Dice Tower Con 2017 Scheduling & Gamer Meetup List
for Boardgames, Wargames, Teaching Games (and other big'uns)


July 5 - 9th - Caribe Royale Resort - Buena Vista, FL



It's time for another great year! I hope this list is helpful for your scheduling needs!!


Official Events Schedule:
http://www.dicetowercon.com/event-schedule/

Facebook Group:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/184114715004724/


I've been asked once again to help organize the gaming scheduler for the sixth Dice Tower Con. Now TWICE the size!

Why this List?

This list is to encourage attendees to post & schedule heavier games that they would like to organize prior to arriving at the Con. Due to the nature of Open Gaming conventions, the ability to get meatier games to the table is always a challenge. Often due to the dynamic nature of the attendees, formal schedule, etc. For most Euro strategy games, pick-up sessions are quite easy at an open gaming convention. But by starting this list a few months in advance, players can start reviewing rules, assign players to specific countries/characters/etc.

This list should be used to post open games that require a larger block of time (3-5+ hours) **These are not for OFFICIAL events and games that will be listed on the Dice Tower Con Schedule .

Got a wargame or an old Avalon Hill game that you've been dying to have hit the table? How about the game of Die Macher or Mega Civilization you've always wanted to try? What about a game of Fiasco? This list is for you!

Please also use this list to coordinate informal teaching/learning games for newbies.

Organization of the Geeklist

The games are listed in ALPHABETICAL order so that you can scroll down the list and see if a game you want to play is being organized or not. If it is, you can post a comment showing your interest. If it's not, you can Add an Item and put a game on the list.

It is also usually a good idea to Subscribe to the specific games you are interested in playing, rather than the entire list. This way, you will be notified only when there is a post to the specific games you want, rather than all games and comments.

For particularly organization-heavy games in which players, roles, and other stuff must be handled prior to the con, it might be good to have several entries of a game. You can look at previous years' lists here:

2016 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist
2015 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist
2014 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist
2013 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist
2012 Dice Tower Con Game Scheduler Geeklist


How to Post

Some useful information to include in game listings:

Game Title (added via the Geeklist Item)
# of Players
Day/Time/Location to Meet (This will likely be 'TBD' until we get closer to the Con)
Expected Playing Time (Duration)
Requested Experience Level of Players (i.e. Beginners allowed, Expert, etc.)

Room Locations

I encourage you to indicate a room and the meeting time. Here is a floorplan of the rooms available.

http://www.cariberoyale.com/d/cariberoyaleresponsive/media/c...

Mules

If you are willing to bring a copy of a needed game, please do! Many of the games on this list may be scarce, or not a typical title for the Con library. Obviously, older titles may require a Mule. If you are a local wargamer, or travelling by car to Orlando, supplies such as plexiglass, extra dice, dice towers, are greatly appreciated. The die-hard Grognards probably have their own tweezers. laugh

Requesting a Game

If you aren't planning to host a specific game, but would like to help get it organized, please REPLY in the comments section your request for playing a certain game. You should have pretty good success getting someone willing to set up a game if there is enough interest for that particular title.


I've set up a Dice Tower Convention Attendees guild for you to browse other attendees' collections. Join this guild and you can request games for other folks to bring.

Here is the 2017 Dice Tower Library: http://www.dicetowercon.com/the-dice-tower-convention-game-l...

In 1846, players will invest in various train companies. The majority shareholder of each company decides how it will use its resources to build track, stations, run trains, and whether it pays the shareholders. The aim is to end the game with the greatest personal wealth, both in cash and share value. This title focuses on running for large revenues in the end-game, routes running across the map (east-to-west) being key.

1846 is a relatively short and gentle introduction to 18XX, although it has a somewhat more complicated ruleset compared to, e.g., 1830. Many of the basic concepts apply to other titles, but it has few close relatives.

This will be a teaching game, where I'll try to provide some general guidance and attempt to warn players of disastrous moves.

In 1889, players will invest in various train companies. The majority shareholder of each company decides how it will use its resources to build track, stations, run trains, and whether it pays the shareholders. The aim is to end the game with the greatest personal wealth, both in cash and share value. Various approaches are possible for 1889's endgame, including running for large revenues or just maneuvering for cheap trains to run in the end.

1889 has a similar ruleset to 1830, but is a shorter and somewhat gentler introduction to 18XX. It's also the title I mostly highly recommend for new players; much of the skills you can learn from it transfer to other titles.

This will be a teaching game, where I'll try to provide some general guidance and attempt to warn players of disastrous moves.

4. Board Game: 7 Wonders [Average Rating:7.84 Overall Rank:36]

PLAYING WITH LEADERS, CITIES AND GREAT PROJECTS -- NOT BABEL - this is a game to learn these expansions, not to learn the base game!

I am a fan of the basic 7 WONDERS game, but am looking to gain a little more experience playing with the expansions in combination. Looking for players who know the base game -- experience with the expansions is not required.

The Leaders expansion adds Leader cards that are selected before each round of the base game;

Cities adds diplomacy which allows a player to avoid military combat and also provides an additional set of black cards that provide enhanced benefits to the other strategies; adding the black cards adds one turn to each round to the base game;

Great Projects is one of the two expansions included within the Babel release; Great Projects are collaborative projects, one per round, that players may or may not help build; contributing to a successful great project reaps rewards; not contributing to an unsuccessful great project has its consequences.

I don't care to play with the Babel expansion, and it is not recommended that the Babel and Great Projects expansions be played together.

Thursday evening, July 6th, 7:30 pm, Room to be announced
Looking for at least 4 and up to 7 players

Matt, Obviously we can spilt the games up so that there is an even number of players. Also, if we don't have enough players for two games we can combine the games to one. We can play at the same location so we can teach the new players. Thanks, Damian

This has been sitting on my shelf of shame for nine months or so. Looking to see what this one is all about. Most likely I will have not played it by the convention date, so looking for someone in the group really comfortable with the rules. I'll be well versed in them, but having never played, I won't be that comfortable teaching nor will I be that comfortable navigating rules questions during game play. I'm willing to play as a hunter or as Dracula.

Liberty or Death: The American Insurrection

Have you ever wanted to try out a war game? Too afraid of hexes, and long complicated strategies?! Not to worry, that isn't found here! This is a great Euro-War game hybrid, published in a very high quality production by GMT. This is a COIN (COunter INsurgency) game, which I bought to play solo, and have done so several times. I want to play with others, but my play group has not shown much support. I can teach, and would prefer new players/or lightly experienced players.

This game has complex strategy, but the rules aren't too bad, and can be taught relatively quickly. We'll spend more time on strategy than rules.

# of Players - 4
Day/Time/Location to Meet - TBD
Expected Playing Time - 3-6 hours (depending on scenario)
Requested Experience of Players - Newbies welcome, or players with a few playthroughs, if someone with a lot of experience can teach us that would be awesome.

Alt?:

I am familiar with the rules, but may have to make checks with the rule books to know for sure on some things.

I also volunteer to play as France, to help other players in early turns.

# of Players: Four
Day/Time/Location to Meet: Thursday, July 6, 9:30am, room TBD
Expected Playing Time: 120-180 minutes
Requested Experience Level of Players: I doubt anyone will have played it by then, so of course beginners are welcome. This will most likely be my first time playing the game as well, so it will be a learning game for all.

This slot is very much TBD. I don't know if my kickstarter copy of the game will arrive in time for DTC. It is supposed to arrive in June but we all know how reliable kickstarter is.

Who's up for a little Lovecraftian madness? I'll be running a 2nd edition game that uses a tablet app and soundtrack. Don't let the need for an app to turn you away, it really makes the game much less fiddly to play.

I'm open to any scenario. If no one has played before, we can do the intro, otherwise we can pick another. Let me know in the comments if you have a preference.

I'll post the location once I peruse the convention center map and see if there is a small, quiet room to play in. It really helps set the mood for the game.

Players: 2-5
Playing time: 3+ hours
Location: TBD

Saturday 7/8, 9:00 am

# of Players - 2
Day/Time/Location to Meet - TBD/The War Room
Expected Playing Time - 4 hours
Requested Experience Level of Players - Any. This will be a first play for myself.

Let's see if there are any hardcore grognards out there. I'm on the fence about this one. Every once in a while I feel the urge to go back to my roots of hex and counter wargames and I've always been a sucker for modern era. I have not read the rules, not sure I want to read the rules, but I'm willing to make the effort if someone else really, really wants to try this.
