A full day of Splotter Spellen games at BGG.con!


This GeekList is for users who post in The Village Square to comment on games they're interested in playing on Splotter Day.


Update:
Splotter Day is scheduled for all day Thursday in Lady Bird. Current schedule is:
8AM - 2PM : Antiquity
2PM - 5PM : Great Zimbabwe // 3PM - 5PM : Bus
5PM - 7PM : VOC!
7PM - 9PM : Dinner
9PM - 12AM: Roads and Boats // Indonesia
(Games not guaranteed to start on time or in the order listed)
Since we're all friends, my hope is that we can get cozy and play 2 Splotter games simultaneously on the conference table. This will make room for all games listed below.

Synopsis:
Develop and exploit your network of stars, scripts, and screens to make the biggest splash at Cannes.

Variants of this game are widely viewed as more enjoyable than the rules as written. I like this one: Making sure the game doesn't stagnate
