ooo! Sounds like fun! But it's over Easter Weekend. I would suggest a different date next year.

I agree about the date. However (and get this), I happen to be the Campus Minister at PSU and I am holding a thrity minute Easter Service on Sunday Morning using game terminology and humor to celebrate Easter. The service will be at the Con itself. I think this may be a first for any CON.

BOARD GAMES ALL DAY LONG!!...BOARD GAMES ALL DAY LONG!!...BOARD GAMES ALL DAY LONG!!...BOARD GAMES ALL DAY LONG!!...

I will definately be there all day on both days. I look forward to trying out some games I haven't played yet (which are a lot). I will also be preparing to finally overtake Preston in Twilight Struggle. And I am also preparing a fleet of ships to battle with in Pirates of the Spanish Main.

BOARD GAMES ALL DAY LONG!!...BOARD GAMES ALL DAY LONG!!...BOARD GAMES ALL DAY LONG!!...BOARD GAMES ALL DAY LONG!!...

I'm looking forward to EconoCon, as well. I have a few games I bought recently I'd like to play like Taj Mahal and Primordial Soup.

And you can bet I'll be in that Carcassonne tournament. I'd love to get that Big Box!

I'll be there both days ready to play any and all board games I can. I'll also be the one running the Carcassonne tournament where the winner can walk away with a brand new Carcassonne Big Box!

I'll have all 40+ of the games I own there so anyone can play the stuff I have. I imagine a few others will be bringing their games to con too. The Gaming club that runs the con has their collection as well.

Lastly I'll be readying fleets of varying sizes to take on any and all challangers in Pirates of the Spanish Main. It's my current addiction and I can't wait to play a larger multiplayer battle. I also have been writing up a scenario game I think everyone will have fun with.

It's gonna be loads of fun people. Come on by even if only for the first day. You wont be sorry.

I will bring the prime cuts of my game collection as well. I may run a few "teaching sessions" in the morning for folks who show up and may not be in a game or know anybody personaly. Randy, I may join you at some poits for Pirates. Is there any certain kind of fleet I should put together for your scenario?

I would recommend a 40 point fleet for the basic game and maybe an 80 point fleet for a deathmatch type of game. The scenario game I want to do would just require a 40 point fleet that is designed to stop a larger fleet of ships. The rest I'll let you know later.
