    We'll be in the Sheraton, so Brian and I will be there probably after dinner that night! I'm hoping for games of Arkham and/or Galactica, but I'm up for everything, board games and handheld (only catch is I don't own a copy of Galactica, and I don't know if I have room to pack all my Arkham sets in my suitcase, so I'll be relying on others who can bring the games.)

    We can bring BSG, but not Arkham.

    Arkham horror? I think our tag along friend (that's what I'm going to start referring to him as. The 3rd friend my wife and I are bringing along) is bringing that game. We won't actually know until he shows up to our place the night before our flight (he's forgetful and his house is an hour in the opposite direction of the airport.) But yeah, if I remember to tell him (and I've got the game name right) it will likely be there.

    I shall be bringing along Eclipse. This is a board game that is very similar to 4x PC games like Sins of a Solar Empire and the recently released Endless Space. It has a score of 8+ on Board Game Geek and can take up to 3 hours to play with a full roster of 6 players. I can vouch that it deserves such a high score!

    You are awesome. I've been on the fence, but if you are bringing this. I am so there. Long as scheduling works out right.

    I say you Seattle-ites stick to the bigger games that are harder for me to pack in my bad (CAH is so small it'll fit in the coner of my suitecase.) But that's just MHO.

    Same, I can't exactly fit Ticket to Ride or Munchkin in my pack, but CAH, Cthluhu Dice, these are things I can bring.

    Agreed! Most of the extra room I have in my suitcase is going to my kids toys. The more entertainment I have for them, the better chance there is that Grandma will take them for years to come! lol!

    Hotel Booked: check!

    I haven't played before, but I read the rules and seen people play, and really hope I get a chance to play sometime during PAX

    Warning: BSG has a high probability of 'table flipping' rage. You have been warned! :p

    I disagree. The game is just as bleak and hopless as the TV show, which means you're generally too depressed to flip the table.

    I feel like I'm entirely too big of a board game fan to miss this. I didn't see BANG, RoboRally, or Catchphrase on the list, so I will be happy to bring them along with me.

  • HeadhunterHeadhunter Registered User regular
    How late do y'all think you will be going? I will be attending the Mariners game from about 7-10pm (I'm a big baseball fan), but would like to drop by afterwards before calling it a night.

    It went quite late last year. You should be fine.

    Thanks for organizing this again this year! I loved it last year! My wife doesn't get in till late Friday so i,m all alone Thursday night. Not anymore!

    As an aside, if someone has and brings Takenoko, I will love you forever and also make a point of showing up to play.

    We'll probably be bringing:
    Cards Against Humanity
    Settlers of Catan
    Dominion
    Tsuro

    *note - it'd be easier to read the OP's list of games if they were alphabetical and had duplicates removed...just saying.

    Is this the part where I make the sarcastic comment about the list being sooooo much easier if you updated it with links to descriptions of each of the games?
    (I kid, I kid, thanks for doing this.)

    You're pants kick followed through to me, I'll contact my friend re: Arkham horror.

    Edit: Friend confirmed he intends to bring Arkham Horror. I'll stay on him not to forget it.

    should now be a link on everything - (thanks Ghola for the dune version)

    Anyone interested in the Game of Thrones board game? I know it's a longer play out, but if anyone is interested I'll bring it.
    Also, I'll have my copy of the new Descent 2nd edition if anyone wants that.
    Sorry if I'm duplicating earlier game suggestions, just tossing these out there.

    (Note: I haven't played it yet lol, our gaming group keeps getting side-tracked on other games, but I'm familiar with all the rules.)

    For Dune, it is the '79 version by Avalon Hill.

    I'd hate to bring another redundant CAH, but I am thinking about packing my special version with a self-made custom expansion integrated that I have a feeling PAX-goers may appreciate...

  • jclemyjclemy Registered User regular
    The more I see the suggestions the more I'm wondering how I'm ever going to manage to play all the games I would like to play.

    I'm excited to see how inappropriate people get with strangers and CAH.

    I'm staying at the Sheraton, will definitely try to show up at some point in the night, if not at 4. I believe I should be able to bring 7 Wonders and maybe Monty Python Fluxx.

    I asked this at the Tabletop Thread, and I ask this here too. I'm looking to see if I can get some serious gamers for the World of Warcraft Board Game (the huge Fantasy Flight one). I've played only a hand full of times since I've gotten it, and I really want another go at it. The problem of course is that it is a huge game, and bag space is a premium. Would anyone be interested in playing this, if so I'll drag it with me.

    Not sure if I will be there (depends on when roommates arrive at SeaTac), but if I am able to make it I will be bringing The Resistance.

    I was driving some out-of-towner friends around, and I kept complaining about being blinded. They responded with "You see, where we come from, people tend to wear Sunglasses." I retorted with a simple "You people tend to have sun."

    That guy who brings 50+ pounds of boardgames will once again be showing up to this. Unfortunately, I have moved to southern california and it isnt exactly feasible to bring a large ikea bag full of games anymore :(. I will bring a few smaller games though!
