I have an Origins badge and Board Room ribbon, and I have giant pyramids. I would like to find a way to bring those things together. I don't have anything on the schedule, but if you're interested in doing something giant-pyramidy, especially Zendo, let me know. I'm planning to do things in the Board Room, since that's where I'll be anyway and I've already talked to people at CABS and GAMA about that location.
Please respond to this thread or at one of the following links at BoardGameGeek.
Other Giant Pyramids games:
(They are entries on the same GeekList, so you probably only need to follow one of them.)
I won't be bringing my Giant set, but I will merrily hang out with you and play things! I could bring my Brobdingnagian chessboard bandanna (which is a king size bed sheet with a grid on it).
I've been meaning to make a volcano board too, actually, so this might be the motivation to do that. Normally when I play volcano at conventions, i use a ton of duct tape to mark out an area n the fFloor. But a nice bed sheet really is better fFor quick setup and tear-down.
That is, unless you have appropriately sized grids to use, yourself?
I don't have enough pyramids for Giant Volcano, but something like Freeze Tag or Pharoah could be done on a Giant Volcano board. My Giant pyramids consist of four monochrome stashes. I have Giant Zendo stones and I have a Giant Gnostica deck, but that's the extent of my Giant supplies. When I need dice, I have some Big dice that aren't Giant, but they work.
I hope you guys managed to get some giant games going - we missed seeing everyone at Origins!
It never seemed to be the right time to bring out the giant pyramids. The closest we came was on Wednesday when the convention center was closed for a while because of a fire in the basement. While waiting for the all-clear, a few friends and I grabbed a bit of floor in the walkway from the Hyatt and played Zendo. We used regular sized pyramids, but it was on the floor.
Thanks for sending Fluxx: The Board Game. I played it a couple of times at Origins, and I've managed to play it a couple of times since. People are interested in trying it even if they don't like Fluxx. I can only imagine the number of times I would've played it if Looney Labs had been at Origins.
So, no giant pyramids at Origins, as far as I know, but we're on the schedule for Buckeye Game Fest in September.
