When I originally posted my list, it wasn't so much that I want to play those games in particular, more that I want to try some games I would be less likely to encounter otherwise. I played mostly 1st edition AD&D before I stopped for many years. I tried some second edition but 3rd and 4th I never played. And there were many other games I missed out on. 1st edition is what I am most familiar with and most comfortable playing and I know there will be many of those games being run. Cons are perfect places to get to try a lesser known game and that is really all I was doing, throwing out some suggestions. I'm open to pretty much anything, really. If someone wanted to run Dogs in the Vineyard or Bunnies and Burrows (I hope I got the name right) I would be willing to give it a shot. I just don't want to see a whole bunch of people submit really obscure games now and get pissed at me when I can't sign up for several in the same time slot and they can't find enough other people interested in playing.
By the same token, I don't want to play nothing but some of the more unusual games either. I'm sure I will sign up for some 1st ed stuff or some Next games. At Gary Con, my Saturday was dedicated to 1e. Other than that, I got into some Star Frontiers, Mutant Future, Monster Hunter International, GURPS run as a Western miniatures game, BECMI, 2e and Petal Throne, so I was able to get some good variety in my gaming. That's what I'm looking for here.
