What's your "must play" game(s) for RinCon this weekend?

I thought I'd start a geeklist on games people would love to get to the table at the RinCon fundraiser this weekend.

I've enjoyed my limited plays of this one. It would be great to get this one to the table with the basic deck or possibly try out an expansion deck.

This was a big hit at RinCon last year and it would be fun to give it another go.

I have a copy of Nefarious on loan from http://downtimefun.com/

It's not in my must play list but I'd be happy to bring it along if others are interested.

I have a CSI order arriving at my house today with Wil's copy of Dominion: Adventures. Hint hint. It's not my copy so there's no promises, but I'll be bringing it to give to Wil on Saturday. It will be there at the hotel. It would be downright foolish not to play it. Foolish. We don't want that.

I have a few prototypes in various stages of development. If anyone would like to try them out, feel free to join us.

Leagues: Episode I and II (formerly called Earth to Infinity)
Players live in an undersea refuge to escape from the apocalyptic destruction on the surface of the earth.
Episode I is a mini coop game with a possible traitor. Players are trying to respond to transmissions from beyond the refuge. Establishing communication could be the last hope of survival, but a saboteur is working to thwart the efforts.
Episode II is a mini worker placement and resource collection game where players are racing to build their ships to reach the source of the previous transmission.

Goblin Masquerade: A quick, micro game of bluffing and deduction. The annual Goblin Masquerade has begun and the Goblin King has invited the two factions of his realm to join in the festivities. Everyone is disguised and the goal is to earn the most gold while keeping your identity hidden. Each player is either a member of the Grunge Brigade (goblins) or Ominous Horde (orcs) and is proficient with specific weapons. A trait is called out each turn and if you have that trait, you may collect gold. However, players may guess your identity and remove you from the game. Of course, the Goblin King himself might have joined the game and he may claim *any* trait (privileges of the crown and all).

I would very much like to play Deus this weekend... I have head mixed reviews, but it sounds pretty interesting to me.

I do not own this game. Will someone bring it, and maybe teach me?

I will bring my latest prototypes, which includes Crusaders: Thy Will Be Done.

2-4 players, takes about 15 mins per player, rondel/mancala game about the Knights Templar and other similar factions.

Move your Knights around the board, fight enemies (not each other), erect buildings, and spread the influence of your order.

I'm pretty happy with this one as a medium/light-ish game with some depth. There are thoughts of making an "advanced" version, where each faction is significantly different than the next, a la Terra Mystica. I'm not sure how I feel about that, I welcome your input!

I will bring my latest version of Odysseus: Winds of Fate...

Odysseus took an epic voyage from Tory to Ithaca. You play as the Fates, who observe Odysseus on his voyage... Not entirely interested in whether he makes it home safe or not, you will bet on the outcome of Odysseus' journey and each of his adventures, and then use your influence with the gods to make sure your bets pay off.

This game has been around a long time, and been through many iterations. I think the current version is the best so far, and I welcome input on what could make it better.

I will have with me my most recent prototype, a route planning game about the Pony Express.

This game takes place over three rounds, or "weeks." Each week players will claim parcels to deliver in a sort of tense "count up" auction (works like a dutch auction, but in reverse), then they must ride from town to town, delivering those parcels and picking up items to help them along the way.

I have had mixed reviews of this... it went over very poorly with a group of designers, but has gone over very well with groups of regular players. I'd love to get more feedback on this one!

So, this was on the pile of stuff to sell and I decided to glance through the rules and ended up playing a quick game of it with my wife just now. Yeah, this is how we're starting off the day Saturday.

After playing this a bunch as an app, I broke down and bought a physical copy last weekend. Would be interested in trying it out as a four player game.

So I recently finished a homemade Crokinole board, and while it certainly isn't the highest quality, I have been having a LOT of fun with it. It's a bear to lug around, but if anyone would be up for playing an old dexterity game, I think it could be good late-night game when people are ready to turn their brains off. I haven't had a chance to play it as a four-player team game, so that is what I'd be most interested in.
