Check out the last item to see the staggering total, it had to be over 20 new acquires to my collection.

2nd year going, and am very excited about alot of the upcoming games.

This list is of the games that I will be demoing, buying, and the Events I have signed up for (and my thoughs on them).

I will update during the con about my thoughts, and if I changed my mind on picking up certain games.




Here is my Geeklist about my 2013 trip & what I bought

Here are the games I brought home with me!

(hoping for the painted mini to be available soon)


Student Bodies


Cyclades: Titans


Warhammer 40,000: Conquest



Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) – Manor of Ravens

Only 2 Event scheduled for Thursday, as I will spend most of my time buying and demoing in the dealers hall.



Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) – Manor of Ravens
My first even of the Con, is the Manor of Raven's Descent mini campaign.

Dungeons crawls are my absolute favorite game, and Descent is one of my top games. I will enjoy playing through this....only way it could get better is if the expansion is available for pirchase at the Con.



Library Adventure, The Fun Way to Learn
After the Descent campaign, I will be making my first trip to the GenCon library. I have never had a chance to play there, and have heard it's a great time.

After that, it's time for some much needed sleep before a full day of events on Friday.

Several events scheduled, as I will also try to demo some games in the Dealer's Hall to see if they are worth picking up.

FYI, I may end up skipping out on an event or two if it conflicts with important dealer hall time.


Zombicide
Midnight event, as we try to break out Chuck Norris's twin brother from a Zombie infested cell block. Should be fun!


Draco Magi

Kickstarted this game, and wanted to give it a try before I receive my copy. Love it when I can familiarize myself with a new game before I get it.


Zombie 15'
Another game I would be picking up at the Con, but I have already received my Kickstarter copy. Even so, I don't want to miss out on the chance to play on the over-sized 3D board. Should be a blast!!!



Galaxy Defenders
Another game I backed on Kickstarter, but haven't had the time to play as much as I would like. Looking forward to playing the scenerio.



Sentinels of the Multiverse
Still my favorite Super Hero game, and I couldn't pass up the chance to play the storyline challenge. Looking forward to taking down a few super-villians to end my Friday gaming.

My final day of the Con, more than likely, as I usually leave for home and use Sunday to rest before returning to work on monday morning.

Here are the events for my Saturday!




Deadzone

Came close to pulling the trigger on this when it was on kickstarter, it reminded me of Necromunda. After demoing this, I wish I would have backed it then. I really enjoyed how the game played, and loved the fact that distance is measured by the squares on the gamemat (which was beautiful). Had fun as I was able to defeat the Strain.

I have to say, I was impressed by everything about this game. The terrain that comes in the box is beautiful, as was the figures and playmat. I went by Mantics booth to look at the other factions and terrain sets. This is something I plan on picking up in the future.



Top Promoter

Next was a game I backed on kickstarter, Top Promotor. This was an enjoyable, light, card game where each player is a boxing promotor trying to make the most money promoting fight cards. The gameplay was easy enough, each turn you place on of your fighters at a location where they will eventually fight another fighter. There are cards to play to make fights worth more money, and cards that can affect rival fighters in a negative way. Once a location has a full card (3 fights) then the card is resolved with a simple die pool roll and the winning fighters promotor collects the purse. The promotor with the most money at the end of the game wins.

This was a pretty simple game, but one I enjoyed. I am a huge boxing fan, and it was nice to see a game about boxing....I can't think of many more. If the game had a different theme I may not have enjoyed it as much as I did, but I am glad I am awaiting my KS pledge as this game give me a game to play with my brother (who boxes and fights mma, and a non gamer) who will enjoy this also.




Sons of Anarchy: Men of Mayhem


My last event on GenCon 2014 was a good one. This game was an absolute blast to play, as I got to control my own MC and tried to earn the most money vs 3 rival clubs. Player negotiation is critical in this game, as I was able to finish 2nd while only getting into 2 throw downs. Very fun game, with some backstabby goodness. This one was a winner.

Got a chance to play this, as I was still undecided on picking it up or not.


Glad I did, as this was probably the biggest disappointment of the entire Com for me. The game looks absolutely beautiful, but it is hardly a board game imo. The app does so much of the work that I left with the feeling that the game should just have been left as an app only game. You basically move a figure then tap a few things and the app does the rest as you watch it play out on the ipad. The game is way too expensive for what it does, it reminds me of Skylanders. The physical components aren't really needed, except to add a high cost to the game.....$60 a figure?! No thanks.
