Burster of Bubbles, Destroyer of Dreams.
Just imagine the red offboard up here. I'll create it Real Soon Now...
Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.
This is going to be my first BGG.con, unfortunately I will only be able to visit there for one day before having to leave. Is there any particular day that is best? Is it better to go on the first day, or to wait until someday like Saturday, or will all the hot games at the exhibitors be sold out by then?
What do you want to do?
Shop for games? -- Earlier is better, if you know what you want (though if so why not pre-order), unless you want to wait and benefit from the wisdom of the masses on what is worth buying
Play the hot new games? -- Earlier is better before it gets more crowded, unless you want to wait and benefit from the wisdom of the masses on what is worth trying
Enjoy the world's best gaming party -- Later is better, unless you have a maximum tolerance for crowds
Are there any special events that you want to go to?
