GenConGenCon starts this Thursday! Plaid Hat Games will have a full delegation there, including the Plaid Hat Booth in the exhibit hall. Come by, demo some games (including Mice & Mystics) and if you're quick grab one of 100 each of Saella's Precision or Bellor's Retribution. (Edit: Err, I'm not advocating a Raid, here, pay Colby the cash. :P)

Colby mentioned on yesterday's podcast that all Dougs should stop by the booth at noon on Friday to sing the Plaid Hat Podcast theme song together. Go for it!

Sadly, I won't be attending this year, which is too bad, because the tournaments are gonna rock. Here's the rundown:

  • Faction Battles Starter Decks only (Thursday PM)
  • Pick Your Poison: Bring 2 faction decks; roll off. Opponent picks the deck you will play that round (Friday AM)
  • 4 x 4: like 5 for fighting but 4 deck 4 rounds. Final, if necessary, will be Pick your Poison (Friday PM)
  • Dungeon Run: 4-5 games with winner of each game advancing to final game. (Saturday AM)
  • Faction Battles: One Deck to rule them all (Saturday PM)

According to James on the podcast yesterday, there's still spots open in the Dungeon Run and 4 x 4 tournaments! Sign up! Otherwise, at least stop by the booth and introduce yourself to the gang.

Although, like many of you, I will not be attending, I am very interested in the results! Let's hear everyone's predictions in the comments of which factions (or character, in Dungeon Run), will take home the gold in each event.***

My picks: Guild Dwarves for starter decks, Sand Goblins/Jungle Elves for Pick Your Poison, Phoenix Elves/Mountain Vargath/Filth/Tundra Orcs for 4x4, Addolgar Vayne for Dungeon Run  and Tundra Orcs for the Faction Battle.

See you (well I won't see you but other Plaid Hat people will) in Indy!

***(Note: No actual gold will be awarded. Point awarded for each deck/character correctly guessed from the winning competitor. Points not redeemable for actual prizes.)

Unfortunately I can't make it this year either due to a clerical error on my part. Poop.

Anyway, predictions:

Starter Decks = Oldin or Abua. Probably Oldin.
PYP = Oldin + Tundle
4x4 = Elien, Oldin, Abua, Grognack
Faction Battles = Oldin
Dungeon Run = Emma Goodluck, but Oldin might find a way to win that, too.

I hope I'm wrong and not everyone plays Oldin...

@Dustin; I too hope someday that games stop holding their big tournaments on the same days, at the same convention, in the middle of nowhere Indiana.

Predictions: Shadow Elves or Guild Dwarves take the Summoner Wars tournaments.

Pick your Poison is easy. I just bring Benders + the faction I want to play. No one will ever pick Benders.
