April 14th, 10am. At I'm Board! 6917 University Ave, Middleton, Wisconsin 53562 This tournament is mostly going to be a non-competitive event with the goal being to tell a story through play, rather than simply determining which of us plays best. Due to the story-driven format, players will choose a single Master to play throughout the day, though your list will not be fixed. All players will be playing a different Master. I will also need to know if you're planning on playing by April 1st; please do message me before that. The cost is $20, and, due to the unique format, I'll need to know for certain you are coming, so the cost is due upon registration. If you have any questions, feel free to message me or comment here.
Hey, all! I'm going to be running open Malifaux events every Monday at I'm Board! in Madison, WI. I'll usually be there at 5:30. If you're in the area and want a demo or just a relaxed place to pick up a game, swing by and we'll be sure to greet ya. You should also look up the Malifaux - Madison WI group on Facebook to check for updates, gaming partners, or alternative dates/times for Malifaux.
Well, a hello to all of the Wyrd forums. After spending several months in Sweden, which had a rather excellent Malifaux scene, I returned to the United States to find that there aren't a lot of people playing this game. Seeing as I thought I needed something to do in-between my Bachelor's degree and heading off to graduate school, I figured I may as well help to foster the Malifaux scene here in Madison. What does this mean for you, the reader? It means that there will be a Malifaux demo at Pegasus Games, that ever-so-wonderful purveyor of nerd-related items on March 5th. Here's the details; - Five pre-built crews will be available for demonstration and test play for people; one from each faction. Each crew will also come with a short summary sheet, detailing basic strategy with them, boxes to check off wounds, and tactics against the other crews. - The games will run with pre-selected scenarios, depending on the experience of the players with miniatures gaming in general. - A printout of quick reference rules will be available, as well as copies of all the available rulebooks and errata sheets. - Several more experienced players will be along to help new players learn the game, as well as arbitrate in the case of rules confusion and needed clarifications. We'll also have enough models to play a few full-sized games afterward, if people are interested, although I cannot guarantee that all of the miniatures will be anything more than primed and based for that portion. Here's the nitty-gritty details: Date: March 5th, 2011 Location: Pegasus Games, located at 6640 Odana Rd, Madison, WI 53719-1012 Time: 2-6PM for the official demonstration, with some of my demonstration crew probably hanging around afterward for full-sized games. City: Madison, WI Size Limit: We're looking to give players about an hour for the demonstration game, so it looks like we can handle about 16 people all in all, although more are welcome to come, watch, and ask questions. A few other folks might bring partially assembled/unpainted crews, so that could expand the number of demos we can give. Thanks a ton for anyone showing interest, and I hope to see a few people out there at Pegasus. Demonstration Crews: - Perdita Ortega - Nicodem - Rasputina - The Dreamer/LCB - Von Schill Newcomers will be steered towards the easier lists, while more experienced miniatures gamers will be pointed to the crews requiring a bit more finesse and understanding. Additionally, as mentioned, there will be sheets detailing strategy, good tips for unit use, and for use tracking wounds.
When: Saturday, September 10th, 6-10PM Where: GeekKon (http://geekkon.com/) in Madison, WI (Marriott Madison West 1313 John Q. Hammons Drive Middleton, Wisconsin 53562) First up, a little background; Geek.Kon is a convention that grew up right when I started going to university out here in the Midwest. It started off as a little fan-run convention inside one of the university's larger buildings. Well, as you can tell, they've grown a little bit bigger as time has passed. I noticed that, despite this convention's absolute love of steampunk, there was not a single Malifaux demo or tournament to be found. Deciding that this would be terrible, I decided that it would be best to quickly run. Games will be at 15SS, simply to show players the absolute basics and get them a bit of time on a table playing a game. We've got enough space and miniatures for about 6 players at a time, and I'll be frantically running around trying to help people out, although I should have some assistance and pre-printed documents to make my life a little less hectic. So, if you're interested in the game and looking for a demonstration, stop on by, and if you're a veteran player, stop and chat for a little bit. Selected Crews for this demo; Perdita Ortega Lady Justice (In her somewhat less-than-capitated form thanks to the Dead Justice box) Seamus Rasputina Von Schill As I'm expecting a few less "new" players, we've also got Nicodem, Ramos, and the Dreamer, to give the more experienced miniatures players a chance to mess around with something interesting that really shows the flair of Wyrd's system. Terrain is a mix between some scratchbuilt stuff and a nice little set-up made from Wyrd's own Terraclips, so that a nice little game can take place in the sewers of Malifaux. Hope to see a few people there!
