I'll be demonstrating Kingdom of Solomon. It is a worker placement game for 2 - 4 players set in Solomon's kingdom of ancient Israel. The primary focus is gathering resources to build buildings and the Temple. As you build buildings you gain options and opportunities for worker placement and productivity. My wife and I really enjoy this game.

Location: Demoland?

Also, I not sure when I'll be doing the demos. If you want a demo just PM me, and I'll be glad to schedule one with you.

Hi, thanks for the geeklist on this topic!

I'm a indie designer and I'll be running demos of my first published game, "What the Food?!" (Funded this summer on KS, and should be fresh off the production line in November). It's a 30 min, fun and light "take that" food fight card game for 3-8 players, set in a high school cafeteria. All the characters have unique special abilities, and there's a lot of actions and events in the deck that make it a different game every time.

Location: Demoland. Exact times TBD. I'm in Weds at 3, and around the rest of the con.

Also, on sale at: Funagain games, exhibitor booth. Try it first at Demoland, and then pick up some copies to share with the fam. I will also have the expansion characters, and KS/convention exclusive zombie character, "Undead Fred" and his mini-game.

Looking forward to meeting you at BGG.con!

I'll be running demos of my forthcoming game from Minion on Thursday from 1 pm to 7 pm, and on Saturday from 1 pm to 7 pm. I'll most likely be in the main game room.

Update: I will be demoing Battle Merchants at Minion's table in the Demo Room on Wednesday (not Thursday) from 1 to 7 pm. Then I'll demo in the main ballroom on Saturday from 1 to 7 pm.

That should amount to three demo games per day. I'll be announcing new games on my Twitter feed, @ingredientx. Come join me!

Session Thursday afternoon at 2pm, and Saturday night in the main gaming hall, right after the drawings. Come by and get a look and if you want to see it ahead of time, drop me an IM.

thanks to the great folks from Ares for getting this game's debut at BGG Con!

I'll be demoing my own new game from Level 99 Games called Argent: The Consortium. Just head over to their booth Thursday - Sunday and I'll be there. It has amazing art work! Check out some of the already completed posters/pieces/tiles/cards. It's pretty impressive.

As for the game, it's a thematic/Euro hybrid a la Chaos in the Old World. You represent a professor in a magic university trying to be elected Chancellor. The main mechanic is worker placement, but you are also a spell caster in your own right and can cast things like Fireball or Tidal Wave to get those pesky enemy workers out of your way. devil

Of course, there are ways to defend yourself and you also earn sympathy when your workers (students) get hurt, but be prepared for lots of fun player interaction beyond spot-blocking.

Come by Friday night at 7pm in the main gaming hall.

Look for the HUGE aerial map that we play on and up to 14 flyers at a time can duke it out with WW1 fighters.

Let's bust some balloons first followed by a 'flight of the giants' bomber escort mission between the German flyers and their Allied counterparts.

5mins to learn, you can come and go as you like and come see these gorgeous airplane miniatures.

Sponsored by the great folks at Ares and the demo is run by 'The Duke Boys'. Lots of fun for gamers of all types!
