But what if, instead of stealing from your grandma, you could work together to stop global eradication by dominating a rampaging disease? What if, instead of just throwing some dice and counting combinations, you could rampage through the city of Tokyo, battling other monsters, for well, domination. And like Yahtzee, chuck some cool dice, but instead of numbers you get to breathe fire, use a train as a weapon, or shrink your foes? What if you could hop across the country, collecting cards only to claim railroad lines before your competition. Wait, that doesn't sound like fun. But we swear it is!
You may be familiar with old games, but InstructureCon is about new ideas with Canvas, and we want to also bring you new ideas about, well, having fun. If you haven't tried some new board games, you should. And you get to interact with Instructure Employees and peers from around the globe. If you have and you still read all of this, please free to come, interact, teach, and bring a board game of your own.
Most of all, let's have some fun on the last night of InstructureCon!

Oh man! If I were going to InstructureCon this year, I'd be at this event. I'd even consider bringing Munchkin, Carcassonne or Ticket to Ride. Sadly, I am not attending this year. Gotta let my co-workers have their turn.
Fun! Heard about this from straigle during an Educause event earlier this year. Hopefully when I get up to Utah it will still be going on. My game group is getting King of Tokyo next. Looks like a blast!
My family and I have been playing the cooperative game Forbidden Island and its sequel Forbidden Desert. Super fun - would be willing to bring them if anyone is interested.
Well come and get your game on with us cgaudreau and get a head start learning King of Tokyo at #instcon Game Night! We got KOT about a year ago and love it. I like that it has a sufficient amount of strategy required to offset the luck of the dice rolls. 😉
email@example.com you will be missed. Perhaps we should get a remote game of TTR going?! Deactivated user just picked it up for her android and I have it for iOS... supposedly it is cross platform - Mac/PC/iOS/Android
Here's what we have to look forward to!

1 Can't Stop
1 Carcassonne: South Seas

1 Escape: The Curse of the Temple

That was a fun conversation. I had KoT and now have KoNY which is...different? Not sure it's better, just different. I might bring it on site just to have the alternative.
Or I could bring Le Havre if someone wants a dry game?
Bring it on! If one of the KoT table likes it a lot, maybe they'll like the variation!
Haha! Le Havre. I bought the game for iOS years ago when it came out but still do not know how to play. I'm in love with his Agricola game though, so I've heard that I'd like that one as well.
