    I have not played A&A in years. That is such a fun game to play- but doubt I'll be able to play since I will probably be working the door. :)

    Okay, we gotta get some "door volunteers" so Dale can play a game. If you haven't seen it yet it's now a six player game. Italy is the sixth nation. New, larger map, more military units, China is still controlled by the U.S. player, but is played independently. Victory is now determined by controlling a set number of 'Victory cities'. More & different strategies are available for each player. Just a great re-do of a classic game. We have to get you away from that door, at least for a little bit.

    Quit yer whining Dale! You'll work the door and like it! Heck, I think you even got two 3 minute bathroom breaks. Luxury! And I didn't even make you pay to do it.

    I agree! I think we need a special rank for Dale, Official Gary Con Complainer!

    But in all honesty, he was the hardest working guy there (and because of it, the rest of us got to play a lot more!).

    So Keeper- I couldn't talk you into an 8-man Tade Wars?

    heh :D

    Next year I want to be The Keeper/Manager of the Gaming Cabana Girls. Hot chicks in bikinis that walk around and serve you food & cold beverages.

    Of course, I get an occasional back massage from them for my stressful duties of gaming. :D

    Some one need to hire the cop (security guard) from Gary Con 0 every year. And if you can get her to wear a bikini - oh my...better have paramedics on hand too.

    Well I'm not a paramedic, but I am an EMT. I guess that can do in a pinch. We have a saying- EMT's save Paramedics from themselves. We catch them jumping straight to ALS mode, when BLS is all that is needed.

    It's funny you should bring her up. I remember thinking that she was not having a good time at all being around us at the Legion Hall. She seemed like she was in nerd Hell or something. Oh, wait.

    i would like to see "The Battle for Luke Gygax" aka "Circus Maximus" :D

    It's only a two player game, but I plan on bringing my copy of Gary's Alexander the Great, published by Avalon Hill, to GaryCon II.

    Alexander is good old hex'n'counter wargame, with a nifty morale system, first published by Guidion Games, later by AH.

    Here is the BGG entry:

    I'm also kicking around bringing some other old TSR boardgames:
    Snit's Revenge
    Warlocks and Warriors

    Though I'm loathe to bring Snit's Revenge, as my copy is unpunched.

    We need to start CM earlier next year. :)

    WAIT A DANG MINUTE!!!!!! I THOUGHT I WAS "THE KEEPER" :?: ( Gotta get in on this one somehow, I'd love a massage.) :lol:

    Soon as I figure out what 'Tade Wars' is I let ya know. :)
  14. the keeper

    the keeper Spellbinder

    What about 'King of the Tabletop' (a.k.a. Kings & Things) or Divine Right? (Sorry, Luke. I brought it w/ to G.C. 1, just forgot to show it to you.) I could also bring my Avalon Hill copy of 'Circus Maximus' so no one's left out.

    You could make a copy of Snit's (or other Wham games) from Dragon and play off that.

    I've never played the Dungeon board game and was watching some peeps playing. I seriously want to try it next year.

    Don't have either, though if DR6 is out by then, I may have that.

    Now that, I do have. :D

    I think I'm the guilty party for bringing my Dungeon! board game to both Gary Con 0 and Gary Con I. I definitely plan on going for 3 in a row and bringing it to Gary Con II!

    I've always loved playing Dungeon! Good fun times...

    I have a copy of Snits Revenge/Snit Smashing that I already punched. So I can bring it and you can keep your copy pristine. I don't have a copy of Alexander though- it is fun as I remember, its been like 25 years since I played.
