Just a list to organize my thoughts about what to try to play at Great Lakes Games this year. If you are going to GLG, feel free to add items. Anyone should be feel free to add comments.

This will also help narrow my packing list for GLG.


Glad to see all the additions to this list! Some games have piqued my interest that I hadn't heard of before.

Here's my personal summary:

Definitely Want to Play (i.e. will actively try to get to the the table):

18xx (One play planned on Sat AM with Sean, Chris I, and anyone interested)
Age of Steam (Rob L, Chris M expressed interest)
Russian Railroads (there should be several opportunities)
A Distant Plain (Aaron and Larry might be interested... need a 4th)

Want to Play If I Have Time:
Indonesia
Continental Divide
1830 Cardgame
Hegemonic
Successors (third edition)
Tash-Kalar: Arena of Legends
Francis Drake
Polis: Fight for the Hegemony


And of course I will end up playing other games too, that is how Cons work. I may discover some great game which I wasn't expecting.

Rules To Read Before GLG:
Russian Railroads thumbsup read
1844: Switzerland
1849: The Game of Sicilian Railways (review) thumbsup read
A Distant Plain
1830 Cardgame
Tash-Kalar: Arena of Legends
Hegemonic
Steam over Holland (review) thumbsup read
Polis: Fight for the Hegemony

Long gaming weekends are an excellent setting for long train games, IMHO. I already have 1 play planned for Saturday morning with Sean and Chris I (others are welcome to join). I would like to get in another play over the weekend, if possible.

I'd be willing to run a learning game.

Along with 18xx, Age of Steam is a favorite that I almost always want to play. I have several expansion maps I would like to try out.


Based on the dance card from the tool that Chris L shared (http://bloodbowldigital.com/GLG11/index.cfm) there are at least 3 interested in this at GLG.

I like it best with 4, but it is still great with 3 or 5. Let's get this to the table!

This might be the only Essen game that has caught my eye so far. I really like the authors' 18xx titles, so I'm curious about this one. But is it just another worker-placement Euro? Stay tuned!

Joe Huber mentioned he would likely have a copy with him at GLG. Perhaps I can get in a play.

I just picked this up. I've played Andean Abyss twice and I enjoy that. I'd like to give Volume III of the COIN series a try at GLG.

Interested:

Mostly, I just want to try someone else's copy because I'm curious. I was hoping someone in the area here in CA would be getting a copy, but apparently, that did not occur.

I really enjoy the base game so if someone acquires the expansion in time, always up to explore this one.

Anyone own a copy and open to teaching it? This is one of two older games that are on my "to try" list.

This is the second of two older games that are on my "to try" list. I guess 2010 is not that old.

Also, if Dan C designs KeyBus, then I am interested in that too.

Want to. But don't legitimately expect to. Not owning it being one of the obstacles.

107 plays so far this year, and no desire to stop.

Especially interested in opponents who are up to speed with the latest and greatest, but also happy to teach new players, or anywhere in between.
