve's entry is getting a bit crowded, so I'll start another.

I'll be muling my own copy to the Con for a Fri 9am 4p session in/near the wargame rooms (Jonsson & Hobby) for anyone who'll have read through the rules by then.

Any takers?

Scheduled for: Friday 9am
