I signed up to "GM" a few games at KublaCon this year. Kubla is a 4 day game-a-thon held at the Hyatt near SFO. Here are the times they gave me:

Mage Knight Board Game: The Lost Legion, Friday 3pm-8pm, 4 players

Through the Ages: a Story of Civilization, Sunday 4pm-9pm, 4 players


Apparently GMs aren't supposed to play unless they are short on players. Well phooey on that I say.  Anyway if I get enough people to sign up to make these official events, I get a free pass, woohoo!

I guess you can't actually sign up for tabletop games until the event starts but you can see the schedule here:

Last year I was there but was a little underwhelmed by the ratio of tabletop board games to RPGs and miniatures games. It was a little difficult to find an open game to play by just randomly walking around. So this year I plan to be a little more actively recruiting for games in advance.
So far I have only posted the two games, and I know Saturday there is some 18xx going on which I plan to partake in at least for a while. Also I think it'd be nice to bust out some other longer games that we never get a chance to play, if anyone has suggestions I can create an event.

    Would like to learn Through the ages, but if only 4 players then sounds competitive to get a seat. Is it a non-learning game? If not at Kubla, then another time.

      yea both TTA and MK will probably be learning games, depends who we get, I might sit out. I don't expect there will be too many people who want to play a 4 hour game, so there should be plenty of room :)

    There clearly needs to be several weekend-long games of "I'm the Banana."

    Groups of three distribute cards on Friday afternoon/evening, convince the entire weekend long, and finally resolve on Monday morning. Bribes (outside of games) are welcome and encouraged.

    All sign ups for table top games will be available after 1pm on Friday. You can sign up for RPG events in advance. If you have any questions about KublaCon ask me, I am the Boardgames Coordinator and have been on staff for close to a decade now. KUBLA!!

    Gotcha. It's my first time going so I'm a newbie on how it all works. Looking forward to seeing you all!

    Yeah Joe is right. Unless you are playing certain RPGs or LARPs, all the sign ups will be at the site at a certain room during the convention. I also think the first games to go tend to be even more low key and free form for sign ups.

    actually, im not sure if you can sign up for the kubla events. I think they might only be doing signups for RPGs, not tabletop games. anyway we'll probably figure it out when it starts :)

    I will be there too! Definitely doing the 18xx on Sat and Werewolf at least 1-2 nights. Also I will cross into the dark side of RPGS for a bit, but I would love to try Mage Knight!
