    I work until about 4 and live in Tacoma so I won't be up until 5:30 or later. I'll bring Eldritch Horror with the Expansion and Channel A.

    I'd love to see the blue sun expansion, but I don't know if I want to tie myself up for 4-6 hours LOL. (plus I seem to have horrible dice luck)

    POOP: The Game (including the expansion deck)
    Dragon Slayer
    Kombat Kittens
    Love Letter
    Forbidden Island
    Zombie Dice
    Hive (pocket edition)
    Morels
    Lords of Waterdeep

    Morels? Is it a game of picking mushrooms?

    EDIT: Holy shit, it IS a game of picking mushrooms! Wha-?

    And if you acted quickly when they went on sale, you got handmade mini walking sticks and little tiny frying pans from the designer. I don't think he makes them anymore though. And it's a great 2 player game too.

    I just bought mine recently (specifically for this trip), so unfortunately I only have the exceedingly less cool cardboard tokens. :\

    They are definitely thematic pieces but I've played the game with both and they honestly don't do much to enhance gameplay. The ways in which they are used to really make it worthy of having special plastic pieces. You can have just as good of an experience (and it IS a great game) without them IMO.

    All true....but...boardgamers LOVE BITS! That's the only reason I have them, Glorious Bits. Also on the good news front, the new Coup expansion, Reformation, showed up so it'll be making it's way to pax with me.

    Well, not anymore, I've had my game for close to 2 years and really don't get it played too much since we have a larger gaming group. I shall gift you my bits, you and Lexicon can play the penultimate Morels experience.

I also own all (but one) the Flying Frog games if anyone wants me to bring one of those. Let me know :)

    Finished packing, packed well, had extra room, room for my personal favorites! Also coming now, Catacombs (mix crokinole with dungeons and dragons.) you don't know what crokinole is?! Shame on you :) look up hilinski crokinole, they're amazing, and worth every penny. Also Eight-Minute Empire, and The Downfall of Pompeii. Flying out in 6 hours, see you tomorrow! Also if something doesn't get played my friend and I will be looking for people to play after expo hours, don't let Thursday be the only day you play!

    And Aaron ElWhite, I made it a point to not forget the legacy expansion this year, it is definitely packed!

    Would anyone be interested in Smash Up, Quantum, or Forbidden Desert? I wouldn't be able to fit all of them in my carry-on, but could bring one or two of those if there was interest.

  • tigresaatigresaa Bay AreaRegistered User new member
    Hi there! I read through the rules and all the posts and didn't see anything about this, but I want to ask just to make sure it's kosher! If I designed a game, am I allowed to bring it and demo it to anyone that wants to play? :)

    I'd love to play Cosmic Encounter. I've played it a fair few times at my board game group and it's a real favourite of mine.

    I am local... so if anyone really wants to play SmashUp (with all the available expansions) or Forbidden Desert I can bring those. May also bring Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot (plays up to 8) if people are interested there. I have a couple of the boosters.

    Hey guys, I am really sorry to do this the day before. unfortunately I have to back out. There's a gaggle of friends that I only get to hang out with at PAX that want to get together and do other things than boardgames (I suggested and was shot down :() so I have to pull out my games and myself. That means Star Trek Catan, Tokaido, Zombie Dice, and Letters from Whitechapel won't be coming.

    Sorry guys! I tried :(

    Prime: '10, '11, '12, '13, '14, '15

    It's fine to bring/demo your own games, as long as it's not a promotional table. We've had folks bring games they've designed before to demo and play, but it's primarily a community event, so the same rules apply to you as to the attendees: only one table, and no big displays or flyering other tables with materials. You're welcome to bring a small tabletop sign for your table if you don't have a boxtop yet, and leave a note at the info table inviting folks to come play.

    Other than that, PAXers love to play new games and be part of playtesting, so I'm sure there would be no lack of interest.

    Happily on Sabbatical. Don't bug me.
  • LexiconGrrlLexiconGrrl Registered User regular
    We are bringing:

    GetBit!
    RedShirts
    Lord of the Fries
    Bang!
    Blue Moon City
    Ninja v. Ninja
    Poo!

    TrenchZone: A very indie game from the island of Jersey in Europe. It's a game of trench warfare set in WW1. It's also bloody complicated, so if anybody wants to borrow it and figure out the gameplay so you can 'splain it to me, that would be boss.

    Bah. It looks like I won't be joining you all for as long as I'd hoped, but I'm still going to pack a decent load of (most smaller) games. My somewhat mostly final-ish list is:
    POOP: The Game (including the expansion deck)
    Dragon Slayer
    Kombat Kittens
    Love Letter
    Forbidden Island
    Zombie Dice
    Hive (pocket edition)
    Morels
    Lords of Waterdeep

    And thanks you, had a lot of fun playing LoWD with you and playing your zombie dice after you left.

    Thanks everybody, for such an outrageously successful game night! We blew past all previous attendance records with around 600 people there at one point.

    As always, feedback about the event and ideas to improve it are always appreciated, so if you have any comments, please post them.

    3 lost little pieces were turned in at the end of the evening: a red tank, an orange house (Catan?) and a red cardboard token (Lords of Waterdeep). If any of these pieces look like yours, you can find me at every Omegathon round today and possibly tomorrow, wearing a JOEMEGANAUT shirt. Otherwise, shoot me a PM or email and we'll work something out.
