The schedule isn't done yet, but I thought I'd post this a few weeks ahead of time. Remind people of the date and maybe get some discussion going.

Here's the Game-a-thon info if you are unfamiliar with the SWA game-a-thon events.

I was thinking of GMing a learning game of Pax Romana (Advanced, Scenario V) at this one. Since it would be a beginners/learning game, I'm sure we wouldn't finish.

But if there are 3 other people who know, or will know the rules, and are willing to show up and play, that'd be great. Just let me know. I'd rather play than teach

oh... and if you're reading this post thinking, I wish someone would run blah biddy blah. Go ahead and post what you'd like to see run.

I know there's a potential GM or 2 reading this. Also, I think you can formally request a game to be run at the SWA website.

Nick,

I'd be willing to commit to an Afternoon session of Pax Romana--I think Bill Ashbaugh might be persuaded as well.

If we get 2 or 3 more who want to learn to play, let's do it. Anyone else in?

Otherwise I'll play Battlefront or whatever. That Age of Napoleon game I keep seeing you toting around looks cool. Plus I get my Paths of Glory this week. Yay!

I would be happy to try out PoG with you. This Saturday is completely free (as is Friday night), if you'd like to push it around. Or East Front II.

This isn't on the schedule but I've got 2 people and 1 maybe for Pax Romana. I want to be sure we can run it 4 player. If anyone else wants to play/learn, let me know. I've got room for at least 1 more. It will be during the 11:00 to 4:00 session.

The rules are available for free download online. The quick start rules are in the beginning of the playbook.

I found a 3rd player for Pax Romana.

If someone really wants to play, I have room for one more. But I now have enough players. Thanks
