Colleges That Play Heroscape

A throwaway comment by Loborocket about his son wanting to attend UConn because of the Heroscape tournaments there set me thinking. If you're going to be spending four years of your life (and tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars) at a college or university, shouldn't you at least check out the Heroscape scene there first?

We probably have lots of members here who are around the right age to be thinking about college and more who are currently at, or associated with, a college. It seemed a good idea to me to have a thread where we could list the colleges where there was significant Heroscape activity, and maybe a bit about the college too (you probably shouldn't be making college choices entirely for 'scape reasons). This means that potential students can talk to someone with whom they share at least one interest at a college to which they might consider applying. Maybe if you visit you can even get a game in.

If you post details of your college or university here, I'll update this first post with a list of information. I'm thinking that the name and state of the college, a contact at heroscapers.com, a paragraph about the college and a paragraph about Heroscape there is about the right amount of information to start with. It's not Princeton's The Best 368 Colleges or Colleges That Change Lives, but maybe some will find it useful.

Here's the list so far; keep 'em coming!

There is also a group of about 7-10 who play when we can on campus. Me and my fiance are always looking for a game too. So games aren't going to be hard to find there. Our group also likes to throw at least 1 all night game day a semester (sometimes 2) and I try to organize a small tournament every semester as well.

As far as Academics go, I guess you could say we're liberal arts with degrees in Nursing, History/Pre-Law, Teaching (Elementry, Middle, Secondary English and Social Studies, and Music for all levels), Psychology, Social Work, and numerous Ministry Degrees. We're very small, only about 500-600. Think that's everything.

The Heroscape: There were a couple of tournaments in 2008 and should be at least one in 2009. Semi-regular Heroscape and Guitar Hero sessions on Saturday afternoons and other 'scaping on an ad hoc basis. Also, we're in the heart of NESA territory, so most months there is a tournament within a couple of hours' drive.

NCU is a small private liberal arts college with about 500-600 students and about 30 full-time faculty. There are degrees offered in a variety of fields including Ministry, English, Teacher Education, Business Administration, and Mathematics. The college is also very community based.

As for Heroscape, there's about four of us that try and play when our schedules allow us to and we know people who have played before and we usually can get one of them to play. Not much is organized in the way of tournaments, but it has been discussed. Oh, and be forewarned that we usually tend to play big epic games. You can put me down as a contact.

...

Incidentally, there is a lot more of us that play Heroscape at Northwest Christian. It's not surprising for us to have 8 to 10 people every time we play which is becoming more and more frequent almost biweekly (once every two weeks not twice every week).

Again, to be clear, we haven't played on any of these campuses, but students from all of these have come to our games at War and Pieces in Davie, literally right next to BC and NSU. We have done at least one tourney a year and average an organized game day every month or two, but War and Pieces is pretty much always open for some Scape.

Re: Colleges That Play Heroscape

Although LongHeroscaper is more qualified than me (since he is on the faculty of UCA) to comment.

I have played HeroScape on the campuses of the University of Central Arkansas, Conway, Arkansas; and Arkansas State University, Heber Springs, Arkansas campus.

Re: Colleges That Play Heroscape

For the next couple years there will be Heroscape games played near the University of Findlay in Northeast Ohio. I don't know if it will happen on campus, but Drake guards the desk in my office.

Re: Colleges That Play Heroscape

It seems as though there is plenty of Heroscape played in Madison, Wisconsin, though, as a University of Minnesota alum, I can never recommend that anyone should be a Badger.

2011 most played: 1. Heroscape/Monsterpocalypse/Quarriors. 4. Warhammer Invasion. 5. Last Night on Earth.

Re: Colleges That Play Heroscape

I'm assuming it is the University of Wisconsin, but I would not want to be any more involved than that. We have several other posters on here who live in Madison and one of them would certainly be more qualified to help out here than I am.

You rock, Ollie. Great list. I should have added something like, "we have done at least one tourney a year and average an organized game day every month or two, but War and Pieces is pretty much always open for some Scape."

Re: Colleges That Play Heroscape

I go to Kentucky Christian University in Grayson, KY. Its only about 2 and a half hours from Louisville (where the tournament scene is picking up greatly and Louisville is the "headquarters" of OVAH). About 3 hours from Dayton, there's a tournament there every other month or so. I usually attend tournaments in both of these places depending on work schedule so I'm up for car pooling.

There is also a group of about 7-10 who play when we can on campus. Me and my fiance are always looking for a game too. So games aren't going to be hard to find there. Our group also likes to throw at least 1 all night game day a semester (sometimes 2) and I try to organize a small tournament every semester as well.

We're very small, only about 500-600. Think that's everything.

Btw, this is a good idea Ollie. I'd be happy to be a contact. If I can't answer a question, I'll find the answer or point you to someone who can answer it.
