It's time for another great year! I hope this list is helpful for your scheduling needs!!
Official Events Schedule:
I've been asked once again to help organize the gaming scheduler for the seventh Dice Tower Con.
Why this List?
This list is to encourage attendees to post & schedule heavier games that they would like to organize prior to arriving at the Con. Due to the nature of Open Gaming conventions, the ability to get meatier games to the table is always a challenge. Often due to the dynamic nature of the attendees, formal schedule, etc. For most Euro strategy games, pick-up sessions are quite easy at an open gaming convention. But by starting this list a few months in advance, players can start reviewing rules, assign players to specific countries/characters/etc.
This list should be used to post open games that require a larger block of time (3-5+ hours) **These are not for OFFICIAL events and games that will be listed on the Dice Tower Con Schedule .
Got a wargame or an old Avalon Hill game that you've been dying to have hit the table? How about the game of Die Macher or Mega Civilization you've always wanted to try? What about a game of Fiasco? This list is for you!
Please also use this list to coordinate informal teaching/learning games for newbies.
Organization of the Geeklist
The games are listed in ALPHABETICAL order so that you can scroll down the list and see if a game you want to play is being organized or not. If it is, you can post a comment showing your interest. If it's not, you can Add an Item and put a game on the list.
It is also usually a good idea to Subscribe to the specific games you are interested in playing, rather than the entire list. This way, you will be notified only when there is a post to the specific games you want, rather than all games and comments.
For particularly organization-heavy games in which players, roles, and other stuff must be handled prior to the con, it might be good to have several entries of a game. You can look at previous years' lists here:
2017 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist
2016 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist
2015 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist
2014 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist
2013 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist
2012 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist
How to Post
Some useful information to include in game listings:
Game Title (added via the Geeklist Item)
# of Players
Day/Time/Location to Meet (This will likely be 'TBD' until we get closer to the Con)
Expected Playing Time (Duration)
Requested Experience Level of Players (i.e. Beginners allowed, Expert, etc.)
I encourage you to indicate a room and the meeting time. Here is a floorplan of the rooms available.
If you are willing to bring a copy of a needed game, please do! Many of the games on this list may be scarce, or not a typical title for the Con library. Obviously, older titles may require a Mule. If you are a local wargamer, or travelling by car to Orlando, supplies such as plexiglass, extra dice, dice towers, are greatly appreciated. The die-hard Grognards probably have their own tweezers.
Requesting a Game
If you aren't planning to host a specific game, but would like to help get it organized, please REPLY in the comments section your request for playing a certain game. You should have pretty good success getting someone willing to set up a game if there is enough interest for that particular title.
I've set up a Escape Winter Gaming Convention guild for you to browse other attendees' collections. Join this guild and you can request games for other folks to bring.
