This list is simply a place for me to track my scheduled and want-to-play games for HeavyCon 2017. Obviously I won't be able to play all of these, but a boy can dream.

My arbitrary goal for the con is generally to avoid random new hotness euros, with exception of maybe Tramways. I don't have a problem with those games, that's just not where my current interests are at. I'm more focused on 18xx/Winsome, SMG, Splotter, and the like at the moment.

So, what'd I miss/forget?

My rule is usually to only schedule one game in the morning, but I decided to be brave and set up an afternoon 1846 session after my 18Ireland game on the first day of the con. That day is also my birthday, so back-to-back 18xx sounds like a good idea, right? This is meant to be a newbie-friendly game, and I'm teaching.

I'm hoping to squeeze in one more 18xx game past the two I already have scheduled. This is probably the 18xx I'm most interested in trying next (well, ignoring the fact that I have yet to play 1830...sigh).

I'm hoping to squeeze in at least one more 18xx game past the two I already have scheduled. Failing getting 1860 played, I'd happily play this again. I've only played it once, and I definitely want to spend more time with it.

Opening the con with this "hotness" 18xx title. I've played a few times before and have generally enjoyed my plays. Looking forward to trying it again.

I wouldn't mind getting multiple sessions of AIT in over the course of the con. Once everyone knows the rules, it can be played fairly quickly.

I did a little bit of play testing and rules proofing help with this in the early part of its development cycle. I had to step away a bit in the later part of development, so I'm looking forward to getting a fresh look at it in its near-final form.

Always up for a play of this (or the original). Makes for a good filler among the longer games.
