  1. After a large move I'm back up and ready to run open demos for the local game community. Currently I'll be available at Isle of Games, 7747 East Broadway Blvd, on Tuesdays between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m., though this may change to Monday during the month of November, update pending. Look forward to seeing some new faces!
  2. As stated by the title, November's open rpg day at Isle of Games will be Through the Breach. All comers welcome, we'll be doing a simple introductory campaign between 12 and 4 p.m., session may run slightly longer or shorter than that, as sometimes happens, but will try to fall within that time frame. Hope everyone is ready for some organized chaos!
  3. In conjunction with the staff at my lgs, Isle of Games, we will be hosting a series of demos and an impromptu rapid growth league event for the month of November. Every Monday in November between 5 and 9 p.m. I'll be available at the store hosting the event. Newcomers and veterans alike are welcome to come in and participate, hope to see you there! If anyone wishes to contact me about specifics for the league, I'm open to messages via the forum. You can also find information via the isle of games Facebook page found here: https://m.facebook.com/isleofgames/ Edit: to facilitate the event I'll likely be there a bit earlier than 5 on the first week, and will also be available the previous Tuesday at my usual time to discuss entry into and questions about the league.

  21. Amazing Discoveries is hosting another demo night to build a player base. Come learn the game, play the game, and make friends or visit with old ones. A few more players and we'll start a simple league. Monday, July 23, 2012; 1900-2100 Amazing Discoveries, 2410 East Broadway Boulevard Tucson, AZ 85719; (520) 320-0338
  22. This month's tourney is our first in-town event to feature a cross-store crowd. We graciously invite players from Peoria/Phoenix/etc. to join us yet again to have an awesome time and play a great game! Painting/basing is not required, but we'll be doing a painted crew/model contest for everyone if we have enough people! 35 SS Scrap Tournament 12 PM - 7 PM 4 Rounds (80 min ea. -- 10 min breaks, 30 min lunch) Format: Gaining Ground - Expanded Shared Strategies (restricted), Limited Faction Pool (55 SS Henchman/Minion list), unique schemes (restricted) REQUIRED MATERIALS: $5 gets you in the door. Bring at least enough Minions and one Master/Henchman to play at our 35 SS game size. Bring enough Minion support or Master/Henchman variety for your faction to deal with a few different possible scenarios if possible. Tape measure, printouts/stat cards/books with most recent or V2/V3 cards (I AM LOOKING AT YOU, Leveticus) - especially for book 1 folks, markers that can clearly indicate wounds, something to clearly represent your Soulstone count to the opposition, and appropriate Tokens/bases to represent corpses/scraps/flame walls/etc. Special considerations: 1) Calling time allows for the active player to finish an activation, and for each player to activate ONE further model (subsequent use of Companion or simultaneous activation not allowed beyond the first additional activation) - then, resolve any Start and End Closing Phase triggered abilities before determining the winner. 2) Forfeit in-game and between rounds will be viewed with extreme scrutiny, as will end-game results that seem "fixed." I deal with 160 kids on a regular basis who love to cheat and lie their way through life. If you're going to play Malifaux, do it right, and cheat with your Control cards. Wyrd says I can DQ you otherwise. And if you're frustrated that you're losing, do it the right way and play all the rounds through... you'll be a better player some day, you just haven't lost enough yet! Just ask Garrett or Paul... (please excuse the previous Tucson in-joke) Many other things can get you DQ'd, from being a jerkbag, delaying the progress of the game, etc, so just don't be THAT GUY. 3) There will be no Special Features on the tables. Height of all terrain will cap at 4 (ceilings are Ht 5 in-doors) , and you must agree with your opponent on the qualities of all terrain BEFORE TURN ONE, or call me over to make a judgement during the game if you can't agree when it's too late. PRIZE SUPPORT: Depending on attendance, we will offer up a variety of prize support options, all of which will be fulfilled by way of product off the wall supplied directly by our host, Hat! These may range from basing kits / hats & guns, to blisters, all the way up to small boxes or starters. Play hard and win big!... and carpool so you can win bigger!

First league night for February will be February 5th!!! ~J~
