The Birds of a Feather sessions for cf.Objective() were just announced, and my suggestion was accepted. So we'll be having a BoF session on board and card games. We did this last year and it was such a big hit that we're doing it again.
I will be bringing a bunch of games you're welcome to bring some too.
Here is what I plan to bring:
- Roll Through the Ages
- Risk - Vintage
- Trivial Pursuit - Millenium Edition
- Dungeons and Dragons
I encourage others to bring their favorite games. Unlike last year, this BoF is scheduled to run pretty much as late as we want to go. Last year we could only schedule two hours (we ended up going for four). This year I believe the room is being reserved until the wee hours of the morning. So even though on the BoF schedule this BoF is only listed for 1 hour, it will actually run for 5+ hours. Awesome.
Since I cannot, obviously, spend the whole session teaching people to play all of these games, I would LOVE to get some volunteers who know these games or are willing to learn them to sign up to "host" a game. One or two hosts per game would be great. Also, feel free to offer to host your own game of whatever you like.
We'll be in the big room so we can have several games going at once and not bump into each other too much. Last year I think we had at least 5 games going in different areas of the room with no problem. We likely had room for more.
Please feel free to add a comment to volunteer to host a game and to add the game you want to bring.
Note: I will also be brining some very simple pick-up games that take a short time to learn and I'll bring a normal decks of cards. So even if you can't stay the whole time or want to play something simple, please stop in.
These will include:
- Catherdral (two-player)
- Normal cards (Spades, Hearts, Cribbage, etc)
- Spite and Malice
- Zombie Dice
Last year this was so much fun. Please come join us either right away or after the other BoF sessions. Drop in any time, grab a game and have a blast.
