This is my first Geeklist and my first time to attend BGG.Con. After years of finding other things to do in November, and having vague ideas about making some lists, my planets have finally aligned. I'm looking forward to experiencing what will be the largest con I've seen since Origins '93.

I realize it's open gaming, that I'll want to do lots of unplanned gaming and gawking, and that there's a wargame scheduling list. However, my thought is to try to play some longer games that I have trouble finding face-to-face folks for, and these are not quite all wargames. So if you see something you like here, let me know and we'll see what we can arrange (and I'll make time to re-read the rules).

Since I live near Dallas it's no problem to bring these or other games from my collection, so feel free to ask.

Although I love Napoleon's Triumph and hope to play it often at the con, I still have lots of love for BaM. Sadly, no one near me will play it. So it's one of my favorite AND least played games. I'll bring a great scrim-cloth map by Mattia Romano and the dice I use for tracking movement.

Have wanted to play this since reading Churchill's "History of the English Speaking Peoples" earlier this year. I have the latest version. We'd need 4 players.

I'd bring either this or the metal pieces version of regular Dip. 7 players would be best.

An underappreciated classic. Hex and counter but with fog of war.

I don't own this, but would like to play it (4th edition) or Russia Besieged. Thinking about buying one of the two but would like to play it first.

I don't own this, but have played the Valley Games version recently. I playtested one short game with John Rodriguez a while back. 4 to 6 players are best. We seem to always lose the early scenario (bloody Hannibal!)

Speaking of Hannibal, I get to play this often, but would bring it to the con to show off my awesome painted minis. Really enhances the game, imho. Thanks to Curtis Kitchens for painting these.

Also get to play this often, but always love it, and it's also tricked up with painted minis, etc., though not as much as the collector's edition. I always play with the Expansion.

My only Berg game. Fairly intense and interactive game and good as a simulation. Asymmetrical forces and both sides are interesting to play.

I paid $300 to get this painted in Thailand! It's a sight to behold, even if the game play is not as great as I remembered from playing the original several decades ago. Let's try something besides the first two scenarios.
