When tournaments were common in New England, my rule was that I'd drive anywhere as long as there was as much 'scape time as driving time. I stretched occasionally, but that seemed like a good rule of thumb.
Yes, seems like a good rule of thumb. For me on the southern Jersey shore it would be a stretch, since it would be 5 hours of gaming vs. almost 7 hours of driving. I haven't played any 'Scape in way too long, so it's always a tempting proposition. I'm not committing to anything yet, but definitely considering the possibilities. Basically, I just chiming in to get the additional updates and be reminded - these next 3 weeks will fly like and arrow.

So just stick around for the open gaming afterwards- then you'll play as much as you'll drive.

This is a bad weekend for me and it sounds like it's going to be tough for much of the Jersey crew unfortunately.

Re: Savage Reverse the Whip! 7/1 in Savage, MD

I got my new car and that means I'll be at the tournament!

Edit: I believe I'll be bringing Wo-Sa-Ga, one squad of Nagrubs and three squads of Marrden Hounds.

Excellent. Congrats on the car, my friend.

Still waiting on akden, but I know he hasn't forgotten.

Re: Savage Reverse the Whip! 7/1 in Savage, MD

Hey we were starting to plan our trip down and realized we don't know what to bring. None of us have ever been to a tournament before. Just wanted to have a little time to get everything together and make sure we have what we need.

Re: Savage Reverse the Whip! 7/1 in Savage, MD

Excellent question. In years gone by that was in the OP but somewhere along the way it fell out.

Bring your armies including cards. You only need one card for three squads of Stingers or three Drow Chainfighters, because they're common. You need separate cards for three Fen Hydras, because they are uncommon. Also, bring combat dice, a 20 sider for each of you, and order markers.

There is some food in the mall but not a food court or anything, so I get lunch a few blocks away on Route 1, and I bring that. Specifically I go to Las Delicias food truck, but there's a McDonald's and whatever too.

Parking at the mall is plentiful but a little tricky. There's a small lot up front that will likely be full but follow signs to the big lot in back.

That should be everything. If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask.

Re: Savage Reverse the Whip! 7/1 in Savage, MD

Sounds like fun, but it will be a little bit before I know if we can make it. I will let you more as I know it.

good trades with rudyvalentine, crazytankster, and Jexik.

Well it would be nice if hosey could come, and maybe bring his dad.

Re: Savage Reverse the Whip! 7/1 in Savage, MD

Definitely super interested! I'm going to see if I can take off that day. I should be able to, and I will post back here after I know. I'm also going to see if I can bring my brothers, if that's okay.
