BGG.Con 2013 is a few weeks away. It's time to start figuring out what to play and what I need to be bringing. If you know me, you're welcome to add games to the list. If you're interested in playing something already here, please chime in.

A caveat: I am in the middle of a huge work project that can affect my schedule. I am doing everything that I can to make sure that I am able to be there for the whole convention, but, ultimately, my ability to be there during the week is dependent on the cooperation of people I work with. So, my time at BGG.con this year may be limited to Friday night and the weekend.

Update: 30 October - the deadline for the project has been pushed back a few weeks. I'm shooting to still have it done before BGG.con, but it will not interfere with my attending!

Friday 22 November 1300-1600

I've been a participant in every Spiel-a-thon that has been held at BGG.con. It wouldn't feel right to miss the one this year, so this is my top item for this year.

If you haven't participated before, it is an entertaining trivia-based game show. The proceeds of the show go to a very worthy cause. Highly recommended!

I have managed to add a few new Kanai titles to my collection through the Virtual Flea Market. I look forward to getting a chance to try them out - hopefully, at BGG.con.

I will have Lost Legacy, Say Bye to the Villains, R, Master Merchant and Chronicle with me. I am negotiating on a couple of others.

See below for individual listings for each of these to make it easier for me to remember who wants to play which one!
[update1]RRR will be joining my collection, too![/update1]

This is the follow-up, of sorts, to Love Letter. I suspect that this will see multiple plays throughout the convention.

We talked about doing this last year but, like many plans, it did not happen... Getting sick and going home early will do that! I want to do this. I'm leaning towards doing Frakkin' Toasters (a playset using Battlestar Galactica as a setting), but I am open to other ideas.

Plays up to five, though four is preferred.

Game 1: tentatively using the Frakkin' Toasters playset.

Mage Knight has currently captured my imagination. I've played through a single solo player game so I understand the general flow (mostly). I'd like to get a multiplayer game in (maybe even 2 - a co-op and a competitive.

While this sounds like it could be an interesting game, I am using this as a catch all for games that I have that have not see publication in an English edition. In most cases, these are small card games that I have put paste-ups on.

For the moment, this includes:
The City (Tom Lehmann)
Stich-Meister (Friedemann Friese)

more may be added before the con, depending on some deals that I am working on...

[Update 1]I just snagged a copy of Machi Koro. It's the Japanese language edition with English rules, but I have reference sheets. If I have time, I will make sure to have paste-ups in place. I have heard good things from people whose taste I trust, so I had to bite.[/Update 1]

This is the Friedemann Friese's revision of his only CCG. The revision is neither a CCG nor a LCG, though one expansion (and a promo card) was released. I have all of this in pasted-up form. It's an economic game in which players desire to earn money in order to buy status symbols.

Stich-Meister is Friedemann Friese's twist on a standard trick taking game. It's a fun, wicked little game. Highly recommended! Unfortunately, no English language edition exists. Luckily, I have a pasted-up edition.

I have generally found Carl Chudyk's designs to be interesting and worth trying out. Based on this, I have gone ahead and ordered a print on demand pre-release copy of his latest. They're promising delivery at BGG.con, so I am looking forward to giving it a try.

I have always been interested in Werewolf, but, in spite of having various editions of Ted Alspach's Ultimate Werewolf, I have never had a chance to try it out. The time commitment and player elimination have deterred me, I guess. So this re-think of Werewolf looks like it might be a good fit for me.

Ted offered this available for pick-up at BGG.con for folks who kickstarted the early delivery. I will be picking mine up and have it available for trying out.
