This is a semi-private Geeklist and kind of an experiment in game selection.

The purpose is to do a little advance planning for our upcoming game night.

I'd like to have each participant nominate up to 3 games by adding it to this geeklist (with one exception of a "host prerogative" selection - see below).

Of course, you can add from my collection:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/Major%20Sholto?...

or

a game you would like to bring.

thumbsup Thumb the games you would like to play by Friday at noon and we'll try to sort out the schedule and give people time to freshen up on the rules.

Everyone is limited to five votes/thumbs thumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsup


Small World is a given...so thumbs on that game do not count toward the five.

Criteria for nomination:
it should accommodate at least 4 and should have a run time of 90 to 120 minutes max and you should be prepared to teach it or make sure someone can.

If we have 8 people, that should mean two tables of 4 with 3 game slots each (give or take). So I'll take the top 5 thumb recipients and try to figure out the schedule.

Oh and two more things...

1. Be sure to subscribe to this list.
2. Feel free to bring a filler game (no more than 30 minutes) in case we need to...well...fill time between slots.

I will have to figure out a tie-breaker system...

(EDIT)
Tie-breakers:

Higher rated game wins ties.

I have ALL three expansions and a pimped-out player aid I want to try...so this will be the "Host Prerogative" selection on table one, time slot one.

First three thumbs will join this party.

Just picked this up in a trade. It's a much cleaner version of Age of Steam. Very enjoyable.

Since my Brass nomination was beat down like a bunch of Bivouacing Dwarves in Decline, I'll go with this classic.

And don't ask me why I'm referencing Small World when I've already been locked out of that game.

Another game of Michael's that I haven't played and can't teach (see a theme developing?). I've heard good things from people I wouldn't expect to like this sort of game, so I'm intrigued.

This is sort of like Arkham Horror light. 2.5 vs. 3.4 -- 37.5% lighter!

You take my life but I'll take yours too. You fire your musket but I run you through. So when you're waiting for the next attack You'd better stand there's no turning back.

Almost forgot about this one. You can play team and the games are short enough we could get a bunch in while the other table burns their brains on Le Havre or something. DIE, Emperor, DIE!

And thus, with two entries, I exhaust the list of games that play in under two hours that I'm capable of teaching.

I take that back -- I forgot about Gnip Gnop.

I've never played it, but we did a game of Wallenstein once on SBW and I muddled my way through it fairly blindly. Obviously I wouldn't be able to instruct anyone else.
