The Game On! Game Con is coming very soon! We have several fun scheduled events plans, but we will also have hours upon hours of open gaming. One of the great thing about these kind of small cons is that it is a great time to play some unique or longer games.

As far as format goes, please post the game you want to play, and give a brief description of the game. Also try to specify when in the day you are looking to play this (morning, afternoon, evening, etc). If you want to play in a game that someone else wants to play, then post in the comments that they can count you in for that game. Please, try to be realistic about what games you want to play. It is ok to keep your options open, but if there are four games people are looking to play in the morning and you say that you want to play in all four .. . well that probably won't work out well. The scheduled events are the first entries.

The Game On! Game Con is November 15th from 3pm to 10pm and November 16th from 9am to 9pm. If you are in the Indianapolis area (or can make the drive) then we would love to have you!

THIS IS A SCHEDULED EVENT
Event: "Put Up Your Dukes" Duke Tournament
Start Time: Friday 6:00 PM
Number of players: 4-16

Players will go head to head in this new abstract strategy game. This is an easy game to learn, so no previous expansion is needed. This will be a single elimination bracket tournament, and we will cap it to the first 16 to sign up. I think there will be a special promo tile for the winner. As with all special events there is no cost and you can sign up here.

Event: Android: Netrunner Tournament
Start Time: Saturday 2:00 PM
Number of players: 4-20

While this is not an official Fantasy Flight event, we will be using the official tournament rules. That means this will be a swiss tournament. To ensure we make it in time, the tournament will be 3 rounds of swiss and then cut to the top four.

There will be a playmat and other promotional items as prizes. As with all special events there is no cost and you can sign up here.

I think this sounds like a great "con game"! The box labels it a a Combat Adventure Game of daring missions against impossible odds.

This is a RPG/board game hybrid. I can GM the game, but need a few players. I am most interested in playing this on Friday afternoon.

Let's aim for a 2pm start time.

On Saturday afternoon my wife and I are going to play this game (probably the classic version) on Saturday afternoon. If it is just the two of us we will play it, but we would love to have a couple of people join us (especially if you know the game well!)

I would love to spend some time playing a couple of games of Warhammer Invasion using the new multiplayer format. I have decks that anyone can use, and I will happily teach the game to anyone who wants to play.

THIS IS A SCHEDULED EVENT
Event: Yacht Race with Fancy Sailing Terms
Start Time: Saturday 1:00 PM
Number of players: 2 - 6

This game is huge, old (1960), and awesome. I'd like to find 5 or 6 to play. I'd say it would be 90 minutes with rules explanation and actual play. Maybe a bit less. Who wouldn't want to take a luffing jaunt around the fjord right after downing some grease-ball burgers and fries, eh?

I would LOVE to get in a game of this. I only need one person! I will be at the con Saturday from 9AM to 5PM.

As far as length, that can vary. If you are a newbie to the game, we can play an intro scenario in about 2-3 hours with rules explanation. If you have played before and want to play a full game, then you already know it can take 4-6 hours. I'm open for options, and I have the Masters Set too, if you are wanting the full game.

I'll probably get this set up right after Yacht Race so let's say Saturday at 3:00p.

I have a blinged out copy of this one with Hot Wheels police cars, clay-molded donuts (for rewards), meeples for support cops and "street punks" and other fun stuff.

It scales well with any number up to 6. I'd like to play this one on Saturday evening. Play time can vary all over the place depending on amount of players and how well certain in-game events go. I've had games take as little as 45 minutes all the way to 2 hours. If we get at least 4 people then a Dirty Cop could be among the players. :o

I have 1 set of this and 2 complete sets of the compatible Bisikle with enough for up to 8 people to play on some really long and funky tracks. It's a dexterity game in the vein of Pitchcar only you flick a ball with little BB's in it instead of a disk.

I do not know if any other Attack Wings players are coming, but if you are then I would love to get the chance to play a 100 pt constructed game. Conversely, if there is anyone interested in trying this game out I will happily teach it.

Provided I can "craft" this in time, I plan to bring the PnP copy of this Werewolf / Resistance type of game.

Each game takes at most 15 minutes (it's timed) so we can play a few rounds in an hour. I'd like to play it Saturday night and start assembling those who want to play around 7:45. It can play from 6 to 30 and works best with 10 - 18 people.

Edit -- I have enough stuff printed out now for up to 18 to play with a few of the variable player powers. I'm going to cut all that stuff out tonight (yay?!), stick them in sleeves with some playing cards, some broth and a potato, and baby, you've got a stew going.

I will be demoing Stones of Fate throughout the day.

It has been praised by reviewers (Father Geek, All Us Geeks, Cardboard Jungle, Crits Happen) and well received by gamers at Who's Yer Con, Strategicon, Origins, and GenCon.

Planning a Kickstarter in February. Come check it out - let me know if interested or find me at the event (I'll be wearing a Cosmic Wombat Games shirt).

I think there will be some interest in this, either Friday evening or Saturday evening. I also have Factions, so we can go up to 5 players even if they aren't all up to the added complexity.
