Ok it's getting darker and colder so we all need to keep ourselves warm by whipping ourselves into a hysterical rant about the games we can't wait to play at BorderCon. List what you will likely bring to play and what you would like to have a crack at and we'll see if we can't match up a people with gaming appointments.

By the end we will all be suitably overwhelmed and only really achieve 15% of our gaming wishes.

But that's how it is meant to be right? cool

Neil's 15% estimate is probably a bit high, but it's something to aim for. On the other hand, if we don't suggest lots of games, there's no point to this list. But is it so important to play everything, so long as we have fun? Could it be better to try for a low success rate, trying games as the mood takes us? Perhaps we could post lists of games we want to avoid, and try for 100% success at that? Confused yet? Thank you.

Greetings.

Will there be another Crokinole tournament? What about Dancing Eggs? I need to know in case we need:
(a) to practise,
(b) to increase our health insurance.

OK then. New(ish) games that I will bring:
Macao: I have played this once so far, so I can't guarantee any expert tips, but I will bring it along and am happy to teach.
Mystery Express: This is Erin's, another game we have played only once so far. Both E and I are keen to play again, and it is reasonably easy to learn.
Ad Astra: Hopefully we will have played this before Bordercon - Ad Astra keeps going to game days and staying in the box, which has to be corrected! I reckon I can teach it too.

Some others I want to learn cool
Dungeon Lords,
Hansa Teutonica,
Power Grid: Factory Manager

And games I will bring and want to play if possible:

Endeavour
Chicago Express
Imperial
The Pillars of the Earth (with expansion)
In the Year of the Dragon
Louis XIV
Vikings (David - are you coming?)

No doubt Erin will add to the list tomorrow...

15% ? Dreamin'...

Edit:
Adding Cyclades to the list I will bring.

This was the highlight of the con for me last year and it hasn't hit the table since so I'll bring it again - unless someone else wants to bring the easier-to-use Moskito or Hans im Gluck editions.

Also 1853, Hansa Teutonica, Chicago Express with Chicago Express: Narrow Gauge & Erie Railroad Company, Steam with Steam Barons, Last Train to Wensleydale and some Ibuprofen.

I'd be interested in learning any of Confucius, Container, Kraków 1325 AD, God's Playground, Homesteaders and Innovation.

A 3-board 15p Fische Fluppen Frikadellen could be interesting if anyone had three copies and there were enough takers...

Edit: Have also packed Palastgeflüster, Cities and Mü & Lots More.

I present this list in the clear knowledge that I will probably struggle to play 10% of the games, but will have a blast anyway.

Bordercon 09 was my first convention and, as a result, the majority of games were new to me. I had a great time and was amazed at the generosity of spirit exhibited by everyone who attended. It was never too much trouble to teach someone another game.

So, this year I'm keen to bring and teach a few games. Check out my collection an let me know if there is anything you'd like me to bring. As a minimum, I intend on bringing:

Dungeon Lords - Love this game (theme really sucks me in) and would enjoy teaching and playing a number of games.
Dice Town - Will be a dice fest as Neil and I play this and Alea Iacta Est at some point over the weekend.
Carson City - Adds fun to one of the great mechanics provided by Caylus.
Ultimate Werewolf - have had this for almost a year and still haven't managed a game.

Games I'd love to play if Available
This is by no means comprehensive. Lets face it, unless you're asking me to play Fluxx, I'll enjoy most gaming experiences.

Grail game
Memoir 44 - Would love to try this game out. Continually hear great things about it but have never had the opportunity to try it.

Light and fun
Longshot
Revolution
Nuns on the Run
Arabian Nights
Alea Iacta Est

2 player goodness
Twilight Struggle - Maybe I can convince a wargamer to teach me this one.
Dungeon Twister 2: Prison - I've heard it said that this combines a dungeon crawl with chess. Now that can only be good.

Thought Provoking
Through the Ages - Continue my quest to experience Vlaadas great stable of games.

Friendship testing
Cyclades - Yes I'm a sucker for great art and minatures
Imperial

Dexterity
Pitch Car - Have been toying with getting a Crokinole board but would be keen to give this a try before committing to the investment.

OK this was originally Melissa's suggestion even though I imagine she will not play.

A Power Grid Fest.

Play all the official maps. It may take more than a day, but we have the time and will rarely have the opportunity!

Update: There will be a microbadge awarded. I am in the midst of finalising design negotiations now. It may not be ready on the day, but it will be ready. The microbadge will , of course, require playing all twelve maps cool

The 12 maps I will be bringing are:
Germany
USA
France
Italy
Benelux
Central Europe
China
Korea
Spain/Portugal
Brazil
EnBW (from Funkenschlag: EnBW)
Quebec (from Mégawatts)

I can also throw in the Transformer Station and Flux-Generator as extra Power Plant cards.

Daughter the Elder (aka the Power Grid hustler) has signed up for this - who else is in for approximately 24-30 hours of Power Grid? cool

In for one in for all devil

Booked in:
Gerald (playing black)
Daughter the Elder

If the rumoured 'Designers Corner' is still taking place, I'm always happy to play people's prototypes. No doubt davidf will have something with him. Anyone else?
EDIT: Hmm... looks like I might have one, if I can find time to make an updated copy. Steampunk anyone?
EDIT: OK. Printed out a rough version last night. Interested to see how it plays.

Keen to play:
Cyclades
Mystery Express
Macao
...but don't own them.

If I recall correctly, there's a stack of older games I need to collect from Neil that might include:
Vikings
Notre Dame
Pirate's Cove
Shadows over Camelot

I'm also hoping that Gregor can bring Palastgeflüster. I can't find that damn game anywhere!

Name the time and place. Said son had never even heard of Memoir '44 before last night, but we have a fortnight and it is going to be time well intensively spent.

Race for the Galaxy - I love this game, own it and will bring it

Crokinole - i love this game too, don't own it but wish i had it to bring it...

Games I am really keen to play, if you are short a player HUNT ME DOWN and I will play unless currently plastering Neil's bunkers with my artillery:

Hansa Teutonica
Wars of the Roses: Lancaster vs. York
Glory to Rome
Die Macher
Twilight Struggle will bring
Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization will bring - maths trade booty, thanks for all the organising of these

Apparently I have promised to bring

I'll also probably bring
Ghost Stories: White Moon*
Thunderstone
Long Shot
Dixit
and whatever else I randomly grab

* If there is room, I will also bring the base game.

I'm open to most other games (particular new ones), but I'm interested in playing Castle Panic, Cyclades, Claustrophonbia, Dice Town and Summoner Wars. I could probably teach a lot of games people have listed here.

Well my travelling games collection is actually more aimed at my in-laws in Melbourne but they (the games that is) will make it to the con on Sunday morning when my wife brings them up. I could bring up a few smaller games from this list by request. So in the tub so far are:

Small World
Dominion
Dominion: Intrigue
Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Mystery Express
Stone Age
Race for the Galaxy
Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age
Gang of Four
BANG!
Apples to Apples
Time's Up!

I could also be convinced to bring down Space Alert if there was interest from a crew who were committed to playing through a bunch of games.

Games I'd like to try? Hmmm... I'm pretty happy to jump in on anything if people are happy to teach. Some games which have caught my eye on the list so far include:

Dice Town
Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization as I've only played the simple game a couple of times.
Die Macher if anyone feels like teaching it.
Formula D with lots of cars!
Ghost Stories

And anything else which I don't already realise I'm going to like.

*** Late Addition: I just picked up a copy of Sorry! Sliders (the first time I've actually seen it in Australia) so it'll be there too.

A bit late but thought I might add a list of games I'd be interested in playing if the stars align.

Bringing:

Vasco da Gama (haven't played so hoping to be taught)
At the Gates of Loyang
Dixit
Nanuk
Dominion - Alchemy
Palastgefluster(I want to be in the gang)
Die Macher (locked in for Saturday afternoon)
Wars of the Roses

Keen to try:
Mystery Express
Through the Ages
Alea Iacta Est
Dice Town
Macao

I'm happy to play old favourites too.

And if there's anything in my collection that you'd like me to bring let me know.

I just popped 2 more entries onto the other BorderCon list regarding Pizza Orders for Friday night and the drinks and nibblies situation.

Check them out if you are interested.

See you all soon.
