Matthias- That last question is the only one worth answering, and we already know the answer.

My scape stuff is all packed. I didnít realized I owned that many Roman archers...

Looking forward to seeing most of you! Iím pretty stoked for the old man tourney. Iíve got all the Medicare flyers and AARP pamphlets ready to go. Also thereís a free colposcopy clinic for the winner.

Last min but coming! Unfortunately I will be demoing for Restoration Games (co-founded by Rob Daviau of Heroscape fame) from 6-11 PM Thurs, Fri, Sat. - Dinosaur Tea Party, Fireball Island, Conspiracy, Downforce (visit me in Hall D if you have time)

Most the morning events are already sold out - ones I can do are
  • Thursday flex
  • Friday C3G (I'd do but have to borrow armies but would prefer to do HoB or Unique tournament if room)
  • Friday main event first 3 hours (I have to leave to Demo games)
  • Saturday Speed Scape (no way a team of me and friend will make finals)
  • Sunday team-up
Question - is it OK for either:
  • I only play first 3 games of main event. I will sign up last min as I don't want to take last ticket. But I have a feeling others will drop off after 3 or 4 games (if they loose 3 games) so might be OK to even up early games.
  • A friend who is coming (Austin who came with me last time) might only want to play 1/2 the tourney so he could take over for me.

We still have 9 tickets left for the main event and the truth is we can accomadate a few over that if need be. Why don't you both buy tickets for the main event even if you only play the first three rounds to help support Heroscape. Ticket sales drive the ability for us to continue to have events. I encourage you to get tickets for any events you plan on playing in even if you are only playing for the first 3 rounds.

LW, you would also agree that "dropping" is common and goes back to the earliest days of 'Scape tournaments at GC. Right? I've been reading about it on these boards forever. People want to play at the 'Con, but they can't stay the whole time because there's so much to do. This community, as far as I can recall, has always encouraged people to play as long as they can, and then drop (without shame!) when they wanted or needed to.

We are hoping that with the 6 rounds that people stay around longer....you can lose at least 2 games and still make day 2.

I would like people to play out events until the end, but it isn't a big deal when people drop. My hope is that people are playing Heroscape because they love the game and not always just to win a tournament, but I completely get it when there are conflicts.

My highest priority is for us to keep being able to offer Heroscape events at Gencon. This is directly related to the number of tickets we sell so therein lies my motivation. Now go buy more tickets!!!!

Both Take 2 and HoTB Unique have sold out for Friday at 10AM, but the C3G tournament only has 1 entry. Since we only have 1 player, we will have more space for the other 2 tournaments. If you are interested in those first two tournaments and don't have a ticket, please show up with generic tickets(4 - total $8 ) and an army and we will get you in!


Orange Mailman - you are good here.

Still got a shot at second place. :)
See you soon.

Ok - will do. Only think is he may not want to do whole tournament either (he's not that experienced) so thought of splitting it - but I'll convince him to do even if neither of us will in we'll have fun. I'll buy a ticket for the C3G tourney and will play if someone provides the army, or otherwise slide into other event that slot.
