In between the two conventions, there's a post by hero titled IT'S HERE!!!! on 8/8/2004 where he says he bought a master set at WalMart. I'm guessing it first hit store shelves in the previous week; so August is good enough for me. I vote we make 8/8/2004 the birth date for Heroscape based on hero's IT'S HERE!!! post on HS.Net.
I like the idea of using the date hero first purchased a master set as Heroscape's birth date. Another date could be the game's official publication, which I believe was in June 2004, but I'm not sure what the exact publication date is yet.

What do you guys think? Should we give Heroscape a birth date?
I second Xorlorf's date (7/7/2004) because Hero said:

It's the birthdate of HeroScape fandom; the proud papa, after months and weeks of anticipation, blurry shelf pics, etc., finally brings the bouncing baby boy home from the hospital. He's got it in his hands, and now he's telling The Whole World! about it.

No, I'm sure it's on the 3rd Saturday. In 2011 most events were on the 15th, in 2010 most events were on the 16th, in 2009 the 17th, etc. Of course, there's always a few events that deviate from the standard.
Definitive proof is that the first NHSD was October 21, 2006, which was the third Saturday in October that year.

that would be truly epic !
However, some people host NHSD events one or two weeks away from the "official" day when it works better for people's schedules. It doesn't really matter what day it is, as long as a bunch of people are having fun playing Heroscape.

I now recall that I have hosted it before on the second week the last two times due to my schedule, and thus ingrained in myself that was when it happened.

My bad, I was mistaken. Thanks for the reminder, arp12.

Re: Heroscape's Birthday 8/8/2004 ?

I guess the question is: should the date celebrate the "first fan" getting it, or when everyone could get it?

Re: Heroscape's Birthday 8/8/2004 ?

Well met!

Since the universe began its existence when I first opened my eyes, naturally, I'll celebrate NHSD on that day (3/31). It should be comforting to all of you to know that, since the universe will cease to exist when I do, Heroscape will continue to live at least until then.

Happy Birthday, Heroscape!

Nine years ago, hero was opening his advanced copy of RotV and getting ready to show it to everyone on heroscape.net.
