Major Events for 2018

These are the must plays for 2018. I am expecting these games will take a long time to play or be difficult to recruit players to play. Listing in advance so as to achieve the best result.

Trying to keep the list short because I still want to get better at xx.

Not that big a deal really, 5 players max, can be done in a normal weekend session with little to no prep.

We got through the short game 3 players in <5 hours with rules explanation.

Mr. Dunham
Mr. Groo
Mr. Hrabak
Mr. Wasserman
Mr. Wilson

Long day (10 hours expected) hopefully in the Spring. Players must be trained on 1849 first. Otherwise not difficult.

Mr. Wasserman
Mr. Dunham
Mr. Wilson

1 or 2 slots open depending on time allowed and skill level.

Assuming this goes well I would like to play again. Sits up to 7 playable in a normal weekend session. Teaching/understanding is a bear, and the procedures are a bit of a grind, but the game play itself is not difficult.

Could squeeze in a game on a weeknight ... maybe.

We all bought it after all... Easily finished in a normal weekend session.

I reckon this is a once a year kind of deal.

Expect a normal weekend session. Not especially hard, I just forget about it all the time. Need to learn the rules.

Eklundfest 2018!

Especially with the Megafauna 2 on the way, I would love to hold a mini-con, especially for those games we play the least. Consider taking a long weekend, or maybe getting people to take Friday/Monday off for the special event.

BIOS: Origins
Neanderthal
Pax Pamir
Bios: Megafauna (Second Edition)
Origins: How We Became Human

Running out of space here, but I would like to do it again. 3 players could do this in an evening.

Having played this at the very end of the year I would love to give it some more attention; it is short enough to pair with another game on a normal weekend gameday or fit in an evening (although getting 5 players together may be tough).
