  • I am not sure I can make it, but I will bring my board games -- Sheila
  • I would like to see Robo rally. -- ? Looks like we'll need a few experience players. - Dean; I've only played it once I don't mind if the experienced players beat up on me. Wow! It's been reprinted. I just ordered it. -- Sheila :) -- I'll bring my copy -- Jono.
  • I would like to play on Thursday after evening volunteer activities are completed. -- ? Sounds fun, but we may want to choose something light if we're tired from Tutorials and bag stuffing. -- Dean; That's what Apples To Apples is for -- Sheila; Excellent! Carcassonne, Munchkin, and Chinese Checkers may also fit this bill. -Dean -- What time would this be? --Larry
  • I've got Empire Builder, Russian Rails and Lunar Rails. Need external interest of I'm going to haul them, I enjoy these but am still learning. Longer play time. -- Dean
  • I'll bring the games I've mentioned above if there's solid interest; I might have to drive (vs. taking the El) if I'm bringing more than one, though. — Tom; I'm interested in Ticket to Ride, Fluxx and curious about Arkham. - Dean
  • I have Kill Dr. Lucky if I can find it -- Sheila
  • Any folks interested in Power Grid? - Dean
  • I was curious what board game is most like Galcon, or if there's a particular game that would be themed for a Galcon varient? Galcon Event. Hellas?
