Anyone want to see if Vikingar is available from Jackbro for me?

I don't see JackBro on the GenCon vendor sheet.

Just added Mysterium and Machi Koro to my list. I found them by accident when checking out other reviews. Therein lies the danger!

Of course, that doesn't mean they actually have a booth. :oops:

Machi Koro is samey and boring.

I just impulse bought BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA. My FLGS had one copy left and I couldn't resist. Considering that was one I had budget set aside for at GenCon just in case I ran across it, I figured I might as well buy it now and save having to ship it. I probably won't get a chance to play it until I get back, but on the other hand maybe having a new game waiting at home will temper my spending at the con.
Spoiler:
It won't.

Maybe, but sometimes I need a game I can throw on the table quickly and without having to review a bunch of rules. Fluxx works, but isn't for everyone. Love Letter and Exploding Kittens are good, but get old.
