Re: Announcing CoVCon: July 29th-August 1st

Can we have an old school tournament like all the ones we use to have when it was a living game -- Meaning we all have to bring a prize ( with a $20 idea of a gift, but if your young or poor anything goes, if your old and doing well bring what ever you can, and of course if your an artist bring some of your artwork ( thinking of custom HS stuff that people use to bring and was the most sought after prize, although at my tourneys hand blown glass was usually picked first, some weird dude always showed up with glass he buys in china and try's and pawns it off as his own ).

To me one of my favorite things was at the end when everyone under the top 4 or 5 winners, had a giant roll off with D20 to see who got the next prize.

GC is a model, but this the HS community Convention, we need to own this ****, well in my mind.

What about a potluck meal, or snack we plan ( thinking first day ) - if some us want to bring some of our favorite dishes that are premade or easy make on the spot it would feel like an old school tourney. People flying in may not be able to, but some of the locals, and those of us driving could be as simple as a box of stuff, or a cooler with a Tupper wear and ice ). If this sounds to weird, no worries, just wanted to throw that out there.

Re: Announcing CoVCon: July 29th-August 1st

Fly to Ohio, where I grew up, then drive over.

Add Mike Flak to the list ( he has never been to GC, but he did win the first ever Ohio Tourney held by Screaming Truth himself, you can see him pictured in one of the old Codex webzines standing by me, the 2nd placer. ), He has MS and walks with a cane, so GC was never an real option for him, but this is a perfect setting.

Re: Announcing CoVCon: July 29th-August 1st

Is there anyone interested in a

Star realms tourney?

I will have a couple of decks, it a great filler game if you get crushed quickly

I am interested in Star Realms tourney. Orc won't play because there is an even chance I will beat him.

Re: Announcing CoVCon: July 29th-August 1st

Just a quick update:

We heard back from another hotel, and we have another 1-2 that are going to contact us soon. As such, we won’t be able to release details on pricing this Saturday, as we have the buying/negotiating power right now. We only have a fairly firm quote from one hotel, so we want to see what other hotels can do for us before committing. My dad’s working hard to get us the best deal he can.

That being said, it’s still my goal to release events on Saturday (along with a CoV episode talking through them and announcing the prize structure).

Re: Announcing CoVCon: July 29th-August 1st

I definitely will be bringing some games by Craig Van Ness, Rob Daviau, and Colby Dauch. Battleball with @mrbistro Advanced Rules anyone? Fireball Island or Unmatched/Star Wars: Epic Duels (I have even mixed and matched)? Original or new version of Summoner Wars?

Re: Announcing ScapeCon: July 29th-August 1st

I’ve gotten enough feedback from independent parties that have said that CoVCon is too close to Covid. Thinking about it, wearing my CoVCon t-shirt around GenCon in the future would probably be a pretty bad look. As such, I’m changing the name to ScapeCon.

Of course it is. It was a stupid name. This is much better.

Lol, thanks!

I swear CoVCon is fine if you just say it out loud and don’t read it... which is what I was doing when I came up with it...
