I will attend for the first time in 10 years. I'll be there from Thursday 7/27 early afternoon until Sunday 7/30 in the morning (really Saturday night).

I'm happy to play any game on my GeekList and, with advance notice, can bring any one of them (as long as I have room in my luggage since I'm flying). A sample selection is listed below (althoigh I do not own Vast). Offers to play similar games (thus no monster war games, but always at least a bit of conflict vs other players or the system) are also welcome.

If you want to take on the designer (me) at Age of Napoleon or the Price of Freedom, please let me know.

Most importantly, I'd love to find playetsters for the following games (tall professionally printed by the Game Crafter):

A Mighty Struggle, a grand strategic card game of the ETO in WW2, 216 cards, 12 turns, takes about 2.5 hours to play to the bitter end

The Big Push, a grand strategic card game of the Wsstern Front in WW1, 144 cards, 5 turns, takes about 1 hour to play to the bitter end -- more abstract than A Mighty Struggle, but still hits all the highlights of trench warfare

Capone, a card game for 2-6 players about building a crime empire during the Prohibition years, 36 cards per player, brand new design and not at all playtested, should take 30-60 minutes to play -- definitely at the Euro end of the spectrum (set collection), but there are various forms of conflict involved

PS: I intend to participate to the Championship Formula Racing and Battle Cry tournaments
