We fly out in 15 days. I'm getting pumped. Here's my list of games, etc. that I'm pumped about.

Feel free to comment. Hope you will.

After a couple years of Origins, this will be my 3rd year at Gen Con. Here's my list from 12 months ago: Rob in Richmond's GenCon 2013 Try/Buy List & Other Stuff

Click here for last year's list.

Interesting to look back. I've updated a bunch of the entries lately as I see that I've picked up and let go some of the games in the past year.

We fly out Wednesday morning and arrive in Indy around noon. We used to drive to Origins (10.5 hours), but flying is waaaaaay better in my opinion. Maybe that's just cause I was the one driving.

The taxi line at the airport is cool at Gen Con. Just a ton of geeky dudes. We've shared a cab with a hard core miniatures guy with his special cases of stuff. And we've also been picked up by our buddy

J.W. Marriott (the tall one with all the windows) this year. We've stayed at the Downtown Marriott (the one with the walkway from food court) in the past. Wanted Embassy Suites since we're three guys this year, but didn't get it. My class was silent for the 5 minutes leading up to the button press at noon months ago so I could get my first choice, but that wasn't enough. I put us on the waiting list for Embassy Suites, but no luck. If anyone can help us switch to Embassy Suites, it'd be very much appreciated.

We've played a game of World Cup every big convention. Last year we played on Saturday night, but this year we're moving it to 6pm on Wednesday in order to "Kick Off" the convention. Looks like most players are back from last year. Joel Eddy is defending champ. Ignacy hopes to get past the quarterfinals. Think we'll end up in the food court or maybe Embassy Suites. Would love to find an open conference room somewhere though. Thanks again to Brian for taking care of bringing the game and getting things set up. I'm recruiter and he's games official.

We managed to get a strong group of 8 guys plus some spectators for a reenactment of the 2014 World Cup. Last year we played an earlier tourney so Poland could be included because that's what Ignacy Trzewiczek requested. No such luck this year.

Don't know when we'll get this one played, but I'm really pumped to. I got it at the worse time (when I'm mostly alone with my wife at the beach away from my gaming buds), but I've fit in one 4-player and one 2-player game and I think it's going to be a big hit. As long as a little luck element doesn't drive (ha, ha, "drive") you crazy.

I'm a New York Giants fan (grew up in New York) and they happen to be playing a pre-season game in Indy on Saturday night. Sweet. So while I read comments from BGGers who were pissed that it meant tougher parking, etc. for Saturday I was smiling widely. I know it's just pre-season but it's the Giants and I've never been inside Lucas Field. So for me, it's a no brainer. I am interested in getting some tix ahead of time if possible, but only for super cheap. Otherwise, we'll find some cheap outside the stadium around game time. At least that's the plan.

Where/what to eat? In the past we've enjoyed:
1. Scotty's Brew House
2. Ruth Chris for their Friday lunch boxed lunch special. Pre-order by Aug. 7th.
3. Granite City (a block or two walk) was great for lunch last year. Pretty empty. Dinner was quite as good.
4. Steak at St. Elmo's was pricy but a great way to decompress from the con atmosphere and be assured of calmness and great meat.
5. I like to hit Steak n Shake once.
6. Food trucks weren't as big a hit for me last year. Food wasn't as good and it takes a while to walk around and to wait.
7. I always like to carry some Odwalla bars with me when I need an energy boost.

Here's a cool thing. My buddy John Sizemore isn't coming to Gen Con this year, but he's giving me $100 to surprise him with a game or two. I used a BGG program to find the top 10 users who rate games like he does and I messaged them for suggestions. The game needs to have not much luck and it should probably be a bit on the heavier side.

So far, the top contenders are Panamax and Dead of Winter. They're both listed below. If you have any other suggestions, please post them here. {I've asked John not to read this thread.}

Thanks always to Alan for setting up the Gen Con Math Trade. Over 2800 games from over 200 people. Impressive. I don't think I'll end up trading too much this year. I put up around 10 games, but I'm in the unenviable position of wanting valuable games for my not-as-valuable games. The three games of decent value I have are a sealed copy of Trains and open copies of The Hunters and Navajo Wars. The last two are highly rated but solitaire and that really limits who wants them in a trade. Hopefully, though, I'll make at least a few trades.

We never overbook at a big con. One or two things a day scheduled is our max. But this time we really went low-impact and have zero scheduled. We wanted one thing that we couldn't get (next item) and we got tix to one session (Impulse) that we'll have to skip for the Giants/Colts game. Allen and JT will sign up for a Magic event (not sure when yet).

So..... looking to play a bunch with friends.

We've enjoyed AEG's Friday Night Party the last couple of years and we've talked it up with our buds and online. Well, its popularity was our downfall this time around. Allen pressed the button for event tix the second that he could, but they were sold out by the time his number came up. Oh well. Hope the rest of you who are going enjoy it. And if you know of three guys who want to unload their tix, please let me know.

I've heard that you can wait in a standby line, but I'd rather not plan around it if I'm not sure I'll get in. Also, we've found in the past that if you arrive towards the end of the line you don't really get to play the games you'd want to play.

Already preordered for pick up at the con.

How excited?
10/10 (feel like I need to put a 10 in order to justify the pre-order?)

Comments:
From our buddy Ignacy. Did a pre-order because I still feel sorry for his bad performance (luck) in World Cup Game last summer? Maybe. But it looks like a cool game that will definitely get played at the con.

Buy. I'd pre-order for pick-up (possible?), but last year I found that the Bezier game I bought at their booth could have been had cheaper a few booths away. So I'll wait.

How excited?
10/10. I think this really has a chance to be one my wife really enjoys. She and I love Castles of Burgundy and I think the die rolling, hex placing, create your own board stuff will be a hit.

Comments:
Never played Suburbia, so I'm coming into this game fresh.

This one seems extraordinarily cool. Part co-op, but everyone has his own secret objective also and that might be to sabotage. I'm not a zombie guy, but that seems like it's not a huge part of things. Much more to it. I see this as a hit for Allen and JT also.

This one seems to be perfect for us. I've been waiting for a couple of weeks for the iOS game to come out. It got thrown back from Apple for fixing and should be out any day now.

An added bonus is that it won't take up much room in the suitcase.

So many game themes mean very little to me. I never read The Hobbit, got into Star Wars or Star Trek, played D&D or Magic as a kid, etc. But running a resort seems cool to me. This one's definitely not too serious, but looks like it could be an interesting take on a game like Hotel Samoa.

Not many copies of this one left the seller says. Too bad because at $60 I'd need to try it first. It's a 3-5 player sandbox style old-west game that captures the theme real well and allows players to decide what they're going to do each turn. Love to demo.
