The past few years, a good friend of mine:

have been going to PrezCon, in Charlotesville, VA. We always end up bring a variety of games, most of which we never end up playing, but always find ourselves forgetting a few games which we wanted to bring. To help fix that, I thought a list here would be handy, and before we left for the convention, it'd provide a convenient checklist.

In addition- heck, this is what we're bringing. If anyone sees us playing these, and are interested in other games we're bringing, you can probably ask to borrow them (at least from me).

Rob, add what else you're bringing, and let me know what else you want me to bring!

Specifically, we're probably going to be playing the Stalingrad scenarios. We had been talking about joining the tournament there, but I don't think we'll have a good enough grasp of the rules in time to really play effectively. However, playing the Stalingrad games will be a blast enough!

I'll be bringing this.

Got this for Christmas, and since the Designer chided me for not playing it, I'm going to make an effort to bring this out and play it some during the convention.

I'm bringing this.

We enjoyed are games of this quite a bit, no reason not to bring it, just in case we have time for some more games of it.

I'll bring it.

I'm bringing this one. I pre-ordered the game, thinking I'd really enjoy the system, but after opening it, I'm having a hard time getting excited about playing it. I'm not sure what it is, but it's just not as interesting as I thought it would be. However, I'm going to try to press on, and get it on the table while there.

I met a guy last year who was playing in the Panzer Grenadier tournament. Although I don't have the time or skill to play in such an event, we're going to try to get a game in while I'm there. I figure this is the one to bring, since there's so many options for scenarios (112!)

I'm bringing this.

I talked about bringing this, in case we meet any of our friends down there. Always good to have a game that can handle more than 2 players.

I'm bringing it, most likely.

We tried playing the Avalanche Press re-make of this last year, but gave up due to complete lack of enjoyment. Maybe we'll have time to play the original, and I'm sure we'll bring it just in case.

Rob will probably bring this- his version is actually punched.

Well, we tried to bring this out last year, but couldn't figure out the rules. Rob has been trying to learn the rules 100% so that he can teach it and play it while we're there. He's really into the historical period, so he's extra interested in playing this.

He's bringing it.

What about this one?

We actually went out of our way, adding like an hour to our trip, to find a copy before we arrived last year. We can probably bring it if you think we'll play it.

Was asked to teach this one, and since I know Rob has some interest in trying this again (despite the DISASTEROUS result of our first attempt), seems like a good time to bring it.

Of course, I'll need to work extra to get the rules down for it. Thankfully, once I read it, the rules weren't hard to remember.

Not sure this will actually see the table, but will bring it, just in case. Not often I have a game available I can easily handle the rules questions on (so long as I stick to the Starter Kit rules!).

Hey Rob, you should bring this, so that you can get your butt kicked in it again.

For some variety in era, Rob suggested this as a possibility. Not a bad choice, methinks, but we will see after I get through the rules.
