2004-01-13: Any preferences between Elfenland(0), Tikal(0), Vinci(0), Junta(1) ?  I'll probably just bring all 4.
2004-02-03: Any preferences between Vinci, History of the World, Munchkin
2004-02-17: We havn't played History of the World for a while.  Are there 5 or 6 people who would like to turn up before 8:30 this week to give it a go?  Doulgas and Alex have both expressed interest so far.
CH probably would, never having played it before, but regrettably won't be at GE this week. Probably will be next week, if people would like then.

I should update this.  I have quite a few more.



Games that can be brought along to GamesEvening


Request system: Douglas has lots of games, and so has set up this page to allow ToothyWikizens who attend GamesEvening to indicate preferences as to which games he should bring.  To make a request, add your name and optionally a date on the "Request:" line for each game. A date will indicate a request for Douglas to bring that game on that date specifically, and should take the form "Nov4th", "Dec11th", or suchlike. A name with no date will indicate a general non-time-specific request for that game.  Mark your name in bold to indicate a strong request or active desire for that game.  A non-bold name will indicate general interest or preference for that game.  You can request games whether or not you've played them before.
None of these will be taken as a *commitment* to play that game that week, because of the dynamics of when games start, although Douglas may get unhappy if he keeps bringing requested games which don't get played.  Please do make requests rather than staying silent, though.
Example: if I want to indicate general non-time-specific interest in a game I haven't played, I'll add:
Request: AlexChurchill
Example: if I really want a game of this game on the 11th November, I'll add:
Request: AlexChurchill Nov11th

Quick question (the answer might not be particularly quick to find...). How large is your map board? I've found an online image of the Advanced Civilization map, but printing it at original size makes most of the Greek territories far to small to even consider playing on. --CH
My board is [this one].  The greek islands can have cities built on them, you just have to be careful and use lots of boats.--DR
