This is list for some folks coming up from San Diego who want to coordinate teaching/learning different games so nobody's trying to teach something straight out of the rulebook.

Personally I tend to cap out at middle-weight euro's but I occasionally go for more brain-burning things.

Of course, anybody attending the convention is welcome to join in.

There are other lists tagged with GAMEX2014 so give them a look as well, they may be more to your taste!

Click the green text S just below here to see all lists tagged this way.

I brought this with me to my first Strategicon but couldn't generate any interest after setting it up. Now I have a bunch of local gamers who like these sorts of games so maybe I'll have better luck this time?

We muddled halfway through a game of this (basic rules) only a few years ago but this really seems like an amazing experience once you understand it. Maybe I can sit down and watch a game (preferably with the expansion) in progress for a while and try to learn through osmosis?

I backed this recently and would like to play this one at least once. It's obviously not one of the meatier games on this list!

Played this once years ago. Logistics games fascinate me, and this takes a lot less space in my trunk than R+B.

When did this overtext thing happen? Am I supposed to think of something clever to put here?

I'm getting this in a math trade this week, so I'd love to give it a try. Especially after playing American Rails yesterday.

I got this at BGGCon last year and I still haven't played it! Mark was curious about it, so hopefully we can get enough people to try it. I'll definitely learn the rules ahead of time (which is tricky because there's all sorts of re-written rules to make it better, but I think we should start with the base game).

I'm thinking about printing out the 2014 stuff for this. Does anyone care about this besides me?

The original version, in a box big enough for a baby. Probably need a strong commitment before hauling this pig up to LAX though.

Maybe we should just save it for a Sunday?
