I really want to attend more of these, but the 1.5 hour drive (one way!!) is usually too much for me to overcome...

Honestly, I'd say it's worth it. Helps that it's held in a hotel next to the Mall Of America. You can bring the family and let them run loose in the place while you enjoy some gaming!

I'm biased though. I spent 25 years living in Duluth and drove to the Twin Cities quite often for concerts and dorky things.

Well if it isn't already full, the gf and I can make Saturday. There are actually quite a few games that were played last time that we want to take a look at.

Here are the top games we want to try, so if you have it and want to play it, please bring it!

Snow Tails
Ghost Stories
RoboRally
Shipyard
Small World
Shadows Over Camelot
Powerboats

And a lot more! Lol. I know we won't get around to all of them, but this is kind of a heads up for anybody who has them and wants to bring them.

You will be able to find us since we will be the two people walking around aimlessly with the deer in the headlights look!

I can't predict the future, but those are all commonly seen at these marathons.

You'll get pulled into a game faster than you imagine.

Yeah, it's not hard to find yourself roped into games at these things. I often find myself looking to try one thing and walk out having 5 new games on my want list I had never previously considered!

Hope you have fun!

Looks like a good game - are you looking for players, or do you already have people lined up? I could get the rules read by saturday, if you could use another player...

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

Also would like to get some time in on Power Grid, I got it for Christmas, and haven't had a chance to play it yet.
Also bringing Puerto Rico, Agricola, Acquire, Settlers of Catan and maybe something else if it will fit in my container.

The TI3 rules take an ungodly long time to explain. I would highly recommend that you read the rule book ahead of time.

(Note that I have nothing to do with playing TI3 this weekend. I'm just making a suggestion based on past experience.)
