Every year, a boat load of gamers get together in Columbus, Ohio for a weekend of cube pushing and dice rolling. If you're in the area or have some time off, you should definitely try to stop by. It's hosted by the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society (CABS), the same group that puts on the Board Room each year at Origins.

Buckeye Game Fest

Thursday, September 13th - Sunday, September 16th
(Each year there's also a week long wargaming mini-con that takes place within BGF. That starts 9/10)

Use this geeklist to announce and plan your games and events. Just listed a game and include details about how many slots, experience needed, and timeframe. If you want to sign up for a game, comment under that item. Easy peasy.

Have fun!

Disclaimer: Last year this geeklist was run by

I have used his text from that list, with his permission, almost verbatim. I just changed the dates so far. Thanks Dan!
I probably should also note that I am not a CABS member and other than attending Game Fest for the past 3 years, have no connection with them.

Would love to get a full 6-player complement going for this! I am willing to teach, with enough forewarning. I have my own copy.

WARNING: Potentially a long game, especially if learning. I'd recommend allowing a 6-hour window.

I would love to try this out, it looks great, but I don't know if it's my cup of tea.

I do NOT own a copy, and would need to be taught.

I am interested in playing this. Neither my co-players coming with me nor I own it. If someone is motivated enough about the game to teach us on their copy or the library's, it would be awesome and appreciated.

I'm on the fence about buying it because it looks like something I'd like, but gamers I trust who don't like it make me hesitant, so I'd like to get a hands on feel.

So, I have a group of 4 for a Friday gig, or a group of 3 for Sat and Sun. Any takers?

Would anyone be interested in an "all-in" Eldritch extravaganza? Looking for up to 6 other players who would like to play Eldritch Horror with all expansions. I would be more than happy to teach the rules to anyone interested in learning this super fun co-op game.

Duration: dependent on final player count. Potentially 4.5+ hrs.

Players:
1) Lemuel
2) Lem's Significant Other
3) Meitreya
4) Meitreya's plus one (?)
5) Scott
6)
7)
8)

I think six would be the ideal number but will be happy to go up to eight. I would like to end up with an even number of players so I will remain on GM/Mythos duty if we wind up with seven.

I’m going to promote my Events here. As soon as the Event listings go live, you should see these (hopefully all of them).

They are part of my Extra Life 24-hour Marathon Fundraiser. I’m raising money for Nationwide Children’s Hospital, here in Columbus. Details at:

CABS for Kids Extra Life Team

I hope when the events go live, some of you sign up, and join me, and help me stay awake in the wee hours of Saturday night and Sunday morning!

Buckeye Game Fest 2018 - Scheduled Playlist for Sat. And Sun. Sept. 15-16

9am - Roll for the Galaxy
Noon - Codenames
3pm - Tichu
6pm - Dead of Winter
9pm - Terraforming Mars
Midnight - Castle Ravenloft: The Boardgame
3am - Roll Through the Ages
6am - Pyramid Arcade

All games will be opportunities for learning the games. No donation required, but certainly welcome! My goal is $1000.00. I’m halfway there. Every little bit helps! See you at BGF!!!

I bought Battlestar Galactica at the BGF consignment store last year and still haven't gotten around to playing it yet. Seems time to fix that.

BSG is a cooperative game with a traitor mechanic; the humans are trying to successfully jump to Earth while the Cylons want to sabotage these efforts. Who can you trust?

The game plays up to 6 players and could take 2-4 hours. From what I've read about the game, 5 players seems to be ideal and 4 hours might be expected if the group is new to the game.

I've read up on the rules and have watched videos, so I'd be able to teach it. New or experienced players are welcome to join. Keep in mind that it might not run as smoothly if we're all new to the game, but I am totally fine with that.

Time: Friday at 8:00 pm

I am an experienced Die Macher player. Have another experienced player ready to play. If there are three experienced players interested in getting in a game of this, I am up for giving it a go. I have the Hans in Gluck edition of the game that many consider the best version to play. I generally facilitate an efficient game so anticipate a 3 1/2 hour long game give or take 30 minutes. I think this game works best as a 9 AM sort of affair.

Am available Friday or Saturday.

Some of my scheduled events (part of my Extra Life support, like Bill above) are just not getting any signups, so I thought I'd add a couple of them to this list to attract attention.

Every year at BGF as far back as I can remember, I have run a game of Primordial Soup, adding in the Extra Spiced expansion for extra variety and to support up to 6 players.

This event is scheduled for 1:00 Sunday afternoon. So come thrash it out with your fellow amebas to close out BGF!

Up to 6 players.
