Heroscapers at GenCon '06

Posted July 17th, 2006 at 11:46 AM by Grungebob
OK folks, Gencon is less than a month away and I don't know about you, but I can't wait!! Behind the scenes we have been dealing with a rollercoaster ride of challenges and pitfalls trying to put together the best Gencon Heroscape experience possible with our limited talents and resources.

Some of you may remember the Crimson Hawks, and the drama surrounding them, and then we had an experienced Event Organizer that promised a whole lot flash and glitz, and then left. There were some scheduling issues with the events and frankly, there were too many events for us to support so we made many changes.

The result is that we are going to have a total of 9 events with some pretty good prizes. We have a great team of volunteers to run these events and we are going to have fun, and help put Heroscape on the map. Hopefully, we will make new players, and make new friends. There is just something about meeting people in person whom you have known only via the internet for a long time... And I want to get together with all of you each night to socialize and sample the local brew.

I will be there for the whole show and be responsible for all of the events, but they are really what you make of them. The Forsaken waters are our opportunity to teach new players the game and will also undoubtedly be a nice diversion for the youngsters that some parents will bring to the Con. It will also be your best chance to play Heroscape without having to bring your entire collection to Indy. But we will only have master set figures available so you might want to bring your own figs.

Win-a-Wave tourneys are for competitive players who like the thrill of gambling and are a great fix for those who desire quick and challenging play with potential for good reward.

The Gencon Championship is the best bet for big prizes and a good chance to play a lot of players. EVERYONE who is not a volunteer for this event should play in this one. If we do not get a certain minimum amount of players, we will not have the tournament period! I know some of you are interested, and I would hate to see this one get cancelled.

Finally, I would like to point out that the only way that we could make this happen is because of the support and generosity of our sponsor and friend Sandra at housemousegames.com Bless you Sandra, and thank you.

Below is a list of the events along with any details about times, duration and prizes. All events will be held in the Hall A that is upstairs at the convention center. Look for Heroscape maps, and awesome Heroscaper Tshirts, and housemouse banners.

If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask in PM or on the forums.
