Last year I was lucky enough to attend the premier boardgaming convention in the US, BGGcon. I will be there again starting tomorrow. Alas, I think it's unlikely that I will do much updating in media res, although like last year I will do a full post mortem (you can see last years starting here.) It should be an amazing 5 days.
To whet your appetite, here are a couple of games I am very interested in going in:
- Troyes. I've mentioned before that I like dice games, and in this game each color of dice represents a particular class of citizen. All of which can do different things. Looks right up my alley.
- Navegador. It looks a little like a combination of Finca and Endeavor, both games I really like.
- 7 Wonders. A civilization building (and destroying) version of Dominion? Sounds interesting to me!
- Vinhos. A game about making wine. Not my favorite theme, but this one has a lot of buzz around it.
- Merkator. The theme has been done to death middle ages trading empires, but this is from the guy that did Agricola and Le Havre, so I am automatically interested.
- Junta – Viva El Presidente. Just because I love the original so.
So, see everybody some time after Thanksgiving! Enjoy the holiday.
