SKa Baron. I like your line up. Throw Wizwar and War on terror in the mix and its a perfect list.

And you don't want to try kingsburg. Its a really really slow "To court the King." Quadruple the time and half the fun.

Anyone play Heroscape? Never really even seen it in person, but I think it'd probably be fun!

As far as games I can actually bring, that'd be:

Nexus Ops,
Robo Rally,
Last Night On Earth,
Wizard's Quest,
Starcraft,
Descent,
Dungeon Twister,
Prophesy,
Vegas Showdown

Also, any way to tell what's in the GCOM library? Maybe a copy of the new A&A? Eh?

As for games to play at Trashfest here are my preferences:

1) Descent w/ expansion - I hear the expansion allows for a slightly shorter game
2) Doom
3) Battlestar Galatica
4) Cosmic Encounters - I have the new version
5) Starcraft - I'd like to try some kind of variant where each player starts with the same planetary resources.
6) Wings of War - A big battle with minis would be fun
7) Heroscape - I have tons of these guys, I love this game

Looking forward to it!

By the way, does anybody play Warhammer 40k? Would this be ridiculous to try or could I convince someone to play? Maybe some kind of small skirmish to teach the game.. dunno

Heeeeey - I'd REALLY like to play some Doom. Also Cosmic Encounter and Heroscape.

I dont play 40k, but might be interested in playing some kind of simple scenario or something if I had time. Further down on the priority list right now, but I love the 40k universe. What factions?

Pete's post pretty much covers it all for me. I'd like to add We Didn't Play Test this Game and possibly Touch of Evil/Last Night on Earth. I'll bring whatever alcoholic food groups missing from his list.

I can bring some beer, but really I'm pretty sure I have crap for taste in beer. I was thinking Yuengling? That's the fanciest beer I buy. I'll buy something else if there's a consensus. Or I could just bring beer money.

Jon, As for 40k I have three factions. Dark Templar Space Marines, Dark Eldar and Chaos Marines. The mythos behind 40k is very dark and interesting. It's also addicting to collect, construct and paint the armies.

I'll bring a small selection of troops along and perhaps I can setup a few small skirmishes to teach the game.
