For those of you who procrastinated and didn't get games you are running in the official schedule this list is for you.

It is also the place to list games you would like to learn / play but cannot run.

Or anything similar

Every Hoopla I have attended I have run this at 8AM - Noon Saturday and I intend on continuing.

Room for 3 more players. No experience necessary (which is why I allocate 4 hours - time to teach). It will likely not take that long

To start out I'm going to just list some stuff under this entry and then if there is some interest shown I'll make a separate entry so people can reserve seats.
*Note - if by some chance there is an interest in several games, I may have to stick to the more popular choices, as last year I got a bit overwhelmed trying to host too many games at the same event.

18AL
"Entry-level" 18xx game for 3-5 players. Would probably take 4-5 hours to play and although I can help teach would require at least a read of the rules beforehand.

Hegemonic
Print-n-Play edition, 2-5 players. Another "4x-ish" game that's more abstract than something like Eclipse. Suspect it would be similar in length.

Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon Board Game
2-5 players. BGG says it's a 60 minute game, that's a total lie, especially with new players. Probably looking at more like 3 hours with a full table.

Fish Cook
Print-n-play, 2-6 players. A really fun card game about sushi that doesn't get enough love.

The Gnomes of Zavandor
A fantasy themed stock/commodities trading game that looks pretty interesting. 2-4 players.

Roller Coaster Tycoon
Been a good while since I've played it, but I remember this one being fun. Auctioning is a major component, where players compete to build the most attractive amusement park features to attract the most crowds. Also has cool 3D rides. 2-4 players.

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Thames Murders & Other Cases
80's edition. Not really a board game, but more of a group think activity. Players try to follow clues given in the game to try and solve a murder - and it's pretty dang tough to do. Has been revisited by reviewers recently due to a recent reprint and has consistently gotten pretty high marks. 2-8 players.

Stack Market
3-4 players, sort of an odd mix of dexterity and stock holding. How successful a company becomes is based on how high the owning player can stack blocks without them falling over - players hold stock in the companies they think will go the highest to win.

Wizard's Quest
An oldie for 2-6 players, in this "Risk-like" game, players are competing to fight their way across the maps through hoards of orcs in order to be the first to find three hidden treasures. With occasional interference from a wizard and a pesky dragon.

Iron Horses: The Board Game
Print-n-play, 2-6 players. Mostly a card set collection game with a stock manipulation. Looks interesting, and I've had a few requests to review it.

One of my favorite games! Unfortunately, it doesn't get to the table much with my usual gaming group... but perhaps there is interest amongst Hoopla attendees?!

Saturday, ~10:00 AM (immediately after Math Trade)

1. Ben
2. Gary
3. Karen
4.

(while it plays 5, I think I'll limit it to 4 as it can get kind of long otherwise)

Sorry for being so general, but does anyone have any interest in playing any of the games on my want-to-play list?

http://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/glsonn?sort=rank&so...

It's kind of a long list, which is good and bad. There's a lot to choose from, but that means there's a lot to look through. Ya know?

Karen and I will only be there Saturday. We're currently only booked for one slot from 10:00 to noon.

Update: Our day is now fully booked/gamed.

Yes, I missed the deadline, so I have a couple of games to schedule.

On Saturday, 4 PM to 6 PM, I will be running Betrayal at House on the Hill. This plays from 3 to 6 players.

Come explore the mansion with me! Maybe you'll be the traitor. Maybe the Heros will win. Either way, it will be interesting.

Hope to have a few others with me.

The Lewis and Clark on Sunday is filled. I am bringing my copy so if there are people still wanting to play, there can be two games going then. I can teach the second one instead of playing in the scheduled one.
Let us know if you are interested. Room for 5 more.

BTW Very interesting race game, worker placement, hand management and card coordination game.

I figure I'll bring BSG Express along again too - we had a lot of fun with this one last time, even considering I screwed up and left out a few cards causing us to end up with an extra cylon whistle (I'll have this fixed BTW - updated cards are sitting on my desk and just need to be cut tonight).
