It worked quite well last month as a third attempt, although (still) several people said they never saw the link for the list despite it being in red near the top of the announcement threads whistle

Better luck this time for them with this, the fourth attempt.

Please do not list game after game, just those you would like to play/organise/provide/teach 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 last Games Day can be found here.

Still not tired of this one. Great game - Feld's best IMO.

Another of those "under the radar games" that is actually rather good.

Well received by those that played it last games day on it's first play, so I am sure that we may well see it played gain (fingers crossed).

I expect to be present on October 19th, so let's see if there are enough interested parties also planning on being present. If you haven't already seen it, see here for more details.

Basically, I'm proposing to run a game for beginners where I will look after all the fiddly bits and keep the game moving so that the players can concentrate on the game itself. There are 4 slots available - we'd be OK with just 3 if it came to it. I'd like to aim for an 11am start if possible (if we manage earlier then wonderful, but it does take a while to set up...).

Prospective players so far include:

This one is starting to command some silly money on BGG.

Must be worth a try and it would be one more of my unplayed games played. whistle

Just been playing this on-line - I'd forgotten how good this game is. I am up for a 3 or 2 player game, definitely not 4 players though.

I include this merely as a place-holder, as long 2-player wargames aren't really the point of EGC games days, however (Russell) if, after the Arkham Horror guys get going and Jim has gathered some players for some lighter fare, we find it's just the two of us I wouldn't say no to a spin of this. devil

Anyway, this is just a place holder for suggesting some meatier games for this Saturday, I'm more than happy to join Jim for a 3-player game of Vikings at some point during the day, but Saturday's are good for getting a couple of the longer multi-players to the table assuming, that is, anyone other than Jim, myself and the Arkham chaps are going to be there

Before adding anything as a separate entry I thought I'd throw a few suggestions out first and we can then refine down - feel free to add your own.

Kemet
Colonial: Europe's Empires Overseas
Rise of Empires
Bushido: Der Weg des Kriegers
A Game of Thrones: The Board Game (Second Edition)
Struggle of Empires
Chaos in the Old World



I was going to suggest Angola but I see it runs to 8 hours shake

8. Board Game: High Frontier [Average Rating:7.43 Overall Rank:878] [Average Rating:7.43 Unranked]

Posting this at the right place this time!

I have retrieved my copy of High Frontier together with the newest expansion Colonization from home, so if anybody is interested I would be happy to bring it along.

It`s the game where you try to assemble a space vessel from real-life patents (from solar sail to Project Orion and anything in between), and then go out and industrialize the solar system.

A Basic Game session (I consider it a tutorial, as the advanced game is clearly superior and not really that much more complicated) would easily fit into a Thursday session, but a "proper" game for new players probably needs a Saturday, to be on the safe side.

The new expansion brings some modularity to the game by the way.
So anything can be done from a basic game session (maybe a couple of hours with rules explanation) through a standard advanced game (used to be 4-5 hours, but always with at least one guy who hadn`t played Basic before), to a game where things go from the first steps in solar system industrialization to turning mankind into a starfaring civilization.

And the new rules can be added or left out, pretty much how BSG does it (eg. by default the game handles carrying your stuff from off-Earth factories rather abstractly. Now there is a module to expand on the rules for freighters, making them one more area of competition).
