I am fairly fortunate, in that I have several opportunities a year to attend multi-day gaming events. There are some games that are best played late at night, or very early in the morning, and other games where the fun-factor is very dependent on the other players.

This is a list of games that I've played just a few times, or not at all, that I'm hoping to play at one or more of the gaming events I attend this year.

Feel free to add games that I SHOULD play, given the opportunity.

This is a great game, but is other-player sensitive.

Another player-sensitive game, but my one playing was a lot of fun.

I *THINK* I've played this one before, but I just don't remember it. I've heard a lot of good stuff about it, so I want to make sure I give it a spin.

I've played 1.5 times. The first time, I was pretty tired but running on adrenaline, and I loved it. The half-time, we got partway through the first round, and someone had to leave. Definitely need to bring this out more.

A fun partnership game. I'm hoping that at the June event, my partner from last year will be willing to partner-up again this year.

I only know one person (well, couple) that owns this, so I'm hoping they bring it to future events, or I find others that have it. Or maybe I'll be able to acquire my own copy?

A cheapy game that I picked up for free in a KB Stores Buy One, Get One Free sale, when I bought the next game on this list. I want to give it a whirl.

A good, classic game that I was introduced to last year (although I suspect I might've played when I was a kid), seeing the new, bright colors for $4.99 in a BOGO sale? I needed to have it. And I want to play again.

Tami -

Based on your list, this is one you would enjoy. If Daniel Karp does not have it in 2 weeks, I will. We should have no trouble getting a fun group to bring the house down.
