    LOANER GAMES NEEDED! I just got word that one of our primary game library contributors isn’t going to make it this year. It’s going to put a substantial dent in our ability to lend out games.

    If you have games you can lend out, please bring them. I’ll be available at the info table to run a lending library if needed.

    So, one thing i want to mention is when the Johan Sebation Joust set-up came by last year, it was very loud and a bit annoying. Things were fine in the other room but in the main room it was quite loud.

    I love the game, but It was hard to hear other people with everyone screaming.

    We usually try to set them up in a corner away from the tables. I'll do my best to make sure they're a bit away from the sit-down gamers.

    For this event, the hotel. Especially as this is with a new coordinator and things are a bit touchy.

    So since y'all or tabletop/boardgame peoples here, I'll mention a little something...

    Catalyst Game Labs (L3 of the convention center) looks like they'll have a shipment of the new Battletech Beginner box and Game of Armored Combat boxes. They sold out in the first couple hours of Gencon.

    Yay Lexi! I'm always glad to hear that this event is happening as planned. It's always a good start to PAX weekend :)

    I plan on bringing at least my (almost) complete copy of Millennium Blades. It's just missing the sixth promo pack, and the alt-art character cards, but I have everything else. If anyone has any specific requests from my collection, please check it out here and let me know! I live in the area, so transporting a few games isn't going to be a problem. :)

    Thanks for putting this together again Lexi, I know things must be hectic with your new restaurant opening next friday. If anyone heads to the MTG event in Ballard this weekend maybe stop by the Old Ballard Liquor Co. and show some support.

    I managed to get work off at 5, so I'll be there. Last year I conquered Mars with small dogs, so let's see how this year goes

    I think the only game I've really got to bring is Battlestar Galactica. So if people don't want to be friends anymore, I can help. Or maybe run a DnD one shot?

    Hi all! I will be attending. I've been to PAX Prime/West plenty of times, but this will be my first pre-pax game night. I will be bringing Boss Monster (vanilla) so if you want to play or have an expansion or whatever feel free to add to it. I might also be bringing MTG pre-con commander 2018 Subjective Reality and Nature's Vengeance, maybe a brawl deck, and maybe a standard deck as well. So if you have an MTG commander deck I can play. I will for sure bring one if someone replies that they'd bring one.

    not 100% sure I can make it yet, but I've always wanted to try commander, so if you bring your two pre-cons, I'd definitely be interested in piloting one of them if you're willing to teach a standard player the intricacies of Commander.

  • shezzy153shezzy153 Registered User new member
    I'll bring a few games from my collection. If there's a specific one someone wants me to bring, I'd be happy to, otherwise I will just pick some medium-heavy Euros :D

    A few things. Is there going to be some sort of security for this? I can bring Munchkin, Redshirts and Seven Dragons. Also if anyone has Unstable Unicorns I'd love to try/play.

    This happens inside an already crowded and busy hotel. There is no additional security other than that provided for normal hotel operations.

    Since no one seems to have any specific requests for what I should bring (which isn't a problem!) here's what I'm going to bring, as far as big games:

    Betrayal at House on the Hill, 1st ed. + Widow's Walk
    Lost Valley, 2nd ed.
    Millennium Blades + Set Rotation + 5
    Unfair

    I might be able to fit some smaller ones into my bag, since I'm coming from work that day, but that's the minimum of what I'll be bringing.

    @wolfemancs Yeah, you can PM me on Discord. TheMonzterChaz#9405 to find me if you attend and I can teach commander to you. That's what the Magic community does after all.

    The difficulty here is people being their own games to play. The organizers don’t know what is going to be there.
    I wrote it before OP was updated with the box-lid system, but I think my idea was to have sheets of paper (maybe even colorful paper to be more visible?) that people could write on (e.g. with sharpies or markers) and place on their tables if they wanted to recruit players for their game.

    However, if the box lid system is clearly posted then people will hopefully figure what to do!!
    I also like the idea someone came up with of opening up a discord channel for voice/text chat during the event!! :+1:

    every day's great on

    @Mister missfortune Commander can be 2 player, so if no one is playing it with me I can share my other deck. I'd bring more but I gave all my other commander decks to friends to get them into the format.

    I am also bring a brawl deck.

  • ReploidArmadaReploidArmada Registered User regular
    I can bring my Commander stuff as well, but I'm more likely to want to play Millennium Blades or Betrayal at House on the Hill of my own stuff. What I actually end up playing will of course depend on what other people bring - I recently fell hard for Root so if someone brings that I'll be your BFF - but, basically, I'm less inclined to play M:tG at this event. Nothing personal of course~

    Yeah I mean I will have boss monsters as well. I just know MTG this last year especially has been picking traction back up. Which is funny because WotC has a smaller presence this year at PAX than ever before. But ever since Dominaria and with the help of people who have been ambassadors such as Cassius Marsh promoting it more I thought it would be nice to bring the MTG cards for those are are interested or want to learn to play or whatever.

    I have actually arrived in Seattle and am sipping some tea while typing this very post :)

    Due to the distance of travel I have limited the games I have brought to be quite small. Nevertheless this does not mean they are not entertaining. They are as follows:

    1) Dragoon - play as dragons burning villages and towns while trying to acquire the greatest hoard of gold
    2) Hanabi - co-op card game based on set collecting
    3) Codinca - Puzzle game that requires the successful creation of patterns
    4) 6 Nimmit - Trick taking game for up to 10 players
    5) No Thanks - Push your luck card game that requires the collecting of sets
    6) Cabo - memory/set building card game
    7) The Mind - Similar to Hanabi, only with no communication between players and is far more difficult
    8) Kakerlaken Poker - Bluffing game involving the avoidance of collecting sets

    I shall also be bringing the forum badges, which will be dropped off at the front desk.
