No, this Geeklist does not serve to find a new partner. Although you may find some new gaming buddies instead.

What is this geeklist for, then?
Here you are with your nice collection of war, economic, fantasy, science fiction, political, Ameritrash and/or civilization building games. But who to play these with? Or maybe you already play plenty of 'heavy' games, but just struggle to get the full complement of players for a session of Virgin Queen or Descent. This Geeklist might help.

How does it work?
Just add the game you would like to play to this Geeklist. It might be helpfull to enclose the following information:

- Name of the game
- Do you own the game yourself?
- Number of players wanted
- Playing method: Face-to-face, online/play-by-email (through VASSAL, Cyberboard, ACTS, etc.)
- Can you host the session and if yes, where do you live?
- Are you prepared to travel for the session and if yes, how far?

To this you can of course add any other relevant information you want to share. I would advise you not to share any private information like phone numbers and addresses online, however.
Interested players can then react to your proposal by leaving a comment with the relevant Geeklist item. You can of course also react to the Geeklist items other players put forward. I would even encourage you to do so.

A couple of 'rules'
- No more then five Geeklist items per player. That keeps the list manageable. You can make a combined entry, though. For instance: "I'm looking for players for the tactical wargames Combat Commander and Conflict of Heroes." Interested players can then make clear to you in their comment which game they would want to play with you. You can also delete an entry if you want to put another game proposal forward and you are already on your limit of five games.
- Leave a comment with the game you're interested in. That makes it clear to everybody how many players are already 'in'. Further communications between players can of course take place by other means, like Geekmail, e-mail, etc.
- Keep this list up-to-date. Remove game proposals if you're no longer searching for players. To prevent needless 'clutter', I'll remove entries without responses after a three month period.
- Treat other people the same way you would like to be treated yourself. Look for instance after your entries and react if someone shows an interest in playing 'your' game. Subscribing to this list as a whole or just to relevant Geeklist items can help a lot in this respect.
- Use this Geeklist to find fellow players for 'heavy games'. I will not remove Geeklist items because I don't consider them heavy enough and will not put forward strict norms which game is heavy and which not. But if you're looking for players for for instance Carcassonne, Settlers/Kolonisten, Dominion and games like this you might have more luck with your family/friends or with one of the game groups in this list: http://www.ducosim.nl/verenigingen
- To keep this list manageable, it's open to gamers living in the Netherlands and in the border regions with Belgium an Germany. Feel free to copy this idea though if you're living in another part of the world
- If necessary I will edit the rules for this list to ensure that it functions well and in the way it is intended.

Why is all this in English?
Even though I'm Dutch myself, I know from experience that there are a lot of non-Dutch speaking players of heavy games in the Netherlands. Would be nice if they can use this list too. And maybe there is some English speaking gamer living nearby who wants to play that particular heavy game like 1830 with you. But feel free to do so if you want to put forward your game proposal in Dutch.

Game: I'm a long time player of ASL and always looking for opponents. A lot of people are scared away by the scale and ruleset of the game, but if you have someone who will help you along, it's not that bad. ASL is a system, more than just a boardgame. Entering the world of ASL gives you access to literally thousands of scenario's to play.

If you are interested in learning ASL or play it yourself, I'm always open for a game.

Do you own the game(-s) yourself: Yes, I have a pretty large ASL collection.

Number of players wanted: It's a one on one game, but anyone is welcome.

Playing method: face-to-face preferred, but it's also very playable through VASL (VASSAL) and Skype.

Can you host: I live in Almere and I a mancave to play in.

Want to travel: Sure, within a reasonable distance.

Game: I'm looking for other players who'd like to play some 18xx games. I regularly play short 18xx's on weekday nights, but I hope to find some more players for the longer games (1835, 1880: China, 2038: Tycoons of the Asteroid Belt, etc).
Do you own the game(-s) yourself: Yes. See this geeklist for my collection of 18xx games.
Number of players wanted: About 3 to 5 other players would be ideal for most games.
Playing method: Face-to-face
Can you host: Yes (but probably not until the end of Feb).
Want to travel: Yes. I live in The Hague, but wouldn't mind traveling to Amsterdam/Utrecht/etc. for a game.

I'm not just looking for experienced players. Even if you've never played such a game before, you can come and play. If you want, I can organise a learning game with a short 18xx such as Steam over Holland.

Playing method: Face-to-face.
Can you host: No. My table isn't large enough.
Want to travel: Yes.

Here's an 18xx that I want to single out. With a playing time for newbies of up to 20 hours and a size of 1.20x2.00m for the board alone, this one isn't easy to get to the table. However, I so have the ambition of playing it some time. It will probably take a whole weekend.

Game: Cooperative rpg/action/strategy game, loads of theme, tension and fun. Would be nice to play this with more people.
Do you own the game(-s) yourself: Yes, including the Dunwich, Innsmouth and Miskatonic Horror expansions which can be included.
Number of players wanted: 4-8
Playing method: Face to face. Investment in rules knowledge prior to playing is a big nice-to-have as it saves time explaining the first few rounds.
Playing time: ~6 hours (depending on the number of players)
Can you host: Could be difficult because of large amount of required tabletop space.
Want to travel: Yes, Amsterdam/Haarlem/Utrecht/Den Haag/Leiden/Delft area.

Hihi!

I hope this gets some interest. I'm used to running a mega 14-hour intense game of TI3 about once every 6 months or so. I'm based in Amsterdam. The game takes 8 players 14 hours, so needs significant time commitment, and rules about how to play nicely

(Right now I'm running a game on the 19th October, get in touch quick if you want to join!)

See my description of this epic game here:

Cheers,

Rob

flag msg tools
Game: Firefly the Boardgame (incl. Breaking Atmo Booster)

Do you own the game(-s) yourself: Yes

Number of players wanted: including myself 3 (max.4), I have a promo expansion for a fifth player but the game gets really long, plus the game itself takes up a lot of table space, 13 card decks and an equal number of discard piles.

Playing method: Face to face

Playing time: depends on the number of players, there are different story cards (scenarios) with a play time indication of around 2 hours which I can assure you after having played 2 games is waaaaaaaaaaay optimistic, try 4 hours minimum for a first game.

Can you host: Yes, Haarlem

Want to travel: Yes, (area Randstad)

Short description of the game:
You're a captain on a firefly class space ship flying around the Verse (the board is a map of a solar system) looking for jobs legal or otherwise to make money, in order to do that you have to fly around to different planets, make contacts, hire crew, buy gear and upgrades for your ship.
While looking out for Alliance patrols and Reaver ambushes.
Each game uses a story card with several goals to complete, the first player to complete alle the goals wins.

It helps if you've seen the tv-show and movie.
