Please take a moment to answer these questions if you created an entry (hosted) OR played in a scheduled game. They will help me in planning for next year, and to pass on some basic usage information to the organizers. Please feel free to include written feedback in the Geeklist comments area at the bottom.

Thanks for another amazing year! See you in 2019!!

It's time for another great year! I hope this list is helpful for your scheduling needs!!


Official Events Schedule:

Facebook Group:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/184114715004724/


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.)

Room Locations

I encourage you to indicate a room and the meeting time. Here is a floorplan of the rooms available.

Mules

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. laugh

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.

Here is the 2018 Dice Tower Library: http://www.dicetowercon.com/the-dice-tower-convention-game-l...

You also have other scheduling options during the con available on the Dice Tower Con App: http://dtcapp.com

Day/Time: Wednesday (July 4th), 2pm

Expected Playing Time: roughly 6 hours, including instructions
Requested Experience Level of Players: Maybe not your first 18xx, but it depends on the person.

*** Just want to reconfirm everything stated above. Since I will now be checking into the hotel on Tuesday night, I will have time to be there early (1:30) to set up. If anybody wants to get there before 2, look for me in Antigua IV. If you have trouble, text me at 954-270-1424. ***

Board Game: 18OE: On the Rails of the Orient Express
I'll be running/teaching 18oe: On the Rails of the Orient Express
This 18xx is one the biggest games of the genre (and maybe any genre). It really is a site to be seen for train games enthusiasts, especially because the production quality is really high. I will be running a 4 player medium scenario.

# of players: 4
Day/Time/Location: Friday @ 10am - Antigua IV
Expected Playing Time: 7-8 hours (6:30 hard stop)
Requested Experience: 18xx Novice (Played an 18xx once or twice before) While not the most complicated 18xx, it is not a gateway. If you understand the 18xx concepts, I can teach you.

2) John Rice
3) Bob Gallo
4) Edward Anderson
If there is enough interest, I could be persuaded to also do a full game. The full game would take about 12-15 hours and I would like to play with at least 5 players.


Event cancelled due to a cancellation and Mega Civ going to 530 AM.

Is there a date/time you prefer Allen?

# of Players: 4
Day/Time/Location to Meet: Thursday at 1:30pm Grand Sierra B (meet there, then find a table to play)
Expected Playing Time (Duration): 3-3.5 hours including teach. Total guesstimate here.
Requested Experience Level of Players: All newcomers in this play. Willing to set up a second play if there is demand.


1. Evan
2. Joshua Free (Persyce)
3. Allen Brown
4. Melissa

Alternates/Second Play - 1pm Friday (I’ll teach but not play)

1. SPOT AVAILABLE
2. Julia
3. Deb
4. Dean B

I'll set up a second play of this where I will teach with my copy, but do you have a preference for that? If you choose a time when I'm booked I might not be available to teach. I'm free all weekend at this point.

Best time for me to teach would obviously be AFTER I play my game, assuming I don't play this before the con. I can probably teach it at 6pm Thursday, 1pm on Friday or 5:30-6pm on Friday, or anytime over the weekend at this point.

# of Players: 6 to 12
Day/Time to Meet: Wednesday 2pm
Location: Outside Antigua 4. Since we need to find 3 tables in close proximity, we will meet there and find the closest available space.
Expected Playing Time 4-5 hours
Requested Experience Level of Players Players should know how to play the game (not necessarily this scenario), and must provide their own investigator decks.

The Labyrinths of Lunacy is finally scheduled to release in early June, and I'd like to try out the epic simultaneous 3 group version of this scenario.

Quote:
Designed to accommodate as many as three separate groups of investigators, The Labyrinths of Lunacy introduces a massive Epic Multiplayer Mode that allows you to share your terrors with up to eleven other investigators. And while each group deals with its challenges separately, your successes or failures will impact the other groups—as will cards like Paradox Effect which create unique interactions between groups.
https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2017/10/20/the-la...

I'm setting up 3 groups of 4 investigators. Each group will need a copy of the scenario in order to play. I will purchase one copy. We'll need two more people that are willing to provide copies. (And a backup wouldn't hurt.) We have enough copies, thanks!

If you know which investigator you'd like to use, you may say so when you sign up. Investigators must be unique per group, but can be used in multiple groups. (So Daisy can be used at each table, for example.)

Group 1:
1) Lynn - Daisy
2) Kenyon (DocLeo) - Roland
3) Drew (Hunter Hawk) - William Yorick
4)

Group 2:
1) Mike W (oldmike) - Roland Banks
2) Jason (travelsized) - Akashi
3) Nicki (PandemicFan15) - Daisy?
4)

Group 3:
1) Stephanie (elstephe) - Ashcan Pete
2) Adam (EclecticGamer) - Mark

This game takes a while so please plan accordingly. If you have played (and can teach) the advanced scenarios, please consider playing. While the basic scenario is a great game, the advanced scenarios seem like they add quite a bit of depth.

Expected Playing Time: 6 - 7 Hours
Requested Experience: All experience levels welcome. I've never played and a teacher would be most welcome.

I would like to learn how to play this game, and I can bring my copy. Ideally, I would like to learn how to play the most advanced version of this game, but I would be starting from scratch.
I am open to suggestions from the theoretical teacher as to how to accomplish this.

Tournament!!!

We are back for the attack. Just like last year, I'm organizing a 16-team Baseball Highlights tournament. I have 11 starting teams and all the expansions, so I have enough cards to support a sixteen player tournament, but I don't have sixteen player boards or or enough meeples to support eight simultaneous games. Somebody else will have to bring their copies or we will have to get the library copies (of which there are two). To be safe, we probably need at least four copies in total just to have enough player boards.

The losers of the first round games can expect to play for 60-75 minutes. The losers of the second round games can expect to play for 2-2.5 hours. The finalists can expect to play for the full four hours.

We will have a new champion this year as BJ from Board Game Gumbo and his son Jack (last year's winner) will not be attending the con. It's a free for all! I'm hoping to have some kind of prize for the winner. We'll see about that.

# of Players: Sixteen
Day/Time/Location to Meet: Grand Sierra B (Meet there, then find a place to set up), tentatively scheduled for Friday at 7pm (Depends on Alex Goldsmith's and Burky's booth duties for Grey Fox Games and Game Toppers, respectively)
Expected Playing Time: variable - depends on how far you go.
Requested Experience Level of Players: Experienced players preferred, but this game is a super easy teach and last year's winner won the tourney having learned the game for the first time 4 days before the con.

My yearly BSG game! We ended up playing 4 during the Con last year with good turn out at each game and had 50/50 Human/Cylon wins.

Don't be afraid if you've never played as we had new players in every game and the average play time was under 3 hours.

Master Architects Needed to Guide the Elves, Dwarves, and Gnomes in the Construction of Belfort! No experience necessary! (You might ask how you can be a Master Architect with no experience... Hey, it's a board game...just play along!)

Belfort is an excellent 5 player game that challenges your ability to outmaneuver your competing architects in acquiring resources, elves, dwarves, and gnomes, and become the most prolific builder in the five regions of the city. The game is both whimsical and competitive. It takes from 2 1/2 to 3 hours to play, depending on the number of new players, but it is a game you'll want on your play list.

Burning suns is a 4x space combat game, it is like a more stream line version of Twilight Imperium with more races and more player powers.
I am willing to teach and we will be playing the "short version" of the game if we have several new players or the long version if we have more experience players

I know, this can be played with less than 8, but it really makes the game much more enjoyable with all 8 positions filled.

I have this coming from GMT. If there is interest, I'll prioritize learning it before the con and be able to teach/run. We should pick a shorter scenario, but it will probably be a learning game for everyone so it'll likely run long.

Having played through the sample game and watched the video, we'll definitely want to devote more, rather than less, time to this. My recco is 4 hours, so I suggest we plan to start at 5pm on Thursday. I'm open all day, so if Neal and Paul you guys want to start earlier, just let me know. We can play in the Wargame Room (Curacao or whatever it's called).


Thursday
5pm to 9pm


3-5 players.

Player 1: Caleb
Player 2: Neal
Player 3: Paul
Player 4: Rex Gator
Player 5: Paul S

Edit: I should say, this is assuming it comes in time. No reason that it shouldn't, but you never know...

And, it came So now to learning the rules! I recommend anyone wanting to play to watch the following instructional video - very helpful:

One of the most enjoyable games I scheduled in 2017 was this one, so I want to do this again.

The game requires 30 minutes per player to play, and so if we play with 5 players, we'll need to allow 3 hours, including teaching time. No experience is required. If you happen to be familiar with Agricola, this game will take you 5 minutes to catch on, but even without Agricola experience, it is easy to learn, although difficult to master the resource management challenges.

Time: Thursday, July 5, 1:00 - (time change is official)
