It's only two months away! Who's excited?

The main website is here:
http://conofthenorth.com/

There are links to the event list here:
http://conofthenorth.com/registration.php#onlinelists

I signed up for Gordy's Circus Train (Second edition) on Friday night. Hopefully I registered soon enough to actually get a ticket.
I'm also interested in Zack's Age of Industry Minnesota first thing on Friday. But I have my doubts about what time I'll get there.

Of course most of my time will be with the "cool" kids hanging out in the UndeadViking Board Game room like the last few years.
Who's going to rope Lance into a 7 player game of Caverna: The Cave Farmers this year?

I'm also looking forward to completing Byron's plush dice set. He has a d4, d6, and d20 from last year.

Hooray! I'm excited.

I haven't signed up for anything, though I think Gene is running Struggle of Empires on Sunday and that's tempting. There's already been some discussion of getting the open gaming ball rolling on Friday. Looking forward to seeing folks and playing games with them.

I will be going along with my daughter (her third year in a row) and defending my Flapjacks & Squatches World Championship title.

Anyone interested in a math trade?

I'll be there. It's my first year attending so I'm not sure what to expect. I already submitted my preregistration and have been reading over the booklet since I got it.

I will obviously be there. I will make sure to bring my eclectic sampling of games with me.

Rumor has it that Mrs. UndeadViking may attend...

Take note. Only 8+ player games for Andrew!

I'm signed up for a Saturday morning session of Serrenissima and am running Age of Industry right away on Friday.

But the rest of the time I'll be there in the open gaming room with my big ol' bag of games! Obviously I'll have Age of Industry along (and would be happy to get it out again so you can try it Brenden... though most years its simply along so the Brass-o-philes can scoff at it). I was also planning to bring Olympos for Matt and Powerboats for Brian. Beyond that I'll bring a selection of new shiny stuff and games I just am in the mood to play. I'll probably set up my usual poll asking for suggestions to bring a bit closer to the Con.

Can't wait to see you all there!

That's what my Jr. High chess coach used to say about skipping chess tournaments for hockey games.

If for whatever reason it fills up, come anyway, I listed myself as playing and will gladly give up my spot to just teach--the Circus Train love has to spread!

Also, please…please sign up for Thunder Alley. Some other guy and myself are both running Thunder Alley for the same 4-hour block on Friday night. So there will be tons of spots to fill--it's been pretty popular so maybe we'll fill it all, who knows. It's a great game, fast and fun, and in "real" life I hate NASCAR, but love this game none-the-less.

This has been at the top of my want to play list. I was excited to see it booklet and have registered for it. Hope to get in but even if I don't I'll stop by and see if there is space.

I'm in for this year, although I still need to register. Better take care of that now.

Also, friends don't let friends play 7p games of Caverna.

True. At a Con it is necessary to combine two sets so you can play with 14!

Sweet! I will move mountains to make sure you get in, maybe bring an extra copy. (Maybe I can ask the Con for an extra table?) But really there should be enough spots between the multiple games going on. TA is a weird game in the history of the games I have run it has appealed to wargamers and eurogamers, the young and the old. I had a father daughter combo play once and they had a great time.
