Gamestorm 17 is coming up in a little over three months. I am trying to figure out what to GM, and I'm sure many other folks here are too. so I thought I would start a geeklist asking a simple question: What do you want to play?

This list covers the whole spectrum -- boardgames, RPGs, even video games (if you can figure out a way to play a video game at a tabletop convention more power to you!). and this isn't just for the multi-player games that are preferred on the schedule. If you want to play a one-on-one pickup game, that can go on this geeklist too.

This list is not an official Gamestorm thing and has nothing to do with the organizers of this event (cool people though they are).

So if there's something you want to play at Gamestorm, post it to the list. Hopefully someone will run it! If so, my work is a success.

I really like this game. "Creative Card Games" are among my favorite genres, and this one -- where you pitch anime series with word-salad titles -- is right up my alley.

The only downside is whether the anime theme will appeal to people. I understand there's an American B-Movie game from the same designer on the same premise, but I've never seen it.

I'm interested in titles that are hard to get in the US, to know whether they are worth pursuing. Other examples (if I haven't already gotten them by then) include:

Uruk II: Die Entwicklung geht weiter
Port Royal
The City
S-Evolution
Ghost Fightin' Treasure Hunters

As you can tell, my tastes run toward low-conflict, subtle-interaction games, or co-ops.

My favorite game evar!

I would be willing to adjust my Fri or Sat night schedule if anybody wants to get a game in after 8P. I also have most of Sunday open.

I haven't played this in years, but had a grand old time when I did. Anyone have a copy and thinking of running it?

Probably one of my top ten games, but I hardly ever get to play.

Good old Nappy. There are a lot of other CDGs out there now, but this one is special to me. can't quite place my finger on why.

I've had one playing of this, which I won, and would like to have another go with a different strategy (and probably lose).

Hopefully I will have a copy of the P500 reprint by the time the convention rolls around. If so I'd like to have a go at a pickup game sometime (which I will probably lose).

I want to be a player in a game of this at some point, although other D100 games like Clockwork & Chivalry would be nice too.
