HOW IT WORKS

On the Thread
1. If you have games to bring, please post what you're bringing.
2. If you're looking to play a specific game, please post your request.
3. Please post your game/requests on the thread for the hotel that you plan to attend.

Once Present at the Hotel
1. Your coordinators for the night are Halfazedninja and Thunderous_T. Halfazedninja will be the guy wearing the Tye-Dyed top hat, 90's style.
2. If you've got a game and are looking for players, put the box top of the game vertically on your table. This is the universal sign for "I don't care who you are, please join us"
3. If you're looking to join a game, look for vertical box tops.

THE RULES
- Being good guests is critical to this event's welcome at the hotel. Don't be a dick.
- Please make every effort to game in the area they've set aside for us (listed above).
- If you get asked by the hotel staff to move, please be respectful and honor their request.
- The hotel will be reserving the lobby bar/cafe for non-gaming guests. Please sit in one of the designated gaming areas to game.
- The hotel is giving us huge, amazing, dedicated space for free. The best way to show your appreciation and support is to order drinks and food from the hotel while you're there.
- Being that the game night officially ends at Midnight, please keep that in mind and if you choose to game after Midnight find a nice quiet spot to hole up in due to noise concerns from the hotel

    My friend and I are staying there, and I am definitely interested. While the Westin sounds fun, it also sounds crazy and over crowded. It may be fun to do our own thing :D

    Yeah as much fun as the Westin would probably be, I was thinking of the overcrowding too. Hell I'm thinking even if we can take over a corner of the hotel bar that would probably be a blast :)

    I do long form opinion articles, previews, reviews and news on pc gaming and consoles.
    The site is still a work in progress and yes I will bloody work on it.
    I'm actually quite nice considering the name, I'm just very snarky.

    I can add another set of Zombie Dice and the Munchkin base (old skewl--no color). I also have Star Fluxx and Back to the Future (Chrononauts).

    I'll be at the Long Wharf as well with a dozen or so friends and family. I've got a bunch of games but not sure what I'll be bringing with me yet. Probably some dominion sets, the PA game (with expansion) and whatever else is popular with our group around that time. Most of us are planning on doing the barcrawl but we might be around before that for some gaming.

    I've got a bunch of games, and haven't decided what to bring yet. I could flesh out the munchkin collection and add blender, another copy of the PA game, quarriers, my prototype copy of boss monster (from kickstarter), disaster looms (also from kickstarter), if people are wanting something a little more in depth/longer i've got the game of thrones of LCG and several house decks my friends and i play with. I'm also wondering if some sort of DnD adventure might garner interest? How about Fiasco?

    The gaming always does conflict with the pokecrawl, but the gaming usually goes on very late into the night, so it's not too hard to do the pokecrawl first, then head to gaming.

    A quick update:

    I should hopefully have more info on this within the next two days. I called the hotel yesterday and the person I needed to speak to wasn't in the office. I'm tryingto set us up somewhere nice and not in the way of the other guests so that the hotel doesn't get annoyed with us. Stay tuned!
