Ohio Heavy Con is designed as a local/regional convention where people will have the chance to play heavy games. It runs from Friday, February 26 at 12 pm to Sunday, February 28 at 9 pm. This will be our first year and we're hoping to gets lots of people interested in playing all sorts of heavy games.

What is a heavy game? Well, I'm not interested in getting into that argument (at least not here). So, for this list, "heavy" means any game that's hard to get played at a random game night. Some games I expect to see on this list include TI3, Advanced Civilization, 18XX, Splotter, Arkham Horror, Formula D, etc. However, if someone wants to do a Reiner Knizia marathon (ok, mini-marathon since this is only a 3-day event), that's fine too. The only catch is that you've got a copy of the game and can find other people to play with.


Here's how it works:
*Add an item containing the game you own and want to play, and include specifics, such as the number of players, expected play time, level of experience, and so on
*Keep track of folks who've agreed to play in your game entry, so we can all see if a game is full. It's TOTALLY OK to plan multiple sessions if you're so inclined
*Work with your players to coordinate a time and place for your game

That's it! As you sign up, be mindful of how much real time is involved in games, including setup, tear down, and possibly waiting for one or more of the other players before you begin.

I'll start keeping a schedule up top here as we start to identify times. Until then, get those gears working and plan Fun Things!

**if you don't own a game but are hoping someone else does, add a comment at the bottom of the geeklist. Depending on the game, there's a decent chance some one else will have a copy that they'd be happy to get played.



Updates:
1. Nathan has kindly put together a spreadsheet (HeavyCon - Ohio - 2016 Schedule[/q]) where we can more easily track what games are scheduled when. Feel free to add your games once they've got a firm time.
2. We're currently at 8 people pre-registered for the event. Please, please, either paypal the pre-registration fee to jsokolica@yahoo.com or call Epic Loot and give them your credit card information. We really would like to know how many people to expect.
3. Looks like t-shirts won't be available for pre-order. We'll have a few available at the event. If people like them and we run out, we can have some more printed and mailed.

I've only managed to get this played once so far. Mechanically it's simple but trying to figure out the alliances at the end makes this a game won more by who you've gotten relationships with then by the number of votes you've gotten. It's also got great flavor text!

Time: 3 hours

Saturday 12pm (noon)

Hoping I can find some others interested in learning this. Read the rules several times and taught a 4 player once, but we only played the first turn before stopping.

3 Hour Play time +/- 1 hr depending on rules teaching

Like to play this 4 player on Saturday. Will be playing with expansion. Generals, hidden dragon runes and Hold X for 1 year victory conditions for sure. Can teach, but it's a lot to take in so please glance through the rule book please.

5-6 Hour Play time

Hey Train Gamers! This has been recommended to me over and over again but I don't really know any train gamers that live in Cleveland. Does someone have a copy and would be willing to run a scenario for me?

So, I'd like to try something a little different. None of the doctor's games qualify as heavy (by almost any definition), but how about several together?

I've got Tigris & Euphrates, Samurai, Through the Desert, Modern Art, Amun Re, Medici, and Stephenson's Rocket. That's 7 games! Anybody up for trying them one after the other? I'd be looking for a total of 4 dedicated players.

(p.s. I may throw Princes of Florence in my bag as well just in case)

The box says 30 minutes per player which is actually pretty accurate. Can go all the way up to 7 which would take about 4-4.5 hours including setup and rules instruction if need be. Great with any number. I have both expansion sets put out by mayfair

Can't have all Splotter and no Sierra Madre....

This game can take 5 but might be best to hold at 4. I have the large Zazzle map so we will need plenty of space. Game doesn't take too long for experienced players but better book 4 hours just in case.

I can do this any of the days. Please state your preference if you sign up.

Let's set this for Friday night at 4. May adjust depending how late we can stay.

3 player game. Looks like we have a quorum.

1.Ted
2. Wendell
3. Jimmy

Let me know which day(s) and time(s) you prefer. I am sure we will find a slot. I am thinking 3 or so hours should work....

Shall we tentatively set this for Sunday from 9AM to 1PM? That leaves Saturday open.

OK, Heavy Ohio. I have a playtest copy of Cataclysm, which is a wild & woolly strategic level wargame on GMT's P500. I'm willing to teach and set up a game. I don't have a time/date decided yet, would like to gauge interest (please comment below).

I'm thinking the 1939 scenario. Should be do-able in four hours or less, with some rules explanation in advance by me.

23. Board Game: Here I Stand [Average Rating:7.91 Overall Rank:280]
Board Game: Here I Stand
One of my favorites, but really only works with exactly 6 players. If the game goes the full time, it can take 8+ hours. Their is a victory check every turn ( after 4th ). Both times I played it ended on a victory check, once after 4 hours, once after 6 hours. This one I strongly recommend any new player to read this before: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/60889/here-i-stand-20...
I am thinking due to the time, it would be best to start this early on Saturday, but am open to alternate suggestions.

24. Board Game: Fire in the Lake [Average Rating:8.07 Overall Rank:411]
Board Game: Fire in the Lake
one of my favorites, works best with 4. up to 4 hours play time, has victory checks and often ends sooner. takes about 30 minutes to explain to a new player. I have taught it to new players twice and their understanding seems to solidify within a couple turns. I am bringing a copy.

Sat 1pm. as people commit I will list them.

25. Board Game: War of the Ring: Second Edition [Average Rating:8.49 Overall Rank:12]
Board Game: War of the Ring: Second Edition
This is a 2 player game that can take up to 4 hours with a new person, under 3 with experienced. Caveat, this is the 3rd game I put up, and my personal scheduling priorities will be for the other 2, since it is easier to get 1 other player outside of this con to play this.
