This may be done either through diplomacy (they join willingly), or military conquest (they join, period). The Attack! Expansion adds quite a bit of detail while retaining playability.

Play is similar to Illuminati except players play cards as part of the ever-expanding “Net” in the center of the table instead of having individual card stacks. Players use indials to break into systems and gain root access. Upgrade your hacking tools, deal with other hackers for access, phreak others onto your system, etc. It's all part of the game.

* Fri 11:00 pm - Sat 1:00 am *Huron Room* Days of Wonder Shadows over Camelot *GameMaster: ShaunKlein* (3 to 7 players) In most games, players compete against each other to achieve victory. Shadows over Camelot proposes a journey of a very different kind, where you and your fellow players, as Knights of the Round Table, will collaborate to jointly defeat the game! At first glance, this task seems simple enough. After all, shouldn’t a band of young and noble Knights - fleet of foot and sound of mind - easily defeat a game that plays itself? Alas your quest is further complicated by the ever-present possibility of a Traitor in your midst, biding his time, waiting to strike at the worst possible moment. But enough words! Don your cloak, climb astride your warhorse and gallop into the Shadows to join us in Camelot!

* Sat 2:00 am - Sat 6:00 am *Huron Room* GMT Games Here I Stand: Wars of the Reformation 1517-1555 *GameMaster: ShaunKlein* (3 to 6 players) Here I Stand: Wars of the Reformation 1517-1555 is the first game in over 25 years to cover the political and religious conflicts of early 16th Century Europe.

This game covers all the action of the period using a unique card-driven game system that models both the political and religious conflicts of the period on a single point-to-point map.

* Sun 11:00 am - Sun 1:00 pm *Huron Room* Pegasus Press My Dwarves Fly *GameMaster: DrewHappli* (2 to 4 players) My Dwarves Fly is not a game about grace or style; it is a game about grabbing gold and then more gold! To find gold, you need to be victorious in battles. You win your battles by means of creatures that also find gold if you win the battle. You need to roll high to win your battles, but you need to roll low to find any additional gold. Thus, creatures are the most important part of this game. You cannot do battle without them, and you cannot find gold without them. It is quite possible to be nice to the others while playing. Then again, you don't have to. You probably shouldn't - for those who don't play nice and fair tend to win more often, just as in real life.
