has been tossing this onto the BGG Con pile (for which I thank him). The BGG Con 2015: Wargames, Meetups, and Mules Geeklist has been up for several weeks now and I'm getting impatient excited about the Con and want to schedule some longer games.

So that's what this list is mainly for: long, er, Epic Games that are difficult to find players, and space, for on the fly. However, don't let that stop you from posting up not-quite-so-Epic games.

Please create a separate entry for each new game so things don't get too confusing - and separate entries are easier to locate later than scheduling multiple games in the comments of one entry.


Go here to schedule boardrooms for your games. The page is a little tricky to edit, but you're gamers and I have faith you will get the hang of it.

Not necessarily epic, but I would like to get a chance to play this game at a scheduled time. Perhaps Friday 2 pm?

Does anyone know how to play that would be willing to teach?

Above and Below Friday 2 pm. Meet outside library in hall to decide location.

For my now-annual game of Arkham Horror.
We'll be using at least Dunwich, Innsmouth, and Curse of the Dark Pharoah. Possibly others depending on what people feel like.
The game will be on Thursday night, probably starting at 6 or so.
We'll be in LadyBird again this year.

Surprised this isn't on here yet. Although I'm sure many games will happen, its nice to know one can arrive at a certain point and know they will get a 5 player game in.

6pm wed night in one of the quiet rooms
(setup at 530 if possible using library copy hopefully, unless anyone wants to bring theirs) I prefer to use all cards but no expansion boards.

Microbadge: ChristianMicrobadge: I have a black beltMicrobadge: Warehouse 13: The Board Game fanMicrobadge: US Army IntelligenceMicrobadge: Citizenship Recognition - Level V - My God! It's Full of Stars!
Battlestar Galactica with all expansions

Using the following rulesets:
- Destination: Kobol, Ionian Nebula, or Earth, players' choice.
- Galactica and Pegasus; Demetrius only if Earth is chosen
- Cylon Fleet Board
- Exodus Loyalty
- Daybreak Treachery
- Daybreak Motives
- Mutiny
- 5 to 7 players
-- 5 players: 3 humans, 2 Cylons
-- 6 players, 3 humans, 2 Cylons, 1 Cylon Leader OR Mutineer
-- 7 players, 3 humans, 2 Cylons, 1 Cylon Leader, 1 Mutineer

Optional, depending on player desires:
- Final Five
- Personal Goals

If acceptable, I propose the following rule "tweaks":
- Random Damage (mixed pool of Galactica and Pegasus damage tokens)
- "Truly Blind" Blind Jumps (Cain's Blind Jump destination can't be scouted in advance)
- "Lone Cylon Standing" (if last Loyalty card is a Cylon, all resources -1 at game end)

We will be using the awesome custom components created by:

Instead of cardboard characters, we will either use Craig's miniatures or Minimates, depending on character selection - not all figures are available. I don't have a pic of Craig's minis, but here's what the Minimates look like:

We have done this for the last two years and it has been the highlight of my con each time. I will be playing each game with my 12 year old son who loves this game. I will mule the game, setup and help with rules explanation along with Jim brooks.

This year I am wanting to set up three games of this. The first two are open to anyone, but the intention is for new players who would like to learn the game. It would be a 2-3 hour game.


The third game would only be for those who have played the game before and would be an epic 5-6 hour game. I'm thinking this would be on Saturday afternoon.

Comment on this item to let me know which game you want to play in.


Game 1 open to all; to teach new players. 2-3 hours; Wednesday night 6:30-9:30 pm. We have the ladybird room from 6-10 for setup and tear down.

1) chris may
2) caleb may
3) alex n.
4) matt smith
5) April higgins
6) Rory veronda
7) Ivan ware
8) Jeffrey Stephens


Game 2 open to anyone to teach new players 2-3 hours Thursday 2:30-5:30 pm. We have the ladybird room from 2-6 for setup and tear down.
1) chris may
2) caleb may
3) Jeff morris
4) mark l
5) Matthew Carson
6) Corey cox
7) Wes V
8)Jim brooks


Game 3 experienced players only (including those who played in previous two games) Saturday afternoon 12:30-5:30. We have the ladybird room from 12-6 for setup and tear down.

1) chris may
2) Caleb may
3) jim brooks
4) Adam kranzel
5) Kevin (pet doc)
6) Nate Owens
7) Brian conry
8) taylor grow
9) jordan grow

What epic games thread would be complete without Dune? A friend and I have been itching to get in a game for over a year now, so this will be a great opportunity. We have both played before. The game will be muled by:

Can mule, with Rise of the Ancients.

Never play with Rise expansion. Would prefer to play with people who know how to play the base game , so we don't have to teach it.
If your willing to learn how to play beforehand through videos or whatever , then newbies are fine.



Thursday 12 pm
Main Ballroom, towards the far side hopefully.
Moved to room 725.

1 Gary Hassani(trekrider)
2 Jeremy Harrison(jnharr)
3 Clint Brubakken (cheez)
4 Ryan Lynn

per request keeping it at 4.

Game 2 - Same time, close to same place.

Not epic due to length, but epic in that it's a 15 player game played across three tables.

If you're not familiar with the game, you start at a table of 5 people, and there are 2 other tables of 5 people also playing. Each table has a random board set-up, so while each table is essentially playing the same game, the situation at each table is going to be different.

The cool twist is that during the game, you can pick up all your stuff, leave your table, and insert yourself into one of the other tables. In fact, you'll have to do this, as there is a goal you need to attain at each table. Furthermore, you're not allowed to peek at the other tables during the game, so when you arrive at a new table, you have no idea what the situation is at that table.

I'm scheduling a game of this for Thursday at 10 AM. Comment if you want in!

SECOND GAME

Day and Time Thursday 10 am start time
Location In front of BGG Library, long row of tables,
probably near back end.
I will start setup on Thursday morning around 9am

Thursday as soon as I have our tables, I will contact every person who has given me contact info by a text, geekmail, and/or email. If you are not on my contact info list, meet us at game tables in front of the Library, look for Amy1355 on a Team Geek Jersey or the game boxes for FFF. My first plan will be to set up on the tables in the room/long area directly in front of the Library if there is enough space available. If we cannot get the space there by 9:30 am, I will move. At that point I will leave my boyfriend with a sign to find and re-direct players.

Players will be randomly assigned one of the 15 table positions, except that I will pre-assign the people who said they can read rules beforehand so they are evenly spread out.

I confirmed that there are three copies in the library.

1) Amy1355
2) Fullhouse751
3) Todd D.
4) tlnordin
5) Jon, friend of tlnordin
6) cubbieblue
7) corross
8) majicbaby
9) majicbaby's +1
10) luetchy
11) Khedron
12) drbsgold
13) Xadocs
