Chuck beat me to it, but yes we need to start thinking about events.

Was anything this last year a bust? (sealed teams...)

Was anything that you really wanted to see missing?

Our sealed events always seem to be better attended than our constructed events. Would you be willing to sacrifice something like single race or no magicians for a sealed event? Maybe we could do a draft event?

Here's the deal: We'd like to have all the possible events (anything that anyone comes up with), and then post a vote for the top 9 events. We would put up the vote on December 20, and cut off the vote by January 5.

Note: If Cliff or I can't understand your event, it will not run. Sorry, but we have to know what the event is. So a good (short) description is a necessity. And by short, GenCon wants the event description under 300 characters.

Thoughts? Wild Events? Volunteers to run the events?

I think we have to run 9 Dragon Diceā„¢ events, but in addition to the Daemon Diceā„¢ Novice, I think we could run at least one Daemon Diceā„¢ event a day if not 9. Lets wait and see what the submissions are.

I believe you have to include Battlefest, Constructed, Single Race, and Worlds (also Constructed), as well as a sealed event. I like the idea of a "Constructed Starter" event to encourage the newer players to try another event with only a modest inventory of dice.

I have some other ideas (scenarios, really), but I need to develop them further before I'm confident enough to propose it as an event.

We can start putting it into the Gencon registration system on jan 10th (and I like to do it early). So all we really need is a name and description if you want to propose something.

I also need to know what you want to put in for Campaigns Smile

I'll take one morning slot, one afternoon slot, and one evening slot. I have no preferences on which slot for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so you can assign them in as you see fit.

Anyone else? I assume johnK and Chuck.

Shoe?

I figure Ken is still busy running events for some other game...

Once the Eldest WiggsSon chooses a university, the Wiggs will have to figure that out, So call it 2 +- 1

I'm not holding my breath on Kevin.

Will/Dave, I would rather you guys stay and support PaxPrime if you can than come to Gencon.

Steve?

That list is really light...
