You got It! I'm coming back. I'll be running old favorites like Apples, Smart Ass, Wits & Wagers, Boggle Deluxe and Man Bites Dog. Plus some new ones, Tsuro, Moods, The New Yorker Caption Game, The Joke Game, Loaded Questions, Perfect Sense, Yamslam, and new versions of Scattergories and Trivial Pursuit. Hope to see you all there.

Just submitted my slew of Looney Labs games, plus another two demos of AMPUTHEATRE, the World's Goriest Board Game!

Okay - any idea on when the board game schedule will be shown? I know several people have submitted games, including myself. I'll be submitting more for Saturday afternoon.

If you submitted things and they're not there, It might be a bug.
A few weeks ago the entire schedule was empty even tho there was stuff submitted.
I emailed the webmaster and some fixes were done. But maybe not all?

Eileen,

I can GM some games if you need me to. I can host Dixit, which is a good party game (sort of a visual Apples to Apples) and kind of laid back, so it would probably do well on Sunday afternoon. (Last year that we were scrambling around for something to play late Sunday and ended up playing Go Nuts -- barking our heads off for an hour!)

Is the Ticket to Ride tourney being held again? It's on the Ubercon website, but I think that the tournament info is just old stuff from last year. There's nothing on the Day's of Wonder website to verify it. If Matt is not doing the tournament, I'd be willing to GM Ticket to Ride USA. It would be really nice if Ubercon has a copy (copies) of the game and we can run multiple games at the same time. I know there is enough interest -- there were three concurrent games in the tournament last year.

I just checked 5 minutes ago and there are no boardgames posted to the schedule.

Okay, some of the games are posted, but there's a couple of mistakes with my games. I wanted a couple of my games to run after midnight and they ended up at 9 am on the schedule. I've e-mailed Eileen about this to try to rectify it.

I checked my records and it looks like the board game collection has Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride: Europe. It is most likely that we only have one copy of each, though I can't say for sure.

If anyone else is curious about if we have a game to check out, let me know and I'll look it up.

All righty, seven of the eleven games I submitted are posted. Just a couple of things:

Loaded Questions has that Adam guy running it at midnight Sat/Sun. I'm running it.
Trivial Pursuit - Bet You Know It has the wrong time posted - but five people signed up for it. Leave it where it is - Saturday at 7 pm.

Still waiting to see on the schedule:
Wits & Wagers - Fri 8 pm
Say Anything - Fri 9 pm
Smart Ass - Sat. 8 pm
Apples to Apples - Sat. 9 pm

I'll wait for these games to appear before I submit others.

Here's my Friday lineup. An asterisk * means it's the first time the game is being run at Ubercon - by me anyway:

Friday:

7 pm - T-shirt Game
8 pm - Wits and Wagers
9 pm - Say Anything
10 pm - Moods*
11 pm - The New Yorker Caption Game*
12 mid - The Joke Game*

Saturday:

Noon - Yamslam*
1 pm - Boggle Deluxe
2 pm - Scattergories Categories*

8 pm - Smart Ass
9 pm - Apples to Apples

Look for these and other games by me on the Board Games schedule.
All games are in hour-long slots.

Mike & GnTar,

Looks good. I am also the person working on the ubercon booklet, so I put the appropriate designations by AMPUTHEATRE (mature audiences) and The Joke Game (adult sense of humor needed) -- just in case we have any walk-ins that are solely going by the booklet and not the website.
