I knew this was coming, I was just hoping it wasn't coming yet.

Event space at Gencon is at a premium, there are more and more groups requesting events and the space isn't getting any larger. Thus they are running reports on 'empty chairs' and we just popped up on the 'naughty list'.

I did this on purpose because we were getting away with essentially 'free' demo space. But no more until our event attendance numbers come up.

I'm going to have to go through and cut some events I would rather have kept. Try to find a balance between new players and existing players...

Reducing our events, this is how I felt:


But as painful as it was, I'm done. As soon as it gets approved by Gencon, I'll post the new schedule of events here, but the short version is:

Morning and Night Novice events for both games
No Mid-day Novice Events
No non-novice Daemon Diceā„¢ events

The best way to allow us to host more events in the future is to attend and encourage others to attend the events we have this year.

I would also suggest promoting the games at your local game stores and try to organize the group to go to GENCON together. I would even consider car pooling from the East Coast, if my health and finances allow it.

Thursday night is always Cliffs Crazy format. So this is part constructed and part sealed.

Dragon Diceā„¢:Mercenaries
Bring any 20-health army,terrains&dragons. A random pack will be added to your build at the start of the first round. No expansion, promo dice allowed. Swiss format.
Max Players: 12
Cost: $ 8
Date/Time: 8/4/16 7:00 PM - Duration: 4

Bring a normal 20 health army (so no more than 10 health magic).
Bring an extra dragon (so two).
In the end you'll have a 35 health army
You get to keep the kicker.
I don't know yet what race(s) for the kicker will be, but you won't get to choose.
If your pack makes you go over 50% magic (bonus for you, just like any sealed event)

What are the kicker options we can expect? Do we choose the kicker or is that random too?

I don't know yet what race(s) for the kicker will be, but you won't get to choose.

Unless someone convinces me to do something different in the next few days. Mr. Green

Some might argue this gives our forum readers an unfair advantage, but I don't care. Smile

The random piece of this event will be an Acolytes pack. Since there will be no Dragonkin there won't be any benefit to you accidentally bringing a 'matching' race or terrain.

BTW - Since the 3.0 rulebook doesn't use the term promo or expansion anymore. I'll have to reword the events for next year. For this year, it continues to mean the same dice it always has : minor terrains, items, dkin, etc.
