Anyone interested in non-CCG/CMG, non-RPG tabletop action?

You know, Die Siedler, Twilight Imperium, Bonhanza, Princes of Florence (etc)?

    I'm all down for some Settlers of Catan (Cities & Knights baby!) and some Munchkin (I have Munchkin Fu and I'm borrowing the complete Munchkin from a friend for an extended loan).

    I'm not familiar with the landscape. How big are the freeplay rooms? I'm worried they'll be dominated by D&D nerds. :P

    I just bought Twilight Imperium a few days ago. I havn't even played it yet.

    But I am SO down for a game of that. I don't know if I'd hazard bringing my own box down, though.

    Last PAX there was alot of open space for people to start any kind of board games.

    The freeplay room had very few hardcore D&D nerds, but alot of D&D fans.

    I'm not so sure I want to lug my copy of Twilight Imperium down, but I can certainly bring Die Siedler (thats german for Settlers) and, say, Taj Mahal.

    But if all we're getting is people who think Munchkin and Fluxx are worth playing, we might not have an audience for such fare.

    YES I WENT THERE!

    I hope other people bring settlers and other stuff, we really won't have room on the plane to bring much. :-(

    puerto rico is a fun board game if you like settlers of catan. it's crazy complicated at first, but a really good strategy game, imo. i wish i still had it to bring.

    Hi everyone! I'm super glad to see interest in board games at PAX! Officially, my mad board game geek friend Dante and Louise will be demoing all sorts of exciting games from noon-6pm on Saturday. I also have some people who are bringing a box or two of board games for people's general use (please don't steal them!). So there will definitely be board games being played. ::grins:: I will be doing my absolute best to make sure that everyone has room in the free play area to do what they want, so if you need a table, come and find me or one of my minions and we'll get you space for some Settlers or Dread Pirate or Royal Turf or whatever!

    Hey Jinx, if I bring Puerto Rico, can we get a Gamer Transit/FragDoll game together for it?

    I haven't played Puerto Rico for a while. It would be fun. At the Doubletree if nothing else, since I'll be working a significant portion of PAX.

    I always got a laugh out of 3 player Puerto Rico as it allows an effective Corn Rush strategy.

    It pleases me to see some folks interested in higher quality games. I'm tempted to bring some, but its a long way and theirs not a lot of room in my car, so I hope we'll have enough players and games to make a good show of it.

    (Is Frag Doll more than just a bad Ubi marketing gimmick?)

    Yay! Boardgames!

    Settlers, Carcassonne, Shogun (if anyone owns it, it's Risk++).

    Although I haven't played Twilight Imperium, it does look pretty spiffy, and I totally understand if someone doesn't want to lug the whole box to PAX.

    Doom also looks cool, apparently, you have an overwhelming feeling of being completely fucked the whole game.

    I will bring my Citadels set. Fun card game. :D

    As for RPGs, I'd like to participate in Paranoia, or even watch, if anyone is GM'ing it.

    If I was convinced enough people wanted to play Diplomacy, I'd bring it. But since I only know for certain that my friend and I would, that's problematic. Diplomacy is best played with the maximum number of players, which I believe is seven.

    I'm reluctant to agree to Diplomacy, as the time commitment would be too great a fraction of PAX.

    War of the Ring would be as heavy as I'd want to get. And now that I think of it, it would be an excellent game for PAX as it has high nerd appeal.

    Scatagories is a unpopular German game that requires a tough constitution, a healthy dinner, and plastic tarp.

    I bet you're thinking of Scattergories.

    Maybe if I get stationed in germany I can play some great german games at least...

    One of the big contributors on BoardGameGeek.com is from South Korea. I should ask him where he gets his stuff, as he could hook you the fuck up.

    I certainly appreciate it, but that isn't the problem. I can get the games, but no one here would play them. There are a lot of casual videogamers here, but that is about as far as it goes. I can barely get these guys to try new card games. Much less board games or DnD.

    Fuck, they wouldn't even try Liers Dice.
