This is a list of games that I either played or sat down and got a demo of at a designer's or publisher's booth at BGG.CON 2013. It's not a list of games that I actually bought. I picked up several more/other games that we're already on my 'buy' list that I didn't get a chance to play or even open yet.

First time I ever played this one. I have played the original board game version once before and was really looking forward to checking this one out. I manned the shields, tractor beam, and navigation. My ship survived (hooray!).

We played with 3 people per side which I thought was pretty good. I think with more some people might just be sitting around waiting for a chance to do something. I think the busiest stations were navigation and weapons, other than the captain that is.

My friend Roland bought this one after getting a demo at the booth and then we played it with some other people we met. Lot's of fun! I'm looking forward to checking out the other cards since we only played the base game.

I brought this one with me because it's a great filler game. I think the Zombies like me a little TOO much though.

Make sure you read the rules carefully, and then read them again. We played this one twice because we figured out that we played it wrong the first time.

Having to constantly look up the card translations was difficult, but this was a fun deck builder.

I like how there's really 2 parts to this game. First you build up your finances to be able to nominate a Princess. Then, you have to shift gears and focus on adding succession points to your realm in order to get her on the throne. Until there's an English version, multiple cheat sheets are an absolute must. Trying to share one sheet really slows the game down. I think once you've played it a few times you would remember what each card does, but our first game was pretty long.

A very interesting 3 player game. I played the 'guard' role, but evidently I'm not cut out for law enforcement. I'm looking forward to playing this again as a different role.

My first impression was that it favors the merchant too much though. It seems like the guard and the thief are fighting with each other a lot and the merchant can just kick back and draw treasures and win the game without ever really having to do much else. I need to read over the rules myself to make sure we weren't missing something.

We played the 'big' version of this game that was hosted by Stronghold games on Saturday night. It was fun but party games aren't really my thing.

A very different kind of set collection type game. The artistic style is cool as well. I can't say it's on my personal list of games to look forward to playing again really soon, but I enjoyed it.

Learn how to program cool little robots. The components for this one are top notch.

I was pretty sure I had this one in the bag until my friend started messing with me and 'zapped' my robot making him drop a crystal that I had worked hard to get onto his base. CURSE YOU!!! I think this one would be great for kids to teach them the basics of programming and logic flow. I have no idea what the recommended age was for this but it was a lot of fun and I think you could easily modify the rules to make it easier for younger kids.

Got a demo of this at the Stronghold games booth. I'm on the fence about this one. It was very straight forward but seems to lack any real depth. It's hard to say for sure since we didn't play a full game and the expansion looked like it added some interested new pieces.

We had the privilege of meeting the designer while we were playing who was very nice and explained a few things that we had questions about. We only had time to play one round, and later found out that we had done quite a bit wrong. It looks complicated, but is super simple. The strategy could probably get pretty deep though. I'm looking forward to playing a full game.

Got a demo from the designer and picked up both the base game, the expansion, and some promo cards. I really liked the concept, how the technologies are dependent on each other, and how the 'tech tree' works. I saw some other people playing at another table and it looks like it gets pretty crazy in the later parts of the game.

Got a great demo of this one at their booth. It looks really interesting and I hope I get to play a full game of it soon. I can't really say much else about it right now.

My friend bought this one and it was the last game we played before packing up and heading home. It's a barfight card game that takes place in real time. This was a lot of fun even though I got my butt kicked each round. It would make a great drinking game.
