This will my second pilgrimage to BGG.Con. I had a great time last year. I have attended a few regional Cons and like it when I am able to schedule myself for specific games, but I also liked the open gaming at BGG.Com.

I have many unplayed games (don't we all) that I am hoping to finally get to the table, and I'm hoping to try some games I am considering buying.

I of course also want to try the games fresh from Essen but I have not had one catch my eye just yet.

Well here's my list.

I own this game.

I keep watching video reviews and I think this is also solo player, but I'd rather play in a group. It's ranked #6 so it has to be good. I'd love to learn it to teach my group.

I own this game.

Lots of hype initially, many agree its good, questionable art and component quality, I bought it anyway, looking forward to my first play.

I love the art style, many reviewers rave about it. Hoping to get this played. I hosted a dice fest (Stone Age, Kingsburg, Alien Frontiers) in my group, this will be a nice addition.

I DO NOT own this game.

Very Euroey, want to try it before I buy it, I want to be a responsible consumer (I'll probably buy it anyway).

I would like to try this game as I am considering purchasing it. I am growing fond of deck building games. (Ascension on the iPad is great)
