My favorite part of Geekway is the open gaming, Particularly the PLAY TO WIN titles, because I usually end up playing a bunch of incredible games I never knew I wanted to play!

As a way of organizing my thoughts, here are a few of my own games (some older and some newer) that haven't gotten as much play as I'd like....AND some PLAY TO WIN GAMES that have Piqued my interest!

I've only played this one with a max of 3. I'd like to try a game of this with 5-10 cars to see how it plays when the track is more congested.

Another game that just doesn't hit the table very often, but I just love the ship-building aspect.

This one looks like a very interesting new game from Northstar. Will have to seek out the prototype.

The Exploration element of this one appeals to me.

I've heard favorable comparisons to K2 (same designer)

A con seems to be the perfect place for this game. I doubt I'd ever buy it, because it would never hit the table in my gaming circles, but it still sounds like it would be fun!
