To help gamers prepare for the wonder and sublime juiciness of BGG.CON 2011, I've pulled together this Geeklist to highlight what's available from the vendors on hand at the con, which unpublished game designs you might encounter in Proto Alley and elsewhere, and how you can arrange to play the six-hour-long Die Übermaximal Wartradesmashfest (or another title of your choosing).

This list is open to public additions, and I encourage prospective designers to add prototypes they'll demo, publishers to add games available for demo or purchase, and gamers to push hard on scheduling a grudgeful rematch of Die Übermaximal Wartradesmashfest with those cheating jerks who totally robbed you of the win last year. Jerks.

Feel free to contact me via email (preferable – wericmartin@gmail.com) or Geekmail with corrections, additional info, and game offerings that you're too lazy to add on your own.

Eric Price from Japanime Games says that the focus at BGG.CON will be on Tanto Cuore since that game is available now in English, but there is more to see:

Game for Demo and Sale
• As noted above, Tanto Cuore, with a free Tanto Cuore Promo Card Set #1 with purchase

Games for Demo/Display/Sale
• Price says that Japanime Games will release a number of titles from Japanese publisher Arclight in English, and he will have copies of these games on hand at BGG.CON for curious souls. Most of these titles were available for sale at Spiel 2011 through Japon Brand, and while Price is mostly interested in giving an early look at future releases from Japanime, he might have copies of these for sale, too. The list of these games:
Barbarossa and its sequel/expansion El-Alamein
Blanc Noir
Dynamite Nurse Returns
Idol Project
Kemomimi Panic
Kunitori! Kessen: The Battle of Moegahara
Kunitori! Tenka: Is the World on Fire?
Tanto Cuore: Expanding the House
Tanto Cuore: Romantic Vacation

Other Items for Sale
• Japanime Games – or more specifically its parent company Cardhaus – now distributes Spielbox magazine in the U.S. and the most recent edition (and possibly others) will be available for purchase at BGG.CON.

When Stephen Buonocore at Stronghold Games told me his company's line-up for BGG.CON, it sounded like a reprise of its offerings and set-up at Spiel 2011. Specifically:

Games for Demoes
Confusion: Espionage and Deception in the Cold War
Core Worlds
Outpost
Panic Station

Games for Sale
Code 777
Confusion: Espionage and Deception in the Cold War
Core Worlds
Outpost
Panic Station
Panic Station: Survival Kit (promo)

Games for Sale II (at the BGG table)
Survive: 5-6 Player
Survive: The Giant Squid

Games for Prizes
• Says Buonocore, "We are giving some games to The Spiel guys for their game show."

In addition, Stronghold Games will have prototypes and possible co-publications available at a few special game sessions. Strongarm Stephen or Kevin Nesbitt at the convention for a peek at these items and a possible seat at the table.

Games for Demoes
Belfort (only in the Hot Games room and from the BGG library)
Kings of Air and Steam (sign up for a session here or catch Mindes or TMG's Seth Jaffee while they're wondering around aimlessly with nothing else to do)

• As noted above, you'll get your choice of one game at the entrance. What more do you want?!

The Gnomes of Zavandor
Undermining

Dark Minions
• Other titles from the list above. Z-Man's Zev Shlasinger said that while Dark Minions will be the game of choice on the demo tables, he'd be open to tearing the shrink on what people want to try.

Gil Hova is once again running Proto Alley at BGG.CON, and he's created this Geeklist so that designers can talk about what they're bringing and gamers can explore what might be coming down the pike in the future.

Designers can bring any number of designs, but they're likely to get only one on the table in Proto Alley proper. (They can, of course, scrounge for players among the crowd.) Designers are also encouraged to playtest the designs of others rather than getting their own game played, then scooting off without reciprocating. Adhere to the designer code...

(If I manage to do the things I need to do, I'll be pushing a design of my own on late-night gamers, a game in the "stupid fun" genre called Cheek to Cheek.)

While many BGG.CON attendees will play it by ear in determining what they play at the convention, others want to be more prepared, whether they're jonesing for a particular game or they yearn to put a twelve-hour behemoth on the table through breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. If you want to plan for the future, you have many lists to survey for such opportunities:

18xx at BGG.con 2011
BGG Con 2011: Wargames, Meet-Ups, and Mules
RPGs at BGG.Con 2011?

And several individuals are shaking their fists at the sky and begging others to play certain games with them:

• Jeff Coon – BGG.con 2011 Dance Card - Games I'd Like to Play
• Michael Kravetz – Games I want to try out at BGGCON
• J M Duran – BGG.Con - Games I Want to Learn & Play
• Michael Giron – My BGG.con 2011 Want To Play list
• Morganza – Games to Play at BGG.Con 2011
• Michael Mindes – BGG.con 2011 - Game I want to play
• Tim Farley – Games I intend to play at BGG.CON
• Red Rook – BGG.con 2011 - Games I want to play
• Mike Chapel – Chapel's "want to play" list for BGG.CON 2011

Okay, I won't list them all here, but trust that many, many more can be found. (P.S.: Whatever you decide to play, don't play Play It By Ear. I demoed that game back in 1991-1992 while working at a game store. Ew.)

This will be my first BGG Con so I'm excited to get in on the action! I will be bringing down the sample copies I received a few weeks ago for Dark Horse so I'll leave it out on the table I'm playing at. If you run across me and would like to check out the game or participate in a demo I'd be happy to oblige.

Still don't have a 100% final copy of MHP so I guess it still fits the prototype category. Hope to demo it a few times. Though it's done I've always got a couple prototypes on me though if anyone so desires!
