September TABSCon is just around the corner (Saturday June 9th), so here's a geeklist for those of us who like to plan ahead, or others who are looking to find players for a game. meeple

Here's the FB page to say you're going, and to invite more friends:
https://www.facebook.com/events/171550293562431/

Math trade:
https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/241078/tabscon-toronto-ju...

If there's a game you have that you want played, or if you have a game request, please add it to the list. If there's a game listed you'd like to join in, please add a comment under that game item (NOT to the list itself, in that pesky comment button at the bottom of the page).

You certainly don't have to schedule a game, and the library grows every time so you don't even have to bring a game, but especially for bigger, longer, wargames or higher player count games, it can really help you get the games you want to the table.

Please subscribe to the games you set up, and to the ones you sign up for, so you can get updates if people post comments. And only commit to games you can make it to - and let the organizer know if you have to cancel. When one person runs late it can mess up a whole day of scheduled games.

To keep things organized, if you're adding a game item please also list the following information:

Time:
Time Required: (incl teaching time, if necessary)
Player Count:
Openings:
Expansions:
Experience Level:
Willing to teach:
(Yes/No/I will be learning this myself/A teacher would be welcome)

Game Copy: (I have, and will bring, a copy.)

Notes:

I don’t have anything particular in mind, but I’ll be there at 9AM and would like to have something planned.

I would like to play any of the following, and will happily teach!

De Vulgari Eloquentia
Nippon
The Gallerist
Lisboa
Power Grid

Reply if any of these sound interesting and you will be arriving around 9:00.

Keen on finally trying this awesome dedication worker placement with the added challenge of the expansion (King's Golem)— if there is interest!

Time: 2:30am
Time Required: approx 30 min teach + 2 hours play
Player Count: 4
Openings: 3
Expansions: The King's Golem

Experience Level: To avoid an overwhelming brain melt early in the morning, I would recommend only somewhat experienced Alchemists sign up for this. However, if you are brave / confident...feel free to dive-in (may need some prep at your end)!

Willing to teach: Yes — It will be my first play of the expansion too but will learn before-hand and should be able to teach just fine. However, someone with Golem Experience is more than welcome to teach instead.

Game Copy: I have, and will bring, a copy.

Notes:
-Happy to take a break for the Bring & Buy if everyone is cool with it.
- Please have the free app on your mobile device (iOS / android)

Player Slots:
1) Kush R
2) SaraCV
3) Duncan McGregor
4)

EDIT: Time Changed to 2:30pm

Looking for one player for a morning game of Through the Ages: New Story.

The alternative if we don't get any takers here is a 3-4p game of Gaia Project, in which case we'd be looking for people that at least know how to play Terra Mystica.

Time: First thing, 9:15am
Time Required: 3hrs, give or take
Player Count: 3
Openings: None!
Experience Level: Know how to play (app only is fine!)
Willing to teach: Nope

Game Copy: I will bring a copy

We'll need at least 4 of the 5 slots filled to make a go of this

I've been catching up on the show, so would like to try out the game, but I don't own it!

If you own it (or can borrow it), and would like to play, I'd love to help organize the game.

If there is someone who has the game and lets me know, I will add the relevant details to this post.
