paulygcon3: pauly3con (17th - 19th November 2017)

Post  paulyg on Tue 19 Sep 2017, 08:34

Third time's the charm, right?

Two years ago I wrote:

paulyg wrote:Perhaps this is slightly ridiculous but...

A few people have noted (when out at The Cast Are Dice weekend or similar) that "we could just do this but at someone's house - we've got loads of games we haven't played". So I'm doing it! It's vaguely near my birthday, I've got permission and it's all systems go for paulygcon (blame Lizzy for the name).

[...] Come over and play some games. We've got loads we haven't played and you probably have too! We'll do some food and stuff! Come for some of it or all of it! Let me know if you can make it! Don't make me stubbornly play solitaire Firefly on my own all weekend!

I'm pleased to announce that we're going to do this for a third time on the evening of Friday 17th November and all day on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November. Join us for lots of games (with an emphasis on looking through those unplayed piles for those who want to), food, drink and fun. Circle the dates on your SBGC calendar!

Exact timings to be confirmed, but something like 18:00 - 00:00 on the Friday, 12:00 - 00:00 on the Saturday and 12:00 - 21:00 on the Sunday. For those who haven't been before, I live in Greenhill and will PM my address to those who want to come and don't have it. If you think you'll be able to make it then I'd appreciate it if you let me know in this thread so I can work out what to get. Yay!

I think (for reasons of space and time) that might be better separately (hmmm, if only we had regular TI play sessions...) but I'm not going to stop you! I guess it may well be an unplayed game at that time...

It was more a declaration of my attendance than an actual suggestion. I'm hoping to have photosynethsis by Pauly3con...

So what is the USP of this event?

I am up for this!
Not sure I have any tree themed games. Other than squirrel rush. But it's not that great!

So if we are running with the Tree theme this would be my suggestions:

Settlers of Catan - Obvious wood for sheep jokes
Kodama - the TREE spirits
Photosynthesis - Tree based strategy game
Agricola Farmer of the Moor - you have to fell trees to build a farm?
Broomservice - Brooms are made of wood?
Small World - Woodland regions?
Click Clack Lumberjack - Obvious
Coconuts - they grow on trees...
Flick em up Red Rock Tomahawk - had woodland scenery

You don't have to, but he's obviously having so much fun listing them that maybe we should make Aneurin only play them... ;-)
