I have a week to decide which games are coming along to GENCON. I also have a little over $200 in gift money earmarked for spending there. Some of my time and money will go to roleplaying, but board games will fill in all the gaps. What are you bringing to or buying at GENCON?

We will definitely be playing this one, probably with the Clash of Kings expansion.

A fellow GENCON traveller owns this and I'd like to try it. Rumor is it's better than the others...

Same fellow traveller has this one. It will make it to the table if there are 3 or 4 (out 8 of us going) who have some time.

I own this, and several people in our group have never played it. Will be good for 4 people. Note how 4 players for this and 4 players for Samurai add up to exactly 8, the size of our group. I wonder...

Works fine with 6 or 7 people. Not many of my games do. I like it more than most people in our group, and there will be so many new things at GENCON, so I'm guessing it won't make it to the table.

I have a shortage of good 2-player games, so I'll probably pick up this or maybe Hammer of the Scotts. Any suggestions?

I've been playing Call of Cthulhu since the first edition came out (1981?) and I have all but 6 of Lovecraft's stories (fixing that through Amazon soon). I have to buy this. No choice. Must by it. Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

Don't know if I like this game, but I really WANT to. It's sort of like coffee that way. It's just so cool. I own it and I'm bringing it, and I'll probably make myself (and someone else) play it.

I'll bring it, but it probably won't get played. Another traveller has a set, so we could do a big game.

This is the game I'm keeping an eye out for. If I can find a reasonably priced copy, I'm definitely picking this up. I've only gotten to play twice, but was blown away by the quality of the gameplay experience.

What can I say? I'm a real sucker for components, big boxes and fantasy themes. I should probably hold out and see if the BGG community unearths any quirks like with Runebound, Doom, Arkham Horror or Warcraft which may turn me off to the concept, but I have a feeling that won't keep me from picking this up if it's an option.

I was planning to put up a similar list. I will be bringing this game along with me to GenCon. My goal is to play a game or two of this. If anyone is interested, let me know. I will teach the rules to whoever wants to play.

I don't have the 1st edition for trade, and I know it'll be priced at MSRP, but this release is one I doubt I'll be able to walk past. Surely someone else out there is with me on this one. In fact, I bet if I wait around till Saturday I won't get the chance.

And of course the 2nd edition is better than the first by 'one more', isn't it?
