Did you notice that many people in software love board and card games? This year we're taking this and running with it - we're doing a whole-day board and card game event, before the main CppCon conference!

Come to the Gaylord Rockies and participate in the selection of board and card games we're bringing along!

## Board games
  • Saboteur (2 player)
  • Oatmeal's Exploding Kittens (2-5 player)
  • Loot Letter (2-4 player)
  • The Resistance (5-10 player)
  • Coup
  • Shadow Hunters
  • Jump Drive
  • Hanabi
  • Secret Hitler
  • Codenames: Pictures
  • One Night: Ultimate Werewolf

## Card games
  • Fluxx
  • Magic: The Gathering (Core2020 draft 12 player, Chaos draft 12 player, Unstable draft 12 player, EDH any number of players)

As Magic the Gathering is a bit of a big card game to just list as a single entry, we've decided to structure it a bit more. We'll be doing Magic the Gathering for any level of experience with it. You can join your first Magic the Gathering draft at 10AM, tailored towards beginners. If you've played it before, join the 3PM Chaos Draft for a more complicated card pool and challenging opponents. Those who have built their own Commander / EDH deck, bring it along - you won't be alone! There will be a cube of Unstable for those who appreciate a bit more silliness too. If you've never played this before, watch the Extra Credits introduction to Magic: the Gathering at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4uXnVXcI70&list=PLtmG3-YP1ACYqXhubayli68h1h6xg3BPZ The drafts are free to join for anyone. Because of visa reasons it is not possible to retain the cards you draft, nor to pay for them. My visa won't allow for anything construable as commercial, so I have to make sure it's not.

Note that, despite the names of the games implying some very weird things will be going on, the Code of Conduct does apply and you will be asked to keep your emotion and language under control. Keep your explosions and Nazis to the games in which those apply.
