This is just a list of games that people attending the Iowa City Game Day would like to play or will be bringing.

The purpose is to eliminate duplicate games showing up and also to see what people want to play.

Feel free to add any games you want to try or want to bring by to share!

Hey Everyone,

Man! October is just flying by. So fast, that we forgot to plan a game day! Now with Halloween on a Saturday, school in full swing (or not if you have H1N1) and the snows of November (or is it October!?) fast approaching, we'd like to invite you to our next Iowa City Game Day on Saturday, November 14th.

We'll get started at about 11:00 am and go until sometime in the evening. Come by whenever you can and stay until whenever you'd like (it's not uncommon for gaming to last into the night).

We are continuing our tradition of bringing a non-perishable food item for a donation to the Johnson County Crisis Center, as a form of admission. They are specifically looking for soups, pasta, tomato sauce, even toilet paper and diapers. They have been suffering a bit as certain items are in short supply. Check their site to see what they most need. This is a way for us all to contribute a little bit toward their efforts of helping people in our area.

For each donation item you bring, you will receive a raffle ticket for games that we'll raffle off (probably about 5:00 pm). For November, I have no idea which game or games will be the raffle prizes, so you'll just have to come play some games to find out (and have a chance to win).

We'll have some snacks and drinks available. Feel free to bring something to share if you'd like. We'll probably do a Chili for dinner.

Feel free to bring any games you'd like to play. If you want to plan which games you'd like to play or don't want to bring games that other people are going to bring, please tell us by adding to or checking this geeklist to see which games people are interested in playing.

You're welcome to bring a friend (or two)! RSVP is appreciated but not required.

Also, Norah (our 2 year-old) will be around, so if you have kids that wouldn't mind hanging out with her, they are welcome to come, too.

If you would like to be removed from future random gaming invites, please let me know and I'll take you off this list.

Address:
202 Linden Ct.
Iowa City, IA 52245

Phone: 319-351-4896

Hope to see you there!

James and Chiara


I know, I know, November 14th is a long way off, but in the mean time, check out the Wednesday night gaming at Critical Hit Games to get in your fill.

Sort of a Thanksgiving theme I only have played this once, 3 or 4 years ago. I remember I liked it, but can't remember why

Anyway, I'll reread the rules and bring it on the 14th.

We also weren't able to do an Oct game day. Very sad.

I just got this in the mail yesterday, so I'm itching to give it a try. By the way, I'll probably be at CHG for the one and only time this fall next Wed the 21st. I'm speaking at the U of I until about 6:45 so I should be there at about 7.

I'm sure it will get a workout at the AMSP, but this was just tempting all last night while we played Age of Steam. I'm glad I got it, though. It will really increase the fun factor I think.

Another new one that I'm eager to try. Looks good but I'm curious to see if it will have any lasting power or just be another decent euro that gets played for a while and then forgotten.

I had fun playing Agricola at Thies' last game day (I missed the customary geeklist, Thies--but I know it takes some work to post them. ). I'd like to play again!

I don't own this, but I'd like to play it if someone was to bring it. We can pretend the gangsters are meeting in a train yard, if that helps keep with the train theme that seems to be emerging.

Last week I made my own copy of 18AL. I used Koryo's redesign, and this will be easy to pack because the box is currently a CopyWorks bag. Oh, and I will need someone to teach me how to play. whistle

I pre-ordered this game, but don't know if it will be out in time for the game day. It looks like a quick, fun market speculation game, based on everyone's favorite economic bubble, the titular Tulipmania of 1637.
