It's now just a few weeks until the NBW convention (Niagara Boardgaming Weekend) happens in Niagara Falls, Ontario. It happens over the four days of January 18–21. So now is a great time to ask three questions ... who is going? What are you bringing? And, finally, what do you want to play (that you're not bringing)? I'll start ...

Hey, yeah, I'll be there for my third time! Hopefully not getting a case of food poisoning this year.

I'm bringing (to play and/or teach) the following new and old games: Combat Commander: Europe, Troyes, Rajas of the Ganges, Transatlantic, Tigris & Euphrates, Tikal, Modern Art, Battles of the Bulge: Celles, and Import / Export. Plus some smaller filler stuff. Please let me know if you want to play any of these.

I'd love to try/learn Heaven & Ale or Azul (if anyone has them yet), Roll Player, Sagrada, Tiny Epic Galaxies, or any of the newest (late 2017) Euros. If you have these, let me know and I'd be up for scheduling a game.

See everyone there!

I'll be there! I've only missed a few of these since 2004, so this will be, I dunno, my 10th or 12th time? It's always enjoyable.

I've got a few things planned already. Sealords: The Vietnam War in the Mekong Delta on Thursday, the Seven Days scenario from On to Richmond! and then Storm Over Dien Bien Phu on Saturday, and Battlelines: The Stalingrad Campaign on Sunday. Nothing planned for Friday, yet.

Attended too many to count...

Bringing Pendragon (assuming it gets here), OSG Library of Napoleonic Battles (Coming Storm or Last Success), Nations at War & Tactical from L’n’L and Combat Commander for sure...

Would like to play any Columbia stuff... just played Caesar and Hammer games for the first time...

This’ll be six for my wife and I. Some notables we’ll be bringing: anachrony, roll player, cosmic encounter, meeple circus, scythe with everything, mechs vs minions, sagrada, and much more. We’ll be there all four days, so scheduling should be easy.

Fantastic. I'm there all four days and will be at the Escape Room on Wednesday night as well. Pick a day/time and I'll consider that booked.

Sure, that sounds like a plan. We generally get to the con at 9:30 Thursday and Friday, so how about then, or shortly after? We can knock both out at once.

Azul's super quick and easy...it'll only take about 30mins. Are there any other games you'd like for me to teach? Feel free to take a look at my collection and see if there's any thing you'd like for me to bring and teach and we can set up a time?

Steve

Rialto? I've played only once and would be willing to have another game. Friday morning, or if you're there, Wednesday night at Escape Room?

Hey Dave,

Sure, I'll bring Rialto. Friday morning sounds good! I'm coming in from GTA so I should be in around 9:30ish.

Hi Steve, 51st state looks interesting. Any chance you could bring that?

For Rajas, let's try to coordinate you into the same games as Mark. Let me know a good time and day. I'll be available by mid-afternoon Thursday and am there all four days (and Wednesday evening gaming at the Escape Room).

I'll be there! Definitely from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon, but hoping to arrive on Thursday if I can arrange for the time off work!

Bringing:
- Whistle Stop
- A Column of Fire
- Ex Libris
- Terraforming Mars with Hellas & Elysium

Happy to teach:
- 51st State if Steven brings his copy

From the games mentioned so far, I'd love to learn:
- Roll Player
- Meeple Circus

Happy to play:
- Rajas of the Ganges (played once and looking to try it again)
- Sagrada (love this game!)
- Azul (enjoyed my few plays)
- Grand Austria Hotel

Would also love to learn/play if available:
- Altiplano
- Photosynthesis
- Favelas
- Castles of Burgundy: The Dice Game

Of course, this is all subject to change since I have a few weeks of great gaming to look forward to between now and then!

As in other years, I've created a google sheet to summarize this discussion and the games we'll have there. I find this list helpful when packing to see what games are already committed to being there, and for reference when we're there if I'm trying to remember who was bringing or interested in a particular game.

Thanks DaveyJJ for creating this thread!

And thanks to Jared for starting the trade list!
