Ok we always post crazy Geek Lists with wild dreams of playing tens of hundreds of games and not surprisingly we generally fail to meet half of them.

So drop in an item with the 2-3 key games you are really hoping to get a game of this Convic.

Ok the three games I really want to get a game of this Convic are -

Ghost Stories - I just love the look of the artwork. I don't care if the game is crazy hard - I like that. The fact that it can play solo is also very alluring to me. Please be good!

Space Alert - I didn't see this one at BorderCon and am hopeful that someone will bring a copy to ConVic.

Snow Tails - This is one of the more recent racing games that I am yet to play. I'm really loking forward to trying this one out and seeing if I like the card management mechanic.

If I get to play all 3 of these over the weekend I will be very happy. Other games that would be great to play include -

Runebound
Arkham Horror
Wasabi

I won't be bringing any games this ConVic as most of my collection is in storage. But I will be buying some games from Julian!

3 games I'd love to try out at ConVic include:

Battlestar Galactica - I have just finished watching the 3rd season on DVD and have really enjoyed it. Everything about this game seems like fun with the right group. Keen to try it out before adding to the collection

Chinatown - Piqued my interest recently with the re-release. Negotiation game without the angst that can come with the robber in Settlers if people aren't in the right mood from the reviews I've read.

Steam - Have recently bought Automobile and realy enjoyed it. Keen to try another Martin Wallace game. Brass and Tinner's Trail were other considerations.

I am fortunate to be relatively new to the hobby and there are hundreds of games that I am looking forward to trying. While I'll love getting to play these games, I'm likely to be just as happy meeting some new people and playing whatever game's on the table - with possible exception of dancing eggs....... shake

Given I was taught games in most instances at Bordercon, hoping to return the favour and teach a few games this weekend. Will be bringing all my games (not that many) and some that may generate some interest include:

Automobile
Ghost Stories
Pandemic: On the Brink.

Recently acquired Ultimate Werewolf and Cutthroat caverns but they haven't made it to the table yet so will welcome any interest in those too.

As usual, my main gaming goal is to play new games. So feel free to teach me your favourite game.

What should I bring? I'm thinking of bringing Automobile, Acquire(?) and Melissa. whistle

Could someone please bring Loopin' Louie? Nothing better than some LL with KK after midnight... kiss

Am picking up this and Tinners' Trail from Julian during the con, and am keen to give both of them a go. Randy / Terry, wanna teach?

I will be training it in on Saturday so will be limited to bringing in 1-2 games. Am thinking of Chicago Express and Steam; maybe König von Siam if I can fit it in.

I can bring in more games Friday night. If anyone has any requests, please let me know.

Not been getting many chances to play this recently, and I need a fix of rapacious war-profiteering. Anyone interested in joining the Gnomes of Zurich for a couple of hours on Sunday?


It's been around for a while now, but Shadows over Camelot is still largely unexplored territory for me. If someone doesn't mind a bit of hand-holding for a newbie, I'd like to give it a whirl.


I have been trying to get a copy of Union Pacific for ages, and last month I finally found a copy that didn't cost an arm, leg and kidney. It exceeds expectations - I cannot fathom why this isn't in print. Love to play again this weekend.

Otherwise, I will have these with me "just in case": Amun-Re, Chicago Express, Chinatown, Dominion (+Dominion: Intrigue), In the Year of the Dragon, Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game (etc), The Pillars of the Earth (etc), Powerboats and San Marco, or because too many games is never enough.

I should be there the whole weekend, but probably won't bring many games cause I'm on public transit.

I'll bring Glory to Rome and Pack & Stack (which was a hit at bordercon), and Brass: Lancashire, at least. And a few things for the prize table.

Oh-- I remembered another -- Palastgeflüster

I'm not totally sure I'll be up for it, but if there's interest, I would like to try out Antiquity.

Milsims. *sigh* Why did I trust you to have this in stock when I bought it on your site? All I got was a note with 'backorder' scribbled in crayon.

On the very off chance that my copy arrives tomorrow, I will bring it. If anyone else has one to hand, then I'm there.

Also up for A Game of Thrones (assuming there are people willing to take advantage of the teach a newbie), Tinner's Trail (if Julian has a copy for me), and anything dripping in theme.

I'd love to learn A Castle for All Seasons and possibly Agricola if someone is willing to teach them.

I'm also keen to have another go at Shadows over Camelot

I'm reasonably keen to learn this one, if there is someone there with a copy willing to teach. (Actually I can probably organise for a copy to be there, so really just need someone willing to teach)


I also have Escape from Colditz that i would love to learn, so once again will need a teacher.

Other than that I'm pretty happy playing some of the older classic Euro's.

Here's what I think I'll bring:
Code 777
Dominion
Dominion: Intrigue
Key Harvest
Die Macher (you never know)
Taj Mahal
Maharaja: The Game of Palace Building in India

and probably a few more depending on a whim when packing tomorrow.

Oh and looking forward to Pack & Stack again too. Thanks Gregor.
