Get a Jump on Unity's Jump Start!

This is a Geeklist for gamers attending Unity Games XX.Recommend
For some Unity is a chance to get together and game with old friends. Others relish in the chance to wander from table to table sampling new games and meeting new gamers. And if you fall into those groups, this list may not be for you.
But others look forward to Unity as a chance to:
A) Play that looong game/game that never makes it to the table in your regular gaming group.
B) Try a beloved game that you've only ever played with 2-3 players with its max load of 5 or 6
C) Play a beloved game against skilled players who you have never played against (because your game group has just become too predictable )
D) Try out a game that you have been drooling over but have never had the chance to play
E) Get in as many games as possible with as little "downtime" (looking for a new game to play) as possible.
F) Are brand new to Unity and want to have some pre-set games to go to so that you don't have to wander around looking for a game to play.
If this sounds like you, I created this Geeklist just for you!
If you want to plan to play a specific game at a specific time at Unity (but need players to fill out the table) simply add that game to this Geeklist. If you see a game you want to play, say so in a comment in the game's entry. This will guarantee you a spot at that table.
If you want to start a table, do the following in your entry:
1) State the number of players you are looking for
2) Clearly describe the level of experience you are looking for in players. For many, experience will not matter, but to be fair a rookie can (accidentally) ruin 3 hrs of gaming (Battlestar Galactia for example) or overly experienced gamers can make a rookie's experience horrible. If useful feel free to use these descriptors:
a) no experience (used to describe a gamer who basically knows nothing of the game beyond its name and theme and will have to have the rules explained in depth)
b) some experience (used to describe a gamer who has a general sense of the rules and gameflow but may not have read the rules and will have to have the rules explained)
c) experienced (used to describe a gamer who has a strong grasp on the rules and could play it little to no rules explanation)
d) veteran (used to describe a gamer who needs no rules explanation and can play the game very well)
3. State the time you want to meet to play the game and (perhaps) a place to meet (like near the front table)
A couple of guidelines:
A) once a "table" is full and has been established I recommend contacting each other via PM to share cell phone numbers so you can get together easily and find a "lost" player
B) Try to stay true to your commitment to play. If you have to change things, please let the other members know ASAP
C) Please only list a game you own or will have access to, you don't want to get 5 people together to play Eclipse only to find out that no one can find a copy of Eclipse. If you want to play a game you don't own/have access to check out Phil's list http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/167875/what-games-will... to see what games will be brought to Unity (you can try to reserve someone's copy) and if you don't see it there, feel free to request it--someone will most likely bring it for you!
D) If there is already an entry for a game you want to play, don't repeat that entry. Fill up existing tables instead; the exception to this is if you don't match the skill level requested, then start a new table with a different skill level.
Have fun and see you all there!!!
