Need to rotate the games a bit more, Games like take 6 and Bonanza should hit the table more often since they have more popular game play value to newcomers (sorry Edwin, but H & B doesn't look like an game that will get much gametime to a newbie).
If you want people to try rarer games, can set up a few tables to demo them but don't let them stay on the table too long as it will be a waste of playing space (I recall a lot of empty tables to the right of the eurogame section). Just demo the things at certain interval and move on.

noted...



wish the organizers could tell us more accurately what demographic to expect!



as it is, the majority of the crowd were school kids - mostly school girls - in which case, ayheng is right - hottest race would have been better as it has been tried and tested in panglobal road shows in east coast!
