This is terrific news. That is outstanding, fomox. If @MegaSilver ran a Take 2 C3V/SoV event during Open Play, I imagine that might get some attention.
Yeah, that's the plan.

I'll post them sometime on the 15th, I believe. I have to try to secure my Thursday event first!

Re: Gen Con 2016

For AotP, I take it that spell decks will be 12 cards at 200 points?

Sure, but if someone isn't a fan of double blind they're limited to the main event (which only stops being double blind on day 2 but you might get some advantages on day 1) and open play (depending on what they/others set up). That doesn't really feel like options to me.

Again, I appreciate all the hard work and effort that goes in and I am pretty certain I will have fun scaping regardless. It just feels a little barren for my play preferences is all.

Not to beat a dead horse but then set something up during an open play time frame if you don't see something you want to do...

Mega has been doing if for several years, without complaining even...

Re: Gen Con 2016

Trying to apply Mega-Standards to everyday people is a bit lofty.

Your point is inarguable though. You have provided the format for anyone to run any event they want.

The main conflict for me is that I would want to run an Urban setting where I would need a relatively flat map to place buildings upon. The AotP maps work fairly well for quick set up but I doubt there will be any empty space for new maps.

I would love to bring C3G to Gen Con but I think we will have to find a location to set up for some free play. That is of course if I can get all the cards, figures and most importantly, the buildings ready for transport.

I got to play in Grishnakh game that was incredibly fun one year and it would be great to host something like that.

Nice work setting everything up this year.

Re: Gen Con 2016

Fomox, thanks for organizing things this year! Anticipating many of the main event matches going to time, is there any thought of moving to partial-card scoring this year? It seems fairer to me, at the expense of doing more laborious (and error-prone) math.

Re: Gen Con 2016

Full card scoring rewards people who spend more points per squad, which, while encouraging more variation in unit usage, gives an unnecessary advantage before the game even starts.

I would love an answer to this.

I need to know if there is a chance someone will have all Bountiful Harvest spells in their hand.

I am not running the event, but I think the answers to your two questions are yes and no respectively. Multiples of spells was said to be illegal somewhere by someone official, but I cannot find it. 200 points is the spell deck cost used everywhere and any more/less is impossible for someone with just the base game.
