  4. Cow Wars 4: A New Friesian moves back to the edge of Milton Keynes and also returns to its roots in that a main aim will be to raise money for a local charity.

Entry: £15 with a target of half going to charity (depends upon numbers of course). Prize pool will hopefully be supplemented by some sponsorship - already have some interesting items for the faction winners!

  5. Hey all, For those who don't know, I'm a high school teacher, and one of the clubs I manage is the school's gaming club. Our yearly "big event" is Extra Life, a 25 hour gaming marathon where donors sponsor me, my students, and close friends/family to play and raise money for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. This will be the FOURTH YEAR we've put this shindig on, averaging over $2,000 each year to our local children hospital in Medford, OR. This year, we've gone though a bit of an upgrade. Normally we play in my classroom (and at a local gaming store when they open a little later), but last year has shown we've outgrown the space. In response, one of my seniors has successfully booked the Best Western Convention Center in Yreka,CA from 8am Nov. 5th to 8am Nov. 6th. While most of my students will be on consoles or doing card games, my small M2E-meta outside of school will be completing our Shifting Loyalties League throughout the 25 hours. If you would like to join us for this great celebration of gaming for a great cause, I'll try to host additional small Wyrd events during the day like demos, open tables, painting sessions, Henchmen Hardcores, or Enforcer Brawls (depending on demand). I can't guarantee a full fledged tourney (again since our League is concluding), but if you and friends come to play Wyrd products with us, I'll have some Guilders jingling in my pocket ready to hand out. No entry fee or anything; all that I request is if you would like to visit us anytime throughout the 25 hours (or if you want to contribute to our efforts), donate and sponsor myself or one of my students. All proceeds are #FTK For updates on this event and others we host in the Southern Oregon/Northern California region, follow our M2E meta at Jefferson State Malifaux Facebook. You can find event itself at it's Facebook Event Page. Cheers!
  6. Hey Wyrd friends! If you are in the Calgary, AB area, check out this tournament I'm helping to organize! I am happy to be a part of developing a charity event to help welcome refugees to the city of Calgary and the rest of southern Alberta. If you'd like to come and have a great time gaming, eating baked goods (available by donation) and winning fantastic prizes come down to Imaginary Wars on December 20th to partake in a Malifaux Tournament! It'll be a beginner tournament where all levels are welcome. Details for everything will be on our Facebook page do feel free to check it out! As a bonus, instead of paying the door fee (proceeds to CCIS refugee fund), you can go directly to: https://www.ccisab.ca/support-to-keep-us-going and donate $20 and bring in a receipt on game day to wave the entry fee and get a door prize! This will be a 35 Soulstone event with 3 rounds planned. Each round will be allotted 2 hours for setup time and actual gameplay. While Wyrd events do have a painting requirement, it will be waived for this event to encourage our growing community to participate! For this event players will be limited to a single faction. Crews are not restricted so you’ll be able to change them for each match. The schemes will be announced each round; strategies and deployments for the rounds are as follows: Round 1: Extraction / Standard Deployment Round 2: Guard the Stash / Corner Deployment Round 3: Collect the Bounty / Close Deployment Also, as this is a charity event there will be the opportunity to purchase (through donation) advantages in-game; the exact nature of this will be revealed at the event. This will understandably lead possibly one-sided matches but the intent of the event it is primarily to raise money and to just get people playing games, so please come with that in mind!

Among those in need are our Veterans who've so bravely put there lives on the line for our freedom. I can not fathom what it must be like to be such a respected person, but overlooked at the same time. With that being said, I've done some research and was able to find a "needs list" from our local VA hospital. I will be donating this season, and I invite you all to make a donation with me. Community service is so important and making a difference in someone's life is truly the best gift you can possibly give. I am willing to pick up donations, as well as deliver them.

My wife will be making food as long as there are enough pre-registers. All proceeds will go to the charity.

  10. Salutations Wyrdos! I'm a high school teacher, and I advise for a gaming club on our campus, and am pleased to announce our third annual Extra Life event! If you're a regular listener to Mali-podcasts, I know some hosts (like the gang at Critical Condition, Cheated Fates, Lost Boys Radio, and Faux-hio) are very passionate about this charity event. For us, even though we've only done this event for two years in a SUPER rural area, my high schoolers and I have made $3500+ in donations to the Children's Miracle Network. Which brings me to you, the Wyrdos! I doubt anyone can join me, my wife, and my small Mali-meta to play any Nythera games or Through the Breach with us during the 25 hours in Yreka CA during Halloween 2015 (all are welcome if you can!), but if you'd like to donate to our cause, we'd really appreciate the help! Sponsor me or, even better, one of my gamer kids at our Roster Page, and we will be eternally grateful! #ForTheKids Thanks!
  11. Hey everyone! We're going to be running a charity tournament at the Coliseum of Comics located in the Fashion Square Mall on Sat., Nov 14th at 3pm. Entry is any 2 critically needed goods such as canned goods, dried foods, diapers, etc., which will be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank.

However, anyone who brings in additional items to be donated can use them during the game for various actions. Trade in the item in order to: - Add a "+" to any flip (max 3 times per flip) - Add a "-" to opponent's flip (max 3 times per flip) - Reflip any one card (no max) - Substitute as a soulstone We're hoping to get a lot of people out to this, so if you live in the area, tell your friends. Let's prove that good things can happen in Malifaux once and a while!
  12. It's that time of year again. I am posting this on behalf of the venue hosting, the gaming group, DorkaMorka, in Watertown, MA. This will be the 2nd annual Mali-fest, 50ss 3 Round Gaining Grounds tournament. Come close out the year end with the last 2014 GG event in the area. NOTICE: 21+ only as this is in a Eagles Hall and has a bar, there is NO way around this Admission: Free with unwrapped toy donated during registration Registration: Pre-register in this thread or on the DorkaMorka site link here (both will be checked, no need to post on both), this will GREATLY help us plan table space! When: Dec. 13 2014, 11am Reg, 11:30am Cards Flip No painting requirements, but strongly encouraged! One Note....parking is best in the CVS behind or in the parking area behind the venue. Give yourself 15minutes extra to accommodate for finding a parking spot. So see you there. Any questions post here or in DorkaMorka post and as always feel free to PM me! For your enjoyment here are photos from last year. http://s1303.photobucket.com/user/Jonasty1031/slideshow/Mali-Fest%202013
  13. Fellow extra-lifers (and gamers of the like)!!! I am running a fun achievement event during Extra-Life on Nov. 2nd. I expect a bit of Malifaux to be played so why not raise money doing it! Since 25 hours of games is a long time, lets do something to help support and promote donations. Even if you aren't planning on gaming for 25 hours, come whenever you want and play how ever much or little you'd like! It's all casual and fun and obviously for a great cause. The winner will be announced towards the end of the event. The 'rules' are going to be as follows: * NO pre-reg...registration is when you show up, any $ amount you feel comfortable donating (minimum $5) will be used for the 'prize' pool. This will get you a copy of the achievement sheet to fill out as you play Malifaux games. See me at the event, I'll have my Henchman shirt on. * Play as many games of Malifaux as you'd like with as many people you'd like trying to complete goofy and odd achievements ....one of them may even require you to paint a model, so bring some paint another may be to play your first game of Malifaux * There will only be a 1st place prize, and the prize will be the pool of $ raised. The winner then gets to choose which Extra-Life campaign they'd like the money donated to. The idea here is that if you have your own pledge page you can try and win for your own campaign, and if you don't have a pledge campaign you can win and raise money for a friend who needs a little extra $ to reach his/her donation goal. So please, seriously consider coming over to the Manchester store. I believe Myriad is opening the doors at 8am until about 9am Sunday Nov. 3rd. The address for Myriad is: Myriad Games: Manchester 1525 South Willow St. Manchester, NH (In the plaza with Chuck E Cheese, Staples, and Hobby Lobby) (603) 623-4263 If you can't make it and just want to donate, my campaign is in need of a little extra cash and can be found at: http://www.extra-life.org/participant/adamh If you need to get a hold of me you can either post here, PM me, or email me (wyrd-games [AT] thehelblings.com) Cheers and hope some (any) of you can make it! -Adam H.
  14. Just a quick shout out to let you all know about A Tale of 3 Painters. Three bloggers will be painting up a Malifaux crew box in their own unique styles, then we're off to Devon to have a game with the finished crew against The JoeyBerry. The crew will then be auctioned off for Cancer Research UK. For more details visit the introduction post… http://the-dark-templar.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/a-tale-of-3-painters-for-charity.html Thanks.
